Almost Broken Up (Almost Bad Boys, #2)

AUTHOR'S WEBSITE: http://www.angelapeart.com



How far would you go to protect the one you love? 

The terrors of Colin’s past are revealed and accepted by Natalie. Her doubts about letting him into her life are finally disbanded and replaced by a sense of security and commitment. But Natalie doesn’t know that Colin’s past hides more dark secrets unknown even to him. 

When a delusional psychopath threatens Colin’s life, things quickly become complicated. Natalie’s stubborn character and desire to kick ass won’t let her step aside and allow the authorities to handle the danger. She gets herself tangled up with street hoodlums, befriends a Russian mobster’s high-maintenance girlfriend, and becomes expert at picking locks and hiding evidence. 
This contemporary romantic comedy/mystery blends humor and sensuality with enough thriller elements to make you clutch the pages with terror. The offbeat characters and witty dialogue from Almost Matched are here to stay. 

**Warning: contains sexual situations, profanity, and a high dose of sarcasm. Oh, and the appletini is still the drink of choice. 
May not be appropriate for readers under 18 years old. Not intended for prigs and sourpusses who get easily affronted** 

***Almost Broken Up is the second installment in the Almost Bad Boys series, and it comes after book one, Almost Matched. The books in this series should be read in order. They are not stand-alone books


After reading Almost Matched I was eager to start Almost Broken Up as I wanted to see exactly which the direction the author was planning to take with this series. Before I go any further, I must admit that I found this to be a more entertaining read than Almost Matched. My judgement may be a bit biased in his instance due to my love of stories that have an element of suspense and drama. 

Almost Broken Up started out with Collin’s POV, which gives readers an insight as to the guilt that Collin has been living with since that fateful night when his former girlfriend was killed in a motor vehicle accident. It made Collin appear more human and it made it easier for me to connect with him. 

Almost Broken Up does is not so much about the relationship between Natalie and Collin but more about the lengths that Natalie will go through to protect her man. Two new characters were introduced, one of whom will pose a threat to Natalie’s relationship with Collin and one who will offer her help in dealing with this threat. 

There were moments when I questioned Natalie’s sanity, especially when she made the decision to face the person who had threatened Collin’s life. I say this because it was clear that this person was absolutely crazy. But I guess when you are in love and you have faith in your partner’s innocence, then you will be willing to face any situation no matter how dangerous to protect him. It also helps when you have the girlfriend of a mob boss helping you out. 

There were several LOL moments. I found it to be rather hilarious, especially that scene where Natalie, Ali and her new found friend, Svetlana, engaged in a little B&E. I am not going to say much about this as I don’t want to give the story away. To find out what I am speaking about you will have to get a copy for yourself. 

The sex scenes between Natalie and Collin was quite erotic. It’s definitely not for the feint of heart. 

The author’s writing style is quite engaging as it pulls the reader in and makes them feel as if they are a part of the story. 

Overall, this was an enjoyable read. Recommended for readers 18+

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
