Title: Breaking Free
Author: Alexis Noelle
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Holly James is trying to move on with her life, but it’s not easy. She can’t stand to be touched by anyone, not even her own family. She is a lost broken shell of the person that she used to be. She realizes that shutting everyone out is much easier then opening up and letting someone hurt her.
Drew Walker is no prince charming. He doesn’t care about anyone but himself and has no intention of changing. He loves the life of excitement and entitlement that comes with being the lead singer of a band, and has no plans to get tied down anytime soon.
When these two meet there is an immediate chemistry. The thing that surprises Holly is that she can tolerate his touch. He makes her feel like herself once again and gives her the freedom and comfort she has been desperate to find. On the other hand he is self-centered, egotistical, and everything that she should stay away from.
What happens when the one person who can save you might also be the person who can break you?
“There was something about Drew, but I had no idea what it was. He was self-centered, cocky, and definitely not prince charming. Maybe that’s why I liked him though. Maybe I didn’t want to be saved by the handsome prince. Maybe I wanted to be corrupted by the evil king.”
**Breaking Free is for mature audiences only—strong language, and explicit sexual content are apparent.**
Review By Lisa 3.5 stars
Breaking free disappointed me, After reading the rest of the series and knowing that each book got better and then reading this, i was expecting more.
That isn't to say it isn't a good book if you like the insta-love kind of book.
This was Holly's story, and after the 'incident' (which i won't tell you about and spoil it) she meets Drew, Arrogant rock star that gets everything he wants when he wants it. Holly runs off with drew who also has issues, he eventually pushes her away so far he worries that he won't get her back ever again.
This book had so much potential that i know Alexis is capable of because i've read her other books, but this one just didn't work for me. It was too fast paced, not long enough and i think if we had actually gone through the 'incident' and the months following with Holly it would have made this book so much better.
