Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Mitch was shattered when his brother gave his life to save him. Reading Adam's journal brings both pain and healing, especially as Mitch reads about a woman who Adam would spend time with between missions. As Adam's twin, Mitch heads to the ranch to let this woman know that Adam was dead. Only once he sees her, Mitch can't bear to tell her the truth and instead poses as his brother to give her the love she's always wanted from Adam.

Jessie is happily surprised to see Adam after months of not hearing a word from him. Soon, she cannot believe the changes that he's undergone and finds herself falling head over heels with the new and improved Adam. Little does she know that Adam isn't Adam at all.

I admit, at first I was a little surprised that Jessie couldn't tell the difference between Adam and his twin. The scars alone should have been a big clue, but Broken drew me in and I found I no longer cared about her missing subtle cues.

I liked Jessie, loved Mitch, and really enjoyed watching them find their way. It's a sweet romance, and I loved that there was never any huge conflict forcing the couple apart. That's become a pet peeve of mine in romances. Sure, there are times when conflict has to intervene, but it doesn't always have to occur. Sometimes, just finding your way around a new romance is enough of a challenge without having obstacles thrown your way. With Jessie and Mitch, just finding their way in a new, rapidly escalating romance was all I needed to shed a few tears and find myself very happy that I took the time to read their story.

  2. I read Broken, also, and your review is right on. I enjoyed it for the relationship and it didn't need an artificial conflict because the characters were already so interesting.
