I love this cover and the story contained within has stolen my heart. I smiled. I giggled. At times, I cried, cried so much I had to wipe my tears to even see the words on the kindle. I yelled. I awed. I wondered if true love could overcome it, all. "You are the fire that burns in me. No other woman can compete with that, let alone extinguish it."
A one-click must! FYI: Stock up on the Kleenex, you are gonna need them!
This is my first read by Author Allen, but it won't be my last.
William and Layla have a love that is simply undeniable. It’s magnetic, it’s passionate, and their chemistry literally leaps off of the page. Neither time nor inconvenient circumstances nor people can get in the way of the type of love these two have. I literally had my heart in my mouth the whole time I read this book.
The beginning of William and Layla’s love story is one that most are familiar with. They meet, date, fall in love, but break up and decide to be ‘friends’, which we all know doesn’t always work out well especially when the person you decide to be friends with is the love of your life. Layla thought they had bad timing, William’s job was to help convince her that when you feel as strongly about each other as they do, there’s no such thing; you make your own perfect timing.
Danielle Allen pulled me in from the very first page and did not let me get off of this ride with her until she was ready. Her words strung together like the melody of your favorite song. You read along not wanting it to end but knowing it had to.
William and Layla were both fighters, readers’ saw the peaks and valleys. There were a lot of obstacles in their way and every time I (and they) thought they were finally stable, something else would happen that took our breath away. This book was real life; real-life situations, and emotions, and mud they had to wade their way through in their quest to come out on the other side whole and happy.
By the end of the book my face was covered in tears; basking in their love, celebrating life, and hoping I get to feel at least an ounce of the love these two felt for each other. Whenever I look at my clock and happen to see 9:27, it will hold a different meaning for me now.
Now to the review. Tears, all of them, all over my keyboard. They started around 60% with a highly emotional, pivotal moment for Layla both personally and for her relationship with Will, in dealing with the big changes taking place in his life. After this point, I was weepy until I was completely finished the book. The weeping got really bad as soon as my intuition kicked in, and I felt tragedy was on the horizon. Everything was going so beautifully, and the universe always has a “funny” way of turning all of that upside down. This book evoked so many emotions—I wept because of sadness, happiness, laughter, just all of the heart-warming, cutesy, “My God, Will is such a great guy”, “Damn, Layla and Will got that real love going on”—just everything. I was also weepy because this book forced me to reflect on my own life and relationships—familial, romantic, friendships, and most importantly my relationship with myself, how I treat myself, and whether I’m truly cultivating my happiness. We often say in passing; “life is short/you never know when its your time/live your life to the fullest.” But knowing this, do we honestly really “live life” like its our last? Am I really living right now? Broken Clocks is an amazing love story, with a well-rounded, thought-provoking, fulfilling plot, will definitely be a memorable one for me; especially when I look down at my watch twice a day and see 9:27. Totally on my list of favs.
