I had the perfect life; a husband who loved me, and two kids who were my world.
Until someone else answered his phone and my perfect life shattered.
When he died, I was left with answers he couldn’t give me and a box full of lies.
He left me broken.
I fell in love when I was fifteen, knowing she was the one.
For five years, she was my everything—my every breath, every heartbeat, every thought.
She made me promise to move on, promise to find love again, but I broke those promises because I can’t move on.
Two broken souls brought together by tragedy and heartbreak.
Can a broken love story be fixed?

This freaking series. I can’t even begin to try to explain fully how deep my love for these books is. Every single one has gutted me then filled my heart with more love than I could ever imagine and just when I thought Natasha Madison had given it her all with the first two books she hits me with this one. As one of my favorite go to authors I’ve made what I call my reading a Natasha Madison book survival kit. It consists of drinks (yes, big girl grown up ones. I am a lady after all.) tissues, chocolate, and my most comfortable leggings and a hoodie because my butt ain’t leaving where I’ve planted it until I’ve read every page.
Broken Love Story sailed to the top of my all time favorites almost immediately. This entire series, centered around one man’s lie, itself is something incredibly unique but the stories that come from the chain of events started by that lie are breathtakingly amazing with Broken Love Story being insanely beautiful. I’ll give you a brief example of me while reading this to demonstrate the ugly cry level before I go on explaining how incredible this book is.
Me *starts book* “Ok, I can do this. She’s not going to get me this time. I’m ready. I’ve prepared. I’ve read every book I’m not going to sob”
Me *half way point* “Ok, ok, she got me a few times, but only one tissue. I’m good.”
Me *a bit further* “OMG! I CAN’T SEE! THE TEARS! EWWWW IS THAT SNOT?! WHERE DID THE TISSUES GO!? IT’S JUST SO BEAUTIFUL! MY HEART! OH GOD SOMEONE HOLD ME!”
Me*Epilogue* “Would it be weird to ask Natasha Madison to be my best friend forever and ever even though I’m a total stranger? Is that creepy?”
Needless to say, this book is everything. And my husband confirmed my thoughts are creepy and he’s wondering about my sanity. Eh, ya win some, ya lose some.
A true emotional journey from start to finish. Grief, anger, sadness, healing, soul deep love, forgiveness, overcoming, all these emotions and more are center stage in this epic love story that grips your heart. Truth be told, I didn’t know if I would even LIKE Samantha let alone love her as much as I do. The strength this woman posses to not only survive, but ultimately thrive after what her and her children are put through is awe inspiring. An amazing mother and a truly kind and beautiful woman I found myself loving who at the start of this series I looked at as, if not the enemy, more someone who I couldn’t like. But getting her side of all that has happened she was hit harder than anyone else by what happened.
Blake is someone I’ve liked from the start. A wonderful brother, protective and loyal, I always knew he was a good man. But now I know he’s more than merely a good man, he’s the kind of man every woman deserves in their life. His selfless and caring ways with Samantha are something I truly don’t know how to begin to explain. You just have to read it and be as blown away as I am by all the perfection that is Blake.
I honestly don’t know what to do with myself now that I’ve finished this book. How do I do life now? Probably starting this series from the beginning again so I can just keep living in the magic that Natasha has created that’s how.
READ THIS. DO IT NOW.
You’re welcome for the advice.
When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…
