This book was amazing. I couldn't put it down.
One spring night in the small town of Palmetto, South Carolina, a young girl's dream would be shattered forever. Raped and beaten by the three town hell-raisers, Jade Sperry's life would be irrevocably changed. Had she been weak, she would have stayed in the mud that her attacker left her at. But more compelling than her will to survive was the need to see her attackers punished for their crimes. But when her plea for...more
Breath of Scandal is more of a drama. There are some elements of romance to it, but that's not really the focus. What is boils down to is a revenge story. The main character, Jade, is gang raped as a teenager in the 70's, and what follows is a blow by blow account...more
This was a difficult listen... due to the subject matter. It's brutal, disturbing and dark at times, however, it does leave you with a brighter ending. A heroine to root for all the way. You cry with her, get angry with her and want revenge for her as bad as she wants it herself.
Ms. Brown is a very versatile author who never fails to deliver whether writing romance, suspense or a combinat...more
Oh, oke, serius. Seperti apa yang dibilang oleh sinopsisnya, buku ini mengisahkan seorang gadis yang punya begitu banyak mimpi dan cita-cita namun dipaksa untuk mengubur semuanya bersama dengan kematian 'masa depan'nya. Dan itu semua hanya karena keangkuhan dan kesombongan rekan-rekan sekolahnya. Astaga. Mengesalkan. *straightface*
Tapi Tuhan itu adil, seiring dengan dewasanya si tokoh utama dan ia belajar untuk membalaskan dendamnya kepada penghancur masa depannya, justr...more
One of my favorite books by Sandra Brown. You will find yourself wrapped up in several different emotions, but the the one emotion that filled me throughout the complete book was amazement and awe for Jade. After her horrendous tragedy, Jade remains to be a very classy and determined lady regardless of the obstacles she faces. Then there is the sweet revenge...and boy, how sweet it is!! Definitely a must read. Y...more
Not only do both stories evolve quickly (which is exactly what's keeping the adrenaline-level so euphorically high), but the Characters are similar in what they represent, such as "The supportive good guy", "The independent heroine" or "The contro...more
On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family. And she never forgot their spoiled son, who, with his two friends, changed her life forever. Someday, somehow, she'd return, exact a just revenge -...more
It made me want to continue reading romance and so I have almost all of Sandra's books now.
Some are better than others but I enjoy them all and this one started it all for me.
Now I write romance and am so grateful for ever finding this book.
This was an awesome story of first love, betrayal, hurt and, most importantly, vengeance. I love Jade. She is a strong woman and even at the tender age of fourteen I admired her and...more
I cheered for Dillon and Jade. I knew they were going to end up together, but my God what a difficult path they took getting there. You feel when reading this book: anger, depression, loneliness, grief, rage-there's LOTS of rage, hope, and love.
This was my first Sandra Brown. I plan to read more.
I should say that I...more
