Firstly, to read Fractured, you do need to have read the previous book in this series, Fierce, to full understand things as it picks up right where Fierce ended. Also, if you are not a fan of cliffhangers, you won’t enjoy this book.
As with the previous book, Fractured is told from both Hope’s and Hemi’s points of views and continues to develop and expand Hemi's and Hope’s characteristics and the back and forth, pushing the limits, style relationship that they have developed. Obviously, at times, their relationship makes for a frustrating read with their thoughts with the constant back and forth as you just want to bang their heads together, especially with Hemi and his frustrating strong perspectives, but there is just something about this couple that really draws you in and you know they are perfect for each other. Hope is still a strong character despite her relationship with Hemi, whilst, Hemi is still his dominant alpha male self with that caring and strong protective side that still clearly shows. As with Fierce, the importance of sub-characters’ roles was just as key to the overall story e.g. Karen and Hemi’s Koro.
The writing, as always by Rosalind James, is of a high quality, with a good flow to the book. While there is plenty to keep you intrigued, being the second book in the series, it’s more about developing the characters a little more and moving the story along to allow for the build up to the final book in the series. However, that being said, in Fractured there were some unexpected surprising twists along the way with lots of drama and lots of sensually explicit erotic scenes. The book and style of relationship won’t be to everyone’s taste, even if you enjoyed Fierce, as the relationship is developed more. I personally like it and the portrayal that even people who want to be strong can only be strong for so long before they break. As already stated, Fractured ends on a bit of a surprising cliffhanger and we will have to wait eagerly to see if they can work out things for a HEA in the final book.
Although I’m not the biggest fan of reading a series I can’t wait to read part three and hoping these two will get a HEA with all tricky issues resolved and overcome! Definitely recommend reading this series!

Second in series where even people who want to be strong can only be strong for so long before they break!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 June 2016

Such a powerful story.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 June 2016
Loved it! It fulfils every emotion, Rosalind James is so good at that! It went in twists and turns that I never could have imagined - Rosalind is good at that too! So sad at the end, but you can understand why both Hope and Hemi are like they are, these people feel very real, even if in Hemi's case he is at the extreme end of the spectrum of real. It is such a good story, I cannot wait for the final book, and I am really hoping for the happy ending for these two lovely people.
A good follow onReviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 August 2017
Hope tries to explain to Hemi that she is her own person but he doesn't listen, he expects her to do what he wants. She agrees to marry him and then Anika comes out of the woodwork. Hemi starts to understand the changes he needs to make because Hope is the one he loves.
Can't wait for the next book!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 June 2016
I have to say I loved this book. Even though it ended on a cliff hanger I really like the fact over the two books hemi is growing up even if he makes mistakes (big mistakes). Life is complicated and maturing and letting someone in takes times. I love how messy their love is, life is never neat and tidy can't to find out what happens next!
