I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
“I would never be able to protect myself from the storm. Because the storm was everything-love, desire, happiness, sorrow, pain. Life.”
Archer West is the total opposite of his devastatingly beautiful, intelligent professor brother. He is the epitome of a bad boy. While Dean was always the star of the family, Archer was on the path to destruction. Even as an adult, he drifted from place to place. Never had a sense of belonging. Never really cared about belonging. Until Kelsey. Kelsey March is an intense, witty, intelligent professor who also happens to be good friends with Archer’s brother, Dean. Kelsey is so wrapped up with her career. She has no time for romance. Until Archer. He has her feeling things she never thought possible. Things she never knew she wanted.
“Now I wanted to be caught. By him. I wanted him to fight for me, pursue me, want me, and capture me.”
The connection between Archer and Kelsey is undeniable. Their chemistry speaks volumes. While Archer is so sure he can get Kelsey to surrender, she goes into defense mode. She knows Archer is the type she is attracted to, but she shouldn’t want someone like him. Good girls like her shouldn’t go for bad boys like him. Someone so broken. Someone that pushes her to the limit. Makes her face her fears. Archer is that and more. Little does she know that Archer is just what she needs. Little by little, Kelsey’s true self is exposed. And this scares her. Archer digs deep down into the layers of Kelsey and sees her for everything she is. Kelsey opens up Archer’s heart. He has been so content about closing off his heart. But Kelsey makes him want to be able to love. Again.
“I wondered how he could seem both whole and broken at the same time. He was like a painting whose varnish had cracked over time and yet was all the more beautiful because of the damage.”
Break The Sky is beautifully and flawlessly written and this is no surprise. The author has a talent of writing the sexiest stories with intense and passionate romance. You will swoon over this story. While Archer is known for being a bad boy, his heart knows no boundaries. He loves with a love so deep.
“...though the phrase fell in love sounded much too simplistic to describe everything I felt for Archer.”
This story is much more than bad boy falls in love. Archer harbors a past so painful. This broken man’s spirit was awakened the moment he met Kelsey. You felt his soul breathe during that moment. Break The Sky was emotional, passionate, and an overall beautiful story that confirms that even love can be found in the darkest places.
