Review 'Breaking Love' by MJ Summers


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22877856-breaking-loveThe next wonderfully romantic read from MJ Summers, bestselling author of ‘Break In Two’.

Luc Chevalier is a satisfied man - or so he thinks. His businesses are thriving, he has all the excitement, money and beautiful women any man could want. He dines at the best restaurants and stays at the most luxurious hotels as he makes his way around the globe. So why does he suddenly find himself so restless?

Megan Sullivan is a single mom with a rather ordinary life. She is comfortable with things just the way they are. She has a six-year-old son, Elliott, a cozy house in Boulder, Colorado, and a photography business to put food on the table. Megan is on her own and she intends to keep it that way.

But when Megan is convinced by her best friend to take a trip to Paris, she's thrust into the arms of Luc Chevalier, the sexiest man to ever set foot on the Eiffel Tower. They agree to one night together and no more. In those few short hours he manages to draw out the passionate woman that Megan has carefully hidden way for years. Once she has a taste of what she's been missing, she finds it almost impossible to go back to her life as it was.

Will two people who don't believe in happily-ever-after manage to put aside their doubts and find their forever?

My Review:


I received ‘Breaking Love’ by MJ Summers through the Little Brown Book Group in exchange for an honest review. I read the description of this book and immediately was excited about reading it.

In ‘Breaking Love’ we meet single mom Megan. Megan is in her mid-thirties and is singlehandedly taking care of her 6 year old son. Megan left her husband years ago after his addiction with drugs got out of hand. Now Megan is taking care of her son, working hard to establish her own business and also taking care of the household. Megan has completely sworn of man and romance. When Megan gets invited to visit her best-friend in Paris she is thrilled with the prospect of doing something for herself. After her mom convinces her to go and have fun in Paris, Megan grabs her stuff and meets her friend in the city-of-love.
Luc Chevalier is a French powerful billionaire and he is well known for being a womanizer. Luc is in his early forties and he never wanted woman to stay longer than a day. But then Luc meets Megan, and he is blown away by her kindness, beauty, stubbornness and perseverance. Megan is immediately taken away by Luc’s handsome face and French accent but she knows she has to stay away from him. But soon Megan and Luc’s life changes forever and a new adventure begins.

‘Breaking Love’ was from the beginning on a very easy book to read and to get into. Right from the very first page I felt like I knew the characters. They felt really real to me.
I love books about strong independent woman and Megan definitely fits this description. Megan lives her life for her son and she does everything to make this little guy happy. From the moment I read about Megan’s past I could completely understand why she is the way she is. I felt an immediate connection with her and it made this book even better.
This book is written from both Megan and Luc’s point of view. I loved that. This book was very passionate and I really enjoyed it. Especially the parts where Luc started talking French. I mean OMG… who doesn’t like the sound of a handsome man talking French.?!

The character I loved the most in this book was definitely Megan. She was just so strong and a great example for her son. Even though Megan forgets a little to live her own life she works so hard to make up for the mistakes her ex-husband made. I found her very admirable. I honestly cheered when Megan went to Paris to have some fun for herself.
And the thing I love the most about this book was the passion between Megan and Luc. They both had their fears and this made them very real to me. I loved the interactions between them and their where plenty of sexy scenes.

This was definitely a nice and enjoyable read for me. A perfect book to read on the couch with a blanket and surrounded by candle light. 

About the first book in this series 'Break in Two':

 

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18585911-break-in-twoHaving just discovered that her live-in boyfriend has traded her in for a twenty-two year old hostess, thirty-one year old Claire Hatley is on the run from Seattle. Devastated and alone Claire must make a fresh start. She answers an ad for a chef at a guest ranch just outside Colorado Springs and finds herself face to face with Cole Mitchell, quite possibly the sexiest man to ever ride a horse.

Common sense tells them to stay away from each other, but their attraction is not to be denied. He gives her a glimpse of what love should be, but just as she starts to trust him, the past comes back to tear them apart.

Join Claire and Cole as they embark on the stormy love affair of a lifetime.

(Oh . . . and for those of you with husbands/boyfriends, please tell them "you're welcome" from MJ ;) )
