Holly James cannot stand to be touched by anyone ever since she was kidnapped. That is until she meets the arrogant and bossy rock star, Drew Walker.
When I first started reading this book, I was not sure if I was going to like it. Holly and Drew’s relationship took off so quickly I didn’t feel it was realistic. However, there was a very wise statement made in the book: you can’t put a timeline on love; it happens differently for everyone. Upon further thought, I feel that the speed of their relationship and my initial reaction was a totally success. Holly’s brother and friends also had a difficult time accepting their relationship, heck even Holly questions her sanity. I ended up adoring this book. I became more engrossed with every page. The emotion and passion are noteworthy.
I admired that Holly followed her feelings instead of wallowing in her fear. I also respected that she stood up for herself to her brother and friends.
Drew is a self-proclaimed control freak; a result of a tragedy in his youth. He knew what he wanted Holly right away. He is the definition of alpha male and extremely swoon worthy.
Both Holly and Drew have scars in their past that need healing. They are stronger as a couple and help to heal each other. That is of course when they are not upsetting the other.
I enjoyed the plot and reading about Drew’s lifestyle. Breaking Free is a wonderful novel that I am very happy to have read. If you enjoy contemporary romances with bad-boy rock stars, you won’t want to pass up Breaking Free.
