Review Blitz: Burning Bright (Going Down in Flames #5) by Chris Cannon #BurningBright #NetGalley

Burning Bright by Chris Cannon

Bryn is back for her senior year at the Institute for Excellence, also known as shape-shifting dragon school. She isn’t sure which is scarier, the life-force sucking dragons stalking campus or the fact that she’s officially betrothed to Jaxon, a guy who will never love her. Not that she could ever love him, either… That’s just ridiculous.

Senior year should be fun. Her parents are alive, she’s finally fitting in, and she’s learning how to be a Medic. But what’s with Jaxon giving her strange looks? He runs hot and cold, and he doesn’t even have the excuse of being a hybrid fire-and-ice-breathing dragon like her. One minute they’re having a great time and the next, she wants to blast a fireball at his head. The marriage contract of doom looms over them--unless this match not made in heaven kindles a flame…

Okay, I must ask - did you read the other books in this series? Going Down in Flames and the others all the way down to Fanning the Flames? Yes? Well, go ahead, you are right where you need to be. If you haven't read the other books - yup, exactly - go back and start at the beginning, it's definitely worth it!

You didn't really expect Bryn to lose her ability to find trouble wherever she goes, right? Admittedly, considering the events in the last book, Bryn and her friends -and also her non-friend who also happens to be her future husband- are having a bit of a hard time recovering despite the fact that on the whole things start to look up but a true chaos magnet like Bryn will always find trouble.
Jaxon who is still reeling from losing someone due to the events in the last book, can't decide whether he wants to play nice or not - though "nice" would be rather great considering all this marriage of doom thing looming over them, right?
When things get rough, again, they'll have to stick together in order to survive and with her grandmother in her corner and her friends at her side, Bryn may be able to make him see that she is very special, chaos magnet or not.

I must admit that I loved the story on the whole and I found myself chuckling and giggling but at the end, I felt as if some things were a bit rushed, especially when it came to their relationship. Sure, I get that Bryn is special and obviously it is easy for people to like her or fall in love with her but it felt as if a switch was turned and things fell into place. I read about their feelings but I couldn't feel them.
Apart from that, I really enjoyed the book and couldn't put it down!
