ARC Review: Almost Broken Up by A.O. Peart

ebook, 157 pages
Expected publication: January 21st 2014 

How far would you go to protect the one you love?

Edge-of-the-seat suspense and zany wit are key elements of this comedy-mystery that combines crime and mayhem with romance and humor.

The terrors of Colin’s past are revealed and accepted by Natalie. Her doubts about letting him into her life are finally disbanded and replaced by a sense of security and commitment. But Natalie doesn’t know that Colin’s past hides more dark secrets unknown even to him.

When a delusional psychopath threatens Colin’s life, things quickly become complicated. Natalie’s stubborn character and desire to kick ass won’t let her step aside and allow the authorities to handle the danger. She gets herself tangled up with street hoodlums, befriends a Russian mobster’s high-maintenance girlfriend, and becomes expert at picking locks and hiding evidence.


This contemporary romantic comedy/mystery blends humor and sensuality with enough thriller elements to make you clutch the pages with terror. The offbeat characters and witty dialogue from Almost Matched are here to stay.

**Warning: contains sexual situations, profanity, and a high dose of sarcasm. Oh, and the appletini is still the drink of choice.
May not be appropriate for readers under 18 years old. Not intended for prigs and sourpusses who get easily affronted**

This was a very well written story.  Got a little crazy and far-fetched for a bit, but it was all good.  That far-fetched section made for great humor in the book and lightened up the story.
This book again features Natalie and and Colin.  Although, this book is most Natalie and little Colin.  We only see Ali and a grimace of Jena, Natalie's friends, but we meet a new character Svetlana.  I liked Svetlana, she was quite the character.  When Natalie and Colin are together, its all sex.  And its hot.  Although Ms. Peart is new to this genre, she does an amazing job with the sex scenes!!!!
Ms. Peart had me very captured from Chapter one all the way through to the end.  I didn't even realize I was at the end, until I read the words "The End" and my screen wouldn't move to the next page!!
This is the second book in the series, I have enjoyed both books; this is shaping up to be a great series!  Although, I don't think the title matches the book.
I was given this ARC in exchange for a honest review.
