Synopsis: Folks in town call him a monster—say he’s dangerous. But I know him simply as Elijah Hays, the quiet, gentle giant who works with the horses on my ranch. I can feel him watching me, that steady intense gaze making me crave things I don’t quite understand, burn in a way that frightens me. He’s always kept his distance…until that night.I remember him coming to my rescue, me following him into the barn, giving him his first taste of a woman, and his inexperienced yet barely reined touch turning me to ash.
Now all I can think about is exposing the dark desire I see deep inside him—having him turn those dark desires on me. That low, gritty voice rasping orders in my ear. Those huge, rough hands holding me down when a storm blows in.
I want his surrender. His control. I want to break him…and have him break me…
He smelled of clean sweat, the outdoors, the soap he used. The combination was incredibly sexy. I uncurled his fingers and rested his hand just above my heart. My top was low cut, so we were skin to skin, and my body went up in flames from that simple touch. I watched him, gauging his reaction. His eyes were locked on his fingers. His hands were scarred with cracks and gouges, dark and stained, as clean as they ever got. The contrast against my lighter, smooth, unblemished skin was startling—exciting.
“Is this what you want?” I asked softly.
He dipped his head again, fingers flexing slightly, stare intent, scorching. “More?”
“Yes…please.” Oh God, the way he said it, deep, rough… I jammed my legs together, the throb between my thighs making me reckless, making me do things, say things, I might not usually.
But here in the barn, so quiet and still, it was just us and this moment. I couldn’t stop even if I wanted to. Wrapping my fingers around his thick wrist, the coarse hairs tickling my skin, I lowered his hand slowly, until his palm grazed the swell of my breast. “You ever touched a woman here, Eli?”
He shifted his weight from one foot to the other, jaw tightening, then shook his head.
I could barely believe it. No, he didn’t talk much, kept to himself, but he was smart, gorgeous, and a harder worker I’d never met. “Why not?”
He didn’t answer, just kept his eyes locked with mine. An answer wasn’t necessary. I knew why—the same reason everyone in this town kept their distance. Fear. I moved his hand lower, struggling to breathe when the rough skin of his palm dragged over my hard, aching nipple. He swallowed audibly and made another one of those hungry, low sounds.
“Your skin’s so hot,” I whispered, curling my fingers around his, encouraging him to squeeze me. He flexed them, but he didn’t let up this time, no, he pressed in, tightening around me in a way that had me soaking my panties. “Feels good?”
“Yes, ma’am.” When he said those words, there was a spark of something thrilling in his eyes. His nostrils flared. “Better than good.”
Dear God, it was. What the hell was I doing?
Jesus Christ…..this book……my words may fail me here, because this….and seriously, pardon my french…but my god this book was so fucking hot. Like my husband should thank Sherilee Gray for writing this book hot.
And the story itself was sweet. Small town, farm hand and virgin Elijah falls for his boss. Innocent Elijah who once he gets a taste, can’t get enough. And he wants more, and he gives more and just G.D
Imma tell you something right now. This one is gonna definitely be a re-read. Many, many times 😉

Im a super fan of Sherilee Gray. Ive read allll of her stuff. And, let me tell you – its all good. But people, heads up. I havent read anything like THIS from her before. *eyes wide* This is melt your face off HOT. Call you mother in law to come get the kids HOT. WHOA. Just… Whoa.
Breaking Him is a fairly short, scorchingly hot story about Abigail and Elijah who work together on Abigail’s farm. Elijah is the strong, silent type – a giant of a man (swoon) who knows absolutely nothing about women. He has a rather tragic past and the townsfolk wont let him or Abigail forget it. The story has just enough drama and angst to keep it from being 100% sex, but enough sex to make it 100% delicious! I loved every page! I cant wait to see what Ms. Gray has in store for her next book. YAY!
