Blog Tour & Giveaway: Breaking the Rules by L K Lewis

I received a copy of Breaking the Rules in exchange for my review.

When Morgan starts her first ever job at Baylor industries the last thing she expects is that handsome boss, Drake Baylor Jr, will come into her life and sweep her off her feet. Drake has been set certain rules by his father that he has to follow in order to keep his job; no drugs, no drink and no women. But the connection between Drake and Morgan is undeniable, so much so that they decide to break the rules well and truly and have a secret relationship.

I really enjoyed the start of this book, and the ending (and by that I'm meaning the beginning and end third). The only problem really was that middle bit, around where Drake and Morgan are getting together. It just seemed as if the pair of them were very wordy about their feelings to the extent where it was almost unbelievable. Though once they were over that stage it settled down and I went back to enjoying the romance.

Morgan was an interesting character. She had been groomed her whole life to become a trophy wife and didn't actually want to conform, instead wanting her own career. There were actually several moments where I couldn't help but think "GO Morgan" because she stood up to someone about something she cared about. And that even included standing up to Drake.

Though their relationship was a bit wordy there was one major positive to it that I loved, and wished more romance authors took into account. This really was a relationship of two equals. I'm not talking about money so much, though they did decide that both of their careers were important, but it was the little things like Drake wasn't the only one doing things for Morgan, she did things for him to (and I'm not talking about sex there). It was both refreshing and realistic.

Though I was a bit iffy on the middle portion, I am actually really excited to read the next book, Bending the Rules, particularly after the ending of Breaking the Rules. I can't really explain why that is! Maybe I will after reading it!



Bending the Rules by L.K. Lewis
(Breaking the Rules #2)
Publication date: April 1st 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:
“Drake isn’t just someone I love, he’s the one I love the most in this world. He’s my best friend, my breath, my everything. I realize in this moment that the true reason I’m on this journey to find Drake is not just because I miss him and want him back, I’m also missing a huge part of me. Until we’re together again, my life isn’t complete. Without him I’m not whole.”-Morgan

“… I’m so sorry I couldn’t go to you. It was nearly impossible not to but Morgan we wouldn’t be standing here right now if I had. You found me Baby. When you met me on your first day at Baylor what seems like a lifetime ago you found me. Only this time I’m not letting you go.”-Drake

Struggling to get her life back on track after being left suddenly and inexplicably by (secret) boyfriend –not- boyfriend and boss Drake Baylor Jr., Morgan Lane searches the globe to find Drake knowing that the only way to truly live the life she’s worked so hard for is with him by her side.

Banished to Zurich, Switzerland by his father after being caught Breaking the Rules, Drake has nine months to get the European Division of Baylor Industries back on track. Again, he must obey the rules so that he can hopefully return to his life with Morgan and take the helm of Baylor Industries.

Everything is going according to plan as usual for Adrian Thompson who has just gotten Drake banished to Switzerland as part of his plan to get Morgan (his college sweetheart and hopefully future trophy wife) back in his life for good. With a little help from Lana Lane, Morgan’s mother, Adrian is hoping to have Morgan wearing his ring by New Year’s Eve.

After a few months of being wooed by old flame and now boss Adrian, and without so much as a word from Drake, Morgan hesitantly accepts Adrian’s invitation to join him for New Year’s Eve in St.Moritz Switzerland. Foiling Adrian’s plan, a “chance encounter” finds Morgan back in Drake’s arms.

Will Drake and Morgan be able to overcome the distance and time that is now between them along with a few of the hurdles that life has thrown their way? Morgan and Drake are once again faced with figuring out how to start their new future together- this time not Breaking the Rules, only Bending them.
