Breaking Free (South River University #3) by Isabel Lucero

Release Date: July 15

Add to Goodreads:




At a party on a rival college campus, I drunkenly stumble into a bathroom just as a tall, muscular man steps out of the shower…naked.

Instead of fleeing, I stay put and end up having the hottest bathroom hookup with someone whose name I don’t know. Because I’m still in the closet, I don’t talk about what happened that night, glad that it was with a guy who doesn’t live in the same town. But come Monday morning, the naked man from the bathroom strolls into the locker room and locks eyes with me.

His name is Dominic and he’s new to campus and trying to take my spot on the team, which makes me hate him. It’s too bad I loved everything he said and did to me the night we met, but I can’t let him get to me with his cocky smirks and filthy words. I have to focus on keeping my position on the team, but I can only think about the positions I want to be in with him.

He’s arrogant where I’m modest. I’m docile where he’s domineering. We’re complete opposites, so it could never work, but being with him makes me want to break free from the chains that have kept me in the closet, because he’s also the firm hand to my wavering confidence and I’m the moth drawn to his flame.

5 Stars

I was highly anticipating this book and I wasn’t disappointed. We met Trevor in the first book, Stealing Ronan, and got a sneak peek into a few things. It wasn’t enough to ruin anything, but it was enough to get me antsy to read his story. That said, I feel like you can read this book without reading the others, but there are a few spoilers from book two, at the beginning of this book. The storyline completely stands on its own here, though.
This was just as well written as the first book. It quickly draws you in and engages you, making it hard to put down. The characters’ dimensions are incredible and you will find yourself pulling for both main characters and side characters alike.
This is a series you won’t want to miss out on. It’s just that good. Book two is MF, but if that’s not your thing, you can easily skip it. It will not hinder you in any way. However, the author is really good at telling a story, so if you read across the genres, go for it. You won’t want to miss out on this book, though. The chemistry between Trevor and Dominic alone makes it worth reading.
