Book 3, Breaking Away
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
I'm alone, tied up, bleeding and terrified.
I'm a prisoner at the Atlas motorcycle club compound. Someone kidnapped me, and it looks like it's Chase.
No one knows I'm here. Then again, I'm no one, right? No mother, no stepfather, and my sister may have been kidnapped, too.
They can make me disappear. Or worse. It turns out there are worse things than disappearing.
I thought Chase was my only hope. Now he turns out to be my worst nightmare.
Something flickers in his eyes, though. A glimmer of love. If I can get him alone, maybe I can convince him to let me go. To let me live.
To let me go back to a time when I thought he was a good guy. Only Chase has the power to make that happen.
Everything I am is in his hands right now.
And those hands are about to touch me.

Read all three books in the Breaking Away series:
The final installing of the Breaking Away series is mind-blowingly phenomenal! The ways that the storyline played out was so far beyond anything that I ever imagined. What an extraordinary set of twists and turns we were graced with! I am still coming down off the high of this incredible journey of just how far love and hope can stretch when they are the only things we have left to cling to. Pure, timeless, and unforgettable are words that I would use to describe this amazing adventure!
Allie has fallen into her worst nightmare ever. No matter where she looks all she see, feels, and hears is absolute pain and utter desperation. With all of the strength she has left she claws and fights everything around her to hold onto the last slice of hope and the thinnest shard of love in order to keep her from completely shattering. There is no light in her present darkness, and the longer she fights against it, the quicker it drags her down. Quietly and stubbornly, she races for answers and in their places finds even more of the ugliness and emptiness threatening to destroy her sanity and her heart forever. When the tiniest beam of light presents itself, she will risk everything to keep it with her. Are hope and love able to overcome even the worst of circumstances? Can a shattered heart keep beating and eventually dream of being whole again?
My mind is still reeling from this final part of the story that is Allie and Chase. Unbelievable, painful, and outstanding keep popping up inside my head as descriptions. You can’t help but feel with this story. There is no part where you are able to stay hard and separated. Too much is happening, and there is no let up on the intensity or the amount of emotions that filter from the story into your heart. We all know that if Romeo and Juliet ever had a happy ending, it would not be easy and it would not be pain free. The Breaking Away series illustrates that point beautifully and flawlessly, but it also illuminates the fact that with love comes danger, pain, and vulnerability. However, it’s up to each of us to decide if the risks far outweigh the benefits. What is life if we don’t go outside of our comfort zones and dare to do what our heart longs for? True, we will come out different, but in the end, who we become is who we were always meant to be. The harder and more unforgiving the journey, the sweeter and more precious the reward will be.
Meli Raine has continued to amaze and delight me with this beautifully raw story! Each part clearly shows that life is not easy, and we can’t always choose which way our life goes. What we can choose is how we face it and conquer our fears along the way. What we find at the end of our struggles will make the pain and the danger a fading memory and make everything look sharper, smell sweeter, and feel stronger. This is a wonderful series that fans of romantic suspense will not want to miss!
Incredible! Meli Raine wrote about love, fear, and the truths that are sometimes hard topics to discuss. Allie and Chase are meant to be together but Chase's gang family has other ideas. Will Allie be saved? Find peace? Will Chase save her? A must read!
Keeping Allie (Breaking Away #3) by Meli Raine
I just could not wait to continue this outstanding story so I bought a copy the minute I finished the last page of book two even though I had an ARC
coming. Book three begins where book two left off. I don't want to spoil the story so all I will say is Wow! This book took me on an emotional roller coaster! Heartbreaking. Heartwarming. Impassioned. It has been a very long time since I enjoyed a series of books this much--Cassia Leo's Shattered Hearts Series comes to mind. I have definitely found myself a new author.
