Présentation de l'éditeur

Richard Carr has the kind of life most people would envy. Partner in a major Los Angeles law firm, married to the man of his dreams, Richard seems to have it made – except for the lie he’s been living for the past forty-odd years.

On special nights, in the company of kinky friends, Richard disappears inside Renee, his sexy, dominatrix alter-ego. Strong, sassy and flirtatious in her red and black corset, Renee is who Richard truly is on the inside – and who he longs to be outside of the dungeon.

But starting his – her – transition doesn’t provide the relief Renee had hoped for. Her business partners demand that she go back to dressing as a man at the office, while Robert, her husband and fellow Dominant, can’t conceal his shock as the man he married disappears a little bit more every day.

Their one true point of connection remains in the dungeon – in the person of Jase Hewitt, the submissive they both share. But when a devastating tragedy shatters Jase and sends him running to his Masters for comfort, it quickly becomes apparent that Robert’s love for Jase extends far beyond their Dom/sub roles…

And Renee faces a choice – abandon her journey toward becoming the person she truly is inside, or risk losing the man she loves.

Sometimes in my reading, I like to step out of my comfort zone and try something new and/or different. With this book, I stepped so far out I was afraid I might get lost and never find my way home again!

First, there is D/s involved in this story. I have read perhaps 3 books which include this set of behaviors and, frankly, I just don't get it, know I never will and so I generally avoid stories of this nature.

Second, save for the Chaz Bono story, I had/have no real grasp of transsexuality; to wit, even after some Internet research, I'm not sure if I should be using the term transsexual or transgender. Guess I have a lot to learn.

But I trust Cat Grant as an author (even if I don't necessarily like all her books) so I decided to take a chance on a story that includes a topic I don't like as well as one about which I know nothing. And I am so glad that I did.

Her writing was strong and quite evocative. I felt the yearning that Richard/Renee went through in dealing with his/her emotions; I understood the confusion and withdrawal his/her husband, Robert, experienced as Richard/Renee began the transition. It was so very poignant at times and I despaired of a happy resolution to the story.

I did, however, have a wee bit of trouble understanding the fact that the two of them were doms to Jase, a submissive they both shared, even though Jase was in a committed albeit troubled relationship with another man. But I chalked those feelings up to the fact that I'm not keen on D/s relationships in the first place (see explanation above), decided to go with the proverbial suspension of disbelief and by the end of the book, the story of these three men came together in a most acceptable and gratifying manner.

More importantly, this story opened my eyes, and my heart, to those men and women faced with the issue of gender identification and expression, the ensuing emotions and turmoil involved and the stigmas and biases they suffer from the transphobic population.

I highly recommend this book not only because it is so well written but also because I think it is an excellent starting point should you wish an introduction to transgender characters.

I should probably start by saying that Cat Grant is an automatic buy author for me. She has a way of bringing things out and putting them on paper that either explain what I feel but can't get out in words or gives me a new perspective on something I'd never thought of before.

This book did NOT disappoint! Aside from the fact that it pushed all my buttons (with the sex, the kink, and the realism), Breaking Free was a fountain of emotional turmoil that resolved itself in a realistic but still wonderful way. As a reader, my heart broke for Renee as she struggled to be true to herself and keep the important parts of her old life with her as she embarked on her new journey. I also cried for Robert, who was trying so hard to support the person he loved, but had his own internal battles to fight. And having read Guarded, Jase already had a corner of my heart and to read about what happened before he got his happy-ever-after about crushed me.

The book isn't just about tears, though. It's about celebrations and victories and success where failure seems the more likely option and living instead of barely existing. It's about change and growth and life and love in a multitude of forms. It's about submitting to what is really needed and standing strong in the face of other adversity. It's about reality well lived.

If you're looking for a book that will tug at your heartstrings and lift you up on wings of hope and you can enjoy kink and unconventional heroes/heroines, I'd really recommend you give this book a try.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best stories I've read in a very long time 18 janvier 2015
Par Chris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
5 out of 5 stars

Normally I’d start off my review with a quick summary of the story, but this book kind of blew me away. In a good way, that is, and I just had to share that first because this is definitely a book you should be reading. Okay, so that’s totally my opinion, but I bet if you read Breaking Free, you’ll agree with me.

Richard is not happy with who he is in his day to day life; he knows he doesn’t fit the body he’s in and that something has to change before he loses his sense of self. The only time he feels good about himself are the nights he lets Renee out to play, when he and his partner Robert host their BDSM parties. Until one night he decides to debut Renee out in public while out to dinner with their friends. Dropping his voice to a husky murmur while donning a long blonde wig, a beautiful dress, killer shoes and the perfect shade of lipstick, Richard becomes the very beautiful Renee. This isn’t enough, though; Richard still feels uncomfortable in his own skin, and this leaves him unsettled and battling depression.

Robert loves Richard with a fierce love, but he’s unsure of Richard as Renee. They’ve discussed how Richard feels but while you might agree when talking about something, seeing it can change how you feel. Robert wants Richard to be happy but once confronted with Renee, he’s not sure he feels the same thing for Renee as he does for Richard. As hard as it is for Renee to be Richard, it’s hard for Robert to immediately feel the same for Renee as he did Richard. This is as much a change for him as it is for Renee, and it’s hard for both to deal with Renee’s transition. This change is life altering, and their reactions to each other during Renee’s transition could damage their long-term relationship, permanently.

This book is actually the prequel to Guarded. In this story you get not just Robert and Renee’s complete story, but see Jase and Eric’s story and how Jase became a Dom. The focus, though, is on Richard’s transition to Renee, how those choices affect both Robert and Renee, and ultimately, are they able to work through their issues. Cat Grant handled what is a very hard decision in any person’s life with a great amount of care and a healthy dose of reality.

