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.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
BREAKING MR. CANE is book 2 in the Cane series. It is NOT a standalone and must be read in order. Also, CLIFFY warning! There’s at least three books in the series (I’ve heard there’ll be four books but I’m not 100% sure).
After the crazy as hell cliffhanger that left us on edge in book one, book two takes off with an emotional and heart-rendering beginning. Kandy is attempting to acclimate to college life far from her family and worse, far from Cane. Months apart should have dulled the ache but no. She is still desperately in love with him. Meanwhile, Cane is dealing with the fallout from the scuffle with Kandy’s dad Derek (and Cane’s best friend). Plus, he has to find a way to contain his off her rocker ex girlfriend, Kelly.
This book is full of emotional ups and downs! I’ll admit to shedding a tear or two, then being totally pissed off at the way some of the secondary characters acted and THEN swooning when Kandy and Cane came together. It’s well written though I feel like there were some parts that didn’t quite FIT into the story, there were some scenes that maybe could have happened a different way to make it feel more believable.
But the best thing about the story for me was watching Kandy mature and grow into a woman with her own thoughts and opinions. All of the negative attitudes from certain people around her were hurtful and horrible but I totally admired how Kandy stayed strong and kept her love for Cane the priority. And of course, Cane just keeps getting yummier! Everything he does for Kandy to keep her and to make her happy? Swoon fest! That doesn’t even include everything he does for his sister and his mama. Cane is absolutely my favorite character from this series.
Kudos to Ms. Williams on giving us another “what the hell just happened/oh my Gawd I must read the next book” cliffhanger! Not that I’m big on cliffys but if I have to endure one, I’m glad it’s one that has me eager to dive into the next chapter. Told from dual POVs with a few chapters from crazy Kelly. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.

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.
