I received a copy of Break Me from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Break Me is part of the Dirty Bits from Carina Press. The Dirty Bits from Carina Press give you what you want, when you want it. Designed to be read in an hour or two, these sex-filled microromances are guaranteed to pack a punch and deliver a happily-ever-after.
New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff delivers the final installment in her thrillingly romantic Art of Pleasure series.
Seven days, seven nights…
One week of passion.
One week of submission.
One week where anything—and everything—goes.
Destiny Bridges has always been driven by the images in her head. For most of her life, her art has been everything to her, with people and life and even sex coming in very distant seconds.
Until journalist Heath Lewis comes to town to interview her for one of the top art magazines in the world. Suddenly he’s asking all kinds of questions she doesn’t know how to answer…and pushing her in ways she never imagined possible.
Ways that have her craving him and the pleasure he so effortlessly gives her.
With Heath, Destiny lets her body take control for the first time in her life. For one week, she gives herself over to all the wicked, wonderful things Heath demands of her, and in doing so learns more about herself—and her art—than she ever dreamed possible.
But when the week is over and Heath is still pushing for more—pushing for everything—she must decide if the changes he’s brought to her life, and her art, are changes she can live with for the rest of her life.
Break Me is part of Carina Press’ micro romance line, The Dirty Bits, which is a collection of short, easy-to-read erotic romance stories that should take around an hour or so to read. As such, they tend to be less about the plot and believability of the story, rather, they focus on the intense connections made by characters in a short space of time.
While I have to admit that I found the plot and timeline of the story unconvincing (even with the above caveat well grounded in my mind before beginning), Break Me was still a fun way to spend an hour or so reading.
Destiny is an artist who creatures amazing glass sculptures and her path crosses with journalist, Heath, when he’s assigned to interview her for an article. She’s a very private person and he’s recovering from injuries sustained while working as a war correspondent. The two have a week of intense romance in which they need to sort out what is simple lust and what might be the beginning of something real.
For what it was, Break Me was fun. As a reader I had to shift my perspective from full-length romance novel to micro romance but that’s a good thing.
