5+++++++...... INCREDIBLE STARS

I want to start off this review by making a claim on Macsen Sloan!! That’s right ladies...HE.IS.MINE!!! The words I would use to describe him are swoon worthy, sweet, charming, tender, rough around the edges, misunderstood, smart, intense and just plain delicious. He sings to my soul, he is the mayo to my mustard, the almond to my chocolate, the frosting to my cake. I don’t know what it is about him but he has one hun
This will be a full review because I need to warn the masses.

Actual rating: stars sub zero (and I really mean somewhere around absolute zero)

Here is the good news: this book is not as over(t)ly misogynist as its predecessor.

Here is the not so good news the what else is new: it's still misogynist as fuck.

That is how I was going to begin this review.

Then I arrived at that horrible second part and suddenly we're calling everybody sluts and whores again for absolutely no reason. Really. I don't kno

REVENGE. Emilia Wentworth has spent the last few years getting revenge for her sister. She’s crossed every name off her list but one. That last name is Macsen Sloan.

I’ve tried so hard to use those two annoying F words: forgive and forget. It never works. I can forgive, but no matter how hard I try, the memories never fade.

Something terrible happened three years ago to Emilia’s sister. It tore her family apart. Nothing has been the same. She can’t forget and she can’t move on

Macsens story was incredible. I loved him. Now in true real life between us ...... Macsen really is the brother for me. Quiet. Reserved. Non-party animal. Beta and Alpha ❤

“I achieved nothing in my revenge, except handing over my heart to the one person I was supposed to hate.”

Some writers make you feel everything the characters feel, make you take the journey with them, feel every single bump in the road, but then on occasion you come across an author whose writing also makes you feel everything they felt while writing that book. Their writing style is so transparently emotional, personal, honest, that when you finish that story you not only know each

You think you know Macsen Sloan......but you don't. He is so much more complex than you could have imagined in Every Which Way. Get ready for an incredibly intense, gripping, sexy and intellectually stimulating read. I cannot get enough of this book and it is now one of my very favorites!!!

Emilia Wentworth would do anything for her sister. I fell for Emilia after just a few sentences. She got into my heart quickly and never left. I fell for Mac (he lets me call him that) in E.W.W. He wasn't the

Breaking the Wrong is the second book in the Sloan Brothers series by Calia Read. It is the story of Emilia and one of the Sloan boys. Just in case you haven’t read the first in the series, Every Which Way, I’ll leave his name out so it won’t spoil anything for you… :)

I absolutely loved Breaking the Wrong. Why, you ask? There are so many reasons why I loved it, but I'll start with the characters. I am a character reader. I love it when I can connect with the characters in the books I read. Not only did I love the characters in this one, but the overall plot was unique and keep me guessing the whole time. Bravo, Calia Read!

I'll start with dissecting Emilia. When I first met her in Every Which Way, she scared me a little bit. LOL I wasn't sure where Read was go

"The truth is rarely pure and never simple."

Oh Macsen....I just want to put your dark, broody self in my pocket and keep you close always. Calia Read knocked this one out of the park - I was a fan of Thayer and Severine's story, but I absolutely fell in love with Macsen and Emilia. Even in Every Which Way I was drawn to Macsen, I have an slightly unhealthy attraction to dark, misunderstood, and moody men - I love finding redeemable qualities in those who think they are irredeemable.

Ever since I read the first book last year I've been counting down the days til this book would come out. I don't think I realized just how much I was falling for this series til I found out how long I'd have to wait for the next one. So when I saw that Breaking the Wrong was out I literally screamed and jumped to read it.

There is so much mystery that surrounds this book that you won't be able to put it down until you find out what's going on! To say that I absolutely enjoyed this book is an understatement. I was lucky enough to read it while travelling and I didn’t run the risk of any interruptions and I was thankful for that!! The only issue I had with the book was wanting more time with Emilia’s sister. I wanted more flashback scenes. I wanted to understand her motivations for doing what she did and I have to ...more

"There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness"

I think if that was the overall message of the book, it would’ve been so much more satisfying. But ultimately, the story diverged away from the forgiveness aspect. Instead, the plot revolved around Emiliana attempting to seek revenge against Mac for her sister’s death. However, one would think that before one goes out and plots out such detailed plans for revenge, one would meticulously research every single detail and make sure the perso

More Macsen! I needed Macsen to get his story. While Thayer and Severine are doing well, where does that leave Macsen??? Yes. You need to read the first book first or you will be confused and frustrated.

