HEROINE: Brogan Milby, 26--Nurse practitioner at a plastic surgeon's office. Believes herself unlovable, unworthy, she hates affection and emotions. Sees a therapist regularly to help her deal with her tragic childhood. Doesn't do relationships and prefers to be in control sexually because of her past. She's sarcastic, a ball-buster, damaged and broken.
"This is why I am alone. I have yet to learn to control my demons."
HERO: Kyren Nolan, 32--Yacht builder. Ex-military. He's sweet, sexy and charismatic but plagued by his own demons.
PLOT: Kyren bursts into Brogan's life and breaks down the walls she's erected around herself. Kyren isn't put off by her issues but goes after what he wants. Just as Brogan begins to heal and has found peace & happiness for the first time, someone tries to destroy it.
REVIEW: An enjoyable read with lots of sexy time, a little action and suspense. Looking forward to the rest of Brogan & Kyren's story.
POV: first person, heroine
EDITING: tolerable but needs some work
WRITING: occasionally the lack of contractions leave it sounding a bit too formal/unnatural
ENDING: CLIFFHANGER - Their story will continue in the sequel, Pieced Together.
WARNINGS: h recounts childhood rape. H recounts past torture.

Kyren is a yacht builder and he worked incredibly hard to get where he is today. He is mesmerized when he sees Brogan. He knows immediately that she is someone he wants to get close to. Their meeting ends with him crumpled on the floor and Brogan running for the hills. A small town has its advantages and he finds her again in no time. Kyren and Brogan can’t deny their attraction to one another, but when they grow closer together old demons resurface. Both of them have their own hurt and guilt to work through, but will they manage to deal with it together?
Brogan sees herself as broken because of the violence in her past. I see her as a strong person who has fought her way through life. She’s tough as nails and therefore it took me a little while to warm up to her. In the beginning I didn’t understand her actions and where she was coming from. When I learned about how she became this way my heart broke for her. Brogan is surviving. She doesn't trust easily, but will do so with all her heart once someone gets past her walls.
Kyren is an ex-military alpha man who has gotten his own share of trauma. It's obvious that he cares about Brogan and he's so sweet to her. I loved that about him. He takes his time to help Brogan trust again. I liked Kyren from the beginning. He’s a wealthy self-made man who doesn’t look down on people and treats everyone with respect.
In Broken Pieces Kelly Moore writes about how Brogan and Kyren got their scars. You really get to know the characters and it's easy to connect with them. I could actually feel their pain and sorrow. Brogan and Kyren’s connection is really beautiful. There is plenty of darkness in their pasts, which left them both traumatized. Kelly Moore writes about them with a lot of respect and dignity and I liked her sensitivity. I was hooked from the very first page and read Broken Pieces in one sitting.
The conversations between the characters had very little in the way of contractions. This seemed to make them stilted and unnatural.
The overall narrative style was naive and choppy. This resulted in a story which was simply too unrealistic to be wholly engrossing for me.
As an aside, I really feel that this book was let down by the editing/proofreading. There were lots of errors. Generally, I look past these in an ARC, but as a published book, I would have expected the mistakes to have been picked up. Whilst this didn't affect my grade for the book overall, it was noticeable.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
I don't do spoilers. So you just have to trust me when I say this is a must read! Just have tissues near by.
I absolutely loved this book. Kelly Moore is amazing.
a must read book
