Break My Bones by Rachael Tamayo

Amazon: US | UK | CA | AU

Genre: Psychological Thriller

Staring down the barrel of a loaded 9mm is a wake-up call, especially when it's your husband's finger on the trigger. Brooklyn James's only thought is to take her baby and run. It's better to end up on the streets than suffer one more day beneath her husband's hand. 

Finally back on her feet, Brooklyn is stronger, better prepared, and determined not to run. That is until she gets the call that her husband has been released from prison after serving his three years for DWI.

Cain James has his wife on his mind, always. With his friend Donovan at his side, anything is possible. He can find her, bring her home, make her love him again. While Cain has serious anger issues, Donovan is much worse. Cain can't control his friend's sick, twisted mind and even sicker actions.

Donovan has Cain's best interest at heart, and he'll do whatever it takes to help Cain bring his wife home -- including murder. After his time in prison, Cain doesn't want to hurt his wife again and becomes a man torn -- divided between the darkness inside him, his twisted love, and his lifelong protector, Donovan. 

As Cain tries to convince his wife that he's changed, he watches the bodies hit the floor one by one at the hands of his sidekick. Enraged by his estranged wife's new love and conflicted by his own anger and need to protect his family, Cain unravels.

He can't live without her, and he won't let her live without him.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Break My Bones is one of those pull you in and don't let go kind of books. And to top it off, it was totally predictable. It doesn't take long to figure out what's going on with Cain, and normally that would irritate me, but Racheal Tamayo does such a good job with the story that it didn't matter if I figured it out. The story was still just as good. Parts of it will break your heart, other parts will make your heart race. And it all comes together for a story I didn't want to put down. The only drawback for me was the romance. It just felt a little fast, and for a while I thought maybe there was going to be something - well, something other than what it was. Nevertheless, Brooklyn's turmoil and fear felt so real, and I even though I had the gist of it figured out, I had to see how it would all end for Cain and Brooklyn. The book is well-written, the pacing is good, and the story held my interest from start to finish.
