Plot Summary

Kayden Gray wants to be left alone to hunt demons in peace! Peace eludes her when she is forced to hunt with her annoyingly attractive, would-be partner, Micah McKenzie. During their hunt they stumble upon a succubus who strips them of their restraint. After being forced into an intimacy that seemed inevitable, they must deal with the resulting emotional turmoil, and hunt down an ancient demon that is gaining power each time they fall into each others embrace. As they battle death, the succubus, vampires and more, they learn more about one another than they ever expected.

Book Reviews

The following review is from Darque Reviews

Bending to Break is an erotic paranormal romance that starts out in high gear and continues the fast pace throughout the story. Kayden and Micah love to argue and hate to admit they'­re wrong, but with a succubus using her lust filled powers there will be no more denying the way they feel. Ms. Hampton pens a story of supernatural seduction, dark passion and the joys of new-found love. Readers looking for a steamy paranormal tale where the storyline is enticing and the characters are given the green light to explore their lust filled urges, you need look no further than Bending to Break.

A blend of humanity and the vampire that changed her, Kayden Gray spends her nights hunting creatures similar to herself and the other demons that haunt her small town. Forced to pair with Micah Mckenzie, another warrior in the battle, at the urging of her uncle, she's not had a moment of demon hunting peace since. Micah isn't sure if he wants to kiss Kayden or strangle her from one minute to the next, but an encounter with a succubus takes the decision out of his hands. Thrown together in a mad haze of wantonness, Kayden and Micah are mindless with lust as their family members attempt to break the hold the demon of desire has over them. The problem lies in their true feelings, a bond built not only by passion but also their love for one another. A love that threatens the hold Kayden's sire wishes to have on the beautiful hybrid he sees as his perfect bride--a position Kayden has no desire to occupy.

In a story filled with dramatic action sequences that were only icing on the cake compared to the frenzied mating of Kayden and Micah, Bending to Break was just what I needed to break my reading slump. Boredom was a thing of the past as I was sucked into a world where fighting demons is as normal as taking your next breath. Kayden and Micah are a breath of fresh air, their constant bickering kept me in stitches, hot with anger one minute and falling over their flying clothing the next. A.J. Hampton did a great job with her supporting cast, from Kayden's baby sister and her sweet talented cousin to Micah's younger brother who I think will need counseling from all the peep shows he was subjected to. That is why I'm Joyfully Recommending Bending to Break for the month of February. I pray that this is only the beginning and we will see more from this family of fighters because I can't imagine that there won't be a sire or two coming for revenge in the future!
