Irreparably Broken by H. D' Agostino [SBM Review]

Irreparably Broken

Madison Kennedy has always seen herself as damaged goods. Her ex-boyfriend, Richard, told her on a daily basis that she was worthless. After a tumultuous three year relationship, Maddie finally decided to leave behind the bruises and hurtful words only to find herself scared and alone. Five years have passed, and it still seems like yesterday. 

Cole Walker grew up in a household where it was okay to hit. His father used him, his mother, and sister as punching bags when he didn’t get his way. Cole learned early on that life wasn’t always fair. Aside from his best friend, Wes, no one knew his deepest secrets. He thought he’d never escape the nightmare until one day he decided to fight back. 

After several chance encounters, Cole and Maddie realize they have more in common than either one could have guessed, but both are afraid that if they open up they’ll scare the other away. Can two broken individuals find peace with each other? Can love heal a cracked soul? Will Cole’s secret past ultimately drive Maddie away?

This was such a well written story. Maddy is a battered woman trying to move on. The characters reactions and fears were so very believable. I have never had an experience that the main character had, but I could understand a person in her shoes having those reactions when a new man is trying to come into her life. I was nervous and fearful for Maddy while I read the story. It all lead up to a heart pounding ending. It took my breath away. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book and find out what happens next!
