The son and stepdaughter of rival drug dealers, Chase Halloway and Allie Boden know the odds are stacked against them, but love doesn't care about odds.

And neither does power.

Chase Halloway knows he'll take over his father's empire when old Galt Halloway's done, but he has dreams. Plans that have nothing to do with the drug ring his father's so carefully built since Chase's mom died years ago. Untamed and unmoored, when he sees Allie for the first time he realizes maybe the future doesn't have to be so lonely...

Protected by Chase during a blow-out brawl in her stepfather's bar, Allie can't believe the tattooed, muscled man who has eyes only for her really wants her...forever. With a past marred by her mother's death and a stepfather who won't let her leave for sinister reasons she doesn't understand, she wants to choose Chase and her own fate.

Drawn together by an attraction so strong they can't find words for it, and unable to resist a physical temptation so strong they can't deny it, can Chase and Allie's love survive kidnapping, murder, false accusations and more?

The Breaking Away Series Boxed Set contained the entire romantic suspense trilogy: Finding Allie, Chasing Allie, Keeping Allie. Each is a full-length novel, and by the end of book three Chase and Allie get the happily ever after they so richly deserve. 

**Listen to the 12.5 hour audiobook, narrated by Audie award winner Tanya Eby**

Loved this series!!!! Finding Allie: I rec'd a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a very intriguing new series and it really grabs you. I was fortunate to have a "snow day" today and got to read this first book of the series. I am glad that I already have the second book since the first leave you hanging a little. There is a ton of mystery in this book along with a sweet love story. Chase and Allie are adorable together plus have the chemistry of a young couple in love. Allie's story of her life with her step-father will really pull at your heart-strings. Chase seems to be her knight in leather instead of shining armor, riding in on a motorcycle instead of a white horse. Chasing Allie: I was allowed to read a complimentary copy for an honest review. I loved book 1 and couldn't wait to read this one. Read both in one day. His one was even better than the first. Enjoyed having Allie's sister in this book. The story keeps getting more and more interesting and intriuging as it goes! And then the ending! Holy cow what a cliffhanger! Sure didn't see that coming! Keeping Allie Thanks to the author I was allowed to read a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a great conclusion to the series. There were some shockers in this book and a lot of questions answered. Twists and turns keeps you on your toes the whole time. I read the entire book in one sitting because I could not put it down. I highly recommend this series! It is a great love story with tons of mystery and intrigue. Five big stars!

I have read each book as they came out and am very excited to see it in a box set! In Finding Allie book 1: I have to say this was a great start to the Breaking Away Series By Meli Raine, also there is a Cliffhanger. I really enjoyed this first book there was everything from action to romance! I am looking forward to the 2nd part of this series.... Chasing Allie book 2: Now that Allie and Chase have found each other, it seems that there are darker events in the works. They discover why Allie's stepfather has kept her in his possession all these years and it is not good. Just when you think you have it all figured out you are wrong...very interesting turn of events here. If you read the first you will have to read number two but don't think you'll be able to stop at two...just getting interesting. Keeping Allie book 3: Allie being held captive by her kidnappers, Atlas MC, under horrific conditions, until she can be turned over to Mexican drug lord, El Brujo. Allie was losing hope and starting to think her world had been totally turned upside down. Everything she thought she knew about how Chase felt about her was challenged. Chase arranges for her to be rescued before she can be taken, but there are many twists and turns and I don't want to give away the plot. You need to read it to find out how the happy ending comes about.

First time reading this author. Received an arc in exchange for an honest review. Allie has been trying to get away from her stepfather for years, she is almost there when Chase enters the bar. It is love at first sight. But like a modern day Romeo & Juliet their families are from rival drug dealers. Can true love win out? So glad I found this author through JJ Knight, and if you love her writing you will absolutely love Meli's.

You will be hooked from the moment you start this series. Romantic, suspenseful, and full of surprises. Chase and Allie are a modern day Romeo and Juliet but you soon discover that fathers can have a lot of secrets and when they come out things get crazy. You will not be able to put these books down.

Finding Allie is beautifully raw, achingly real, and stunningly heartfelt story of two broken people who are longing for a deeper connection that will allow them to spread their wings and fly. I was completely captivated by this incredible journey, and I found that my heart is no longer my own. What a wonderfully exciting start to a promisingly brilliant journey of hope, love, and determination! Allie can't wait to escape the live that she has been forced to stay trapped in. While her sister was able to walk away and begin living her dreams, Allie is held captive into a life that she never wanted. She longs to leave her current existence in favor of running after her dreams. Just as those wishes make their way from her heart to her head, in walks a man who will turn her entire world upside down and right side up. He is everything she shouldn't want, but she knows that he is exactly what she needs and wants. Chase isn't looking for a love that breathes life into him and gives him a driving determination that he has been looking for when he walks into a bar for a refreshing drink, but that's exactly what he gets. Allie not only takes him my surprise, but shows him exactly what he has been wanting for a very long time - unconditional acceptance, untainted love, and refreshing challenge. He protects her from a fight that breaks out and in the process finds out that he wants to protect her forever. Will he lose the one ray of sunshine in his life, or will he fight for his heart and his future? Allie and Chase stole my heart, and I don’t want it back. They are from similar yet different worlds, and they are drawn to each other in a way that neither can explain nor want to fight. The more they get to know the other, they discover that they complement the other and cannot stop the intense pull to be together. Allie finds the missing piece to her heart, and Chase understands that Allie completes him in a way that he can’t explain and will not live without. Two characters that develop so exquisitely and pull at my heart like these two have are such a wonderful pleasure to read about. I can’t wait to read more of their deeply passionate and deceptively dangerous journey. Meli Raine’s debut series is simply outstanding! I love the danger, the intrigue, the passion, and the feeling of something that seems so very real. This feels more like someone’s honest life story instead of just a made up work of fiction. Within this story I have found a rare honesty and a breathless love that has gripped my heart and will not let go.

