Title: Love Broken
Author: J.D. Hollyfield
Release Date: February 26, 2018
My name is Katie Beller, but the world, as of late, knows me as Bailey Swan, the love guru behind my bestselling book.
Want the shortened version? Here it is:
Love was stupid.
A fake. A farce
Love was broken.
Women everywhere were eating up my advice and fighting back against fake love. My book started a relationship revolution. And I stood by my story.
Until I met Charlie Bates.
When I throw all my own rules and advice out the window after a week-long rendezvous, I start to wonder just how real my words were. Maybe love might be just a little more complicated than I thought.
Maybe I’m the one who’s love broken.
My Review: I can admit that the first few pages of Love Broken had me worried. A cynical girl after my own heart touting how much love sucked…writing romance? I could have been Katie/Bailey Swan. But soon enough I was sucked right in to the story of Bailey and Charlie.
She’s an author and he’s an athlete for the NHL, and they both end up at the same hotel on the same weekend for the same event. But Charlie is…well he is pretty hot sh*t and women throw themselves at him, some of them don’t take NO for an answer. And when he makes a break for his hotel room, he ends up at the wrong room, pleading with the stranger to let him in. But Bailey isn’t so easily swayed by a pretty face. That’s the jumping off for a story that was both fun and heartfelt, hot as hell and so tense there were times I needed to stop and make a cocktail to relax.
But the key to Love Broken, for me, was the quick paced, witty back and forth between the main characters. They were somehow different but also well suited for one another and watching the push and pull was a real delight. I don’t want to give anything away but other than being written in first person, this book ticked all of my boxes!
