Sins of Ashville 2

“Bend, Don’t Break was a dark, sensual, and at times, twisted and chaotic read that messed with my mind so good.” (Shayna Renee’s Spicy Reads)

James is still reeling from the dark facade he was forced to adopt at “the retreat”, and before he and Rose can be together, he needs to find his own way to move on.

I thought I was done.
     my End
I couldn’t take my eyes off her as the bullet tore through me, leaving me with nothing but the hope that I had done enough to save her. The darkness tried to engulf me—to brand me as its own and drag me to my fate.
          my Darkness
Waking to see her tear-stained face above me was enough to make my heart stutter. I was alive and free from that place—but not from the toll it had taken on my mind and body. My story should have ended, but one woman kept standing in the way of that.
               my Strength
The only way I could have her was to find a way to put the darkness to rest.

“what a way to finish this story!”

Beggin (Shay) from Mommys a Book Whore

“James experiences a loss of control that is parallel similar to what Rose felt while being held captive – this time their roles are reversed. He struggles to maintain control, but in a different way. He has to learn how to live with himself in his own skin.”

Angie, Goodreads

“I read Irrevocable and Bend, Don’t Break back to back and I think I’m in book hangover mode.”

Heather, Not Everyone’s Mama

“This story is intense and powerful. Darkness looms over these two characters and traumatic events seemed to have guided their way for the last year.”

Tbird London, Goodreads

“…pulls me into the story and keeps me hooked till the end…”

Reckless Readers

“If you are new to this series and like dark, erotic, deeply psychological romances, then go get your hands on it, you are in for one ‘helluva’ ride!”

A Reader’s Review Blog

“this book is filled with every emotion and it is an amazing read.”

Wicked Reads Review Team

“…it shed new light on some things…”

Angie, Wicked Reads

“One of those times where you just have to have faith when we say go read these 2 books and see what we mean when we say CRAZY TWISTED AND AMAZING!!”

We Stole Your Book Boyfriend

I am so happy to have read James’ POV !!” 

We Stole Your Book Boyfriend

“…a great way to get his thoughts and feelings across without retelling the first book…”

Sheryl, Goodreads

“The best part of this 2nd book for me was James and Rose having to come to terms with their master/slave relationship, the enjoyment they ultimately got out of it (even though it is very hard for either of them to admit it) and how they are now going to deal with those feelings in the real world, in a real relationship. I found it emotionally interesting (and, yes, I’ll admit, HOT!).”

Goodreads review

“Speechless! This was exactly what I needed to be happy with their story!”

Reckless Readers

“The emotions that James goes through are so solid and palpable in this story that my heart literally ached for him… Filled with suspense, passion and a very strong love, this was a 5 star read for me.”

Naughty Mom Story Time

“Ms. Callahan has a unique style of writing that helps transport her readers into the minds of these intense, damage characters, making you feed off of their emotions and in turn making the book, more than just another dark romance read, but an all out intense experience.”

Shayna Renee

“Skye Callahan blew the retelling in a different pov out of the water… While this book shadows part of Irrevocable… it felt like a whole new experience.”

Alicia, Mean Girls Luv Books

“I have to say that James is going on my book boyfriend and favorite book list… It’s one of the best books/series you will read this year. It’s dark, beautiful, and just overall a must read.”
