The deadly man Anna knows as Thomas is still on the loose, and now he's using her as a pawn in a dangerous game with the drug cartel determined to silence her forever. When Thomas and a mysterious masked man capture not only Anna but also her fragile younger sister and her boyfriend, Anna decides it's time to break all the rules-even if it means teaming up with the lesser of two evils.

Anna will do whatever it takes to protect the people she loves and win her life back once and for all. But her true enemies are hidden in plain sight. Before long, Anna will learn that putting her trust in anyone may be the last mistake she ever makes.

My Rating: 5 Roses

A fast-paced, thrilling, and very enjoyable read, The Rules for Breaking was a fantastic YA romantic thriller. I loved this book! It took all the thrills and romance that made book 1 so good, and did it just as well. Loved it!

Anna was great in this book. She started off trying to live a normal life but, with Thomas on the loose, that could only last so long. And, when that normal life shattered, Anna was determined to end the threat and find a way to finally be able to live without fear. She proved, again, that she was strong, clever, and willing to do anything to keep the people she loved safe. I liked her in book 1, and I liked her just as much in book 2.

Ethan was still absolutely adorable. Now fully drawn in to the danger, he showed just how resilient he could be. He was determined to help Anna and keep her safe. And he was still so sweet and gentlemanly, even in some very dire circumstances. I just adored him.

The romance was lovely. More than being a sweet couple, Anna and Ethan were a badass team. They worked together and helped each other survive their chaotic situation. I thought they were perfect together.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were tons of thrills and secrets that kept me on the edge of my seat. And more than one person was not who they seemed and that led to a few surprises along the way. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was great. There is room for another book with the way it ended, but most of the loose ends were tied. So, we'll see about a book 3.

The Rules for Breaking was a brilliant YA romantic thriller. With romance, surprises, secrets, and tons of thrills, this book was fantastic. Fans of book 1, you won't be disappointed with this one. And, YA lovers, this is definitely a series worth checking out.
