Growing up in small town Wisconsin, Carly Turner couldn't wait to escape when she graduated high school. Now, she's living the life in New York City, even if she isn't seeing her name in lights like she used to dream about at night. She's living paycheck-to-paycheck, working behind the scenes in small theaters off Broadway. When there's an equipment malfunction the week before opening night, Carly makes a call that winds up changing everything.
Life in the city isn't all it's cracked up to be. While she feels like she's getting closer to making the move from behind the scenes to center stage, she misses being surrounded by people who understand the quirks that come from living in a town of five thousand people. That, and the fact that he's sexy as sin, make Adam everything she feels like she's missing.
The only problem? He's her best friend's kid brother...
Adam Sanders wants to settle down, find a good woman and start a family like he sees so many of his friends doing. But how is he supposed to meet Ms. Right when he's constantly on the road for work? When he's sent to New York to handle a repair that would typically be contracted out as a favor to his boss, he's just about to his breaking point.
Everything changes when the stagehand sent to open the theater for him is none other than his big sister's childhood friend. The same girl he lusted after as a teenager. Could this be fate's way of showing him that he was looking in the wrong place for love?
As Adam and Carly's friendship develops, lines will be crossed and rules will be broken. Will they be able to come out the other side without destroying everything they had back in Brooklyn?

Now I'm an idiot lol I have not read Bent yet.... and when I agreed to review an ARC copy of Breaking The Rules I had not realized it was book 2 in the series... That being said the only problem I had in Breaking the Rules (not even a problem really) was I wanted to know more of Julia and Micahs story (haha shame on me) So this is for SURE my favorite H.B Heinzer book to date. I mean she never disappoints with her writing, she has such a flair for story telling that we just get so sucked into these characters lives we feel like we are living it right along with them. Carly and Adam were made for each other, Adam was really the all American guy but with a little bit of a cooky side (like his green chucks) I loved that about him not every guy needs to be a heart throb (not sayin Adam wasnt a hunk tho) Little difference like that is what made this book special to me. Carly had a tough upbringing which has left her with a guarded heart and Adam doesn;t understand why she just won't fully let him in and their already hard long distance relationship ends up on even shakier ground. Can Carly over come her fears? Can Adam give her enough time to do so? Find out!!
