Breaking Spades by W. Ferraro with Review and GIVEAWAY

Cecille “CeCe” Cervetti lives her life by one rule: Never let a man control her heart, ever again. 
CeCe has built a life to be proud of--she’s successful in business, and in lust.  Men are her playground, to take from, and use to her body’s content. They can only have what she is willing to give, so don't try asking for more.
When an unknown stalker raises the stakes, ripping away her hard won control, CeCe reluctantly seeks help from the first, and last, man she gave her heart to before he vanished from her life--Jarod Gates.
As they struggle to unmask the stalker, CeCe and Jarod learn of each other’s scarred pasts—scars that made them who they are today.  But when her body screams for Jarod’s touch, can CeCe manage to keep her control? Or will Jarod make her question the one rule she’s built her life on?

I live in New England with my young family.  I’m a stay at home mom to two very active children.  For all of you who are familiar with the stress of this job, I decided to complete an item on my bucket list and write a book.  When I’m not writing, you will find me cooking, reading, shopping or being silly with the kids.  In my opinion, one of life’s greatest pleasure is being able to get lost in a book.
I wish you all happy reading and hope you fall in love with the men of Hamden.

Breaking Spades
By W. Ferraro
Review by Wendy @
Shhh, Mommy's in the Bathroom.,.Reading
4.5 stars

I. Loved. This. Book!  This was an up all night, read till my eyes were blurry story.
Right from the get go, I pretty much hated Jarod. He did a pretty shitty thing, with no obvious reason. Jarod had a tough hill to climb to get back in my good graces.
Cece has had her heart ripped out and stomped on, repeatedly, by the same person in a short time span. Once she picked up the pieces, she vowed NEVER let another man close enough to do that again. Men become her playground and nothing more. Don't let them in and they can't hurt you.
When Cece starts receiving gifts from a secret admirer she blows them off at first, but her pseudo-brother Dylan thinks otherwise and decides to take matters into his own hands. Dylan hires his friend that is a PI, and it just happens to be....Jarod. When Cece and Jarod's past and present come together, neither will come out unscathed.
This book is the 4th in the "Hamden Series" and W. Ferraro hit this one out of the park.
The story and dialog flowed well. The "stalker" storyline kept me guessing throughout and I kept changing who I thought it was. These characters kept me on a emotional roller coaster. For the most part the story was fast paced and I didn't feel like the story was dragged anywhere. The intimacy was five stars (cold shower anyone?)
If I had one complaint, it would be that I wished Jarod would have explained things better. Don't get me wrong, I think things were explained, was I was just left wanting a little more.

Over all, this is a must read, and on my reread list (I've already read it twice.)  This is the 4th book in the series, and their are character overlaps, but this could be a standalone too. I have been lucky enough to see W. Ferraro evolve through each story and it just keeps getting better and better. She is an author to keep your eyes on. 

Pending.....I have a few but I'm having issues getting my kindle to put them here. Work in progress...
