Two things I love are the company I built from the ground up and women, and not particularly in that order.
When I see something I want, I get it, whether it’s a new client or a wild night in the sack.
Women flock to my stock, and ladies, that’s not all they enjoy.
I’m not labeled as one of Denver’s top playboys for nothing.
I’m damn good-looking, my pockets are deep, and my

I don’t even know if I like it. Usually a book makes you feel something, whether it’s good or bad, but this book left me feeling...well, absolutely nothing.

Broken Boundaries by T.C. Matson a five-star read that will break you. This is the first book in the Debonair series and what a kick off to the series, I knew that T.C. Matson wrote good fighting men, but she writes men in suits that will melt everything about you, Easton Langley was a man who you could see on the outside was a man who liked to work hard and play harder, and never get burned by anyone but as we get deeper into his story we start to understand why he is like that, why he doesn’t ...more

4.5 stars

Because I am seriously not into delayed gratification. I loved that this wasn’t your typical romance where the girl begs and the girl chases ohhhhh no.... it was a nice change of pace having the guy wanting to work for it until the end. Let me just throw out there that every man has a “Katelyn” the crazy bitch that won’t take no for an answer. I really loved the spin on a book I thought I already knew the end of. It was absolutely refreshing.

Wow, Y'all. Broken Boundaries is just WOW!!! I learned of T.C. Matson from social media. I've not previously read T.C.'s work but I am not going to lie, I am a cover whore and this cover is pretty damn awesome. So then I read the blurb and I requested to review this book through my blog...Spellbound Stories. I was just blown away. The story sucked me in from the get go. Easton Langley is a dirty talking manwhore and once he sets his sights on Zoey Campbell, well...Readers should really prepare

I love the forbidden office romance stories. I loved Easton and Zoey. They had Awesome chemistry. I loved their individual personalities,their flirtyness,and their attempt to fight their attraction. This is a really cute,sexy story. I loved it!
Yeah, I had to dnf this at about 45% because I really, really, didn't want the heroine to get the guy.

Never a good feeling to inspire in a reader at the start of a 'romance' novel.

I don't know what the author's problem is, but it's clear from their writing that they fear women that are confident and sure in their own sexuality, because apparently if you dress even a little bit sexy, you're a whore and a slut! The amount of slut shamming in this is ridiculous!

Quoting the heroine:

I'm such a huge fan of office romances and Broken Boundaries is one I really loved this would be the first book I've read by T.C Matson and it wont be my last especially in the Debonair series . It's always awesome to get both point of views and to know what the characters are thinking and doing instead of being put in the questioning game which frustrates me to no end . Right from the start these two feel the sexual tension but don't act on it until it reaches a point of no return , Easton and ...more

4.5 stars... ALMOST 5!!!

It’s rare that I read a book from beginning to end without a single break, and even more rare that I award a trope-filled book with such a high rating.

That’s just some context so you’ll know I mean it when I say — I LOVED this book. It ticks all the “trope” boxes without anything really “different”… but OOH! It does it so, so well.

Breaking all the rules never looked so good. This is a brilliant start to the Debonair series.

Easton Langley is a notorious playboy and his reputation goes before him especially with women he’s never seen with the same woman twice and that is how he likes it no strings and no attachments has suited him for the past few years. The only thing that has mattered to him was building his business and playing hard. That is until Zoey walks in to his office and announces that she is his new assistant
There is so much to love and enjoy with this book! First, I love that the author doesn't go with convential names, its refreshing and adds a layer of intrigue to the characters. Easton is a man who is more than his past, regardless of what is said around him. He works harder than anyone, and has closed himself off to love. A little tumble in the jumble of life is what he's after. His life is easier that way he thinks.

Zoey has a sweet, shy and tender side that adds to her sassy side. She too has

Broken Boundaries was a great start to The Debonair Series which is new, and I absolutely LOVED it! Easton Langley is a successful multi millionaire businessman with a manwhore rep who has rules which he lives by, and his biggest rule is; you don't mix business with pleasure. That's never been an issues until Zoey Campbell was promoted to his new assistant. She is confident that she can handle him, plus she won't let anything happen so no one will believe that she got the job because she slept ...more

5 “Rule Breaking” Stars

Holy hotness! I want to break allllll the rules with Easton Langley!

