Breaking Down Her Walls by Erin Zak

Erin Zak really wow’d me with this wonderful story.

Julia is a runner. She takes off again after her first meeting with her birth parents goes terribly wrong. When her car breaks down in the middle of nowhere in the state of Colorado, she panics until a local cowboy offers to pay for her car repairs in trade for her helping as a ranch hand over herding session. Julia gets stuck into her new job but she can’t stop thinking about the ranch owner and boss, Elena. Elena is the definitive ice queen character but there is something about Julia that she just can’t help but be drawn too. The more time they spend together the more Elena’s walls come down and then Elena’s ex, Penn shows up and Julia starts to worry that this is just another moment of let down in her life. But will she run or stick around and see what life could be with Elena by her side?

This is a love story, 100%! Breaking Down Her Walls had me completely spun. One minute I’m thinking that it’s such a sweet romance, the next I found it sexy as hell then by the end, I had it as an all-encompassing love story that I just adored.

Erin Zak has written Breaking Down Her Walls in third person, present tense and normally I am not a massive fan of that style but Erin Zak wrote it with such finesse, I was immersed in the story from the first chapter.

I really enjoyed the level of angst in the story and found that it created the perfect balance throughout. The sex scenes were fantastic… I mean wow! The build up in the entire book was like foreplay and then when it happened… boom, my brain explodes!!! Very well done.

Just a side note that I love Colorado and this book took me back there to all of the wonderful memories I have from my time there. Secondly how amazing is this cover? Red Chucks? SOLD!

I really can’t wait to see what comes next from Erin Zak because I will be waiting very impatiently.
