Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway for Breaking Shaun by E.M. Abel

Breaking Shaun
by E.M. Abel
Released on: May 26th 2014

 Some men fall in love and hand their balls over to the first woman who keeps them interested—but not me. Surfing and my freedom are the only two things I’ve ever needed. Meaningless one-night stands are fun, but the drama and jealousy that follows them aren’t worth it. 
Until I met Natalie, I never realized there were women who thought like me. She enjoys sex with no strings, and with a body like that, there isn’t a man around who doesn’t want a piece of her—including me. 
But our friends and relatives all run in the same circles. And we all know friendship and sex leave a mess. Hearts always end up broken. 
I know it. 
But I still want her. 

Sometimes, the things we want don’t always come easily. Every choice, every action has consequences that can change you. 
They can change everything. 
And no matter how fiercely guarded, even the strongest hearts can break.

**WARNING** Not recommended for younger readers due to sexual content, language and recreational use of marijuana.


REVIEW -mature content reader discretion is advised.
Genre: Contemporary Romance

When two people looking to remain unattached become friends with benefits things start off good. The sex is great, their chemistry is off the charts and neither holds expectations for the other. But what happens when feelings take root and life hits you with a wave so strong it knocks you down…leaving you breathless. Do you get back on the board and try again or do you throw in the towel and give up? This is the dilemma Shaun and Natalie find themselves in.

In Freeing Asia readers met Shaun, Asia’s big brother. Shaun is a ladies man and the ladies are happy getting served a slice of whatever he has to offer. Hot sex-no strings. When Shaun meets Natalie he has no clue that she is practically a female version of him.
Confidant, sexy and adventurous.

Recently making the three day move from California to Virginia needing a change, Natalie finds that she gets restless in one place after a few years. She is a true product of the lifestyle her mother created in her youth by moving from place to place often. Now living with her cousin Nick it places her on the same coast as her little sister now residing in New York.

 Running in to Mr. Green eyes (Shaun) on her first day after settling in almost seems like fate. Well, at least for me it was, my brain runs on the same channel SRM-sappy romance mode. The fact is there was no way these two could have avoided each other they run in the same circle of friends so eventually their paths would cross.

How she evades Shaun’s advances when they first meet is beyond me because the guy exudes a raw sexuality that makes you want to jump his bones. His presence seems to make her nervous which is not the norm for her.

‘I never got nervous around guys. If anything, it was the other way around, and that was how I liked it. I had the pussy, which meant I called the shots. Sure, men liked to think they were in charge, and sometimes, I’d let them. It was easier that way. I’d play the role, smile and flutter my eyelashes, but I also had no problem telling men what I wanted and taking it. Men’s egos were a lot like their dicks , always needing to be stroked. As long as they kept me satisfied, I didn’t mind doing it.’

Natalie is not looking for a commitment so of course getting to know Shaun and finding out that they share like minds on this subject is like hitting the jackpot. He’s hot as hell, has a great personality and is down for whatever. JACKPOT!

When these two hook up…

‘Turning her around, I pressed her back against the wall and took her bikini off. Then, I got down on my knees. The water was hitting my back, and it was still cold, but I didn’t give a shit. I had to taste her again. I lifted Natalie’s leg up over my shoulder, and she gasped when she felt my breath against her. My tongue came out and slowly grazed over her wet, swollen pussy. Damn, she tastes so good. I let my tongue stop on her clit, and I slowly flicked it a few times.’

‘I was an addict, and her body was quickly becoming my drug of choice.’ -Shaun

The lines start to blur between friends. Could this be more then just a sexual relationship? As Shaun begins to realize the strong feelings he holds for Natalie a wave comes and takes him under.

…my life felt suspended in midair, and as much as I wanted to fly, I always found myself preparing for the fall.   -Natalie

My Thoughts
E.M. Abel has a writing style that I enjoy to read. She provides a realistic storyline with imperfect characters; with just the right dose of sex and a heavy tug at my heart leaving me a bit emotional. Breaking Shaun was a solid 4 STAR read for me.
I need Jay’s book like..NOW! I am eager for him I loved him in Freeing Asia and getting a piece of him in Breaking Shaun was not enough I NEED MORE!

My Ratings
Characters- Lovable, Hot as HELL
Writing Style-Approving…my desired cup of tea
Plot/Storyline- A guy and girl becomes friends with benefits only to discover they each want more. Shocking news places their future together in jeopardy.  
Steam Factor- HIGH/VERY STEAMY On a scale of 1-10 I say 8.5
Entertainment Level- From Lo-Med-Hi I say High it kept my rapt attention and had some great laugh out loud moments
Overall- I loved it! Read it!

Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it!

“Come with me.” She said as she turned around and went back downstairs.
I followed her into the laundry room where she opened the dryer and took her stuff out. I was too busy staring at her bare ass to realize what she was about to make me do.
“I want you to put this on.” She said, her little black bikini dangling from her fingertips.
I started shaking my head.
“Oh, hell no.”
Natalie’s face got serious and she put her hand on her hip.
“A bet’s a bet. Don’t be a pussy.”
My eyebrows shot up and I gave her a challenging look.
“You better remember this shit later. Those words will come back to haunt you, trust me.”
She smiled as I snatched the scraps of fabric from her hand and tried to figure out how they went. When I got the bottom straight I held it up between us.
“My dick is gonna hang out of this shit.” I said as I moved it in front of my crotch.
Natalie was laughing now and I smiled when I saw how red her face was getting.
“You better hurry up before the pizza gets here.”
I groaned and pushed my board shorts down around my ankles. Natalie kept laughing as she watched me try to get my big feet into the foot holes and pull the bikini bottoms up. They were fucking tiny, my junk was hanging out everywhere.
“Here, let me help you.” She said as she came closer and put her hand on my dick.
“That…is not going to help.”
“Ssshh” she hushed me as she tried tucking my dick into the fabric but her touch was only making it worse.
I could feel myself getting hard.
               “Okay fine!” she said, giving up.   
“Just put the top on. But when the delivery guy gets here I want you to keep a straight face the entire time and ask him if he thinks this color looks good on you.”
Natalie was laughing again before she even finished her sentence. She seemed so young as she covered her mouth like what we were doing was so bad. It was cute to see her having so much fun. I also loved watching her move around in that short dress. Her nipples were hard and her tits were bouncing around a lot.
Baseball. Baseball. Baseball.
               I put my board shorts back on and Natalie helped me tie her bikini top over my chest. It looked so stupid but I made it work. Natalie had fun playing with my hair and swooping it to the side over my forehead. I looked like a manly version of Justin Bieber. It was ridiculous. 

My husband is awesome and also a Chief in the US Navy. This means crazy schedules, uncertainty and lots of nights spent alone writing on my computer.
I have two amazing kids who always know how to make me laugh.
I've been passionate about writing since I wrote my first poem in the 3rd grade and I've been using it as a means to express myself since.
I think because I hold my emotions so close and fear being vulnerable I use different forms of self expression- writing, drawing, painting, photography, tattoos- to show the world who I am.

The one rule I use everyday is the Golden Rule--"Treat others the way you'd like to be treated." I believe karma is very real and sometimes she can be a bitch if you make her that way.
I love acting crazy, I love to laugh, I love making people laugh, I love the ocean, I love dancing like no one is watching, I love good music, I love good books... oh man I should probably stop there. I love a lot of stuff.
