Confession time: I am a black woman who doesn't read a lot of romance novels featuring black heros and heroines. Yes, I read them but not a lot. I can probably count on my hands the number of romance novels that I've read by black authors in the last six months. It's not that it's something that I've consciously done. But it's very hard to decipher the good from the bad. There seems to be an unwritten rule in the black community that you don't trash your brother or sisters efforts. It seems that ...more
Rochelle Alers is back with a new story from her popular Hideaway series. Fans of her long time work are reunited with the Cole family. It’s like visiting old friends.

I loved it! I felt like I'd been starving for stories of the Cole family once I'd picked up the book! "Breakaway" defines contemporary romance. The dialogue, scenes, and language was brazen and fresh. Celia and Gavin's chemistry heated up each pages while, their banter made you laugh. Anyone who's followed the Hideaway series know that the Cole's, and Kirkland's can be a bit intimidating, but Gavin Faulkner held his own. This book is now my favorite in the Cole family romances. I'd definitely re ...more
Good read, expected more action.

I love Rochelle Alers and how she connects the books that involve the families. However I was a little disappointed that this story didn't have more action. Good read, but not one of my favorites.
With an undercover FBI agent and a doctor hiding out before testifying at a high profile trial, I thought this was going to be a romantic suspense. It's not. This is number 14 in Alers Hideaway Novels. Haven't read the others so I don't know how this compares. I had trouble buying into Celia's previous relationship, and some of Gavin's hot buttons seemed pretty neurotic. I can see how romance readers might get hooked on all the interconnected family stories in this series.
Book was ok. Took me a long time to get through it because it just didn't hold my attention. It was a combination love story/crime drama except the object of the story premise never makes an appearance (reference would be more accurate ) until you're 97% done with the book. I can't recommend this book.
