Review: Break the Sky by Nina Lane

A sizzling hot, new SPIRAL OF BLISS spin-off novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nina Lane 

“Do you ever let go, storm girl?” he asked. “Ever lose control? Ever surrender?” 
“Never,” I whispered. “I never surrender.” 
A smile of both promise and warning curved his beautiful mouth. 
“You will.” 

Atmospheric scientist Kelsey March is under siege. Her tornado research project is on the skids and she’s fighting conflict in her university department. So when irresistible bad boy Archer West suggests a hot, wild fling while he’s in town, Kelsey is unable to resist his sexy offer. 

Kelsey and Archer embark on a intense, exhilarating affair. But soon their differences and private battles encroach on their desire, and Kelsey discovers that Archer is a storm she can’t control.

Let me start by saying that I have read a couple of Nina's books in the past, and I enjoyed them.  So when I agreed to read this, I was expecting the same quality as her other books... I am a little disappointed in this book.

To be honest, it just didn't do anything for me.  I was more annoyed throughout the book than anything.  I couldn't connect with the characters.  The story-line was so-so.  Not quite original but had its own originality in it.

I have found myself disliking the "strong alpha-male" these days.  They are over done.  They are annoying.  I find myself irritated with these characters than anything.  Now, I am sure many may disagree and feel the opposite as I.

Now Kelsey?  I did not like her.  I repeat, I did not like her.  She was bitchy and stuck-up.  She seemed like such a made-up character.  I like characters that seem real.  She didn't seem real.

Putting all of that aside, the book it a good book.  I can see where many enjoy it.  My not liking the book as much as I expected is due to my personal taste.  If you through my personal taste aside and look at the writing itself, you will have a good book.  Nina always writes well.  If you are looking for that alpha male book, this is definitely a book for you.  If you aren't, I wouldn't suggest reading it.
