Book two in the Turning Point series.

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.

The third edition has a new cover and has been re-edited, though no new content has been added.

Told from narcotics detective, Matthew Elliot’s, single POV Breaking Point begins almost a year after Matthew and Kira Franco met in Point of No Return and they are still very much in love.

The story begins with Matt seemingly retiring from the police force to become a MMA cage fighter. To give too much away would spoil the drama, which I really don’t want to do, but you need to know Breaking Point is a roller coaster of emotion with the angst dialed up to 11, folks.

There’s lots of drama, action, and even heartbreak. N.R. Walker puts Matt and Kira through the wringer, testing their bond and love for one another to the breaking point.

This was an entertaining listen. I absolutely love Sean Crisden’s performance of these characters and he (and N.R. Walker) even managed to drag a couple of tears out of me…again. Yes, there were tears but we are given a wonderful, sweet HEA ending to make up for everything we’re put through to get there.

If you read/listened to and enjoyed Point of No Return I highly recommend continuing the series with Breaking Point. Great narration, lots of action and emotion, and I am super glad I have the third, and final, installment in the Turning Point series, Starting Point, to jump into right away.

Audio copy of Breaking Point (Turning Point #2) provided by the author in exchange of an honest review.


I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I'm happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand. I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I'm in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA! My biggest no-no's are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.

A sampling of my "Favorite M/M" stories:
