Reviewed by Lex Allen for Readers' Favorite

An unexpected financial calamity strikes Ivy Sinclair with a double blow when she learns that she's been fired and simultaneously receives notice that her apartment lease has been canceled. In a reversal of fate, Ivy suddenly gets a job offer without an interview, on a remote island at an exclusive hotel that includes living quarters. As strange as the offer is, Ivy is desperate and this could be the turning point in her life that has thus far eluded her. Her only regret as she packs to leave is the loss of an unrequited love affair with Miles, itself a fascinating story within the story. Her hopes are dashed when the job offer turns out to be abduction, throwing Ivy into a world of torture, physical and mental servitude, and hardcore non-consensual sex. Read her harrowing tale in Breaking Sin by Emily Stormbrook.

Verisimilitude, that all-important sense of reality that every story needs is abundant in Breaking Sin. Realism in a tortuous, sex-filled, and violent story is a tough line to walk for any writer, but Emily Stormbrook tackles the subject perfectly with the use of colloquial terms to describe sex acts that far exceed the "normal" BDSM scene. Though the story of Ivy is full of gut-wrenching, fascinating depravity at the hands of her abductor, the underlying love story between Ivy and Miles, his supportive father, and conniving, hateful mother remains the primary theme that carries through to a rather abrupt conclusion. Fortunately, the cliffhanger at the end is immediately resolved as book two, Mastering Sin, has already been published. Stormbrook has a clear winner with this series and her readership, across all her books, will surely grow in leaps and bounds.
