RELEASE DAY – Breaking Clear by MJ Summers

HIP HIP HOORAY!!! It’s release day for one of my favorites – MJ Summers! MJ enthralled me with the first book in this series – Break In Two, after which I also fell in love with Breaking Love.  Now, we meet into two other lovely characters in Breaking Clear…

Breaking Clear coverClever. Steamy. Inspiring.

You fell in love with Harper Young as Megan Sullivan’s fiercely loyal, feisty best-friend in Breaking Love. As a talented art director at Style Magazine in Manhattan, she lives a life of glamour, managing to put a safe distance between herself and her painful past. One spring day, she answers a call that will change everything. Her father has had an accident and needs Harper to go home to Boulder, Colorado to care for him. Given an ultimatum by her boss, she chooses family, leaving her career behind. She drives across the country to find that the only man to make her heart ache with desire will be her new neighbour. Now, living in a city with a past that haunts her, she finds herself falling for Evan Donovan, a hot-as-hell contractor and her big brother’s best friend.

When Evan Donovan isn’t on a construction site, he is usually hanging from a cliff somewhere. He’s been dealt a rough hand when it comes to love and now believes in keeping things simple. His wife left him just as the recession forced him to shut down his home building company. Now after three years of strict perseverance, he is finally back on top again and he intends to stay there. But when Harper Young drops into his life, things are going to suddenly get complicated. He finds himself wondering why he never noticed her when they were teenagers. He resolves to stay away from his best friend’s little sister but the pull he feels to her is just too strong. Harper and Evan quickly find themselves in each other’s arms, trying to fool themselves into believing that they won’t fall in love.

Will Harper’s glamorous life come calling before she can overcome the humiliation of being in a town where everyone knows about her past? Will Evan overcome his inability to trust? The clock is ticking as these two perfect-for-each other people decide if they can make that final leap.

Lose yourself in Harper and Evan’s romantic journey as they fight for their forever.

Break In Two ~ a review

Break In TwoHang on tight readers, this book will take you through every emotion you’ve got at your disposal. 

We first meet Claire as she is packing her things to run far, far away from her cheating realtor boyfriend.  *Anger!*

She’s packed up her car and has decided to leave rainy Seattle to take a job as a Chef at a ranch in Colorado.  Yes, a ranch with cowboys.  YeeHaw! *Excitement!*

Summers does a great job of keeping the reader engaged at the beginning of this book while utilizing minimal dialog.  We learn about Claire – “She went from crying to being terrified to feeling excited at least twice an hour”, her cheating ex, Antonio, and her lovely London living sister.  Eventually, Claire arrives in Colorado taking in the beauty of the scenery as well as her beautiful boss, Cole.  *Intrigue!*

Much to my delight, Cole is one of the good guys.  He and Claire instantly have a sweet connection and we fortunate enough to get to hear about it from both their perspectives.  Soon enough (much to my delight once again) that sweet connection gains quite a bit of heat.  We see Cole and Claire’s relationship progress at a fast clip, and I think you’ll find yourself falling right along with the characters.  *Love!*

Just when I started to think “Well, this has been a great love story!  Simple, sweet, and tied up with a pretty bow” Summers takes that perfect love story and breaks it right in two. *Sadness!*

Honest to goodness, I was on the verge of the ugly cry as I moved through the second part of this book.  She tells the story with such real emotion that each event feels like it’s actually happening to you. *Despair!*

As much as I’d like to give you insight into the second part of the book – I don’t want to spoil or ruin it for you.  Just know this – never in my life have I felt such a connection to a character as I did with Claire.  Not only do we get to see her grow emotionally through the story, we get to see her battle back from the depths of sorrow and grief.  Also of note – one of the characters we meet in the second half will have their own book soon!!! *Anticipation!*

If you loved the sweet heat of Katy Regnery’s Playing For Love at Deep Haven, you’ll love this book too.  The sex scenes are spicy and sensual, the characters become a part of you and the language is right up my alley with lots of swearing.
