Burning Bright (Going Down in Flames #5
Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ❣
Will they won't they.
Bryn is back for senior year and ready for another bumpy ride at the dragon shifter school. Bryn's family want her to be a social butterfly and stand proud. Her engagement to Jaxon means they both have appearances to makes. They have both been through a lot. Jaxon has lost the only girl he ever loved and Bryn has given up her knight. The pair never had romantic feelings for each other but have gained respect for each other.
There is a new threat on campus and it is literally sucking the life out of the students. It means curfews and hall monitors until the situation is under control. Jaxon is given the chance to show he can be there for Bryn. He is struggling with his own feelings, but they are getting along better than ever before.
Bryn and Jaxon are both stubborn characters. They have their flaws and strong personalities, but they also have lots in common. throughout the series, Bryn has dated a few guys but didn't find a perfect match. This book gives closure to the past. Her family is important to Bryn and she wants to keep her relationship with her grandparents on good terms. The more time she spends with Jaxon the more she sees potential. He may be a Westgate but he isn't his father. Will Bryn at last, find the right guy?
I read book one first and then this book, which is possible but I would not recommend it. After finishing the series I found so much love for all the characters. I like the creative world Chris Cannon has created and each book offers a new adventure. Bryns life is full of surprises. She is a great character and watching her grow up in a shifter world was fun. She doesn't always get it right but she has a support network who keep her motivated.
I really like the Bryn/ Jaxon relationship dynamics. It's hot, it's cold and it's so confusing. This is an arranged marriage and I liked this element to the story. It's about finding the middle ground, compromise and maybe more. When I read book one I was a little taken back by the dragon shifter rules but Chris Cannon really made them work. I would love another book in this series, but I think this is the last book. I just can't get enough! The romance between Bryn and Jaxon fit the story but I would have liked more heat. I liked the family dynamics and Bryn has some great friends.
Burning Bright is a great instalment to this series. Going down in flames is aimed at the sweet teen audience and fits perfectly into this genre.
4.5 star out of 5. This is the perfect gift for that special teens birthday.
*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
