Author’s Website:

The year is 3048, Earth is no longer habitable, and man has fled to the stars where they’ve discovered the secret of immortality—Meridian. Unfortunately, the radioactive mineral is exorbitantly expensive and only available to a select few. A new class comprised of the super rich and immortal soon evolves. The Collective, as they’re called, rule the universe.

Two-thousand-year-old Ricardo Sanchez, vampire and rogue pilot of the space cruiser, El Cazador, can’t resist two things: gorgeous women and impossible jobs. When beautiful Skylar Rossaria approaches him to break a prisoner out of the Collective’s maximum security prison on Trakis One, Rico jumps at the chance. Being hunted by the Collective has never been so dangerous...or so fun!

I hadn't ever heard of this author before I read this book and I didn't know it was previously a novella and has since been extended into a full novel. After reading it I do wish I could read the shorter version, just because I want to see what all has been added because though the story was a great read, it seemed a little too long. I had a hard time staying interested until about halfway through the book. It just seemed like too much was being drawn out. Other than that though, I really liked this book. Plenty of action (at least in the second half), unique characters and fantastic world building! 

It starts out with Rico escaping from his latest mission and Skylar setting her mission for The Collective up. Skylar needs Rico and his crew to get her to Trakis One and Rico and his crew want the money Skylar is offering so they're stuck with each other. Rico knows from the start that something is off with Skylar but he decides to drop it because he wants her so bad and Skylar decides she kind of likes being on the ship with Rico and his crew even if she is a little afraid of Rico and his fangs. Throughout the whole Journey through space the characters managed to get into all kinds of trouble and that ending was pretty good. I don't like being left hanging but I'll just have to get the next book ASAP now.

The characters especially made this book stand out for me. Rico and his crew were very entertaining. The banter between Rico and Tannis, his ship Captain, is hilarious! I was always excited to hear what they had to say to each other next. Skylar was a great leading female character. Strong, no nonsense, and stubborn, yet lonely and vulnerable underneath. She seemed the perfect match for the sexy arrogant vampire, Rico. Oh Rico! I LOVED him! Big, bad and oozing that alpha male arrogance. He is definitely what made me love this book so much. I think Rico rates top 10 in my all time favorite male characters. Seriously, right up there with Karen Moning's JZB, Nalini Singh's Hawk and and Lora Leigh's Natches. 

Break Out has everything you want in a paranormal romance. Action, adventure, crazy characters, a fun new world and some smokin' hot sex! I really enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it. I'm really excited for the next book in this series and dying to know all about Al. :)
