Review: Slate (Breaking the Declan Brothers) by Kelly Gendron

SlateDescription: “Some boys will keep it, some will break it, and some boys, they just won’t want it. You gotta be careful who you give your heart to…” Slate Declan

First loves, we all got them. Mine is Slate Declan. He was kind, gentle, and caring. Still, he managed to break my heart. So I put miles between us, and eventually, my heart healed.
I haven’t seen Slate in years, but a couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. While I’m visiting my hometown, I’m going to look up Slate Declan. And I plan to break his heart, just as he did mine. I’ll remind him of what he has lost, and then I’ll prove to him that I’ve moved on.
It should be real easy, right?
Well, let me tell you, Slate Declan is not the same guy that I left behind. And there’s another problem. How do you break someone’s heart when they no longer have one?

Rating: 3/5 Stars

Cover: I love it although the way Slate is pictured here, is a little bit deceiving.

Review: This book contains two parts in my eyes. The erotic part is very well done and if that would have been the whole book, the star rating would have been 5.

Sadly (in this case) there is a story behind the sex. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the flashbacks to the characters’ childhood and how they fell in love. Their present is the thing I have a problem with. Rayna isn’t consistent in her personality and actions. She wants Slate, she doesn’t want him, she wants sex, no she doesn’t, yes she does too… She keeps switching from blushing virgin to sex-crazed kitten and back with no reason. And the way Slate’s drug addiction was done? She forces him to go cold turkey and three days later he is ‘healed’. No cravings anymore, no struggling…. it’s a miracle! Apparently you only need sex while you’re in withdrawal (how did he do it?! That didn’t make sense to me) and everything is fine.

Still, if you like romance series with changing main characters, this is the book/series for you! The other two novels deal with Slate’s brothers.

You can buy it here.

I was provided via NetGalley with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
