Thirty-one year old Claire Hatley is running from Seattle having just discovered that her live-in boyfriend has traded her in for a twenty-two year old hostess.  Devastated and alone Claire must make a fresh start.  She answers an ad for a chef at a guest ranch just outside Colorado Springs and finds herself face to face with Cole Mitchell, quite possibly the sexiest man to ever ride a horse.  Common sense tells them to stay away from each other, but their attraction is not to be denied. He gives her a glimpse of what love should be, but just as she starts to trust him, the past comes back to tear them apart. Join Claire and Cole as they embark on the stormy love affair of a lifetime. (Oh…and for those of you with husbands/boyfriends, please tell them “you’re welcome” from MJ.)

“I finished reading “Break In Two” a couple of weeks ago.  It is still very much on my mind, even after having finished a dozen other books since I finished reading yours. Having just logged my 900+ book on Kindle during the past few years I have read several hundreds of Romances.  I have only one other time written to the author regarding their book.  Romances have brought forth many emotions as I read them and I know there is almost always something that tears two lovers apart before they reach their  ‘together forever’ moment. Even as I read “Break In Two” and knew Gabriela would be the cause of their break-up it was the first time I have ever felt actual pain while reading.  It was so bad I could not eat supper that night.  I was nauseous and my stomach clenched reading through their pain.  It did make their eventual reunion sweeter but I have never been drawn into a couple’s pain as you did with “Break In Two.” Thank you for giving me that journey and that amount of emotion.  You did exceptionally well.”

“5.0 out of 5 stars “The best book you will read all year!

“I have read a lot of books, and a lot of westerns, yet never have a read a book that encapsulates so many different emotions as Break in Two. There are moments that will have your blood boiling in frustration and yet tender exchanges that will melt your heart and bring you close to tears. A wonderful story that twists and turns and never lets up for a second, ever page is a new experience, and I reached the end before I knew it. I would be remiss if I wrote a review and didn’t mention the erotic nature of the novel. Hot is not the word for it. Scenes written with a passion that is echoed in the characters. A powerful story written by a writer I have followed online religiously in the build up to this release, and who I am certain will go from strength to strength. Setting the bar high with her debut novel, MJ Summers has all of the skills necessary to cement her name at the top of the ladder.”

“The Romance that Guys will Enjoy!”

“M.J. Summers, “Break in Two”, First, I must tell you I am not normally a romance genre reader. But, I heard so much about this exciting new book that I decided to give it a read. I really enjoyed this well-written book by MJ Summers. Her style is unique and the way she crafts scenes blew me away. As a writer, I took a lot away this read. MJ Summers has something special, guys, go get this and buy one for the wife too! A five star rating without any reservation.”

“What a tale! I loved it and my wife couldn’t put it down. This is one for the Kindle.”

“I loved every juicy second of this one!”

“Break in Two, wow, hot!!!”

“OMG, I loved this story line. I’ve been waiting for this story to come out forever, and have been following the release notes on facebook, goodreads and some blog tour sneak peeks. Cole and Claire suck you right into the story line… I’m not a good one for giving a long synopsis, but trust me, you want a HOT story that will not only make you laugh out loud and pull your heart strings at the same time, BUY THIS BOOK!

    I simply.can’t get enough of this story! It was one of those books that you just can’t put down, and when you reach the last page you’re hungry for more.
    . I’m dying to read more. Mary’s reaction to Claire returning to the ranch… The birth of Ben and Alicia’s baby… Janet and Ted’s story. I never want it to end.
    . You have captivated me with your writing from the beginning of the story and I am literally running to get your next book. Well written, humorous, touching, and full of surprises. Everything a great story has.
    . Keep the books coming, you have a fan for life.

    • I just sat down at my computer to get to work this morning and saw your most wonderful comments. Thank you so very much for writing to me! You can get more of the Mitchell family in the prequel to Break in Two, called Don’t Let Go (available now). It’s a short story featuring Ben and Cole as boys growing up, as well as Ben and Alicia as they fall in love. The family will also return this fall in my fourth novel, Breaking Hearts. I hope you’ll also enjoy Breaking Love and Breaking Clear, as well. They don’t feature the Mitchell family but both books are full of lovable characters distantly linked to ranch. I hadn’t thought about writing Janet and Ted’s story, but now that you mention it, maybe I should. I certainly love those two together. MJ

    I read a lot of books. I also try to take advantage of the free e-books so that i get a taste of upcoming authors. Well let me just say that i am so glad i downloaded this one. It was absolutely amazing. The story line was perfect. It wasnt a book about perfect people or perfect situations. It was real life drama. One other thing that really made the book was the ending. For some reason a lot of authors will have a good book up until the ending, where the rush it all into a few pages where they could have ended it at a much more subtle pace. Its almost anticlimactic its so fast. But not this book. Its so well wrote, i would even read it again in a year. So if the chance arises, dont pass this book up. Its worth ever hour it takes to get through it. And dang does it have some steamy parts!! Its definitely up there with J.R.Ward books!!

    I have enjoyed this story line – it had me on edge, I am so happy I downloaded it. By the way the author is a great writer.

  6. I just finished reading and all i can say is wow. I am almost speechless. I have not been affected by a book in a really long time. I laughed, i cried and i laughed again. Where can i get my own cowboy? I love all of the characters and i will be recommending it to all of my female friends. Thank you for a truly wonderful book that will always hold a special place in my heart. I can’t believe there a more in the series. I’m so excited. Thank you again for allowing me to escape into a world of your creation.

    • Dear Leisa,
      Thank you so very much for your lovely note! It is an absolute gift to hear from someone who has read and loved one of my books. Writing is a solitary activity and hearing from a reader reminds me that I am not alone. I sincerely hope you will enjoy the rest as much! Thank you also for telling your friends about Break in Two. Word-of-mouth is honestly the difference between having writing as a full-time career and having to give up my little dream and go back to work.
      Please keep in touch,

  7. I just loved this book!! I couldn’t wait to finish it to see how it turned out. Love love love it!! I couldn’t stop reading.

  8. Thank you so much for your wonderful book!!! The story is wonderful!!! The style is wonderful!!! I am eager to read all books!!!Congratulations, wonderful fellow novelist. Keep on writing more books.
