working on the house all day Sunday, I called Kelsey the following
morning. I had a limited time with her. I wasn’t going to waste it
by dragging things out. Especially now that I’d had a taste of her
explosive heat. A taste of the fire that melted all her ice. “Hello?”
Her voice was scotch and honey.

I’m in my office.”

Now she sounded intrigued. “Are you wearing a tool belt?”

She almost sounded surprised. “I haven’t.”

If you loved Nina’s Spiral of Bliss Series, you will fall in love even more with Break the Sky.
I have loved Kelsey from the first time we met her back in Arouse. She is sassy, smart, and is everything a strong woman should be.
Archer West is his brother Dean’s polar opposite. Dean is successful, Archer floats from job to job. Dean has a family, Archer has no one. Dean found true love, Archer found……..well, here the brother’s may be more alike than they seem.
Kelsey and Archer’s chemistry is off the charts. I love them more together than I do apart. They bring out the best in each other and challenge one another in ways that they need to be challenged. Kelsey appears to have it all together but what she truly has is the desire to prove everyone wrong about her. Being a woman in her field is tough. Being taken seriously in the academic world doing what she does, is even tougher. I have always gotten the sense there is more brewing under Kelsey’s cool exterior. She has a wild streak that she tries to tame and by doing so, she lost her true self along the way somewhere. Then she met Archer.
Archer is bad boy personified. He is everything Kelsey shouldn’t want. Then why did she agree to a wild fling while he was in town? Because a small part of her wants to let go. She wants to be free, and Archer is perfect. He won’t be in town long, no commitment and no time to fall in love.
Archer has gone his whole life living in his brother’s shadow. He has always thought of himself as the black sheep of the family and didn’t do a damn thing to change it either. Archer is a paradox of emotions. He is restless yet when he sees what Dean has, he yearns for more. He is a love ’em and leave ’em kind of guy but yet can’t stay away from Kelsey. He doesn’t let anyone know the real him, but draws Kelsey out of the shell she built around herself and in the meantime, finds himself as well.
Break the Sky is a phenomenal story of finding yourself. It is a story of letting go of preconceived notions and remaining true to what you believe in. It’s a story of finding the best things when you least expect it and knowing sometimes, you have to ride the storm to find the calm on the other side. It shows you that by taking risks, you free yourself from any limits you may have set.
This by far, is one of my top reads of 2014. Good on ya, Nina. I hope we haven’t seen the last of Storm Girl and Archer.
