Bridges Burned Book #Review

Synopsis:
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.

My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Bridges Burned is book two of the Going Down In Flames series.  In book two we see Bryn learning about who she is and finally being recognized by her grandparents.  As Zavien continually insists that he and Nola are only friends even though they are contracted for marriage, Bryn begins to question whether or not what he says is true, her relationship with Valmont, her knight, grows.  As she strives for acceptance from her grandparents and Valmont's family, she becomes exceedingly aware of how different she is.  Will the Blue Clan accept her as their own? Will she and Jaxon be anything more than "frenemies"?  Will she ever be able to consider Dragon's Bluff her home?

This was a great novel about acceptance.  Although this was a fantasy novel, you could easily relate with Bryn and all of the things that she had to overcome.  I also enjoyed the description of the area, I could actually imagine there really being a place like Dragon's Bluff.  The story was fast paced and the excitement was never-ending.  I can't wait to read the next book to find out who the mastermind is behind all of the attacks.
