Phoebe Alexander is one author that comes to mind when I think of hot and sexy stories. Rule Breaker does not disappoint. Alexander has built up her books with confidence, building, and strong complex characters. I often feel like the characters can be close like friends in the “normal” life. Alexander brings out so many emotions within myself that I feel like I am in the story as well. The main theme of the story is about protecting loved ones. In this story Athena has a husband who recently retired and wants to bring another partner to their bed. Athena has a lot going on besides what her husband is asking of her. She is also trying to save a magazine business. There are rules out there to follow within the business world, relationships, and marital romance. Will Athena be able to figure out what to do? What rules are ok to break when others are not to be broken?
Rule Breaker by Phoebe Alexander a five-star read is not for the faint of heart. I adore this author and she never lets me down, her stories are always filled with passion and drama and some humour throw in as well, but there is also a sublime plot running through that just gets you. Office romance isn’t one I usually enjoy, it’s a little too close to my current role and its so far away from my day to day that I don’t enjoy, but this time I really did. I must say that above all else this one tugged at more than just my heart strings, there is something special about this whole story and you would be sorry to miss Athena, Warren and Ramsey.
Phoebe Alexander is definitely becoming one of my all-time favourite authors. She continues to captivate the readers with the epic storyline and even better characters.
This book was hot in all the right places. The characters were well developed and really bring the best out of the story. They are real, relatable and you really connected with them and their journey in this read.
I absolutely loved the plot points of this read it held me until the very end. You cannot fault this author on how she writes steamy scenes, they are classy and well put together.
This book is high on my recommendation list, along with all of Phoebe Alexander’s books. It is another read that shouldn’t be missed!

Rule Breaker by Phoebe Alexander is a romance story with a twist that is hot, hot, hot. Phoebe is known for turning up the heat and she does not disappoint. I read it in one day, on the bus on the way to work, at lunch, on the way home on the bus and last night. I was so immersed that I could not put it down. There are a few characters that you want them to go away but the main characters just hit the spot. I loved Warren he just cracked me up with his excitement of his fantasies coming to life.
What happens when your husband wants to explore other things sexually? What he wants is a “Hotwife” and he may just get what he wants.
I will not give you any of the story as you need to sit and read it for yourself. Suffice it to say you will not be disappointed. You may also find yourself in need of a cold shower!

Once again I am just a girl staring at her computer screen wondering where to start with another fantastic Phoebe Alexander novel. I can’t possibly do this storyline justice outside of what has already been said in the blurb, and frankly I couldn’t bear to ruin a single thing with spoilers so you won’t find them here. For all the fabulous details you will have to take my highest recommendation to discover the wonder that is a Phoebe Alexander novel.
I will tell you I adored the characters in this book. Athena is a fierce woman who has embraced herself and is doing her best to live her best life. Warren was funny and doting, something I really loved seeing and made him relatable and lovable. Ramsey is the sexy heat of the book really and sounds swoon-worthy. The ‘thriple’ that ensues is one sexy, intriguing, and enjoyable read! Prepare for the steamy scenes that Phoebe Alexander is famous for doing so well. I know there were several tall glasses of ice water consumed during the reading of this book lol. I can’t wait to see what else Ms. Alexander has in store for us!
That was, without a doubt, the hottest book I’ve ever read. I love these characters. There are so many twists and turns that you never see the end coming. Such an amazing job writing a very realistic, believable story. I got completely lost in this book and felt like I WAS Athena, which is the ultimate goal of any book IMO. This was my first Phoebe Alexander book-but it definitely won’t be my last! Incredible job. 5 stars.
Rule Breaker by Phoebe Alexander is such a sexy, steamy, contemporary romance that focuses on an MFM threesome with some drama, intrigue, a little suspense, office romance elements, and plenty of emotion.
I have read all of Ms. Alexander’s books now and I can always count on her to deliver a captivating read. I love that Ms. Alexander never fails to up the ante with each book she delivers- each one slightly eclipsing previous ones. She’s able to create sizzling, interesting, and entirely addictive stories- with a fully developed cast of relatable, quirky, everyday people who come across as entirely realistic, believable, and quite endearing.
On an interesting note, this book seems to be a crossover with Game Changer by Sylvie Stewart, as the two books share characters, stage, and other details. I really enjoyed both books, and loved the clever, entertaining, and original stories both authors produced using the shared elements. While both books can be read as standalones, I really recommend reading both!
Athena Lennox is the editor of a lifestyle magazine whose readership has decline over the years. It is serious need of a restyle and revamp. She has a crack team assembled and is determined to turn things around. She and her husband Warren have a great life. Warren is now retired, and their children have left the nest. He’d like her to retire too, but she’s worked too hard to get to where she is.
Warren would love to spice things up and add some more sizzle to their relationship. But Athena isn’t all that convinced, especially now that she has more demands with work. Enter, stage right, Ramsey Pearce- the new marketing director, who’s very easy on the eye. Add a little drama, a few twists, some emotion, an extra dollop of sexy, and this story really takes off! What happens you ask? Well you really should grab yourself a copy and discover all the sinfully hot details for yourself. You won’t regret it!
Can’t wait to see what comes next!
Thank you, Ms. Alexander!

I have a rule for myself that is; if I cannot define a word, I must look it up. RULE BREAKER had me break my own rule because I thought I knew what a certain word/lifestyle is, but I was wrong.
RULE BREAKER has a double story line involving corporate politics “Why do all men just assume if two women don’t get along, one must be jealous of the other. Can’t we just legitimately dislike a b!@#h” and relationships? There are twists and turns along the way as well as some super open door sex.
The second aspect of the story is the MFM / HOTWIFE scenario which is well written. The story flows well from beginning to end and I devoured it in one sitting (thumbing past the sex scenes of course hahaha)
I absolutely recommend this story.
This story is a crossover from Sylvie Stewart’s GAME CHANGER and each can be read as a standalone.

Rule Breaker by Phoebe Alexander
What would you do if you were tempted or even pushed to break your biggest rule when it comes to work? Not even for your husband? Well we find out if Athena is the rule breaker here or not in this story.
I love this author, hands down have read all her books to date. And this didn’t disappoint. Was different from her other reads and it was a homerun here!
Loved the characters, the drama, the hot bedroom and non bedroom scenes! This is a must read. I don’t want to say anymore for fear of giving too much away but can i get a Ramsey for myself?
Rule Breaker by Phoebe Alexander
Good Lord where are the ratings past 5 Stars
***Throwing up the white flag***
I give up, every single time I think this author can not write a better book then the last one of hers I finished she goes and writes another one, and tackles yet another topic which I can’t even come close to imagining and by the end makes it all seem normal. Thriple? Really?? My favorite word of the week.
There was one point at about 3⁄4’s of the way through that my heart was racing so fast, I couldn’t read fast enough and I was speed walking with Athena yelling You Go Girl!!
I can’t even …this was such an amazing read…I smiled, I shook my head, I was angry, I was flustered, I was in love, I was running around trying to find things to fan myself with…I worked really hard reading this story and I’m wore slap out yet I want to read it all again…
I’m not even going to go into any of the storyline, just know that this is absolutely one of my favorite books so far this year and definitely in the group of my favorites of all time. The writing is perfection and as I learned early on I go into all of this authors books with an open mind and somehow she takes all kinds of topics that I don’t choose to read and has taught me that there is a whole lot more normal then I had ever thought possible and I have built up such a trust in her writing that I know that things I don’t read will always be handled beautifully when I pick up her books. It’s hard to explain and I dont have the words which is why I’m the reader and she’s the author.
