“When one man’s death exposes a complex web of lies, three couples discover the true meaning of love, loss and redemption”.
After finishing this third book, that clip finally makes sense to me.
This is one trilogy I would recommend reading in order.
All three books run parallel to each other. They all follow the same timeline, just told from different perspectives.
Each individual book, has a beginning, a middle, an end and two epilogues that complete their story. Reading them out of order, you miss so much of the story that is told in the other books.
Samantha and Blake. Both have experienced the death of a loved one, leaving them broken.
Blake has his close knit family there for him. Helping him through his grief, just being there to support him in any way they can.
Samantha, grew up in foster care, no blood family of her own. She thought she had hit the family lottery with her husbands family. They accepted her, loved her and included her. Until her husbands death exposes all that he had hidden. And suddenly her family cannot see his wrongs, but, instead, blame her for his indiscretions. Now she is back where she started. Alone, no family, no support. Fighting not only for herself but her two young daughters as well.
Until Blake checks up on her. And an unlikely friendship blossoms.
Theirs is a slow burn, friends to lovers story.
I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Samantha. She did not come across in the best light in the first book. But now having read her perspective, I have a whole new appreciation for her character. Her husbands family on the other hand was despicable.
I liked the series. Loved the characters. I loved that the author did not make Blake into a man whore after the death of his girlfriend. She did the same with Jensen (book one). It was very refreshing.
Personally I would have almost liked this story told in one book, with multiple points of view. You lose so much of the emotion by not having it all together. I was in tears reading Hailey’s story (book one). By the time you get to this, the third book, reading the same scenes three times, you lose the emotional parts of the stories.
Unlike most other reviewers, I found Samantha heartbreaking in the first two novels of this series. For as bad as things were for Hailey, they were a thousand times worse for Sam. I was so happy to find out we were getting her story and it was with someone as wonderful as Blake. Sam continually impressed me with her refusal to let all the things crashing down crush her under their weight. She let herself take a beat to feel the pain, then collected her bearings and showed her girls that she was stronger and better than anything thrown at her.
Blake was the perfect counterpoint to Samantha. He was equally broken but hadn’t quite let himself learn to feel again, whereas Samantha knew she needed to work through all that pain to come out the other side. He was such a pillar of strength for her in her weakest moments and in doing that he allowed himself the vulnerability he needed to open his heart again. It was quite lovely to see him begin to shed the shroud he’d wrapped himself in when his first love died.
Broken Love Story was more of a slow burn than the first two books in this series. The pacing was perfect though, any faster and it would have felt forced. They both needed the time they put in getting to know one another and begin to overcome all the trauma they’d faced. I’m a huge sucker for getting to witness a character’s healing arc, and this book delivered big time in that aspect. Sam and Blake picked up both their own and each other’s pieces and fit them together to form a connection that was far deeper and stronger than anything they’d experienced before.
I do have some wishes for Broken Love Story. There were a few places where the dialogue was just bizarre, I think Ms. Madison was going for sweeping statements of love, but they were so out of character they came off stilted and disjointed. I also had a few moments in the flashbacks where the writing felt forced and awkward like there was a split between making them an aside to the reader and just the character reliving the memories.
Broken Love Story is the third book in Natasha Madison’s Love series. These books are interconnected standalones and do not need to be read in order. They share a timeline, and the scenes involving characters from more than one book appear in each book, for the most part. Broken Love Story is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Samantha and Blake.
Samantha was such a strong character. Being hit with one blow after the other she managed to stay strong for her girls. Being a mother I could relate on so many levels. I love Blake and his kind heart.
I loved him even more that he wanted to help Samantha to start living again. I loved the girls. My heart was breaking in half when Lizzy asked Hailey not to hate them so Blake won't hate them…
You could see with every text and phone call between them, that they were falling for each other and didn't even see it. But when they finally did?!Queue the swoon: »That was« she says softly »perfect.««Your lips," I tell her, "were made for me to kiss.«
I love this series – every character that I read intrigued me and made me fall head over heels in love. Out of all three stories this is my favorite. These story will be a re-read for me most definitely!
