Review & giveaway: Broken by Christa Cervone

Posted March 19, 2013 by Holly in Reviews / 22 Comments

According to Webster’s Dictionary the definition of the word Broken is violently separated into parts. SHATTERED.

Yup, that pretty much sums me up. How do I handle things? I find my answers at the bottom of a bottle of Tequila and sleep with random men. 

How did I get this way? Well, four years ago I made a decision that cost me the love of my life. I can’t undo what I did to drive Garrett out of my life. I haven’t seen or heard from him in four long years. But he still haunts me in my dreams or should I call them nightmares at this point? No matter how much booze I drink and how many men I sleep with, nothing fills the void. I feel like I am existing but I’m not really living.

I’m trying to get my life back on track. Well that was until. . . . Garrett walked back into my life. His reappearance threw me into another tailspin. 
How do I put the pieces of our broken hearts back together? All before he walks out of my life again… this time for good. Or am I simply destined to just be Broken?

My Review:

*I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

Broken kept me up late so I could finish it on one sitting! 

Broken starts off with our heroine Leila just a hot ass mess, she’s still not over Garrett or the end of their relationship 4 years earlier so she copes with booze and sex and LOTS of it. She calls herself a slut but I just call her broken and self destructive. A chance meeting brings Leila and Garrett back together briefly, and it’s apparent the chemistry and feelings are still there. From that point on fate was working it’s magic in bringing these two back together which I LOVE! I love stories where the characters get a second chance to get it right. From the moment Leila and Garrett get back together again crank up your AC’s ladies because the sex between them with sex your undies on fire! For a first time writer Christa sure does know her way around the love scenes 😉 

There was not one thing I didn’t like about Broken,  I was in from page one…the characters were great and I enjoyed that all the angst between Leila and Garrett was in their past (which we experience thru flashbacks) I actually liked that there were no major bumps in their road to happiness; it was a nice change…don’t get me wrong I adore a good angsty book but sometimes I need a break and I want a great story low on the angst level.
