Breaking Spades Review + Giveaway

Cecille “CeCe” Cervetti lives her life by one rule: Never let a man control her heart, ever again.

CeCe has built a life to be proud of--she’s successful in business, and in lust. Men are her playground, to take from, and use to her body’s content. They can only have what she is willing to give, so don't try asking for more.

When an unknown stalker raises the stakes, ripping away her hard won control, CeCe reluctantly seeks help from the first, and last, man she gave her heart to before he vanished from her life--Jarod Gates.

As they struggle to unmask the stalker, CeCe and Jarod learn of each other’s scarred pasts—scars that made them who they are today. But when her body screams for Jarod’s touch, can CeCe manage to keep her control? Or will Jarod make her question the one rule she’s built her life on?

I am such a huge fan of Wendy and her Hamden series and this one definitely cemented my love. Wendy has come up with stories that each person can relate to in some way and I love her writing style plus her imagination is pretty awesome. This is the fourth book in her series and my favorite by far, which is crazy considering how much I love her others. If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading about the other Hamden hotties then please do so; you will not be disappointed. Breaking Spades is the story about Cecilia “Cece” Cervetti and Jarod Gates who have an ugly past that will put their future to the test. We meet Cece in the last book as Dylan’s adopted little sister and if you read that book you know the story of how she and Dylan met. It is through Dylan that Cece and Jarod meet and sparks fly instantly but instead of jumping the gun, these two begin as friends. After a few shared kisses and touches, they have sex and Jarod, realizing his feelings for Cece are more than he’s ready for, pushes her away and enlist into the Marines. Cece, heartbroken and feeling alone, promises that she will never let another man into her life and mess with her dreams again. Flash forward a couple of years and Cece is doing well for herself as clothing boutique owner. She’s kept her promise of never letting a man get close and it’s been going great for her, until a break in at her boutique changes what she thought she wanted forever. Nothing was stolen; all the money still in its drawers and all that was left was a bouquet of white roses. Enter Jarod who has turned into a private investigator that Dylan has hired to follow and watch her. Cece being stubborn, knows that she can’t be anywhere near Jarod without old feelings and memories flooding back into her so she does what she can to make him leave her alone. Jarod isn’t having any of it and fights her until she can no longer deny the attraction. They give into the passion but each for a different reason; Jarod to win her heart and Cece to let go once and for all. Do Cece and Jarod get their HEA or does the past come back to end something that never really got a chance to start? Read it people you will not be disappointed! Each of the books in the Hamden series can be read as a standalone but the couples from the each book pop in so you might want to read them just to get your back ground info. I highly recommend this book and this series. Another win for Wendy!!

I live in New England with my young family.  I’m a stay at home mom to two very active children.  For all of you who are familiar with the stress of this job, I decided to complete an item on my bucket list and write a book.  When I’m not writing, you will find me cooking, reading, shopping or being silly with the kids.  In my opinion, one of life’s greatest pleasure is being able to get lost in a book.
I wish you all happy reading and hope you fall in love with the men of Hamden.
