Four solid stars

Ugh! Why did this one have to be so short? I love emotional stories with tortured and broken heroes. It makes for good romance and steam. Very good read, but just too darn short. :(

I would love to read this now, but it's $2.99 @ Decadent and $3.99 @ Amazon, and ridiculously priced for only 39 pages, I don't care how good it is!
Diane Alberts knows how to write a short sexy storie. Broken was the perfect combination of short, sexy, heart felt and sweet. I loved it!

”His body exuded power and masculinity, leaving her quaking inside. Rational thought fled as his stare roamed over her body.”

Wow! Let me just say that again—WOW!

Broken is one steamy tale packed with such vulnerability, passion, and courage. Matt and Tiffany throw off some major “is-it-hot-in-here” sparks and chemistry right from the get-go. Readers will find themselves rooting for them from page one. Matt stole my heart with his tough as nails shell hiding all his pain and insecurity. I just wan...more
Love heals all wounds...

Matt is wounded not just physically, but emotionally. His wounds are not easy to heal. Truth be told, they may never heal; not unless he's willing to accept the new him, which of course he won't. Stubborn man!
Who can blame him? He's a top notch sniper, or he was anyway, who is now trying to get used to his new life. Add insult to injury, his so called fiancee walks out on him. So much for all her professed love.

Tiffany is a therapist, who is in need of therapy herself, p...more
Broken is about Matt, a broken man with a broken spirit, after he had lost the use of his legs in a war. His squad was worried about him and helped him arranged for a one night stand through Madame Eves. He went on with it but had his fears everything, just because he was crippled...

Tiffany was a therapist who had just gone through a bad relationship and sought the services of Madame Eve for a fling and then she met this man in the elevator that caught her attention...

Many men and women are returning from battle with scars on their bodies and souls. Matt Soloman saved the life of his partner and lost the use of his legs because of it. He has such a huge chip on his shoulder over the loss of his career, fiancé, and self-esteem. He doesn’t see himself as worthy.
Tiffany is a therapist who was also a wounded soul. She stood up against the physical and emotional abuse that her boyfriend heaped on her and came out a stronger woman for it. But like Matt, she has a...more

My Review:

I am a fan of this series. All of these books are hot little reads that you can easily read within an hour or so. This one has a particularly moving scenario in that both of these characters have self-image issues which are affecting their self confidence, although they are both incredibly good-looking people. Matt is suddenly in a wheelchair after being wounded overseas. Two shattered legs and he doesn't know if he will ever be able to walk again. Tiffany has just come out of an abusi...more

I really enjoyed this book. As always with the INS series I don't like how short they are (I know it is the whole point but I read to quickly that this book only took me 20 minutes to read!)Handsome broken soldier + beautiful broken women = a hot a steamy evening! I have to say the last line drew a chuckle! Good job to the author.

Tiffany Forsen is looking for a new experience. The last relationship was a disaster, the guy brutal. She finds Madame Eve’s One Night Stand service and finds a good looking guy to go out with. She hopes this will get her back into the dating game.
Staff Sergeant Matt Warwick came back from the war without his legs, without his friend. He was a mess and angry. His fiancé walked out on him and he was going through Madame Eve’s service to find someone to be with for a night. He didn’t count on find...more
A great short read about a marine that has returned from war a shadow of his former self. Badly wounded, traumatised and abandoned by his fiancée Matt's forced onto a blind date arranged through an agency by his team. His self confidence has been knocked but his date is determined to help him see past his current situation and help her heal from her traumas.

This story touched me, the author has captured Matt's point of view perfectly.
I have been enjoying these "1 Night Stand" stories so much. I do believe this particular story is one of my favorites. Tiffany is trying still to get over an abusive relationship that chipped away at her self esteem so she picks a hero for her 1 night stand. Feeling she would be safe with him because he is a good man. Matt, who is a Marine and who lost his ability to walk during a battle at war comes back and proceeds to lose all self respect. He thinks everybody pities him including Tiffany bec...more
I have to say I was blown out of the water by this novel! With only forty-one pages, Diane Alberts gives us not only a good look at the men who fight for our freedom and the difficulties they face, but a novel that heats up the room. Having never read any of her books in this series or her others, I'm now an addicted reader. This novel definitely gives a good run for the saying that its quality not quantity that matters. Her characters come to life with very clear voices and it leaves the reader...more

Super short read. Would have liked it to have been longer and to have gotten to know the characters a little better but...

This story had everything I love in a 1Night Stand; vulnerable characters, a hot hotel room scene, tension, and an emotional oomph. Diane Alberts left me with a twisted stomach, a lump in my throat, and tears in my eyes. I will definitely read more from her.
This was okay. Not my usual style- very quick and very little character development, but since I knew it was short, I shouldn't have been surprised. The descriptions seemed kind of forced at times.
Loved this book. It was short and sweet but had all the elements of a great romance novel!
oh this was nice..I'm a sucker for wounded heroes...both hot and sweet story excellent
