Before You Break
Before You Break by K.C. Wells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*~~*ARC kindly provided by the author to me in exchange for an honest review *~~*

Whenever I read a book by K.C. Wells I can be sure I get a good one, and the combi with Parker Williams is a heavenly match. Both authors are well known through the Collars & Cuffs series and I am happy to see the guys in the spin-off series. I was really sad when the series ended with eight books, but I am thrilled to see that the “heritage” is still alive. :3

The main focus, though there are the re-appearances of the doms and subs from the Collars and Cuffs series are on Wayne and Ellis. And holy, these guys are sweet together.

I have a soft spot for friends into lover and this is really interesting mixed with the BDSM thing. I have to admit no other author than K.C. Wells and her writing-partner Parker Williams are able to hook me this strong and to capture me with the stories. I feel not uneasy to read the kinky stuff. In fact, it is very pleasant and well researched and  – as an advanced reader of their books – as sweet but hot as the other books before. :3

I was really emotional involved with Ellis and Wayne, it is so hard to see how Ellis is having such a burden, the way Wayne is supporting him is so sweet and you really can feel the emotions on each page.

The humor isn’t over the top neither is it too less. The balance is in place, same goes for the sex and kinky scenes. They are emotional, sometimes really hot but always tender and spiked with love.

For this I give 5 out of 5 stars. It is really good to see how Jared and Eli open their BDSM-club in London, how the Collars & Cuffs crowd is having their reappearance and how we get a new couple with Wayne and Ellis. :3

(there is an excerpt of the book)


Six years ago Ellis walked into his first briefing as the newest member of London’s Specialist Firearms unit. He was partnered with Wayne and they became fast friends. When Wayne begins to notice changes—Ellis’s erratic temper, the effects of sleep deprivation—he knows he has to act before Ellis reaches his breaking point. He invites Ellis to the opening of the new BDSM club, Secrets, where Wayne has a membership. His purpose? He wants Ellis to glimpse the lifestyle before Wayne approaches him with a proposition. He wants to take Ellis in hand, to control his life because he wants his friend back, and he figures this is the only way to do it.

There are a few issues, however. Ellis is straight. Stubborn. And sexy. Wayne knows he has to put his own feelings aside to be what Ellis needs. What surprises the hell out of him is finding out what Ellis actually requires.

Author bio  – K.C. Wells & Parker Williams

Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter….

K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.

And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….

K.C. loves to hear from readers.

Happily Ever After Comes With A Pricetag. Parker Williams began to write as a teen, but never showed his work to anyone. As he grew older, he drifted away from writing, but his love of the written word moved him to reading. A chance encounter with an author changed the course of his life as she encouraged him to never give up on a dream. With the help of some amazing friends, he rediscovered the joy of writing, thanks to a community of writers who have become his family. Parker firmly believes in love, but is also of the opinion that anything worth having requires work and sacrifice (plus a little hurt and angst, too). The course of love is never a smooth one, and Happily Ever After always has a price tag.
