Adam is a man used to getting what he wants. And he wants Katelynânaked and often. Willing to stop at nothing to possess her, he relentlessly pursues Kate only to discover that it is she who possesses himâcompletely. Kate quickly realizes that Adam has secrets of his own, secrets dark enough to break the walls she keeps so firmly in place. Passion turns to possession, and Adamâs controlling nature and seductive hands sparks a desire so strong, it destroys her own demons. But when desire turns to addiction, Kate fears that it will rage too hot, and shatter her sanity.
Review : Another reviewer wrote it perfectly …. Quoting : “If the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy and the Crossfire Trilogy made a baby, it would be called Break Me Slowly.” (except the crossfire books are not a triology anymore but that is an angry story for another time) And it would not have been a bad thing really – and I wanted to like the story – but I suddenly catched myself counting the things I read before in one or both of the other books … And after that it was not like reading something I liked anymore – it was more like reading a copy of something I like – if you understand the difference … Maybe it was because I was missing the depth of the main characters – and I could not feel the attraction …. there was nothing that made me feel the development between the two … there were some good minutes and at one point I thought OK I might be onto something – AND maybe another 50 or 100 pages spend on character development would have saved the whole thing but like this – … no … sorry … Its a nice short read but nothing new for people with a full reading list ….
