breaking shaun cover

Some men fall in love and hand their balls over to the first woman who keeps them interested—but not me. Surfing and my freedom are the only two things I’ve ever needed. Meaningless one-night stands are fun, but the drama and jealousy that follows them aren’t worth it.
Until I met Natalie, I never realized there were women who thought like me. She enjoys sex with no strings, and with a body like that, there isn’t a man around who doesn’t want a piece of her—including me.
But our friends and relatives all run in the same circles. And we all know friendship and sex leave a mess. Hearts always end up broken.
I know it.
But I still want her.

Sometimes, the things we want don’t always come easily. Every choice, every action has consequences that can change you.
They can change everything.
And no matter how fiercely guarded, even the strongest hearts can break.

Nina's Review 1

I have been following EM Abel since I read Freeing Asia last year. I fell in love with Asia’s story and have been waiting for a while for the next in the Breaking Free series. I had the pleasure of meeting her a few months ago and we have since formed a very strong friendship. I was so excited when we got to host the blog tour for her and was so ready to see my little surfer clan from Virginia again. That all being said, I was a bit worried, as with any new book that I am personally tied to the author, I questioned would she live up to my expectations? Would she be able to capture my attention and draw me into book two as she did book one? I must admit I wasn’t  just crazy about Shaun while I read Freeing Asia, so I knew EM had her work cut out for her, but now that I am through book two I will say….I fell in love with Shaun….big time. He was an amazing character to read about and his layers that were peeled back to get to know him was pure joy to read. This story was just WOW for me!

Wow is right.

Breaking Shaun is a story of choices and consequences. It is about 2 people who are afraid of commitment but yet still yearn for the love of another…without really knowing it. One of the things that I must confess is I loved loved loved was the cockiness and dirty talk of Shaun. He is confident yet he is also an extremely good person which doesn’t make him a douche. To me there is nothing sexier than a confident man who is still a gentleman and EM wrote the perfect mix of both. And let me tell you Shaun is a hot surfer boy that even at times when I was reading his sexy scenes, thinking Baseball. Baseball. Baseball didn’t help me out.

We locked eyes, and then we fell – fast.

Natalie on her part was the female equivalent of a manwhore. She too was confident in her sexuality and loved to have sex. Was she skanky? Not one bit. She was just a woman who loved sex. And I have to give it to EM for writing a woman who not only felt confident in her sexuality, yet underneath the surface was a little unsure of herself. She wrote Natalie flawlessly and I could totally understand her persona.

“Loving someone isn’t enough to keep them from leaving, and I’ve been left behind enough to know it’s not worth the risk.”

As these two lovers embark on their “fuck buddy” relationship things really steam up. When two people who have major confidence in the sack get together, it is just smoking hot! Add in lots of bikinis, board shorts and time on the beach and you have the trifecta of living the great life. EM has a way of writing a great guys POV…she has the language down, the mannerisms and there were so many times I was cracking up at the guy lingo in the book.

As I said before this is a book of how the choices you make in life lead to consequences. Shaun and Natalie made many choices in their lives and how they ultimately dealt with the consequences made this book so perfect for me. The path they ultimately find is not only beautiful but it is full of love and hope.

All these what-ifs rolled through my mind, but not of them mattered. I’d made my choice, and now, I had to live with the consequences.

EM, you gave me an amazing love story that I adored every minute of. It was so great to see the old gang back together and seeing even more of Marcus and Asia was awesome. You know I have been secretly holding out for Jay’s story and was so excited to get pieces of him throughout the book as well as his prologue to book 3. So looking forward to more of the Breaking Free series!!!

About the Author 1

My husband is awesome and also a Chief in the US Navy. This means crazy schedules, uncertainty and lots of nights spent alone writing on my computer.

I have two amazing kids who always know how to make me laugh.

I’ve been passionate about writing since I wrote my first poem in the 3rd grade and I’ve been using it as a means to express myself since.

I think because I hold my emotions so close and fear being vulnerable I use different forms of self expression- writing, drawing, painting, photography, tattoos- to show the world who I am.

The one rule I use everyday is the Golden Rule–“Treat others the way you’d like to be treated.” I believe karma is very real and sometimes she can be a bitch if you make her that way.

I love acting crazy, I love to laugh, I love making people laugh, I love the ocean, I love dancing like no one is watching, I love good music, I love good books… oh man I should probably stop there. I love a lot of stuff.

Please feel free to write me or send a friend request!
