Overview

Delilah Palmer has always maintained control of her life and outward personality, blocking the truth that’s just below the surface. Using a façade meant to be normal and hide the scars of her childhood, she's made a good life for herself. Becoming a successful lawyer, she is finally free from the tortured past that haunts her daily. Until he comes along and breaks open the cracks.

Nathan Thorne has a haunted past of his own. On the surface, he is personable, extroverted, and loved by everyone; everything Delilah isn't. However, hidden beneath his charming smile is a dark and tormented man that only Delilah has the power to unveil.

Forced into a small office together, they begin to see through each other's masks, and the magnetic attraction ignites an explosive relationship. Their firm, Holloway and Holloway Law, has a strict non-fraternization policy, forcing them to conceal their breach. But despite their efforts, separation becomes impossible, deceptions escalate, and Nathan begins to teeter on the edge of being overtaken by his past demons.

What dark secrets does Nathan harbor that stop him from giving in, and what is it that keeps him from healing and moving forward? And more importantly, where does Delilah fit into his turmoil? Will they be able to accept love and deal with all the trials that develop as their secrets are exposed, or will they fall through the cracks of their pasts and be consumed by all that haunts them?

An exciting new romance, Breach will hook readers from the very beginning. With smoldering romance and captivating erotica, this enthralling story is perfect for all. Using shrouded secrets of the past and a combustible relationship that borders on taboo, this thrilling novel ramps up the tension and romance at every turn.

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - R.E. Hargrave
The journey is filled with passionate explosions of need that will leave you panting and squirming, yet with a breaking heart over their pain and suffering. Everything seems against these star-crossed lovers: their pasts, their almost non existent friendships, and above all, the rules of their employer. They shouldn't be more than friends, but Nathan and Delilah soon discover that brief moments of peace can be theirs if they give in.
Goodreads - Lori Economos
Call me crazy, but I love love love stories about broken and damaged characters with dysfunctional relationships. Breach is a love story filled with raw passion, very dark pasts, secrets, need, healing, and a WHOLE LOT OF DIRTY TALK and WICKED HOT SEX . You may want to keep a fan, bucket of ice, or whatever you need to keep the temperature down handy. It’s dark, sexy, intense, captivating and simply wonderful .

    First impression

    Dislike: $3.99 for 155 pages (total, I don't know the actual reading length). While I knew it ended in a cliff hanger, I bought it thinking it would be fairly long. I find cliffhanger books under 200 pages very frustrating - take the time to complete the story instead of just pushing out a 155 pages quickly.
    Like: overall it was a good book. Once I got past the length I did enjoy the storyline.

    What am I missing?

    Delilah is a closed off lawyer who avoids the courtroom as surely as she avoids her memories of a dark childhood. She’s no good at relationships, in part because her confidence and self-image was shattered during her formative years. So when she can’t deny her attraction to her new office mate, she raises her walls and tries to ward him off with sharp words.

    Nathan is not without his own dark past. As charming and flirty as he comes off with his many admirers, there’s something underneath that isn’t so pretty. His dominant take on sex seems to be what Delilah needs, even if they’re both fighting that realization, & no little non-fraternization policy at the office is going to keep them away from each other.

    Unfortunately, the book started to lose me in the first few chapters, specifically during the first sex scene. While the prude in me thought it was a little early for wall sex, I just figured it was a catalyst for something that would pull me in sooner or later, so I kept reading. And then Nathan opened his mouth. I don’t think it was the dirty talk that ruined it for me. It was simply how far it went before I felt like I knew the characters enough to understand its necessity.

    I recently read a book where the characters had a a lust-hate relationship going from the start. They quickly jumped into sex, didn’t keep the dialog clean or even respectful, & yet had me hooked immediately. When I think about it, it’s because the authors gave me enough insight into their personalities and situation to convince me before it happened that things were going to be messy, rough, & a bit angry. Not only was I fine with it, but I looked forward to it.

    Breach didn’t do that for me. I felt I knew so little of Nathan in the moments before he called Delilah a whore (in the heat of angry sex, that is) that she should have at least slapped him. I’m sure his words were meant to illustrate his dominance/darkness and her wanton need (and probably hint at some of those issues from her childhood), but for me, it just killed the moment. I really didn’t know her well enough to comprehend why she responded to it the way she did. I kept reading, but the more they hooked up, the more I didn’t like either character. Once I realized I wasn’t going to get behind either one of them, it was time to move on to another book.

    The other issue I had was the editing. It wasn’t awful; in fact, it was spot on most of the time. But then the missing commas began to add up, & I found myself noticing little mistakes just enough to distract me from the story. That, & a glaring bit of confusion between a common noun and a proper name that offended me on a personal level kind of did me in.

    A glaring difference between fanfic and original fic is the depth with which the characters must be introduced. Even when fanfic characters are written out of character (compared to the originals), readers go in with a sense of already knowing them. Traits can be mentioned, & personalities can be illustrated, but since we’re reading about characters we already love (or hate), full introductions are rarely necessary. Not so with original fic, & that’s where this book failed to resonate with me. Since I never read this one in its fanfic form, I went in not knowing what to expect, & I didn’t get enough insight to reel me in by the time things got heavy.

    I’m not surprised to see so many glowing reviews from fanfic readers — after all, if they loved

    This story is about two broken people that come together. Delil

    This story is about two broken people that come together. Delilah is working in a law office and putting in a ton of hours because they are short-handed. She is alive but not really living. She is insecure and anti-social because of her upbringing. Then they hire Nathan to work in her tiny office with her. He is drop dead gorgeous but also anti-social. However all the woman in the office flock to him which annoys Delilah to no end but Nathan doesn’t accept any of their offers. Lila (Delilah) knows that Nathan is hiding but doesn’t know from what. They start bantering back and forth and appear to hate each other but there is also sexual tension. One night they are working late and end up having hot wall sex. Lila thinks it was the best sex of her life while Nathan storms out and leaves her there. He doesn’t want to have a relationship with her but they cant stay away from each other. He has demons that he is trying to hide but is slowly letting Lila in. Their sex is very rough and he leaves bruises not because he is trying to hurt her just because he is so passionate.

    I don’t mind dirty talk but not sure I like the names he constantly calls her. They have been together for about four months when Nathan starts to pull away. He decides he cant continue with her and Lila doesn’t take it well. Will they be able to get past both of their demons and learn to love each other? We didn’t learn what is in Nathan’s past but hopefully they will be able to overcome it in the next book of this trilogy.

    I read all three books in the series that are out now. When I started the first book, I almost stopped reading after the first few chapters because it was all sex and not enough storyline for me. Well I'm glad I hung in there because I ended up liking it alot. I got into the characters and had to know what was going to happen with their relatioship. Oh my gosh, their is some serious dirty talk and dirty sex in this book!

    Way too much sex!

    This book has hardly any plot, 90 percent of it is sex scenes. Way over the top!
