BREAKING AWAY is a story of loss, healing, and love… where unexpected turns and heartache lead to passion.


To Nashville Assassins’ leading scoring center Phillip Anderson, playing hockey has always been easy… as natural as breathing. His life is no different. That’s until his world is turned upside down by the death of his sister. While mourning his loss, Phillip has to find a way to make his very angry sixteen-year-old niece, Claire, happy. Now, as her guardian, he discovers the only thing that seems to heal her lonely heart is dance class. But what he didn’t count on was the attraction he’d feel towards her drop-dead sexy dance teacher.


For Reese Allen, dancing has always been part of her soul. After having her heart broken in New York, she comes home with the determination to make her dance studio one of the best in Tennessee and succeeds. When she sees Claire dance for the first time, she knows the girl is bound for greatness and takes the troubled teen under her wing. Using dance as therapy, she suddenly finds herself bound to the young woman… and her hot-as-sin uncle.


However, Phillip and Reese are happy in their single lives. It’s simple. They do what they want, who they want, and how they want, but from the moment they meet, the attraction is undeniable. Soon, they are more than willing to spend just one night tangled in the sheets. But, one night turns into two, and two turns into three, until they find themselves in a repeated dance of “One Last Time” that has the potential to be something more… if only Reese and Claire allow it.


Can Phillip find a way to thaw the hearts of both the women in his life, or will he be forever trying to break them away from their pasts?

Kristen’s Review:
I have loved every single book in this series so far and Breaking Away did not disappoint! Book #5 is Phillip Anderson AKA the “Pussy Killer” and the man eating b**** Reese Allens story. Both of these characters were in previous books and I was SO looking forward to Phillips story but I actually groaned at him being paired with Reese. Typically when I do not like a book its because of the heroine and the lack of connection I feel with her and I did not care for Reese in previous books. I admit, Reese annoyed me a bit but I grew to understand her and in the end LOVED her! 

These two have no problem getting together in the bedroom. Their sexual chemistry burns through the pages. But what happens when a one time thing turns into more? And one person wants a relationship and the other is fighting their feelings? Add in Phillips sassy teenage niece, nosey friends and family members and you have another winner in the Assassins Series! 4.5 Stars!

Breaking Away can be read as a stand alone and it has a HEA. But let’s be serious here. If you have not read this series start from the beginning and read them all! I promise you will not be disappointed!

My FAVORITE line from the book (It’s cheesy but I swooned)

“Ever since I got your pieces in my mouth, it’s the only candy I ever want.” -Phillip
