Boy was I wrong.
This is my first time that I feel compelled to write a review because Break Me Slowly is that good.
I love Adam & Katelyn, it is so easy to fall in love & relate to these characters in spite of their pasts and Adam's domineering character.
This story is powerful and impactful. Don't let its 165 pages lead you to believe that this is a light fluffy read.And it's even better knowing that the story will have its happy ending instead of me having to wait another 3-4 months for a sequel. No offense to others but I prefer to read a romance in one book/setting than having it split into in a sequel or a trilogy & dragging out the pain & the angst.
5 stars! I will definitely look out for books by Ms Joya Ryan!
We were two broken people who couldn't communicate about the darkness that was swallowing us whole.
Remember when you were coming down from reading the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy and the Crossfire Trilogy and you are left in that cloud of nothing will ever compare to these, what am I going to read, the book hangover that doesn't seem to go away. Well, I give you your Tylenol, Break me Slowly.
I enjoyed this book more then I thought I was going too especially after I read some of the reviews. I probably shouldn't have liked it as much as I did but this book is exactly what you need to cure a bad book hangover. It's quick and its HOT!! The Characters' pasts are very similiar to what I am use to, they both come from abusive backgrounds. Where we get to really know Katelyn's, Adam keeps his guarded.
"You belong to me, Katelyn. Your body, your mind, your soul. I won't stop until I have it all."
I liked Katelyn she was different but the same as the other Heroine we read about in these books (Yes, that means she is a virgin). She has a terrible past but she is still open, loving and warm. Katelyn doesn't like to be touched but that all changes the moment she locks eyes with Adam. Their love is intense, out of control and emotional. Their love has that similiar Gideon and Eve feel but it also has their own twist on it which makes you fall for them.
"What's your name?" "Adam Kinkade" Damn. Even his name sounded sexy
Oh how I love a good Alpha, Own your soul man and Adam took that and ran with it. Adam has secrets, he is a multi millionaire and he is beautiful! He is charming, he is controlling and the instant he sees Katelyn he has found what completes him.
He had shattered me. Any plan or idea I had about controlling myself, or my emotions, was gone. I could only hope that he's catch all the pieces he'd broken and put me back together.
"With every breath my body grew weaker. Adam was my drug, and though he stood right in front of me, I knew I should run away or suffer the withdrawl. And it would be painful.
"You own my soul, Adam."
This book has flaws and it does have that "Trying to be Fifty and Gideon" thing going for it! There is also that I am a virgin and your a mega millionaire so of course we are in love and let's ride off into the sunset and live Happily Ever After. But isn't that why we read, isn't that what we want when reading that unrealistic blinding love that takes our breath away and leaves you saying "I want that pretty women love" the love you know only exist in books. The love that makes you roll over and kiss your significant other.
"Hey, Wait! Did you just do some kind of Jedi mind trick on me to get me to invite you in?"
"The Force is strong in me." He smiled
"I think I'm falling in hate with you."
Go ahead you know you want to meet him....
Due to a childhood of abuse from her mother, Katelyn has never had a romantic relationship, and even her best friend is not allowed to touch her. But the attraction between her and Adam Kinkade is powerful, and compels her, for the first time, to allow someone to get close to her physically and emotionally. But Adam has his own issues, also from an abusive childhood.
I was surprised at just how good this book was. It dealt with the issue of how childhood abuse affects adult life in a compelling, believable way. Of course, the idea of the ordinary girl meeting and eventually marrying a billionaire is an overdone theme in current romance novels, but this one is written very well and is believable. One can't help but believe that these two wounded souls were destined to meet Only their mutual understanding allows each to help the other find healing for their bruised hearts.
There were a few grammatical errors that slipped through, but the writing style was great. I enjoyed this book very much and would recommend it. It is an extraordinarily sweet love story.
Although...that sex scene in the club was...hmmm...interesting.
The insta-lust and angsty romance was alright but revelations regarding their relationship turned out to be too unrealistic for me in the end. Attraction at first sight? Believable. Lust at first sight? Sure, that's possible. But Love at first sight?
SPOILER: It just seem like an excuse to win back the heroine in a jiffy and to make the readers think that since he was in love with her from the very beginning, we can just overlook his past douchey behavior. END OF SPOILER.
It's just not realistic.
I'm still thinking if I should read the next book in the series though so that's something I guess. I think it's mostly because of the imaginative sex scenes, really.
