Product description

Product Description

Leilani Kealoha wants to be set free. Of family expectations. Of generations of prejudice.

Chafing at rules made by the proud Hawaiian men in her family, she yearns to discover herself and hungers to explore the world. Her adventuresome heart? Longs for something even greater, deeper.

The last thing she expects is an East Coast haole surfer to hold the key to everything.

Mason Price is done walking his parents’ path. Done with social acceptance—with cold politics.

On a surfing quest to reinvent himself, Mase finds an exotic beauty standing on his towel. But it’s her feisty bargaining that catches him off guard. When he challenges her with a “Truth or Shots” drinking game, she unwittingly reveals more than she’d intended about herself…and him.

The raw truth stuns him: She’s suffered like he has, is lost like he is—keeps secrets like he does.

But will young love and shared situations be enough to conquer racial and cultural divides?

Lines in the sand…were meant to be crossed.

Reviewed on behalf of A Book Lover's Emporium

Rule Breaker by Kat and Stone Bastion has a classic story; two souls from different worlds, struggling to discover if their love can rise above the obstacles in the way. I was wanting to find out how their tale ended, what damage to their relationship and other relationships in their lives would result. I was taken on a journey to an island paradise with a Young Adult sweetness and angst to spare.

Rule Breaker was a difficult book for me to review for a number of reasons. I enjoyed much of it, but the pace was slow and I found the lead unrelatable. Mase, the hunky surfer, was a character I really liked. I loved his humor, his strength and follow through. He knew what he wanted and had a plan to get it. Leilani, the heroine, was less clear. She is conflicted, but I didn't feel her emotions as powerfully as I would have liked. Perhaps her immaturity, she is 19, may be why I couldn't connect with her.

The story is slow to start, and I was waiting for the action to gear up. As with the setting and surfer lifestyle, the layed back island relaxed vibe was evident in the story's progress, with the excitment building at around 70%.

There are quite strong themes underling the romance in Rule Breaker, oppression, racism and spirituality are core ideas explored. At times I felt this was more a political statement book rather than a romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kat & Stone's Most Soulful Yet... 8 November 2016
By Autumn - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Leilani Kealoha sometimes feels like she’s trapped. Trapped by tradition and trapped by circumstance. The only time she feels free is in the water. She loves the pure euphoria of catching a wave and letting it take her away from all of her troubles.

So when her brother asks her to help him recruit Mason Price to represent his custom made sailboards in competition, she has no idea that he will be the one to challenge everything she knows about life and love.

Mase is used to attention. His natural talent on the waves and golden good looks are a beacon for beach bunnies everywhere.

The trappings of professional surfing don’t appeal to him at all. He’s not in it for the money or even the girls. He’s in it because the solitude of the perfect blue-green wave helps him forget the pain of his childhood and that makes the risk worth it - even if it’s just for a moment.

But when he meets Lani, he knows instantly that he has to discover everything about this beautiful Hawaiian girl. She’s both a mystery and a wide open book. And if she would just trust in his heart, she would see that they had the power to overcome the past and any obstacle that the outside world could ever place in their path – together.

Rule Breaker is Kat and Stone’s most soulful book yet! They have imagined a world where true love can heal any hurt. Love for Mother Earth, love for each other and love for yourself.

Combine all of that with their signature sizzle and the result is a deeply satisfying romance that feeds your mind, body and soul – and you’ll simply savor every page…
4.0 out of 5 stars Love blooms and grows amidst prejudice 13 March 2017
By JB's Book Obesssion Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Leilani Kealoha is a woman who wants to escape the high expectations of her family and the prejudice she has grown up with. Losing her mother at a young age she missed having her mom around for the guidance a girl needs. She is constantly breaking the rules set by the Hawaiian men in her family determined to keep her on a pedestal. She wants fun, excitement, adventure and something bigger and greater than the life she is living. In walks an East Coast surfer that could be the answer to all her dreams. If she has the courage to let him in.

