About this ebook

As the black sheep of the Steele brood, Micki Steele craves one thing: the love of her family. Working as a hacker for a ruthless fixer, Micki has done things she'll never be proud of. When she flees Vegas and returns to her hometown, she brings along her boss’s secrets and plenty of danger. At least until he arrives in Steele Ridge, intent on hauling her back to Vegas—or burying her in North Carolina.

Former Green Beret and family friend Gage Barber has been Mr. Fix-It his entire life, but now a war wound leaves him struggling with simple tasks. And when the mysterious and sexy Micki shows up and pulls him into the middle of her family drama, his loyalty to the Steele family is tested. Although he’s sworn off his need to play hero, his undeniable attraction to Micki leaves him with only one option—convincing her to break free of her ruthless boss.

Torn over protecting the man she’s falling in love with and her yearning for a normal life, Micki must choose between staying trapped in Vegas or a life of freedom in Steele Ridge. Even if breaking free leads straight to heartbreak…and prison.

Breaking Free is a spectacular contemporary romance by Adrienne Giordano. Ms. Giordano has provided readers with a well-written book. This story is loaded with a cast of characters you can't help but love. Micki Steel was coerced into working for a man that threatened her family. When her boss is stuck in a Mexican jail and her coworker goes to get him out, Micki makes her move and escapes back to her family. Gage is a former Green Beret with a brain injury and is helping the Steeles get their business set up. Gage and Micki's story is packed with drama, humor, spice, action and suspense. I loved this book from start to finish and look forward to my next book by Adrienne Giordano. Breaking Free is book 5 of the Steele Ridge Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
