Break in Two, Full hearts book 1, MJ Summers

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre: Romance, Erotica

I really liked the sound of this but somehow it failed to engage me.  I just couldn’t really get along with either Cole or Claire – they acted like a couple of teenagers with their petty dramas. Its a shame because it started so well.

The story itself was promising, and the ranch idea good but for a fledgling business they seemed to have a lot of free time….to indulge in what seems like constant sex, but rather than being in the erotica and varied/interesting type I expected it was a bit repetitive and almost banal 😦 I enjoy a good spicy read but that doesn’t mean page after page after page of sex, but scenes that are sensual and seductive. Sex that’s interesting and different, not just run of the mill, to the point where I was getting switched off not turned on.  I  was waiting for something other than yet another sexual encounter or stupid bit of jealousy by Claire, or jerk reaction from Cole. The most interesting character was Gabriella, followed by Luc ( who Claire meets on the plane back to London – he’s in book two so I’m hoping that’s better than this for me). she was a fabulous, manipulative character, and they really add to the drama so I enjoyed her part. the story from her though was kind of easy to guess, so that didn’t come as a surprise. Altogether though I love longer reads this one just dragged, and I found myself skimming lots of it to find out if the story was actually going to move on, and what would happen other than semi constant sex.

Its got lots of lovers ( of the book, not in the book!!) so clearly its perfect for many readers, but sadly its a fail for me.

NB: I criticised a recent novel for lack of condom use, here Claire and Cole don’t either but the author makes a point in her intro to say this is fiction, and in reality one should always be safe. I can go along with that – so long as safety is mentioned one way or another I’m happy. Its too important to leave out.

Stars: Two and a half, there were a few things I enjoyed – Gabriella for one! But overall it was too predictable and repetitive for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
