“Lora Leigh can write a sex scene like no other! If you are looking for heat, then prepare to be burned…” ~Under the Covers
Rule Breaker has been the reluctant breed. He swore he would never take a mate and run far away from Mating Heat as possible after seeing her mother dissected by scientists that were trying to understand that phenomena. He’s always extremely cautious when he’s around a female, and he’s been extra cautious around Gypsy. He’s known her since she was 15 and he rescued her from a Coyote Breed that almost raped and killed her, but who did take her brother’s life. He’s been secretly watching over her since.
I’ve had a fascination with Jonas’s men for a while. Probably because to work for that ruthless man you must be pretty damn kick ass yourself. And just as I enjoyed LAWE’S JUSTICE, I enjoyed RULE BREAKER quite well. I still don’t think this series has recaptured the interest that I had in the earlier books, but the stories are sort of more complex now and I think we finally got some answers (even if it felt in a rushed way) in RULE BREAKER.
As for his mate, Gypsy…Well she was just ok for me. I liked the fact that she was fierce enough to try and spy and gather info and do the things she was secretly doing while covering it up as being a party girl. Not a wilting flower for sure, but yet again, a virgin heroine by Ms. Leigh.
But when it comes to the sexual chemistry between Gypsy and Rule, well…. Lora Leigh can write a sex scene like no other! If you are looking for heat, then prepare to be burned because Rule and Gypsy are hot!
There are so many other elements to this story that were of interest to me though, the side characters especially. I kept wanting glances of Dog and… Dane. Dane, my love, you broke my heart. From what I’ve seen he’s not supposed to get his own book, but he needs an HEA. Please! And then there was a brief moment of Cassie and a different side of her life we don’t usually get to see. My heart broke for her as well and the life she’s had to lead.
When I talk about side characters I can’t leave out Gideon! Who he is, what he’s done. I can’t wait to delve deeper into all that and keep discovering new things about him.
This book filled with a lot of unnecessary information though. Things were dragged on and excessive detail was given were it wasn’t really needed. It might’ve been cut by at least a third and maintained the story going.
Although I don’t think this is the strongest book in the series, it was a great stepping stone for what’s to come and to close out some older chapters that have been lingering around for a bit too long. I’m actually excited to see what comes next.
