Overview

Charlie Dixon

"Down for a little choke & stroke. I got you." That's the profile of my last Tinder date, and he was oh-so-disappointing. His "choke" was more like a light tap to the neck, and I couldn't even bear getting to the "stroke."

The word "intimidating" is one I hear pretty often. From almost every man I meet. After a half dozen Tinder fails and another dozen setups, I'm resigning from dating. I'll never meet a man who can handle me. 

In one last-ditch effort, I've let my best friend take me to one of her kink parties. Disappointment after disappointment have given me pretty low expectations, but then, I meet him. Angelo Tibéa. Tall, dark, with no fucks to give. He's quite possibly exactly the man I've been waiting for. 

Angelo Tibéa 

I'm not the kind of man who dates. I don't do dinners, I don't do kisses and I definitely don't take my sexual interests outside of the club. I built it for exactly that reason, to keep my darkness contained. But something about Charlie Dixon stirs up everything inside of me. I have to have her… No, more than that. I have to own her.

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review. In this book we meet Charlie Dixon and Angelo Tibéa. Charlie just wants someone who wants her for her. Not because of how she looks or doesn't look. She also wants a man who will take charge and show her what it is like to be a woman. So far all she has found are wanna be's who are on tinder looking for a hookup that's easy or at least easier than Charlie. Charlie however agrees to go to a party with her best friend and her husband. Little did she know what she would find there. Angelo doesn't date and he sure doesn't advertise he is part owner in the club that the party Charlie is attending is at. One look at Charlie though and he knows she is different. The thing is Angelo knew the moment he saw her things would be different with her. Can these two get a HEA or will it fall away? This book is amazing. It does have its twists and turns that I really want to tell you about. However I don't want to ruin it for any other readers. I will say this book will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Right at her.When she looks her breathe seems to Be hard to catch.Then Naomi says that they are leaving does she want to go she says she'll take a uber But when she looks for mister gorgeous he's not there she looks around but doesn't see him he's right behind her she gets up freakishly to the ladies room hoping he'll follow.After a few minutes it looks like he's not coming she starts to fix her makeup.Then he's there licking the door as he walks up to her and touches her like is this story has so many twists and turns to keep you riveted until the very last page.there's hot sex scenes and seeing two emotionally scared people find love and happiness is great.I can't wait to see what's next by this multi talented author.I love the way this amazing author brings the characters to life before your eyes and makes you feel their emotions and their pain.

Even though I liked this story. Sometimes it felt as if it didn't flow smoothly. That there were bits left out!! There is BDSM content. It could have had a little more explanation.

Our heroine is successful in her job, but lacking in the bedroom and she wants to correct that. But how to find the right man for the job? This is an erotic romance story with elements of BDSM and lots of steamy scenes. Nothing wrong with any of that. The story is also well written and easy to read. Unfortunately, what it was lacking for me was a connection to the characters. The premise of the book sounded good, but I didn't care for the execution. Our heroine is a strong, successful woman, but as I was reading she just came across as cranky, quick to judge and inflexible. And our hero, when we met him, came across as moody and arrogant. Stories don't work for me when I cannot connect with the characters and that is what I found here. The writing was good and your mileage may vary, but it didn't work for me.

4 SEXY STARS. Just WOW. This book was a rollercoaster of emotions. Full of sexy and steamy times. I read it in one seating and enjoyed it so much! The main characters, Charlie and Angelo were so well portrayed in the story. Charlie Dixon is a successful business woman who knows what she wants and needs, that is until she meets with Angelo and her world turns upside down. Their chemistry was so delicious. There were super steamy times (i know im repeating myself but wow) Also there were BDSM elements in the story so beware before reading if not into it. Totally my guilty pleasure read. Definitely I would be reading more from this author. Overall i loved both main characters and their development and chemistry throughout the story and the epilogue was so cute/hot.

