The first time I returned to Lancaster was for my brother's funeral. The second time was for Myra.
For twelve years, I lived alone in my cabin, building a life with my two bare hands. I was free from their rules, their policies, and their lies.
They are a cult.
My father is their leader.
To protect my brother's widow, I'm making her my wife. It's her only way out.
But drawn to the purity in her deep blue eyes and the innocence of her gentle voice, I wonder if I'm not the biggest monster of them all. I have to save her from them and myself. Because every second I spend with this timid woman, I fight the urge to claim her.
Make her truly mine.
And I know it's wrong.
I will break her fall—if I don't break her first.

Review: The Breaking Trilogy 1: Break My Fall
Break My Fall by M. Mabie is the first book in her brand new Breaking Trilogy . Told in dual POV between Abraham and Myra, this book has a cliffhanger ending that will leave you chomping at the bit for more. An original story of love in unexpected places, cult mentality, inner strength, and so much more, this was a purely enjoyable read.
Abraham has been away from Lancaster and his father's cult for years now, but when the call comes in telling him of his brothers death he has no choice but to go back into his past, pay his respects and leave again as fast as he can. When he learns of his brothers widow, Myra, and the horrible, misogynistic plans the elders have planned for her he cannot stop thinking about her. Finally he makes a decision, one that could change his life completely, again.
Myra has only ever known life the way she was raised. Not realizing you are in a cult and this isn't the way most people in the world live isn't something she is even aware of. What she does know is that her marriage was never consummated, she isn't as sad at her husbands passing as she thinks she should be, and her brother-in-law Abraham is frightening and enticing all at the same time. When he comes to her offering his help he is the answer to her prayers and for some reason she puts her faith in him. What she doesn't expect is to become his wife, but it's a prospect that doesn't scare her like it should...
For the sake of spoilers I will go no further than to say this was enticing, angsty, filled with anticipation and building emotion and sexual chemistry made all the more interesting because of bother of their backgrounds with the cult. I am on tenterhooks awaiting the next installment, Break Me Down. Enjoy!
This was different then most of the cult stories I have read. I really enjoyed that it took a different path. Abraham comes back to a life he had left behind. Myra has had a serious life change. I loved how these two were brought together. SLOW BURN romances at it’s best. I just love a book that takes on the interesting and dark side of religious cults. I found the story of Abraham and Myra to be realistic and beautifully written. The mystery of the inter workings of the cult and the way a person is molded, and taught to believe is fascinating. This Author took an incredibly interesting subject, added romance, mystery and had me at page one!! This is the first in the series and I’m excited for more.
Cults? Romance? Okay!
This book is a little different from what I’m use to reading from Mo! Cults definitely fascinate me. This girl can write anything, It’s amazing. It kept me wanting and needing more. When reading anything from Mo, it’s always easy to get lost and feel like your right there, very realistic. I really didn’t expect what happened to happen. I can’t wait for the next book!
