Author, Amy Daws released A Broken Us last September, but now she's re-wound the clock to go back to where it all began...
THE PREQUEL TO A BROKEN US: College love never hurt so good.
The dreaded friend-zone... The last place I ever want to be with college basketball God, Jake LaShae. I am losing my mind trying to figure out what this gorgeous and confident man wants from me. I need to break through his walls. What is it about me that makes him not go there? What am I lacking? When a mind-blowing betrayal knocks the wind out of me, and I think I can't feel any lower...Brody stumbles into my path—barefoot no less, and sexy as hell. His direct and mouth-watering swagger is a breath of fresh air. The feelings this man gives me are like nothing I've ever experienced. But Brody has a past. A past that makes it nearly impossible for him to trust me and let us become us in whatever capacity that may be. Just when Brody and I truly connect, just when I think that finding my soul-mate in college isn't a total joke, Jake comes back into my life…and messes things up…possibly for good.
This was my first book by author Amy Daws. The story grabbed my attention from the first page and I found myself not wanting to put it down. I think Amy did a great job of capturing those feelings and emotions of someone falling for a crush and all those conflicting emotions of when things don't happen the way they should. The heartbreak and anger that Finley felt was described in great detail and I felt her emotions on every page. While I liked Finley, I felt she was a little immature at times, and her emotions felt like a roller coaster. She was at that hard age where you are on the cusp of being thrown in the professional world, while still wanting to enjoy the carefree life of a college student. Brody was a like a breath of fresh air after the drama of Jake, but I felt his emotions were a little bi-polar a little a times too. Overall, I really enjoyed Amy's writing style. The story flowed well, the characters were likable, and the storyline was believable. Steamy-ness was moderate, but tasteful. Will I read A Broken Us? It's already on my Kindle ;)
*If you're new to Amy Daws...we recommend reading this new release, Becoming Us, first and, A Broken Us, second! Though they can be read in any order. :)
