When I’m broken and nothing seems to make any sense, I go back to the ranch, to my beautiful Jessie. Jess…fixes me, makes me whole again.

Those were the words written in Adam's journal shortly before he died. His twin brother, Mitch, has never met Jessie, but believes she must be some kind of woman to glue his brother back together time after time. Now it is up to Mitch to

From page one; this book had a hold on me. The story starts off with the hero Mitch reading his recently deceased identical twin brother, Adam’s journal. They were both Special Ops soldiers and on their last mission, Adam was killed saving Mitch’s life. Mitch followed Adam into the Special Ops only beca

This book would make a great Lifetime Movie, which can be a good thing and a bad thing. Seriously, it really would. We have our hero, Mitch, who just lost his twin brother, Adam, during one of their Special Ops missions. Prior to Adam's death, he was seeing Jessie. Adam and Jessie would get together in between missions. Adam pretty much uses Jessie a crutch, of sorts. He finds peace and comfort with Jessie. However, Jessie knows that each time Adam visits, it won't be for a long period

I love when I find those books that are the hidden gems... This is the epitome if that! I loved this story from start to finish. It was beautifully written, I went through every emotion possible while reading, and was completely satisfied at the end! Definitely one of my new favorites!!
This was so good, I'm so happy I stumbled on this book. A light and sweet romance with great characters and plot.
Will for sure check other books by Kimberley Reeves!
well Goodreads ate the first review, lets try this again..

I really liked this book and would go so far as to say that its my favorite so far. (of the available Kimberley Reeves books available on Kindle- I love the Vittorio books but give me a cowboy any day :) )

The story flowed so smooth and the author did a good job portraying the characters feelings. I felt so bad for Mitch (H) at first because he fell so hard and quick for the heroine and she thought he was his brother. I didnt like that h

This book was truly amazing and beautiful, it gave me great joy to read it and if all of Kimberely Reeves novels are this good and such a joy to read, I will be a contented fan, always!

When Adam was broken, he'd go to Jessie and she would fix him. Then Adam would go back to the Special Ops and continue on with his missions. On his last mission, Adam never came back, he was killed by saving his brother Mitchell.

When Mitch read Adam's journal about Jessie, he knew he had to go to her and be with

At first I was really conflicted about how I really felt about this story and the more I thought about it, the more I realized how much I truly enjoyed it. I was skeptical about everyone's role and reaction to the situation. But if I found myself in this place, I think if want the same scene too to play out.

So the story is about twin brothers, Adam and Mitch, who are in the special ops together. Adam takes every chance he can to spend time with his lover Jessie. She's in love with Adam but he a

3.5 stars. A moving story about a twin brother going to tell his brother's lover that he has died in war. Deciding that he wants to give her the satisfaction of having to be able to be with her lover one last time the twin takes on the identity of the fallen brother. He develops a strong relationship with the lover and it becomes harder and harder to tell her the truth because he knows that it will send her away from him.

Okay, so I'm now officially a 'fan' of Kimberley Reeves' writing, so maybe some people would say that I've stopped being objective with regard to her work... but I don't think that's the case. I know what I enjoy reading and it's impossible not to get excited when you come across an author who delivers what you want time and again.

I've said it before, but it bears repeating. This Author is SMOOTH. Her writing style flows and her plotlines and characters are kept fresh by unexpected twists and a
Oh my dang God, this is a fairy tale and I freaking loved it.

This author wrote a story that etched itself on my heart!

Mitch's twin brother Adam died saving his life and left him his journal chronicaling his relationship with Jessie. Jessie was Adams touchstone, she healed him with her loving whenever he was between special ops missions. Mitch feels he needs to go to her in person and break the news of Adam's death to her.

I have read this book 3 times now but I decided it’s Time I write a review so that maybe others can read it and fall in love with Jessie and Mitch. When you read the description you know what your getting, but you don’t get the feeling that are envoked throughout the story. I laughed and I had years, even after reading it and know what was goin to happen. It was raw and just a really beautiful story that I will, at some point, reread again.

I must admit I picked up Broken because I just had to see how they resolved everything in the book. Adam and Mitch are identical twins and when Adam dies in the field Mitch goes back to his girl, Jessie, pretending to be Adam to give her one last visit from him before finding out he is dead. Well of course they fall in love, but how is Mitch supposed to tell her he is not Adam? Yes indeed. How is this all going to work out? Warning spoilers ahead.

I now know why I don't read romance novels. Too much sex for my taste, and quite cheesy. But it was free, so I decided to try it. That being said, it wasn't a bad book. The story/plotline was interesting, but a bit shallow. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!

