Adult FictionContemporary RomanceRomantic SuspenseSweet Love



On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman’s worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy “company town” where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family. And she never forgot their spoiled son, who, with his two friends, changed her life forever. Someday, somehow, she’d return, exact a just revenge — and free herself from fear, and the powerful family that could destroy her.


I received a copy of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

I’ve always liked books written by Sandra Brown. Before all the trend for new adult and erotic romance erupted, romance novels were dominated by authors like her. Sandra Brown, Nora Roberts, etc. they were household names.

This book is really a great story about a girl who was victimized by three boys and lost her very first love in a tragic way and who grew up into a woman intent on making those who hurt her pay for their sins as well as finding a way to end their corruption.

Sandra Brown gave an amazing narrative. Her storytelling is one of the best. This book may have initially come out years ago, but the universal truth in this book is still definitely true for all ages. And the truth is that it is so easy to becom a viction and every victim will, at one point or another, work on getting revenge. However, we should also not lose sight of our individual goal which is to be happy, loved and free.

Breath Of Scandal is truly a book that should be read at least once in one’s lifetime. I really loved this book. It was something I could not put down, even when the sun was also up and I still haven’t had any sleep all night long.
