The gripping, steamy follow up to the bestselling forbidden romance, Wanting Mr. Cane...

I was left broken, my heart beating a little bit harder in order to survive. I'd tried picking up the pieces, but when it came to Cane, it was hard to let go.
The way we touched was special and we promised to never forget one another. I had him right in the palm of my hand--thought

➳When forbidden strikes again, Shanora Williams knows how to expertly write it in an enticing romance novel filled with lots of drama making you crave more...

➳I have encountered yet again another author that has slowly captivated and SLAYED my heart with their writing. Shanora Williams somehow, in some wicked way has put herself in a special place in my heart for making me love her writing more and more every time she releases something new. I am not the biggest fan of stories with cliffhang

So good!!

I love Cane and Kandy together. In this book you can see how much Kandy has matured. She’s 19 now, but has a good head on her shoulders. They still have to fight for people to accept their love but in the end they know that what matters is that they are happy.

We get to meet some people in this book that either you love or hate. Kelly is still crazy and that cliffhanger ending stole my breath! I can’t wait for part 3 in September.

I can’t get enough of Cane and Kandy. I hope they get t

Ok. wow. This book picks up directly from where Wanting Mr Cane left off so if you haven't read that yet and this series appeals to you then step away from the review because this review is spoiler central about book 1 in the Cane series.

This book is a lot darker than Wanting Mr Cane and it deals with some intense subjects such as child and spousal abuse (which was briefly covered in Wanting Mr Cane but becomes more relevant in Breaking Mr Cane), drug and alcohol abuse and mental health issues.

5 + Stars!!

I am absolutely loving this series!! It is actually becoming a top favorite. As much as I loved the first book I might just love this one a little more. This book was actually a pretty emotional read for me and I cried several times. There’s still that forbidden aspect I love so much as well as some angst mixed with some heavy scenes that truly make you feel for them and their situation.
You really see Kandy mature and grow in this book after what she’s had to deal with and go through

Age Gap | Forbidden Romance | Must be read in Order.

Shanora Williams is breaking out some serious twists with this series and I cannot help but devour these books in one sitting. The way they end make me want to immediately start the next one. Good thing this series is already completed. I don't know how readers were able to patiently wait for the next one!

So I am going to sum up books 2-3.5 in this review since I just read them back to back. It's been awhile since I had finished book 1 but I knew I needed to finish the series after I was left reeling from the the first books ending.
I have always been a fan of Shanora Williams and love her style of writing. This series was a little different from what I normally read but I was intrigued after the first book. The storyline is unique and my curiosity had me glued but I dont think its William's best

When love hits you , it doesn’t care about age or color or even if it’ll hurt.


And it hits hard!! Kandy Jennings is infected with love, the same ailment is eating up Quentin Cane alive. They're so far apart, yet just a memory away in their souls. The story is is flowing way past the tragic mark almost into ugly-cry territory. Shanora has dipped her pen in pain & tears, impregnated it with misery and angst. I felt sorry, oh so hurtfully sorry for them. Why couldn't the world leave them alone!!

4.5 "What. The. Hell?" Stars

First and foremost, cliffhangers and I are not friends! I don't know what Shanora is thinking. Honestly, I think she thrives in having her readers be in pain. Shaking my head so damn hard at you Shanora. I can't handle this! I'm raging right now and need a round with a punching bag because I need to let this aggression out. I'm huffing and puffing over here wanting to blow a damn house down and let all this steam ou

Another cliffhanger? No thanks. This was slow enough for me and has turned out into a soap opera. And there will be 4 books? I hoped it was a duet.

Breaking Mr. Cane almost broke me. This book was better than the first and I honestly didn't think Quinton Cane could get better but he sure fucking did! I fell more in love with him and with Kane (should this be their ship name or is there a better one? possibly.).

So so much happened! The book was jam packed with action, twists and turns, betrayals, new characters and so much depth. You get to know so much more about Quinton but still not enough, there will be much more to kn

I don’t know how she does it, but Shanora Williams has given us yet again what she does best in Breaking Mr. Canean excellent and epic sequel to a forbidden romance that could easily be described as even better than the first book; characters we both love and hate; twists and turns that will make your head spin, your gut churn and your blood boil; and a massive cliffhanger that will make you want to pull all your hair out and leave your jaw hanging.

This book captivated me from the very beginning!! I was really looking forward to this book after finishing book 1 and I definitely wasn't disappointed. This book picks up right where the first left off so I didn't feel like i missed out on anything. It was a very intense story and so many things are finally revealed. I couldn't put it down once I began.

