Controlled Burn (Blackbridge Security #8) by Marie James ~ Book Review


 Release Date: February 3

As the mechanic for Blackbridge Security, when I make a mistake things don’t work properly.

Correcting that mistake is the only way to get things operational.

I meet issues in my personal life with the same mindset.

How was I to know the woman I’ve been flirting with at the gym is the same woman I called a noise complaint on?

I got her kicked out of her condo.

My first response: Move in with me.

When she confessed to having three kids, it was too late to back down.

I thought keeping my hands off of her was going to be a problem, but the tiny terrors she brought along with her are extremely effective at solving that problem for me.

I have to start out by saying that I have enjoyed each and every book in this series to date and the one that steals each and every scene they are in is Puff Daddy, an African Grey Parrot that has the filthiest mouth ever, so when we are introduced to Evie, Kendall's Parrot, I couldn't be happier. Evie is so prim and proper the total opposite of Puff Daddy and they both had me in laughing like a loon.

Okay, now onto the good stuff....Hottie Finnegan Jenkins, with his Irish Brogue and flaming red hair really knows how to light a fire when it comes to Kendall Stewart. 

Kendall is currently down on her luck, she is a single mom of three living with her brother after loosing her house, but she has a plan she's saving to purchase a new house for her and her children she just needs a little more time. 

Finn works for Blackbridge Security and loves his job but what he's been loving even more these days is the time he gets to spend with his new neighbor in the building, Kendall, in the buildings gym...who says workouts can't be fun! But his evenings have gone from peaceful to anything but, he's convinced the guy across the hall from him has a bunch of animals living with him, so of course he calls and complains about it. OH LET THE FUN BEGIN!!!

I loved the chemistry between Finn and Kendall, I also loved the way the kids were with Finn each of them had their own brand of sass or snark and it was perfect. There of course is some other bad things happening in Kendall's life but with Finn at her side you know she's going to get her HEA.

If you enjoy Romantic Suspense, Close Proximity Romances, or Single Mom Romances I would recommend this book to you.

Happy Reading!!!

**I have voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book for my Blog, Nadine's Obsessed with Books**

Meet Marie James

Let's see...where to begin...

I'm inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we're doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master's degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there's usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I'm not writing; I'm reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I'm reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it's gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.
