Teaser 1

Everyone Could Use A Fresh Start…A New Beginning...

grey divider no background hi

With a new semester of school, besties Brealynn and Kelsey weren’t expecting the Taylor Brothers to turn their worlds upside down.

Break Me was one of those NA coming of age stories, of young individuals going through some hefty growing pains and paving new paths toward their futures.

I really enjoyed the story of Brea and Colt (since this no

I won this book in a giveaway and promised to write a review.

I want to always be honest in my reviews as I don't write them to please (or displease) the author but to give other readers a piece of my mind and thoughts about the book.

Did I like it? Yes but less than I expected.

Why? Is it badly written or did the author do a bad job? No, not at all. But I could not really fall into Colt and Brealynn's world. Younger readers would maybe feel a stronger connection with them.

Their love story was swe

I liked this book more than I thought I would which makes me really happy. There's misunderstandings, which is quite common while in college, hot sex, and the saving grace of falling in love. The hero and heroine are both equally awesome to read which is always a plus. My rating stands at an even and solid 4 stars.

BXM professional rider Colt Taylor is the ultimate young playboy and why shouldn't he be? He's wealthy, good looking, charming, and young. He's dealing with the fame, the girls throwin

Forecast: Bright and Clear ahead for new author Ashley Christin. Break Me is her first work and she shows great promise in the New Adult genre.

Brealynn is experiencing college with her best friend, Kelsey. She's been avoiding the party scene because she has a boyfriend. Until he turned out to be a scumbag. Now she and her buds are going to see what all the buzz is about.

Colt is the subject of lots of that buzz. He has been gone for a while on the BMX Bike Tour. He's back an

NA Sports Romance w/ Likeable Characters

Pretty standard "bad boy athlete meets good girl" college romance. Well written and well edited. Really enjoyed the characters and look forward to reading book two in hopes than some of the storytelling potential gets cashed in.

A guy like Colt Taylor wouldn't waste his time on me. I'm a one man girl. He has a never-ending supply of girls begging to be with him. He would never settle for just one and I can't, won't, share.

Oohhh, I do love me a good drama fest and this book had all the ingredients for a great one!! The jilted, sweet, girl next door with her crazy ass best friend. The seemingly heartless manwhore, with his grou

Brealynn, newly single, and her bestie Kelsey are ready for a new semester at college, but Brealynn is not ready for Colt Taylor. Sure shes drooled over him in the past, but she knows his reputation with the ladies; he's the love em' and leave em' type and Brealynn is a one man type of girl she doesn't want to be second to anyone.

Colt Taylor has just suffered a devastating loss, but hes back at school and he has Brealynn in his sights. Hes wanted he

I enjoyed this book. For a new author I think Ashley Christin did well. I liked the main characters and liked the secondary ones even more. I think as Ashley continues to write she will grow into a better author.

This was a story of a guy who can't get a girl out of his head, until he makes her his. He never thought that he'd let someone in again after some horrible life events. Loved the characters and can't wait to read how the story and characters continue.

I really enjoyed this read. The characters were fun and lovable, and the story kept me interested and laughing throughout. The bits and pieces of steam we're quite a nice addition too! Great job, Ashley! I can't wait to read more about these kids!

Break Me (TBX #1) by Ashley Christin is the first standalone book in her new TBX series. This is my first read by Author Ashely Christin and I can honestly say that I will be reading more of her work in the future. This series is based on a group of 2 brothers alongside their good friends attending college as well as focusing on the Pro BMX riding careers of both brothers, Colt and Parker.

I usually tend to stay away from college romances because at times and depending on the writing, I find that

Colt - Well, where do I start?! Poor boy had it rough for a while, he went to the dark side, with a loss like that, he was lost. His biggest fan gone in an instant. Leaving town for a while helped heal the wounds, are so he thought it was a good idea at the time (only thing I'm saying about their dad, he is a piece of garbage).

Anyone could really connect to Brealynn. She's just a girl who has gotten out of a crappy relationship trying to move on. She could easily be your best friend. The interactions between her and her best friend Kelsey kept me giggling. You could tell they knew everything about each other and liked each other anyways.

Colt is a little tougher to figure out. He hides so much of himself and his family from everyone that it took time to get to know him, even for Brealynn. He so caring it's hard not to

Brealynn and Kelsey have returned to school and the last thing they were expecting was to have some hot as hell brothers to rock their world.

Colt has never fallen in love and doesn't plan on doing it now. He loves to play the field and mess around . The last thing he expected was for Brealynn to knock his socks off and have him rethink about whether he wanted a "serious" relationship or not.

Brealynn had her heart broken by her first and only bo

So let me start by saying that I do not normally read New Adult nor enjoy it. Something about the blurb caught my eye after a friend of mine recommended the book. so I took a chance, leaping into the book, and can I just tell you that I was so glad that I did!

This was my first book to read by this author and Ashley Christin all I have to say is GREAT JOB! Her work and belief in this story are obvious. The story flows in a steady pace, Her characters are well developed, so much so you want to kno

You have two college girls Kelsey and Brealynn who are sisters from another mother, would go to jail for one another... They are the funniest duo I have ever read.. What I loved most about these two, is that they had each others back from page one.

I absolutely loved this book. When two broken souls meet and try to mend each other, its a very powerful thing. Then throw it the best friend that has you literally laughing out loud.

Brealynn had her heart broken by her hiflfh school sweetheart. She swore off love. She felt like no one would ever truly love her.

Meet Colt. Holy hotness. Colt is pure alpha male with a broken side as well. After finding out his mother killed herself, he believes it was because of the love she had for his father. H

I rated Break Me a 3.5 stars because I just felt no connection to the characters. The storyline and character development is there, I just didn't connect. This doesn't mean that others won't or haven't, I just didn't. This is a novel about coming of age and finding yourself. Brea and Kelsey just seemed so immature for college age. I found some of their jokes funny but after so long they just fell flat. (Maybe I'm just too old!)

The author did a great job on the his/her POV and I think that helped

These are just my issues and why I could not continue with the story. You may like it, but not something I was able to connect with.

There is a lot of useless explanation about stuff that lost my interest in the story. The heroine has a crush on the hero before she even goes away to college. I thought she would meet Colt in college, but she already knows him and crushes on him.

This was not for me, but may work for you.
