Summary

SCARLETT

He had done it again. Ravaged me. Burned me. Broken me. Given me air, only to leave me gasping, writhing. But then something changed. Something that terrified and excited me both. Something that utterly destroyed me. Something that made me whole again.

DANTE

Our love was cursed from the start. She didn't know it but I did. All she knew was that I'd lied to her, betrayed her. Done unforgivable things. Unavoidable things. Yes, I had broken promises as surely as I had broken her heart. But, just as every war has casualties, and every lie has consequences - every bastard has his reasons.

Just OK

I had trouble connecting with the characters and never felt as if the story was complete in the end. Though I'm a fan of the author, this series wasn't for me but it was ok. The quality narration worked in its favor.

ANOTHER 5-STAR LISTEN!

Seriously, I'm a R.K. Lilley fan for life! There's just something about these books that hits every button for me. This series was perfection--dramatic, over the top, romantic perfection. It's not a fairy tale romance though, it's gritty, very dark, and kind of twisted. The narration was on point and befitting of the characters, also the interplay and history amongst the characters and their relationships was just toxic enough that I just ate up every minute of the story. A definite repeat listen for both books in this series, and highly recommended for those love sick like me out there.

THIS WAR HAD CASUALTIES.... BUT LOVE TRIUMPHED

R. K. Lilley has done it again.... she's blown me away with an absolutely gripping and riveting story of love that's turned toxic... leading to spiteful jibes, witty yet wounding banter and years of regrets, heartache and painful memories. As the story slowly unfolds it introduces you to Scarlett and Dante who superficially hate each other and yet their history's are somehow entwined, their feelings run deep, their chemistry is combustible.... and that sometimes leads them to give in to angry sex. Their pasts are waiting to be told and their futures are waiting to be rewritten.

The chapters dart from present to past and back again giving an insight into like minded childhood friends whose natures were so similar that they formed an unbreakable bond... the world vs Scarlett and Dante. Scarlett was found in a dumpster, lived in a trailer with her alcoholic Grandmother and was dirt poor - whereas Dante comes from Old money, had a Trust Fund and his Mother's high expectations for him were constantly thrust in his face. Opposites in a lot of ways and yet there tempers and attitudes were so alike.

They go from being devoted friends to inseparable lovers with their hearts and futures so tightly entwined that they thought nothing and nobody could break them apart... but they were so naive and so very wrong. As the story flips back to the present you know Dante's broken Scarlett's heart but how and why will remain a mystery until the end. This bitter-sweet heartbreaking and tragic story that slowly unfurls tells a tale of innocence, brutal rape, murder, jealousy, shattered dreams, painful memories, blackmail, treachery, lost years, bitter regrets, soul shattering shocks, twists, drama, angst, manipulation, lies, secrets, selfless unconditional sacrifice and soul deep anguish that cuts deep. However, there's such a sweet backstory, a touching young love and an epic love story amongst the rubble of hate filled years of war, conflict and hostility.

This review is for the entire duet because after book 1 I just couldn't wait to listen to the now available second instalment of Scarlett and Dante's story which was utterly compelling, pulse-poundingly gripping, tearfully tragic, heartachingly beautiful and totally unforgettable. These two characters loved and lost but when the awful unbelievable truth was finally revealed they fought hard, against a vicious vindictive enemy, and eventually got their long awaited second chance to make things right, to forgive, to heal.... and to claim their HEA.

Worth a credit? I'm emotionally exhausted, mind f'd, overwhelmed, overjoyed and grateful to R. K. Lilley for yet another memorable and very creditworthy listen... thank you.

Not as good as the first

I liked the story and we get answers to all the questions from the first book but it sorta left me feeling a little mad. Everything could have been avoided if Dante just told her what was going on and why. Scarlet knew how awful his mother was and if she knew the 5 year plan I’m sure she would have gone along with it. I guess I feel as frustrated as they do in the aftermath.

Hooked since book 1

The story was really good...loved how they went from present to past and past to present his and her storytelling . Narrators did such an awesome job! Their love really amazed me! There was nothing i didn’t like in this book, the whole book was well written and each character had a very important purpose I highly recommended you read book 1 first!
I read these series off of audible romance subscription and It’s books I have to return, but I will buy them just to keep them forever! I’m gonna have to check this authors other books I think she wrote such a very good book series.

So Good

I really enjoyed Breaking Her. The author did a great job bringing everything full circle and letting us see how things that happened with Dante and especially Scarlett in the past helped them heal in the present. It was a very healing time for those two and they really came together as a team and I that's what I liked the most.

Now I wish the ending didnt just wrap up all of a sudden like it did. For this book to be as dramatic as it was, I felt that I deserved a big crazy ending. That's not what I got. So I'm a lot disappointed about that.

The narration was so very good. I loved the narrators. They were so great and amazing to listen to. Just a perfect audiobook to listen to.

Stressful!

A lot of the talk was so dragged out and then it got to the end and we didn’t even get to hear the fall out on Adelaide‘s reaction to getting caught in all her foolery. Every horrible thing that happened to most of the characters came from her. Feeling a little cheated

So many twist and turns...then the end wow

The book has so many twists and turns, love and hate, I was hooked on both books. This book had few slow parts and few parts that felt they were missing something. But overall I loved the characters and plot twists. The last chapters had me on the edge of my seat.

perfect😍😍😍😍

I love everything about this story. I felt for the characters, it was interesting. It was a ride I could have listened to forever. Improvement... the end could have had a little more detail. The story really is moving. There is sensitive material in this story so be careful. some parts were hard to listen to.
