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?
Two broken souls find a way to heal eachother. What an amazing journey Ms. Ferraro takes us on. I’m kicking myself for not starting this series sooner! Even though Breaking Spades is book 4 in the Hamden series, this can be read as a standalone. Be warned, if you are just like me and you started with Breaking Spades, once you are done, you will be itching to start at the beginning.
Full of hilarious banter, steamy love scenes, and suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat, Breaking Spades will have you hooked. I couldn’t get through the pages fast enough. The characters were great, the chemistry was there and incredibly intense, and the backstory was heartbreaking. You will fall in love with Jarod Gates and Cecille “CeCe” Cervetti. You will have no choice but to care for them and want what’s best for them, even though, at times, you might want to smack them around a bit for their stubbornness.
❝Admit it, I make you feel all warm and fuzzy.❞
❝Yeah, like an ugly Christmas sweater.❞
The beginning of Breaking Spades had me instantly in tears. I didn’t know how Ms. Ferraro was going to redeem her hero after that madness. Don’t worry, she does, in a major way! CeCe had her heart-broken in a way that you think will never mend. A young girl’s dream of happily ever after, gone in an instant. That event has shaped the way CeCe deals with love and relationships. Her heart is surrounded by heavy walls, and no one is getting even close to breaking those walls…again.
❝I’ll just chalk it up to the fact you’re an asshole. We’re square on that front, now.❞
Jarod Gates, you sexy, sexy man. How I would like to slap you! Jarod lost his mom in a horrific accident when he was young. His father gave him an ultimatum, get out or ship out to the military. So, the military it was. Events occurred that left him hurting and feeling like less of a man. Through all these horrible circumstances, he still remembers CeCe and the horrible way he left things with her. He will do anything to make it up to her.
❝I may have climbed my way out of hell, but for you, I’m willing to go back at a moment’s notice.❞
Can a love that was once destroyed ever be repaired? You bet your ass it can! No matter how stubborn and sarcastic the people involved are. Not only are Jarod and CeCe dealing with their conflicting feelings for one another, but CeCe has her very own stalker that is very persistent. Jarod will do anything to keep her safe, no matter how much she bitches and complains. At first CeCe doesn’t take it seriously and she has her suspicions, but it gets more intense and more dangerous. You are constantly guessing on who the culprit may be, and believe me I was shocked when I finally found out who it was. You won’t see it coming people!
❝You deserve better than me. You deserve all the happiness in the world, and if I had even a shred of decency in me, I would walk away from you, but I can’t.❞
When all the dust settles, and the bad guys are put away, and second chances are given, you will understand why Breaking Spades was such a great romantic suspense. It has everything you need to keep you satisfied: steamy, passionate sex scenes, heart-pounding suspense, and a love story that will melt your heart. Thank you W. Ferraro for a wonderful romance and a perfect epilogue. I applaud you my dear! Well done!
