Using a façade meant to be normal and hide the scars of her childhood, she’s made a good life for herself. Becoming a successful lawyer, she is finally free from the tortured past that haunts her daily. Until he comes along and breaks open the cracks.Nathan Thorne has a haunted past of his own. On the surface, he is personable, extroverted, and loved by everyone; everything Delilah isn’t. However, hidden beneath his charming smile is a dark and tormented man that only Delilah has the power to unveil.Forced into a small office together, they begin to see through each other’s masks, and the magnetic attraction ignites an explosive relationship. Their firm, Holloway and Holloway Law, has a strict non-fraternization policy, forcing them to conceal their breach. But despite their efforts, separation becomes impossible, deceptions escalate, and Nathan begins to teeter on the edge of being overtaken by his past demons.What dark secrets does Nathan harbor that stop him from giving in, and what is it that keeps him from healing and moving forward? And more importantly, where does Delilah fit into his turmoil? Will they be able to accept love and deal with all the trials that develop as their secrets are exposed, or will they fall through the cracks of their pasts and be consumed by all that haunts them?An exciting new romance, Breach will hook readers from the very beginning. With smoldering romance and captivating erotica, this enthralling story is perfect for all. Using shrouded secrets of the past and a combustible relationship that borders on taboo, this thrilling novel ramps up the tension and romance at every turn.
when a book starts talking about, in the first few paragraphs, that its going to bruise, and she loved it, you know its not going to be a fluffy romance, but by gosh, this book was a real proper page turner!!
Delilah has a past, that causes her to have a very low self opinion, (some comes out during the book, I’m not saying!) Nathan wears a mask, for he is hiding himself. they are both very broken, and together, they try to heal.
HOWEVER, that’s not so easy, when Nathan is trying to push Lila away, as Lila wants to get close. Some of each of their pain is released during the book, and the things these two have gone through is heart breaking, I cried at some of the nightmare scenes, for both of them. When Lila’s ex turns up working with them, things are pushed to a head. and when a birthday looms, Nathan loses it.
Pain is the biggest emotion I get from this book, it really is. I feel for these characters. there is sex, ALOT of sex, and its all hard and fast and up the wall type of sex BUT its right and proper that these two have that kind of sex, I’m not calling it a relationship, as it isn’t, not by a long shot.
if you like a love story, this aint for you BUT if you like them tougher, deeper, darker, grittier, damaged (physically and emotionally) with a big story to tell (and its by no means finished!) then this is for you.
written entirely from Lila’s point of view, I would like to have heard from Nathan. that’s the only reason it didn’t get 5 fangs. BUT the next instalment is the last few chapters of this book, told from Nathan’s point of view, and I’m off to read that.
Breach is the first book in the Breach Trilogy. Delilah Plamer is a lawyer at Holloway and Holloway Law Firm. She wears a mask everyday trying to hide her the scars of the past that never fully healed. New to the firm is Nathan Thorne. He is a gorgeous man, who happens to be her new partner sharing an office space with Delilah. Nathan pushes all the right buttons getting under Delilah’s skin until they finally can’t take it anymore and both of them explode. A combustible passion bursting at the seams erupts, but how long can it last. There is a strict no fraternizing policy in place making their relationship dangerous not to mention Nathan carries tortured secrets of his own.
Sparks flew right off the pages, along with clothes leaving nothing but bare, raw, dirty passion. The sexual tension between Delilah and Nathan is ever present and hot. Both characters were real and raw. They both have flaws and a tormented past. I liked how genuine they felt. I could feel their emotions as my own. I have a thing for tortured characters and I was eager to learn more about what happened.
This book is a wild ride and really defines the phrase dirty talk. There was a lot of sex and I mean a lot. It was a little too much for me so I was glad when the author finally started weaving the story in there. The story line and the motion of the story as their relationship developed made it worth it.
