A fight for what’s right becomes a fight for his life.

As guilt plagues him, Matthew Elliott’s world begins to spiral out of control. The harder he holds on, the more it slips through his fingers, and he’s helpless to stop it.

Entering into the underground cage-fighting scene, he starts out fighting for what’s right. The deeper he gets, the more guilt consumes him – the more pain he takes for his penance, and he’s soon fighting for more than justice.

He’s fighting for love.

He’s fighting for his life.

My View:

When I first read Point of No Return, there was no sequel. Matt and Kira rode off into the sunset together and lived happily ever after. Since it’s first re-publication, however, Walker has offered us the next chapter in Matt and Kira’s life. As happy and light as PoNR was, Breaking Point is the opposite.

Breaking Point is gritty. It deals with the guilt and violence. It deals with secrets and lies. It deals with one man’s descent into his own personal hell. That man, of course, is Matt. Still struggling with his part in Kira’s abduction almost a year earlier, he is determined to keep Kira safe at all costs. Even if that cost is his relationship with the man himself.

Breaking Point is heartbreaking. It is violent. It is a struggle to read. That struggle stems from how much I love these two main characters. I want them to have that happy ending. However, they have to work hard for it. They have to examine themselves and their relationship. What they see isn’t always pretty, and they have to deal with that, together and as individuals.

One of my favorite parts of Breaking Point is getting to know Yumi (Kira’s mother) that much more. She is certainly one of my favorite maternal characters I have read in a long time. Her husband isn’t a slouch either. I love these two people almost as much as I love Kira and Matt for so many reasons — not the least of which is how good they are to Matt.

When you finish reading Breaking Point, you know that Matt and Kira are in a good place, finally. However, you will want to continue to series to see how they finally get their HEA.
