Arc received from author in exchange for an honest
Nina Lane is a gifted writer whose talents magically
place me within her story. She wields absolute power over my emotions by
forcing me to experience the joy, passion and heartache of all of her characters.
Lays a path I know will not be easy, but will always be beautiful. “Break the
Sky” is no different. Archer and Kelsey’s romance is one laced in desire, pain
and self-discovery. How I do enjoy savoring a tale of fractured souls,
weathering life’s storms, striving to find their inner strength and love. Once
again, Lane’s novel does not disappoint.
Archer West is a down right sexy and rebellious
tattooed bad boy. Kelsey March is an
atmospheric scientist/professor whose tornado-tracking project is on the brink
of being shut down. On a chance meeting, erotic sparks fly and their attraction
is so powerful, so carnal, it’s consuming. Their lives are worlds apart, but
together their sexual chemistry is raw, tumultuous and cataclysmic.
I fell in love with Archer almost instantaneously.
I have a special place in my heart for deliciously handsome and wild bikers. I
could not resist his charms; Archer wormed his way into my heart with all his
dirty pillow talk and larger than life character. However, what sets him apart
from the stereotypical “bad boy” is his gentleness. He is not one of those Alphas
whose asshole-ish ways piss me off only swoon when he finds redemption. He
possesses a definite edge with tenderness so sweet it overwhelmed me. The way
he is so in tune with Kelsey’s fears and understands her needs was
heartwarming. And when is comes to sex, Archer is a take-charge type of man. Total
Alpha - dominating and an incredibly demanding lover – off the charts
Archer is a complex character. I loved seeing the world
through his eyes. His life experiences,
events from his childhood, family dynamic and unpleasant past, made him the man
Kelsey is drawn too. His background and secrets
buried in his childhood memories pulled on my heartstrings. I was overcome with
the urge to reach out and comfort him. His rough persona barely skims the
surface – beauty lies underneath all his ruggedness and the way he loves and
evolves was admirable. He is a magnificent Alpha hero. This is one of the many
reasons I love Lane’s tales – her attention to details and tapping into emotions
lures you into the lives of her characters. It’s brilliant.
Kelsey is sassy, stubborn and a bit dramatic. Can’t
blame her, her professional career is careening out of control and she is
attracted to a man she believes is totally wrong for her. (Fighting her desire
to Archer is an understatement). Kelsey is a tough nut to crack – a perfect
challenge for the likes of Archer. Now, I appreciate the angst and chase… the
push and pull a couple works through. But, I felt at times Kelsey was a tad too
insensitive towards Archer. Found myself frustrated with her character a few
times throughout the story. Never the less, I respected her strength. She was a
perfect complement for a multifaceted man like Archer.
I like the use of symbolism Lane weaves into her
tales. Their love affair mimics the
tornado – stormy, intense and turbulent. The writer’s use of metaphors gives
great insight into her characters’ psyche and leads you to understand what lies
within the depths of their souls.
I truly enjoyed “Break the Sky”. Written in dual
point of view gave me more insight into the characters, making them more intriguing,
and easier to make connections with. Lane has an exquisite writing style,
providing detailed scenes in which I felt all the passion, heat, sorrow, love
and joy both Archer and Kelsey experienced. Her stories stir a powerful
range of emotions. If you are looking for a read that will capture your heart
and touch your soul, I highly recommend “Break the Sky”.
