Sarah has so much depth to her character as does her leading man Leo. Both are coming from a dark place in their past but somehow becoming whole with each other. The thing that really struck me about this story was that the two never seemed to be co-dependent or needy with one another, but at the same time, there was a completeness when they were together. Sarah, and Leo, both grew and changed so much as the story progressed that it made me understand them in such a profound way. The story went in many different directions and I loved that it never got boring. It flowed beautifully and nothing ever felt forced with them - when one of them was weak, the other was strong - they seemed to fit together like two puzzle pieces perfectly matched for one another. This was one of my favorite quotes from the book:
"Nothing is perfect, because oftentimes, the flaws are the most beautiful part."
I genuinely FELT that when I read it! There are those authors that just capture you with their style of writing and the way in which the words hit you - Aly Martinez hits me right in the heart. Every. Single. Time. If you haven't read anything by her yet, you will kick yourself and wonder why you waited so long when you finally do. THIS is an author that is worth spending the time reading.
Broken Course is an exceptional book. Aly Martinez has written the story of a woman who most of us hated throughout the other books in the series. We didn't fully understand how she could ruin so many people's lives and yet still be here to tell about it. But deep down I knew she had more of a story that held all the answers we all craved to hear.
When Sarah meets Leo James, it's almost as if the stars aligned just right so that they would enter each other's lives. Both broken souls who don't know where their destiny will lead them. Leo, most recently in a witness protection program, now free to live anyway he chooses, yet so lost in not knowing how to survive without the job he was entrusted so long ago. He had his own demons to face and to conquer and he's not sure if he'll ever really be able to be happy.
Leo is still haunted by the awful incident that he bore witness to, in order to save not only his own life but that of Erica, his closest friend and strongest ally. But Erica has survived, finding love and happiness, has moved on and now it's Leo's turn.
Together with Sarah, they stumble, they fall, they hold each other up. But can it be enough to overcome the nightmares, the mind-numbing thoughts that grip their consciences and the self-doubt that plagues both of them? Do they deserve a bit of a future, whether together or apart, and the joy that seems only to be a distant dream?
I can tell you this. The journey that the reader is fortunate enough to embark upon with both Leo and Sarah is nothing short of incredible. These two characters, both so headstrong and passionate, were simply meant to be. Yes their road is filled with bumps and twists and turns but overall it's a story filled with much love and even a bit of hope. Sarah and Leo belong together. They may be the only two who can ultimately fix one another and guide each other to a world that is not always dark and not always filled with mistrust and sad thoughts.
They have a tension, a tether that is connected to each of their hearts that no matter what is thrown their way, they seem to make that connection even stronger. I won't kid you. They go through some tough times but it's the love, the passion, the tenderness that sees them through. And for the reader, these myriad of emotions only strengthen the joy that is felt when getting to the very last page.
I must add that Aly Martinez knows hot guys and Leo James is muy bueno. He speaks spanish to Sarah and it is panty-melting goodness! The sex scenes are off the chart hot and never ever are gratuitous. That is what the author does so well: she mixes a real story with fiery sex. What more could you ask for??
I loved that the entire Wrecked and Ruined crew is present with some very welcome additions that made the story that much more wonderful. These characters are truly a family whether or not by blood and the love they have for each other is present throughtout.
The epilogue made me sigh with complete joy. The author did a phenomenal job in giving us a look into the future and kept the door open for more at some later date.
This is a series I cannot recommend highly enough with Broken Course the true cherry on top! I firmly believe this is Aly Martinez's best book to date and the love I have for this book is immeasurable.
A huge 5+ stars.
Broken Course had me hooked from the first word. There was never even a second that I lost interest. Not one. The way that Aly Martinez integrated all of her previous books (including one from another series) and tied them all together is phenomenal. With every book I think to myself, “There is no way she can get better. She’s already the best.” With every book, Aly has proved me wrong.
Broken Course is a whirlwind of emotions; I went from hatred to love to sorrow to happiness. Every. Single. Chapter. I have emotional whiplash. I normally can recover from a book and be ready to go on to a new one the next day. This one does NOT follow that rule. Also, I have never known a book to have a title so perfect for the story.
Another way that Aly Martinez proved me wrong was that within Broken Course, there were so many surprises and plot twists thrown in; I never knew what was going to happen next. I have seen other authors try to accomplish this feat only to have it come back and bite them in the butt. It usually makes a story feel crazy over-the-top fake and cheesy as well as forced. It often times can and will completely destroy a book. Does it with Broken Course? No way! Each twist and turn leads the story down a new, more exciting path.
The character development throughout Broken Course is unparalleled. To see Sarah go from antihero to heroine was something I never thought would be possible. Again, another example of how Aly proved me wrong. Sarah’s growth from Changing Course and Stolen Course is inspiring. It shows that through hard work and dedication, even the most broken person can overcome adversity and come out on top. Leo is also a tortured soul, emerging from the depths of hell, which readers were first introduced to in Among the Echoes (which is the beginning of a different series). He has a harder time facing the emotional work that needs to be done because let’s face it men don’t handle emotions well. To see the character interactions and the growth of their relationships is incredible. It was fun seeing Emma and Caleb, Erica and Slate, and even Brett and Jesse make appearances in the book regardless of how large or small of a role they have.
I cannot wait to see what Aly has in store for us next! Aly Martinez: you are an evil, evil genius and I absolutely LOVE Broken Course. Okay, enough typing, I’m going in for round 2! If you read this book and enjoy it even a fraction of how much I do, you’re going to love it!
