“You can't make decisions based on fear and the possibility of what might happen.”
----Michelle Obama

Horne's Breaking Mobiusis that tale which shows us that sometimes some good decisions can bring love and fortune upon you and sometimes taking wrong decisions might lead you on a path of deceit, jealousy and failure.

T.R. Horne's recently released contemporary romance title, Breaking Mobius, flawlessly and intricately weaves the lives of three broken individuals trying to make good. Each of her characters seem to be seeking salvation within their separate relationships. Justice Bradford, University of Atlanta golden boy, is well on his way to fame and fortune on the gridiron. Constantly surrounded by women attracted to his status as an athlete, he wants nothing more than to hold as tightly as he can to his r ...more

Breaking Mobius is the kind of book that the reader gets lost in, and the characters are so realistic that they seem like actual people. I found myself caring about the characters so much that I couldn't put the book down. I had to find out what happened to these characters, so I kept telling myself that I would read just one more page before leaving for work (I was late several times).

I have to give props to the author for her clever writing style. The book is told in first person, but there a

I won this book from a giveaway which was great! The book was a little slow to start out, but the more I read the more I really got into it. The story was simple and uncomplicated which was refreshing. The characters were really well developed and interesting to learn about. I very much enjoyed the ending and the outing of everyone's business. Good book overall. ...more

T.R. Horne’s debut novel contains 3 narrators, all of whom attend Atlanta University in the early 2000s. The only problem I had with the novel was putting it down. Horne’s greatest strength is characterization. It is obvious that she did not just research and write. Instead, she did what the great authors do - she wrote about things she has experienced in her life. Her style is humble and direct with spirituality and the need for virtues at the foundation of the themes and motifs. As I dug into ...more
Book review originally published here:

Breaking Möbius combines the story of three very different people in a tale of betrayal, deceit, love and lust. The book was written really well, the plot flows nicely, and there was plenty of romance mixed with suspense and mystery. The story is told from first-person POV for all three characters, but at the start of each chapter it’s mentioned whose POV we’re in.

Mali is the first character we meet. She’s left behind

**I received a free copy of this book via goodreads giveaway.

Overall I think this book was an interesting read with complex, real characters that was ultimately an emotional roller-coaster of a read. Filled with mature themes and every situation I can think of (sex, drugs, alcohol, physical/verbal/mental abuse, stalking, love, depression... this list goes on) it felt like the author took on too many themes at once.

The book was broken up not into three shorter stories, but an alternating chapter

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Breaking Mobius follows three college students on their journeys. It was kind of neat to watch how their paths crossed with and without them knowing.

Mali was by far my favorite character. She was girl who was literally running from her past. Coming from an abusive father and a mother who never stood up to him made her basically run to college. She is a talented young woman who loves to dance and who does not get caught u

I would give it 4 stars.

What a roller coaster ride for Mali, Justice and Nicole. I rather enjoyed this novel, so much so that I had to finish it right away...and I did. A lot of interesting plot twists, most are predictable, some not to much. The story revolves around the lives of Mali, Justice and Nicole and each of them gets to tell their story.

There was a decent amount of character and story development, and we get to hear the background of the mai

Breaking Möbius is T.R. Horne’s second work, and I found it to be very well written with a good storyline. The reader experiences the story through the first-person view of multiple characters in an intertwining plot. There’s romance and revenge, and each character’s struggle will keep you reading to see what will happen next. If you’re interested in checking out Horne's author bio, this is what’s available on Amazon:

I really liked this book! It was an emotional roller-coaster, real, sad, humorous, and all the main characters were well written. I loved that every character had their own bask story that did allow us to see what made them into the people they are today. The only downside to this story was Mali ending up with Justice. She was so determined not to end up like her mother, but Justice was a drunk and did physica

Met this author at the Chicago BookCon too.

I'm a sucker for a good cover photo, so of course I bought this book.


I read so many romantic books that I could predict a few things, but I was also surprised by several twists and turns -- brava!

Mali is the first character we meet. She’s left behind an abusive father and a mother too used to the abuse to do anything about, to start her life anew at college, where she’s taking a major in dancing. She loves to dance and she’s really good about it. Justice is suffering from a break-up with his long-time girlfriend Nicole, and he’s wary of starting a new relationship with anyone. He was actually a nice guy. Nicole is the third character we follow and

A little slow, but picks up.

In the beginning, I wasn't fully drawn into the book as it seemed off to a slow start. The book does have good character development and having well developed supporting characters helped to tell the story. Would like to see more of these characters.

I give a lot of 5 star reviews to excellent books but this book is PERFECT! For a debut novel, Horne has set the bar exceptionally high. Her style is amazing, writing in the first person, never missing a step as she seamlessly skips from character to character as the chapters move along.

The plot is current and modern, more so than I've seen in long time. It took me back to my college days...although I'm sure mine weren't quite that steamy. :) I don't typically read romance novels because I can't

I am not a fan of this book. Breaking Mobius was listed in the giveaways under erotica. For me a good erotica novel incorporates the sex into the plot so well that the story could not be told without it. Breaking Mobius was a romance with sex thrown in as an afterthought. To me it seemed that the story was flowing right along and then the author realized that there had been no sex in the last twenty pages so a quick, overly descriptive bout of sex was thrown in.

This story is fast moving and is told from the perspective of three main characters Mali, Justice, and Nicole. Each of them are involved to different extents in the entertainment industry, some are affected by greed and fame. Very enthralling read about the choices you make during your college years and finding yourself.

I was one of the fortunate few to receive a complimentary copy through GoodReads First Reads and the author.

This was a free book from Goodreads. I liked this book. At first I thought it was going to be one of those trashy books but I have to say it has a good story to it. The trashy part is the personality of one of the characters. This story has a lot of different emotions. I was surprised at the ending and would recommend this book.

Breaking Mobius is about three college students, Mali, Justice and Nicole. Their childhood was all different and you can understand why they have chosen the path that they are taking. Their lives intertwine and it is a very interesting read.
