REVIEW – Irresistibly Broken by J. Saman


Zaxton Monroe is rich, powerful, infuriatingly gorgeous, and thinks I’m working for him to ruin his life. Problem is, he might not be wrong.

Aurelia Whitlock is an ex-stepsister I forgot long ago. Until she shows up as a design intern at my fashion company. And that’s the easy part.

The part where she stirs my lifeless blood, drawing me away from my soulless, miserable side is another.

She has no business being here. Her presence far from a coincidence, the more I learn of her secrets and troubled past, the more perilous things become for me.
I can’t trust her. I can’t fire her. And I can’t claim her full lips with mine.

Now it’s a keep your friends close and your enemies even closer situation. Except keeping this stunning woman who surprises me at every turn close isn’t as easy as it sounds.

She’s a delicious load of sunshine wrapped in smiles and enticing laughter. And did I mention the mouth on her? The one that challenges me and calls me the worst sort of names. The one I can’t stop staring at or fantasizing about.

I’m in trouble. So much trouble. My former bandmates, my brothers in arms and blood, well, they’re at just as much of a loss as I am on how to fix this. So where does that leave me?

In one hell of a mess with a woman who has the power to destroy everything. Including what’s left of my heart.

“I am my own hero. Scars are simply souvenirs you collect along the way. They make you tougher and you learn from them.”


Zaxton and Aurelia….oh how much I love these two. Each of them are broken in their own way, each of them working towards their own goals and closed off. From the moment they cross paths again there is distrust and attraction. The chemistry between these two is sizzling and banter between them was fantastic from start to finish. I completely devoured their story. I was absolutely hooked from start to finish.

Zaxton has been closed off to relationships since the loss of his girlfriend, though the man is no stranger to having some fun but he never lets things get serious. Aurelia hasn’t had the best life, she has been on her own from a young age. However, despite everything she has worked hard for everything she has earned. I loved her strength and determination. They are both broken, yet together they found a way to heal those broken pieces and knock down the walls.

I loved the secondary characters in this story from Lamar to Zaxton’s friends. I can’t wait to jump back into this series and this world.

If you’re looking for a forbidden, workplace, enemies to lovers, age gap, ex stepsiblings romance this is one to check out.
