    First I want to begin by saying I am a MASSIVE Tiffany Snow fan. MASSIVE. I absolutely adored book one in this series. China's idiosyncrasies were hilariously adorable. Her "Love triangle" had such an innocence to it, that despite it all, she comes off as a character you root for. Book two didn't have the same feel as book one.

Gone is the quirky socially awkward novice. China was thrust into so many situations that at times the old China seemed to have disappeared and in her place was a throw-back to another series' character. But maybe that is the point? Maybe this is an emerging of a new, more self-assured, China. The love triangle also felt off. It didn't have the heat as the previous book. Will I keep reading the series? Ya damn skippy! I gotta know how this all plays out friends. *Netgalley read Follow us on   KT Book Reviews Twitter Facebook Pinterest tumblr YouTube Book Babblers

The hero of the story is 'China' who has just started a top-secret high security job which she can't share with her ex-boss and new boyfriend Jackson. Without giving away much of the plot but to say foreign enemies, mystery, danger and kidnapping come into the mix, the biggest draw of this book would be the appearances of two fan favourite characters from her Kathleen Turner series. In all honesty, if I hadn't read the Katheen Turner series by this author I would have rated this higher but for me this book pales in comparison because both the male characters aren't fleshed out, to have me rooting for them. Jackson comes across as needy and controlling while whatever hints have been dropped about Clarke don't make me as interested in him either. I also fee Tiffany needs to move away from her old series and old characters, there is too much emphasis on them that takes away from this series. So far China does come across as naive when it comes to relationships and I don't see her invested in Jackson or Clarke for that matter. For fans of Tiffany, the book is good but it isn't at the same level as her Kathleen Turner series. ARC provided by publisher through Netgalley.

    This is the second book in this series and while China Mack was so much fun with her quirky, nerdy OCD issues those traits did not shine through quite as much in this book. She was still a fun character. I prefer a little more of the romance which this one did not offer compared to the first. There is also some kind of underplay going on with Clark, China’s coworker, that I’m not really comfortable with. This book does have a lot of excitement, twists and turns. Jackson still has a few surprises This is the second book in this series and while China Mack was so much fun with her quirky, nerdy OCD issues those traits did not shine through quite as much in this book.

There is also some kind of underplay going on with Clark, China’s coworker, that I’m not really comfortable with. This book does have a lot of excitement, twists and turns. Jackson still has a few surprises of his own as well. I enjoyed the story I just like my romances with a definitive alpha hero which, in my opinion, this book lacks but makes up for with having two yummy male characters that care about China and will battle each other in their effort to protect her. All in all, it was a very entertaining read in which I stayed up way too late to finish and it seems to be setting the reader up for the next book.

    Mindy Lou's Book Review

    I love a book with a quirky character and China fits that bill to a T. Usually it's the Hero's in the books that keep me invested, but in this series it's China. The author did such a good job of making her geekiness and her interactions with other characters, adorable and funny. I have been very entertained in both book 1 and 2 of this series. I hope there is plans of more. If you aren't a fan of series, the author ends both books in a way that would give you closure. I would recommend reading I love a book with a quirky character and China fits that bill to a T. Usually it's the Hero's in the books that keep me invested, but in this series it's China. The author did such a good job of making her geekiness and her interactions with other characters, adorable and funny. I have been very entertained in both book 1 and 2 of this series. I hope there is plans of more. If you aren't a fan of series, the author ends both books in a way that would give you closure. I would recommend reading book 1 before 2, however. You could pick this up as a standalone but you would be more invested in the characters if you got their beginning. Book 2 basically starts right where book 1 ended. Everything I loved in the first book continues on into this book. In book 1 we had a bit of a love triangle going on and normally I'm not a fan of that. There was just something about the author's writing that it didn't bother me like it usually would. I was more invested in China's shenanigans than I was invested in the romance aspect of the book. I liked both Clark and Jackson so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed with who China chooses. Once she did choose Jackson, I was a bit disappointed to see Clark and China's attraction linger into book 2. You do see a conclusion to this and I never felt it over stepped so it didn't ruin my enjoyment of the book. Seeing Clark truly care for China actually made him a more likable character. It's part of the reason I would like to see more in this series and see Clark get his own love interest. Overall, this was a fun and entertaining book. ARC provided by NetGalley.

    For my friends and people who follow my reviews, it shouldn’t come as surprise that I am a HUGE Tiffany Snow fan. She is one of those authors that I automatically one-click without even finding out what the book is about – I just know without a doubt that it is going to be astounding.

