Book Review: Bound to Burn by Paul Dombrowiak


Bound to Burn by Paula Dombrowiak

A Sexy Age Gap Rockstar Romance

Blood and Bone Series, Book 4

September 22,2022


A sexy, age gap, rockstar romance with a bit of a slow burn, a strong sassy heroine, a grumpy alpha hero, low angst and a happily ever after.

Love has a way of blazing through you like poison, leaving you breathless but still wanting more.

On the way down it burns like whiskey, coats your throat like a love song, and enters your belly with the force of a hurricane.

I told myself never again.

I thought I had put those ghosts behind me, but some secrets don’t stay buried forever.

Fate has a way of forcing you to face them, and Sasha was the curveball I never saw coming.

I didn’t want to fall for her.

In fact, I was determined not to, but she danced her way into my heart with her pink glittered Converse, and the sweet taste of peppermint.

She’s way too young, and chasing something I can’t give her, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting her.

If I give into how I feel, will we last the summer, or are we bound to burn?


Bound To Burn is the 4th book in the Blood & Bone series but can be read as a standalone, although the books should be read in order, for the best reader experience.

Cash and Sasha’s story is perfect for readers who love a sexy, age gap, emotional, rock star romance, second chance, strong sassy heroine, a grumpy musician, a touch of humor, low angst and a whole lot of steam.

Content Warning: This book does have mention of drug use and overdose, so please take care while reading.




Cash feels like an old friend as we have gotten to know him a little with each book in the series. He has built a solid wall around his heart. Sasha is young but wise. I loved Jack’s part in the story as he added some comic relief while just being “Jack”. This is a sexy, steamy, age gap romance. I enjoyed this story. If you are a fan of rockstar romances, I encourage you to read this series!

Paula Dombrowiak grew up in Evanston, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, right on beautiful Lake Michigan. She used to think it was an ocean, because you can’t see the other side, until she got older and became aware of geography. The Chicago lakeshore is her favorite place in the whole world.

Paula moved to Arizona in 1997 because the Chicago winters wore her down and she needed a little sunshine in her life. She came to appreciate the diversity of Arizona, the desert, the mountains, and the lakes. Yes, there are lakes in Arizona and it even snows up in the high country.

Paula really is a music junkie to the core and loves discovering new bands, just as much as she loves writing. So why not combine the two? That was how Blood and Bone was born. Her favorite music is Classic Rock, Grunge, and Alternative. She also loves to read and mostly enjoys YA (all subgenres), Romance, and Non-Fiction.

Paula’s wardrobe really does consist of band T-shirts and leggings that are perpetually covered in pet hair. Animals are her homies and she don’t eat her homies.
