Author on Author Book Review ~ "Breach" by K. I. Lynn

Genre: Erotica
Medium: Available in eBook format. I believe paperback format will be available at a later date.
Narrative: First person of Delilah “Lila” Palmer

Summary: Delilah Palmer has control of her life and outward personality, blocking the truth just below the surface. A façade meant to be normal and hide the scars of her childhood. She’s made a good life for herself, became a lawyer, and is free from the tortured past that haunts her daily. Until he comes along and breaks open the cracks.

Nathan Thorne has a past of his own. On the surface he is loved by all, personable, extroverted; everything Delilah isn’t. Hidden beneath is a dark and tormented man that only Delilah has to power to unveil.

Crammed in a small office together they see through each other’s masks, and the draw becomes too much, igniting an explosive relationship. Holloway and Holloway Law has a strict non-fraternization policy, forcing them to conceal their breach. Despite their efforts, separation becomes impossible, deceptions escalate, and Nathan has trouble coping; teetering on the edge of being overtaken by his past demons.

What secrets does he harbor that could keep him from giving in? What keeps him from healing and moving forward? And Delilah, where does she fit into all this turmoil?

Can they accept love and deal with all the trials that come their way when secrets are exposed? Or will they fall through the cracks of their pasts and be consumed by all that haunts them?


The Prologue literally thrusts you into the illicit affair between Delilah “Lila” Palmer and Nathan Thorne. To say I was panting by Chapter One is not an understatement. This is defiantly one of those novels that are for mature audiences only and not suitable for reading at work.

The title, “Breach”, gives you the feeling of why Nathan and Lila’s relationship is forbidden. It is not in the way you might think. At first thought, I was expecting a boss/secretary scenario. I was happily surprised to find Lila and Nathan as equals, sharing an office while working as Contract Lawyers. The fact that they were on the same level was a wonderful treat for me. The reason for their clandestine relationship to be shunned was their law firm’s strict “no fraternization” policy. That policy causes Lila and Nathan to keep their very naughty times to themselves.

Since the story is told from Lila’s point of view, I believe we got an extremely accurate portrait of the beautiful, scarred woman. Yes, we are all flawed in some way, but not reminded of it every second of our childhood. Poor Lila was. I did feel sorry for her, though I’m sure the strong-willed woman Lila has become would want pity from no one. I admire the strength Lila has acquired to do her job, yet her self-image is severely damaged.

That leads us to Nathan. All of us have scars of some kind. For Nathan there are just as many on the inside as there are on the outside. I love that he can overlook all the other attractive females in the office that Lila dubs “The Boob Squad”. Lila might not understand Nathan’s motivation for breaching their firm’s cardinal rule, but she can’t stop herself from wanting him.

This novel is listed as Erotica for a reason. The sex scenes are deliciously dirty and there are plenty of them. There should be a warning on the cover: Reading this book may cause rapid heart rate and soaked underwear. Continue with caution.

Overall, the story was a smooth read as I read it in less than a day. The sex is usually the main focus of Erotica novels, but I love that Lynn gave her characters such interesting back-stories as well as the “Wham-Bam-Thank-You-Ma’am”. The end of the story left me desperately wanting more. Thank God Lynn included the first chapter for the next installment in the trilogy, “Infraction”.

K.I. Lynn spent her life in the arts, everything from music to painting and ceramics, then to writing. Characters have always run around in her head, acting out their stories, but it wasn’t until later in life she would put them to pen. It would turn out to be the one thing she was really passionate about.

Since she began posting stories online, she’s garnered acclaim for her diverse stories and hard hitting writing style. Two stories and characters are never the same, her brain moving through different ideas faster than she can write them down as it also plots its quest for world domination…or cheese. Whichever is easier to obtain… Usually it’s cheese.
