Breaking Mr. Cane, the gripping, steamy follow up to the bestselling forbidden romance, Wanting Mr. Cane, from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shanora Williams is available NOW!
I was left broken, my heart beating a little bit harder in order to survive. I’d tried picking up the pieces, but when it came to Cane, it was hard to let go.
The way we touched was special and we promised to never forget one another. I had him right in the palm of my hand–thought everything was perfect–but in the blink of an eye, he was gone, leaving me with no choice but to pretend that what we had never existed.
She was off-limits to me, but I pushed the boundaries anyway. Now, I was stuck between a rock and a hard place, my career slowly but surely slipping out of my grasp, and ghosts from my past returning to make things much more complicated.
My love life had never meant so much to me until I met Kandy.
After being knocked down and left stranded, any sane man would have stayed far away, but I wasn’t sane–not by a long shot.
I knew reality was harsh, and the universe had all the odds stacked against us. Despite it all, nothing was going stop me from making her mine again.
And if someone tried, they were going to have to go over my dead body first.

Like he’d promised, he was waiting for me up front. He was standing in front of the exit with his hands tucked in his pockets and a pair of sunglasses covering his eyes, like he’d just arrived. I spotted him before he could see me, and my heart sped up several notches the closer I got.
Seeing him, reminded me of when I was a little girl and was looking at him for the first time. Though I was hopeless, the sunglasses shielding his eyes and his bad boy demeanor did something to me—whirled me up inside and drove me crazy.
He looked around for a moment like he could feel someone watching him, and when he was facing my direction, he put on a warm, welcoming smile, pulling the sunglasses off. He opened his arms and I dragged my suitcase on it’s wheels, rushing into them.
I hugged him hard and squeezed so tight. This hug was exactly what I needed. No questions, just outpouring love. My parents would have hounded me first, questioned me later, and maybe hug me after making the same “mistake” twice. And that was a big maybe. But Cane was no mistake. He couldn’t be.
Why would he have been brought into my life, if we weren’t meant to be something?
It didn’t make any sense.
There had to be a reason for this.
There had to be happiness at the end of our story.
Rating: 5 stars
Ok. wow. This book picks up directly from where Wanting Mr Cane left off so if you haven’t read that yet and this series appeals to you then step away from the review because this review is spoiler central about book 1 in the Cane series.
This book is a lot darker than Wanting Mr Cane and it deals with some intense subjects such as child and spousal abuse (which was briefly covered in Wanting Mr Cane but becomes more relevant in Breaking Mr Cane), drug and alcohol abuse and mental health issues.
This book begins with Kandy and Cane’s forbidden romance out in the open after the evil Kelly sent a pen drive containing a recording of them in a compromising position to her parents (and had many other copies made.) She had kept her crazy under a bushel for most of Wanting Mr Cane but throughout this book Cane is under no illusion of the type of person that she is.
Kandy goes off to college knowing that her father is devastated, he mother isn’t much better and Cane is hospital after her father attacked him. She tries to throw herself into college life, meeting new people and going through the motions of having fun but inside it is a different story.
I don’t want to go any further into book details because this really is a corker of a novel and it deserves to be read and enjoyed.
This series has taken a different course to the one that I anticipated when I picked up Wanting Mr Cane but it is different in a good way. More intense, more intricate and more than a ‘taboo romance’ I didn’t see coming most of what happens in this impressive roller-coaster. (well roller-coaster if they could also go sideways. It’s really more of a spin cycle and you never know what direction the story is going to take!)
One word of warning: Shanora Williams does like to leave you hanging and desperate to get your hands on the next instalment. I consider this both a good and bad thing. I am inpatient by nature but if the next instalment is as amazing as the first two then it will be worth the wait!
Thanks to Shanora Williams and Social Butterfly PR for granting me an ARC copy of Breaking Mr Cane. This is my honest review.