I am in LOVE with this new series. Matson is known for her cocky fighters, but I love that she is crossing over into new territory. This is one office romance you don’t want to miss out on. Easton Langley is one of Denver’s biggest playboys, works hard and plays even harder. But when his new assistant, Zoey Campbell, walks in, even he is considering breaking his cardinal rule...don’t sleep with employees.

TC Matson has done it again; she has left me in love with yet another one of her male characters. Broken Boundaries was not just about finding love, it was about finding yourself, and about learning to let go and enjoy life.

We meet these two characters who are so different but at the same time they are so much alike. Easton is a guy who has his life planned out; he made his business grow and is determine to live life like he wants. He lives for work and at night he just does one time stand. He

Easton and Zoey are just a fun read; An office romance combined with an instant attraction.
One of the things that I enjoyed about this story was the fact that even though there was an instant attraction, acting on it was delayed. This gave our characters a chance to get to know each other and the reader the sense that the developing relationship might have staying power.
As much as I liked this story, I did have some mixed feelings about Zoey. There were times that she came across as

Zoey and Easton are blurring the lines and it feels so good. Zoey knew one thing growing up, while she respected her hardworking parents, she wanted more out of life than could be found in a tiny town in Nebraska. She risked a lot by upping stakes and moving to Denver after securing a part time secretarial job at Langley Security but it's paying off now that she's been promoted to be none other than Easton Langley’s secretary. She is going knock his socks off and try her hardest to ignore his ...more

I really had no expectations of this book and no clue what it was really about. I have read other books by T.C. Matson and enjoyed them. Once again, I was not disappointed. Unfortunately, I was often in trouble of reading instead of doing other things, like laundry. It was worth it!

Zoey and Easton's story was perfect. An office romance with explosive chemistry as two people try to remain professional when all they want is each other. There were several times I found myself laughing or smiling

A breath of fresh air:)

Zoey Campbell just landed a most coveted job as the secretary/assistant to the CEO of Langley Security, Easton Langley. With drool worthy good looks and a reputation that proceeds him, Easton can have his pick of any woman in Denver so why would he ever look twice at her. At least that's what Zoey tells herself everyday at work in order to keep from falling under his spell. But when a man like Easton sets his sights on something there is no stopping him from getting it.

This was my first book by TC Matson and Broken Boundaries makes me wonder how that is. The first book in the Debonair Series. Easton is a gorgeous multimillionaire who run his own business and who is very much a man whore but one that has a strict set of rules. He never ever mixes business with pleasure and has never and will never date an employee. He has lost his old assistant and needs a new asap for goodness sake he has to answer his phone himself the horror! Zoey has worked for Easton ...more

OMG, I read an advanced copy of this book and it was amazing! TC Matson has done it again, another brilliant and wonderful cast of characters and beginning to what looks to be a great new series. Zoey is so well written, snarky, sarcastic, funny as hell, and simply beautiful. Easton Langley is the consummate alpha male, so sexy you just want to drool and slap his face, yet you know he's a true gentleman under all that bluff and bluster. He's strong and gentle and so far gone for Zoey from day ...more

What a great book! So many things I love in a story a sexy CEO/ Millionaire, a strong female, a "forbidden romance" and watching a playboy fall. Those together made a romance story I couldn't put down.
Easton and Zoey were a couple that shouldn't happen Boss and Assistant a big No No! Add in both of their insecurities and you have more reasons it won't work. But damn I wanted them together!! They had undeniable chemistry and when together HOLY HOTNESS!

Perfect mix of heat and sweet
TC Matson weaves just the right amount of angst, heat, and sweet. She’s right, “you dream in reality when you pick up a book.” She does that for me, she makes me dream! Zoey is not his usual type but she intrigues him. Easton is not the type of man she into. Sure he’s sexy and hot but he has way too much past for her. He’s always thinking about what happened the last time he let some in. TC’s writing had me turning the pages. I didn’t want to put this book down. I am

This is one of those books you don’t want to put down to sleep cause you might miss something. Zoey worked her butt off to be the assistant to the gorgeous owner Easton but she refuses to be unprofessional in any way and lose her job. Easton is a playboy but something about Zoey makes him want to be a better man and date but Zoey isn’t going for it even though she would love to. Zoey and Easton are a perfect match but they both have preconceived ideas of what the other is like and this book was ...more
