Pretty Broken Girl: An Unconventional Love Story
Jeana E. Mann
Publication date: September 28th 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Adult
A smart, practical girl. A handsome, vengeful man. The passionate retelling of a marriage gone wrong.
Dakota Atwell did a terrible thing. She sold her soul to the devil, and the man she loved along with it. Now, by an unexpected twist of fate, he’s back in her life, he’s her boss, and he’s ready to make her pay.
When Dakota walked out of his life, she took Samuel Seaforth’s heart with her. He’s hollow inside, and she made him that way. A decade later, he’s out to break her. What he doesn’t know is that she’s already broken.
From the boardroom to the bedroom, they’re locked in a battle of wits and desire. One of them will break. One of them will pay. Both of them want to win. Neither of them expects to fall in love…again.
This is a new adult, contemporary, erotic romance. It contains adult language, adult situations, and a cliffhanger ending. It is the first book in the Pretty Broken Series.
This is a pretty frustrating book for a number of reasons, but mostly due to the lack of apparent effective communication between any of the main players in the story. That said, it was an enjoyable (although not an outstanding) read.
I found the fact that the narrative flicked between the current story and Sam & Dakota’s history worked suprisingly well and wasn’t at all jarring. The drip feed of background information kept the tension between the two, and ultimately made this a more entertaining story. I look forward to reading the next in the series to see how their relationship develops.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
