Dangerously Broken by Eden Bradley
For Jamie Stewart-Greer, BDSM is the perfect way to release the darkness inside him and use it for pleasure. But it’s getting more difficult to hide this side of himself—especially from the one person who elicits his most extreme, secret passions.
When his best friend died, Jamie promised he’d watch over his little sister, Summer Grace. Summer is a nearly irresistible sex kitten who’s been after Jamie since she was fourteen—and she’s absolutely taboo. But now she’s hunting him in his territory—the Bastille, New Orleans’ most infamous BDSM club—and Jamie knows he’s in trouble.
Summer is more than ready to indulge Jamie’s secret kinks, and as their relationship spirals into the darkest recesses of absolute pleasure, it only stirs her desire for more. If Jamie is willing to give Summer what she wants, it’s going to turn love into the most dangerous fetish of all.
Dangerously Broken is book #2 in the Dangerous Series and the first book I have read by this author. I was gifted a copy of this book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
I love BDSM/Dom/Sub/Sex Club books.
I love the kink and Sex and intensity and hell I REALLY love the fact that Dom’s tend to be extremely sexy alphas and let’s be honest all the Sex is a massive turn on lol.
Hmm but this book is well? Well it’s just plain weird!!!
I’m not sure if the story was written to pack out the sex scenes or if the sex scenes were amped up to try to make a long winded plot more interesting!!
I know I’m being a bitch about this book but I’m disappointed!!!
I had an ARC of this book and this can mean that it’s not the final edit. Usually this means there are minor spelling or grammatical errors.
Unfortunately in my copy the formatting was all over the place, there was a LOT of editing issues still to be addressed and it really affected my enjoyment of the book.
There are several characters in this book but I’d be surprised if I could identify them because they all were exactly the same. Even the main characters have no discernable unique ‘voices’. Now again this could be a result of the formatting/editing but even as I read the dialogue in my head it was monotone.
Summer and Jamie have this weird backwards, forwards dance going on and by the end I was ready to throttle them. They both have issues surrounding love and commitment but the banter that kept them going round in circles was more annoying than endearing!!
The Sex was the main redeeming feature in this book but even that would have been better if the infuriating chatter had been cut out and the couple allowed themselves to be consumed by passion.
Upsettingly I didn’t feel like the Dom/sub aspect was done that well, neither Jamie nor Summer ever seemed consumed by the ‘play’. Sub space is mentioned a LOT but whilst Summer was supposedly deep in sub space one minute but then she was able to have deep and meaningful conversations in the next!!!
I hate reading books that I don’t enjoy, I feel bad for not liking it but I just can’t help wanting to role my eyes at this book.
Dangerously Broken was not for me AT ALL and gets a dissapointing 1.5 stars from me.
