Review for Break Me Slowly by Joya Ryan
Let me just start by saying that I really wanted to fall head over heels in love with this book and I seriously hate giving negative reviews. I was intrigued by the storyline because it reminded me of my faves (Fifty Shades, The Crossfire series and The Blackstone Affair) but it didn't exactly deliver. It kind of felt like something was missing and I didn't really feel attached to the characters. While I can totally appreciate the fact that it was very fast paced (because I lack patience sometimes), it just felt too rushed and certain situations/conversations seemed to come out of no where. Maybe if it was longer some extra fluff could have been thrown in there to fill in the gaps. It also seemed a little too similar to the books I mentioned before, kind of lacked originality. I did however love the main male character Adam. He was the epitome of what an alpha male should be, although sometimes he just crossed the line and needed to be slapped. And there were definitely some pretty steamy scenes that blew me away. So all in all it wasn't a bad read by any means, but it just didn't meet my expectations when compared to similar books in its genre.
