This book was instalove on steroids and very low angst but it was exactly what I was in the mood for. It had likable MCs and an awesome family by blood and choice, as secondary characters. Looking forward to reading more by this author.

Falling in love with Reed!

Wow, I love this book the main characters grab your attention and pull you in, the side characters. Keep you wanting more. I can't wait till I read the next book in the series. BMX is hot sport, with hot shot dare devils, and the author has captured that perfectly.

Spectacular debut book. I loved the read and fell into it hard. The characters were relate-able and I love insta love books specially when I am having a crap day. Reading a book that gives you both POV's is always a plus for me because I can dig into their minds and see how they really feel instead of me guessing.
Again and amazing read about a family that will melt your heart and a romance that will make you want to live in the book!

Wow. Game changer indeed. Bria and Reed's journey is as fast-paced and engaging as the Ryan family of racers. I love Megan's voice that is, at times, wry, witty and spunky and then turns your heart inside out with the depth of emotion. Can't wait to continue this series!

Breaking the Cycle by Megan Lowe an explosive five-star read. This is the first book in the Rocking Races. What a first book, it’s been a rough ride for the two main characters, Bria Marie Adams and Reed Cooper Ryan, the have some bumps in the road to happiness, and a great bunch of people to share the ride with but it’s never easy, especially as Reed thinks the Ryan men are cursed to lose all the women in their lives.

* I received a copy from the author but this in no way influenced my opinion or review. *

This is an amazing first book in the series! This book makes your heart race in more ways than one!! I love the Ryan Brother's and of course the lovable nephew!! This book focuses mostly on Reed Ryan and his "one" Bria! The two of them have instant chemistry that bonds them together and it is literally love at first sight...I am not usually a fan of these types of books/romances, but it works for this story

Breaking the Cycle started off fast and I just knew this was going to be a fun read. By mid-point, I felt the tone was a bit young for me. I thought the constant I love you’s, cuteness, and couldn’t keep hands off each other was a bit much. I’m not a fan of instant love but this story worked for me. They had smoking hot chemistry and it was written well. Secondary characters were fun and interesting. Loved the family commitment the Ryans have. Overall, solid characters, interesting storyline, an ...more

If you are not a fan of instalove then this book is not for you. I, however, love it. I was in a bit of a book funk and stop reading a book that was hard going.

I'm so glad I read this book next because I really enjoyed it and it gave me hope.

The whole family story was really interesting and I wanted to read more about the characters. I'm sure there are other books or whether this is a standalone or not but I hope there are more.

The Ryan family are interesting and I want more!

This is a great insta-love read. Bria is a college student that is depending how you look at it at the wrong place at the wrong time. When things go south her instincts are to protect a little boy close by, this has the Reed racing men fall in love with her. The Reed racing family is a known name in motor cross and we get a look inside their racing world. Great read, loved the family dynamic.

This has the makings of a fantastic series. There are so many other characters that I'd love to see where their stories take them. This is a love at first sight story, a family cursed when it comes to the women they love, rivalry, forgiveness, love and hope.

BRIA Adams is a student weeks away from graduating uni. She works at Coles supermarket and is studying to work in the PR field. She goes to Wheels several times a week to grab a bite to eat. The Ryan's me

Breaking the Cycle by Megan Lowe Rated 5 stars

This book starts off with a bang. It sucked me right in and I was having a hard time putting it down. I have to talk about Reed and his family first. Wow! Reed! Not only him but his brothers... it was weird how everyone was on board with Bria almost from the first second they saw her. Maybe because Chris felt so comfortable with her from the start. I am not sure but there was some kind of a connection. Reed didn't even hesitate in having Bria be his

Breaking the Cycle by Megan Lowe is Book 1 in the Rocking Racers Series. I can only hope that there will be 7 or 8 additional books that follow the Ryan family and friends through racing, romance and adventures. Reed Ryan is one of a whole bunch of good looking Ryan Brothers. Counting on my fingers there are Parker, Reed, Liam, Maverick and Jackson – that makes 5. There is also the father, grandfather and Parker’s son Chris who is an adorable 3 year old. The Ryan Brothers are cycle racers; Motoc ...more

Breaking the Cycle by Megan Lowe was a very fast paced read. The first book in this series and I can't wait for more from the Ryan Family!!
Bria visits the diner across the street from work quite often. On one particular night she's greeted by a young little boy named Christian and his Uncle Reed. When a fight breaks out in the kitchen, Bria keeps little Christian safe, which is rare since he doesn't take to women very well. Going through this ordeal opens

Breaking the Cycle by Megan Lowe is an unbelievably fun romance. Breaking the Cycle is the first book in the Rocking Racers series but does not have a cliffhanger. The story introduces you to a cast of characters in the Ryan family. The family is all good looking men but unfortunately there is a dark cloud that hangs over the men in the family when they fall in love. The men fall in love but tragedy always seems to affect the women in their life.

This book was a good story about insta-love. It happens quickly for Reed and Bria. She is trying to get dinner and the next minute she is dating Reed. They have a lot happen during their short time together but love is the main the thing that is represented.

The author did a great job telling their story. You get to know the family, the history, and lots of yummy scenes.

I loved the epilogue, I am a sucker for the ending to show us where the couple ends up. If you love sports, romance, and laugh