Break Me is the second installment of the Corrupted Hearts series by Tiffany Snow an For my friends and people who follow my reviews, it shouldn’t come as surprise that I am a HUGE Tiffany Snow fan. She is one of those authors that I automatically one-click without even finding out what the book is about – I just know without a doubt that it is going to be astounding. Ms. Snow’s latest release Break Me was everything I knew it would be plus so much more! This reader was not disappointed – at all. Break Me is the second installment of the Corrupted Hearts series by Tiffany Snow and like her previous novels, the action and romance starts off with a bang and never ends. The story was completely addicting and I couldn’t put it down even for a second. To say that I loved everything about this installment would be a major understatement. What really makes this story spectacular is the main character China. She’s insanely smart, socially awkward, has some major OCD issues and is just as cute as a button – and she seems to find herself in a huge bit of trouble that only the two leading men of the story can save her from. China is currently dating Jackson Cooper and I really love that their together, but since Tiffany Snow is the queen of love triangles, I just can’t stop thinking that somewhere down the line sexy Clark Slattery will win China’s heart – which would make me very giddy. Not that I don’t love Jackson, but there is just something about Clark that I find extremely appealing. Fans of the Kathleen Turner series will love the final chapter which caught me off guard, but in a good way and I was pleasantly surprised and can’t wait to see where this twist in the story takes the reader next. Tiffany Snow has outdone herself with this incredible series, and I highly recommend this 5-star read to anyone who loves a fast-paced, action-filled romantic suspense that is both captivating and engaging, leaving the reader craving more.

    Audible re-read, I love China Mack and she's even more brilliant on audio! We’re back with China Mack and her quirky but brilliant mind! Now working for the government, China wrongly assumed that all of her problems are behind her. Whilst she is still under the protection of Clark, and dating Jackson, she is torn between her loyalties towards these two men. Clark knows about the project she is working on but she can’t tell Jackson about it. Now with danger looming and the Vigilance software once a Audible re-read, I love China Mack and she's even more brilliant on audio! We’re back with China Mack and her quirky but brilliant mind! Now working for the government, China wrongly assumed that all of her problems are behind her. Whilst she is still under the protection of Clark, and dating Jackson, she is torn between her loyalties towards these two men. Clark knows about the project she is working on but she can’t tell Jackson about it. Now with danger looming and the Vigilance software once again under threat, China must decide if she can let Jackson into her work life in order to keep her safe. China is unlike any other female protagonist that you will read about. A girl after my own heart, she doesn’t think twice about wearing couture and converse, at the same time. Being paraded on the arms of two men has its challenges, though, especially when her cover is blown whilst alongside Clark. Jackson is facing his own demons though as the government tries to discredit him and his business and there’s only one person he can turn to save the day. The only problem is that she comes with an attachment aka Clark! With drama around every corner, this amazing threesome must act fast and trust no-one in order to keep Vigilance secure and to free Jackson. Whilst China is brave and strong, she is also as fragile as her name and if you damage her she will break. I've found this series fascinating. Whilst still struggling with the sci-fi nerd speak, I have come to find it more endearing than challenging. Tiffany Snow keeps you on the edge of your seats both with the drama and emotion and you are continually questioning whether Clark will ever win over China’s feelings or is her heart solely in the hands of Jackson? This is another story with a #TeamJackson / #TeamClark theme running through it but whilst I have come to love both men, and would happily choose both, the question is will China remain faithful to Jackson or will the emotional tribulations that she faces with Clark draw her closer to him. With another fight seemingly won, it appears that hackers are not who you ever expect them to be and this story ends with what looks like another intriguing story around the corner. If you are curious about hacking, programming, secrets and spies then this book is a must read!

