Review ~ Broken by Love by CA Harms



Kate thought she and Carson had finally reached level ground. They had moved in together and were preparing for the arrival of their baby.

She never thought they would only be driven further apart by his withdrawn and distant behavior.

Carson had always had his freedom, and for a moment, he thought he could still live that life. 

Only Kate needs more. She can no longer pretend that what he’s willing to offer is enough. 

By the time Carson finally realizes that Kate deserves a better life than he’s been giving her, it may be too late. 

He may have finally pushed her away to the point of no return…

Book One in the Series:

Scarred by Love

Riley thought she was in love. She thought she found the perfect guy until his aggressive behavior became too much to handle and she ran.

Becoming withdrawn from the world and hiding from the chance of loving again. Having four older brothers and a determined best friend she had no choice but to stand strong.

Over time Riley was able to open up once again. She had no idea that the one person she needed was right under her nose.

She was guarded and hesitant when it came to bad boys...after all it was a bad boy that shattered her once before.

Zander wanted the girl from the party. He wanted to be near her even though she continued to push him away. He couldn’t let go of the gorgeous girl with those stormy eyes.

They both had secrets they kept hidden from one another. They found it easier to talk to others than to confide in each other. Riley begins to realize Zander isn't who she thought he was and falling for the sexy voiced Lead Singer/Guitar player may be just what she needs.

They struggle through hard times and learn to trust again. But will the love that grows be enough to hold them together or will the heartache they suffer drive a wedge between them forever.
They could be toxic to one another or they could heal the wounds that run deep within their souls.

My Thoughts:

Broken By Love was engaging. It is the second book in the Scarred By Love series. It stands alone really well and I was not confused or lost even once! I haven't read book one but I have added it to my MBR (must be read) list.

These characters were human, relateable, and likable (for the most part). They were very family oriented which I love. :-)

In this book you will find angst, hurt, heartbreak, remorse, romance, love, birth, proposal, and a great set up for the next book. Sign me up now!

I could not put it down. I both liked and disliked the way the author had a little of all of the characters actions written into this story. I liked the characters so seeing what was going on with all of them was nice buuuuut, I almost felt like the main couple of the book, Kate and Carson, got gypped to an extent because the focus strayed from them. If each of her books are written the same way then I'll be able to deal with it as I will get more of them even as I read Max's story.

If you like romance where there are ups and downs, and great characters, I highly recommend this book.

I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion. I thought it was gripping, endearing, and fantastically enjoyable.
