This is a whole lot of angsty hero to fit into one novella. It's a fairly long one...a little over half the length of a standard category. Grace Song is a people pleaser. She spends her life trying desperately to conform to what she believes everyone around her wants. Her parents, broken hearted by the not so responsible other daughter. The boss, whose sexism and racism she ignores in the interests of keeping her job...and that's pretty much it really. No men and a best friend she hasn't talked to in months. So sharing a taxi with a hot cowboy in the middle of Manhattan shouldn't be too difficult for a girl with her life under control. It's a pity an accidental phone swap takes her to his hotel room straight after another demeaning episode with her boss leaves her with no outlet for her frustration. Enter that hot, sexy, now bare chested cowboy. Really, you know where we are going from here. Zach is, well I think I used up the usual superlatives for big, brawny guys with big hands and big thighs and big...no Zach doesn't actually have an ego. Sure that's what I was going to say all along. Where was I...looking for batteries...no...of course not. *cough* Zach is one yummy mannolicious babe and Grace is just perfect for him. It goes without saying he is perfect for her. There is lots of angsty backstory to make our little hearts go pitterpat. The redeeming moment was lovely and the ending very sweet.
My Thoughts: My adoration for these books keeps going strong, no doubt about it. This one rocked my socks so much because it was a gem in a sea of ordinary stories. If this is how Maisey Yates always writes, I'll definitely need to get my hands on another one. Grace and Zack have obvious attraction, but she isn't the type to give in to something like that on a whim. Or could she be? She blossoms in Zack's presence, though, and that's not something she can deny herself. There's more to him than meets the eye--he may seem like just another guy, but he has a depth to him that a lot of stories don't have. Their romance feels natural, and lively, and honest. And holy first kiss! Wow... just WOW. Breaking All Her Rules had it all--from romance to learning to find yourself. It may be short, and take place over a short amount of time, but you can feel the build for a future on the pages for the characters. It creates that little feeling of jittery happiness in your chest. I can't wait to read more by Maisey Yates! My Rating: Exceptional
