Editorial Reviews


''No one does romance and humor like Cora Carmack!'' --Jennifer L. Armentrout, New York Times bestselling author

''Cora Carmack's new series is my brand-new addiction!'' --Katy Evans, New York Times bestselling author

''Carmack's second in her Rusk University series is a hit. Lifelike characters make the story feel real, making it tough for readers to put this one down. A perfect story for any romantic, the exquisitely put together All Broke Down features an amazing, brave heroine and a dashing hero. You'll get chills as you read well into the night.'' --RT Reviews (4 1/2 stars)

From the Author

All Broke Down is darker and sexier than it's predecessor, All Lined Up. It had to be if I was going to do bad boy Silas justice. But let's be real... there's a thousand bad boy books out there, and the "good girl fixing a bad boy" has been done time and time again. I wanted to do my own twist on it though by having said bad boy knowingly seek out help to change. In that subtle way (and a few others), I think this book twists that trope into something fresh. And I love Dylan as a heroine. She's a feisty activist who fights for what she cares about. But she's also lost and confused and needs just as much help piecing her life together as Silas. And while this book can be light and funny like my other books, it also delves deeper into the darker side of college life. 
Did I mention it's my sexiest book to date? Because it is. And all I have to say is that the #SilasVirus is contagious. 
I hope you enjoy this sneak peek! 
I must be twisted because the more she tries to pull away, the more I want to kiss her. Maybe there's something to that whole hard-to-get thing after all.

"First question," I say. "What are you afraid of?"

"What do you mean? Like spiders? Heights?"

I smile. "No. I mean what are you afraid of with me?"

"I don't know what you're talking about."

I trail my fingers along the smooth skin of her jaw and cup her cheek. "You want me. I know you do. But every time you get too close, you run. So what about me scares you so bad?"

She exhales, and her breath fans over my mouth, teasing me.

"It's not you. Not really."

"It's not you, it's me? That's what you're going with?"

"I should have said it's not completely you. You're intimidating, definitely. But it's more that . . . I don't know what I want."

I use my other arm still around her waist to tug her body tighter against mine. "Liar. If the number of times you've looked at my mouth in the last minute is any indication, you know exactly what you want."

"I can't trust that. Myself. Have you ever woken up one day and realized that you're not who you thought you were? That you have no idea who you really are? Because I have. And it's awful. To not be able to trust your own mind. And I can't think about what I want because I'm too busy trying to find the rug that was pulled out from beneath my feet."

"Sounds to me like you're thinking too much."

"I have to think. Otherwise, how can I--"

"No, you don't, babe. I might not know much, but I know the things that matter, the things you love . . . you don't have to think about that. You just know." Like I know that I'd do whatever it takes to stay on the team. Because it's what I want . . . more than I want to party and have a good time, more than anything.

"Fact is, knowing what you want and knowing who you are . . . those are two separate things. One is complicated. The other isn't. You're trying to take something simple and make it hard, and there's enough hard things in life without you adding more for yourself."

She closes her eyes on a sigh, and her lashes are so long against her pink cheeks. She says, "I don't actually think you need me to help you. You've got a better handle on things than I do."

"Not true. You might think too much, but I don't think enough."

Her gaze meets mine again, and this time she's smiling.

"Maybe we can both learn a thing or two from each other."

"Deal," I say.


"You help me get my life back on track, help me turn things around, and I'll help you figure out what you want."

"And I suppose in your plan, us sleeping together is the first step to figuring out what I want?"

"It's an option."

"Silas . . ."

"When I look at you, I see a girl who has it all together, laced up tight likemistake isn't even a word you know. But I think you're starting to suffocate. I think that's why you got arrested Friday, why you came with me, because you needed to breathe." Her top knots by her neck in a silky bow, and I pull on one of the strings, undoing it. She doesn't stop me.

"Don't you think this will only complicate things?"

"Not if you let simple things stay simple. We don't have to sleep together, not to figure out what you want. I could just touch you. Because Jesus, Dylan, I've never cared less about my problems than when I had my fingers inside you. I think I could forget the whole world if I had my tongue there instead."
