x out of 5 Licks
Break on Through #1
Just one more can’t hurt…right?
Re-belle-ious, free-spirited Lauren Renwick has decided it’s time to trade her wings for roots. That means no more bad boys, no more foolish choices. Yet when she’s stood up on New Year’s Eve, her resolution to stick to her Mama’s Rules for Dating weakens. Especially when she spots sex-in-leather-and-tattoos, Jackson Sullivan.
One look at Lauren, and Jackson is hell-bent on getting her on the back of his Harley and riding straight for his bed. Their night together is an erotic rush that has a new word popping up on his horizon—forever.
Lauren tries to convince herself he’s just one last fling to get bad boys out of her system, yet she finds herself falling hard and fast for a man with a stalker ex and a meddling Irish family. Plus, he has zero chance of passing her uptight parents’ inspection.
Jackson has Lauren’s back, but if she wants all of his heart, she’ll have to meet him halfway—by ditching rules that hold her prisoner, and learning to stand up for what she really wants.
Warning: Contains several highly practical rules for dating—all of which will be broken in the most wicked ways possible, thanks to a domineering alpha male who knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to go after it…rules be damned.
This book was a solid three out of five for me. Overall it made me laugh and sigh and even a little hot under the collar from time to time, but it lacked that something that made me hold on tight and not let go. This one started off with a bang with some hot sexy stuff with a stranger, but fell a little for me after that. The conflict that was introduced in the form of Lexie just didn’t make me feel anything. She was way too desperate and Jackson was a real pushover when dealing with her. Lauren was a bit too controlled by her mother for being a grown woman. Seeing her break every rule was fun though. Jackson is a sexy man who seems to say all the right things at all the right times, but he was a bit crazy with his expectations that Lauren would just accept all the things he said to her as fact without any reasoning behind them. All in all I did enjoy the story and we get a complete resolution with an epilogue (which I absolutely love). I’m looking forward to seeing this author grow as the series grows.

Born in California and raised in South Florida, I’ve moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on my head ever since. Along the way, I worked as a community organizer, a professional matchmaker, a popular blogger, and a crisis counselor (to name a few). All the while, longing to have the guts to do what I really wanted: to write and become a published author. That wish has finally come true and I feel like a karmic cloud has been lifted off my head. Those of you who have also taken a circuitous route in trying to find their path get me – I can tell.
What else? Hmm… I love indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl, wearing black because it’s slimming, the theater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds), and making those close to me laugh ’til they snort. I’m a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but have now happily settled in the cutest lil’ town, Vienna, Virginia, with my awesome and patient husband and two kick-ass girls.
