Breaking Braydon Tour Stop!

BB tour banner
Playboy billionaire Braydon Decker changes women more often than designer ties. Scarred and humiliated as a teenager, he pledged long ago to never trust a beautiful woman again. But then he never imagined meeting one quite like Jain Parker.

Jain, a dedicated medical research scientist, learned early in college that her good looks were a hindrance and she’d have to tone down her beauty to be taken seriously, thus, Plain Jain was born, and men were no longer an issue. Of course, she didn’t count on running into Braydon Decker.

A successful venture capitalist, Braydon holds the key to whether Jain’s research company sinks or swims. When the two are forced to work together on a fundraising campaign, they’re instantly drawn to one another, despite their individual vows to remain unattached. As they navigate unchartered waters, their inability to trust wages war with their desire to love.

Hearts are broken and trust is shattered when betrayal and lies are revealed. Will the truth bring them healing and forgiveness, or will it be too late?

Breaking Braydon offers readers an emotional, compelling story filled with heartwarming humor, romance, heartbreak and love.
I have to admit something: I am so totally over the billionaire playboy plot.  I’m starting to wonder if I should stop reading them all together because I’m not sure that I give the book a fair shake because I am just so sick of the plot line.  But, I like to think I can give a book a fair shake even if the plot is tired, so I forged on!
Jain is, well, plain.  And she wouldn’t have it any other way.  She realized early on that her looks were hindering her, so she became plain on purpose in order to be taken more seriously, especially in the world of medical research where she’s working to find a cure for ALS.  When she meets billionaire Braydon, she is blindsided by her feeling of an instant connection to him.  And he feels the same.  But he holds the key to her future in her career.  Can she give that much to one man and not come out hurt again?  They grow closer and realize their desires, but can they hold it all together when someone is threatening to tear them apart?
Ok, so Braydon…been there done that.  But that aside, I really liked Jain.  The spelling of her name I found to be a bit annoying, but I can put that aside.  Also, be warned that his is a clean romance, so no sex.  I repeat, no sex.  That isn’t an automatic kiss of death for a book because, let’s face it, it gives a lot of space to develop an actual plot, which this book manages to do quite well.  I liked the chemistry between Jain and Braydon and thought that the romance was very sweet between them.  But, I think I reached a point where the sweetness was just a complete overload and it definitely veered into cheesetown for me.  The end, especially, I found it hard to get through.  Completely predictable and just a little barf-inducing.  This wasn’t a very original storyline once it got to a certain point and I found that tough to get past.
Overall, I liked the characters quite a bit, and I liked that Jain is a strong woman.   But, the plot and cheese factor were just a bit too much to overcome for me.  So, I give it 3 stars.
I wasn’t opposed to spending a little time with them, the relentless women. The tabloids were right; it was always under six hours. After that, I’d be done. They usually wanted to stay longer. Why did they delude themselves? Jain’s different from those women. I punched my pillow again, groaning in frustration. These thoughts had been circulating around my brain all night. Why couldn’t I just forget about her? Her lips, that’s why. Every time I closed my eyes, I imagined kissing her. Slowly, thoroughly. I knew those lips would be soft and inviting. I could almost hear her moan with pleasure as we kissed and held each other close. Stop it! You’ll only hurt her. I needed to stay away from her. I would only bring her trouble, and she’d bring me heartbreak. Instinctively, I knew both to be true. But could I stay away?
M.K.MK has always been a voracious reader. After hitting a dry spell of reading material, she decided to write the kind of book she'd like to read. This resulted in the creation of her debut novel, Intentional. (Award for Best Sweet Romance - eFestival of Words- August 2014) Unintentional, her second book, is based on the life of one of the characters in Intentional. Unintentional was written as a stand-alone book. Breaking Braydon is MK's newest work. It will be published early 2015. When she's not writing novels, she likes to spend her free time traveling the world, splashing in mud puddles (She lives in Seattle, what can she say?), watching movies and reading (!) MK also runs her own business in her current hometown of Mercer Island, Washington. She LOVES to hear from her readers!
