Rule Breaker cover


Racial Tensions Flare as Hot as the Passion in RULE BREAKER, a Modern-day Romeo and Juliet Story

Leilani Kealoha wants to be set free. Of family expectations. Of generations of prejudice. Chafing at rules made by the proud Hawaiian men in her family, she yearns to discover herself and hungers to explore the world. Her adventuresome heart? Longs for something even greater, deeper. The last thing she expects is an East Coast haole surfer to hold the key to everything. Mason Price is done walking his parents’ path. Done with social acceptance—with cold politics. On a surfing quest to reinvent himself, Mase finds an exotic beauty standing on his towel. But it’s her feisty bargaining that catches him off guard. When he challenges her with a “Truth or Shots” drinking game, she unwittingly reveals more than she’d intended about herself…and him. The raw truth stuns him: She’s suffered like he has, is lost like he is—keeps secrets like he does. But will young love and shared situations be enough to conquer racial and cultural divides? Lines in the sand…were meant to be crossed.

Rating: ★★★★
Reviewer: Melyssa

I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the first book in this series, or even previous works by these authors, but what I do know is, I’m a sucker for a good Romeo & Juliet type story and this one delivered on that, in a pretty phenomenal way.

It’s even better when like within this story, what takes place brings forth every conceivable emotion and feeling imaginable.

Before I get into that though, I first want to say that knowing next to nothing about Hawaii, I went into this story blind to the language and culture, even mannerisms, but through it was taken on one of the most visual and descriptive journeys. It was as much a learning experience (which I love when I’m reading) as it was an escape, the way reading is always meant to be. That aspect adding something to my reading that as of late has been lacking. So my hat is off to both authors for creating such a rich atmosphere for me to learn and fall in love with.

I’ve never been where Leilani and Mason find themselves. I probably never will walk the same road that they do, but what I did get from their journey walking it together, I think it will stay with me long after the book is done. The strength they both show, along with the very real weaknesses as they face what to some would be insurmountable odds, was a beautiful thing to witness. Equal parts breathtaking and heartbreaking because I just felt for each of them, together and apart. These were incredibly likable characters, put in one hell of a situation.  I will say that I felt more of a kinship or connection with Mason, but I had a feeling right from the beginning I would.

When I mentioned before that I ran the gamut of emotions, it’s because of the very real issues presented throughout and the connection that the authors built for these characters. It made it impossible not to feel. Not to sympathize. But more than that, not to understand. My heart melted at the same time as it took a hit. It laughed at the same time as it wanted to cry. It was a book that I was in no way prepared for, but one I’m so glad I took the chance on.

My thanks to the authors, NetGalley and all others involved in letting me read a copy of this story before official release. This was a journey in multiple ways that I’m glad I got to be a part of. I can’t wait to read more from these authors in the future.
