my review -
First of all, it’s just fucking. Nothing more. Secondly, you get three nights of it. Just three. Friday. Saturday. Sunday. You will love every second of it. After we’re finished on the third night, you go away. Done. It’s simple and easy. Are you game?
Guess who spoke those words – Andi or the mysterious Jackson?
Those words have left my jaws hanging for a few moments. Shock was probably an understatement. I was not really sure whether to applaud or to slap some senses into the person who said this…
Broken is a story of – yes, two broken people who met in a very unusual circumstances, started a game they can never seem to finish, as they were hooked with each other, and fell in love. It’s mostly in Andi’s voice, with Jackson’s voice inserting by the end part of the novel which made me more understand what in the world is wrong with him. He can be sweet, then suddenly he’s cold. It’s killing Andi (and me!).
Andi and him were betrayed by people they love and trusted most. They dealt with it differently, but still suffered a profound lost they never thought they would find someone they could trust with their hearts again. Good thing, Andi has Pepper and later, Olive. They’re great friends, especially Pepper who knocks some senses into her most of the time, even though she doesn’t heed most of her advices. At least she tries.
If Andi had once been hurt, and her heart broken, she’s very careful now. She begins to have some rules. And she was very keen on following it all the time, until Jackson came along. He was something different, and her game had excite him. Although he too has some issues, and baggage he keeps inside him. Andi was almost willing to change the rules of her game, but with the mixed signals he’s sending her – would it be worth it? Not to mention, an old unwanted flame suddenly came out of nowhere and was pushed back into her life. (Which makes everything cutthroat exciting!)
You are in for a short, VERY HOT, SENSUAL, STEAMY, read. I felt like its mocking me on Valentine’s Day – while Andi was getting the best sex of her life and having multiple orgasms I have no one (hehe, kidding!). Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading Andi and Jackson’s road to recovery and to each other. Jackson may have made a lot of wrong turns, but he made it to the destination. I can’t wait for the next two in the series: Pepper’s and Olive – most especially Pepper’s!!!!

the author -
By day, I run around from appointment to appointment, wearing many hats including, mom, wife, part-time graphic designer, blogger, networker, social media stalker, student, business owner, and book boyfriend hunter. (It’s actually a thing—complete with pink camo. I lurk around the internet, “researching” pictures of hot guys who fit the profile of whatever book boyfriend I’m reading or writing about)
I guess you can blame my obsession with books on my lovely grandmother, who is quite possibly my favorite person on the planet. At an early age, she took me to the half-priced bookstore each weekend and allowed me to choose a book. Every single time, she caved when I begged for two. Without her encouragement, I wouldn’t have been able to cope during some hard times without my beloved books.
Currently, I am finishing up my college degree that has taken me forever to complete. It’s just on the list of my many “bucket-list” goals that I subject myself to.
Most days, you can find me firmly planted in front of my computer. It’s my life. If the world ever loses power, I’d be one of the first to die—of boredom! But I guess as long as I have books and a light, I might just survive.
Looking forward, you can expect to see two more novels in the Breaking the Rules Series. I’m nearly finished with the third. Also, I have a standalone novel that will be released soon as well.
This writing experience has been a blast, and I’ve met some really fabulous people along the way. I hope my readers enjoy reading my stories as much as I do writing them. I look forward to connecting with you all!
