Break Me is a romance that leaves you feeling breathless as a heroine overcomes the loss of her Dom. Her life of black, grey and white is all she lives for, but now two years later, cracks are forming in her shell. All because of one man who sees deep inside her and wants what she gave to another man. He wants the deep connection that a Dom and his submissive have together.
Jared has settled down in a new town with a new job and a new club. He sees a picture on the wall of a woman and asks about her. Drawn in he finds out her Dom is gone and now he wants to connect with a woman who is beautiful in her submission. When he finally finds her in a cafe, he comes regularly and sits patiently and quietly waiting for her to give her name to him. Knowing she is broken, he is patient enough to wait, knowing it will all be worth it in the end.
Claire is only existing. She owns a cafe and now the bookstore her Dom was connecting to her cafe. It is all they wanted, but now she doesn’t have him to share it. Now a man sits in her cafe patiently waiting. She knows what he wants and it awakens the dead part of her heart with just a crack. But that is all that is needed for her to start the road back to the living.
Claire breaks hard in this emotionally charged short story. The circumstances of her Dom’s death has left her even more broken. This one man sitting in her cafe is patient and irritating. Giving him what he wants isn’t on her agenda, but then again what she needs is this one man who can hold her together as she finally breaks down and is reborn.
This is a short story and it moves quickly from the beginning to a happy for now ending. Emotionally draining as you wonder how you would react to the one person you adore more than life leaving you. How would you pick up the pieces? Throw in the deeply emotionally charged BDSM elements that draw you even closer. The trust that feels like it was broken. I loved Claire and just how dedicated she was to her man, but I also wanted to see her break from her mourning and find a new love, a new life. Jared was wonderful. Patient but dominant. He knew when to allow Claire to grieve and when to push her harder. He wasn’t going anywhere and that felt right.
Not a fiery fall into bed and spank the hell out of your ass book. This one makes you feel and think. A great story!
