Rachel Blaufeld takes us back to Hafton University albeit briefly, for a tale of forbidden love, second-chances, and untold secrets.

I am going to be honest and say that although I read Break Point in pretty much one sitting, and didn’t struggle with it one bit, for me this isn’t the best book I have read by the author. I am a huge fan of her work, and everything prior to this that I have read has been five stars, but there was just a little something off with the pac

I couldn't get enough of this brilliant

I was dying to read this book. I luvd it as soon as I started. I read it in one sitting. The story is about Jules and Drew. Jules has had a hard time. Things didn't go well in her last school. So she had to leave to start a fresh life. Jules is a great tennis player and she got into a great tennis program. This is where she meets the very hot Coach King. Straight away she can feel the attraction towards him.
Not planning to read.

Rachel Blaufeld always manages to provide an angsty and entertaining sports romance story. My thing isn't typically contrived angst resulting from a heroine who has insecurities and hang ups she refuses to admit or accept but Blaufeld finds unique ways to compound and humanize those issues to fully hold my attention. With Break Point we meet a young woman who falls for her tennis coach stretching l

You’re not just the prize. Your everything. And I want it.

I love a good forbidden romance so when I saw this story, I immediately jumped on it. Who doesn’t love a student/teacher romance every once in a while? I know I do and I couldn’t wait to see how Drew and Jule’s story unfolded.

Being one of the best tennis players at her school, Juliette Smith is on top of her game. Or at least she’s trying to be. When she meets her new coach, there’s an immediate attraction between th

Rachel Blaufeld is a queen of a sexy romance and when I am in the mood for an angsty story with some incredibly hot moments she is an author I go to. I instantly fell for Drew, he has a chemistry that pulls you in right from the start. My heart ached for the pain Jules had gone through and desperately wanted their love to be easy, but nothing worth it ever is.

Juliette “Jules” Smith is twenty and about to start a new college. She’s a tennis sensation and has a bright future ahead of her. Only she’s still running from her past. Her teammates at her last school did a terrible thing. She still hasn’t been able to move on from it. She just wants to go to school, play tennis and blend in the crowd. Her mother is obsessed with Jules’ tennis abilities. That and her dead husband. Jules only exist for her talent. She’s on a tennis scholarshi

Break Point is a tale of forbidden romance. A tale of two people who shouldn't be together, but just can't resist each other. Even more than this, it is a tale of what happens when that love combusts, leaving devastation in its wake, and the redemptive road one must take in order to reclaim what has been lost.

This story follows Jules, a tennis star, and her coach, Drew. From the moment they meet, their is instantaneous attraction. The physical d

Life can absolutely feel like a tennis match sometimes; with its ups and downs, risky plays, and must win moments, even the best tennis players can be schooled because the ultimate ace doesn’t happen on the court and regardless of how much practice and skill one may have, there are times when the impossible happens and s/he ends up losing so much more than just one match.

Rachel Blaufeld does it again with her newest novel, Break Point. She has a way of writing beautifully broken characters that I instantly fall in love with.

Something naughty and oh-so-right was simmering in him, just beneath the surface, clamoring to get out.”

Rachel Blaufeld does not disappoint with this novel. Break Point is sensually forbidden while still tugging at your heartstrings. Blaufeld has a way with words that always immerse me into the story. I dive head first and drown in her writing. I absolutely love it. Break Point offers a second chance at love and life. It is more than a romance, but a story about family and setting roots.

Blaufeld touches a topic in this story that I don't always enjoy in my romances, but she delivered it so flawle

I have been avoiding writing this review because I am in denial that I finished the book and Jules and Drew aren't in my life anymore! I honestly don't know how Blaufeld creates these characters that are so real and so human. At times, I hated Jules and was frustrated with her and Drew...but I knew that I still wanted to keep reading. That just makes me think of them as real people who I could know! I loved this story as it touched on tough and challenging topics and was true to them and

Yes, tissues. Make sure to have a box on hand because this is one hell of an emotional ride. I'm still getting teary just thinking about it all as I write this review. Holy heck, what have you done to me, Ms. Blaufeld. I'm a mess. My chest is still achy from the angst of it all.
It wasn't all tears though. You have Drew King. Yes, Drew. Hmmm....Drew. *sighs* He is swoon-worthy and sexy and the newest member to my BBF list.

I came across Break Point in the Hot for Teacher Anthology: Nineteen Stories Filled with Love and Lust and it was one of my favorites stories of the bunch until I hit the place where it said:

“Part Two of Drew and Juliette’s story is coming soon”

My immediate reaction was:

How soon is this? Will soon be next week? Because I think that’s pretty much all the time I can wait for it to be out before going into an anxiety attack.

I typically do not like Teacher/Student romances but I enjoy reading Rachel Blaufeld so took a chance on this and I'm glad I did.
This is the story of Andrew (Drew) King and Juliette (Jules) Smith. Jules is a college tennis phenom and Drew is her coach (she student/he "teacher"). This romance had it all: Insta love, angst, sadness, life rebuilding, romance, secrets and miscommunication and the teacher/student connection was not "gross" due to age difference.

Cliffhangers aren’t my friend so I’m glad I got to read the completed full version. Break Point wasn’t anything I expected but was everything I look for in a romance.

This was a forbidden romance filled with angst, heartbreak, redemption and love. Rachel wrote a beautifully story that pulled you in and kept you wanting more. I’m so glad this was turned into a full novel because I know a novella wouldn’t have been enough.
