Atticus Creed saved my life. His voice talked me down. His lyrics stripped me bare. His tattoos against my hidden scars made me feel beautiful. In turn, I wrecked him with a love that exposed his soul and lies that called to his vilest demons.

We were innocent then.

I’m not a broken girl anymore. Now I’m the woman who reigns over the corrupt record label he abandoned, and he

Breakdown is Aly Zigada's debut novel, but if I didn't know that information going into it, there is no way in hell I would believe that to be true. Though her writing is that of a more seasoned author, it's not the primary reason I made the aforementioned statement. My surprise has more to do with the content of the novel than how it was written. Aly didn't play it safe with this one at all, and it was fucking refreshing! I gave a whole extra star for that alone! With the way authors can be

OMFG One look at the cover, then the synopsis, then some sneak peaks of the reviews and before I can get my stalking mode in gear to hunt down this newbie author an arc arrives on my kindle!! In my freaking happy place!!

“When you summon Atticus Creed back to hell, be prepared to get singed. This is a dangerous game. I know it. Ask me if I give a fuck".

Wow…. I’m at a loss for words right now because if I’m being honest, I was not expecting this kind of story and the depth of it. As I sit here and write this, I still cannot believe that this is Aly Zigada's debut book!! She held nothing back and her writing is down right phenomenal.

Gritty, unapologetic, and positively filthy! Breakdown rushes through your veins—electric and entertaining—until you’re wickedly addicted to this unpredictable love story! This isn’t just a romance between two people. It’s a dark, twisted, not-so-fair tale of lies, lust, deceit, and absolute obsession of Perversion—a record company, a legacy, a dirty prize worth billions. Love is a casualty. Hate is a battle wound. The characters are flawed, but they’re brilliantly written in such a way you root ...more

Dangerous Love

“Evil was powerful, but love was dangerous.”


For a debut effort this is surprisingly well done. The author drops you in the middle of a character’s breakdown which pulls you into a story that centers around a couple who lost each other to their demons and ambitions. The language is real and gritty. The emotions of the main characters are nuanced well throughout the story. The arc in the development of the characters is impressive. The pacing is spot on. The novel flows even though

I DNF-ed the book at 41%.

I guess there are a couple of things that made me DNF Breakdown.
1. Style of writing. I couldn't concentrate.
Suffice to say that the entire time I was reading the book, I was starching my head cause I was zoning out or feeling really 'confused'.
I buddy-read this book with my friend and I'll tell you what I told her. You need patience to read this book.
2. The prologue is long...which I don't mind. But the moment chapter 1 stared I realised that the story is about someone

I'm a little taken back by this book if I am honest. She's a new author and I am certainly not one to normally leave my comfort zone and explore brand new authors and their first book, but I saw the blurb to this and the cover and was intrigued and I'm so glad I took a chance. I think I may have found a new author to... stalk... I mean follow!!

I remember back when I first started reading Romance. There were so many genres within the umbrella of romance, I almost became dizzy at first. I would try one type and fall hard for that...then see something totally different and then gravitate to that. I was never at a loss for there was always something to pique my interest.

There was a period when I fell into the Biker types. It was during the Sons of Anarchy reigning supreme and the author, Madeline

That cover? Instant horny vibes.
The blurb? Color me intrigued.
The abundance of 5-star reviews? Reading this should be a no-brainer.

And yet...
I didn't like it. I couldn't get past Imogen's character. She obliterated any hope I had within the first chapter. Rather than continue to read and fall even further into feelings of disgust and hate, I'll pass the gauntlet to someone else. I'm thrilled that others read and loved this book. I have a feeling it's more of a 'me' thing instead of anything agai

No matter how many years have gone by Sophie is still in love with Atticus. Despite the fact that he blamed her for something that happened in the past. All she needs is a chance to explain herself to him.

After being out of the music industry for the past six years, Atticus Creed is back! He was convinced by his sister, Imogen, to claim what is rightfully theirs -- the Perversion Records. The company is in dire straits at the moment and Atticus can provide that boost not only because h

I very rarely read books by new authors. I have my go-to favorites and that usually about does it. But there was something about this one that called to me. This is Aly's debut book but it doesn't feel like a debut. This was a heavy punch in the gut type of book that had me all wrapped up in drama, messed up feelings, terrible behavior and corrupt world of the music industry.

