Title: Dangerously Broken
Series: Dangerous #2
Author: Eden Bradley
Release Date: October 6, 2015
Eden Bradley, the author of Dangerously Bound, brings another Dangerous romance to passionate life...
For Jamie Stewart-Greer, BDSM is the perfect way to release the darkness inside him and use it for pleasure. But it’s getting more difficult to hide this side of himself—especially from the one person who elicits his most extreme, secret passions.
When his best friend died, Jamie promised he’d watch over his little sister, Summer Grace. Summer is a nearly irresistible sex kitten who’s been after Jamie since she was fourteen—and she’s absolutely taboo. But now she’s hunting him in his territory—the Bastille, New Orleans’ most infamous BDSM club—and Jamie knows he’s in trouble.
Summer is more than ready to indulge Jamie’s secret kinks, and as their relationship spirals into the darkest recesses of absolute pleasure, it only stirs her desire for more. If Jamie is willing to give Summer what she wants, it’s going to turn love into the most dangerous fetish of all.
It's been a while since I've read an Eden Bradley (or Eve Berlin) book, but after reading Dangerously Broken I realized how much I missed her writing and books. I promise to go back and read everything I haven't read. While Dangerously Broken wasn't a quick book, it was an easy read. Once again I stayed up quite late to finish it. I couldn't put it down.
Jamie and Summer Grace have known each other for a long time. Jamie was Summer Grace's brother's best friend. When her brother died, Jamie made a death bed promise to look out for her. Because of that promise he always refused Summer Grace, even when she threw herself at him. When Jamie finally sees Summer Grace at his kink club, The Bastille, he knows he can't resist any longer. He wants her. He's a Dom. He sees she's a sub and he goes for it.
I haven't read the first book in this series, but I had no problem understanding the plot. It can definitely be read as a stand-alone or out of order. I plan to go back and read Dangerously Inked now. Jamie is all Dom and all Alpha. He also gives off a bad boy vibe with his piercings. As if that isn't enough, Jamie also has a trace of a Scottish accent. He sounds incredibly sexy. Summer is also sexy. She's submissive, but new to the scene. She's sassy and spunky. She's perfect for Jamie.
Even though Summer is new to kink, since she's known Jamie forever their scenes are intense. She trusts him as she's never trusted another and he goes all Dom on her. He's a bit a sadist, but she's the perfect masochist for him. I loved the way Eden wrote their scenes. They were intense, but loving.
Of course, the past is an issue for both Jamie and Summer, but once they get past that, you can tell that they're meant for each other.
I really liked Dangerously Broken and give it 4 STARS!
