Book Description

Sabrina Tyler is head over heels in love with her boss and best friend, Dante Hart. She thinks that Dante has no romantic interest in her but she's wrong.

Dante doesn't believe in love or commitment or any kind. Sabrina has gotten under his skin, but Dante has no intention of acting on it.

One wild night changes their relationship forever, but Dante lacks faith in love and doesn't believe in Happily Ever Afters.

Can Sabrina break through and fix what's broken in Dante Hart?

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! September 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
In Broken Hart, Sabrina Tyler is Dante Hart's Executive Assistant. They quickly become bestfriends to the point where their families have Sunday dinners together. Sabrina is extremely attracted to Dante, but doesn't want to ruin their friendship or work relationship.

This novel is written in the relatively new and popular sub-genre called Erotic Romance. Although there are lots and lots of hot, delicious, make-you-wet sex scenes, there is also a very romantic love story. Ella Fox did a fantastic job developing her characters to the point where you can feel an emotional attachment to them. Some scenes in this novel actually made me cry. It has been a very long time since a story was good enough to make me cry. That's the sign of a good writer.

There were a few typos and grammatical inconsistencies, but these are minor and easily overlooked as you get drawn into the story and its characters. The story is written through Sabrina's point of view. The first person POV written in the present tense is often very difficult to accomplish. Although there were some tense inconsistencies, Ella still managed to keep the story flowing.

Broken Hart was Ella's debut novel. The second novel in the series will be about Damien - Dante's brother. If the first novel is any indication, I will also be staying up late at night reading Damien's story. I can't wait to read it. I think that Ella Fox will have a bright future as a writer. My rating: 4.5

I am an avid reader of romance and erotica. This book was HOT!!! This is not a book for the timid reader. When I read this book my imagination was whisked away to a very naughty place and I loved it!! Read this book if you like something steamy or if you need some good bedroom ideas!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good balance of story and steaminess September 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked this up not only because it was free but because it reminded me so much of Fifty Shades of Grey, but sounded much better.

So far, Sabrina seems to be a bit of a Mary Sue, her parents died, but they left enough money for her and her sister to pay off the mortgage of what I assume is a large house, as well as put Sabrina through school and her sister through the first two years of school.

Sabrina takes a job as an Admin Assistant for a man that is apparently very difficult to work with as he's been through seven assistants before Sabrina. But Sabrina has been working with Dante Hart for over a year and has had no problems with him. She is immediately attracted to the man an he is described as "stunningly" handsome.

I do like that Sabrina seems to be a strong woman, she' s not some whimpy Anna Steele.

Although Sabrina does have the same reaction to Dante that Anna does to Christian. She melts at the mere touch of him, and her "sex tingled and clenched". I give props to Sabrina though, she's a strong woman, and manages to keep her composure. Shows how mature she is, and has actual sexual experience.

Unlike with FSoG, they characters in Broken Hart are very likable. We're given some detail about Dante's family life, and what his childhood was like, and how the company got to be so successful. Although the details are a bit vague, it is believable.

I like that Dante and Sabrina have an actual friendship, and chemistry together. So different the FSoG. I know I'm comparing the two a lot, but thats what this felt like to me when I read the summary. Another version of Fifty Shades, but perhaps better written, and so far I am not disappointed, this is so much better then Fifty Shades.

I'm really loving Sabrina's character.

1.0 out of 5 stars Read this book ..... October 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you don't mind the following:

- A boring and predictable storyline
- Continuous name dropping of famous brand names for no real reason
- Regular cheesy one-liners (and not in a cute way)
- Random sex that just gets tedious
- The lead character feeling the best way to deal with her lover's childhood trauma is to seduce him
- A soulless lead female and a weak lead male and random sub-characters with no base to them
- Terrible editing, grammar and a mix-up of tenses mid chapter (seriously?)
- Hearing EVERY detail of her movements (and then I switched on the kettle and then I took out a cup and then I....). That alone nearly drove me mad.

Looking at all the 4- and 5-star ratings, I feel like I downloaded a completely different book.

This was just awful.

2.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't even finish the book November 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am very glad that this book was free or I would be angry I spent money on it. The writing was terrible and the sex scenes were amateur. Yes the dirty talk is nice but it was poorly done and the writing was "I said and then he said and I did and then he did" which is so boring to read. There was barely any dialogue between the characters and the weak plot just made it uninteresting. Like my title said I didnt even finish it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did I read the same book? January 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can't believe all the great reviews for this book! It was awful. The writing was awful, the characters were ridiculous, and the plot was a joke. I'm no writer, but I know the basics of "showing vs telling" and this writer tells every detail of this story in such an unoriginal and juvenile way. *Spoiler Alert* - The idea of the super hot alpha male boss and his best friend/secretary was just so silly to me. I'm all for a little fantasy but come on. I even got into 50 Shades, but couldn't get into to this at all. I gave up about three-fourths of the way through. Thank god this was a free download. Sorry to be so brutal but I rely on product reviews all the time, and this is one that seems way off.
