Breaking Away (Rocking Racers Book 3) by Megan Lowe is the third book in her Rocking Racer series. This story can be read as a standalone but I would highly recommend going back and reading the previous two stories. Each book is about two different characters but each book also has the previous characters in them also. It would give you more back ground information on some of the characters. This is my favorite series by this author and they just keep getting better and better. The characters in this book are a little rough but you will love them. They will take you on a roller coaster ride of various emotions that you won't want to miss. They will pull you into their world and keep you engaged until the last word. I love how these characters just pop off the page because they are so connectable. Find out what happens when it is time to find your own passion in life. Mav Ryan has a high profile career in FMX and to everyone he looks like he is living the dream. But he wants something more, something different, he wants out. Aubrey James has had enough of bad boys to last an entire life time. What will happen when her brother brings home this tattooed bad boy? When her past shows up, she is surprised that Mav steps in to protect her. Will he be able to fight his demons and her past at the same time? Will he find a home after breaking away from his family? Mav and Aubrey's relationship starts at the bus stop and continue to grows from there. He has left his family in order to pursue his dreams but feels guilty for doing it. She is just plain done with bad boys, she has had enough. Will he break down her walls and will she give him a chance? These are two great characters that are strong, both have some insecurities that need to be worked on in my opinion. Mav is hot, sexy man who doesn't want to let his family down but on the other hand he wants to pursue his dreams. Aubrey is smart and independent. She has been hurt in the past by other bad boys but what will she do when she starts feeling something for this bad boy? She has spent time being mean to him but he still seems to come back for more. She has become a great support to him, showing him that he is worth something and enough. She really needs to heal and be able to move on from her past. The secondary characters some of which we have seen in previous books are just as supportive to both main characters. I know that I for one can't wait to see who gets their own book next! Find out if Mav and Aubrey get their HEA or will fate have other plans for them? Will Mav finally stop feeling guilty for breaking away? Will Aubrey just let down her guard so that she can find the happiness she deserves? I am not sure how many books of Megan Lowe I have read but I love this series. Her writing style is such that it will pull you in from the first word. She will keep you engaged until the very end. Megan is a lost journalism graduate who was not able to find a job and that is when she finally gave in to the characters in her head and started writing. She enjoys writing on the theme of music and sports. You will love how you will not be able to put this book down. You will need to see what happens and it keeps you turning page after page. I highly recommend this book as I know you will want to find out what happens to Mav and Aubrey.
Breaking Away – Rocking Racers # 3 by Megan Lowe – 4 stars While Breaking Away is the third book in the Rocking Racer Series, it can absolutely be read a standalone. HOWEVER, I really think you should read Breaking the Cycle (book 1) and No Place to Hide (Book 2) because this family is hot, hot, hot!!!! Breaking Away is the second youngest Ryan brother’s story. Maverick is gold medal winning FMX racer (it is tricks on dirt bikes, those super scary tricks that make us hold our breaths when we watch the X-games). He loves his family and he enjoys his sport but he yearns for something more. When he meets Aubrey James and her twin Josh, Maverick recognizes that his life is about to change. He and Josh develop a friendship while he “plays the long game” waiting for Aubrey to decide to take a liking to him. This story was a little different than the first two and just as enjoyable. The story moves at a good pace, there are twists and turns that take place that at times were a little frustrating (brothers, am I right??) and getting to know Maverick was just awesome. I look forward to the next adventures of “The Ryan Family”. I know that Parker and Jax tales are coming up next and I hope we keep getting to revisit the entire family with each new book. I’m sure Liam’s story is also looming somewhere on the horizon. I am enjoying this series and I definitely recommend it.
