Overview

Another scintillating BDSM romance from the author of SANCTUARY and THE DARK GARDEN!

When power play becomes more than just a game…

BDSM. Submission. Spanking…These are the things Skye has always craved, the desires she has never allowed herself to explore. Until now. She thought she was looking for a single experience, something to purge these strange yearnings from her system. Instead she finds a man whose absolute authority and stunning good looks leave her breathless, willing to do anything he asks of her. But only for one night…

Adam has other ideas. Skye could be the perfect submissive once he’s done training her—for someone else. For him, that’s always the way it’s been. But Skye is different. Enticing. Intoxicating. Irresistible. Soon all he can think of is breaking Skye—and keeping her for himself.

~Includes ___ pages of bonus content! Excerpts from five of Eden Bradley’s books, plus added excerpts from authors R.G. Alexander and Robin L. Rotham!

*BREAKING SKYE was originally published in 2006-it has now been rewritten and doubled in length.

    This was too short! That's my major complaint. And I really love

    This was too short! That's my major complaint. And I really loved how real the characters were written to be, I felt sorry for Adam when he was resisting again Skye's influence on his feelings and his overall concept on the training relationship between the two of them. I can't wait to read the other books by Eden Bradley. Definitely intense and steamy from beginning to end, but the biggest thing I liked was that Skye's cousin guided to do research and do lots of research before jumping into something she didn't understand. Research, research, and even more research and learning. :)

    Breaking Skye...and Adam?

    A quick erotic read with romance and love. Skye learns to let go and open up, but so does Adam. It wasn't always easy, but they found thier way to happiness.

    “I was completely taken in by this one from the first page.” ~Under the Covers

    First I’ll just get to the point and say how much I loved Breaking Skye. Novellas aren’t usually my favorite reading length, as the stories are often too short for satisfying character development. I was completely taken in by this one from the first page. While I like BDSM stories that take place in clubs and with experienced players, I really appreciate one where the woman is new to the lifestyle, but not clueless. Skye is a strong, intelligent and independent woman who has harbored submissive desires long enough to finally reach out to someone online. When she meets Adam, a longtime Master, she is captivated from the first moment. Adam trains submissives, but doesn’t become involved with them emotionally. Little does he know that Skye will challenge his boundaries. He can’t help but be inexplicably drawn to her. Their scenes are hot, but about to become hotter if he can’t control his desire for not only her mind, but her body.

    I loved Breaking Skye because I found it to be so believable. Bradley captures the emotions of a new sub perfectly, from the infatuation of the first meeting, to her first time in subspace, to the languid calm that one experiences during aftercare. The actual play is fairly tame, but it goes to show that enjoyment of a story, just like a scene, is not so much about the actions that take place, but how they’re spun together to capture the mind. A simple spanking can be more erotic than the dirtiest sex if done right and this story really delivered for me on that front. Skye’s initial resistance and apprehension, her blatant fear, is spot-on. Adam’s dating life is a bit of a shock to the reader, but also very real life. I loved that the action was in a bedroom, not in a club. No intricate bondage or spectacle sex, just real D/s exploration that rung true. I few more scenes would be awesome Ms. Bradley! I’d love to see these characters again.

    Loved It!

    Skye Ballard is an artist wants nothing more than let go of control for one night. Adam Dunne is just the man she needs, except he wants her for more than one night. Intense physical attraction leads to an amazing adventure into the world of BDSM. Skye wants more; Adam has awakened things inside of her that she didn't even know existed. Both fighting against their past; each asking for things neither are sure they can give. Can Adam and Skye learn to let go of the past so they can move to the future.

    I really enjoyed this novella. Even in such a short story you grow attached to the Skye and Adam. Eden Bradley has such a way with words and she knows her BDSM. I have a tendency to get lost in her stories. You feel every pinch, every spank, and every fiber of the ropes or metal form the chains that so often bind her characters. Ms. Bradley sucks you into worlds that you may have only dreamed about and causes you to want more. Eden Bradley is an auto buy author for me. I can't wait to see what she brings next.
