Brody Bond. 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 is book six of the Holly Woods Files series and tells Bek’s story. While it can be read as a standalone, it’s highly advised to read the complete series in order.)
“I want someone to look at me the way that Drake looks at Noelle. Like I’m the center of someone’s world. Like I’m the point of their entire universe to orbit around. Like I’m home.”
“You should know by now I’d do anything for you. So, if you want me to fight for you, Rebekah Hough, then I hope he’s got a fucking army ready and waiting. I’ll fight for you, and you better believe I’m gonna fight damn dirty.”
“My heart skips a beat as something tangible and real pushes through the anxiety and the guilt. It edges its way into the clusterfuck of my emotions, and it’s terrifying and thrilling. It grabs ahold of me, mingling with everything else I feel in the moment, and I’ll be damned if it lets go. Realization. That’s what it is…”
This. This is the book that we’ve all been waiting for. Finally. Finally we get Bek’s story. And let me tell you, Bek’s story does not disappoint. From the moment you pick up this book, you are sucked into Bek’s story. Noelle has left things in her hands while she goes on a much needed vacation, but you have to know even with Noelle gone, there is never a dull moment in Holly Woods. Bek’s story hits the ground running and I promise you, there is never a dull moment. From an easy case, to an unexpected danger, this story will keep you on your toes.
There’s not much I’m gonna say about Bek’s story, because I don’t want to spoil it for you. Here’s what I will tell you. This story is fun and entertaining. It has the great humor that we’ve come to know and love with this series. All of our favorite characters make appearances and they definitely know how to keep things interesting. This story has something for everyone. There is mystery, and suspense. There is danger and a case that desperately needs to be solved. There are exciting twists and turns. There is romance and some wonderful steamy moments. This book honestly has it all.
Burning Bond is a fantastic addition to The Holly Woods Files. This might be Bek’s story, but it certainly fits right in with this series. Bek’s story was everything that I wanted it to be and more. It is incredibly well written and will captivate you from page one. I loved every single moment of Bek’s story and my only complaint is that the story is now over.
