Breaking up is hard to do
"Breaking the Rules" by Melinda Curtis is a break-up/getting back together novella about Jack, an NBA team owner, and Viv, his angry, capable soon to be ex-wife. Viv has finally gotten Jack to sign the divorce papers, claiming that he doesn't love her. However, Jack has cooked up some plans of his own. He has locked the two of them in a safe room for a 12 hour "cooling period". This novella is a quick and sexy read. There is some steaminess. Not too much so that it gets uncomfortable to read, but you wouldn't want your preteen to get a hold of the book either. The writing is good, the sex is good, the romance is good. The only bad part is that Jack falls while in the safe room and re-injures his spine leaving him temporarily paralyzed. The weird part is that the whole time Viv can't get sex off of her mind. I'd be freaking out myself. I might have left that part out or explained it a little better. However, as far as romances go, I'd give it a whirl if I were you. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest interview from The Sweet Team.
