He wanted her to leave him, but, in the end, he was forced to do it.

Separating himself from Lila puts Nathan in a level of hell he never knew existed. The journey is a spiraling decent where the beast inside is released and havoc reigns in the arena of self-destruction.

But what is he to do? It was for the best, after all.

The last three chapters of Breach from Nathan’s point of view.

Dissolution was a quick read but well worth the time. This little glimpse inside Nathan’s head – seeing how he felt after what he did to Lila – was enlightening. Understanding dawned over why he felt the need to act the way he did – especially considering how strong his feelings are – but I agreed with what Andrew and Caroline did. It was cowardly no matter the good intentions behind his actions. However, seeing Nathan’s pain and how he reacted at the end, I’m eager to see if he can redeem himself in Lila’s eyes…and mine. Onto Infraction.

Waking up in the hospital after a terrible car crash, Lila has a long road of recovery ahead of her. More than just her body, she must recover her heart after an altering declaration by Nathan. With all that happened between them she must chose to forgive him and take him back, or sever all ties. Nathan has a hard road ahead of him to earn back her trust, and doing so will open her up to the possibility of being hurt again. A possibility Lila doesn’t think she can survive. The secrets Nathan keeps buried, hidden from the world, of the life he used to lead are revealed. They tell the horror of what caused the scars on his body, mind, and heart. Can Lila and Nathan push through all of the obstacles in front of them? Will the journey be their healing, or their destruction?

Although Infraction didn’t pack quite the punch of Breach, I enjoyed having the front row seat as Nathan and Lila sorted things and moved forward…for the most part.

Infraction picks up right where Breach left off. I liked how Ms. Lynn kept things moving chronologically as it made sense with the story flow. This installment sees Nathan and Lila trying to recover from the events in the first novel, dealing with the consequences and fall out. I also liked how Ms. Lynn conveyed these steps in Nathan and Lila’s relationship. It was a genuine progression, something they had to navigate to be able to move forward. But it did get tedious on occasion – even, seemingly, to Ms. Lynn as the prose illustrated with words like “the day passed by.” Nathan and Lila had to overcome yet another hurdle when Lila suffers another trauma and I was left wondering just how much they were going to have to endure. However, as this hurdle was overcome, there was a return to the snarky and sexy banter between Nathan and Lila which reignited my interest.

I’m eager for Reciprocity as I hope things continue on a happy path for Nathan and Lila. I know there is something lurking, some danger they’ll have to face. But I hope Ms. Lynn keeps the interactions between Nathan and Lila consistent because that’s what keeps me engaged…knowing they’ll survive whatever is thrown their way.

  1. These tear them down and build them up series can really do a number on my heart in a good way if done right. Glad she took the right approach with Nathan’s issues and then the rate of bringing them back together.

    Great reviews, Brandee!

  2. Wonderful double review. These kind of stories really need to be done right, and I usually like it more when the book is told with both character POV rather than just one, and I am glad that Dissolution gives the readers his side of things. I will say that I am not a fan of books where it seems like the author is running out ways to develop the characters or story further which is what seeing “the day passed by” would indicate to me. However, I am glad you enjoyed these and I might have to give them a try too. 🙂

  3. OK – that first book sounds like it could break a gal. LOL I’m sorry the second one slowed down for you (and maybe for the author?) but I’m glad it kept you hooked enough that you’re looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Great reviews! 🙂
