Just one more can’t hurt…right?

Re-belle-ious, free-spirited Lauren Renwick has decided it’s time to trade her wings for roots. That means no more bad boys, no more foolish choices. Yet when she’s stood up on New Year’s Eve, her resolution to stick to her Mama’s Rules for Dating weakens. Especially when she spots sex-in-leather-and-tattoos, Jackson Sullivan.

One look at Lauren, and Jackson is hell-bent on getting her on the back of his Harley and riding straight for his bed. Their night together is an erotic rush that has a new word popping up on his horizon—forever. 

Lauren tries to convince herself he’s just one last fling to get bad boys out of her system, yet she finds herself falling hard and fast for a man with a stalker ex and a meddling Irish family. Plus, he has zero chance of passing her uptight parents’ inspection.

Jackson has Lauren’s back, but if she wants all of his heart, she’ll have to meet him halfway—by ditching rules that hold her prisoner, and learning to stand up for what she really wants.

My Review:

When I first read the synopsis I was intrigued with the story, not having read any of Harper Kincaid's works before I did not know what to expect. Needless to say, I was not as impressed with how events transpired throughout the book. The story itself had a lot of potential had it been a bit longer, I feel that the length of the book was too quick and everything got resolved too fast. I did liked the characters, especially Jackson Sullivan.

In Ruler Breaker, we meet Lauren Renwick, a free-spirited southerner who has been recently dumped by her boyfriend. Being New Year's Eve she decides to take the opportunity of a new start by making a list of things that her mother has been telling her to look for in a man if she wants to settle down. Having stumbled upon a bar, she goes in only to find everyone starting at her, but when a handsome motorcycle guy walks up to her and asks for her name, Lauren knows that she is in big trouble.
It only took Jackson one look at Lauren to know that she was meant for him. As the bar owner, he is used to having people come and go, and for women throw themselves at him, but the minute he spots Lauren coming in he sees that she might be the perfect woman for him. Now he has to convince her that he is the right guy for her and they might just deserve the chance to have a fresh start. With unexpected events coming their way, they learn to trust each other, and move on.

There were a couple of things that I liked about the story, one of them being Jackson's personality. He is protective and caring towards the ones he loves, and Lauren gets to see that right away. The drawback is that he is a bit overly possessive that gets him in trouble with Lauren. But he did redeemed himself when he stood up for Lauren when her parents started questioning her decisions and her love life. The ending was great too, but I would have liked to have a read a bit more of Lauren's interactions with Jackson's family. As I stated before, the story was short and everything got resolved too fast. There wasn't a slow and continuous pace for me to enjoy their story. Overall, if you like quick-to-resolve type of stories then I would recommend this book, it was not my favorite, but I will be reading more from the author. :)

My Rating: 


A woman with the heart of a revolutionary,
The mind of a pragmatist,
And the inappropriate humor of your tipsy BFF...

Born in California and raised in South Florida, I've moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on my head ever since. Along the way, I've worked as a community organizer, a professional matchmaker, an art teacher, a popular blogger, and a crisis counselor (to name a few). All the while, longing to have the guts and follow-through to do what I really wanted: to write and become a published author. That wish has finally come true and I am tickled pink with glitter over this good piece of fortune.

What else? Hmm...I love indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl, wearing black because it's slimming, the theater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds),and making those close to me laugh 'til they snort. I'm a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but have now happily settled in the cutest lil' town, Vienna, Virginia. I totally love hearing from readers so stalk me via social media or email me at!

Thanks for stopping by! :)
