Review: Breaking Brandon (Fate #2) by Elizabeth Reyes

Title: Breaking Brandon
By: Elizabeth Reyes
Series: Fate #2
My Copy: Ebook from Author
BookWhisperer's Rating: 3.5

Fate is a Moreno Brothers spinoff series.

He ruled out attachments years ago. Then one day he crosses paths with a beautiful but pampered daddy's little princess. History has taught him one thing about women like her—steer clear.

She was starting over. She moved back to her home town, took a new job assignment, and left her past behind. For the first time in over eighteen months, she's even intrigued by a man—a sexy but cold and indifferent drill sergeant. Despite feeling drawn to him, she has no time to figure out his inexplicable aversion to her.

Then Fate steps in one night, forcing them together. There's a connection neither can refute, and they both consider giving into the undeniable attraction.

Fate however can also be cruel. Just when they surrender to their heart's desires, past demons resurface in the most unexpected way, threatening the happiness neither realized they so desperately needed.

We love everything Elizabeth Reyes here at BookWhisperer and are always so excited to get our book-loving hands on any of her books. Breaking Brandon was no exception; we got it and were super pumped about diving into it.

Now that you know our love for Reyes let me just say that I had a hard time getting into this book.  I don’t know if it was just me or what, but something was off (and lets be honest, it was probably just me.)  I really liked the beginning of the book where Brandon runs into Regina and she immediately reminds him of Sophie so he decides to stay away and be somewhat of a jerk to her.  That tension was fantastic to read.  You could tell that they both were attracted to each other but that Brandon’s cold demeanor made Regina coil back from him and that Brandon just didn’t want to fall for another Sophie. 

However, their love happened so fast that I didn’t feel that connection between them.  I couldn’t wrap my head around that fact that one minutes they hated each other and the next they were madly in love.  This is the only thing that threw me off.

The rest of the book was fantastic.  I loved the drama that Reyes presented when Brandon went to meet Regina’s family.  Talk about a tense “first” meeting.  And, in general, the demons that both Brandon and Regina fight throughout the book were pretty intense.  Neither have had a perfect life and they both struggle, with the help of each other, to make it better.
