BLOG TOUR: Breaking Through the Wall by Ashley Piscitelli


Title: Breaking Through the Wall

Series: Guarded Hearts, #2

Author: Ashley Piscitelli

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance (18+)

My Rating: School School School School


**Breaking Through The Wall is for mature audiences only—strong language, and explicit sexual content are apparent.**

Jason Smith hated the whole idea of relationships and commitment. He got what he needed from girls but that’s where it ended. At least that was how it was supposed to be. After a traumatic event he gets involved with the one girl who could force him to change his ways. Will he be able to commit to her though? Or will he drive her away before he ever has the chance to have her?

Madison and Carter finally found happiness but their lives have just been turned upside down, by someone who refuses to go away. Can their relationship survive the tragedy and pain that he has caused? What if justice doesn’t always win, and the bad guys get away?

What do you do when your whole world is turned upside down? When everything comes crumbling down around you, will you have the will to fight and break down the wall?



*Warning: If you have NOT read Playing With Fire, there might be some slight spoilers in this review*


This was a great continuation of Playing with Fire. This time though, not only do we get to see a bit of what is still going on with Maddison and Carter, but we also get to see Jason and Nicole’s story. I really liked getting to see scenes from all 4 of these awesome characters.

Though the main focus in this book is Jason and Nicole, we do get some answers about Maddison and Carter’s situation. It was frustrating at times to see what Maddison was still going through but Carter was there like always and it was nice to see a new relationship blooming. I hope that there will be more of them in future books from the series.

Jason is a jerk at first because he’s reluctant to get close to anyone but he starts to open up to Nicole and he grew on me. He actually turned into a softie a couple of times. He’s not only a muscled up hottie, but he’s very protective and a bit possessive. By the end of the book, Jason was seriously giving Carter a run for his money in the sweetness area.

The plot was really good and had a few surprises. I am so glad that I didn’t have to wait to read this after Playing With Fire because I was desperate to find out what happened to everyone. It was a great read and I am looking forward to the next book.

Author Info

My name is Ashley Piscitelli. I live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with my husband, two kids, and two dogs. On top of starting a writing career, I am a full-time student and a full-time mom. I love spending time with my kids, although I have to hide away with the computer from them when I am writing! I love being active and being outdoors.

I have always been passionate about writing. I wrote this book in about three months. I love reading romance books! I feel like being able to lose yourself in a book is one of the more exciting aspects. The books I love to read and write will be ones that make you feel for the characters. You should have an opinion on every character in a book whether you love them, hate them, or think they are up to something.

I have always thought that the most important critic is your reader, so I would love to hear from you. If you read the book and loved it or hated it, tell me. As long as it is in a constructive way, I will always answer and interact with you. I want my fans to be open & talk to me what they want for the characters in the story, and what they would like to see happen.

I hope you all enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

I can’t believe she had me sitting here watching this shit right now. I don’t know how Carter did it; movies like this were pointless to me. I mean the least they could do is have a car chase or an explosion. That way, when guys get dragged to see the movies by their girls there is at least something interesting. The only thing helping me stay awake right now, was knowing that it was almost over and that, when it was, I would be upstairs with my girl. My girl. I liked the sound of that more and more each day.

Sometimes I surprised even myself with how protective I was of Nicole. I would do anything for her; I just wanted her to be happy. This whole stupid play shit was killing me, though, because Aaron wanted her. He didn’t make it a secret either. If Nicole hadn’t made me promise to leave the asshole alone, I would have gone after him by now.

I heard Nicole start to cry and when I looked at the TV, all I saw were two old people lying in the bed. What the hell was so sad about that? I don’t care, because the credits start to roll and now comes the good stuff. I walk into the kitchen to put our plates in the sink and get a drink. When I open up the refrigerator, the first thing I see is chocolate syrup next to a bottle of whipped cream. This could be interesting.

When I walked back into the living room, it was empty. I walked up to her room and found her laying on the bed. When she looked down and saw the stuff in my hands, she smiled at me. “Just what do you have those for?”

“That is for me to know and you to enjoy.”

**Playing With Fire is for mature audiences only—strong language, and explicit sexual content are apparent.**


Madison Stevens has had a shitty life, her mother died at the age four and her father has always blamed her for it. She went through the foster system and is now attending college. Her boyfriend Chris is not willing to share Madison with anyone, not even her friends.

Her first day at college she meets Carter James, who makes her want everything she never thought she could have. She knows that she should ignore her feelings for Carter, but it’s not as easy as it sounds.

As Carter and Madison begin to fall in love, they face many obstacles. Their biggest one is Chris who is not going to let her go easily.

Playing with Fire will be the first book in a three book series. It is about the obstacles that stand in your way on the path to love. It tests the characters strength and commitment to each other on every level from old boyfriend/girlfriends, to insecurities, and throws a little violence and scheming into the mix.

“Chris was like fire. It was pretty to look at but if you got too close you got burnt, and if it wasn’t controlled it would destroy everything in its path. Doing what I was about to do with Carter was dangerous, but what can I say I never had parents to warn me not to play with fire.”
