Product Description

As a young woman, Abby Carmichael had it all—until the night a stranger tore it away…

A year and half after the brutal sexual assault, Abby is finally starting to feel like her old self. Teaching dance classes with enthusiastic kids is just the kind of job she needs—far away from probing eyes or vicious intentions of the opposite sex. When she connects with one of her students, Natalie, it isn’t long until she meets her father, Deputy Ben James.

Ben James is just a regular guy, working to make a life for himself and his daughter…

That’s what Abby tells herself when her sudden attraction for Ben catches her off guard. Abby has been steering clear of men for obvious reasons, and the idea of wanting that kind of relationship is more terrifying than intriguing. But with his doe-eyed daughter tugging at her dance uniform, Ben takes notice.

He’s ready for love, but does her past hold too many secrets?

After the assault, Abby coped by using heavy medication and fell into an ugly chain of one-night stands. But now that she’s out of rehab and finally on the right track, it’s only a matter of time before Ben finds out.

Will Abby be the true love Ben has always wanted? Or is she a tangled challenge, leading to yet another…

Broken Love?

5.0 out of 5 stars HEARTBREAKING 3 March 2016
By Catarina - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Evan Grace has written a wonderful book that will have you twisted with emotions and makes you think about what you would do.

Broken Love shows us that when you find the right person to love, that is your soul mate, that love, and patience can make you stronger and heal you.

This is what Abby found when she meet Ben. Both of them have struggles to get over and together with the help of a little girl, Bens daughter they both find love, and A life together.

Both Ben and Abby have a loving family who show love and support.

I gave this book 4 ½ stars and can't wait to see what Evan Grace will write next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Broken Love 4 Star Read 3 March 2016
By Bcastenada - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This Broken Love by Evan Grace is a standalone read. I really enjoyed reading this book it was very interesting and captivated my attention right from the start and held on tight until the very end. I think Evan Grace did an awesome job writing this book. Broken Love is a beautiful, Emotional, and touching love story about two people who have their current paths derailed and end up taking a whole different direction than they had ever planned on and I loved reading this! This is the most realistic love story I’ve read in quite a while and I find the fact that it is a situation that many couples can, and often do, find themselves in made this that much more enjoyable for me.

Broken Love is the story of Abby who had something very terrible happen to her, that made her who she was today. She dealt with it differently than others. After the breakdown then getting help that will make her better, she had made a recovery but she will never forget what happened to her. While helping her family at the dance studio she meets Natalie the little girl, who loved to dance. Then Ben comes along along with his daughter helps Abby through a time, she never thought would happen to her, which would be happiness.

I really enjoyed Abby and Ben's story. I rated this book 4 stars and would definitely recommend to readers who love the same kind of books I do.

2.0 out of 5 stars Left me wanting more story. 17 March 2016
By Jody Pardo - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I read this book as part of March Madness Challenge. I didn't know what to expect and didn't read the blurb before I started reading.

This book starts with Abby who goes through a horrific assault and suicide attempt that leaves her a shell of herself. On the road to recovery with her very loving and supporting family by her side her path crosses with Ben, one of her dance students' dad. Ben is smitten by Abby and even though he works for the police Dept he is unaware of Abby's assault or past.

I kept waiting for the story to unfold and a shoe to drop. This book had a good story and potential that never got uncovered. Some suspense was built up but then was masked by fluff and laundry list telling of day to day activities of the characters. I waited some more for the crisis to erupt. It didn't happen until 87% in and then was two pages and it was resolved.

I loved the concept and the characters but was left wanting. I also had no clue the lead male character Ben was black until nearly 60% into the book. I even scrolled back in my kindle to double check. The author brought all these characters into the mix and introduced them and I'm not quite sure why. It was very confusing. The multiple POVs beyond the two main characters Ben and Abby, I felt were unneccesary. I'm sure her parent have fruitful sex lives but it didn't add to the story. The book itself read like a travel itinerary marking the characters movement and experiences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written story 23 February 2016
By Carrie S. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Once again Evan Grace delivered another 5 star book with Broken Love. From the very beginning I loved the storyline, there were times I couldn't put it down. The characters were well put together and loved the different POVs. Ben knew how to mend a broken love. I look forward to reading more from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars 15 March 2016
By Nmmomof4 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Overall Opinion: This addressed some heavy issues, but had me rooting for the couple to get their HEA (and they did). I liked the overall family feel around both of the mcs, and I thought the H's daughter was adorable. I thought it was better than "just ok" but not quite "I liked it" -- so I'm going in the middle with 3.5 stars.

**See for my full review with spoilers**

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Abby and Ben's story. Abby is just getting back to feeling good after being raped, and she meets Ben through his daughter being in one of her dance classes. He is the first time she had felt attraction since her attack, and she is hesitant to start anything up. He pursues her, and after a little push and pull they start dating and fall in love. There are some issues with Abby's past that they have to face, but they do get their HEA ending.

POV: This mainly alternated between Abby and Ben's POV (with a couple chapters in secondary character's POV).

Overall Pace of Story: Good. The ending was a little sudden, but I never skimmed and I thought it flowed well for the most part.

Instalove: No. I felt like they had a good amount of time before the stronger feelings developed.

H rating: 4 stars. Ben. He was understanding and never pushed the h. I loved how he was with his daughter, and how he cared for the h. I liked him.

h rating: 4 stars. Abby. I loved how she was with the H's daughter. She was damaged, but understandably so. I liked her.

Sadness level: Low/moderate. Some heavy themes are addressed, but I never needed any tissues.

Heat level: Moderate. They have good chemistry, but I felt like it was more about their emotional connection than the physical one.

Descriptive sex: Yes

Safe sex: Yes. Condoms used until a std status and birth control talk happens.

OW/OM drama: Not in the typical way

Sex scene with OW or OM: No

Cheating: No

Possible Triggers: Yes

Closure: This had good closure with a few jump ahead scenes in the epilogue and a HEA ending.

How I got it: It was part of my kindle unlimited subscription.
