Breaking Bennett Tour Stop!


Beth Rhodes has always had a game plan. Go to college. Get the perfect job. Get the perfect guy. Get the happily ever after she’s always wanted. It is just her luck that everything falls into its precise place in her life. At least it seems that way until her blueprints go up in smoke. She loses the job she loves and her price charming is turning out to be the villain of her fairytale instead. With failures and mistakes piling up on her doorstep, she knows something has to give—or she could very well end up paying for those mistakes with her life.


Braxton Bennett is lethal, both in the courtroom and in the ring. Two sides of him constantly wage war against one another, and to keep the internal bloodshed at bay, he allows himself to indulge in his violent vice. Suit by day and brawler by night aren’t easy dual lives to manage for a man of his status. The only way to do so is by following a strict set of rules—rules he won’t break for anyone. But what if he already has?


On a summer night in the depths of the city, a chance encounter will turn both of their perfectly constructed worlds upside down.


Will they battle together against all odds to break Bennett’s rules? Or will Rhodes tap out to save herself before the fight is over?

After being introduced to Braxton Bennett, I would have to say that I would not mind breaking him, or even just getting an attempt to break him.  In the bedroom, of course.

 

Beth has a jerk boyfriend.  One night he goes too far, and she is saved by a mystery man.  Brax Bennett is a lawyer by day and an underground fighter by night.  He uses the underground fighting scene to try and beat back his demons, and he’s managed successfully to keep his two worlds separate, until Beth.  She’s his new assistant, and the woman he saved from a jerk boyfriend after an underground fight.  As Beth and Brax get to know one another, lines are crossed.  Can they both come out into the light fully to see where what they have together can lead them?

 

Be warned, this is one of those fall in love quickly tales.  Once in a while, that approach can work and I think the author did a decent job of it here.  Braxton is a total alpha, if you hadn’t guessed from the description.  I really liked how he managed to separate his two sides though; it almost has a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde flavor to it.  Not that he’s not totally in control, but just the way he’s able to partition the two parts of himself off I found to be interesting.  It’s one way to deal with your dark side, I suppose.  Successful in the day as a lawyer, successful at night as a fighter. And it’s also interesting how as Beth enters the pictures she manages to challenge both sides of Brax.  He needed that, and she needed him too.  So, I get it.  Like I said, it works.

 

Overall, I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who likes this type of romance.  4 stars.
 

I’m twenty four years old. I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside of Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns and riding in trucks. I’ve been married to my handsome redneck husband for a year and we are parents to our chocolate fur baby, Bear. No kiddo’s yet! I am completely and utterly obsessed with country music, you will constantly find me stalking iTunes. If you don’t find me on iTunes, you’ll find me on Netflix because I am a self proclaimed movie junkie. Yes, that means that I quote them constantly in daily conversation and my characters do too! You couldn’t keep me away from a good action movie if you tried. I’m also a planning nut. I love to plan parties, events, trips – you name it! I don’t know if that’s considered a real hobby, but it is for me.

We were fortunate enough to travel a lot as a family growing up, and I think that helped spark my love of reading. I’m half Viking, my mom is Danish, and her entire side of the family still lives in Denmark. We’d visit them almost once a year, every year and it’s a nine hour flight. That’s a lot of uninterrupted time to read (or in my parent’s case, entertain four children – Yikes!). Somewhere along the way my love of reading, became a love of writing. I wrote short stories when I was younger, and although I majored in Business Management at college, I took as many English electives I could get my hands on.
During the day I work at my family construction company wearing a variety of different hats and at night, I write! I had never thought about writing books before, but after a few suggestions that I should try, I decided to give it a go. I loved it instantly! Having always been a creative person, it felt amazing to harness all that energy and use it to tell a story. Now, quite frankly it’s all I can think about, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m grateful to have developed my love of reading into a passion for writing. You’ll be seeing many more books from me in the future!
