this book was filled was so much anger, spite and angst by Scarlett. I was exhausted reading about her bitterness. also, not a fan of past/ present books - the going back in time chapters were just something I skimmed. I was really looking forward to reading it because of all the rave reviews but sadly not the book for me.
Breaking Him was a drug that had me after one hit, and I am fiending for more! Dante and Scarlett’s love story was a tumultuous one – to say the least! – and the reverberations I felt from being tossed around on this ride was the best kind of chaos.
Breaking Him was a romance to an extent. Really, it was a battle. This was a love story, yes, but it was a love story about two people who were absolutely raw, their nerves exposed and vulnerable after losing the one person they belonged to.
“It was a sad, tragic fact that I’d take three times my share of the damage just to give him his third of it.”
Dante and Scarlett pulsated with pain, but they still clawed and punched at each other, inflicting devastating blow after devastating blow, but unable to walk away no matter how debilitating each counter move. This novel was set up like a second-chance romance, but I wouldn’t call it that. The level of animosity that I felt between the two made it seem like a last-chance romance.
“Breaking him until he was as broken as me was the only thing that would ever be enough.”
Breaking Him was told from Scarlett’s point of view with an alternating timeline. When Dante and Scarlett were introduced, their romance had already blown up and throughout the novel the narrative flips from the present to the past. All at once, I got to see a younger and totally adorable (and equally crazy) D&S who were inseparable, which contrasted perfectly with the D&S of the present who hated each other. My emotions were constantly spinning from sweet to sour, calm to chaos, from my heart melting to it burning with anxiety. But throughout it all there was the passion I felt because these two had such amazing chemistry, and their interplay was like watching the best kind of opponents go toe-to-toe with each other.
“A wise person once said that in a relationship you should keep the fights clean and the sex dirty.
I don’t do that. Neither does Dante. We never have.
We do everything dirty.”
Intermixed within the emotion and all that hot intensity was a mystery because the plot didn’t reveal right away what happened between Dante and Scarlett. They were brought together by circumstances after avoiding each other for years, and it didn’t take long for old hurts to start causing bruises nor did it take long for their attraction to consume them.
“It was the sweetest torture, the most delightful torment, to let the man that had ruined me for joy bring it back into my body for one brief instant.”
This book consumed me. It was the right level of drama to capture me, anguish to pull me apart, and emotion to keep me turning the pages. I read this in two sittings; stayed up late to get as much reading in before I was forced to sleep for work (stupid work). Then when I had the chance to finish it, I tried to slow down, but that was impossible since, by the end of this book, I was pretty much seizing from the rapid rate my eyes were moving as I tried to read each word faster and faster. It was fantastic.
Breaking Him is that kind of romance that I read and I think, “F*** these two are destructive. That’s not healthy. They need to grow the hell up. Can’t they see what they’re doing to each other? To themselves?” And I soak it all up through my Kindle, but I also envy it, and dream and wonder what it would be like to feel a love that all-encompassing, so magnetic that no matter what, you can feel the pull of that other person. Dante and Scarlett felt that pull towards each other and I felt that pull towards this book and I f***ing loved it.
“’Neither of us have a choice in this. You and I being together is not a question, Scarlett, it’s a fact of life.’
And he kissed me. And kissed me.”
I'm usually not a fan of books that go back and forth from present to past, but my goodness I loved this book. So much. I love Dante. I love Scarlett. I feel like I should hate Dante though. Especially after that happened. But I need more sooooooooon.
I knew going in that Breaking Him would wreck my emotions and destroy my fragile romantic heart in a way I never want to be healed from. RK Lilley is good at that. Her prose is not only on point, but potent in her talent to pierce your heart and soul, so that a mark is left that she gets to keep. She did it to me with the Up in the Air Series with the volatile relationship of Bianca and James and has yet done it again with Scarlett and Dante. I find myself hating them, loving them, and wanting nothing more than them to stop. Just stop. Find a way to let go, or find a way to forgive. Be each other's forever. I want that, but yet, by the end of book 1, I still don't know what's going to happen for these two.
The story is woven so well that I, for the life of me cannot figure out what's on the horizon. Not even close. I keep guessing and hoping I'm not right and then another facet is revealed and it's back to scare one with my guessing. All I know is that I'm 100% in for this ride of my life until the bitter and mostly likely stunning end.
I DARE you to read it. See if you can survive. I have, and I'm better for it.
Scarlett, she is so incredible. Such a strong, beautiful soul.
"I had been shaped by petty meanness in a world that had tried from the start to throw me away, and where being hard was the only was to survive."
She's not your typical heroine, she is capable of fending for herself and just being a total badass.
"I have tormented some sweet men. Broken hearts and shattered dreams. Men are punching bags, and I have a hell of a right hook."
And what she wants is to break Dante. "Breaking him until he was as broken as me was the only thing that would ever be enough."
I could not put this book down. I can NOT wait for Breaking Her! I NEED to know what the hell happened. Ahhhhh, seriously LOVED this story. I see a reread in my near future! It's THAT good!!!
