Amy's 3 star ARC Review of Breaking The Girl by MC Webb
Breaking the Girl by M.C. Webb is a dark story of desire. Two souls collide, breaking open a long forgotten past, and a very tortured present. What drives the lovers closer, may be the very thing the tears them apart.
Axel Stone is a porn star, a highly successful porn star. Now semi-retired and frigidly cold, Axel stumbles through life the only way he knows how – lots of booze and women. With more than 1500 movies over his short career, Axel has slowly removed himself from filming, opting instead to “train” woman for the industry resulting in their near stardom as they emerge onto the adult film sets. Every director wants one of Axel’s girls because Axel’s girls, make money.
And Payton Knight needs money.
Homeless, survivor of a horrific ordeal has left Payton broke and desperate. A chance encounter to meet and be trained by Axel, with the possibility of making enough cash to right her wrongs, Payton jumps at the chance. It doesn’t hurt she is instantly attracted to the leading man. Neither get what they expect and as they both struggle with which reality is less damning, both Axel and Payton pay an ultimate price.
Breaking the Girl
Numerous trigger warnings for this one including rape.
This book centers around the porn industry which didn't bother me at all but it was quite dark and a little rough in spots as far as being too descriptive.
The characters both have some back trauma in their lives as one is retired for the industry and training the new recruits. The girl who is the newbie is way to naïve for this type of jumping in with both feet. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it. Not a fan of the rape scene in a book unless it's about healing from that trauma. The author did allow the character to come into their own and flourish a little which was good especially for our male lead.
I'm not saying don't click it up but I am saying if you do be warned. Thank you for the opportunity to read.
