⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐! Breach, book 1 of 4.5. Inter-office forbidden romance with rough & kinky sex plus a dirty talker!

“He was rough and dirty, and I knew my body was ruined for any other man.”

Books should be read in this order:
Book 1: Breach
Book 2: Infraction
Book 4: Breached
Book 3: Reciprocity
Book 4.5: Release

Breach (book 1) opens up to transactional attorneys, Delilah Palmer, Lila and Nathan Thorne sharing an office at their law firm. Despite taking and instant dislike to each other they share a fi
This is definitely one of those times when I find myself in the minority. Most of my friends loved 'Breach' and I, sadly, did not. I was really looking forward to reading this book and I was sure that it would be right up my alley after hearing about all of the steamy sex scenes that filled the pages. I love some smutty goodness, after all!

Unfortunately, there was little else but sex to fill the pages. From start to finish, this book was filled with pretty much nothing but sex scenes. I'm no pru

"I wanted to be a part of it, be a part of his soul. He was my God, and I worshiped him."

WOW. What an amazing, intriguing and mind-blowing story... It managed to captivate my entire attention from the moment I started reading it. Breach is a dark, gritty, emotional, realistic and heartbreaking story. And above all that, this book is OFF THE CHARTS HOT!!! Seriously. Keep a bucket of ice nearby because you're going to need it.

Not only did I love the story, which was beautiful and heartbreaking, I loved the characters, and it was seriously one of the hottest books I have ever read. Ever.

Delilah Palmer is an attorney at a law firm who has been severely overworked the last few months. Not that she minds too much. Lila has a few friends, but she mostly keeps to herself. She has suffered abuse growing up, and it has shaped her into the woman she is today. On the outside, she is a nice normal person

I had trouble deciding whether I was going to give this 2 or 3 stars, and in all honesty - it probably deserves three. At the end, I chose the former because if I was having to decide in the first place, it means there was a significant reason why.

Breach was one of those stories that took a while for you to get into it, but by the time you were partially invested in the story - it hit the ending chapter. And while this ended in a cliffh

People have gone on and on about the dirty talking in this book...

And then people say Travis is bad, abusive and mental... Well what the fuck is Nathan then? :\

I don't know who was raping who in this book.. Either Lila was attacking Nate or Nathan was attacking Lila, but I swear they were raping each other at points in this book; rape was happening... LOL!!

Here goes ...

I don't usually read reviews before I pick up a book. There are two reasons for that: A. I don't like any sort of spoilers before I start a book and B. I like to form my own opinion.

I do, however, tend to read reviews after I finish. Again, there are two reaons for that: A. to see what others thought and why (especially if their rating is way different from mine) and B. to have a laugh.

Having said that ...

I can see why so many gave this book a low rating.

I first read Breach in 2014, and I will never forget the emotions that this dark romance evoked in me. Breach is the first book in the Breach Series and believe me when I say, once you start this journey you will not want to stop! Now that I have had the opportunity to re-read this beauty, I can honestly say that Nathan and Lila were even sweeter the second time around. K.I.

WOW, what an Heartbreaking, sensual and outright gorgeous story. 'Breach' has taken my reading experience totally by surprise. They say every good story has a memorable beginning, middle and end. With that thought in mind I can say I was convinced from the start, addicted by 50% and completley in love by the end ... See for yourselves readers, you will not be disappointed.

5 Broken Stars in Hell

"My heart, my soul… they’re gone, dead, but my body remains. This is my purgatory."


There are some people broken on the inside as well as the outside. Empty shells that somehow keep breathing, wishing they were dead. Consumed by darkness, tormented by demons, haunted by reliving their worst nightmares in the unforgiving daylight. The light that shines without reaching their souls.


They live in a prison of their own making, unable to escape. Inside the walls they built arou

Holy Shit! I think this is the first time I've read a book with such dirty sex. It was insane, hot at times but still insane!!

Normally I'm don't rate book high which is mostly about sex but this book is so different. To a point that the dirty sex is what made the story..

Well, it looks like this is just one of those 'everyone loved it but me' books. Just goes to show you that this story is not for everyone.

How do I even eloquently sum up the first half of this book? Oh...right!

Basically, the first 50% is just filled with angry and rough fucking (it was not sex, fucking is the best way to describe it) with barely any plot. We get a few glimpses into the darkness that Delilah hides. But that is pretty much it.

Both heart breaking and intensely passionate, Breach tells the tumultuous story of two broken and damaged people finding love, security and healing in each other.

It's a dark, gritty, captivating roller coaster ride from start to finish and will leave you eager to jump right into the next book!

So, I'll be honest...what drew me to this book was all my friends telling me what a dirty talker Nathan was and Holy Cow - they were right. But as always, that's only part of the story.....

We have two severely messed up people...wait, more than messed up...they are broken, that are extremely attracted to each other. It doesn't help that there is a non-fraternization policy at their work which definitely amps up the intensity. And why not throw in some, or a lot, of jealousy? Just to get things n

Physical attraction is very powerful thing, isn’t it?

I mean, you can be physically attracted to a person you despise;
A person you shouldn’t be attracted to;
A person who can make your thoughts a little bit mindless;
A person who can leave your heart a little bit ribless.

And all the while…

Me reading Breach in public:

I know what to expect when I read a book like this.
1. Hot sex.
2. Dirty talking alpha-male.
3. Shitty heroine.
4. Some kind of emotionally and/or physically damaged main character(s).

What I got was . . .
1. Sex hot enough to burn a hole through my pants.

Breach is a story about to broken souls who find themselves pulled towards each other and form intense, passionate and extremely sexual relationship. I felt in love with characters and was deepely touched and captivated by their story. I LOVED IT!

My Lila and Nathan:

He was a broken man, and it made me wonder - can two broken souls make one whole person?

Lila & Nathan are both fighting demons from their past that hinder their relationship from moving forward. They work together in a law firm where there is a strict non-fraternization policy. Both are forced to conceal their relationship in the public.

What happens behind closed doors is a whole another story!

Breach is the story of a forbidden office tryst in a company where the non-fraternization policy is iron clad. It's about two very broken individuals that find healing in each other. Will they be able to find love with one another or will they break each other further?

Delilah Palmer, Lila, is a control freak in every aspect of her life. It's the only way she can keep up the facade; Lila needs everyone to see her as a strong, self-as

Where do I start?? Good gracious. I’m honestly not sure how I feel about this book. There were so many disturbing moments that I don’t even know how to describe what I felt. It’s not your run of the mill erotica that’s for sure. It was dark and very gritty and at times made my toes curl. I hated everything about Nathan the main character. He was so demeaning and condescending to Lila (the main female character that I wasn't sure I was going to be ab

Wow, what a great book! I wasn't sure what to expect going into this book. I definitely got a lot more than I bargained for.

Nathan and Delilah are both lawyers. They are stuck in the same office working together. Delilah has very low self worth. She wasn't wanted as a child and was verbally and physically abused. In her mind, she knows a gorgeous man like Nathan could never want someone like her. She is so broken...
