Rating: 5 out of 5.

I was lucky enough to read this book after the author reached out to me. I hope the prospective reader will read this review fully before making any prejudgments on the book. I will give the book my thoughts, good and bad. Also, this review contains opinions that are my own and not the author’s. My thoughts will be different from your thoughts and just know that before reading the book.

DISCLAIMER: This book I have to give a disclaimer for. To any readers who read my blog or are interested in the book, please know that there is strong language and sexual themes in this book. I believe it not suitable for readers under the age of 18 and not suitable for anyone who is easily triggered by horrific events. I recommend you enter reading this book with that in mind and you know that some of the things in this story are disturbing. I would compare it to Game of Thrones. Like the first book, this one has dark themes. Please be aware, but don’t let it stop you from reading. It could make you see the world differently.

Quinn Sanders has been hiding from her past. Her whole life revolves around a center for kids. Until her past and present collide, she has lived peacefully. Someone is targeting the kids at the center that they think no one will miss. When an opportunity arises to help a young girl, Quinn jumps at the opportunity to help her. She doesn’t care about her own safety in the process. Ethan Vanderbilt has experienced his life being uprooted before. He was not expecting it to be uprooted again. Since his sister has found love, Ethan knows that it is now his turn. He wants to be with Quinn Sanders. He wants her and now she is caught up in a human trafficking investigation. He will do everything that he can to keep her safe. Quinn just has to outrun her shadows and into the light. She is Breaking Shadows.

First, I want to say that I loved Kara and her story, but man I love Ethan too. He is just an amazing character. I love him and I thought the relationship between Quinn and Ethan is so great. It is a dark storyline, like the first. I think the darkness in the story just builds on the relationship. Like the first book, this one is similar in the sense that it is perfectly crafted two people together. These characters are complex in the fact that this is not real life to a lot of people. It brings to life the extreme pain that someone has gone through. It opened my eyes to love and happiness through pain and suffering. I think these two set up the story to be a ride. I connected with them. I cried with Quinn and I loved Ethan just as much this book as when I met him. I knew he was going to shine as a hero.

My Rating: I loved this book. I loved the plotline. I think that it shows the darkness of society and the terrible situations that one can go through. I think that the writing is superb and it just went up from the first book. It is not often that I fell in love with the second book even more than the first. I mentioned in the review I did on the first book that it is amazing, but I may not read it again right away. This book I will read again and again. I can already see myself finding more sections that I love that I missed the first time around. This book is 5 phenomenal stars. I absolutely cannot wait to read the third book, the fourth book, and whatever Melissa Sinclair is willing to write.

I hope this review helps you in making your next book choice. Happy reading!

SECONDARY DISCLAIMER: I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
