Synopsis: 

**Warning** 
This book is intended for a mature reading audience and contains adult language and themes. Contains a stubborn alpha male with addiction issues and loads of sexual tension between two damaged characters. Read at your own risk.

Knox Bauer's life has unraveled to the point of no return. Fighting to fill the emptiness inside himself, he seeks solace in unfamiliar beds with unfamiliar women. As guardian to his three younger brothers, he can't seem to do a thing right. But this can't go on...they look up to him in every way and all he’s done lately is prove how messed up he really is. Needing a change, he attends a local Sex Addicts Anonymous meeting, where he finds himself tempted by the alluring instructor, McKenna.

Twenty-one year old McKenna is trying to make amends. After losing her parents in a horrific accident, she knows if she can just be good enough, maybe she can forgive herself for what happened. With her newly acquired degree in counseling, she begins leading a sex addicts group where she meets the troubled Knox and her life takes on complications she never bargained for. She doesn't have time for a bad boy who only wants to take her to bed, even if her body disagrees. The fixer in her wants to help, but trusting Knox's true motivations might take more courage than she has.

Blog Tour Review: Jo Rushton

"When I Break" was full of lust, passion and lots of sexual chemistry and I devoured this book in no time at all leaving me wishing book 2 was already out. 

The story focused around the two main characters, Mckenna and Knox who were complete opposites.
Mckenna was clever, sweet, kind and giving,  spending her spare time volunteering at the local shelters. She was what we'd call an extremely good girl. 

Knox was the polar opposite, a bad boy who was loud, sexy and all alpha male. He spent his spare time chasing the ladies (Not that he has to do much chasing!).

When Mckenna got a job counselling at the local sex addicts anonymous group she met Knox. Now these two were like magnets... you know that saying... opposites attract? Well that was definitely true in this case!

"As I studied her, I realized she wasn't like the girls I hung around. She was beautiful. 
Educated. Intelligent. Submissive. It was that last part that got my blood pumping south. 
Introducing her to the business end of my dick became priority number one." 

There was no denying the chemistry these two shared but as they got to know more about each other they found an even deeper connection. This couple had more in common then they first thought.

"When I met you I could feel your pain and knew you'd experienced more 
than your fair share of trauma too. I felt connected too you."

"McKenna I'm not going to deny that we have a connection together. We do, 
but I fuck random girls. I use them for sex. I'm not a good guy. You shouldn't be nice to me." 

As the story progressed, I found my heart breaking for Knox and the life he lead. He was under so much pressure each and every day, leaving him feeling lonely and unloved.

"When night comes and everything is quiet. I realize it's just me, with all this pressure 
riding on me, and I need someone. Some company to make me feel whole again." 

I just wanted give Knox a big cuddle, OK, maybe a bit more then a cuddle! I'm a sucker for a damaged bad boy, they're my favourite kind of book boyfriend and Knox was definitely one of those. 

"Kiss me" 
"What if I can't stop?"
"Then don't."

When Knox and Mckenna were together they were sizzling hot. Knox braught out feelings in Mckenna that she had never felt before but can good girl Mckenna trust bad boy Knox? You need to read this book and find out for yourself but a word of warning, have a fan near by because you may need to cool off after reading it!

I loved this story, it was well written and pulled me in from the start. I was gutted when I finished it, finding that it ended all too soon in my opinion! I am eagerly awaiting book 2 in the series which is out in April. When I Break gets a 4.5 steamy hearts from me!
