Blog Tour & Giveaway: Break Me [Shattered 01] by Jo-Anna Walker!

Publication date: 1st August 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4.5 stars
Synopsis: Running is always easier.

Tori McLeod moved to the big city to get away from her mother—and her past. Her new routine is destroyed when she meets a mysterious stranger who won’t take no for an answer. Sebastian intrigues her, but his eyes hold secrets she would rather avoid.

Sebastian Chelios, a hard as nails enforcer, is a new-in-town loner.

Sebastian has to have her. Control her. Possess her. But he can’t—won’t lose control, even though Tori’s innocence fascinates him. The last thing he’s going to do is love her, even after he gets her in his bed.

Losing control is dangerous, especially when someone from Sebastian’s past covets Tori, putting more than just her heart in danger.

How can Sebastian protect Tori from Jose’s sadistic obsession? If he gets his hands on her, will she make it out in one piece?

I'll be honest and say that I was torn between reviewing and doing a promo post for this Blog Tour as I wasn't sure if I was really going to enjoy this book, but I'll hold my hand up and say that I'm so happy I ended up picking to review it! This book was amazing! It really surprised me! This book is definitely an 18+ book though! It has some scenes that definitely aren't appropriate for anyone under that age to read! The plot was amazing, but it was full of sex! No joke! I didn't really see much plot development until about the last 20% which is where the plot just exploded and everything that you had been waiting for happened in that space of time! It was brilliant! I think this book is the first book I've read that's really done that! The plot blew me away! I will admit that one particular scene near the end did have me fearing for the main character and I was quite surprised that it was in there! I didn't really think that it would have went that far, but I guess you never know what some people are capable of! I did think the plot was a little strange! I haven't really read another book with the same kind of plot as this book had, so I kind of didn't really know what to expect! The characters were amazing! Tori was the main character and I loved her! She was just an average person who was basically in the wrong place at the wrong time! She had a bit of spunk to her that came out at several points in the book and I loved that she stood up for herself! My heart went out to Tori at several points in this book and I actually cried at the end for her! She went through quite a journey in this book, but she was an amazing character! Sebastian was the love interest of Tori and he was smoking hot! He made me swoon! He was so possessive of Tori that it kind of made me love him even more considering the situation they were in! Sebastian and Tori had so much sexual tension when they were around each other! It was like they were on fire! It was explosive! I loved them as a couple! Jose was such a creep! I'm not even going to lie! He was the villain in this book and I just wanted to punch him! He infuriated me and what he did to Tori was disgusting and vile! The ending of this book leaves so much unanswered! It makes you question everything that you've just read! It was so weird! I definitely won't ruin it for you though by telling you what happens though! I will definitely continue reading this series! Break Me surprised me and I really enjoyed it! I'm looking forward to reading the next book and seeing where it'll go especially after the ending to this book! The cover is also hot! It definitely suits the book! The models on the front are how I pictured Tori and Sebastian while reading the book! Big thank you to Jo-Anna for an ARC of Break Me and to Brenda from Twinsie Talk Tours for having me on the Blog Tour!
