When Dawn Breaks by Melissa Toppen 5 Stars I don't even know if I'll be able to find the words to explain how much I love this authors writing. This is my second book by Miss Toppen and I'm a mess after reading it….When I read Where The Night Ends about a month or so ago I remember thinking that it was probably my favorite book of the year. Well I still feel that way but now I must say it was ONE of my favorite books of the year because this one shattered me. We met Tess in Where The Night Ends, and of course I loved her, but this is Bree’s story, one of Tess’s best friends. Bree broke my heart on more than one occasion while reading this book. I absolutely felt every emotion deeply while reading this. This author has such a way with words and I felt like I crawled inside this book, and knew every person in it and felt what they felt. Ant was who every girl dreams of, he was so amazing and strong. Both of these people have horrific demons hiding in their closets, being hurt by people in their lives that they should have been able to count on. The strength it took for these two people to get past all of that and even try to live normal lives was nothing short of amazing. This author is brilliant, I can't explain how wonderful her writing is in words..You have to read these books..Start with Where the Night Ends, they can both be considered standalones, but there is so much you will miss out on if you don't. I'm thinking there will be another book that ties into these, I'm hoping anyway because Court deserves her own story, and that would give me a chance to check back in on Tess and Bree and see how they are doing. I will reread these books many times, and will follow, stalk and whatever else this author so that I can make sure I have everything she writes. As of now I will be adding these two paperbacks to my “This Author is an Absolute favorite shelf” I only have a handful of authors I put on that shelf and Melissa Toppen is now one of them!!

I loved this book from start to finish. I was so glad that Bree got her own story. I really liked her character in Where the Night Ends and was intrigued by her story. Bree and Anthony both were a little broken by their lives, but this just made their bond so much stronger. If you are looking for an intense, emotional read then look no further because this is the book for you. Melissa Toppen is one of my go to authors and this book did not disappoint. I cannot wait for the next book.

When Dawn Breaks by Melissa Toppen was a fantastic read! Prior to reading this book I hadn’t really read any of her other works, but I had a feeling that this book would be an emotional rollercoaster full of enough twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. So When Dawn Breaks actually picked up right where Where the Night Ends, which is always my preferred reading, and the characters we got to know from the first book come back to continue their stories here. When Dawn Breaks is about Bree, her son Jackson and Ants. Ants is a blast from Bree’s past, an ex of a friend of hers, and yet she is drawn to him in the most elemental way. The way that Ants is able to connect with not only Bree as a woman but with Bree as a mother and her son Jackson was endearing to see. It was also a nice twist to see a romantic story with a single mother portrayed so well. I am so glad that I picked this book, and Where the Night Ends, as they were both such a great pleasure to read. This book can be read as a stand alone but once I found out that there was a book prior to this, I had to get it and read the back story. This is a story that I feel became better when read in series order, and I hope that Toppen continues this series.

When Dawn Breaks by Melissa Toppen is a contemporary romance story. This story does have some sexual and physical abuse situations that could be triggers for some. This story can be read as a stand alone but I highly suggest you read the first book as well it will help with some of the background for the story. We also get to see some of the characters from the first book which I love when an author does that. I love see what happens to characters after their story ends. This story will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride of various emotions and I even had a few tears. This story really is about friendship growing into something more when you let it. This author's writing style and creative details are such that they made me feel as if I was right there taking this emotional journey with the characters. Her characters are connectable, lovable and true to life. They will pull you in to their world with very little effort. This is the story of Bree and Ant. Both of these two are part of the same group of friends. Ant use to date Courtney when they all were in high school but had feelings for Bree more. Now that it is a few years later, Ant wants to know if she has feelings for him too? Are they ready to cross over the line of friendship? Are they willing to accept their fate if they do? Their emotions are all over the place but what they go through is what makes you stronger. I felt compassion for both of these characters, they were really just unsure what to do. What will happen when their loyalty is put to the test? I also loved these characters. Bree is so strong, loving and caring. She is just so emotionally hurt from her past that she really just needs to learn to trust again. Ant also has been hurt in the past and learning to trust is something he needs to do. He is also a strong character that you will get to see through his sensitive side. Life is a struggle sometimes and you will see that these two are no different. I enjoy this group of characters and hope we get to see more of them in future books. They are all supportive, loving and caring for each other. I highly recommend this story because I know you will want to see what happens with these two. Will fate allow them to heal and finally find their happily ever after?

Received an ARC at no cost to the author on behalf of Enticement Journey Book Promotions. Can I just say wow!! I have never read this author, but this is definitely not my last book from her, I already have plans to read "Where the night ends" just to familiarize myself with the characters more. This was an emotional book, and the level of writing from this author blew me away. She was able to make me feel so much, that is someone that knows what they are doing. Bravo Melissa! This was a forbidden love for Bree and Ant, they have known each other for years, and have been attracted to each other, but Ant was one of Bree's best friends boyfriends five years back, however she did not want to cross that line, amazing loyalty. Bree, was good had hiding her true self, the only ones that knew the real her where her best friends. But Ant could see it also, because she could see that he was also living behind a mask. I can't say anymore, you need to read it, my friends you will not regret.

I really enjoyed Bree and Anthony's story. Their history, connection and chemistry was amazing. I enjoyed the ride Melissa took us on. Learning their history was essential to understanding these two broken souls. Completely loved it!