What a beautiful, sexy, hot read!!! by Misty Schott I absolutely loved this story. It's so satisfying to read a book that has a heroine that isn't a super skinny woman. Big, beautiful, sassy, smart and sexy is who Charlie is and she makes no apologies. She doesn't really know what she's looking for in a man, just that lately they've all been duds. Enter Angelo, owner of a super hot nightclub/sex club that Charlie's best friend drags her to for a mixer. The instant Angelo sees Charlie, he knows he's going to have her and he might even be thinking about more than a one night stand. Grab this wonderful book today and find out what happens when this super alpha dominant male meets the one girl who just might tame him. This is a super hot steamy read, so getting ready for some panty melting fun!!! Definitely a must read and I highly recommend it.

I absolutely loved Breaking the Brat. This was my first book by Karma and she definitely exceeded my expectations. This book had me on edge the entire time, I couldn't stop reading. I finished Breaking the Brat in less than a day. The ending left me speechless, so fantastic!!

There is an immediate connection when the two main characters meet at a party. I love the easy-going dialogue between the two characters who seem to be miles apart in terms of what they expect and want from any kind of relationship. At times there is a lot of emotion and drama due to poor communication between the two. As there is a male alpha and a no-nonsense strong female they have to work through a number of issues before they can truly give themselves to each other. There is some BDSM in this book and it’s a fairly short read only take a couple of hours cover to cover. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team Shannan – ☆☆☆☆ Charlie is a very confident woman. She knows what she wants and refuses to waste her time when she isn't getting it. Her personality can be considered intimidating. She was killing it running her own clothing line, but her personal life left a lot to be desired. Charlie's best friend Naomi and her husband Chester own a sex club. Charlie is interested in kink but her being so well known prevented her from joining, one casual party wouldn't hurt though. Charlie meets the man of her dreams at this party; after begging for sex in the bathroom and him walking away, she knows she's met her match. He has Charlie instantly wanting to please him. Can she look beyond his past to have a future? Is he worth it? Karma Kingsley is a new-to-me author. I found Breaking the Brat an easy, sexy read. I was drawn into the story and left wanting more. I will be looking for more from this author. Ruthie – ☆☆☆ I have to admit to mixed views about this novel. Overall, I am glad that I read it and got to see two characters get their happily ever after, but I did feel that Angelo used his position of power in inappropriate ways more than once. I accept everyone makes a mistake, misunderstands the newness of their feelings, but to do so harming another is just wrong. Given that he part owns a club, and so is in an even higher level of power, and therefore should be in control, his outbursts are all the more surprising. It is an erotic read, with much to commend it, but for me there were times where it went past my comfort zone. It veered into punishing her for him being emotionally attached to her, which is not how I felt it should be. Reviewers on the Wicked Reads Review Team were provided a free copy of Breaking the Brat (Curvy Brats #1) by Karma Kingsley to read and review.

This book is super steamy! Charlie is a badass business woman looking for someone to take charge. Angelo is the perfect guy for the job! Lots of sexy scenes! Not always a huge fan of "daddy" stuff but it wasn't over the top. Good read!

This one is off the charts hot. Charlie has a design company for big girls and is looking for men. Her bestie recommends she go to a mixer her husband’s club is having and she meets Angelo, said friend’s husband’s partner. Their chemistry is Instant and of epic proportions. This has pretty rough but consensual activity. It may trigger some people. I personally had a problem with the Dom not being in the right frame of mind. He allowed his anger to get out of hand...that’s just me.

I feel like I read a totally different book from everyone else & yes I know as readers we all take away something different from each book but this is in the extreme. I just didn't feel there was an actual story. She's a smart, sassy business owner who was trying to look for love but has given up on it and just wants a wham, bam, thank you ma'am encounter. He was a football player but now isn't, so he's part owner of a sex club and doesn't want to be with anyone. They meet and it's over the top insta love/lust. There's this big major thing that happens near the end (I didn't realize it was the end) and I think this is going to be this huge turning point in the story but guess what it was? It was pretty much the end!! After that, in which the big incident is forgotten about it goes into an epilogue like 6 years later. So basically, they meet, hook up, epilogue, the end. Received ARC through BookSprout. Voluntarily reviewed

This was a good hot and steamy read and I really enjoyed it. I liked both Charlie and Angelo they have lots of chemistry but don't really want the same things at the start of the book. If you like a good hot read with plenty of kink them you will enjoy this one it is a great read to curl up with for the night.