Her romance with Jackson Cooper is still going strong, although it soon becomes clear the love-birds are not on the same page when it comes to committing to their relationship. Thankfully for me, the reading experience of this second book in the Corrupted Hearts series was pleasurable this time around however, fans of China in the first book may feel disappointment because her OCD tendencies have faded to a greater degree. The socially awkward IT genius is a more assured young woman as her role shifts to a more covert one. The deviation in China's personality trait is replaced with even more references to fandoms, which went over my head. I'm not interested in Star Wars or any sci-fi films so numerous mentions about China's cherished Stars Wars pyjamas was over the top! The strength of this novel is the imaginative narrative, it's on-point with the current political feelings. Ms Snow has always written suspense incredibly well and I wish the romance aspect matched the same intensity. China and Jackson's romance is luke warm at best and Clark is in the background pretending he doesn't like his line manager (China). Therefore I'm grateful for the fast pace when the suspense is the main focus. The writing switched between first and third person which was a surprise, and a little confusing sometimes until I got used to the format. I'll admit the biggest motivation to read Break Me was the inclusion of characters from the first series Ms Snow wrote. With rumours flying about a hint of a Happy Ever After for the one 'unlucky in love,' the temptation was too great an opportunity to miss. Knowing this, I dived into this novel reading the final chapter first, something I've haven't done before. Afterwards, I felt decidedly underwhelmed with regards to the cameo appearances. However, this was a hasty opinion because you need to read the full novel to gain a clearer impression of their inclusion within this plot-line. Duh!!! (face palm). If you are paying attention, you'll spot them much earlier (wink). The sequence of events within The Corrupted Hearts series reminds me of this series too, although, only those who have read those books gazillion times would pick up on it...maybe! The comparisons are subtle, but are there, leading me to speculate the route China's heart will take her. To sum up, I'll be back for book three and sincerely hope Ms Snow delivers up the unexpected in the finale...something she's done before and is more than capable of doing again; If only to prove me wrong about how I see this series playing out. ***arc generously received courtesy of Montlake Romance via NetGalley***

    It seems to me that occasionally the second book in a trilogy suffers from "middle child" syndrome. You know what I mean; it struggles to fit in, it does things differently and constantly fights with it's older and younger siblings for attention. Thankfully, this book is not a middle child. It has a life of it's own and from the first hilarious few lines, takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride of laughter, anger, sadness and nostalgia.

You know what I mean; it struggles to fit in, it does things differently and constantly fights with it's older and younger siblings for attention. Thankfully, this book is not a middle child. It has a life of it's own and from the first hilarious few lines, takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride of laughter, anger, sadness and nostalgia. This is so difficult to write without major spoilers, but here goes. Our heroine - brilliant, awkward, tech genius China Mack - has a new job, a new man, a sexy new co-worker and a whole new set of problems that she doesn't know how to deal with, including her hysterical man-magnet Grandma. On one hand she's oblivious to the growing tension between Jackson and Clark, yet on the other she confidently leads a team of fellow nerds in cracking impossible codes and tracking down expert hackers. But using her smarts - as well as her social inadequacies - to her advantage sees her snooping where she shouldn't be and mixing with the lowest of the low, all in the name of tech wizardry and world domination. She's still a little too trustworthy which is at first endearing, but it doesn't take her long to hitch up her Big Girl panties (Victoria's Secret with a matching bra, of course), harden up and go to the extreme to get her man out of the Government's clutches. By extreme, I mean the Big Cheese, the Big Kahuna, and despite all the clues I still didn't get it until the last chapter... I like the fact that the love triangle feels like it's slow to develop, but by the end of the book I felt like it had slapped me in the face for being so oblivious. What I really like about Tiffany Snow's previous books featuring a love triangle (the brillilant Kathleen Turner series and the Risky Business series) is that it's built up, then dealt with quickly and neatly in the final book. It doesn't drag out, nor does it go backwards and forwards for chapters and chapters. I'm looking forward to that in book 3 so we can get on with the business of China. The writing is fast paced, detailed and deep. The character of China grows and matures greatly in this instalment as she faces lighthearted fun, misunderstandings, deep love and unimaginable horrors. We see a different side of Clark and a darker side of Jackson. A brilliant middle-child. But did I mention the last chapter? Re-reading it made being late for work soooo worth it. I received a free advance copy of this book in return for an honest review.

