When twenty-four year old Bella Clay experiences yet another major loss in her life, she is forced to come home and become a young, single mother to her seven year old nephew. No one in the small town of Madison Falls knows just how damaged she is, and they certainly don’t know her dirty little secret about where she’s been for the last two years.
Grant Brady is the local hunk who works as the elementary school PE and history teacher. When he takes an interest in helping Bella start over in Madison Falls, she tries to push him away afraid that he will find out her dark secrets. What she doesn’t know is that Grant has a secret of his own.
Will love prevail or will one or both of them run for the hills out of fear?
This book is a novella, so you can enjoy it in just one day! 🙂
Buy Broken: Secrets in Madison Falls
First, I have to say this… I adore the cover. My one complaint about my Kindle (which I love dearly) is that I miss out on a lot of beautiful covers. This one is one that I think is just stunning!
Okay, now on to the book. This is a novella, as mentioned above, and I was able to plow right through it in an afternoon. The story is engaging and the characters interesting. I loved Grant so much. I was a bit worried because no one is that perfect and was kind of happy to see he had a secret of his own. I loved how much he cared for Bella despite her making it difficult at every turn. She really did hold back her emotions from him even when she claimed to have opened up. I kept waiting for her past to catch up with her and the whole charade to be over. I was so happy to get my HEA with this story because I felt these two characters really did fit well together.
The book stars off a bit strange. My advice to you is to not take that first part as what the whole book is about. I was wondering what exactly I had started reading when I opened this one up. Keep going because that first part sets the stage for Bella and her “dirty little secret”.
This was a fun read and I really did enjoy it. I would give this 3.5 stars.
