*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review* 

This was the second book in the Absolution Series.

Break Me picks up right where Bend Me leaves off... and the ride is *scorching*!

Agnes Eliza Bright met her first Dominant, Marcus, online, and when they first met face to face, back in the first book, it looked like it was going to be a great relationship.. until Marcus' best friend David Lake enters the club where "Eliza" is waiting. One look at each other and all bets, and time with Marcus, ended up being called off.

Now Eliza has agreed to be David Lake's submissive for 2 months to see if they can build a relationship. David is very much a Dominant, and Eliza is a submissive.

Eliza breaks one major rule. She has not been honest with David. She hasn't told him her real name, or that she's still married. Although she's signed her divorce papers, her estranged husband has not. The signed paperwork sits day after day on the breakfast bar at home, and day after day, Jonathan ignores them.

She knows she needs to tell David... but how? When will be a good time? If she does, what will happen?

This story was good, but at times the actual *story* was overshadowed by sex. The sex was hot, yes, but there was just too much of it. I much rather read a story where the sex is not taking place every other page, for pages, where the story is about the characters, what's going on, and the sex doesn't feel like the main component. I ended up skimming a lot because of that. But all in all, when I drilled down past the sex, the meat of the story was a good one.

Worst thing about this book was the major cliffy at the end, so be sure you have Bind Me locked and loaded!