    I’m going to be finicky and talk about a review I read about this book on Amazon. The person who wrote it said, “China has no experience with relationships, she is naive and too trusting, she doesn’t know how to dance. Come on, did the author make her a genius in computers and science just to make her clueless in every other aspect of life???????”. Now she did say other things, but this just bothers me for some reason. As a girl who had never been in a relationship previous to the one she is in I’m going to be finicky and talk about a review I read about this book on Amazon. The person who wrote it said, “China has no experience with relationships, she is naive and too trusting, she doesn’t know how to dance. Come on, did the author make her a genius in computers and science just to make her clueless in every other aspect of life???????”. Now she did say other things, but this just bothers me for some reason. As a girl who had never been in a relationship previous to the one she is in with Jackson, how is she supposed to know what relationships entail? By reading Harlequin books she reads? Sure that’ll give you some idea, but relationships in this books are generally not like other books. Also, I’m a female… I DO NOT DANCE. I don’t know how and I wasn’t ever properly taught. I have slow danced at my prom, but honestly, that was just swaying back and forth lol. Not Anyways, I just had to point that out. The person who wrote that review gave it a 1 star. Because in her eyes, Tiffany Snow made China clueless about everything other than computers and science. Just wanted to point out that not every girl knows about relationships or how to dance! Now, on to my review below! Can I just say I’m super happy to know that Blane Kirk and Kade Dennon are making appearances in this series?!?!! I’m hoping we get a glimpse of Kathleen Turner too! Though we don’t see Blane and Kirk until the end of Break Me, they are more prominent in Find me, which I am currently reading! There were certain times in Break Me that I was absolutely on the edge of my seat and I want to give huge kudos to China for not breaking when Lu had her. Way to stick your ground girl! I love the way Tiffany Snow writes. It would be much easier for me to read her books on kindle, instead of paperbacks I borrow from the library, simply because of the dictionary feature because there are certain words that I don’t know what they are or even how to pronounce them, but I stick it out & figure it out. I literally read Break Me in less than a day and immediately picked up Find Me! I’m about 1/4 the way through with Find Me right now and once I finish it, I’ll be able to start on my ARC copy of Save Me! Being local to Tiffany Snow, I hadn’t ever read her until August of last year I think. Maybe September! Honestly, I don’t even know that I had ever heard of her until a book group friend recommended me to her! Imagine how sad I was when she showed up at a book club meeting and I wasn’t able to be there. Sad day, but one of these days I’m going to get the courage up to see if she wants to meet for lunch sometime! Because … that would be awesome!

    All Is Fair In Love and Cyber War . . . So happy that China Mack is back and that more is obviously to follow! This second novel in the Corrupted Hearts series is just as amazing as the first maybe better with point of view changes and guest appearances from The Kathleen Turner series. Tiffany Snow has given me a female heroine whom I relate to on so many levels that I almost feel normal reading about China's issue until she endures hacking, espionage and problems dealing with two hot men. Final All Is Fair In Love and Cyber War . . . So happy that China Mack is back and that more is obviously to follow! This second novel in the Corrupted Hearts series is just as amazing as the first maybe better with point of view changes and guest appearances from The Kathleen Turner series. Tiffany Snow has given me a female heroine whom I relate to on so many levels that I almost feel normal reading about China's issue until she endures hacking, espionage and problems dealing with two hot men. Finally adjusting to the notion that her controlled-routine life is no longer an option thanks to people now actively in her life, China is now faced with trying to balance a social life and super secret work life. Dating one of Forbes hottest bachelors should be an females dream, but China is barely used to social norms and to be quickly thrust into celebrity status was something she hadn't calculated in dating the Jackson Cooper. So when her position as the head of operations for the President's off the records department of cyber intelligence code name Vigilance is compromised, China begins to take matters into her own hands and starts relying on the dangerous and handsome Clark Slattery. It's not till Jackson and Cysnet are threatened with actions of treason that China finds herself having to decide whom to trust and who is the enemy when it comes to politics, espionage, love and cyber war. Overall, great sequel! Absolutely love China and wish we could be awkward BFFs!! The dialogue Tiffany writes for this series is super chill, I know that's not very descriptive, but China as a brainiac is truly simple to understand. Her black is black and white is white, it's those in her life that bring complications. Jackson is a great guy for China in being similar minded, but I'm really pulling for Clark. I don't know why but I'm always rooting for the side guy in Tiffany's books. Besides all the relational business, I loved how much China was pushed out of her comfort zone. Honestly, no one likes to be out of sync but it's how you respond and adapt that makes or breaks you. Oh and last two points: 1) love the change up in character perspective mid novel which gave a fuller picture to the story through the eyes of the guys and 2) fans of Blane Kirk will be thoroughly pleased with what Tiffany drops in this novel. So if you were a fan of "Follow Me" then you'll definitely devour this book and want more of Ms. Mack. **I received a free copy & chose to post an honest review**

    Okay story, decent narration by Ariele DeLisle. (audible review) This was a decent enough book. It did have a couple issues. I really like China Mack's character and her quirkiness. I like both Jackson and Clark, however, Clark seemed to be coming to a forefront of being her love interest and I am not sure I like that. If this series continues, I hope the next book is about Clark and someone else. If this becomes a love triangle it will suck. I hate love triangle's.

