Blog Tour - Breaking Shaun ~V~

Synopsis:

Some men fall in love and hand their balls over to the first woman who keeps them interested—but not me. Surfing and my freedom are the only two things I’ve ever needed. Meaningless one-night stands are fun, but the drama and jealousy that follows them aren’t worth it. 
Until I met Natalie, I never realized there were women who thought like me. She enjoys sex with no strings, and with a body like that, there isn’t a man around who doesn’t want a piece of her—including me. 
But our friends and relatives all run in the same circles. And we all know friendship and sex leave a mess. Hearts always end up broken. 
I know it. 
But I still want her. 
Sometimes, the things we want don’t always come easily. Every choice, every action has consequences that can change you. 
They can change everything. 
And no matter how fiercely guarded, even the strongest hearts can break.

Review—Breaking Shaun

“Why can’t I find a woman like me—someone who loves sex but doesn’t need a relationship to justify it?  Do women like that even exist?” –Shaun

Meet Shaun.  Cocky, gorgeous, and gets whatever or whomever he wants.  Problem is, being a player is getting old and Shaun no longer sees the fun in a good old “pump & dump”.  He needs a woman who isn’t needy, someone who has the same issues he does…even if he is afraid to admit what those issues are.  A woman who is happy to use him as much as he uses her…

“Women like me don’t fall for guys like you.  We don’t come when you call, we don’t beg for your attention, and we don’t confuse sex with love.  Women like me break men like you.” –Natalie

Beautiful, confident, doesn’t take crap from anyone.  That’s Natalie.  Having a rough start in life and being thrust into adulthood way too early has hardened her heart in all ways possible.  It’s easier to “get in, get off & get out” rather than stick around…when the feelings get involved, only she will end up hurt.  Life is less complicated when it’s controlled…but where is the fun in that? 

Natalie needs a fresh start in her life, so moving across the country to be closer to her family is where she starts.  She never imagined she would find so much more than just those personal relationships she craves…meeting people who are genuine and kind throw her for a loop…with one extremely persistent Alpha pushing to the front and center of not just her mind, but possibly her heart.

“I need a strong woman who is secure in herself and who can handle what I’m willing to offer—or more like, settle for what I’m willing to offer.” –Shaun

“My camera gave me a link to the world around me, a world where I always felt so disconnected.  All I’d ever wanted was to belong, to be missed when I was gone.” –Natalie

There you have it.  Two seemingly confident, easy people who use sex as an escape from reality…both afraid of commitment, but for some reason find the courage to try with each other.  Except being friends is a large gray area, and neither one realizes when they’ve crossed the line. 
It’s all fun and games until your past comes back to haunt you…or slap you in the face.

“Loving someone isn’t enough to keep them from leaving, and I’ve been left behind enough to know it’s not worth the risk.”

Let me just start by saying…I LOVED THIS BOOK!  Like loved it more than the first…EM, these just keep getting better and better.  This story pulled me in so many different directions, I literally swooned at 72%--SWOONED!!!  Shaun and Natalie are a perfect duo…and I got the hugest kick out of Mandy (I know her in real life), I can honestly say—strong female roles are totally hot and this was written superbly.  I really can’t say enough about this book, I mean, I read it in one day…if that says anything at all!

Excerpt

 “Is this what you wanted?” he whispered as he took my wrists in one hand and the other came down to cup my breast.
            I swallowed as moisture gathered in my mouth and my brain scrambled for a response. It was just so difficult to think with Shaun’s hard body pressing against mine in the middle of his apartment building where anyone could see us.
            His gaze finally broke from mine and moved down to my lips as he glided his thumb across my hard nipple. I could smell the soap on him, feel his wet, warm skin pressed against me. My eyes fluttered closed and I pressed my head against the wall as the lust took over.
            Shaun moved his hips forward making me very aware of his arousal before lowering his head and slowly dragging his tongue across my bottom lip. I was panting now and my entire body was tingling. I don’t know how he’d done it but Shaun had completely turned the tables on me. I’d come over to assert myself and show him the side of me he hadn’t seen, yet here I was getting pressed against a wall and turning into putty in his hands.

About E.M. Abel

My husband is awesome and also a Chief in the US Navy. This means crazy schedules, uncertainty and lots of nights spent alone writing on my computer. 
I have two amazing kids who always know how to make me laugh. 
I've been passionate about writing since I wrote my first poem in the 3rd grade and I've been using it as a means to express myself since. 
I think because I hold my emotions so close and fear being vulnerable I use different forms of self expression- writing, drawing, painting, photography, tattoos- to show the world who I am.
The one rule I use everyday is the Golden Rule--"Treat others the way you'd like to be treated." I believe karma is very real and sometimes she can be a bitch if you make her that way. 
 I love acting crazy, I love to laugh, I love making people laugh, I love the ocean, I love dancing like no one is watching, I love good music, I love good books... oh man I should probably stop there. I love a lot of stuff. 
Please feel free to write me or send a friend request.
