Spotlight & Review: "When I Break" by Kendall Ryan

Hello guys. Our little self-imposed break while we vacationed and moved to a new city is over and we have lots of exciting and new things coming on the blog. Here is a little flash back review of "When I Break" by Kendall Ryan. We just found this series and so far we are in love. Check out all the book/author info, links and our review below...

Title: When I Break (When I Break, Book 1)
Author: Kendall Ryan
Release: February 24, 2014


What happens when a sex addict falls for a virgin? 

This book is intended for a mature reading audience and contains adult language and themes. Contains a stubborn alpha male with addiction issues and loads of sexual tension between two damaged characters. Read at your own risk.

Knox Bauer's life has unraveled to the point of no return. Fighting to fill the emptiness inside himself, he seeks solace in unfamiliar beds with unfamiliar women. As guardian to his three younger brothers, he can't seem to do a thing right. But this can't go on...they look up to him in every way and all he’s done lately is prove how messed up he really is. Needing a change, he attends a local Sex Addicts Anonymous meeting, where he finds himself tempted by the alluring instructor, McKenna.

Twenty-one year old McKenna is trying to make amends. After losing her parents in a horrific accident, she knows if she can just be good enough, maybe she can forgive herself for what happened. With her newly acquired degree in counseling, she begins leading a sex addicts group where she meets the troubled Knox and her life takes on complications she never bargained for. She doesn't have time for a bad boy who only wants to take her to bed, even if her body disagrees. The fixer in her wants to help, but trusting Knox's true motivations might take more courage than she has.

When I Break is book 1 in a new series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Kendall Ryan. When I Surrender, book 2, will be available April 7, 2014. Please note this is not a standalone, as the story continues in book 2.

4 Stars ****

I am 100% absorbed in Knox and McKenna's story. 

This book reads like a serial. It's a short, hot read. Knox is a troubled man. Burdened with the responsiblity of caring for his three younger brothers and dealing with the abandonment of their father after losing their mother, he turns to booze & sex as a way of escape. After a DUI arrest, he is ordered into counseling for his addictions.

McKenna is a beautiful, sweet young woman who copes with her guilt over her parent's death by trying to save the world. She spends most of her free time volunteering at soup kitchens and teen shelters and ventured into a career in counseling. Being the only child of parents with no other living relatives, she has only her best friend from childhood to lean on. Brian has been wonderful but he is envading more of her life than she wants. Hers is a lonely and dull existence until she takes on the task of heading a Sex Addicts Annoymous group and Knox and his boys come barreling into her life. Pushing the boundries of counselor, friend or more... McKenna can't help but be drawn in. 

Wow the pull between these two is strong from the start. They are two broken souls needing someone to care. Someone to connect to. It's not easy for either of them to let anyone close to their mangled hearts and it's heart wrenching seeing them try and fail over and over. Their chemistry is off the charts and I am really rooting for them 100%.

Can they help heal each other or will they forever be haunted by the ghosts of their pasts???

On to the next to find out!
