"A month ago, my ex wanted nothing to do with me, Brady was farway, Harrison didn't exist, and Tug was just Liv's obnoxious little brother. Where is the rewind button."

She has had her heartbroken by her boyfriend Jake but to make matters worse her BFFAA’s sexy older brother, Brady leads her to see Jake’s betrayal. Tori has had a life long crush on Brady but she just can’t get past Brady’s brash outing of Jake.

I'm serious guys!!! I can't recover for what i have just read!!!!

My mouth is still hunging open!!! Help!!!


This story starts like the usual book with heartbeatings, girls having fun, parties and all the other stuff that young girls do in the age of 19-20... But it turned out much, much deeper!!!
I think it was a trip from childhood to adulthood but with a hard and difficult way...

Tori's parents move out and allowed her to stay in her best friend's house... She was recovering from an ugly break up

Things I liked:
1. It's a standalone (Can you believe authors still make those? Ha!)
2. It had funny banter
3. No running!!
4. "I'd rather" jokes..."I'd rather masturbate with a cheese grater"
5. Sweet tissue notes
6. Brady. Brady. Brady.
7. Service to others included in story (view spoiler)
8. I like that Tori's parents are still alive just in Minn-e-fuckin-sota.

Loved, Loved, Loved this story! When I read the synopsis I just knew....pull up a chair people, cause



A love triangle, possible love square...involving two brothers. Oh goodie.

Little did I know, I would get so much more then I bargained for.

This book is really awful. It is so dimwitted, any cliche for a romance novel you can think of, but somehow even more annoying.

SPOILERS BELOW>>

Liv, Tori's best friend, is the stereotypical bestie who encourages her 'BFFAA' to be more slutty and constantly calls her "bitch" affectionately (I am so sick of this character, please come up with something more original, I beg of you)

Tori comes to live with Liv's family over the summer because her parents have relocated for a job in Minnesota. Ev

Okay where to start with this review..... I have to say that after reading Irreparably Broken I was broken in more ways than one. Lord talk about a roller coaster of emotions and feelings and everything in between. I mean this story had so much of everything that the minute I started reading I was like WTF?? Then I went to OMG did he just do that? This is a summer MUST read while you are on the beach on the trolley anywhere because once you start to read it you will not be able to put it down.

I flipping loved this book. What a mix of emotions. It was very well put together to draw you in and keep you hanging at the edge.

Sometimes the events in our lives leave us with a shattered heart and irreparably broken.

Tori was trying to pick up the pieces after having her heart broken. With the help of her best friend, Liv, she decides maybe its time to move on. That is until Liv's older brother, Brady, shows up and stirs old feelings in Tori. Feelings of anger, rage, frustration, ha

What an awesome book about how secrets can tear a family apart but can also build them back up into so much more.

This book had me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what secret Brady had and why it was going to effect his family so much. I kept thinking one thing then KJ Bell would prove me wrong.....what a way to keep me captivated to these pages!

What can I say?? I loved this book. The characters were great. I loved Tori and Brady's story but what helped to make this book so good were the other characters: Liv, Tug, and even Harrison. I loved the tissues and I'm so glad it was incorporated into the end of the story. And finally probably the best part about this book as that it has an actual ending, no cliffhanger!!!

A month ago, my ex wanted nothing to do with me. Brady was far away, Harrison didn’t exist, and Tug was just Liv’s obnoxious little brother. Where is the rewind button? As much as my life was dull and monotonous back then, I preferred that to the crazy train I’m currently riding on.” ~Tori

I really did have all sorts of mixed feelings regarding this book. I loved it to begin with, it confused me after i have passed half of it, it disappointed me two thirds in, and annoyed the hell out of me by the end.

It wasn't too obviously written, and that was my main reason for finishing it. There weren't flashing neon signs saying oooooh chica, watch out, this shit's bout to happen.

The story was an alright but i have to correct the blurb, it was so not about the two brothers at all, well mayb

Let me start this review with how much I LOVED this book! What a great story of love, pain, friendship, healing and family. From the very beginning, author KJ Bell sucks you into the world of Victoria (Tori) Preston and Brady Hunter and a story so intense that at times you will be left breathless.

The story starts with Tori moving in with her BFFAA (Best Friends Forever and Always) Liv, who also happens to be Brady's younger sister. Tori's parents have moved to Minnesota and Tori decides that si

I hate when I just stare at my screen watching the little blinking cursor, screaming at me to write something, write anything! So, here I am completely at a loss of words to express how I feel about this book. This is one of those books I call my friends about and the only words that come out of my mouth is, “Just read it! It’s seriously that good.” I don’t know what took K.J Bell so long to write a novel but, it’s about time. She writes a story that sucked me right in, kept me on the edge my se ...more

I have to say I had been anxiously awaiting the release of this book and was excited when KJ contacted us with a review request. I loved this book! The first thing I have to mention is the cover, I am a cover whore and this cover is beautiful. I loved the uniqueness of the cover because the author did not put every bare-chested man on the cover like we see on most books, but this cover has a special meaning and if you have read the book you will understand. Plus, there were two swoon-worthy guys

Wow, wow, wow! I LOVED THIS BOOK! Everything about this book had me hooked; the writing style, the characters, the humor, the angst, the romance, the steamy love scenes, just to mention a few. I first heard about this book from a blog I follow on FB. I read a lot of great comments about it, so I immediately put it on my TBR. When my book club chose this book, I was looking forward to seeing if all the good reviews were true. They were! After reading it, I can’t say enough good things about it. I ...more
