I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Break Free manages to be both heart-wrenching and heart-warming in one story.The very first scene is truly disturbing, as are all of Jade's flashbacks. I liked the message in this story, the strength Jade shows when she finally decides to stand up for herself and change her life.
Jade is running from an abusive relationship and a meth addiction. She's truly an amazing character. To recover from one or the other would be extremely difficult, and yet she has to deal with both. Fortune smiles on her when she finds shelter in Kyler's barn. Over time she begins to learn to trust again. Unfortunately for Jade, she discovers she may have trusted the wrong man.
Kyler is also suffering. He is a loner, a recluse in his farmhouse. A writer by trade, Kyler convinces Jade to stay with him and be his assistant. Frankly he comes across almost too good to be true. He's so sweet and understanding to Jade. The reason becomes clear at the end, but you'll have to read it yourself to find out.
Jade was an easy character to like. From the moment she was introduced, I wanted to give her a place to stay and protect her from the abuse she'd experienced. Kyler also was wonderful. He seemed to always know just how to treat Jade to make her feel safe in his presence. I appreciated how the story ended, found it quite satisfying.