If this series continues, I hope the next book is about Clark and someone else. If this becomes a love triangle it will suck. I hate love triangle's. The story line and plot was a bit confusing at times. It could have been written much better. There was a lot of internal dialogue going on from China which some was funny and some could have been left out as it was not necessary. At 67% the book went from being written in the 1st POV to the 3rd POV. I was so happy when that happened, but it was short lived and went back to the 1st POV. Then again towards the end it went back to 3rd POV for a very little bit then back to the 1st POV. The problem with the 1st POV is you don't get anything from the other characters and that just kind of sucks. So all in all it was not a great book it was not terrible either. But it could have been great if written a little better and the story line and plot not so convoluted. Because it was. There was a bit of action and exciting things happening so there is that. There was also a lot of dialogue throughout the book that was good minus the unnecessary internal thoughts coming from China. As for the narration it was good, I think Ariele DeLisle did a good job on the men's voices and gave everyone their own distinct voice. Although she does sound very young. More like she should be narrating YA books.

Both trying to take on a job that protects the US from some serious cyber threats. The close proximity between Clark and China has the technology guru wondering where Clark fits into her life at times. Even though China is still in a relationship with Jackson, her work takes a major piece of her time. Threats still linger from the Vigilance project, making China wonder if letting Jackson ‘in the loop’ will keep her out of harms way. Jackson is facing his own set of problems, and knows there is only one person he would turn to for help. The only problem is China now has an ‘add on’ in the shape of Clark. The suspense surrounding the characters kicks up a notch and the plot thickens. Where will this triad come out in the end? Only time will tell, and knowing Tiffany Snow it will be a sexy and sinful ride. One thing is certain, none of the characters will take a walk on the easy side to find their ‘happily ever after’. I can’t wait to see where China, Jackson, and Clark are headed next. Break Me is the second installment in the Corrupted Hearts series. One filled with all kinds of secrets and tech filled activities. Some of it becomes a bit overwhelming in the grand scheme of things, but the way that China completely changed in this book threw me for a bit. Don’t get me wrong….I still enjoyed the story. China just seemed to take on a new persona in the second book. An extreme departure from the quirky and socially awkward gal we came to love in the first book. As always, Tiffany Snow knows how to write a love triangle!! I am looking forward to a little more ‘push and pull’ in the next book to spice it up even more. Fans of Snow’s previous series will get a little ‘treat’ in this book. A homage to a couple of past favorites that have not been forgotten. All in all - another great series in the Snow empire.

With China’s inept social skills and being the girlfriend of Boston’s most eligible bachelor proves to be taking its toll on our heroine. While Jackson wants more and to define their relationship, China is not ready wanting to slow things down, providing lots of tension between the two of them. Add Clark to the mix, and I was left wondering what would happen between these two characters that I had grown to love. After the world found out about Jackson and China’s relationship, she instantly became famous which isn’t very good when working for a secret government agency and definitely brought China more and more out of her comfort zone. Throughout the book, my feelings for Jackson and Clark went back and forth like a ping pong match. I loved Jackson from Follow Me, but then he started to get jealous and a bit of an asshole turning China’s life inside out and not seeming to realize it. Before it seemed like he understood China's OCD and her need for a schedule and control when then all of a sudden he expected her to adapt overnight to all of her life changes. But then he showed his vulnerability, and I swooned going back to loving him again.  It wasn't hard to fall for Jackson again. Clark, on the other hand, came off as an Asshat but then showed that he wasn’t a bad guy, making me wonder why he treated China the way he did in the beginning. "You and I are cut from the same cloth," he said with a sigh.  "I've never been with someone that I can relate to as much as you and I connect.  Not just on an intellectual level, but on an emotional level.  Do you understand?"  I nodded. He was right. I felt it too. Jackson was the first person since my mother who seemed to understand and accept me for who I was- not who he wanted me to be. For a while, I noticed there wasn’t too much suspense but let me tell you that once it came, it was hardcore.  My heart felt like it was going to beat out of my chest. At one point, I thought about seeing what my heart rate was. Seriously, I couldn’t get through the pages fast enough as my heart felt like it was going triple time seeing what was going to come next and how they would get out the trouble they found themselves in. If you’re a fan of Blane and Kade from The Kathleen Turner Series, they both appear in Break Me! I was so happy to read them that I went back and reread their series. I absolutely love Tiffany Snow’s books. Every book of hers hooks me from the start, and I can’t get enough of her writing or her characters. Each book is full of mystery, suspense, romance, and smart characters that you’re sure to love. I definitely recommend Break Me and all of Tiffany Snow's books if you're a lover of romance, mystery, and suspense.   Review: 5 Stars Reviewed by Christi Kindle | Paperback | Audible Corrupted Hearts Series: Follow Me | Break Me This review was originally posted on Book Boyfriend Blog Follow Me on: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

