Review ~ Broken (Broken #1) by Skyla Madi

Broken (Broken, #1)ebook downloaded via Amazon Kindle Unlimited.

Release Date: January 25th 2015

Publisher: Self-published

Emily's life sounded more like the punch line to a joke than an actual turn of events. 

... a student nurse walks into an illegal, underground fighting club...

Emily Sheppard didn't have much to live for. As a foster child, her life was anything but glamorous and her daily commute through New York's underbelly reminded her of that. Nursing was her life, her only way to help others in need.

Then her pride took it from her. 

Jai Stone wasn't important. The train he rode around New York never let him forget that. Jai had fights to fight and a brother to save, but one random night slipped an innocent into his grasp.

Now they're trapped together.
A fighter and a nurse. 
... and it all comes down to one truth.


My Opinion

Having loved all books in the Consumed series I was eager to start Broken. I was curious to read other works by this author, but I don't think this was my type of read. Everything about it should have hooked me; it was dark, gritty, and violent--everything I love in a book. However I just couldn't engage with it. I think the main reason was lack of speech and interaction. Books that are too text heavy tend to drag for me and I did find myself skimming this. I wanted more from the characters.

Anyway, Consumed is a hard series to live up to and whilst I'll definitely read them again, I don't think I'll be buying book 2 in this series. That doesn't mean to say you won't enjoy this. This author is great, but Broken  just didn't work for me.
