Broken by Kelly Elliott is an entertaining read. Ms. Elliott has delivered a well-written book. I love the characters. Whitley is abused by her boyfriend until he puts her in the hospital. Her best friend, Courtney, slips her out of town and they both relocate to Texas. Layton feels everyone has left him, his mother died when he was a teen. His father abandoned him and his brother soon after his mother's passing, his brother was killed and the next day his girlfriend walked out on him. So yes, there is an overabundance of angst in this book. Whitley and Layton's story is full of drama, action, humor and lots and lots of sex. I enjoyed reading Broken, but there is a lot of repetition in this book. Broken is book 1 of the Broken Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.
