Their passion isn’t the only thing creating flames.

Mari Gale’s life has been a whirlwind since meeting Jake Chivis. A new job prospect and his mother’s health preoccupy him, so when Jake invites him on a date he’s ready to cut loose. Their night out turns into a nightmare when a fire breaks out in the basement of the bar and they barely escape.

Soon Jake learns that the horrific accident is being investigated as a possible homicide, and it’s not the only case. Detective Inspector Cordiline of the London Met hints at spontaneous human combustion, but as far as Jake knows, SHC doesn’t exist.

When Mari looks into a group called Birthright, he finds a connection to the victims of the fires and Jake risks himself to go undercover at the shadowy organization. The race is on to determine the truth before Jake becomes the next target.

4 out of 5 (very good)

Burning Boundaries is the second book in the Elemental Evidence series, and we rejoin Jake and Mari as they try to continue their complicated relationship and lives. On top of that, they are also dragged into a situation where someone has spontaneously combusted, which Jake disputes even exists. It does, if you're a Fire Elemental and things have gone screwy. So, with one thing after another, Jake goes undercover whilst Mari does his best not to fret.

I was a bit taken aback by Mari and Jake's relationship at the start of this book, and didn't like Mari much - much to my surprise. Maybe it's because there was a gap between reading books one and two, although that has never been an issue before. I didn't like how he kept Jake on tenterhooks, and played him when Colm and Don where there. Don I liked, Colm I would have happily punched! So yeah, that bit for me? Not so good. The rest of it though, I thoroughly enjoyed. I liked the mystery aspect of it, the mole, the betrayal, the uncertainty. And poor Jake... that's all I'm saying!

Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, I would recommend this to anyone who has read book one, as you will need to read that to understand the world and backgrounds to receive the full enjoyment of the story (imo).