    4 stars. I love China Mack! This series is obviously not as good as the Kathleen Turner series (my favorite romantic suspense series), but it is much better than the previous two that Tiffany Snow released. There is a pretty good love triangle (again, not as good as kade and Blane from Kathleen Turner, but still good). The plot is pretty good and overall I just love Tiffany Snow's writing. Her books are so easy to read and her way of creating a funny and quirky heroine is so effortless. Cant wait 4 stars. I love China Mack!

P.S. loved that Blane made an appearance in this series ;-) and WoW, what a catch he turned out to be ( still team Kade though. The right guy one in Kathleen Turner series, IMHO, and I don't care what anyone else has to say about it! ;-)

    I REALLY enjoyed Break Me. It was a quick read and picked up where Follow Me left off. If you haven’t read Follow Me, pick up both of these awesome books and you will not be sorry. (I think it could be read independently but I don't like to skip books in a series so it's hard for me to say for sure since I ready and truly enjoyed Follow Me as well). Tiffany Snow has a true talent that makes her readers love her books and she is the ONLY author I have ever re-read. Her books have all the things I I REALLY enjoyed Break Me.

Her books have all the things I enjoy – fun characters, great dialogue, suspense, romance and of course some steam. For those of you who have read Tiffany's earlier books (Kathleen Turner series) you will recognize some of your favorite charachters in this book.

    Was just about to give this 3 stars, but then I felt a thrill at the surprise at the end, so I bumped it up. I really like China. She's a good character and I actually enjoy the OCD and random factoids sprinkled throughout. I'm hoping this series doesn't end in the same way as the Kathleen Turner one, in regards to whom she ends up with. Evidently, I'm always on the wrong team. Random aside: why isn't she wearing her glasses on the covers of these novels? Was just about to give this 3 stars, but then I felt a thrill at the surprise at the end, so I bumped it up.

    China Mack is in a league of her own, she’s highly intelligent (prodigy level), socially awkward (it’s fancy, so dress up = fandom cosplay) and she has a high sense of moral conscience (the genie will not go back in the bottle).

China finds herself in a unique situation, overseeing Vigilance (the Big Brother Software she helped create) because any other option is unfathomable. All risks associated with this project fall on her shoulders. Tiffany Snow has the reader rooting for China with every page turn. Break Me is full of action – Holy Crap! Did that just happen? Suspense – What’s going to happen next? How is China going to handle this situation? And how is China going to get out of this mess?? Romance – whoa boy, those moments with boyfriend Jackson Cooker are H-O-T! Plus, the interaction between former “neighbor” Clark Slattery as his “muscle” to her “brains” adds another layer of dynamics. Thank You Tiffany for another book that keeps me on my toes! I cannot wait to find out what happens to China next! Pick up this Must Read today!

    I absolutely loved China and the first book in the series but I really did not like China in the first half of this book. While I love her quirks at the beginning of the book I just found her to be whiny and really immature. I really struggled to make it through the first half but I'm glad I stuck it out because the second half was much better. China was also much better and not annoying in the second half. The relationship aspect and love triangle felt really flat and not at all interesting unt I absolutely loved China and the first book in the series but I really did not like China in the first half of this book.

    I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. China has gone from working for her tech billionaire boyfriend Jackson, to heading a secret government agency with Clarke as her partner. China is keeping her new job from Jackson and he isn't happy when he discovers she is working with Clarke.

Espionage and lots of action had my heart pumping as I devoured every page. Action on the romance front is tangled in the story too. Break Me is a fantastic and topped off with a brilliant last chapter I did not see coming. I loved it. I'm so excited to read more of this series. I hope the wait isn't too long.

