    Nachdem ich "Isn't she lovely" gelesen hatte, wollte ich die Geschichte gerne noch aus der Sicht von Michael und Olivia lesen. Ethan hat mir als Charakter nicht sooo sehr gefallen und tatsächlich fand ich den ganzen Konflikt zwischen ihm und Stephanie extrem an den Haaren herbei gezogen. Also fuhr ich fort und las schließlich "Crushed" und dann "Broken", obwohl es nicht die richtige Reihenfolge ist, aber mich interessierte Michaels Sicht erst mal mehr. Und tatsächlich habe ich "Broken" nur gelesen, weil ich Michael als Charakter noch nicht loslassen konnte.Die Geschichte ist ein bisschen "Beauty and the Beast", aber natürlich sehr handzahm. So ist Paul zwar irgendwie behindert, kann aber am Ende trotzdem wieder tipptopp joggen und auch wenn er risiege Narben im Gesicht hat, sieht er nach wie vor wie ein Hollywoodschauspieler aus. Okay. Trotzdem war die Geschichte an sich in Ordnung und man konnte beide Seiten irgendwie nachvollziehen. Von allen 3 Büchern finde ich hier die Protagonistin am interessantesten und sie ist nicht so eindimensional wie die weiblichen Personen sonst so sind in Young Adult Novels.Was dem Buch aber nicht geschadet hätte, wäre eine Art Lektor gewesen. Es gibt so viele Fehler in allen 3 Büchern, wo eine Person zB eine bestimmte Augenfarbe hat und in einer anderen Szene ist die Augenfarbe plötzlich ganz anders (und das nicht durch Lichteinfälle oder sonstige logische Erklärungen). Zwar sind es nur kleinere Fehler, aber mich hat es beim Lesen sehr gestört, weil ich mich gefragt habe ob die Autorin derart unkonzentiert war und warum es danach keinem aufgefallen ist beim Korrekturlesen.Davon mal abgesehen ist es aber ein Buch, was man durchaus empfehlen kann. Man muss das Vorgängerbuch nicht gelesen haben, um dieser Geschichte folgen zu können und von allen 3 Büchern fand ich das 1. ehrlich gesagt am schlechtesten. Es lohnt sich aber durchaus danach noch Michaels Geschichte zu lesen, die mein persönlicher Favorit der ganzen Reihe war.

    A sweet love story with a heavy - horrible - topic. I really liked the characters. Plus it is nothing you really read about in the chick lit department. It made me happy and it made me sad. Great book.

    I was impressed, more than I expected. Sexy, witty and emotional, it really kept me reading. Olivia, who is already introduced in "Isn't she lovely" turns out to be so much more than pretty and Paul is just the guy you want to read about. I really cared about the two. A fresh and modern version of the Beauty and the Beast. As any of Lauren Layne's books, well written. Hot New Adult Romance.

    Die Geschichte zwischen Olivia und Paul, wie sie sich gegenseitig versuchen zu retten, ist locker - flockig beschrieben, enthält hier und da ein paar Wendungen, ist aber prima zu lesen :)

    You know how you get to the end of a really great book, a book where you love the characters and are so invested in the story, and you are just like no!!! It can't be over! I need more time! I am not ready to say goodbye yet!! Well that was Broken for me. I was so incredibly sad when it was over because I wasn't ready to say goodbye to these characters. This was the first book by this author I have read, but it definitely will not be the last.I picked up Broken not expecting much from the story, but oh my goodness did I love it. Right from the first pages I was drawn into it. I wanted to know what was going on, but more than that I cared about both of them immediately. I loved Paul and Olivia. They are both so broken, both think so poorly of themselves at the beginning. It was wonderful seeing Paul struggle with his demons. Seeing him lash out and try to push Olivia away only to find that she doesn't scare that easily. He keeps trying and trying, doing things and saying things that are really hurtful, and yet she won't leave him. It was wonderful.Olivia has her own demons to fight. She messed up and has run away to the middle of nowhere to try and atone for her sins. Only she expects to be taking care of an old war vet, not someone close to her own age. Not someone she is attracted to and despite how mean he is someone she actually likes. More than she should. This was a beauty and the beast esque story and I loved every minute of it. It was mostly told from Olivia's point of view, but I loved the glimpses into what Paul was thinking at times. He truly thinks he is a bad person so when he lashes out he thinks that is just who he is. He feels bad about it, but what else can he do? Olivia is trying to upend his carefully crafted hermit life. She keeps pushing him to do more, to try, to hope that he could actually be normal again. This story was wonderful to read. I love that they can both give as good as they get. That they don't back down. That they are perfect for each other. Oh I never wanted it to end, but end it must. A wonderful story.This review was originally posted to Jen in Bookland
