BURNING BOND is book six of the HOLLY WOODS FILES series. While it can technically be read as a standalone, it's advised to read the first five books prior to this for full enjoyment.

Two men, both determined to protect me.
I think I love one. I’m almost sure I’m in love with the other.
Ride or die just got a whole lot realer.

A sizzling sexy romance hence why the title of this book is fitting to be called Burning Bond. Emma Hart once again heats up the pages as she captivates readers to be riveted with Bek’s story. I went into reading this book knowing that it was a love triangle and somehow I survived. If you know anything about me, I really hate love triangles because I am one of those readers who feels bad for the other party. Did I feel bad for the one who

Burning Bond is not a love triangle, it's THE love triangle. I didn't expect to fall in love with Bek the way I had with her counterpart Noelle. But alas, this quirky, mouthy girl stole my heart.

I usually refuse to read love triangles, but when it's written by Emma Hart and it's stuck right in the middle of one of my favorite series ever...you go in with hope and a bag of peanut butter M & M's to get you through. I survived and am absolutely thrilled with the decision our girl Bek makes for

I love this series and was super excited to know that Bek was getting a book. I couldn’t wait to find out who she would choose to be with, but - because I don’t want to spoil anything - I’m going to keep this review short and sweet.

Emma Hart knows how to write a great book. There is so much mystery that is mixed with chemistry. I rarely read love triangles, but this one was written so well. I did have a preference for who I wanted her with, but I knew I would enjoy it either way because Bek

Why did it have to end??!! I loved everything about this book! I loved getting to really know Bek better. We've always just known her has Noelle's best friend, but now she gets her chance to tell her story, and boy is it a good one!

Whose team am I on?
Team Jason?
Team Brody?
Team Bek? Which would be telling her to forget them both and go her own way. (Insert Music) "You can go your own waay! GO YOUR OWN WAAAAAY!" (Cut the music). I'm sorry, but Fleetwood Mac cannot be contained!

I can't believe that Burning Bond is the first book I read in the Holly Woods Files series.
I found myself sucked into this story right from the beginning and I could not put it down - it was an addictive read ,and now the only thing I want to do is read the whole series.

Burning Bond is Bek's story. It's not an ordinary story- it's a story full of angst, suspens, passion and love. Jason? Brodi?
The characters are flawless and this is what made the story

Whoa! This book will take you on a wild ride and have you thinking twice about going outside alone in the dark. I've always been a little paranoid about going outside in the dark, but wow, after this novel I may not go out at all.

This novel kept me confused on how to feel. I was scared due to the mystery and I had anxiety about which guy she would pick. So, I teetered between being afraid of what is lurking in the dark versus what her decisions she would make with the two men in her life.

Finally we get Bek’s story and find out who she is going to choose! I feel as if I’ve been waiting for this book forever, and it definitely did NOT disappoint!

I have always loved Bek, Noelle’s best friend, since she was introduced in the first book in this series. She is just as crazy, wild, and fun as Noelle, but maybe not as risky with her life. In the last few books we’ve seen her dealing with dating Jason, and having Brody distancing himself and

There are some books and some authors you just know are gonna be awesome. Its the author who makes you have that faith to give you something mindblowing every single time.

Heading into Burning Bond, I feared the love triangle…I feared Noelle’s meddling and Bek’s reception to her best friend’s advice…I feared that Bek wasn’t going to live up to her other half, her partner-in-crime, her sister from another mister. But I can wholeheartedly say that I had NOTHING to worry about. I adored every aspect of Bek’s story, and when she finally does make her decision about which man to fully give her heart to, Emma Hart has made it abundantly clear as to who’s, besides ...more

Burning Bond was a great 5 star read.
What woman wouldn’t want two hot men fighting over them?

Bek is left in charge while Noelle is on vacation for two weeks. She has been seeing Jason however Brody doesn’t want to give up on her. She has known Brody for years, being the brother of her best friend. These two are definitely alpha males and know what they want, Bek.

The story takes a twist when Bek comes across a young woman that has been attacked in the

4.5 Stars!

This is the first book of this series that I have read. It was easy to read as a stand alone but fans of the series will enjoy it that much more. The suspense was well written and had me pulled in from the beginning.

The best part of the story is the familiarity between the characters. This is one big happy family, whether by blood or not. The humor, the inside digs, the brother/sister dynamics and of course Nonna. All of that made for a most enjoyable read. Bek has some tough choices

What a lovely, exciting, sweet fun book to read. I enjoyed every moment of it.

The dialogues are genuinely funny and witty, I love love love the quirkiness of the characters, none of them are perfect, but so so so darn lovable.

The heroine, Robekah, is absolutely adorable in a kick-ass way, I want to stalk her and asked her to be my friend..... She is sarcastic, strong, funny, stubborn and just so much fun to read the things she said.

I absolutely am in love with this series. There is no way around that. That being said, I was more than a little apprehensive about this book, because it doesn't follow the heroine we have all come to know and love, Noelle, but instead follows Bek, Noelle's best friend and co-worker. Truth be told there has been quite a lot of build up coming to this book, is Bek with Jason,

Well I never thought I would say this, but Emma Hart knows how to write a love triangle the correct way. I am not a fan of love triangles at all, but since I knew Emma wrote this book I knew I had to read it. And I am glad I did. This is exactly how love triangles should always be written.

The Holly Woods Files are a go to read when I'm feeling like something funny, sexy and with some mystery that has you on the edge of your seat.
Burning Bond is the story of Noelle's best friend and her struggle to choose which man is best (all the while keeping true to the Holly Wood Files formula)
Drake and Noelle are one of my favourite book couples. I love everything about them together (then you add the rest of the Bonds, EVEN Nonna, and its fun times all round!) So, yes I was excited for

I was scared that Bek wasn’t going to pick who I wanted her to be with. I was scared that because I am not a big fan of love triangles that I may lose some love for the characters involved.

This book was absolute gold! I'm always apprehensive when a series deviates from the main characters after so many books on them,
I'm not a fan of love triangles either, or even when the female is older than the guy (only by a few months here) but I love this series too much and I was so excited to read this book that I overlooked all that stuff. I'm not going to say a lot because there's a lot of chances for spoilers. But ever since there was hints of Bek's relationship problems in the previous

Perfect!

Ever since starting this series I was curious to see if we would have a spin off with Bek and here it is and it was just utterly perfect!

For those who hate love train goes just as me this isn't necessarily and love triangle since is obvious from the previous books already who Bek ends up.

Once and agin we have a GREAT MYSTERY/PUZZLE to solve. I must say this was one of those that kept me holding on my chair from nervousness.

Bek is just as fierce as Noelle, “I just shot a paper guy in the ***k,” I say loudly, turning my head back to face him. “Do you really wanna go there right now?” Brody has a way with words, “I’m a gentleman like that, hotstuff. If you’re gonna wake up with someone’s ***k poking at you, you should at least be aware of it before.” He grins."
