A Lil' Less Broken by Tara Oakes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
I really enjoyed this story! My only complaint is I'm not a fan of cliffhangers and this one caught me completely off guard.
The story is engaging and I connected with the characters right away... and stayed connected throughout the entire story. This book stayed true to the whole MC genre that I enjoy. And the sex was pretty hot!
Jay was rough and tumble and sweet and sexy and he pulled it all off very well. That was a major bonus for me.
This isn't your typical boy meets girl, they fall in love, yada, yada, yada.. it's more than that. Jay and Lil have a history. They met when they were younger, (although Jay was a bit older than Lil), and due to an unpleasant misunderstanding, Lil ran. She stayed gone for quite some time, until circumstances brought Jay back in to her life. The love between these two is evident and just made me love the characters more.
They don't just pick up where they left off, they both have to work for it, and it's worth the wait. I enjoyed Lil going back to the past in the book, telling us what lead up to certain events. Not something I normally enjoy, but when an author gets it right, as Ms. Oakes did, it can enhance the story instead of hinder it.
Overall, this was an sweet, quick, sexy, enjoyable read, and I'm looking forward to part two, due out in October 2014... which can't get here soon enough!
Solid 4 Stars!
