4 Wear Clean Undies Stars

Didn't your mother tell you to wear clean underwear in case you are an accident? Mine did. I keep wondering if you would not have been more interested in the EMTs saving your life than examining your panties, but hey, I've seen some of those firemen I would not mind showing my panties to. But I digress....wearing underwear is important. I think we can all agree on the need for undies.

Andi has been hurt. Badly. She walked in on her fiancé screwing someone else. With enth

Dear Jackson,

Let's. BANG.



Ok, ok... That's not my review! But seriously- if Jackson exists, I'd be SUPER excited if he'd call me into his office. I'm pantiless and ready for work....

Alright- now the review.

I loved Andi and her outlook on life, even when she was a mess. From the very beginning, Jackson is like hot liquid alpha male injected right into her veins. LOVE that. I loved the flashbacks at the end of each chapter so that we got to see Andi's descent into and climb out of depressi

Unbelievably bland and forgettable. One of those books that if it wasn't for Goodreads I'd never remember I read. (Or made 1/3 of the way through anyway.)

The sex is bland. The chemistry is minimal. The plot is predictable, what little plot there is. It's mostly just boring characters having boring sex. Most of the characters are underdeveloped and have all the emotion of soggy cardboard.

I'd be wasting my time trying to finish something I'll forget existed in a week, tops. There are better books

I hope everyone falls in love with Andi and Jackson like I did. When people ask who my favorite book boyfriend is, it's hard not to say "Jackson"! This book was exciting to write and I liked that it put a different spin on two broken people finding love. Hopefully everyone will look forward to Pepper and Olive's books coming out in March and April. Can't wait to share their stories plus continue on with how Andi and Jackson are doing!

Broken by K. Webster is the perfect combination of jaw dropping shock, gut wrenching angst, and unrestrained passion. I absolutely fell in love with these characters and was enthralled by the story line from start to finish!

Andi’s perfect bubble is popped when she catches her fiancé having sex with another woman. In an attempt to shut out and numb the pain, she constructs walls around her heart and becomes promiscuous. She refuses to let her ex’s infidelit
Okie dokie...

While I did like this book, it was kind of all over the place and a little too over dramatic for my taste.

I felt that some of the content could have been edited while a section of it reminded me of Gideon Cross and Ava Tremell's relationship from the Crossfire Series.

Reasons being...

To me, due to the trauma's that Andi and Jackson had been dealt with, they seek homage in purely sexual exchanges in order to interact with the opposite gender. In fact, 90% of how Andi and Jackson ever

I've read a few books by K. Webster, (War & Peace series - freakin' amazing), which I totally enjoyed, but this one didn't measure up to her awesome standards - aka... Nutjob Benny (Pretty Little Dolls). The beginning was amazing, but as I saw the end in sight, I just couldn't deal with it. I started skimming. And that's not good. Couldn't stomach Jackson and his all over the place nonsense. Sorry. Andie seemed to be a better fit for me. And, Pepper??. Can't wait to read her story! But, this ...more

This story invoked a lot of




The prologue was captivating, but K. Webster sped through it. The one part I was really sucked into was rushed. After that, I had a hard time not allowing my mind to wander as I read.

A lot of this book required reality suspension. Or maybe I just don't hang around people who act like this.

However, there was real promise here. The prologue set it up, but I think if Webster scaled back on some of the reactions, it may have been better. Some of it was a little too ov

K Webster writes a sexy debut novel that should be one-clicked by anyone who loves a sizzling read! It's fun, sexy and had me turning pages until the very end. I cannot wait to read the rest of this series.

I really can't fault this book. It takes you back in between the chapters to Andi's darker days and makes you feel what she is feeling and you really get

Broken is the debut novel by K.Webster and it is HOT! From the moment I started this book I did not want to put it down. The characters of Andi and Jackson are so deliriously sexy you can’t help but to root for them the whole way through! This book is full of fun, drama and super steamy!

This book is about how two people who are distancing themselves from even the remote possibility of love can change if the right person comes along!

Meet Andi

Andi is young and beautiful but her once sense of hope
I’m a little biased with this one, y’all! K Webster happens to be a friend of mine! :) But with that being said, this book is HOT! I’ll tell you that erotica is not my typical genre, but what kind of person would I be if I didn’t read my friend’s debut novel?! I’m so glad I did though, because I loved it!
These characters are so bold and it’s quite refreshing! Andi is one feisty little lady who isn’t afraid to go for what she wants, even though most people that have been through similar situation

This book gave me a migraine.

I felt like a psychic sometimes as I read this because it was so damn predictable and cliche. Andi caught her fiancee cheating, tried to kill herself with pills over it and basically became a whore to cope. She sleeps with anything with a penis. Then she meets Jackson. Literally every other scene with them is sex of some form throughout the whole book. I'm not even kidding. It's not even well written sex. It's boring and predictable. Jackson is closed off because he'

I have mixed feelings about this book. I have a hard time getting past some of the details surrounding Andi's work situation. I was not surprised when the weekend hookup turned out to be one of her new bosses but (view spoiler)

For once, a heroine who is not a white goose, it's good. Except that if Andi's reasons for sleeping with different guys every weekend are understandable, her psychiatrist should have indicate that for her level of self-esteem, it's not good!

The positive side: Andi is a modern woman who assumes her sexuality and lives well going commando. She doesn't wear panties at the office and know how to please her boss...

She acts like a man playing with her sexuality by her own rules. Again, the i

I liked this story, two people learning to trust again, loved the characters in this book so ide love to read about the others. I had lol moments, it was a fun read but I felt it finished to abruptly.
I would of liked an ending with conclusion or finality a proposal or wedding maybe it made me feel like there were pages missing.

Having come from a massive high after reading Broken - I had great expectations. So what a disappointment this one was.

too many pieces missing from the plot or maybe I turned the pages too fast (not in a good way) to try and find out why she was cheated on and why she was the way she was?. Must've missed it because I am still looking for it.

unpleasant female character and a very weak and underdeveloped story.

Exhausting Read

So this book wasn't that bad. Both H/h were complete psychos and I have whiplash from their back and forth. I mean seriously I have never read about a couple who breaks up and makes up so fast. This is an easy read and while you won't get bored, you'll just be continuously rolling your eyes.

Probably not gonna read book two.

Once you have been broken, can you ever put your life back together enough to feel whole again? That’s the question asked in Broken by K. Webster. In equal turns sad and hopeful, hot and sweet, Broken is a great start to a new series. I enjoyed the read and thought it gave a new spin on the somewhat traditional story of a young woman trying to rebuild her life after a devastating

Andi was coming down the homestretch of her college career. She was so happy; Brayden was her steady boyfriend of 4 years and he had asked her to marry him and she only had her finals to complete before both she and Brayden could find jobs in an architectural firm. She was heading home early to surprise Brayden when she herself was in for quite a surprise. There was Brayden in bed with another woman. Andi entered a very dark period in her life following this.

Pepper and Olive are such loyal and amazing friends to Andi. Especially Pepper. Pepper is so fierce and protective of Andi, yet she tells Andi like it is.

Broken is K. Webster’s first novel and I must say she hit this one out of the park. This book had me going from beginning to end. The characters touch you in a way that you are seriously distraught when the story ends because you don’t want to give them up!
