“Never,” I whispered. “I never surrender.”

A smile of both promise and warning curved his beautiful mouth.

“You will.”

BREAK THE SKY is a standalone Spiral of Bliss spin-off novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nina Lane.




After working on the house all day Sunday, I called Kelsey the following morning. I had a limited time with her. I wasn’t going to waste it by dragging things out. Especially now that I’d had a taste of her explosive heat. A taste of the fire that melted all her ice. “Hello?” Her voice was scotch and honey.
“What’re you wearing?” I asked.
“A frown.”
“Mmm. Sexy.”
“Archer, I’m at work,” she said tartly.
“In a classroom?”
“No. I’m in my office.”
“So tell me what you’re wearing.”
There was a pause. Taut energy crackled over the line.
“Archer, I had rules because I have boundaries—”
“One rule,” I told her. “No boundaries. Not with me.”
“Or what?” she challenged.
“Or you don’t get fucked.”
She inhaled sharply. “You are so crude.”
“Uh huh. And you like it. What are you wearing?”
“A suit.” She sounded cross. “A tailored, gray wool suit.”
“And underneath?”
“A blue, Brooks Brothers dress shirt.”
“And under that?”
“I’m not going to tell you.”
“I dare you to tell me,” I said.
“I do not accept the dare.”
“Then I double-dog dare you.”
She gave a muffled laugh, like she was trying not to. “What are you wearing?”
“Jeans and T-shirt. I’m all hot and sweaty from working.”
“Really?” Now she sounded intrigued. “Are you wearing a tool belt?”
“I was.”
“Tell me about your sexy underwear,” I said.
“You’ve got a bad attitude, lady. You need to be spanked as well as fucked.”
She made a noise that sounded like a half groan, half laugh. “You do go all out, don’t you?”
“You haven’t seen anything yet. You ever been spanked?”
There was a second of silence, as if she was thinking.
“No.” She almost sounded surprised. “I haven’t.”
“First time for everything. What color is your bra?”
A sigh came over the line. “Blue, okay? Dark blue silk with white trim.”
“Matching panties?”
“Are they wet?”
“God, Archer. Yes.”
I rubbed my erection through my jeans. “What about your shoes?”
“Navy pumps with three-inch heels.”
“I’ll be at your place at seven,” I said. “I want you waiting in your heels and lingerie. Nothing else.”
“And if I’m not?” she replied, putting some of that ire back into her voice.
“You’ll be in trouble.”
“So if I am, I avoid… um, punishment?”
I laughed. “Nice try, storm girl. But you’re getting spanked no matter what.”

Erin's Review

If you loved Nina's Spiral of Bliss Series, you will fall in love even more with Break the Sky. 

I have loved Kelsey from the first time we met her back in Arouse. She is sassy, smart, and is everything a strong woman should be

Archer West is his brother Dean's polar opposite. Dean is successful, Archer floats from job to job. Dean has a family, Archer has no one. Dean found true love, Archer found........well, here the brother's may be more alike than they seem. 

Kelsey and Archer's chemistry is off the charts. I love them more together than I do apart. They bring out the best in each other and challenge one another in ways that they need to be challenged. Kelsey appears to have it all together but what she truly has is the desire to prove everyone wrong about her. Being a woman in her field is tough. Being taken seriously in the academic world doing what she does, is even tougher. I have always gotten the sense there is more brewing under Kelsey's cool exterior. She has a wild streak that she tries to tame and by doing so, she lost her true self along the way somewhere. Then she met Archer.

Archer is bad boy personified. He is everything Kelsey shouldn't want. Then why did she agree to a wild fling while he was in town? Because a small part of her wants to let go. She wants to be free, and Archer is perfect. He won't be in town long, no commitment and no time to fall in love. 

Archer has gone his whole life living in his brother's shadow. He has always thought of himself as the black sheep of the family and didn't do a damn thing to change it either. Archer is a paradox of emotions. He is restless yet when he sees what Dean has, he yearns for more. He is a love 'em and leave 'em kind of guy but yet can't stay away from Kelsey. He doesn't let anyone know the real him, but draws Kelsey out of the shell she built around herself and in the meantime, finds himself as well.

Break the Sky is a phenomenal story of finding yourself. It is a story of letting go of preconceived notions and remaining true to what you believe in. It's a story of finding the best things when you least expect it and knowing sometimes, you have to ride the storm to find the calm on the other side. It shows you that by taking risks, you free yourself from any limits you may have set. 

This by far, is one of my top reads of 2014. Good on ya, Nina. I hope we haven't seen the last of Storm Girl and Archer.