3.5 Stars!! The synopsis piqued my curiosity and being new to Ms.Kingsley's work I couldn't wait to pick this one up! This was a blushworthy and different kind of read for me. I liked it! There were many moments that I did not see coming! I liked Charlie and her determination from the get go. There were quite a few times when I related to her. I wasn't sure what to think of Angelo at first. I had a bit of a like / hate relationship with him. Throughout the story I enjoyed getting to see different sides to these characters. I wasn't sure how things were going to end. Ms.Kingsley brings the heat with Breaking the Brat! I'm looking forward to the next book and I can't wait to read more of her work in the future! (:

I loved this book! It was a witty, quick read that will leave you panting for more! Charlie is a curvy, no-nonsense, knows what she likes woman. Angelo is an ex-NFL player who owns a kink club. The "dates" Charlie goes on before meeting Angelo are laughable and utterly humiliating at the same time. The chemistry between Angelo and Charlie is explosive! Highly recommend!

I can't imagine what could be better than a crazy hot, sexually and non sexually attentive, Dark and DOMINATE ALPHA MAN. I will say this , though, I was really impressed to see that not only can a "curvy" girl be confident, but also portrayed as a successful business woman. and as a woman who knows exactly what she wants in and out of the bedroom. This book is dark, sensuous and very provoking. Even the way it ends leaves alot of unanswered questions. (Yes, I know it's only the first book. but it doesn't hurt to say it out loud.) This is my first time reading anything from this author and Karma Kingsley is soon to one of my favorite authors. And I am looking forward to seeing the rest of this series. I voluntarily received an advanced copy of this book via Booksprout, and any opinions expressed within this review are solely and uniquely made by me and I am happily leaving this review.

Good characters, pretty steamy story Good BDSM story, with very good characters that does not lack of temperament, but I like moderately references daddy / baby of the relationship of the two main characters Charlie and Angelo (I understand this words in the story, but I just don't like this verbal link) Charlie is a successful business woman in fashion with curves, who wants to have relationships, but she's very intimidating and men flees because she requires too much from them. Her best friend brings her to a sex club where she is immediately attracted to Angelo, the owner. Charlie discovers that what she likes does not correspond to what she thought, which does not prevent her from expecting more from this new relationship, in the face of an Angelo who has never had a relationship other than that of a dom and who has to adapt himself to Charlie's temperament.

Angelo and Charlie have an instant and explosive connection, in Breaking the Brat by Karma Kingsley. Charlie is an independent and driven boss babe. She’s proud of what she’s achieved, and as a strong, self-assured woman she’s been told more than once how intimidating some men find her. Frustrated and unsatisfied, she’s all but given up on finding a man that can keep the pace. Until she reluctantly attends a sex club mixer, where Angelo commands her attention from across the room. He’s dominant, guarded, and everything Charlie wants. He’s also the business partner of her bestie’s husband, and everything she says Charlie should stay away from. He has a dark side that Charlie may not be ready for. Will Charlie heed her best friend’s warnings? Or will Angelo ‘break the brat’? Read Breaking the Brat and find out! Karma Kingsley delivers great dialogue, smooth plot progression, and well developed characters. These characters have a hot and heavy connection, and readers should expect BDSM content and other triggers. Personally, I really struggled to like Angelo’s character. I’m all for dominant, alpha-hole male characters, but his anger and need for physical aggression surpassed that, and was not for me. Although a strong female character, I did feel Charlie made concessions for behaviors she wasn't ok with because they weren't inflicted on her. If you enjoy authoritative heroes, strong heroines, taboo and kink, and an all consuming romance, then Breaking the Brat by Karma Kingsley is right up your alley!
