Genre: Contemporary Romance
Seven years ago, my life changed forever. One accident and the person I saw in the mirror no longer resembled the woman I used to be. I was lost and confused inside my own body. I felt alone and disconnected from the world, carrying the incredible weight of guilt and loss that wasn't even mine to harbor.
Then fate led me to Leo James. He taught me that crazy could be perfectly normal and it shouldn't hurt to breathe. Don't get me wrong. Leo isn't perfect. He has his own cross to bear, and the truth is, that might be why I fell for him in the first place. But despite everything he does for me, learning to forgive myself is infinitely harder than overlooking the flaws of another.
Now, the secrets and lies of our past have begun to dictate our future—threatening to ruin us before we get the chance to try. Perhaps we were cursed from the start. Or maybe, just maybe, the remnants of our fractured lives will fit together to form one whole, where love isn’t questioned and being happy is…well, easy.
Can a second broken soul be enough to fill the voids of my own? Or will such scarred pasts prove too much for our love alone to overcome?
**Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone.**
My review of Broken Course!
I loved the the other two book from the Wrecked and Ruined series, but wasn’t really sure when I learned this one was about Sarah. I mean we all learned to hate her in the other two, so I had very low expectations going into this book of falling in love with the characters. I couldn't have been more wrong!!!
Ms. Martinez does a great job of putting us right there in Sarah’s head in the prologue and we can start to see what she has been thinking through the first two books. I felt a real connection to her immediately.
And the hero of the story, Leo James, who could resist that hunk of awesomeness?! He falls for Sarah the second his eyes land on her and this meeting is just the beginning of their journey together.
Both Leo and Sarah have serious troubles to contend with thru the telling of their story. They aren’t perfect and their love isn’t always perfect either, BUT the fact that they work it out with each other really makes them top my list of favorite characters ever! Leo runs his own security business while Sarah is just starting a job with the newspaper office.
Leo is able to give Sarah back a piece of herself that she hasn’t really felt since before the traffic accident. She feels comfort from him that she didn’t know if she’d ever feel again:
After too many years of not even knowing myself, I don’t feel the struggle when I’m in his arms. I know Leo...and that might just be enough. At least for tonight.
And Sarah provides the same comfort for Leo, for different reasons, though. Their story is full of ups and downs like a real relationship would have, but I wouldn’t trade anything that happened in the story. I love Ms. Martinez’ writing and wish this story would have never ended.
I give Broken Course 5 out of 5 stars!
