I feel like I'm the odd one out seeing all the glorious reviews for the book on Goodreads, but I never found the book any good. I wasn't that fond of either the characters or the story and there seem to be a trend by the all the romance books I have read lately to include lots of graphic sex scenes. Well, it is a smart way to sell books, there are probably many people that enjoy reading about sex in books, I just get bored lol, I just wished that the story in the book would have been better. But it's like watching an action movie where 90% of the budget went to special effects and 10% to the script. You get a lot of explosions but not a good story. This book felt like that. It was very predictable. I will not go into details since I don't want to give away the plot. But I like books that surprise me, Breaking Love never surprised me, and I was often forcing myself to get through it.
Last I will leave you all with a quote that really made me dislike Luc: “This is confusing. You're obviously attracted to me - Which is, of course, how it should be - but you don't want to be with me? How is that possible?" he asked with a teasing grin.” Yeah, Luc, she is a woman she must be attracted to you, you big stud muffin! (of course she is but she is written to fancy him, but if a man said anything like that to me, that I must be attracted to him, I would have been pissed off' by his ego!)
We are introduced to Luc Chevalier, a rich business man, and Megan, who owns her own photography business. Megan has been invited to visit her friend, Harper, who lives in Paris. Megan is reluctant in leaving her son, Elliott, with her mom for a vacation. Her mom, Helen, says she should take the opportunity and go have fun since she is constantly taking care of her son and not enjoying life. Her ex-husband, Ian, who became involved with drugs after an injury made her re-evaluate their marriage, leaving her no choice but to leave him
Harper takes Megan out for a night of fun to a club Luc Chevalier owns. The chemistry between Megan and Luc is undeniable, but neither want any type of relationship. Luc is a love 'em and leave 'em kind of guy, and Megan no longer trusts men after her ex-husband ruined her. Harper introduces Megan to Luc, knowing that Megan needs to allow herself a night to be romanced. After a hot night with Luc she knows nothing more can happen with him since she is only in Paris for 4 days. She won't allow herself to become involved since she has a son back in the states and her photography business. Neither of them want to ever get married since they both have busy lives. Neither one tells the other their true feelings for each other.
Megan's mom, Helen, tells her daughter "We all get only one shot at living life the way we are meant to." Megan's neighbor, Charlie, is interested in dating her mother however, her mother is not willing to move on with her life after losing her husband.
Will one night be enough for Luc or Megan? This is a romance novel, we all know the answer to this!!! Who can resist a French accent by a handsome man, this will make any woman swoon!! A situation comes up that forces the main character's to decide if they will be able to be together or not, you will have to purchase the book to find out what happened.
Luc's assistant, Simone, will throw a twist in the story that will make the reader's want to throw their kindle's across the room. Jealousy by another woman is a dangerous situation.
I gave this book a 5 star rating since I was unable to put it down. If you enjoy banter, humor, angst, and hot steamy scenes, one click to purchase. This author writes in dual point of view allowing the reader access to what the main character's are thinking and feeling. This is an easy read and flows without editing errors to throw readers off.
“Somehow Megan had stripped him of his self-control and made him question everything he thought he knew with just her smile, the touch of her hand, her laugh, her kiss. He had never known such fierce and complete love before, and he knew without a doubt that this was the real thing. She made him happy and filled him up in ways he hadn't known were possible.”
Megan is a single mom. Her marriage ended badly as her husband was a pain killers and alchol addicted. She starts a new life with her son Elliot and the help of her sweet mother Helen. Her experience has made her insecure and wary about men and relationships.
“For so many years, she had fought to keep her feelings in check, at a distance, even. Within twenty-four hours, Luc had managed to cause those walls she had built around her heart to crumble into dust. She felt like she had been cut wide open, exposed to him, and she couldn't have that. It simply wouldn't do for her to be in love. Period.”
The sudden attraction between Magan and Luc is explosive. What started as a one nigth stand becomes something more than great sex, but they are so stubborn and deny their feelings for each other. Only an unexpected surprise is forcing them to come to terms with their relationship.
“You know, Megan, sometimes we have to take a chance on something that isn't logical but feels right. Evrything about being with you fells right to me.”
This book is full of emotions. I cried and I laughed. There are all the things I love in a book: love, friendship, family, second chances, and an hot man and steamy sex.
Luc is mature man, handsome, rich, he exudes power. He has the charm of the typical frenchman and he's so romantic. I'd have loved to be Megan at that dinner on the boat, in Paris, on the Seine River, or on top of the Eiffel Tower, with Luc.
I loved Megan chatacter because she's strong, focused on her family and she's really a great mom. But she's also vulnerable and hardheaded.
I liked also the minor characters. Helen, Megan's mother so sweet and wise. Harper, Megan's best friend, brilliant and protective.
Harper really got my attention. Will the next book about her? I hope so.
This book can be read as a standalone.
This book was given to me for my honest review.
A baking of an apple pie from the time we peel and slice the apples to the adding of the flour, cinnamon with a touch of sugar, the arranging the apples in the perfect crust to slow bake in the oven makes a wonderful and slow combining treat. When it comes out of the oven we are in awe of the first touch of the apples as we consume this amazing treat.
Luc-smart, hunky businessman and French
Megan-typical normal, pretty,fresh and sassy
Megan is the typical woman that has been burned by the best in her past. She does not want a relationship or love. She has a set kind of life that she lives with her son and is set in her ways. Finding love again is not on her radar so she thinks. What happens when her heart tells her differently? Can she cherish the love or will she run like the wind from it? Can she let the man with the electric spark into her world? Will he want to come into the world of the unknown of normalcy?
Luc is a businessman true to heart. He is the epitome of a man whore. He likes to sleep with woman and then walk away never letting his feelings get involved. But what happens when he meets a woman that knows how to say NO to him? Will he think differently in his ways? If he happens to be able to get the woman into his bed will he let her go or try to keep her? Will he open his heart to this woman or just be closed off and send her on her way? Will his past dictate his future?
Luc and Megan’s journey together is one that you could say fairytales are made of. Luc struggles from not wanting to get close to a woman and Megan struggles not wanting to get close a man in fear of getting hurt. But what happens with cupid hits you with the proverbial arrow? Do they walk away even though struggles arise? Can Luc come into the normal everyday life and be the man that Megan wants him to be? Can Megan let go of her fears and let Luc love her the way she deserves to be loved? Can Megan take the chance along with her son that thinks Luc is the bee’s knees? Can this couple find the love through heartache and strength to become one? To say good bye to the past fears and forge on to the happiness that they so richly deserve? This is their journey.
To the author: This book had me from page 1 and tugged at my heartstrings till the very last page. You had me on the edge of my seat not wanting to leave this book for one moment in fear that I might miss something in the book. The suspense alone in this read was amazing and the ending phenomenal. I hope your readers enjoy this book as much as I did.
