About the Author

Melly has been writing stories for as long as she can remember, but not until 2011 did she publish her works. She has written eight children’s books under the name mellyberry, and full-length novels under e.mellyberry. She used to work in a school and is very passionate about education. She loves reading all kinds of books in her spare time, as long as they’re not horror or sci-fi. Melly was born in Indonesia and grew up in a multi-language environment. When she talks to people, she could accidentally string words from different languages into one sentence. When she does that, simply reminds her to speak properly. Her ideal vacation always involves a beach; usually it’s Nusa Dua, Bali. She spent a few years in USA to complete her Master degree. It was during that time that she’d fallen madly in love with San Francisco and the Bay Area.

4.5 Emotional Stars
This story is poignant and not your typical love story, which is not for the faint of heart.

Love and Fear are interesting emotions to say the least - having a different effect on one person from the next in any situation. There is no one way, let alone right way for a human to respond to situations and circumstances presented to them. We just simply respond, or reaction, based on a number of variables.

E. Mellyberry, regardless if you agree with the actions of her main characters in this book (no spoilers given, but I will say I do not condone Andrew's behavior), has brought those two emotions together masterfully, giving them a perspective that most people would cringe or disagree with, yet can still and does occur in the world.

Aside from the joy of seeing into the mind and out the eyes of another culture, which is always a joy for me, the thought patterns, emotions, and actions taken by the main characters are very real and possible (I studied human behavior and psychology in school). Not everyone responds or reacts the same, let alone how you want or expect them to and E. presents such a story in an intricate way. I'm certain that many will be uncomfortable about this story, however, it has been well written and presented and I look forward to the next installment, which my B. A. mind is racing with questions and anticipation for Lea and Andrew.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author E. Mellyberry.)
18-year-old Lea has come to America to study at university, when she meets her brother’s friend Andrew. Andrew has secrets, a troubled past, and may have more troubles in his future.

I’m not sure how much sense this review will make, because I am really angry with the male lead in this book. Steaming angry.

Lea was a sweet girl, and put up with her mother’s moaning, and even wanted to help Andrew after everything that happened.
Andrew was obviously a bit messed up from the start of this book, but no matter how messed-up he was, it didn’t give him free reign to do what he did.

The storyline in this started out quite slowly, but then picked up in the second half. It was in this second half that the ‘incident’ from the blurb happened, and boy was I mad. I don’t want to drop any spoilers, but let’s just say that this event was not good, and definitely not recommended for people under the age of 18. The way Lea acted after this event was admirable, and I understood where she was coming from, but I just could not forgive Andrew for his part in the ‘incident’.

I don’t want to say much more because I don’t want to drop spoilers, but I would like to say that the title of this series is very appropriate. This most definitely is a broken love story, with a lot of angst, and big questions over right and wrong, as well as some dodgy ethics. Don’t go into this expecting a normal romance, expect to read something a bit uncomfortable, that you won’t easily forget.
6.5 out of 10.

When Lea arrived in San Francisco she was looking forward to exploring the freedom the move provided. Used to being under her mother's watchul eye, Lea couldn't wait to start her new life abroad. This new life came with the presence of her older brother and his cast of friends, which included Andrew. Soon Lea finds herself fighting her attraction to Andrew while being uncharacteristically drawn to him--moods and all.

Andrew rolls through life without really living it. His past is riddled with pain and disappointment which leads him to act erratically. He isn't looking to get into a relationship of any kind, but that choice was taken away the moment he set eyes on Lea. She is everything he should stay away from, but the very girl that awakens in him feelings he rather not explore.

With Lea's presence comes sweet and light moments, but try as he might Andrew can't get a handle on his emotions. It takes a drunken act where his past and the present collide for him to realize how much Lea means to him and how out of control his life truly is.

This book really did a number on me. It's been day since I've read it and I still recall the force of some of the scenes and the emotions they brought out in me. There was the curiosity about what would happen between Andrew and Lea, the enjoyment of the flirty banter and bickering between the characters, the incredulity of the tragic event that changed the course of the story and the anticipation of what would happen next for these two.

Kudos to E. Mellyberry for bringing an intriguing and unique story to the page, especially in a debut novel as touching as this one.

My review:(Tour Host Jan. 19th)

4.5 stars! Review copy provided.

Let me start by saying I almost didn't finish this book. I rarely do that and because it was a book to review I thought it would be unfair. I am so glad I did. And it had nothing to do with the writing or the story but something happened that is a bit of a hard limit for me, I had to put the book down and decide if I wanted to go through with it. Well...I couldn't leave it, I almost picked it up immediately and continued on. My heart was slamming in my chest my stomach was a bit sick but for some reason I kept going and liking it more and more and eventually loving it. The author just handled everything so well that after awhile I was still rooting for the H and h (in my sick mind). This book is so hard for me to review without spoiling.

I'm almost mad at myself for loving this book so much. I think the author did a good job of keeping things tasteful? I'm not sure that that's the best word but because of the subject it was done well. I fell in love with the heroine (Lea) in this book, I just adored her and felt for her so much, she was such a forgiving person. The hero (Andrew) was a little harder to like and then just when I thought I started to like him BAM he does something to make me hate him again. Know that he is deeply depressed and broken, he doesn't see much worth in himself and he has weird episodes where he sort of blacks out or spaces out for minutes at a time. She just wants to help and there is a definite attraction between the two but they are committed to just being friends. The H is also the best friend of the h's brother making things more complicated because Lea's brother knows how he is with women.

This is most definitely a broken love story, you will be conflicted.
