Book Review! Breaking Through by Juliana Haygert

Breaking Through (The Breaking Series #3) by Juliana Haygert 
Genre: New Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: August 22, 2016
Publisher: Self

From the outside, Hilary Taylor has it all—beauty, money, a caring family, good friends—but inside she’s struggling, full of fears. Events from the past forever changed her, and though years of therapy have helped, she still has a long way to go…. No matter how much progress she’s made, Hil isn’t sure she’ll ever be able to trust men again. Especially one who sees her as nothing more than a pretty face. But Hil knows it's time to face her fears, and the best way to do that is to start small.

To Guilherme Fernandes life is about three things: polo, parties and pretty girls—only one of which he takes seriously. Gui is too focused on his polo career to waste time on relationships, however he can’t help but be intrigued by the beautiful yet troubled Hil. So when she decides she'd like to learn more about horses, Gui is happy to find himself in the right place at the right time. But what was supposed to be a one time thing, soon turns into a weekly date.

As Gui helps her discover a new found love for horses, Hil’s guard begins to crumble. The more support Gui offers, the more she wants to accept...and the more the lines of friendship blur. Despite knowing better, Hil can’t help it as Gui slowly breaks through the walls she’s built. Now she has to decide if she’ll stop him there, or if she’ll finally let her fear go and allow Gui to reach for her heart.

Companion novel of Breaking Free and Breaking Away. Can be read as a standalone. Genre: NA contemporary romance. Warning: strong language, sex scene, mentions of rape and domestic violence.

Breaking Through is the third book in the Breaking Series by Juliana Haygert. This was the perfect addition to a series I already love. Even after three years, Hilary is still suffering the effects of what happened in the first book. Yes, it's a stand alone novel, but I highly suggest that you read this series in order. She's afraid of pretty much everything, but she realized and acknowledges that it's not normal. She knows it's something she needs to overcome. Bit by bit, Gui helps her. He's such a sweetheart, but he still has that intoxicating all around male-ness like the other guys in his family. He's Alpha, but not overwhelmingly so. Watching the two work together to overcome her fears was heartwarming. Things happen that made me so proud of that girl! And, she's just a fictional character!

Needless to say, I loved this book, and I'm anxious for Gabi's story to come out next!
