Blurb : For Evie Rivers, eight weeks in the Hamptons is the perfect opportunity to get her dreams of being a romance writer off the ground. She’s planning to keep to herself and finish her first novel. But then she meets Adam Walker, and everything changes.
Review : “Broken” by Lisa Edward has such an innocent blurb – but the reader should be warned that the story could in fact get gut wrenching at certain points depending on the kind of reader you are.
I had this feeling throughout reading and no matter what the author was saying at that moment my gut was telling me something and he was right as it turned out.
Yet even though it was gut wrenching in a way that should mean “crying a river” – I did in fact NOT do that … which only leaves the book at 4 instead of 5 stars.
I really liked the leading characters and some extra points go to the dog a secondary character.
Also the story is pretty well developed and written until a certain point when the twist comes that I am talking about as “gut wrenching” I feel the author did not hit the note it would have needed in order to bring across the point that was meant to happen.
#Hence the for me not so gut wrenching feeling – I knew what I was supposed to feel but listening deep inside it was not happening (yeah I know cryptic much – sorry but avoiding spoilers)
Anyway I totally loved the book writing part –“Homework … to write 10 other names instead of”… (really I was laughing so hard) it felt so real and I could totally relate to the hilarious conversations between the two leading characters.
In total a really recommendable read …
