"To say I missed her was a cruel understatement, like saying you'd miss your soul after you gave it away."
- Breaking Her by RK Lilley
Excerpt: Meet Dante and Scarlett
He was panting into my face. “Tell me you don’t miss this,” he said emotionally.
This was what made him such a bastard. We were over, had been for years, but it didn’t matter. If he had his way, he’d keep me tied to him in so many ways I could never break loose. He was cruel like that.
I subjugated every pathetic thing inside of me that jumped to do his bidding. I would not feel what he was trying to make me feel.
“I don’t miss this,” I managed to get out through my constricted throat.
“Liar,” he breathed at me, madness in his eyes.
I shuddered, my own madness coming out to play. “No. No. No. I’m not the liar. You know why I don’t miss this? Because it’s a lie.”
It was his turn to shudder.
“Because it’s a lie,” I repeated.
“It was always a lie.”
“Don’t say that.”
“It was always a lie,” I repeated. “Want to know how I know?”
“I won’t stop. I’m not finished. Want to know how I know?”
“Enough. Stop it. You’ll say any horrible thing when you’re in a temper.”
“I will, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t the truth. What we had was always a lie. I know because if it was real it wouldn’t have ended. It felt like forever, and forever was a lie.”

Breaking Her, Book 2 Love is War Duet, Synopsis
He had done it again. Ravaged me. Burned me. Broken me.
Given me air, only to leave me gasping, writhing.
But then something changed. Something that terrified and excited me both.
Something that utterly destroyed me.
Something that made me whole again.
Our love was cursed from the start. She didn’t know it, but I did.
All she knew was that I’d lied to her, betrayed her. Done unforgivable things. Unavoidable things. Yes, I had broken promises as surely as I had broken her heart. But, just as every war has casualties, and every lie has consequences–every bastard has his reasons.
Breaking Him, Book 1 Purchase Buttons
It was the kind of relationship where I invested more than I had to spare.
I gave it everything.
And so when it failed, I lost myself.
It changed me. He changed me.
I went down with the ship.
My soul, burnt embers in the aftermath.
The fire of him ravaged it all.
He burned me.
Scarlett had always dreamed big. She was headed straight for Hollywood. Destined for silver screen greatness.
But in her wildest dreams she never imagined she’d be broke and single at twenty-eight, doling drinks at thirty-five thousand feet.
She was a glorified waitress in the skies.
It had been years since she’d seen him.
But one day, there he sat, gazing intently at her, ready to set everything ablaze once more.
Dante wanted her. Again.
Sure, she’d play along…but this time, it was his turn.
She was breaking him.
After all, love is war.
"A wise person once said that in a relationship you should keep the fights clean and the sex dirty. I don't do that. Neither does Dante. We never have. We do everything dirty."
