So Jenn posted her review earlier this weekend for Breakaway from Kindle Alexander. Tonight we bring you my take on this story. Spoiler alert – I loved it too!! Greer and Dallas were everything I love about KA characters. So check out my thoughts below, and as always go 1-click. Happy reading friends.
Greer Lockhart set out to save the world from itself when he organized his first beach cleanup at the age of twelve. Now, as a uber-successful venture capitalist for eco-friendly startups, he doesn’t let anything get in his way—whether personal or professional. When a new fitness app schedules a site-wide cycle race, Greer’s competitive side won’t let him back down. Not even when his undivided attention turns to the one racer he can’t beat: Biker101.
Dallas Reigns learned a long time ago to keep his head low and his focus forward. He gives his all to a business he started with his brothers, BikeBro. But he worries his all might not be enough if they can’t gain traction before their financial ship sinks. A chance meeting with a hard-hitting venture capitalist is just what they need. Until his resistance is tested when the striking blond man shows interest in more than just his company, challenging all Dallas’s etched-in-stone boundaries.
When the illusion of Dallas’s life threatens to crumble under the weight of his own desire, can he find a way to fortify his iron will, or will Greer help him breakaway from the restraints of his past?
Breakaway was full of all the things I have come to expect from a Kindle Alexander story. The characters had depth, drive and passion about life. The story not only explores the world of these characters but also gives us glimpses into beloved characters from other stories. From the start it was clear that Greer and Dallas were on a collision course, and that when they finally collided that neither of their lives would be the same. Man was that true!
I loved Greer and his single-minded focus. He wasn’t your typical successful, rich guy. He really was more concerned with those around him, whether it was his p/I/t/a sister, his friends, his business or his desire to create an environmentally friendly world. Dallas, similarly had a drive to make his world better and to be there for his family. Dallas was so singularly focused that he never takes time for himself, and he is more focused on building his business than acknowledging his own misery. There was something both hopeful and at the same time sad about Dallas, as from the start I could tell he wasn’t living his life authentically. When Greer and Dallas meet it’s hot, and Greer is all about it; Dallas is a bit wasted and once sober is a more than a bit freaked out. Too bad Greer is not daunted in the least and is determined to find a way to make him his mister. The push pull between them as Dallas figures out his feelings was angsty goodness for me. When these two are together you can feel the heat on the page. A true finding our way love story, Breakaway did not disappoint. I loved the characters, loved the way these guys demonstrated their emotions, loved their circle of friends/family. Hoping that KA will give us Ducky’s story next!
“They weaved words of heartbreak, love, and triumph. They pulled on the heartstrings making me feel all the feels. My heart was full when I turned that last page.” ~ Jill Miller, Embrace The Romance Blog
“Breakaway is everything I want in a romance book. It is sweet and swoon-worthy, and so so romantic. The character depth is extraordinary and from the moment we meet Dallas and Greer, they owned my heart.” ~ E.Muddle, Goodreads Reviewer.

I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.