    Excellent Tiffany Snow!!!! I can’t say enough how much I loved “Break Me”. This book picks up where the last one ends. I was hooked from the beginning. There are 2 very different, but both extremely sexy men, Jackson and Clark #IWillNotPickASide. Then there’s China Mack, I adore her, she’s not your normal leading lady. She’s a genius, awkward, and get caught up in a much different world than she’s used to. Tiffany brought back even more action, suspense and romance with this book.

In true Tiffany fashion, she makes you feel like you are in the story. Every detail can be pictured in your head. One minute I would be laughing and the next I’d be holding my breath, and making sure my feet were under the covers (you know, so the bad guys don’t get me). Then there’s the twist and turns I did not see coming. This book is so well written. My first thought when I finished this book was ‘WOW that was just awesome!” I can’t wait for the book 3 to see what will happen next. Break Me is a sensational follow up from Follow Me. This is a must read!! #5wineglasses

    4.5 stars. They say the good sign of a great love triangle are when both sides are viable options. That is most definitely the case with Tiffany Snow's latest in her Corrupted Hearts series. Quirky, but lovable China Mack is dealing with the fame that comes with dating tech billionaire, Jackson Cooper. Their new relationship faces numerous tests, namely in the form of Clark Slattery, China's coworker in a super secret organization that throes those two together.

In this book, we get to know more about Clark and Jackson as we get to peek into their POV. I loved these chapters and it did cloud my choice as to which MSN is the better fit for China. I still am leaning more toward one side, though! The romance and suspense are amped up in this one. We also get to see more of China's relationship with her niece and her spitfire of a grandmother. Tiffany also gives her longtime readers a guest appearance from some characters from the Kathleen Turner series. Will not spoil that for anyone, but as someone who was left broken-hearted after that series, my heart healed when I found out what happened to my favorite male character of all time. I truly enjoyed this second book and I have no idea where things are headed for Book Three, but I cannot wait to find out.

    This was a good sequel to the Corrupted Hearts series. I very much enjoyed where the story line went, and the characters grew on me more in this second installment. The story fits in perfect with the real-life issues happening in the USA right now regarding spying and illegal surveillance from foreign governments. The technology is kind of scary actually. Of course it had a Tiffany Snow spin on it by incorporating a mixture of her style of suspense and a romance. I would have liked to have seen a This was a good sequel to the Corrupted Hearts series.

I would have liked to have seen a little more heart squeezing tension between the characters. I always enjoy the way Tiffany writes love triangles, so stronger angst wouldn't be opposed. This entire book was entertaining and kept me flipping those pages on the kindle app. However, my favorite was the last few chapters. Always a fun surprise and can't get enough.

    I freaking love Tiffany Snow!! She gives us hot and funny romantic suspense novels that just makes you want to start investigating crimes!! lol Book 2 starts off a few weeks after the last book.  We have China Mack, techie guru and lovable nerd girl who is totally in a HOT relationship with Jackson Cooper, —one of Forbes’s Top Ten Eligible Billionaires.  And he's is witty, a genius in his own right and did we mention gorgeous??!!  yeah.. totally!

So China goes from behind the computer to actually participating in some 007 investigations, that she is absolutely not prepared for and totally throws her OCD schedule out of whack.  Thank goodness much to Jackson's chagrin she has Clark to protect her.  Yeah.. you remember Clark.. the hottest of hottest alpha seal-ish type that used her for info.  Used her by pretending to be interested in her.  oh yeah.. him! I have got to tell you that there is no one better at the 3's a crowd thing than Tiffany Snow!  She absolutely is perfect at writing sexual tension between 2 men and one woman that does not go down the path of cheating or trivial blasé triangles.   She adds espionage, drama, bullets and oh yeah.. lots of hotness!  She is the expert at team alpha one or team alpha two, and at times you are totally switching teams and are absolutely jealous of the heroine! Can not wait for the next installment!! And... AAAAaaaAAAaaannnnnd!!!! OMG.. my heart almost burst out of my chest.. but we get a little Blane and Kade in this story!!!!!!

    Having enjoyed the first book in this series I was looking forward to seeing what the author would bring in this one. China is back and still as naive as ever in many ways. She believes that her life is going to continue exactly the same as it always did, regardless of the fact she is now dating Jackson. Clark remains a huge part in her life and this leads to a lot of awkward situations. China's life will never be the same, and in this book the author puts her through the ringer.

    Break me is the 2nd book in this series, this book delivers, in every way. Long time Tiffany fans have a few Easter eggs in parts and they are fantastic. Another master piece Tiffany... you never fail to up the bar!!
