Broken Chords is a fantastic story of love and second chances. I really enjoyed how Elks pulled us into Lara's world and made us feel the intensity of everything going on around her. A definite 5-star read! I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
I'll just share a few of my favorite lines:
"You find the love of your life and lose yourself in the process"
"So I do the adult thing and stare right back. Then I stick my tongue out at him"
"Alone with my thoughts" (oh, the conversation around this line is giggly-fun)
"Sleep. It seems like the Promised Land, a nirvana I can never reach"
"Today, I plan on being a listener"
"Do you ever plan on it?" (UGH, you'll see why when you read it!)
"Things always look darker in the middle of the night"
"We blink, we breathe, and we love"
"Maybe he's going through a midlife crisis a bit early. Most guys get a sports car or a motorbike, Alex decides to become a rock star."
Carrie Elks is my queen of realistic angst. There is no over-the-top drama in her books, just realistic and sad (sometimes painful) emotions. She has a knack for taking most ordinary human problems and making beautiful bittersweet stories out of them. I admire her for that and it is main reason why I love her novels so much. She always delivers flawed realistic characters and made you love them the way they are even with their faults. Broken Chords is no exception. Characters in this novel learnt the hard way that life is never easy. But they also learnt to make the best out of it.
"Alex was like a blinding light cutting through the darkest of nights. He unravelled me, thread by thread, until the old Lara was somebody I hardly knew."
What about main characters? I really liked Lara and Alex, both for different reasons. And together, they had some superb chemistry. Whenever the two of them were bantering, my heart sped up and I found myself grinning from ear to ear. Also, this is the steamiest novel by Carrie Elks to the date.Read more ›
I thought the story was fresh and new in that as a romance it dealt with a couple who were already together - were actually married - rather than the story of two people getting together. It looked at what happens when real life events put pressure on a relationship, and how people can be potentially tempted away from those they've made a commitment to stay with.
It was realistic and gritty - but not so gritty that it didn't give the reader any romance! There was romance aplenty in this story as we were shown flashbacks to when Lara and Alex fist got together, as well as scenes in the present day which showed how much they still meant to each other. The plot kept me guessing and I wasn't sure if either of them would stick with each other.
The characters were compelling, well rounded and felt real. Alex and Lara both hurt each other emotionally in the story, which I thought was true to life and refreshing. The story kept me reading on to find out what would happen to them. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a romance with a difference - a passionate story about two people who're already together, but trying to work out what being together means to them and if they both want it.
