Book Synopsis

“If you’re broken, I’ll fix you…

I’m only twenty-one and already damaged goods. A slut. A failure. A disappointment to my picture-perfect family as long as I can remember. I called off my wedding to William Bailey, the only man who thought I was worth fixing. A year later and he’s marrying my sister. Unless I ask him not to…

“If you shatter, I’ll find you…”

But now there’s Asher Logan, a broken man who sees the fractures in my façade and doesn’t want to fix me at all. Asher wants me to stop hiding, to stop pretending. Asher wants to break down my walls. But that means letting him see my ugly secrets and forgiving him for his. 

With my past weighing down on me, do I want the man who holds me together or the man who gives me permission to break?

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

I seem to be getting incredibly lucky with the books I have been reading lately, they all have grabbed my attention and sucked me right into their worlds and Unbreak Me was no different. From the first few pages I couldn't set the kindle down, I had to keep reading. SO much so that I read this in one sitting.

When we first met Maggie I knew there was more to her story than we were seeing, something more than everyone around her hinted at. Maggie has been forced to make choices in her life that she is struggling to deal with on a day-to-day basis now. And it makes for a heartbreaking read. On the outside she is holding it together, she is strong and independent but on the inside she is so shattered she's barely able to hold it together. Considering the way that she has been treated for the last 6 years its understandable when she tries to keep Asher at arm's length but the woman is crazy. Asher is... breath-taking. When we met Asher for the second time I think I fell in love. He is.. *insert your own choice words here because I honestly cant sum him up in just one or two*. This man is just as broken as Maggie is, but is working to fix himself.Together they are amazing.

I love the fact that Asher holds back, that he wants to get to know Maggie better before they take their relationship further. As Maggie says she is the man in their relationship. I love the way these two come together. There is instant attraction, there's no denying that. But they don't jump into bed together straight away. They both have to grow and accept things about themselves before they can do that. There is no insta-love, instead you get something bigger.

This is the first time I have read anything by Lexi Ryan, but i know it will not be the last.
