New Release Review | Burning Bond by Emma Hart
The youngest homicide detective in Holly Woods.
My best friend’s younger brother.
Off. Freaking. Limits.
I’ve told myself that for the past five years, and I’m going to keep telling myself that. Besides—I’m kind-of dating Jason. I don’t need Brody. I shouldn’t even want him, but want him, I do. Not that I have time to think about it. With Noelle and Drake in Mexico for two weeks, I’m holding down the fort at Bond P.I.
Or I was… until I stumbled upon a young woman who’d been attacked while walking my dog. Jason thinks it’s the latest in a long line of gang-rapes happening across three states. Brody thinks I’ve added a target to my back. Getting to the bottom of it is at the top of my to-do list.
Two men, both determined to protect me. I think I could love one. I’m almost certain I’m in love with the other. Ride or die just got a whole lot realer.
Burning Bond was such a captivating read due to both the love triangle and the mystery of the crimes. Both aspects of the novel keep your heart and mind busy and your emotions elevated. A scorching hot romance featuring two delicious men fighting over the heroine.
If you’ve been keeping up with this series, you know Bek has been dating Agent Jason Walters. However, she has an electrifying connection with Brody Bond, as well. And he doesn’t want to give her up so easily.
There’s been a competitive vibe between the two alphas and it continues here. It’s tough for the reader to pick a guy, so we can easily put ourselves in Bek’s shoes. Both men are incredible and deserving. Fortunately, this doesn’t overwhelm the entire book. There’s also, of course, danger and a mystery to be solved.
I know this book has been promoted as being able to stand alone, but I honestly think readers that haven’t been reading from the beginning will be missing out on aspects of the characters. After all, everything in this book has been building up since then.
Bek’s story isn’t just a filler to tide us over while we wait for the next and final book of Noelle and Drake’s. Emma Hart’s writing pulls you in with every page. Suspense, romance, and that good ol’ angst, Burning Bond has a little of everything to satisfy your bookish cravings.
Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.
She likes to be busy - unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
