Bridges Burned (Mission Mercenaries Book 3) by Marie James ~ Book Review #newbookalert #bookcommunity #reading #bookish #romancenovels #booknerds #bookishlove #mustread #ebooks #darkromance #missionmercenaries


 Release Date: February 2

I didn’t swear vengeance on the Severino Family after Ellie’s death. I was only a child after all.


I didn’t swear vengeance when my father, a coward who wasn’t man enough to seek justice for her, drank himself into a divorce.


Going after them would be a death sentence.


I chose to live my life in the shadows, seeking revenge for others.


That was until I ran into the very man that took Ellie’s life.


I can still smell the smoke clinging to my skin from all the bridges I burned because of that man.


Walking away was no longer an option.


Killing him would be easy, but taking the woman that was promised to him seemed like a better wager.


Exacting retribution through her was the gamble I made.


Surviving her now seems impossible.

WOW! This series is one that will have totally enthralled.

 BRIDGES BURNED is Hollis Ford's story and we find out a lot about his past and what drives him to work for Mission Mercenaries. In this story he is given a job that almost guarantees his demise but he doesn't even blink an eye at that fact and I have to say it totally boggled my mind on why that was until we learn about his childhood.

 Madelene Lombardi is betrothed to Alessio Severino as payment for her fathers misdeeds, under Alessio's hand as well as his brothers Madelene is abused (physically, mentally, and sexually). As any abused person knows she must stand tall by her man and never let on what is happening behind closed doors otherwise it will be worse so when Hollis sees Madelene for the first time he thinks she's as bad as they are...but looks as we all know can be deceiving.

Hollis and Madelene have a fascinating chemistry, I for one loved the push and pull of it. 

This story isn't for the faint of heart, this story covers some tough topics but the hardest are ones that take place off page and are the catalyst for the vengeance Hollis and another seeks when it comes to the Severino Family. We do witness some of the abuse that takes place with Madelene so be mindful of that going in.

I would recommend this story to those that enjoy STEAMY Dark Romances, Forced Proximity Romances, or Stockholm Syndrome Romances.

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.