This book was given to me at my request and I provided this review voluntarily.

Well hot damn, Kane and Candy still got that fire 🔥 They definitely like to tempt fate. This book kept me on edge through the whole thing with so many secrets, ticking time bombs just waiting to explode. And when it exploded, man was it bad! Can't wait for the next book in this series to see how things play out!

Wow. Wow. Wow! What a wild freaking ride!!! I didn’t think I could hate Kelly anymore than I do and I didn’t think I could love Cane and Kandy anymore either! My emotions were all over the place while reading. I needed to know what happened, constantly being at the edge of my seat. I think my blood pressure sky rocketed! This is one intense read.

Shanora Williams sure knows how to throw a wicked curve ball! The inner turmoil that has separated both Kandy and Cane has reached an all time high. When secrets come to the light, you won't know what hit you!

I absolutely loved the first book, but Breaking Mr. Cane has bewitched me. I have no words to describe how heartbreaking this book was for me to read. This book is so intense and powerful... You could feel the tension rising by the end of the book.

I can't wait for what is in store for us

So, here I am, at the end of the 2nd book. And if I said I loved the first book, well then, I don't know what to say now.
This series is getting better and better. I almost hyperventilated t the end. I can't even think straight.

This book, peeps, this book! I have no words, just exclamation marks. I've told you again and again just how GOOD Shanora Williams is as a writer, and the Cane series is her strongest stuff so far.

First of all I need to rant to Shanora Williams for that cliffhanger for Breaking Mr. Cane. I am a huge mess over it. I want to punch something or someone. I want to kill someone. The urge is real. I was left in a pit with my emotions because of Breaking Mr. Cane. I was left with tears flowing and my stomach up in knots. Gosh, this book ANNIHILATED me. This book mentally destroyed me. Breaking Mr. Cane absolutely laid everything bare. I felt the deep emotions. I felt the love seeping from the pa ...more

One should always be weary of a woman scorned who isn't wrapped too tight. Now Cane and Kandy are dealing with the aftermath of Kelly's vindictiveness. All of their lives have been impacted and repercussions are felt, both far and wide. Separately, Cane and Kandy try to pick of the pieces of their tattered lives while wondering how they can salvage the remains and move on.

Trying on her forced maturity for size, Kandy is determined to immerse herself in her college experience by hanging out with

Picking right up where we left with Wanting Mr. Cane (Cane #1), All heck has broken out and everyone is involved! There’s Blood, there’s a concussion, there’s someone in jail… I don’t know which way to turn!!!

How could love between two be so hard?

I’ve read quiet a few age gap/forbidden romances similar to this and I have to say...this one is the most realistic.

All the drama with parents not being accepting, people being uncomfortable with the older man, younger woman couple, etc is what makes this story different. Most other stories I have read in this genre so far have more fluff to them 😆

What else does this book have??

****Interesting secondary characters? ✔️
****Hot forbidden romance? ✔️
****Hero with a troubled past and family drama? ✔

Shanora Williams you're in trouble!!!!! Giving me another cliffy that had me yelling at my Ipad. Loved the chemistry and genuine emotions we got between Mr Cane & Kandy - could feel their passion. Heat Factor was off the charts & as for the angst - gah!!! Talk about holy plot twists Batman - did not see that one coming - and now you're going to make me wait. Again. You're sooo mean. Definitely recommend.

After the way Wanting Mr. Cane concluded, I was so eager to finally get my hands on Breaking Mr. Cane. Shanora Williams has a way to get you hooked on her stories and this novel blew my mind! I was expecting to love it, but it was even better than I could have wanted! Through sorrow, desire, love, drama, Kandy and Cane’s story continues with everything in place to get you completely addicted!

Shanora Williams brings forth her very best with this continuation in the Cane series! Breaking Mr. Cane picks up where we left off in Wanting Mr. Cane and I was completely taken aback at just how intense a ride this would be. Everything was and is still turned upside down as secrets were revealed which left Cane, Kandy and her parents reeling. I was almost afraid as to what could possibly happen next and if the hurt and the disappointment felt by so many could be resolved.

Shanora clearly likes to torture her readers in the best way possible! I feel so emotionally damaged but I'm also begging for more!

You remember how we last left Kandy and Cane right!? RIGHT!? So we're back to that moment and having to deal with all the ramifications and the consequences of everyone's actions. And while I COMPLETELY understand why Derek did what he did, it broke my heart because I love Cane and Kandy together no matter what anyone says. But we can't always have what we want, can
