Publisher's Summary

A fast-paced, full-length contemporary romance from award winning author, Barbara Samuel.

Mattie O'Neal is on the run. She's chopped off her hair, stolen a car, changed her name, and is hiding in a tiny Arizona town, slinging hash. She thought she was safe - until Zeke Shephard walked through the door.

Rugged, hard-edged Zeke doesn't get involved - but there's something about Mattie's courage that catches his sympathy. When the thugs who want to silence Mattie forever show up, Zeke steps in and takes her to his own private hide away, where the two must decide if the link between them is worth fighting for...and if they can stay alive long enough to explore it.

Perfect Contempary Story

What did you love best about Breaking the Rules?

I love how strong and loving the characters are. Barbara Samuel has a way of pulling you into a story and then it never leaves you. I love how adult the topics are and how doing the right thing is always an underlining theme.

What other book might you compare Breaking the Rules to and why?

Jezebel's Blues, Walk in Beauty, Midnight Rain and anything else by Barbara Samuel.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Zeke finally realize he can't live without Mattie. I also like when Zeke and Mattie work out their demons together.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

At the end when Mattie comes back and Zeke can't get enough of her.

Any additional comments?

I love Barbara Samuel's contemporary stories the most, but her historical novels are good too.