Emilia comes to campus to settle a score. She has a Burn List of pele she wants to exact revenge upon for something that happen to her sister. But who is she after. Thayer, Macsen, or Severine? Emilia is quiet and conniving. She weasels her way into Mac's life but discovers he has also weaseled

Now to me this book was a thousand times better then every which way. For one it was about my favourite brother Macsen.... Two I connected soooo much more with the characters in this book... Three the storyline was just deep very deep... 4 the writing flowed a lot better and I didn't feel any gaps in this book like I did with book one....

I have to admit that after reading the first book Every Which Way that I was not sure I would like a book about Macsen. In the first book, I went from loving Macsen to being really disappointed and not liking him by the end. And at the beginning of Breaking the Wrong, I started to see the qualities in Macsen I initially liked about him. He is smart, kind of nerdy, quiet, and deep. I had a little hard time warming up to Emilia as well. We briefly met her in the first book, but have no idea why sh ...more

First, I must say that I read somewhere that a reader thought Breaking the Wrong was a stand-alone book and didn’t think you needed to read book one beforehand. I would strongly disagree with that statement. Not only would you be clueless about half of what is going on, you would also entirely miss out on the evolution of the main character which is the point of this book. Do yourself a favor and don’t read this review if you haven’t read book one. Oh, and go out and download book one, Every Whi

First let me start of by saying, if you haven't read the 1st book in this series "Every Which Way" do so before reading "Breaking the Wrong". I can honestly say I didn't care much for Macsen in the 1st book "Every Which Way", but my opinion of him definitely changed while reading "Breaking the Wrong". I thought Emilia and Macsen were a great couple together. This book does have a HEA. I'd really like to see more books in this series so we can see more of Severine and Thayer and also Emilia and M ...more

I completely fell in love with Emilia and Macsen! My heart literally clenched - I was so deeply rooted in their story. In Every Which Way Macsen and even Emilia were presented to the readers in such a flawed way... I was uncertain how this book would turn out. This was a highly anticipated novel for me because I new the revenge angle would make for a delicious read. It did not disappoint... and gave me even more than I had hoped for. The sweet love between Emilia and Macsen was so unexpected and ...more

Calia, you blew my mind. It imploded. Really, it did! It's like jello in there today.
I started reading this a little bit worried about whether l would even like the characters (Macsen did little to impress me in EWW), and Emilia..... l was concerned l wouldn't relate to her.
I shouldn't have worried, it was amazing!!

I was expecting lots of feels when I knew this book was Macsen Sloan but unfortunately I couldn't connect with the MC Emilia, I mean she was just okay.

Bump 3 stars to 4 stars

Not sure where my head was on the first go round. Just like book 1, my ratings for book 2 will increase. I must have been comparing the reads to another book that just resonated with my soul when I gave my original ratings. Or the quality of writings have went down hill. Who knows?????

Macsen totally redeems himself in this boom and I like the TRUE him. You never got who he was as a person in the first book so I am glad he revealed more of himself in this book.

Great read and am sad I'm done reading it.

After reading Every Which Way and getting a very fleeting glimpse at Emilia’s character, I was more than intrigued by Breaking the Wrong. Revenge books aren’t easy and taking revenge and turning it into romance is even harder…so count me in.

Emiliana Wentworth makes no secret of the fact that she is out for revenge…revenge against the hurt her family has suffered and especially revenge for her sister. I respected Emilia from the sta

An addicting story with amazingly in depth characters, it was everything I wanted it to be, and more.

Completely different from book one in the Sloan Brothers series ~ Every Which Way (Review), I liked this book ten times more and really didn't want it to end. The feel of this book was completely different, with such a smooth writing style, the angst and drama were both completely intense and held my attention from start to fini