The story started out strong and passionate, but when Hank found out that Mitch was posing as "Adam", it went downhill. It became a sex-fest and then Jessie realized "Adam" was really Mitch, and it just didn't make sense to me that the reactions were a

Broken was a book that I wasn't entirely sure how the story would play on. It is about Mitch Kincaid. Him and his twin brother are special ops agents. His brother Adam has a woman who he goes home to as he says "fix him" after every mission. Adam gets killed saving Mitch on the last mission. Mitch reads his journal and decides to go home to give Jessie a few good memories to last her by pretending to be Adam. Long story short he falls in love with Jessie and doesn't want to leave.

I liked it didn't love it. I liked the fire Jessie had as the female lead but ultimately lost interest in her ever present understanding of any oddity that occurred where Adam or Mitch were concerned. I liked Mitch a lot but I think old man Hank was my favorite character in this book which is bad given that he is a peripheral character. If you prefer your heroine to be all positive never wavering faith in her man, male lead hot, totally alpha & broken in several ways and all that wrapped up ...more

I hate to say this since the book started out so strong but, DUH. Everything was too perfect and neatly packaged. I love when a book lacks too much drama, but this was so sickly sweet. Who forgives someone for lying to them about their identity for months and months? And I get how the whole pregnancy thing, and how it gave her insight to who Mitch really was, but BARF. I am sooooo bummed about how this book rapidly declined after 25% of the way through. And, like Lord of the Rings, it ended too ...more

I love the way Reeves writes she takes you into a story and keeps you there.the lead characters where well written.
the parts that i thought ok she's gonna flip now and somehow reeves wrote through the situation to show a different view. oh when he was being all macho man - i assusmed she was gonna show dude the door - but the book to a different perspective.
I really love to read any of your books.

I'm not normally one for romance novels. I tend to stick to young adult fantasy and fiction. I've always thought they were a bit over the top with the sex scenes and such. But this book didn't goninto gory details and remained on the surface of the intamacy. Yeah maybe the plot is a tad bit cheesy and it would be a great lifetime flick -kind of Legends of the Fall meets While You Were Sleeping- but it is a good book. It's a quick and easy read and definitely worth picking up.

(My previous review on this did not post!! Hopefully it sticks this time.)

I read Broken with a friend of mine, and I loved it. The southern feel, the ranch, personalities that you grow to love- the characters, and the 'secrets' revealed make this a five star read. (Not to mention the naughty scenes!) Wink-Wink. I wasn't sure how this was going to unfold, but Reeves does a great job at keeping you guessing till the end! I'll not spoil it, but this one is a keeper. ;)

I got this book while it was FREE and this is the first time I've read a book by this author. I'll be reading more of her work.

I really enjoyed the plot I understand why the author did what she did with the brother's (without giving anything away)

This book was an easy read. It flowed nicely there were never any boring parts I wanted to skip over. I enjoyed this book a lot it made me cry a little and laugh. I liked the feisty Jessie and who wouldn't love Mitch :)

I was so ready to get the book in the mail! This was the first book that I read by Kimberley Reeves, but it will not be the last. I look forward to reading more from this author!

As soon as got I was engulfed.

I never read the back of book before I read when I started I had no idea what it was about. I was rooting for Mitch the whole time and a him and Jessie kept me on edge the whole time! Love never fails!!

Thanks Kimberley for the great book!!
Well it's official, I <3 Kimberley Reeves.
This was a strange situation, this Mitch stepping in Adam's place story. And there was a few times where you just want to shake the characters and say JUST TALK TO ONE ANOTHER, but isn't that how it always goes in romance novels? While the story line was a little too far fetched, this story was just so well written, the characters so well defined, and the flow of the tale so smooth and easy to read.
Highly recommended for an afternoon read!

I have to say this has been one of the best books I've read. I was a little skeptical at first due to the nature of the story. I mean who pretends to be their dead brother. But as the story went on you realize how hard it was for the MC (Mitch) to make that choice. The story flowed smoothly and was easy to capture your attention. Something very few have a way of doing. This is one I would recommend reading.

I loved this book. I wasn't so over whelmed with the characters emotions so that's why it got four stars, but it was still really good. I felt bad for Mitch. I could not imagine losing my brother none the less a twin brother. And Jessie gets her emotions pulled this way and that. But I loved how this ended! Beautiful! Gives me hope I won't kill my husband, but only a little bit of hope!

If you are in the mood to read a romantic book, this is the book for you. A very well written story, full of good vibes. The characters were realistic and I grew to like most of them. I just wished for more drama to shake up things a bit. That said, this is a feel good story and will make you believe in true love.
