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.
