Publisher's Summary

Knox Bauer's life has unraveled to the point of no return. Fighting to fill the emptiness inside himself, he seeks solace in unfamiliar beds with unfamiliar women. As guardian to his three younger brothers, he can't seem to do a thing right. But this can't go on...they look up to him in every way and all he's done lately is prove how messed up he really is. Needing a change, he attends a local sex addict’s anonymous meeting, where he finds himself tempted by the alluring instructor, McKenna. Twenty-one-year-old McKenna is trying to make amends. After losing her parents in a horrific accident, she knows if she can just be good enough, maybe she can forgive herself for what happened. With her newly acquired degree in counseling, she begins leading a sex addicts group where she meets the troubled Knox and her life takes on complications she never bargained for. She doesn't have time for a bad boy who only wants to take her to bed, even if her body disagrees. The fixer in her wants to help, but trusting Knox's true motivations might take more courage than she has.

Narration made it tough

Tough to follow. The narration was a problem. JG has a great voice but he doesn't do a good job with the two main characters. If there were not a break between chapters announcing the character the chapter was primary. If not paying attention or pulled away it was hard to get back into the story until the next chapter

Addictions addictions

Would you consider the audio edition of When I Break (Volume 1) to be better than the print version?


What other book might you compare When I Break (Volume 1) to and why?

Two books, Lead Me Not by Meredith Walters and The Thrill of It by Lauren Blakely. Both books are about addictions, Lead Me Not was about Drug Addiction and The Thrill of It was about Sex and Love Addiction. Books about addictions are intense and despite me not wanting to fall in love with the characters, i just cant help it.

What about Josh Goodman’s performance did you like?

I liked his voice. It's male and strong and sexy. But he doesnt show much emotion in it.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Every one has a addiction

Any additional comments?

I really enjoy the book. The plot was good, the characters were complex and hard not to love. I like how mature McKenna is, and i totally relate to her about how she express her feelings and emotions. I like Knox with his family, he works hard to make his brothers happy and to keep them safe but sadly he lose himself into buzz and sex. I really think McKenna and Knox would make their life better. Their connection is so strong and I'm sure that will def help them. But..... Things among addictions arent easy... I cant wait to read/listent to the next book.
