Review: The Breaker's Concubine by Ann Mayburn

The Breaker's Concubine
by Ann Mayburn

Holy F****G S**T this book is thigh-clenchingly HAWT!!!  End of review.  LOL Yes, sorry for the cursing I just had to get that off my chest. WOW!  It's sci-fi erotica, but even if you don't read sci-fi and you want something hot you have got to get this book. *shivers*

Prince Devnar is captured on another planet while he was supposed to be on a rescue mission.  He was betrayed by one of his own and he is now being "trained" by a Breaker so he can become the queens pleasure toy.

Melania gets the job as his breaker.  Breakers are not supposed to get aroused, are not supposed to get attached.  But Melania's conditioning is failing and her connection with Devnar is instant, and ohhhhh boy so hot!

In the middle of all that they have to find a way to help Devnar and his crew escape and defeat the Queen.

Melania is a bit broken herself, I loved seeing her vulnerable side.  Devnar seemed to be the perfect other half for her.  And once they bonded, their relationship became that much stronger.

Some of my favorite quotes:

“Because you aren’t mine.” Her breath came out in a soft sob. “Because you will belong to the empress, and I cannot have you. I’m so alone, and I cannot have you.” He froze above her, and to her shame, she felt tears welling in her eyes.
"You are mine to play with," she whispered against his chest, her lips trailing over his skin. "I will give you pleasure like you never imagined. All I ask in return is your complete obedience. Let yourself go; let me make the decisions. The only thing I want you to do is feel."

Do not apologize for the way you feel about a book - EVER! Your heartfelt emotion is what makes or breaks a review. Hell, it's what caught my eye in the first place, well, second after that smokin' cover, and I'm going to get this one. I like a good sci-fi! Thank you!

Woot! So glad you dug this, when I was writing it I had a feeling that it was going to be a love it or hate it book for a lot of people and I'm glad that Devnar and Melania found a home in your imaginaition.

I have no idea why photobucket said the cover is naughty, it really isn't that bad, but if you want to see it and take a peek at chapter 1 you can do so here:

@Everybody: you HAVE to read it!!! LOL I've been pimping this book out since the moment I started reading it ;)

@Artemis: Well, I had to apologize for the cursing because some people get offended but I couldn't have said it any nicer, as you said, it was exactly how I felt :) Enjoy!

@Ann: I have no idea why Photobucket did that either, but I changed the file location so it's up now. ;) I CANNOT wait for the next book.