There was a lot going on in this book, it is told in multiple POVs, mixed with past and present and all of the chara

The Prologue had me super intrigued, I could tell from there that this book was gonna be deep and filled with all the scandal, lies and deceit of the music industry and the glamour life surrounding it. But when the prologue ended and the first chapter began I was mad and it put me off because hello there POV change. Don't get me wrong I love books that are dual POVs but I don't in fact enjoy books that are multiple POV and that's what I was surprised with. And the worst thi

4.5 brilliant stars for this debut novel by this new for me author. I will definitely read more and look forward to book two in the Perversion series because I’m already addicted.

There is no way you can be prepared for the kind of fucked up these characters are and there is no warning before you’re caught up in a web of sinful perversion and your consequent need for more, nor will you be able to explain because you want more, that’s how good this author is.

The story focuses on Atticus and Sophi

Wow. What a debut novel. This was a brilliant read.

This book is everything I love that I shouldn’t. Don’t read any reviews...just read the book. This book needs to be read and talked about so much.

This is a phenomenal debut read. It’s books like this that keeps me blogging, the surprise reaction of reading a book that blows your mind. Take heed this book isn’t for everyone.
I’m so looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.

When I started reading Breakdown by Aly Zigada, I have to be honest, I was not liking it due to a specific character. It disappointed me because I was really looking forward to this novel. At first, I wasn't into it for the first 2 to 3 chapters. As the story progressed and Atticus was introduced, the book blossomed and exploded in the best way possible.

Atticus Creed's voice had reached through radio waves to take hold of me when I was thirteen. I'd loved him before I met him. Before sex. Befo

Where do I even begin with this review! Damn Aly Zigada who the hell are you?? Perversion is the perfect title for this book. You will be sucked into hell and try to claw your way out with these characters. Right from the start I was hooked. I will say it’s a bit long, but honestly it needs to be because of it wasn’t done that way, I don’t know if I would have felt satisfied with everything.

Perversion is more than about a family’s record company. It’s a story about enemies, family, greed, legac

"Good and bad walk together. You can't be good if you don't deal with the bad. You can't beat the devil if you don't play his game."

I took a chance on a new author because the cover grabbed my attention and then the synopsis closed the deal. I am drawn to music-themed stories and broken characters and that's what I went into this expecting. I got a lot more than that, but I'm not sure exactly how to explain it. Honestly, I read the entire Prologue in a state of WTF?

His poison was my elixir. His depravity fit mine like puzzle pieces.

I was not ready for Breakdown by Aly Zigada. This beautifully messed up and tragically twisted story grabbed my heart in it's raw, painful and toxic hands. And my heart broke like it never had. This is absolutely impossible for me to express my emotions about this raw, dark and insane piece of mindblowing writing.

I heard so many great things about this book, I just had to check it out. I really enjoyed it. Breakdown is a fabulous debut novel. It’s unique and twisty. I thought it might be darker, but it definitely has some dark themes and moments. I would say it’s more gritty. Fucking filthy, in fact. And I. Loved. It.
So I’m not really big on reading blurbs. For this book, I had some trusted fellow blogger friends that recommended it, and that was enough for me to want to give this new author a shot. Plu

"That's how toxic and violently pure my love for her was. It had withstood six years of distance and hatred. It wasn't patient or kind; it was selfish and punishing."

Raw, gritty, real, and genius!! The way this was put together with multiple POV, written like a tragic Southern gothic, decadent, addictive, and purely phenomenal, this Author has a fan for LIFE. Swirling with tragedy, inner wounds bleeding all over the pages, twisted with an underworld that many aren't witness to, I couldn't put it

I’m coming out of my review hiatus because this book is just too damn good to not talk about. To not share. To not tell the brave to add this to your TBR lists.

To say I “loved” this book is a dramatic understatement. This book is hard. It’s emotional. It’s dirty. It’s dark It’s sex. It’s sexy. It’s romantic. It’s revenge. It’s lies. It’s manipulation.

It’s for the unashamed.

It is for those that want to be stripped bare into the dirty world of celebrities and music culture.