Mason Price has had enough of toeing the line for his socialite parents. He’s not the son they want and he never will be. Tired of playing the games his parents want him to play he sets out on his own quest to find himself. His journey leads him to the beautiful islands of Hawaii and the even more beautiful Leilani. A local girl with sass and grit that makes him want to put down roots. She is a challenge to him, she won’t fall at his feet and spill her secrets. She wants nothing from him like the other girls in his social circle back home looking to land a rich husband. She’s everything he can’t have but everything he wants to keep.

Mace and Lani’s story was a slow burn. Sweet and innocent their love bloomed over time. It was pure magic to read how this unlikely couple became each other’s salvation. It is not an easy road for the couple with the prejudices they face within both their families. But their love for each other prevails and they are on their way to a beautiful happily ever after. Truly a modern-day Romeo and Juliet you will love these characters. As always Kat and Stone Bastion do a wonder job making you want to know these endearing people. I definitely recommend.
4.0 out of 5 stars so amazing and romantic 8 November 2016
By Cinzia Labo' - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"Rule Breaker" is the second book in the Unbreakable series by Kat & Stone Bastion, but each book could be read as a standalone.

I didn't know about these authors and more than anything else I was intrigued by the synopsis, the setting so special and, I don't deny it, the beautiful cover of the book and knowing Mase, the protagonist is a surfer.

I've always just seen this surfer guy through movies or tv shows, because here in Italy the waves are hardly comparable with those of the ocean, but those who love surfing so much has always intrigued me a lot.

In this book the islands of Hawaii are showed under a different light, compared to the usual romance books where usually they’re an enchanting exotic background in the love stories more or less passionate. This is a completely different dimension, a particular reality, where the natives of Maui have a real intolerance, which leads to bad incidents of racism, with strangers, especially if they’re white. I would say almost a “backwards” kind of racism compared to what we are used to and the expense is primarily Mase the male lead of this story.

Mase is an American guy who has decided to live his life fully embracing his greatest passion: surfing. He travels the world, participating to competitions in this sport, and he is fortunate to be wealthy enough to be able live in freedom.

Gorgeous, rich, and free he might seem the usual stereotype of playboy “panties-melting” a little empty, an eternal Peter Pan, but he is definitely not so.

He isn’t traveling to find himself, he knows very well who he is, what he wants and especially what he left behind and what's important in his life.

Life has already given him a hard lesson and he learned his lesson.

Because of the importance of his family is accustomed to receive a lot of attention, and they’re not always welcome, but still he remains intrigued by Leilani, a beautiful Hawaiian girl, who tryes to make a deal with him, but she is nothing but accommodating or submissive.

Their story is completely outside the box and unlike anything you might expect from two young protagonists and their insta physical attraction.

The force that drives them toward each other is palpable, ever-present between them, but the intensity of the connection of their souls is even more important.

Mase knows this girl could be special for him, she’s so enigmatic and full of secrets, and he is remarkable for his will to wait without screwing up things, he wants to discover the real Leilani slowly, win her heart despite her reluctance showing her that he may be worth to face all the difficulties they might find along the way because of their racial and cultural differences.

And Leilani is a real tough girl, who knows everything about what they might expect from her people if they show themself together and she doesn’t make life easy for Mase in turn.

Needless to say I loved very much Leilani and Mase: the constant irony present in their dialogue, their back and forth, and some magic moments they share, such as the beautiful and perfect bond that unites them surfing together, when they are truly free to be themselves, by dropping all masks.

Their story is so real, with a strong sexual tension that lingers between Mase and Leilani, which, however, has been able to leave much room for the romance and the depth of their bond which grows slowly, day by day, giving itself time to know each other.

A beautiful story that deserves to be read, full of feelings and a genuine care between Mase and Leilani.
5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful and poetic, just like the islands where it's set 12 November 2016
By valeen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Rule Breaker is beautiful and poetic, just like the islands where it's set. I must confess to only knowing Hawaii from when I went to Maui for my honeymoon 13 years ago, but every word about the Hawaiian culture felt and sounded authentic. Leilani is a woman who has been raised from birth to know that she must live and breathe her Hawaiian heritage. She must act a certain way and be a certain way. And she's alright with that, sometimes. But, she wants more, she wants to experience more. She wants to travel and experience the world, not just the islands she calls home. Then she meets Mase when her brother calls on her to cash in a huge favor she owes him. He's so different than she is. He's an adventurous soul who is laid back with a charming personality and he's intrigued by this fierce, beautiful woman he sees in front of him.

