Break Me (Absolution #2) by Sophia Scarlet *ARC REVIEW*


I’m falling in love. When I’m with him I feel free and vibrant. It feels safe. It feels right. It’s a lie.

When Agnes Bright agreed to a two month trial period as David Lake’s submissive lover, she intended to end her marriage and tell him everything. But the longer her divorce papers remain unsigned and her husband remains in the shadows, the harder it becomes to admit that she is not who she claimed to be that first night at the Grotto. Will the truth set her free or burn her new life to ashes?

The three book Absolution series is meant to be read in order:
Bend Me: Now Available
Break Me: January 5,2016
Bind Me: March 1,2016

Be advised that this novel contains BDSM content, dark elements, and mature subject matter. Due to explicit sexual content and adult language this novel is recommend for readers 18 and older.



Sophia Scarlet is a Maryland native. She lives with her husband, two children, and cat in the woods not far from the Potomac river. When she is not writing or shuttling her children around, you can find her practicing yoga, cooking, or picking seasonal vegetables at the local CSA.


Review of Bend Me (Absolution #1)

4 Stars

Break Me picks up right where Bend Me ends. We see Agnes Bright, alias Eliza Stuart agreeing to be David Lake's submissive lover. And with each passing day, Eliza falls. Falls more for David. Allowing herself to feel and to be loved.  She wants more from David, while she cannot give him all of herself. When her world shattered, with the death of her infant son, and with the impending doom of being divorced, Eliza finds herself being untrue to David.

I’m falling in love. 
When I’m with him I feel free and vibrant.
 It feels safe. It feels right. 
It’s a lie.

Not being truthful to David about her own circumstances, coupled with Eliza's own budding insecurities, plays on her emotions and all the secrets she is keeping hidden, with the unknown future on the horizon. Eliza finds herself questioning everything. At this point, as a reader, I felt the tension of the unspoken. Eliza's emotions was intense, while David's own pain was palpable.

As usual, Ms. Scarlet keeps is engrossed with her boisterous and flamboyant secondary characters. I absolutely loved the alternating POV's. Hearing the male perspective in any given story, is always such a plus for me as a reader.

For now, we have to wonder what will happen, will Eliza reveal her secrets on her own, or will they implode everything she has come to know and love, in the small time she has known pleasure, pain and David.
