That’s What He Said Thursday – Pierce Reynolds – “Burned” by A.K. Evans

That’s What He Said is a weekly meme hosted by @Chapter Break. Here’s the deal: every Thursday, post a line from your book boyfriend to his heroine. Keep in mind, these are direct quotes from dialog in the books. The quote doesn’t have to be romantic – it can be anything spoken by a book boyfriend. Be sure to link up over at Chapter Break as well!

Zara Brooks has been burned too many times. First by her family and then by a cheating boyfriend, she’s ready for a fresh start in a new town.

Pierce Reynolds is immediately attracted to Zara.  However, she isn’t ready to give him her heart . . .but just maybe she can give him her friendship.

As Pierce and Zara become closer, he wants more, but Zara just isn’t ready. When tragedy strikes, however, Pierce refuses to let Zara face it alone . . . proving to her he’s in it for the long haul. All he needs is for Zara to be willing to take a chance and believe that he’ll never let her get burned again.


I adored Pierce. He’s gorgeous, patient, protective, romantic and gives Zara the time and space she needs to process. He is amazing at helping to rebuild her shattered self-esteem and truly loves her for who she is.

Read Pierce and Zara’s Story!


Burned by A.K. Evans



Zara Brooks needs a fresh start.

Consumed with insecurity and damaged by betrayal, Zara leaves her old life and all the heartache it holds behind her.

Or so she thinks…

Zara is deeply wounded and every choice she makes in her new hometown is evidence of that pain.

Pierce Reynolds has lived in Windsor all his life and loves the community. When multiple businesses in town are set ablaze faster than the police department can investigate, Pierce volunteers to be the lead investigator on the case.

Pierce’s investigation lands him at Zara’s front door and he’s immediately taken with her. While Zara can’t deny that he’s an attractive and well-respected man, she refuses to get involved.

Once tragedy strikes, leaving Zara vulnerable, Pierce learns there’s a lot of hurt hiding beneath her tough exterior and handles her with care. Shocked by the depth of Pierce’s kindness, Zara finds her heart yearns for more.

But Zara treads cautiously.

Because she knows how easy it is to get burned.
