"Break Me In" is the third book in the 'Geek Kink' series by Sara Brookes. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel. This book is well written. The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic. I loved that some of the characters from the other two books made appearances but they still kept the story line. Overall, this was a magnificent book and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
