Blog Tour and Giveaway: Break Away by Ellie Grace

~ Synopsis ~

When Olivia Mason catches her fiancé cheating, her life gets turned upside down. With no family and no real place to call home, she heads south for a fresh start in Charleston, South Carolina. Determined to gain her own independence and protect her heart, the last thing she needs is a sexy, tattoo-covered guy to cross her path and test her resolve. Just as she’s beginning to put her life back together, she uncovers a piece of her past that shakes up everything.

Dex Porter has his own demons. A former Marine, he’s haunted by the past and uses whiskey, women and fighting to drown the pain and guilt that consume him. When Olivia arrives in town, he finds himself drawn to her immediately and is surprised by his desire to get to know her. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever met but he knows he can’t get close to her without exposing the part of himself that he keeps hidden.

As Dex and Olivia strike up a friendship and fight their attraction to one another, they begin to chip away each other’s walls and help each other heal. However, the past is never far behind and they soon learn that no matter how fast they run, it will always catch up with them.

5 Star Review

WOW this book was Ah-Mazing!!!   I couldn't put it down once I started. 

Olivia is struggling to be on her own. She left her ex-fiancé Stephan after she walked in on him with another woman.  She decides to go to South Carolina.  She went there with her best friend Nora from college and loved it there.  She needs a place to stay and a job.  That is her main focus.  She couldn't believe how cocky and how big an ass Dex was the first time they met.  She wanted nothing to do with him, but her body was pulled towards him.  She doesn't want him because she knows he is a heartbreaker and she just can't handle that again.  Will she be the one to change Dex? Or does she move on to someone who is ready to settle down?

Dex is just going through the motions of living. He is the shell of the man he use to be.  Every since losing his best friend he doesn't want to live.  He feels so much guilt that it is eating him alive.  He doesn't want to get help for his PTSD.  He is instantly attracted to Olivia, but doesn't understand why she won't be with him since he knows she is attracted to him.  Will he continue his man whore ways? Or will he convince her to open up to him and become a one woman man?

This book can definitely be read as a stand alone.  Though we read about Nora and Jake in This Time Around it is not mandatory to read it first.  Though you will want to read because you will fall in love with all these characters!!!