The ending left at a cliff hanger, leaving you holding your breath to find out what happens. I dislike cliff hangers but the peek into the next book took off the edge so it wasn’t leaving you completely guessing and yet still made you want to pick up the next book so you can find out what happens.
I recommend this book for anyone looking for a steamy rough romance and is not afraid of the dark and dirty then this is the book for you. This book is definitely for a mature audience.
I would give this book 4 fangs because of the ending. It left me wanting to know what happens next.

He wanted her to leave him, but, in the end, he was forced to do it.Separating himself from Lila puts Nathan in a level of hell he never knew existed. The journey is a spiraling decent where the beast inside is released and havoc reigns in the arena of self-destruction.But what is he to do? It was for the best, after all.The last three chapters of Breach from Nathan’s point of view
I said in the review for Breach, I wished I had heard from Nathan. I take it back. I’m sat here, on my lunch at work, crying,actually, SOBBING is more the word.
I also said pain was the predominant emotion in that book, but this? This is utter and total agony. I know Nathan loves Lila, he does, deep down, but he just can’t admit it. When she suffers both emotionally and physically because of him, he spirals out of control, but still he can’t say the words to him self. We learn a little about his pain, his suffering and WHY he keeps pushing Lila away.
You really MUST read Breach before this short, 70 odd pages, snippet of Nathan. You need to know what Lila is going through. Make sure you have tissues ready. and try not to be at work.
4.5 fangs, because I wish we had heard more from Nathan, from the very beginning, a longer book, or a merger of this one with Breach.
everyone is telling her listen to him, let him explain, he loves her, he really does. but if Nathan’s deep dark secrets are revealed, and they are to move on, so must Lila’s. and when that deep dark secret finds her, after ten years, she fears for her life.
very different to Breach, a lot of reviewers complained Nathan is like a different person entirely, but come on! it says so in the book, a couple of times, he is a changed man. granted, its over half way through before Lila and Nathan get back to the banging-up-against-the-wall-and-that’s-gonna-bruise type sex that was in Breach, BUT Lila had a massive car accident, Nathan had a breakdown. you cant expect anyone, let alone this pair, to jump right back into it!!
I LOVED the therapy session with Darren. again, some other reviewers complained about that, but no, I loved them and they were definiately needed as part of the story. I wasn’t so happy with the Boob Squad and what they said to Lila after her attack, office bitches cant be THAT bad, surely???
all of their past comes out, Nathan’s dealing with Marconi, and what happened to his wife (didn’t see WHO she was coming, I tell ya!!) Lila’s history of abuse at her father’s hand. all painful stuff, but dealt with well, and again, PAIN features in much of the book, but about half way through, it began to change and HOPE began peaking through. 🙂
still nothing from Nathan, and that’s why it gets 4.5 fangs, because at points in this book, I NEEDED to hear what he was thinking, feeling, I really did. there is a third book, and I hope they get their happy ending, but you just know there will be problems along the way. I just hope it ISNT all hearts and flowers, cos these two are sooooooo not that 😛
Infraction is book two in the Breach series. It should be read after the first book, Breach, to have an understanding of what’s going on.
Delilah wakes up in a hospital after a car crash. It’s not just her body that is in need of healing but her heart as well. Nathan wants to be part of her life and begs for forgiveness but both of their pasts stand in the way of a healthy relationship. They have to learn to trust each other and most importantly learn to communicate with one another, that is if Delilah can open her heart once again and accept him back.
I liked this book better than the first. It was filled with real, heart-felt emotion. I was right there with the characters experiencing the ups and downs. The best part was how much Delilah’s and Nathan’s relationship grew.
There wasn’t much I didn’t like about the book. Sometimes it was a little slow but not enough for me to get bored. I liked the closer look we got at Nathan and his family. The new secondary characters like Erin were a great addition.
This book is a definite read for those who read Breach. You won’t want to miss what happens next. I recommend this book to those readers out there who like a little rougher and emotional romance with real and flawed characters.
I give this book 4 fangs and will be anticipating the next addition.
