Breaking the Nexus by Lindsay Avalon

Throughout history, myths and legends of extraordinary creatures have been told and retold. Fantastic tales of demons and banshees, gryphons and dragons, and of course, magic. Stories that every child grows to learn are nothing more than fantasy…or are they?

Beyond the world you see lies a hidden realm, the Mythrian Realm, inhabited by all of the creatures you’ve been told are mere fiction. Only one thing lies between humans and the truth: the Nexus. A magical barrier erected millennia ago to separate the two realms, it has stood the test of time. Until now.

For Mythrian Sha Phoenix, magic is nothing new. But when she stumbles upon a portal on the verge of collapse, her fate will forever change. Pulled through the portal into the Human Realm, she lands in the middle of Detective Connor Flynn’s brutal murder scene. Soon it is obvious someone is using blood magic to try to bring down the Nexus. Together, Connor and Sha must work to unravel the secrets before the barrier falls and the realms collide.

The Nexus is breaking and all hell is about to unleash…literally.

What could be more terrifying than waking up somewhere not home to you, somewhere strange and without your powers or even the knowledge of what you have landed into. 

That's what Sha goes through when she falls through from her worked to one she has never been to before. She lands in the middle pf a really bad spot and has to figure everything out.

But one thing she does know, is she is falling for the man who is trying to help her, and she can't explain it but there is a pull between them and she can't keep her mind off him. 

They must work together to fight their attraction as well as save the world from someone they are not ready to deal with.

I loved this book.  I am literally on the edge of my seat waiting for more. The power between Sha and Connor is so hot, so real and yet unreal that you can't help but be pulled into everything with them. 

You WILL want to read more, because Lindsay left it in such a cliffhanger that there is nothing left for you to pull out of. You have to know more, you NEED to find out how it ends. I know I do. The writing was so amazing that you feel what they do, you want more, and can hear everything in your own head. 

I am telling you now, you are gonna want to run out and get this book as soon as it is available. I know I for one want an autographed copy to put on my shelf so I can read it whenever I want. 

Author Bio:

I am a wife, a programmer, and now an author. I have an adorable mini Schnauzer and more books than I have room for. I love reading romance because no matter what may be happening in my life, I can always count on my books to end happily ever after. The day I met my husband was the day I truly began believing in happily ever after. After hearing me complain a few too many times that I had “nothing” to read despite the hundreds of paperbacks scattered around the house, my husband began suggesting I write my own stories. When I finally took his advice I discovered that although I enjoy my day job as a software engineer, my true calling is to be an author. 

My sister drilled into me an appreciation for fantasy and mythology, something I try to bring to my books. My debut novel, Breaking the Nexus started as a book written for NaNoWriMo and has grown to so much more. It was the conduit that introduced me to a fantastic group of independent authors who have changed my life in unimaginable ways. 

When I’m not writing, I’ve found a passion for blogging and interviewing fellow authors. I also love reading (of course!), baking, crochet, sewing sock monkeys, playing video games, and all sorts of random crafts. I have an incurable love of rubber duckies and stuffed animals, and I believe nobody should have to grow up if they don’t want.
