Product Description

What's really worth fighting for, when one second is all you have left?

Norman Smithson is at the end of the line. His wife left him, women don't look at him, he was made redundant, and at forty, he could be just that little bit slimmer. He would be a has-been if he'd ever been a 'was' in the first place. He's not the Alpha male of the 21st century - or of any century. He was the chubby oddball who used to sit silently at the back of the class so he wouldn't get picked on.

Rosa is a dreadlocked, tattooed and pierced twenty-something, who uses her image as armour to keep everyone away from every broken thing about her. But her past is about to catch up with her ... at the exact moment Norman finds himself in completely the wrong place, at the worst possible time.

One gunshot, one scramble for life, one unlikely couple, one very long night ... can one damaged woman and one ordinary man, find the extraordinary in the very last second they're given?

Broken Lights is a standalone story of what's really worth fighting for, when one second is all you have left.

NOTES: This is a novella at just under 40,000 words, packed with emotion and heat. Contains strong language. Written in British English.

Reviewer: Bex
Disclosure: This ebook was provided by the author in exchange for an HONEST and not necessarily positive review.

'Broken Lights' is an unconventional romance, which has a beautiful rawness and realism to it. Wonderfully written and developed, Dianna Hardy's 40k novella follows the characters Norman and Rosa and their chance meeting, a meeting which changes their lives.

What I loved especially about this read was not only its uniqueness in the genre creating a fresh and bold read, but the strength of the characters. Norman especially was a character who was easy to fall in love with. His brokenness was endearing and his road to discovery was lovely.

'Broken Lights' is a must-read standalone novella for fiction romance fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars I would definitely recommend Broken Lights and I know I will read it ... 17 December 2014

Broken Lights is such a moving story! A story of how everything can change in a split second. A story of what it is all really about! I was pulled in within the first few pages and could not put it down!

The main characters Norman and Rosa experience such strong emotions and the way Dianna writes has the reader feeling those emotions right along side them.

I couldn't help but feel heartache for both Norman and Rosa. For Norman for being so down on his luck and for Rosa for having lived such a hard life from such a young age.

From the moment their paths crossed I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next!

I would definitely recommend Broken Lights and I know I will read it again and again!

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection, as always 24 December 2014

Dianna Hardy has a gift with writing. I am so thankful that she shares that gift with her readers. I haven't come across a bad book yet. Her characters are three dimensional and compelling. Her plots are always well thought out and well written. This little green of a book is no different.
We meet poor Norman. He has the worst luck ever. He loses everything in one day, and I mean everything. For a couple of months he eeks out a meager existence until one fateful night at a bar. It all goes downhill from there.
I loved the development of both Rosa and Norman. They blossomed into this beautiful thing. I just loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing story of fear, pain, loss and redemption 16 December 2014
By A. Rice - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Just finished this story. So very rich in detail and very poignant. I'm normally a paranormal only girl, so this "norm" story isn't my usual but I'm so grateful I took the chance! Each moment I could hear and feel the cold and terror as Rosa and Norman struggle not just to survive a hellish night, but to live, at last. I couldn't put it down.

This was short and sweet but packed quite a punch. The character development is beautiful and despite the simplicity of the plot the story is captivating.

Choices, the ones we make and the ones we turn away from determine how our lives play out. This is a story of choices made and opportunities squandered. Good job.
