Blog Review: Why did I not read this book sooner? I mean wow this book was not what I expected. I loved it and a new fan of Gemma James!

Crystal’s Book World Review: 

4 Stars: 

I was very unsure to start reading this book. But I have heard nothing but praises for Gemma James and her writing that I thought I could give this book a chance. I am thankful for the author’s note because it helped me prepare my mind frame. I really didn’t need to at the end. There are very different circumstances when it came to this book. Does it make it right, no. But I can see where Gemma was going with her story and characters.

Jules heart is broken from the get go. The twist….she broke her own heart and decides that she needs a new start in a different town. She moves and on her way there, she meets our very sexy and compassionate Cash Montgomery. The attraction blew me away. The flirting was cute and gave me butterflies. And then a bomb is dropped days later after these two meet.

The whole power of meeting your soulmate at the wrong time in life is unnerving. This makes you understand that you should not live life to just content. You need to take chances and step into the unknown. The ending killed me! I need to know what happens next. I can not wait to read the next book!

“Angsty, sexy, and intense, Trashy Foreplay is everything a contemporary romance should be! I couldn’t put it down.” ~ Anna Zaires, New York Times Bestselling Author

 

 

Never flirt with temptation.
Never lust after what I can’t have.
And never, under any circumstances, screw a married man again.

By the time this story is told, I’ll have failed at all three…

With my heart and reputation in ruins, I can’t afford to make another mistake. Boarding a flight to Seattle is supposed to give me a clean slate, but from the moment Cash Montgomery slides into the seat next to mine, I’m captivated by his steel eyes that see too much. I ache for this stranger in a way I’ve never ached for anyone.

But I didn’t know he was married, and I sure as hell didn’t see the curveball fate had in store. My clean slate in Seattle isn’t so clean after all because my new boss is the man forbidden to me.

And the only man I want.

The only man I’ll do anything for, even if it means breaking the promise I made to myself when I fled my old life in shame.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for a married man, but I did.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Though the subject matter deals with cheating, there are no innocent parties here. Book 1 in the Trashy Affair series.

About the Author:

Breakwater Lane by Stephanie Payne Hurt is available now!!!! I finished this book and loved this small town romance! Check out the book details and my review below~~Happy Reading XoXo

Crystal’s Book World Review:

3.5 Stars!!

Breakwater Lane is a great book to dive into and unlock a few mysteries along the way. This is my first book I have read by Stephanie Payne Hurt and it was different from what I have read before. I am always interested to see how authors can bring us readers a twist or two when it comes with the Romance genre. Breakwater Lane definitely has the romance with a dash of drama. What really captured me was the suspense of the book.

The main characters Jordan and Skylar were a great pair. You get the sarcasm, sassiness, and the playful side of the characters. The mutual chemistry is amazing. These two click. Their history almost blocked their future. The small town that Jordan goes back to is tight knit, but you will find some stragglers that are consumed with greed and envy.

The story line was good, there was a couple of times that I would get a little lost in the dialogue and not sure if it was written in first person or third person. This did not effect the actual story, just my brain would get stuck a time or two. All in all, I enjoyed the read and rated this book a 3.5.

Synopsis

My name is Ellie Winters, and I’m one of those unfortunate women you hear about on the news—but you never think my fate will ever happen to you. Not that I blame you for believing that. Honestly, I thought the same thing, until I became a statistic, a missing person who was assumed dead. Wrong place, wrong time.

Except…I’m not dead. Not yet. I was kidnapped, shackled, beaten, and deprived of the basic necessities, and pretty much left to find a slow, painful demise. I’m hanging on, but just barely. I’m not even sure what I’m waiting for since there’s no hope for me, nobody waiting for me. I had finally given up, resigned myself to my inevitable death…when the one man who could make me want to live again finds me more dead than alive. After so many months in captivity, I’m lost, hopelessly damaged. Is it even possible for me to come out of the darkness and into the light again?

Zane Colter challenges me to live again, laugh again, live my life again. But I’m not sure if I’ll ever be the same woman I was before I was held captive by a madman. Yet, he doesn’t give up, and I couldn’t ignore the white-hot passion that sizzled between the two of us.

He’s everything I’ve ever wanted, everything I’ve always needed.

Tender–but stubborn.

Logical–but understanding.

Sweet–but hot, demanding and possessive.

As we fall into each other, both hungry for a passion we’ve never known, I wonder if I can be what Zane needs when I’m struggling to find myself again.

And when I’m finally healed, I’ll have a choice to make: Do I try to hang onto him forever, or will letting go be my only option?…

I was sixteen when he came to our house. Landon Jones, a boy with nothing, from nowhere. He had cinnamon hair and blue eyes—light blue, just like mine. When we went out as a family with my foster brother, people asked if Landon was my twin. He wasn’t. That year, we found out how much he wasn’t. When my parents caught us, they threw Landon out like trash.

Now I’m twenty-nine, a soon-to-be surgeon, like my mom and dad. I know residency is going to kick my ass, but I had no idea that it would rip my heart out, too. Not until I see him—Dr. Jones.
