The Breaking Season is the book in K.A. Linde’s Seasons series that I have been waiting for since we first met Katherine Van Pelt in Cruel Money!
Katherine is a socialite. A real ice princess. To the rest of the world, it seems like everything she has ever wanted is at her fingertips. Camden is a master manipulator and always in control. He always gets what he wants and never shows the world what he is feeling or thinking. And, now, their in an arranged marriage . . . a deal meant to benefit them both, even when they don’t even appear to like one another.
Ahhhhh . . . this book was everything! Getting to see the real Katherine and Camden was beyond enlightening and I loved seeing just how much of both their lives were really a facade created for the rest of the Upper East Side. In reality, both are far from perfect. They are both too stubborn and too afraid to let anyone see what they feel which all stems back to the crappy childhoods they both had as they were forced to learn the game of the Upper East Side at a young ages.
The Breaking Season was very emotional as this couple really did need to break each other before building something real between them. K. A. Linde also touched on some serious topics and handled them with grace and dignity. These little plot twists and secrets revealed so much about the couple and I reveled in every little detail that showed them as emotional humans rather than their social statuses. And, without giving anything away . . . Jem is a gem!
This was my favorite of the series by far! 5 stars!
