Nearly Broken
by Devon Ashley
Release Date: 06/04/13

Summary from Goodreads:
We’d both gone missing at one point, but Claire had one thing I didn’t. Someone to notice. So why was I the one still here and she the one still gone?

Nineteen year old Megan Smith has spent the past year working in a small town diner in the middle of nowhere. Life is quiet, simple, safe. Then comes the news that her look-a-like has gone missing.

Claire.

Still damaged both physically and mentally, Megan's not looking to be noticed. Wherever she goes from here, it's a road she needs to take alone. But when Nickolas Ellis takes the job as the new nightshift cook, it scares her how easily her defenses crumble down, down, down for him. But there are secrets she can't bear to share with just anyone, unspeakable acts that continue to haunt, and when the similarities of Claire’s abduction couples with the fear of an unwanted visitor in town, the urge to run before it all happens again intensifies, threatening the only happiness Megan's ever found.

New Adult Romantic Suspense / Realistic Fiction
Recommended for 17+ for mature and disturbing situations, language and sexual content.

Review:

I was really blown away of how much I really loved this book! I don't even know what to write since it deals with heavy serious subjects. Be completely prepared to read this because I know I was not ready. It was a very good book that I had to put it down because of all the emotion. Loved every page, but it felt that the ending was a little rushed. Devon Ashley you are an amazing author who did a great job!! 


Now on to the story. There are some disturbing scenes and dark moments. Megan Smith is working at a diner for a year. It is clear that Megan is hiding from her pas, but unlike most girls Megan has every cause because she has to stay in hiding. Until she meets the new cook Nickolas. He makes the food at the restaurant more delicious and pleasurable. Megan and Nick have a connection from the day they first meet. Nick does take things slowly as well as he looks out for her. Their relationship really does go through a test and they do strive to save it as well as a struggle. 

In this story about a girl who was kidnapped at seventeen, it did break my heart from reading this. Megan has gone through so much in her life.This book with a lot of social issues and real life about the world today. It had a good plot as well as an emotional connection with the characters trying to move on. Be sure to read this book!! 

5/5
