This was my first encounter with the author's work. I've seen posts and reviews and wanted to try her work. This was a perfect story for that purpose. It's a shorter story that still manages to share a hot, sensual, heartwarming story.

Skye wants to explore the world of BDSM. She has had images and ideas since her teens and they get her hot and bothered. She doesn't see herself as a true submissive and she very much needs her control, but yet...
And that is what leads her to contact an on-line BDS

5 Stars

Breaking Skye by Eden Bradley takes us on a short journey of intense attraction. Adam and Skye’s connection to each other was felt with their first meeting. Not only could they feel it, but I could as well.

Skye naively believes she can get over her BDSM fantasies if she partakes in a scene. Adam knows this will not be the case. Neither of them can explain their attraction. Adam never falls for his trainees. Skye never falls for any

Ugh, I want my $2.99 back! This story line could have so much potential. but it was too rushed and the author left a lot of holes....

First I’ll just get to the point and say how much I loved Breaking Skye. Novellas aren’t usually my favorite reading length, as the stories are often too short for satisfying character development. I was completely taken in by this one from the first page. While I like BDSM stories that take place in clubs and with experienced players, I really appreciate one where the woman is new to the lifestyle, but not clueless. Skye is a strong, intelligent and independent woman who has harbored submissive ...more
Lee Anne - OMG! It's TOOOOO Cold!

Breaking Skye is a lovely story about Skye and Adam. Skye has these urges, these submissive urges. She seeks out a Dom to help her purge herself of these urges. She feels like once she tries a little BDSM, she’ll no longer have these urges or desires. It’s all an experiment.

After placing an ad and meeting Adam, Skye heads over to Adam’s house for her session. Skye, of course, follows all safety protocols. She checked his background and let someone know where she was going.

Skye Ballard sat in a coffee house waiting for Adam Dunne to show up and sipped her tea. She had placed an ad on because she had wanted to know what is whas like to be submissive; it had started when she was a teenagers and she only had gotten the courage now. The first two men and made her uncomfortable and she was pleased that Adam agreed to meet with her. Her dad was a drunk and as soon as she turned eighteen she had moved out. Skye did not trust men because of her dad; she always ...more

Skye has had a desire for kink for quite some time & has decided it's time to explore her interest. She believes she can quickly quench her desire & move on, chalk it up to an experience, until she meets Adam Dunne. Adam affects her during their first meeting. He is similarly affected but his years of experience in the scene overrule his desires during their first couple of sessions. Naturally, that control wanes & he's left with a decision-overcome is fear of intimacy or le

First I have to say, I want More Adam!! If you want some light bdsm, then definitely pick up this story!!

Skye has secret submissive desires, and Adam is just the man to help her explore her needs. Of course things have been discussed and rules in place, but rules are made to be broken. Adam only does vanilla sex, and never sex with subs. That is until Skye breaks down his guard and he can no longer resist his feeling for her or the connection they share.

Loved the story line and that it wasn’t a

This was a prize I won from the very lovely Ms. Bradley. This is a very short novella about Skye, interested in playing with submission. The man she finds, is a dom who tries to convince her that one time isn't enough. This book was a sweet little read for me. The speed at which the two fell for each other was rather unbelievable. Unlike the title of the story suggests, I didn't really see a breaking of Skye.

This was one of the earlier works of Ms. Bradley so I'm going to give it a bit more lat

This was too short! That's my major complaint. And I really loved how real the characters were written to be, I felt sorry for Adam when he was resisting again Skye's influence on his feelings and his overall concept on the training relationship between the two of them. I can't wait to read the other books by Eden Bradley. Definitely intense and steamy from beginning to end, but the biggest thing I liked was that Skye's cousin guided to do research and do lots of research before jumping into som ...more

Really nice short story read it in one day. Fast passed and super sexy. If you are into kinky play in your romances then this is a good book to get your hands on. The characters were likable and it seemed like they really had a good idea of the lifestyle. Most books like this don't break down the lifestyle like this one did and I really enjoyed reading that side of it.

I loved the actual story of this book and thought both of the characters were great and very relatable... however it was way too short for me personally. Would have liked it longer. I bought mine on Amazon kindle and the second half of the book (from 60% onwards) was taken up with other book suggestions and the other books from this author.

After reading a lot of Eden Bradley novels, I pretty much knew what to expect. I rated this 4 because of the erotica and the short story wasn't that bad. This is like a short version of her novel "The Dark Garden".

The whole story felt clinical - here is what you say here and how you describe this, etc. Very boring and no real connection to the characters or any feeling of a spark between them

If you enjoyed the 'sanctuary' likely you will enjoy this book. For me it was disappointing for the cost of the books.
