New Release & Review- When Dawn Breaks by Melissa Toppen


Life is hard. There’s no secret in that statement.
Life. Is. Hard.
Simple enough.

But my life hasn’t just been hard…

I’ve gotten used to it over the years—come to expect it really. So when fate hands me yet another big f*ck you, I’m not even a little bit surprised.

Why should I be? I mean, after everything I’ve been through, why not throw my best friend’s ex-boyfriend into the mix and see how royally I can screw this up too.

It doesn’t matter that he loved her first. 
It doesn’t matter that he’s wrong for me in every way possible. 
It doesn’t matter that being with him could ruin everything.

One touch and I already know it’s too late.

5 Stars

Melissa Toppen has written a powerful and emotional romance story that really shows the strength that people have during some of life’s hardest moments. The story looks at the pain that some people go through in their life and how they try to survive through the hard times. I think that the author did a good job writing the emotional of the characters throughout the story.

Bree is an amazing and strong woman that has been through so much trauma and pain throughout her life that my heart hurts for her. But the strength that she has throughout the book continues to amaze me.

Ant I really enjoyed reading about and his easy going nature throughout the story. But at the same time, I felt for Ant as well when I realised that the front he puts on for people is just a mask to hid the pain that he carries around.

Ant was the former boyfriend of Bree’s best friend and that means one thing his off limits. But the attraction and chemistry between the two is undeniable, will a relationship work out between them or will friendship stop it from happening.

This is definitely a story that people should read because it is emotional and beautifully told. It was written flawlessly and the storyline is unique.
