Break Out by Kylie Kent

Break Out by Kylie Kent offers an entertaining escape, though it requires a bit of suspension of disbelief when it comes to the hockey elements. While the story is decent overall, the ending left something to be desired, feeling somewhat forced and causing a dip in pacing.

The narrative follows Liam King, whose reputation in the NHL has taken a hit due to a scandalous incident and compromising photographs. Aaliyah, daughter of the team’s owner, takes on the task of rehabilitating Liam’s image and ensuring her father’s investment pays off. As Liam’s assigned babysitter, Aaliyah finds herself navigating his cocky demeanor, surprising sensitivity, and her own growing attraction to him. Their interactions are fraught with sparks, spice, and underlying danger, particularly given the Monroe family’s shady dealings.

However, the final portion of the book feels rushed and condensed, detracting from the overall enjoyment and causing a drop in the rating. While Break Out provides an enjoyable read, it falls short of delivering the full potential that readers may have hoped for.
