This month my name is Mary. My name is different every month—Brandy, Honey, Amy…sometimes Joe doesn’t even bother to ask—but he never fails to arouse me with his body, his mouth, his touch, no matter what I’m called or where he picks me up. The sex is always amazing, always leaves me itching for more in those long weeks until I see him again.
My real name is Sadie, and once a month over lunch Joe tells me about his latest conquest. But what Joe doesn’t know is that, in my mind, I’m the star of every X-rated one-night stand he has revealed to me, or that I’m practically obsessed with our imaginary sex life. I know it’s wrong. I know my husband wouldn’t understand. But I can’t stop. Not yet.

5 “Heart Wrenching, This is a Must Read” Stars
Losing my virginity hadn’t made me a woman, but almost losing my husband had. He could have died. There are days I weep with gratitude that he didn’t. And then, there are days I wish he had.
Adam is a poet. His love for Sadie is pure and full of passion. They are young and his career as a famous poet is really taking off when tragedy strikes!
“A thousand poets could write for a thousand years,” he whispered, “and none of them would ever be able to describe how I feel about you.”
Sadie and Adam had a perfect love until fate intervened. Sometimes life isn’t fair and bad things happen to good people. Broken is a heart wrenching story about life, love, hate, hope, and desire. This is by far the best story I have read this year.
Joe is beautiful, sexy, smart and successful. His stories entertain Sadie and allow her an escape from her drab life. Because Sadie is no longer living life. She merely exists.
Joe is also a man whore. His stories are insightful, exotic and far too honest. But what happens when his stories are no longer enough and Sadie starts to not only want the real thing, but CRAVE it?!!
Just because Joe and I never touched didn’t mean we weren’t having an affair. I knew it. I didn’t want to stop it. Frankly, I couldn’t stop it. The first Friday of every month, our lunches, his stories and the relief they gave me were a bright and shining thing in the otherwise gray palette of my existence.
I dissolved on the bathroom floor, giving in to magnificent and overpowering grief. I loved my husband but wanted to fuck another man. I wanted it so much it tore me apart and knitted me together over and over.
Broken will take you on an erotic journey via Joe’s escapades. And it will take you on an emotional roller coaster as you experience every emotion possible right along with Sadie and Adam. The grief and pain, love and lust, guilt and hope!! I was in awe of this story and look forward to re-reading it again soon.
Broken is a must read!! So Read This Book!!!
For those of you that have read Dirty, Elle makes a few appearance in this book, which was wonderful treat for me. Elle is one of my favorite female characters.
