Review: Breaking (Fall or Break #2) by Barbara Elsborg

Archer Hart is on the move before the man he’s just killed is found. When a bullet whizzes past his ear, he realizes hunter is now hunted. So much for his retirement plans. Someone wants him dead and all he can do is keep running.

Downed by a hit and run driver, barrister Conrad Black is certain the ‘accident’ was deliberate but he has no proof or support. In recovery, struggling to work out of partial paralysis, he has plenty of time to wonder who regrets not striking him harder. At this point, running anywhere is a distant dream.

The confidence, determination and stamina of two alphas males will mean little if neither is willing to bend—seize the love offered—and work together to understand why they’re suddenly both marked men. Not easy for either when Archer has broken the law in the worst possible way and Conrad is the law.

Wow, just WOW! I’ve got quite the book hangover here after finishing Breaking. The difference between book one in this series, Falling, and Breaking is close to being like night and day. So much action and intrigue. But on the other hand, they are very similar since they both have lonely men desperately in need of love.

Conrad was certainly not what I expected. After finishing Falling I really didn’t like him. At. All. Then I see he’s getting his own book. OooKaaay. Guess I better get over my dislike of him. And….Yeah turns out I did like him. I certainly get why he was such a jerkface to Malachi. It doesn’t excuse him but at least I get him now. Archer starts out as a scary hot dude and moved into my still kinda scary but maybe more misunderstood hot dude. Oh yes, both this guys are broken, Alpha personalities and neither wants to give an inch. I’d like to say it was Deefor (Freaking funny name BTW!) that helps bridge the gap between them. Once I learned their secrets I just wanted to give them both hugs.

The first half of the book I really enjoyed. There’s a lot of walls these two have to conquer both together and individually not to mention then need to figure out who is trying to kill them. Then right around 50-55% into the story I started to check the page count because I didn’t thing things were going to go too much further without getting drawn out into BoringVille. All of a sudden WHAM! Everything kicks into to high-octane excitement! Holy Twizzlers! I did NOT see that coming! And things just keep coming and now not only can I not put this book done I also can’t devour it fast enough. Just when I think these can’t get any better and things have finally got to start calming down, author Barbara Elsborg manages to kick it up even higher. YOWZA! I was, finally, able to calm down when I got to the end. The end, oh yeah, that ending. Was all I could have wished for. *Sigh*

You know the hardest part about writing reviews? It’s when a book gets you SO EXCITED! you want to shout to the world how good it is and talk details… and you can’t because you would be giving the plot and all the spoilers away. Author Barbara Elsborg has taken me on one heck of a roller coaster ride. Up, down, calm stretch, then dropping me into screaming loopy-dee-loops. By the end I saw in such awe I wanted to jump on the ride called Breaking again. I’m I recommending this book? You betcha! This series just gets better and better. Please, oh please, let there be another book!
