Book Review: Breaking Möbius by T.R. Horne

Author: T.R. Horne
Genre: African American / Contemporary Women’s Fiction

Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.


Leaving behind an abusive father and emotionally scarred mother, Mali Struthers catches a bus to freedom. Atlanta University is the perfect place to discover her inner strength and special talents that lead her to a future she never imagined outside her father’s walls. Still learning to love herself, Mali must push past her own doubts to realize she deserves everything she’s worked for, even the love of a man seemingly out of reach.


 As a star football player, Justice Bradford juggles his high profile relationship and aggressive groupies but with his best friend’s constant lure of temptation, he struggles to remain focused. He has the world at his fingertips until his plans are shattered by deception. Fighting depression, he’s re-routed on a dangerous path of self-destruction until, by chance, he finds a light in the darkness that makes him second guess his vow. When Justice is faced with his new reality, will he get his life back on track before he loses it all?


 One of the hottest video models on the scene, Nicole Bunn is the epitome of a strong, focused business woman. Concentrating only on her money and the men that can supply her expensive lifestyle, Nicole runs from her own hurts scared to love anyone other than herself. Tired of waiting to marry into fortune, Nicole turns a chance meeting into a whirlwind of sex, lies and obsession that is bound to threaten her livelihood. Through a trail of lies and addiction, Nicole sees her love of money fracture so many lives, including her own. When Nicole is forced to choose between her love of money or a chance at true love, what will she decide?

Breaking Möbius combines the story of three very different people in a tale of betrayal, deceit, love and lust. The book was written really well, the plot flows nicely, and there was plenty of romance mixed with suspense and mystery. The story is told from first-person POV for all three characters, but at the start of each chapter it’s mentioned whose POV we’re in.

Mali is the first character we meet. She’s left behind an abusive father and a mother too used to the abuse to do anything about, to start her life anew at college, where she’s taking a major in dancing. She loves to dance and she’s really good about it. She becomes fast friends with her roommate, but apart from that, she doesn’t make a lot of friends. That is, until Justice, a star football player, has to take dance classes with her. They train together once a week, and Mali finds herself slowly falling for Justice – but he’s a more complicated person than she thought at first.

Justice is suffering from a break-up with his long-time girlfriend Nicole, and he’s wary of starting a new relationship with anyone. He was actually a nice guy, and I thought he had a more endaring personality than Mali had. He was sweet, always keeping his word to anyone, and he was a good friend as well.

Nicole is the third character we follow and she’s actually the most interesting character, because the mystery happens in this story arc. Nicole is a dancer in music videos, and she’s drop dead gorgeous, a fact she uses to her advantage to lure a successful DJ named Webby, into her web. When she meets a girl named Joy who provides an interesting challenge, and has a movie idea Nicole thinks might work out, she must consider what she’s willing to do and what she’s willing to give up for her dream – will it be money or real love for her?

Nicole was the most intriguing character because she was complex. She had a lot to win or lose, and her story wasn’t predictable at all. For Mali and Justice however, I quickly predicted they’d end up together. But Nicole’s story was a mystery to me, I had no idea how it was going to end.

This was a great book, with plenty of suspense, interesting characters and some very hot romance scenes.
