His touch is scorching hot and rough just like I like it. It’s just sex. I don’t believe in love, but he makes me feel things I have never felt. I want to try. I want to trust him with my secrets, but there is a good chance he will leave, he will see how broken I am. He is what I need to fix the broken pieces of my heart.
At a very young age, violence and secrets forced Brogan to escape the only life she knew. Now a young woman with a good career, she hopes to finally forget her past. She is tormented by demons in her dreams, they threaten every sexual relationship she has ever had.
Brogan meets Kyren Nolan, a sexy ex-military man. He is a yacht builder who has made his own wealth. He knows what he wants the minute he meets Brogan. He wants her and his first meeting with her lands him on the ground. He doesn’t take no for an answer. They start a passionate affair that turns into more. He teaches her that a gentle touch can create as much heat between them. They both struggle for control. But Kyren has his own scars and secrets. When their pasts collide, will they be able to overcome the broken pieces of both their lives together?
This is a great story idea. It really is. Unfortunately, I felt that it was let down by the execution.
The conversations between the characters had very little in the way of contractions. This seemed to make them stilted and unnatural.
The overall narrative style was naive and choppy. This resulted in a story which was simply too unrealistic to be wholly engrossing for me.
As an aside, I really feel that this book was let down by the editing/proofreading. There were lots of errors. Generally, I look past these in an ARC, but as a published book, I would have expected the mistakes to have been picked up. Whilst this didn’t affect my grade for the book overall, it was noticeable.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Hi my name is Kelly Moore and I am Southern girl raised in Florida. I am a registered nurse actually an ICU traveling nurse, wife, mother of two children and I have three grandchildren. I have always been an avid reader and kept journals. Until Broken Pieces, I never had the courage to attempt an erotic romance book and submit it for publishing. I tend to embrace the brokenness in all of us. It makes us who we are. I love to see people come out strong and win against past pains.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing the story…….