What a great read!!! Allie and Chase have a instant connection. Chase is part of a motorcycle gang and Allie is just stuck with her step dad. They both don't want to stay in town. They want to move to L.A.and live their dreams. Right now it is a modern day Romeo and Juliet story. Can't wait to start book 2 Wow, what can I say about this installment! After learning what Jeff had planned for Allie, Chase takes her to L.A. to see her sister. The time Allie was seeing the ocean for the first time was amazing. The connection between Allie and Chase gets stronger and stronger. After an amazing night with Chase, she wakes up with him gone. Spending the day with her sister and then the phone call from the police have her heading home. The cliffhanger in this installment was crazy, I didn't see it coming at all! What a way to finish. After the cliffhanger in book 2 with Chase, I wasn't ready for all the twists in this final book. Allie was beaten and bruised. She was ready to give up and lost all hope but she had a little hope in Chase. Without giving away the twists that happened, let's say you won't expect them Allie gets out alive with Chase's brother. Chase is no where to be found and hasn't contacted her. After recovering and starting to get back on her feet in L.A., Allie gets a shock of a lifetime with the news. I felt so bad Allie, after making it through everything, she doesn't get her HEA but the book wasn't over yet. Thinking Chase is gone, she goes though the motions of life until Tim (A.k.a. Chase) reappears. This book had all the twists and turns and I loved it. This is a must read!!!!

Finding Allie Until meeting Chase, Allie has one specific goal-get out of town. Chase had one specific goal too but now it includes Allie. Finding out her stepfather is up to no good, Allie continues to seek comfort and safety in Chase's arms. Will both families destroy their new love? Meli Raine captured every emotion. This is a must read! Chasing Allie OMG! Allie and Chase are incredible together. Will it last? Will Allie and her sister ever be free of Jeff? Will Chase stay true to his declaration of love? A cliffhanger worthy of the best, Meli Raine has captured my heart with this series! OUTSTANDING Keeping Allie Incredible! Meli Raine wrote about love, fear, and the truths that are sometimes hard topics to discuss. Allie and Chase are meant to be together but Chase's gang family has other ideas. Will Allie be saved? Find peace? Will Chase save her? A must read!

Loved this series! I really liked Chase and Allie. She is a very strong character who survives a horrific experience but is able to come through it a stronger person. Chase has to make tough decisions to be able to save Allie. I couldn't put these books down, I was hooked and read all three in two days. Great job Meli Raine. I was given an ARC for a fair and honest review.

Finding Allie: This is my first read by Meli Raine and I'm looking forward to reading more in this series. The characters are great with real flaws, real strengths, and real passion, the setting was good, and the story-line and discovering all the secrets will suck you in and keep you interested until the very end. Chasing Allie, the second book in the Breaking Away series is an amazing story that grabs you from the very beginning and doesn't let you go until you've read the last page and even then you are wanting more. Intense, addictive, emotional, heartbreaking, and captivating with some twists you don't see coming, Chasing Allie will keep you on the edge of your seat. Keeping Allie, the final book in the Breaking Away Trilogy is a heartbreaking, incredible story of Chase and Allie, two broken people searching for the impossible... a love that is strong enough to put the pieces of their broken hearts back together. Meli Raine has written an amazing story about love, second chances, relationships, family, and finding yourself. Keeping Allie is intense, painful and very much alive. You can't help but be pulled into this emotional story filled with drama, angst, secrets and lies. I was so overwhelmed by the emotions in this book. Meli Raine pulls you into the story and lets you experience the journey of her characters right along with them. My only problem with this book is that I stayed up all night reading it.

I was privileged to receive an ARC of this book from it's author, Meli Raine...thank you so very much for the opportunity to read it. Finding Allie is the first book in a three book series and what a great start to the series...we find Allie working in a bar with her stepfather who is way to overprotective for a stepfather! All Allie wants to do is continue to save enough money (she secretly hides in it a music box from her mother in the tampon machine) to get to LA to be with her sister... enter one day Chase a sexy, hot, handsome biker who is instantly drawn to Allie and she to him. This story has moments where you will shed a tear, chuckle, sigh and want to take a punch at someone...but most of all you want Allie's dream of getting away from her stepfather to come least I did. There are secrets that had me saying out loud oh my god he can't do that! This book does end with a cliff hanger so be pre-warned! I will not reveal any secrets because I do not want to spoil this for anyone who is going to read this series but I will say that Allie and Chase accept each other for who they are and their acceptance of each other is is their love...I look forward to reading more from Meli Raine as I do love a good MC love story with some mystery thrown in. This boxed set is all of them in one! I have had the honor of reading them all individually and enjoyed them all...take a chance on the entire series you will not be sorry that you did!
