The one person who could help me break free.
My family sucked ass.
Except for my brother.
He was all I had these days, at least in terms of family.
In every other part of my life though, I was killing it.

He changed me.

Another amazing book in this series. I enjoyed Breaking Free. I have been following this series from the beginning, so I was excited to read this next book. This book is a stand-alone in a series, but can be read alone. This book is about Ryan, which if you read the other books, you have met him. I will say that you have hints to how his book will go if you read Holly’s book.
The plot of this book is interesting. I feel it is important to say that this is a M/M book. Just in case that is not something you enjoy. With that being said, I really enjoyed this book. Each character has their own demons they are facing. If I would have to pick a main theme, it would be that everyone has issues. How you face those issues is what makes you who you are.
I love Ryan. He has a lot of stuff going on in his life, but he still has a good heart. My heart really ached for him many times in this book. He is such a good person, but he had some tough things to deal with. Then there is Alex. I pretty much liked him from word go. He is such a strong character, even when he is facing troubles of his own. I loved how he was there for Ryan. Even when things weren’t great, he still did the right thing and helped someone in need.
The heat between these two is there. I liked watching these two go from just a hook-up and venture into a more permanent area. The scenes between these two was amazing. Their relationship, while rocky, also steamed up the pages at times. I really enjoyed that about this book.
The writing style of this book follows the rest of the books in the series. I liked the dual point of view. The pace of the book was steady. I liked that we got to see other minor characters from previous books. It also set up the next book nicely. I really enjoyed the tough situations and serious topics discusses.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. So far, I have been loving this series. I really enjoyed all the characters and drama involved. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. Zoe is such a big part of this series and I am waiting desperately for her to get her own book.
Writing Style: 5/5
I’m just me. A clumsy, introverted, bubble bath loving, chocoholic who would rather read a book than go shopping. And god forbid if you try and make me shoe shop!
I’m one of four kids to school teacher parents. A wife to a football obsessed husband. Mother to a fur-baby who isn’t aware of how big he is. Aunt to the most crazy/adorable little girls. And sister to two very determined sisters and one easy going brother.
I live in Canberra Australia and work too many hours a day at my day job.
I’m a book whore who can easily (and happily) read a book from start to finish in a day and when I do have spare time, you’ll find me in the writing cave.
