Today we have the blog tour for Bullets and Bonfires by Autumn Jones Lake! Check it out and grab your copy today!

Title: Bullets and Bonfires

Author: Autumn Jones Lake

The one man she’s always wanted is now the sexy sheriff of their hometown.

Battered but not broken, grad student Brianna Avery returns to the childhood home she abandoned four years ago. With her abusive ex behind bars, Bree needs the summer to relax and recover before returning to school. But her overprotective brother decides she needs someone to babysit her in his absence, and he picks the one person guaranteed to drive her nuts.

She’s the one woman he can’t have.

Telling Bree no has never been easy. Four years ago, Liam Hollister did it to preserve his friendship with his best friend—Brianna’s brother. Now, no matter how she tempts him, he’s determined to do the right thing. As deputy sheriff of their rural area, Liam is torn between protecting Brianna and wanting her for himself.

Take a risk or lose the chance.

Spending so much time alone together challenges them both. Old feelings and hurts resurface immediately. With each hot, sweaty day it’s harder to deny their attraction.

It’s going to be a long, hot summer.


Bullets and Bonfires is a complete stand-alone, but if you’re familiar with my Lost Kings MC series, Teller and Murphy make brief appearances throughout.

4.5 Stars 

I have yet to read anything Autumn Jones Lake has written that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed and been captivated by both the plot and characters. 

Bullets and Bonfires represents some of my favorite contemporary romance tropes:

Forbidden Romance 
Brother's Best Friend 
Small Town 
Friends to Lovers 

I adored the heroine Bree and the hero Liam, both are incredibly endearing and complex.  Bree is an intelligent, strong, yet vulnerable character.  I was drawn to her strength and her attitude to move on from her past.  She's a true survivor and her growth over the course of this book as she regains trust not only in herself but in others is undeniable. 

Liam is a prefect blend of strong, capable, protective, loyal, sweet, caring and kind alpha.  He also has a funny and dirty talking side that I adored. 

The chemistry and connection between this pair is undeniable and the love scenes are sweet, sexy and passionate. 

Bullets and Bonfires, is an emotion filled story and at times quite heartbreaking.  Told in a dual point of view, with action, angst and drama abounding I was completely enthralled with this story line.  I loved the secondary characters and hope at some point we will see their stories told.  

Autumn Jones Lake has written a really enjoyable contemporary romance, that I do not hesitate to recommend to anyone who has enjoyed her Lost Kings MC series. 

Autumn believes true love stories never end. She’s easily amused, a procrastinator and loves romances with true alpha heroes who cherish the sassy women they fall in love with. Her past lives include baking cookies, slinging shoes, and practicing law. Playing with her imaginary friends is her favorite job so far. Autumn prefers to write her romances on the classy side of dirty, and she’s a sucker for a filthy-talking, demanding alpha male hero. The bigger the better.
