Book 1, Breaking Away
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Chase Halloway's father is the president of Atlas, the drug dealing motorcycle gang that terrorizes most of our desert town.
My stepfather turns out to be a rival drug dealer, and I'm pretty sure he killed my mom two years ago.
I'm not supposed to fall in love with Chase. He's not supposed to know I even exist.
But when he finds me, he can't let go.
And when I find myself in his arms?
I hold tight.
I have to.
Because if I don't, I might just die.
With or without him.

Read all three books in the Breaking Away series:
beautifully raw, achingly real, and stunningly heartfelt
Finding Allie is beautifully raw, achingly real, and stunningly heartfelt story of two broken people who are longing for a deeper connection that will allow them to spread their wings and fly. I was completely captivated by this incredible journey, and I found that my heart is no longer my own. What a wonderfully exciting start to a promisingly brilliant journey of hope, love, and determination!
Allie can't wait to escape the live that she has been forced to stay trapped in. While her sister was able to walk away and begin living her dreams, Allie is held captive into a life that she never wanted. She longs to leave her current existence in favor of running after her dreams. Just as those wishes make their way from her heart to her head, in walks a man who will turn her entire world upside down and right side up. He is everything she shouldn't want, but she knows that he is exactly what she needs and wants. Chase isn't looking for a love that breathes life into him and gives him a driving determination that he has been looking for when he walks into a bar for a refreshing drink, but that's exactly what he gets. Allie not only takes him my surprise, but shows him exactly what he has been wanting for a very long time - unconditional acceptance, untainted love, and refreshing challenge. He protects her from a fight that breaks out and in the process finds out that he wants to protect her forever. Will he lose the one ray of sunshine in his life, or will he fight for his heart and his future?
Allie and Chase stole my heart, and I don’t want it back. They are from similar yet different worlds, and they are drawn to each other in a way that neither can explain nor want to fight. The more they get to know the other, they discover that they complement the other and cannot stop the intense pull to be together. Allie finds the missing piece to her heart, and Chase understands that Allie completes him in a way that he can’t explain and will not live without. Two characters that develop so exquisitely and pull at my heart like these two have are such a wonderful pleasure to read about. I can’t wait to read more of their deeply passionate and deceptively dangerous journey.
Meli Raine’s debut series is simply outstanding! I love the danger, the intrigue, the passion, and the feeling of something that seems so very real. This feels more like someone’s honest life story instead of just a made up work of fiction. Within this story I have found a rare honesty and a breathless love that has gripped my heart and will not let go.
Until meeting Chase, Allie has one specific goal-get out of town. Chase had one specific goal too but now it includes Allie. Finding out her stepfather is up to no good, Allie continues to seek comfort and safety in Chase's arms. Will both families destroy their new love? Meli Raine captured every emotion. This is a must read!
Finding Allie (Breaking Away Series #1) by Meli Raine
** I received an ARC from the Author in exchange for my honest review **
This story totally stole my heart. The characters of Chase and Allie are beautifully written. I found myself completely captivated by this story and quickly devoured each and every word. This is the first in a three-part series that ends in a cliffhanger. I am a fan of a good cliffy but was glad I had book two waiting on my Kindle.
