Irreparably Broken by KJ Bell
Sometimes outward appearances do not always represent
That’s what twenty-year old Tori discovers when she moves in
with her best friend Liv for the summer. Liv’s older brother Brady
is everything Tori knows is wrong for her, yet he invokes feelings
deep in her soul that she’s never felt with anyone else. When
the two eventually succumb to their irrefutable feelings, Tori
realizes Brady’s not the same confident guy she’s secretly loved
for years. Tori desperately wants Brady to confide in her, but he
refuses to talk about the secrets that have drastically changed
Turning to the one person that always makes her laugh, she
begins spending time with Liv and Brady’s younger brother Tug.
While the two spend more and more time together, Tori wonders
if her feelings for Tug run deeper than the “just buddies” status
they’ve always shared. As she begins to explore her feelings,
the conflict between brothers she’d hoped to avoid erupts. She
knows she has to choose.
When Brady finally reveals his secrets, Tori makes her decision;
one that may leave them all Irreparably Broken.
Irreparably Broken is a story packed with a lot the “good stuff” I look for in a book: angst, love, banter, mystery, plenty of unknowns and twists and turns.
The highlights for me were that it was just an all-around well written book. The characters were unique, interesting and had great connections with each other. The banter between Tug and Tori was hilarious, real and clever. I looked forward to each of their interactions to see the wit fly. In most books you can see where the author is taking you and have a little foresight for what’s to come. Irreparably Broken had just enough twists to keep me guessing and wondering what the big mystery and reveal would show.
KJ Bell’s writing packed a wallop of love story. This is an intense, suspenseful, heart-warming read. Give it a try! 4.0 Stars
K J Bell grew up in California and has spent the last eight years living in
Massachusetts with her husband and three children.
After years of working in the corporate world, she took on her most
rewarding job as a full time mom.
People often ask, what made her decide to write? And the answer is…she
didn’t. Writing found her. She was inspired to write when her daughter
innocently waved at people in an empty cemetery, but didn’t know where
to begin. After years of debating, she finally put fingers to keys bringing her
first novel, a paranormal romance titled The Locket, to life.
Irreparably Broken is her first new adult novel.
Writing is a passion she simply can’t live without and looks forward to
publishing many books in the near future; including the second book to
The Locket Story, Shadowed, and another new adult novel, Cut too Deep.
