Playboy billionaire Braydon Decker changes women more often than designer ties. Scarred and humiliated as a teenager, he pledged long ago to never trust a beautiful woman again. But then he never imagined meeting one quite like Jain Parker.
Jain, a dedicated medical research scientist, learned early in college that her good looks were a hindrance and she’d have to tone down her beauty to be taken seriously, thus, Plain Jain was born, and men were no longer an issue. Of course, she didn’t count on running into Braydon Decker.
A successful venture capitalist, Braydon holds the key to whether Jain’s research company sinks or swims. When the two are forced to work together on a fundraising campaign, they’re instantly drawn to one another, despite their individual vows to remain unattached. As they navigate unchartered waters, their inability to trust wages war with their desire to love.
Hearts are broken and trust is shattered when betrayal and lies are revealed. Will the truth bring them healing and forgiveness, or will it be too late?
Breaking Braydon offers readers an emotional, compelling story filled with heartwarming humor, romance, heartbreak and love.

He stood about six-foot-four. Slightly mussed, longish dark hair hit the perfect balance between wild and contained. Beautiful high cheekbones and the start of a sexy five o’clock shadow. Those were what I noticed first. He was stunning. I paused in that moment, torn between his two best features, trying to figure out which was more attractive, his eyes or his mouth. I’d always been a sucker for eyes that would crinkle when a man smiled or laughed. Staring intently at him now, I could see laugh lines, but I’d have to wait to see if his eyes did that crinkly thing when he came out of his piercing stare.
♥MY REVIEW♥ by Dina
I really enjoyed this book, mostly because they both had issues and worked through them little by little together. Both having long standing trust issues with the opposite sex made for an interesting story. Jaine had trouble trust men and being taken serious since she was gorgeous. So, she downplayed her beauty and desire for anything but research. Braydon, on the other hand, dealt with is insecurities and trust issues with women by using them. Letting no woman stay more than 6 hours. When they met – wow- sparks flew right off the page (well screen, but you get my point). My only negative about this book was its PG-13ness, I expected more based on the warning that came with the review request. But it was a great fun book without all the sex!
The secondary characters were wonderful and added so much more to the story. I would love to see a book about Todd or Colin, or one for each (wink wink!)
I have never read a book by M. K. Harkins, but I can guarantee you that this will not be my last. I plan to download her other books as soon as I am done with this review.
