She’s the girl who got away, but now she’s back…
Four years was all it took.
I told myself I didn’t need friends. I didn’t need family. I sure as fuck didn’t need him.
And you know what?
I was right.
He had been inside of me, coursing through my veins.
So I cut and bled Dash Chambers until I was free.
But the day I returned to Six Forks and was thrown at his feet, I realized I would never forget how it felt to have every inch of him inside me.
…and he’s waiting.
Angel thought if she ran far enough, she’d be free.
What’s mine will always be mine.
This time I do things my way.

DISCLAIMER: While Breaking Love isn’t dark, the first of the series contains sensitive themes many people aren’t able to swallow.
Okay. First, I have to comment on that disclaimer above. I disagree with it. Breaking Love IS dark. The themes may not be quite as sensitive as the first three books in the series, but they are still sensitive. The relationship(s) depicted in this book is not healthy.
That being said, the writing and plot other than the relationship is very addictive. It’s what has kept me reading. The mystery / suspense plot continues through each book and is built on. It got even more twisted and interesting in Breaking Love. I loved all of the revelations and how they effected the entire cast of the series.
Back to the relationship aspect of this book… Dash might not be the monster Keiran or Keenan were in the previous books, but he wasn’t a saint. He was manipulative in more ways than one. His relationship with Willow was sweeter than any of the others. Despite a few of his actions, I actually liked Dash a lot. His intentions were a lot purer than his friends’.
I hate to say it, but I am not a fan of Willow after reading this book. I didn’t like how she treated her friendships with Sheldon and Lake. Her whole reason for being absent was just ugh. When Willow did return to town, she made one bad decision after the next. She hid things she didn’t need to hide. I don’t know why she couldn’t trust the people who obviously had her back, but it made me so irritated.
This may sound weird, but my favorite thing about Breaking Love was the end. I wasn’t expecting it and it was an amazing cliffhanger! I was so happy to have the next book ready to read.
