"Bridges Burned" [Going Down In Flames Series, Book 2] by Chris Cannon

Author's Book Description : Don’t just fight the system...burn it.

Since discovering she is a shape-shifting, fire-breathing dragon on her sixteenth birthday (surprise!), Bryn McKenna’s world has been thrown into chaos. Being a “crossbreed”—part Red dragon and part Blue—means Bryn will never fit in. Not with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for rule-breaking...

But sneaking around with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he’s betrothed to someone else. Someone who isn’t a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for an added complication, it turns out Bryn’s former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate isn’t quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she’s caught between her desire to fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.

Because if Bryn can’t adapt to the status quo...well, then maybe it’s time for her to change it.

"Bridges Burned" is the second book in the Going Down In Flames Novels.

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! Of it's not one thing than it's another were Brynn is concerned. Brynn heads back to school thinking that things couldn't get any worse for her but instead finds herself losing three people who meant a lot to her and gaining a "family" she really didn't plan to have. What she learns in the process of everything else will shake up her values that much more, but will the knowing be worth everything else that she's already lost?

Wow ... in truth I enjoyed how "Going Down In Flames," book 1, was written (even though I didn't agree with some of Brynn’s choices -- like about not truly informing her parents) but I never expected book 2 to be even more action packed! It kept me glued to the pages! Yet, even though I feel for Brynn and all the heartache she deals with in this novel, I really liked the ramped up personalities that Jaxon & Valmont displayed in it too!! Jaxon & Valmont made this novel for me, because of their banter with Brynn and how they both grow closer to her in different ways. It's also intriguing to see that there is a "new" bad guy in the series and it’ll be interesting to see where Ms. Cannon will take the reader next.

I recommend this series to anyone who likes YA paranormal fantasy novels!

Book Teaser(s) :
“Thanks for watching out for me and for knocking off the benefactor crap.”
“You’re welcome.” A smile played across his lips. “It’s for the best that I rescinded my offer to act as your benefactor, because if my sister and your grandmother have their way, and if your lineage check to Jaxon comes back compatible, I might end up your uncle.”
“That’s not funny.” She might not hate Jaxon anymore, but she had no desire to be shackled to him in a Directorate-sanctioned farce of a marriage. She crossed her arms over her chest. “If they try to set me up with Jaxon I’m claiming lesbianism.”
Merrick laughed. ~ within Chapter 1
Bryn tensed as Lillith dialed. Who was she calling?
“May I speak to Mrs. Sinclair?”
Crap. Not her grandmother.
Jaxon turned to her with terror in his eyes. “Stop this,” he whispered.
“What do you want me to do?” she whispered back. “Tackle your pregnant mom and wrestle the phone away from her?”
Maybe her grandmother wouldn’t be able to join them.
“Good afternoon, Marie. It’s Lillith. Sorry for the late notice, but Jaxon and I ran into Bryn in Dragon’s Bluff and we planned to lunch at Fonzoli’s. Would you like to join us?”
Jaxon grabbed Bryn’s arm, holding her in place while Lillith kept walking. “Leave. Now.”
“I can’t just run off.” She jerked her arm from his grasp. “Pretend you’re sick or something.”
“Westgates never run from a conflict.”
“But it’s okay if I scurry off.”
“You have no family reputation to uphold,” Jaxon shot back.
“Now I’m staying, just to spite you.” She moved faster and caught up with Lillith. ~ within Chapter 19
