REVIEW – BENEATH BROKEN BY C.J. PINARD
Broken, lost and Imperfect the story of what was, what will never be and what is.. Mystery, fear, loss, love, hurt, humour and sex. I loved these characters and their stories. This story takes you there. CJ makes you feel the character’s love, their joy and then she pulls it all right out from under you and sideswipes you with their fear, hurt and loss. This book puts you right in the middle of all of the character’s lives and emotional turmoil.. Takes you from low to high, beneath their broken and back out through their humour and smart whit. It isn’t all sunshine and fucking rainbows. It’s life the way people live it. This book gives you realistic views of coping and how quick life can change. If you are looking for a book with meaning, one that makes you think and feel; this book will do that for you. I can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed meeting these character’s and hearing their stories. Patiently waiting on the next Imperfect Hero.
He’s a clean-cut cop who loves a good challenge.
She’s a smart executive with no interest in falling in love.
It won’t take long for the flames of desire to scorch them both, forcing them to either douse the blaze, or succumb to the fire.
I don’t give up easily. My personality and training taught me that failure is not an option, and getting the attention of the beautiful executive president Harper Mathis is going to be my biggest challenge yet. But first I’ve got to find out why she’s so withdrawn. A woman that stunning must have secrets and I’m going to find out what’s hiding behind those baby blue eyes of hers. She’ll quickly see how much I love a good game of chase.
I’ve gone through hell and am not ashamed to admit that I’m broken. Damaged goods. Used up and empty. I want nothing to do with men or love, especially not a cop and a veteran – one who puts his life in danger every day. I’ve been there, done that, and my heart has no interest in someone like Detective Mason Oliver. Even if he’s the hottest thing I’ve laid eyes on in a very long time. I get the feeling Mason always gets what he wants, though. Well, he hasn’t seen my stubborn side.
