Summary Goodreads:

Jason Smith hated the whole idea of relationships and commitment. He got what he needed from girls but that’s where it ended. At least that was how it was supposed to be. After a traumatic event he gets involved with the one girl who could force him to change his ways. Will he be able to commit to her though? Or will he drive her away before he ever has the chance to have her?

Madison and Carter finally found happiness but their lives have just been turned upside down, by someone who refuses to go away. Can their relationship survive the tragedy and pain that he has caused? What if justice doesn’t always win, and the bad guys get away?

What do you do when your whole world is turned upside down? When everything comes crumbling down around you, will you have the will to fight and break down the wall?

Guarded Hearts Series:

Playing With Fire (Guarded Hearts #1)

Madison Stevens has had a shitty life, her mother died at the age four and her father has always blamed her for it. She went through the foster system and is now attending college. Her boyfriend Chris is not willing to share Madison with anyone, not even her friends. 

Her first day at college she meets Carter James, who makes her want everything she never thought she could have. She knows that she should ignore her feelings for Carter, but it's not as easy as it sounds.

As Carter and Madison begin to fall in love, they face many obstacles. Their biggest one is Chris who is not going to let her go easily.

Playing with Fire will be the first book in a three book series. It is about the obstacles that stand in your way on the path to love. It tests the characters strength and commitment to each other on every level from old boyfriend/girlfriends, to insecurities, and throws a little violence and scheming into the mix.

"Chris was like fire. It was pretty to look at but if you got too close you got burnt, and if it wasn’t controlled it would destroy everything in its path. Doing what I was about to do with Carter was dangerous, but what can I say I never had parents to warn me not to play with fire."

**Playing With Fire is for mature audiences only—strong language, and explicit sexual content are apparent.**

My Review:

Breaking Through The Wall by Ashley Piscitelli picked up exactly where book 1, Playing With Fire, left off. It is necessary to read book 1 because it does continue Madison and Carter's story. In this book, we get to follow Nicole and Jason's story. Even though we followed two couples, Madison and Carter did not overpower the book. I understood why once I reached the end of the book ... That psychopath ex-boyfriend is still going to make Madison's life a living hell. I was a bit disappointed that we did not turn the page on that chapter of her life. I was under the impression that this was going to get resolved at the beginning of the book. This book has 4 POV's and what I liked most about it is that the author did not replay the same scene all over again, she picked up where the last character left off. This book had a few twists and turns that I was not expecting and I loved it!

Madison tries to get over all these events that have been happening in her life and with Carter's unconditional love and support she recovers well. I missed reading about these two characters and now that I know we will get more of their story I'm happy! I wanna see Chris behind bars for all he's done to Madison and Carter. Those few ligns that we got to read in his POV at the end of the book got me so mad!!!   

Nicole and Jason were FIREEEE! Wow! I lost count of all the steamy scenes that these two shared. Most of their story revolves around these sexy scenes. I wanted to read more about their feelings for each other and not only about their intimate moments. Jason has a hard time trusting people after what his mom did to their family. Nicole is the only person that is able to get under his skin and break the wall that is protecting his heart. I loved Nicole's personality, she really knew how to drive Jason nuts! LOL!

I can't wait to follow these two couples again in the next book. I did not find a link for Shawn's story, but I really hope he gets one. I can't wait to see what he's been hiding from his friends. 

My Rating:

I give Breaking Through The Wall by Ashley Piscitelli 4 steamy stars! Nicole and Jason had undeniable chemistry together. Once Jason got over his insecurities, he got the normal relationship he always dreamed of.

About the Author:

My name is Ashley Piscitelli. I live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with my husband, two kids, and two dogs. On top of starting a writing career, I am a full-time student and a full-time mom. I love spending time with my kids, although I have to hide away with the computer from them when I am writing! I love being active and being outdoors.

I have always been passionate about writing. I wrote this book in about three months. I love reading romance books! I feel like being able to lose yourself in a book is one of the more exciting aspects. The books I love to read and write will be ones that make you feel for the characters. You should have an opinion on every character in a book whether you love them, hate them, or think they are up to something.

I have always thought that the most important critic is your reader, so I would love to hear from you. If you read the book and loved it or hated it, tell me. As long as it is in a constructive way, I will always answer and interact with you. I want my fans to be open & talk to me what they want for the characters in the story, and what they would  like to see happen.

I hope you all enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
