The Bonds We Break
When I was taken...it changed me.
Once, I was the life of the party.
I told myself that I was okay. I almost believed it, until the day I was forced to face my past and my nightmare came to life.
Now the Four are the only ones I can turn to, and Cassius Drummond has made it his personal mission to help me out.
No matter how much I tell ...more

The heroine: Jessa - In previous books she was the Queen B at Alstone High School and Alstone College. Only ever worried about keeping her status and having everyone want to be her. Until Caiden fell in love with Winter and used her to make Winter Jealous. Jessa wasn’t very nice to Winter, but Caiden did use her and because of that his Stepmother had he ...more
the fallen queen bee... the way my heart hurt for her. i am not even kidding that i teared up a few times at her devastation, loneliness and sadness. she truly had no one in her corner and it made me really resent some of the characters id previously come to love.
i mean, everyone was so mean to her, like fuck off. yeahhhh, she was mean in the previous books but not like y’all were saints either🤷🏻♀️ and she’d been through so much trauma— getting dragged ...more

It was a pleasant surprise that Becca matched Cass with Jessa. I love Cass from the start of series & here, came to love Jessa too! DEVOURED this book in 5hrs.
NOTE: This is a Standalone, but It's BEST READ i ...more
It was SO nice to be back with The Four again! I've missed this group of friends so much.
There is something very special about their friendship. They are brothers and fiercely protective of the ones they love. If you're in their tight group, consider yourself a friend for life.
Get on their bad side and they will rain down hell on you.
Cassius was everything! I adored getting to know him in the first 3 books. He is the fun playboy. Always smiling and making things light when they are ...more
Can’t believe I left this sitting in my kindle for so long.
I loved being back in this world with these characters. Cassius is sweet and hot and Jessa turned herself around and found forgiveness and acceptance.
The opening and closing blowjob remark … well damn 😆😆😆
Can’t wait to get my hands on the books for Zayde, Creed, and Austin 🤗
"All the best love stories start with an epic bl*wj*b..." (LOL)
Who would have thought that Cassius Drummond, the crazy manwhore and dedicated player, would fall and how deeply will fall!!!!
But the real surprise in here is for which girl Cassius had fallen!!!
For the bitch herself!!!! Jessa De Witt!!! One of the villains in Winter and Cade's story!!!
Wow!!! Just wow!!! Becca did the unthinkable and look how perfect it turned out!!!
This couple was s ...more
This book is poorly constructed, the scenes are short with no development at all, and no explanation at all, there is a scene that could have been deepened and what did Becca do? She let it go. The characters are also poorly built, I didn't feel a connection with jessa much less with cassius which was the worst th ...more
The Bonds We Break is Cassius story and I’ve been anticipating it since his character was first introduced!!
Cassius was honestly such a memorable and intriguing side character in the previous books of the series so finally having his pov was exciting to read and dive into.
Cassius and Jessa have a strong bond that developed so well along the story. Her character really intrigued me because of certain actions that were taken in the previous books but I’m so prou ...more
I'm pretty sure none of us were thinking, "I sure do hope Jessa gets a happy ending," after reading Caiden and Winter’s story. I'm also pretty sure most of us were doubting this story when Becca Steele revealed she was pairing Jessa with CASSIUS! But guess what! Becca made it work!
See, in order for Jessa to be redeemable, she had to fall off her high horse and she did so by gett ...more
Cassius Drummond is the jokester in The Four, always looking for ways to have fun, flirt or lighten the mood. I’m really glad that all of that comes through in this book and so much more - we get to see ...more
Becca Steele has done it again. The Four, along with their significant others, made this book. A part of that group is Cassius and Jessa. Their storyline is emotional, temperamental, loving, and downright steamy, so don’t forget your fan! The Bonds We Break is full of everything. Mystery, intrigue, fear, anxiety, tenuous love to unbreakable bonds. A five-star read!!
As much as we know that Cass is the true lead in this book, I believe we need to take a step back and look at Jessa. If you have rea...more
Ahh Cassius, I knew I was going to love him 🥰 Him and Zayde have been my favourite characters throughout the series so I was excited to get his story! I was kind of hoping he would have some darkness hiding behind his happy, jokester facade but he is legit just a nice guy 🤣 Wh ...more
If you love frenemies to lovers, college romances with some suspense then this is the book for you.
It’s book 5 in the Four series and can be read as a standalone but will be enjoyed better if you read the previous books first.
Cassius Drummond, what can I say. This guy has been a secret favourite (calm down Z, you are still my number 1) drawing me in with his witty banter and hilarious antics. We all know though, the guy that uses humour to cover up ...more
My heart went through all the emotions for Jessa. Originally I HATED her in the first couple of books because of how she treated Winter but after all the crap that took place your heart couldn’t help but feel some sort of sympathy for her.
My issues were I wasn’t really captivated by this story. The connection between these characters felt rushed. I wish I would have seen more of the actual relationship grow.
A few of the elements of the story rubbed me t ...more

Our favorite Four are back and this time it’s all about Cassius and Jessa. Thankfully we still get plenty of all our other favs in this book. I love Cass and have been waiting for his story. I knew there was something special about the ladies man and his signature sexy smirk. And we all remember Jessa DeWitt...the girl you couldn’t help but love to hate. I will admit I was a bit skeptical when I found o ...more

"You're Cassius Drummond."
"I am. How did you know?"
"Your reputation precedes you."
I've been in love with Cassius since his first appearance in the series, he was always my favorite and I am so pleased to say I love him even more after his book. I think he was the best part of the story, his personality and humor are so charming I could read him all day.
About our heroine...I liked Jessa, she's very different from the first books and shows good development. She and Cassius make a power duo wi ...more
I was not prepared for this book. When I heard that Jessa was going to be the heroine after all the shit that she had put the four through in the previous ones, I was so excited to see where Becca would take this.
This book pulled at every single emotion. You would be laughing your head off at Cass's hilarity and the next your heartstrings are being pulled ...more
In true Becca Steele fashion, she writes the most perfect story with the most sexy hero and heroine who will make you fall in love with the story and make you wish for more.
This book had me hooked from page one and Cass has become my number one (sorry Caiden).
This story has a little bit of everything. Friendship, action, steam, suspense, angst, some very entertaining moments and a love story that honestly left me wanting more and more.
The love choice for Cassius interest took me by surprise, an ...more
This is the fifth book in The Four Series and can be read as a standalone. However, I would recommend reading the previous books since the stories are interconnected.
I absolutely love Becca’s books! I was hooked from the very beginning and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. I loved the relationship that bloomed between Cassius and Jessa. Thei ...more
I'm not going to go into details or name names since the blurb left it out (if you like spoilers other reviews have the name), but I will say that this was a brilliant redemption story in more ways than one, and I love how all of then grew in this book.
Definitely a good addition to the series.
You meet the heroine Jessa in the previous books where she wasn’t the nicest to put it in a nice way.
But! I decided to go against what I wanted and still read it. While It took me a minute by the end you could see Cassius and Jessa were made for each other. Becca once again blew it out of the water with this book.
When she’s not writing, you can usually find her reading or watching Netflix. Failing that, she’ll be online hunting for memes, or wasting time making her 500th Spotify playlist.
