Megan Hart is not your typical erotic romance.  Megan Hart is not just erotic romance. And if there was ever a great example of that, that is BROKEN.  This was the first book I ever read by Megan Hart and quite frankly it was my first erotic book after I got back into reading all the time about four years ago.  This book moved me and tested my limits on what I thought was right and wrong.  This book broke my heart over and over again.  I remember lying in bed at 2am crying and sobbing.

What can I say?  This is not an easy or pretty story.  It’s gritty and sad but sexy and engaging.  In a nutshell, Sadie is married to Adam whom she met and fell in love with in college.  We have a few flashbacks to their relationship but the main focus of this story is that Adam is now tragically quadriplegic after a skiing accident.  Sadie continues to live, work and take care of her husband.  Then she meets Joe and even though their relationship is platonic in a way and friendly, he’s hot and she can’t help but to be attracted.  Joe and Sadie start meeting up once a month for lunch dates and during those Joe always tells her about his sexcapades.

Their friendship and connection are well developed, the characters have so much emotion and the writing is just superb.  This book will suck you in and make you feel.  And yeah, even though it’s sad and maybe even a bit depressing, I think it’s a testament to an amazing author that can truly make me feel so deep.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
