Synopsis

Mar-29DESTRUCTION. BETRAYAL. RUINATION. TRUE LOVE.

SCARLETT
He had done it again. Ravaged me. Burned me. Broken me.
Given me air, only to leave me gasping, writhing.
But then something changed. Something that terrified and excited me both.
Something that utterly destroyed me.
Something that made me whole again.

DANTE
Our love was cursed from the start. She didn’t know it, but I did.
All she knew was that I’d lied to her, betrayed her. Done unforgivable things. Unavoidable things. Yes, I had broken promises as surely as I had broken her heart. But, just as every war has casualties, and every lie has consequences–every bastard has his reasons.

My Review

He’s the best I ever had. And the worst thing that ever happened to me. True love is a bitch.

R.K. Lilley reveals shocking answers to the questions and insecurities that plagued the explosive relationship between Dante and Scarlett. Theirs was a relationship first rooted in safety and protection, physical and emotional connection, but then one that ran wild with pang of desperation and betrayal. They needed each other, hated and loved each other—fiercely.

Yes, I do love you as much as I hate you.

Breaking Her unravels their twisted story in alternating Scarlett/Dante perspectives as well as past and present tenses. Secrets hid in their history, truths that pushed them together and pulled them apart.

We begin in an all-too-familiar way—Scarlet devastated after yet another surge of hope, another round of heartbreak thanks to Dante. Yet every time she’s determined to leave Dante in her past, he comes barreling back into her life.

What Dante had done, how he’d messed with my head, yet again… I won’t say it hurt more than the first time, or even that it was more shocking. Once you’ve been broken, every break after, even when they hurt like hell, can never outdo the profound damage of the first time.

Every conversation, every fight, even their lovemaking, is charged, wild, frenzied, out of control. But this time, when the truth begins to filter out, the bottom falls from under Scarlett.

What he had to tell me didn’t just sober me up. It changed everything.

The lies, the truths, are all hard to swallow, and Scarlett must make choices that will either sever everything they’ve had or finally bring them together.

Was there some chance that I could turn my bitter memories sweet again?

If you loved Breaking Him, you’ll be fully hooked on how the puzzle pieces to their story finally come together. Heartbreak and love, sadness and hope, betrayals and long-awaited truths—this highly anticipated sequel has got everything you’ve been anxiously waiting for!

You never get to stop loving me.
