Breaking Free by Cathryn Fox

I listened to the unabridged audio version of Breaking Free by Cathryn Fox and narrated by Muffy Newtown. Listening time for Breaking Free by Cathryn Fox is 2 hours, 44 minutes.

Breaking Free by Cathryn Fox was the second novel I read (or listened to is the more correct term) over the Labor Day weekend. It was a short novella and one that was a mindless bit of fun if you like erotica novellas.

I liked the narration of Breaking Free by Cathryn Fox by Muffy Newtown. The story line was pure fantasy filled with insta-love, along with plenty of insta-sex when the main character Alaska Rossi wins a trip to Eden, an island retreat during break from school. 

Breaking Free has a predictable final outcome at the end of the novella, of course. The writing for this book was decent, but then again I wasn't expecting much from it. It's laughable when 'sex' is portrayed as some sort of cure all in some scenes. A few other scenes in this novella that had my eyes rolling as it was a tad cheesy. 

The following is a summary for Breaking Free by Cathryn Fox from Amazon:
Spring break at college is supposed to be a time of fun and parties, but Alaska Rossi, a.k.a. Janey Smith, is on lockdown thanks to her father's mafia dealings. She wants only to party down with the rest of her classmates. At least her hot, darkly mysterious bodyguard - deep undercover as her dorm's resident assistant - gives her something to fantasize about during her boring nights in confinement.
When Alaska wins a campus radio contest, and is gifted with a special invitation to an exclusive island, she knows it's her chance to break free. After all, Eden is a place where no one knows her name, so what danger could possibly come to her? But when danger appears in the form of a masked man who takes control of all her pleasures, tapping into her darkest fantasies, she begins to wonder if her undercover lover, and the mysterious bodyguard who's deep undercover, are one and the same....
Breaking Free by Cathryn Fox was definitely an escape read, but I am giving it a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!


  1. Hm. Sometimes a bit of erotica is good for the soul, or as you say, for escape.

    1. This novella, definitely won't win any awards for being highbrow that's for sure. But it was a nice retreat for a couple hours of escapism.
