Title: Breaking Away
Author: Toni Aleo
Series: Assassins #5
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Publication: June 10, 2014
BREAKING AWAY is a story of loss, healing, and love… where unexpected turns and heartache lead to passion.
To Nashville Assassins’ leading scoring center Phillip Anderson, playing hockey has always been easy… as natural as breathing. His life is no different. That’s until his world is turned upside down by the death of his sister. While mourning his loss, Phillip has to find a way to make his very angry sixteen-year-old niece, Claire, happy. Now, as her guardian, he discovers the only thing that seems to heal her lonely heart is dance class. But what he didn’t count on was the attraction he’d feel towards her drop-dead sexy dance teacher.
For Reese Allen, dancing has always been part of her soul. After having her heart broken in New York, she comes home with the determination to make her dance studio one of the best in Tennessee and succeeds. When she sees Claire dance for the first time, she knows the girl is bound for greatness and takes the troubled teen under her wing. Using dance as therapy, she suddenly finds herself bound to the young woman… and her hot-as-sin uncle.
However, Phillip and Reese are happy in their single lives. It’s simple. They do what they want, who they want, and how they want, but from the moment they meet, the attraction is undeniable. Soon, they are more than willing to spend just one night tangled in the sheets. But, one night turns into two, and two turns into three, until they find themselves in a repeated dance of “One Last Time” that has the potential to be something more… if only Reese and Claire allow it.
Can Phillip find a way to thaw the hearts of both the women in his life, or will he be forever trying to break them away from their pasts?

My description in 2 sentences:
"Breaking Away is the hottest Assassin's book yet! Prepare yourself for a lust filled ride, as Reese dances her way into Phillips heart."
A couple GIF's
To explain this book in one word I would have to say HOT! Wow is Phillip and Reese’s story sizzling. Reese is single and ready to mingle. After having her heart broken she has given up on love and decided to go heavy on the lust. She isn't looking for a boyfriend; she just wants to have fun. She is also a successful dancer with her own studio. What more could you as for right? Phillip is the male version of Reese. He enjoys a variety of women. Phillip ends up taking over guardianship of his sister’s teenage daughter and his life changes. He has someone else to worry about now. Someone who is on the rebel side of her teen years, hates everyone, and is angry. Phillip needs help. He asks Reese’s sister, Harper, to take her when he is gone. This leads to Harper seeing Claire dance, which leads to Reese seeing Claire dance and she is very good. Phillip and Reese’s worlds are about to collide. Are they ready for it?
This book alternates between Phillip and Reese’s point of view but, there is also Claire. She doesn't get her own chapters but, she is a huge part of this book. She has had a rough life. After her mother died she wanted to be with Phillip but, he was only 18 and not ready. When Claire does end up with Phillip it is rocky at best but, when Phillip takes Claire to Reese’s dance studio things start to change.
Phillip and Reese are seriously lustful. I mean wow. Hold on to your panties because this one is suuuuper hot. These two are worse than horny teenagers! Reese repeatedly says she doesn't want anything serious and neither does Phillip. Until he does that is. Phillip thinks he will just wait it out and eventually she will fall for him….right? I mean these two are basically dating without calling it dating. Unfortunately, Reese is incredibly stubborn. She will not change her ways. Despite her family and Claire thinking it’s a great idea. She is too afraid to get hurt again. Are they destined for each other or will they both end up broken?
Toni Aleo does it yet again. This book was amazing. Still so different from the other Assassin books! I am so excited for Laces and Lace. I literally cannot wait for the next book in this series!