Instead of just showing that making the decision to transition from one sex to another was all lightness and roses, she showed that it’s not and that it affects not just the person transitioning but everyone around them. Jase didn’t see anyone other than Renee when Richard started transitioning in just the clothing aspect. Robert, on the other hand, took it very badly. He could only focus on the gender aspect at first. Being a gay male, now in a relationship with a woman, well, that wasn’t who he’d intended to be with the rest of his life. In his mind he entered into a long term relationship with Richard, and he loved Richard with his whole heart and soul. Renee wasn’t Richard, even though she’s actually the most important part of Richard.

I went into Breaking Free not knowing what to expect, other than I had absolutely adored Renee in Guarded. I’d never read another book with a character transitioning from one sex to another. I really felt that the balance in this story of how Renee felt as both sexes, going through the transition, and also the choices she makes as she goes through the transition were very well written and again, handled very well. Robert’s reactions, his feelings for Jase, and how he deals with Renee’s transition, or rather, how he didn’t deal with it. Reading that moment when Jase actually gets Robert to see that Renee is no different than she was when she showed the outer image of Richard, that moment and Robert and Renee reconnecting were perfect moments, the kind of moments you live to read for in any story. Those moments are what I love to share with other readers, so don’t pass this story up.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A realistic, positive approach to gender, sex, and love 21 septembre 2014
Par Bending the Bookshelf - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
OMG, this was one of the sexiest, most beautiful, most emotionally powerful books I have read in a very long time! Breaking Free is such a fantastic story, so beautifully told, and with such a realistic, positive approach to gender, sex, and love.

Cat Grant herself seemed a bit cautious about the transgender element in her introduction, but I think she absolutely nailed it. The physical, the mental, and the emotional development of Richard/Renee are all handled beautifully. It all begins with Richard "disappearing" inside Renee, who is described as "his sexy, dominatrix alter-ego," but it's not long before he come to accept that it's Richard who is the illusion, and Renee who is the inner reality.

What complicates matters is the fact that Richard is married to Robert, the man of his dreams. An out and proud gay couple, their life undergoes a significant upheaval with Renee's decision to begin transitioning, and Cat does an amazing job of taking an honest look at the impact such a transition can have on a relationship. It's not easy, presenting challenges that certain tug at the heartstrings, but that's life - raw, honest, and un-romanticized.

While the story could have worked very well without the subplot of Jase, their shared submissive, whom Renee fears Robert is destined to leave her for is almost unnecessary, it does allow Cat to really explore the differences between sex and love, just as she's already looking at the differences between sex and gender. It's actually quite a complex story here, with the kind of deep observations you don't always find in an erotic romance.

I loved the tentative emergence of Renee into their lives, her nervous reluctance to demand her rights in the office, and the sisterhood she creates with the women around her. In many ways, this could be considered a trans-feminist tale, but that's only another element of what is a well-rounded, well-told, well-loved romantic tale. Just beautiful . . . and oh so inspiring.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely loved it 6 août 2014
Par Christy Loves 2 Read - Publié sur Amazon.com

"The way I was dressed now didn't feel like a costume. It felt like me….
For the first time, I saw myself the way I'd always imagined. No more conservative suits, or silk ties that strangled me. No stubbly shadow darkening my cheeks. Nothing to make that voice in my head scream, Impostor!"

I first met Renee and Robert in 'Guarded', and now in 'Breaking Free' I was getting the pleasure of their story and, also, some of the background on Jase who was one of the main characters in 'Guarded'. I'll freely admit that as a psych major, the concept of being born in the body of the wrong gender doesn't strike me as odd, or strange, or unusual. I think it must be a prison for the individual and I can't begin to imagine how it must feel to look in the mirror and hate what you see. So you can imagine that my heart went out to Renee, right from the beginning.

Renee and Robert have been together for ten years, and Robert knows the difficulties Renee has always had as Richard. Robert knows her thoughts and her dreams and, in fact, it was Robert's suggestion that Renee dress in the feminine fetish wear for their sessions as a way to let some of the tension out. Unfortunately, it just reminded Renee that being a woman is who she really is and it's time to let her outside match her inside. Easier said than done, however. Robert tries to be supportive and understanding, but this is difficult for him, also.

Renee's partners at her law firm are less understanding and problems arise there even though Renee is their chief litigator. When the partners insist that Renee must return to wearing Richard's clothes into the office, Renee resigns and takes her clients with her, opening her own firm, out of her house for now. Luckily for Renee, her best friend, Mel, comes with her too as her paralegal, and they snap up another employee for the firm who got fired for being loyal to Renee. Yeah, her partners are transphobic bigots.

Renee's hopes that it'll just take time for Robert to acclimate to the changes begins to fade as their marriage becomes more and more fraught with tension and upset. The final betrayal, in Renee's eyes, is seeing Robert in a scene with Jase and realizing that Robert is in love with Jase. Jase makes it very clear to Robert that he loves him as his Master, his mentor, and his friend, but that's as far as it goes. Renee lets Robert know, in no uncertain terms, that she's going to continue with her transition and he can either get on board or go away. I really loved her! She had such amazing strength, power, and will.

I absolutely loved this book, even more than I thought I would. Both Renee and Robert were amazing characters with so much depth that it was impossible not to root for them and want to see their happy ending. The glimpses of Jace and getting the background on his story with Eric was something I didn't realize I needed, until I got it. This is a beautiful story and one I could only hope every single transgendered person could have. Thank you, Cat, I think you did a wonderful job!
