Playboy billionaire Braydon Decker changes women more often than designer ties. Scarred and humiliated as a teenager, he pledged long ago to never trust a beautiful woman again. But then he never imagined meeting one quite like Jain Parker. Jain, a dedicated medical research scientist, learned early in college that her good looks were a hindrance and she’d have to tone down her beauty to be taken seriously, thus, Plain Jain was born, and men were no longer an issue. Of course, she didn’t count on running into Braydon Decker. A successful venture capitalist, Braydon holds the key to whether Jain’s research company sinks or swims. When the two are forced to work together on a fundraising campaign, they’re instantly drawn to one another, despite their individual vows to remain unattached. As they navigate unchartered waters, their inability to trust wages war with their desire to love. Hearts are broken and trust is shattered when betrayal and lies are revealed. Will the truth bring them healing and forgiveness, or will it be too late?
Breaking Braydon offers readers an emotional, compelling story filled with heartwarming humor, romance, heartbreak and love.
Breaking Braydon is a quick, light read. It is a sweet romance, where the characters have to learn how to trust, not only each other, but their gut feelings. The two character, Braydon and Jain are so untrusting of the opposite sex, that they have built walls around their hearts. Both of them had horible experiences as adolescents and those experiences follow them into adulthood. They have to examine their beliefs and decide whether or not the other is worth the risk.
For the most part I really enjoyed this story. I thought that Braydon and Jain were a great match. The author created two very special, lifelike characters. Not only did I enjoy these two characters, but the supporting characters as well. Jain's best friend, Colin, is a hoot. I really, loved him. He is everything a best friend should be: supportive, fun, loyal, and not afraid to tell her how it is.
Braydon is the ultimate player. He is known to not stay with a girl for more than a few hours (hours!) before kicking her to the curb. Jain does not want to become another notch for him. He knows that he either needs to change for Jain or ignore his feelings. When ignoring doesn't work, he is determined to get her. Jain quickly realized that she can't fight her feelings and gives in. Once they are both on board, it is explosive!
Breaking Braydon is a great book for when you want something light to read to laze the afternoon away.
I wasn’t opposed to spending a little time with them, the relentless women. The tabloids were right; it was always under six hours. After that, I’d be done. They usually wanted to stay longer. Why did they delude themselves? Jain’s different from those women. I punched my pillow again, groaning in frustration. These thoughts had been circulating around my brain all night. Why couldn’t I just forget about her? Her lips, that’s why. Every time I closed my eyes, I imagined kissing her. Slowly, thoroughly. I knew those lips would be soft and inviting. I could almost hear her moan with pleasure as we kissed and held each other close. Stop it! You’ll only hurt her. I needed to stay away from her. I would only bring her trouble, and she’d bring me heartbreak. Instinctively, I knew both to be true. But could I stay away?
MK has always been a voracious reader. After hitting a dry spell of reading material, she decided to write the kind of book she'd like to read. This resulted in the creation of her debut novel, Intentional. (Award for Best Sweet Romance - eFestival of Words- August 2014) Unintentional, her second book, is based on the life of one of the characters in Intentional. Unintentional was written as a stand-alone book. Breaking Braydon is MK's newest work. It will be published early 2015. When she's not writing novels, she likes to spend her free time traveling the world, splashing in mud puddles (She lives in Seattle, what can she say?), watching movies and reading (!) MK also runs her own business in her current hometown of Mercer Island, Washington. She LOVES to hear from her readers!
