Book Review: Slate ( Breaking the Declan Brothers #2) by Kelly Gendron

Book Description
First loves, we all got them. Mine is Slate Declan. He was kind, gentle, and caring. Still, he managed to break my heart. So I put miles between us, and eventually, my heart healed.
I haven't seen Slate in years, but a couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. While I'm visiting my hometown, I'm going to look up Slate Declan. And I plan to break his heart, just as he did mine. I'll remind him of what he has lost, and then I'll prove to him that I've moved on.
It should be real easy, right?
Well, let me tell you, Slate Declan is not the same guy that I left behind. And there's another problem. How do you break someone's heart when they no longer have one?

**I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**

This book made me physically uncomfortable.  I think it glossed over addiction and the work that needs to be done to fight it and stay sober.  The detox process in this book just rubbed me the wrong way. It creeped me out and I actually almost stopped reading. 

I thought it was disrespectful to those that have fought addiction to make it seem that after three days of detox (which he didn't even do because he had a stash in the den somewhere) his urges seemed to be completely under control.  I mean he had no therapy, treatment, nothing.

The sex was manipulative and degrading to me.  I mean Slate has to "punish" her by smacking her ass after his "three day detox" and "fuck her hard".  Ugh. No. Stop it. I didn't like Slate or Rayna for actually agreeing to this crap.


Just no.

Rating: 1 out of 5 (I would give it a ZERO if I could...)
