5 hearts


Favorite Quotes:

“Everything changed after that.  And everything stayed the same.”

“My heart flipped just like the coin – a wild seamless spin flashing silver.  I felt my heart suspend in mid-air for an instant, poised to drop, and I had the sudden, irrational sense that it too, could fall right into the palm of his hand.”


My Review:

I rarely give 5 star ratings – as I feel that standard should be reserved for only the exceptional masterpieces.  That being said – this book deserves 6!   This book is exquisite!  I had never read Nina Lane’s work before picking up Break the Sky, but have plans to seek out her entire catalog.  I know I am a bit old for the position – but I am now her total fan-girl.  Each paragraph held a treasure.  The story and characters were complex and beautifully written, yet easy to follow and adore. 

Ms. Lane’s writing is rich with texture and detail.  I could smell and taste the bacon, I could hear the rain and storms raging, I grew tense and upset when they did, I was exhausted when they were depleted, I let out my held breath when they breathed a sigh of relief.  I think I may even have been swaying while they danced… To say I was totally involved or captivated… sounds trite.  I was enthralled.  And I loved every minute of it!  Her love scenes were emotional and passionate, as well as sensual – which I adore.  Although Ms. Lane’s writing squeezed my heart and brought me to tears several times, this book was a delicious treat beginning to end.  I know I will be thinking and raving about this one for quite some time.

Turn up the heat. Turn it up again. Turn it up a third time, and pour in cupfuls of needs, wishes, wants, and desires that the hero and the heroine fulfill in each other. Toss in an adversary whom the couple must battle. Oh, and turn that heat up yet another few degrees. Bake for about 85,000 words and serve with a piping hot helping of true love and a dessert of happily-ever-after.
