Overview

He spent years selling his body, having sex with women for money. He could please them better than anyone else.

Now he has only one woman to please.

He knows what to do with her body. He wants her, needs her, takes her--until she can't take any more.

But what they have is so much more than bodies moving together. He loves her, loves her, loves her.

He still doesn't always know how.

Breaking is an erotic novella (21,000 words) that can be read as a standalone, although it features characters from Escorted. It isn't a retelling, but rather a separate story that takes place a few months after the last scene of Escorted.

    Breaking by Claire Kent

    **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley**

    This is the story of Ander and Lori and is told in the POV of Ander. I found it quite difficult to connect with this book and found myself getting frustrated with this big secret that was making Ander behave the way he was.

    For me there was too much mystery surrounding Ander’s mental state and as the book was about his relationship with Lori being affected by whatever he was processing internally, it was really difficult for me to achieve a connection with the characters or the book. I got quite frustrated the fact that book held back on Ander’s issues. I wanted to as least have some insight as to how he was behaving the way he was. With all the angst that was drummed up I was greatly let down when it came out what the issue was.

    I’m not saying that this is a bad book, it just didn’t do it for me at all and the only reason I finished it was because it was a short book. Although the storyline could be why it’s a short story rather than a novel.

    Recommend.

    I definitely recommend reading this after ESCORTED. I was glad there was more to their story. I didn't feel the ending to ESCORTED was enough.
    S.A.K.

    Good

    This should be read after Escorted to get any enjoyment out of this book! Having said that I am a little disappointed. I feel like this wasnt a real ending to their story. I would have liked more sight into their future. All in all I love this couple so good read.

    Closure

    This novella provided closure on Ander's and his dad relationship. It also revealed a more vulnerable Ander.

    3.5 Stats. Quick read not a sequel, thank goodness!!! But focused on Ander's broken past issues... Still love both Lori and Ander's characters and their chemistry.

    3.5 stars

    After reading (and loving) "Escorted," I was looking forward to getting inside Ander's head and understanding him better. Unfortunately, he spends so much of this novella hiding fom his own emotions that he never stops coming off as guarded. I think the story would have benefitted from a little less time spent between the sheets and a little more time exploring how Ander's pain was affecting him in other ways. On the positive side, Ander and Lori are still adorable together, their love for each other feels real, and this story is still worth reading for fans of "Escorted."

    I received this ebook from Netgalley and Claire Kent in exchange

    I received this ebook from Netgalley and Claire Kent in exchange for an honest review.

    I liked "Escorted". My main complaint, in that story, was that I wanted to hear more from Ander's point of view. Some of what he and Lori when through was difficult to read and frustrated me because I didn't know what he was thinking and/or feeling.

    Having Ander's voice is what I liked best about "Breaking". I very much enjoyed seeing them together and happy. I am always glad to revisit my couples

    On the other hand, I did not feel there was much depth or point to this Novella. It was mostly erotica. For me, it was missing something. So I was a little disappointed

    So so

    Too much of "this" and not enough of that. Thought i'd give this book a try despite the iffy reviews. I was rather dissapointed at how weak this series. Ended. I really think that this book was'nt even nessecery since it was two thirds Ander and Lori having sex which actually got old and i ended up skipping through because i wanted to get on with the story which was so so.... oh well.....At least i wasn't out alot of money. I'll miss Ander all the same. Sweet guy.

    Kent does a good job of rolling the sex scenes and cute banter into this short story that follows the events of ESCORTED. ~ Under the Covers

    This short novella returns to Ander and Lori that spans about three days or so and is told from Ander’s POV. Kent does a good job of rolling the sex scenes and cute banter into this short story that follows the events of ESCORTED.

    I thought it was a treat to be able to read from Ander’s POV and seeing the inner workings of his mind. Throughout the story, you get the sense that he is holding something from Lori. But when that secret is revealed, I didn’t understand why it needed to be kept a secret. However, given Ander’s past and what he has already dealt with, I could forgive that.

    Though the secret turned out not to be a big deal as I expected, Kent still achieves what I thinks he meant to with this novella. BREAKING is a story that displays Ander and Lori as they begin to heal and go off on their journey of life together.

    I enjoyed this short story about Lori and Ander. I fell in love

    I enjoyed this short story about Lori and Ander. I fell in love with them in Escorted and will read anything about them!!! My only wish is that it had been a full length book instead but Claire did an amazing job of putting it all together and leaving me feeling as satisfied as a full length book. My only hope is that there will be more books in the future to make this a series. I am a Claire Kent fan now though and look forward to see what she has in store for us. If you have read Escorted then make sure you follow up with this little jewel!! I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley for an honest review.