Their journey is a hard one, though, set amongst racial and social tensions from her family and his. Her family is traditionally Hawaiian and a haole boy is certainly not someone they approve of for Leilani. Just as a beautiful Hawaiian woman is not one Mase's high brow, political family approve of for their son. Their love is fierce, though, enduring. I knew they could make it through all the obstacles they faced. And the way they did it is so poignant and so beautiful. I love the two of them and their relationship.

It's not often I read books that make me recall the racial tensions I experienced growing up as a Filipina adopted into a white American family in a small, backwards farming community. But, this book makes me recall it all. It was a little painful to recall while reading Rule Breaker, but it was such a beautiful story that it still left me with good feelings after reading. Kat and Stone Bastion have a fan for life in me and I am looking forward to reading so much more from them.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of the book I received from NetGalley.
5.0 out of 5 stars This heartfelt romance will own you. 14 December 2016
By Dal M - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
It’s difficult to determine at which point Kat & Stone Bastion’s Rule Breaker makes you see the world differently, but they do. And this heartfelt romance will own you.

Leilani Kaeloha grew up under her family’s beliefs, especially that she’d stay inland and commit her life to a Hawaiian. But that’s far from what she wants, which is to see the world and be free to find herself. She never would have imagined the East Coast “white man” who’s made a name for himself in the surfing world would be her answer.

Son of a senator Mason Price had everything he could possibly desire for except the one thing he actually wanted, his parent’s love. He has no desire to continue leading a life without meaning regardless of his parents’ expectations though. Set on facing fears and chasing dreams while riding the world’s waves, he comes across a gorgeous woman determined to bring him back to her island. What he truly finds is a kindred spirit. But can they overcome the racial differences that threaten their blossoming relationship?

Oh boy! I didn't just enjoy this book, I LOVED it! I feel bad for the books that followed because after reading Rule Breaker I felt as though every book should be measured against this one. Of course I won’t do that because every book and genre is different and I’m like John Lennon and give books a chance. I sure I won’t be able to do this book justice but I felt the need to try to express just how great a book this is.

Ever since I picked up my first Kat & Stone book, there’s been no doubt in my mind that I’ll continue to read whatever they produce. They not only create wonderfully alluring characters intertwined in interesting plots, their writing is simply gorgeous. Just as I finished the first lines, a friend asked what I was reading. I copied the lines I had just read and told her “something entrancing”

They have this incredibly unique style and manner of description, whether it’s a feeling or a place, that’s meant to be savored even though I practically read the book in one sitting because the story kept me hooked and flipping pages until the very end. Even the chapter titles are stimulating: Enticing Negotiations, Watched Over by Stars.

Beyond the sharp tongued and appealingly rebellious Leinani and the risk taking, charismatically cocky Mase was their challenging relationship. Mason just wanted to find and master the next big wave, but once he saw beyond Leinani’s façade he sought out to seduce and conquer her mind, body and soul. Something that was no easy task due to racial prejudice.

Rule Breaker doesn’t just involve important topics such as tolerance towards racial differences, it also encompasses environmental issues and touches on Star Wars… what? Ok so the latter has nothing to do with the two other serious matters but I’m I fan so I couldn’t leave it out.
To be able to make a better board without poisoning the environment?

I should probably tell you more about the romance between Mase and Leilani and pick quotes that depict either their sweet and tender moments, the tears-on-the-verge-of-spilling-over touching ones or their yummy sexy ones. But as I look at my review now I’m almost certain I’ve surpassed my quota. So trust me the connection these two develop is wonderful.

I loved having Cade, his sisters and Hanna make cameo appearances in a very supporting capacity as I met Mase in the No Wedding series.

There’s no two ways about it. I’m going to wax poetic about my favorite authors and Kat & Stone Bastion are most definitely on that list.

Rule Breaker is standalone, full-length new adult romance by Kat & Stone Bastion. It’s a delicious slow burn, full of deliciously sweet and sexy moments, along with lighthearted banter and . Written from both points of view with a happy ending.
