Book & Author Details:
Broken by L M Mountford
Publication date: 1st April 2018
Beautiful, hunted and on the run, she works a series of temp jobs under fake names and never lets anyone get too close. Until that is, she met Jake. The living definition of dark and dangerous, who tells her almost nothing about himself, keeps a SIG P226 in his bedside table, and can make her go weak-kneed with just a word.
She knows she should stay away, but the men has her caught in his web and she’s helpless to resist.
All she can do is hope her past doesn’t kill him in the process…
Oh dear. Where to start?
I’ll say right away that I thought that this was going to be a longer book. But even novella length, I would have hoped for more of a story line.
For me, the blurb had little relevance to the tale which unfolded which I felt was little more than an extended snapshot with cliched language.
I didn’t make a connection to the characters and, although I see that this is a hit with other reviewers, I’m afraid that it simply missed the mark for me.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
I’m a self-confessed Tiger fanatic called L.M. Mountford and an erotica author trying to break into dark romance, historical action, and sci-fi/ fantasy. Honestly, though, I’m interested in anything plot that involves sex and violence. They make up some of the greatest stories in my opinion. A story is like any portrait, it needs to be made up of many colours, but make sure it has these two and you’re bound to be a success.
If you can’t already tell, I’m English (Not British!).
When I was in school, I wanted to be an actor. I gave that up after a Final ‘E’ grade in GCSE Drama. That was a knock as everyone told me I was great. However, before that and now, my dream is to be a successful author. Well, I may be an author but I doubt I’ll ever be successful, so I largely write for the love and challenge of it.
I wrote my first story when I was 14/15. A fanfiction story that I posted online. I’m something of a anime aficionado you see, and like any little boy, my mind had a tendency to wander. After that, it wasn’t long before I moved into the erotica genre, after all, what is it a boy that age thinks about, and I have been in the genre ever since.
Although I’d never really thought about self-publishing, it occurred to me when I was 21 after running across the kindle section of Amazon and seeing how many short stories had been published and were selling. It was something of an eye-opener. Until then, I’d thought KDP was for novels. Shortly after, I wrote and published Sweet Temptations: The Babysitter. I’d thought that would be the hard part, but after publishing, I came to realise it was only the beginning. Not only that, but I was woefully unprepared.
These days, however, I’m locked in a running war with writer’s block.
My favorite authors are George RR Martin, Bernard Cornwell, Jack Higgins, and Sylvia Day (though not exclusively in that order).
I enjoy cooking, scuba diving and travel.
