*Review* Clean Break by Lisa Suzanne

Genre: Erotic Romance
Published: October 26, 2017
Pages: 206

After two brothers shatter her world, Reese Brady escapes to her old life. She occupies herself with work and friends in an attempt to find comfort after her catastrophic summer. 

When Reese receives a desperate call from someone she thought she’d never hear from again, she’s forced to confront the love she could’ve had. She has to decide between saving the man who broke her heart or moving on without him.

Will Reese get her clean break, or will she be forced back into everything she’s trying to escape?

I was hired to proofread this book. The only aspects of the story that I influenced were the spelling and grammar. If you feel that my connection to the story makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review. 

This is the third and final book in the series, and book two ended on a really tense note. A note that made me think I might get my wish for Reese to just say good riddance to both brothers and move on with her life. And I was almost okay with that, except I still really wanted her to end up with Mark because they were so perfect together. So I had conflicted feelings about the start of this book, almost like a love/hate relationship. 

I think it was pretty clear that Reese couldn't/wouldn't be done with the Fox brothers completely though (otherwise why have the book, right?) But it was anything but clear where those relationships would ultimately go. I was really quite anxious about how a few big events would play out between Reese and the Fox family, and how she would handle things in general. 

I did have one kind of big complaint about the book though. I was ready for it to be done at about 60%. See, that's the point where pretty much all of the major conflicts were resolved, and everything after it just felt like it was feel-good fluff. And I'm not opposed to feel good fluff, exactly, but I was worried that there would be more shoes dropping, and I was just so ready for Reese to have her happy ending. I would have personally enjoyed the book more if the last 40% had been condensed into an epilogue. The emotional roller coaster just lasted a little too long for me. 

Overall I give Clean Break 3.976 stars. - Katie
