Kate thought she and Carson had finally reached level ground. They had moved in together and were preparing for the arrival of their baby.

She never thought they would only be driven further apart by his withdrawn and distant behavior.

Carson had always had his freedom, and for a moment, he thought he could still live that life.

Only Kate needs more. She can no longer preten

This book starts with pregnant Kate leaving the home she shares with her boyfriend Carson after months of being treated poorly and him going out at night and not coming home until the next day. Kate was a tough chick at first- being kind to Carson and allowing him access to the baby after she is born, but letting him know the way he treated her was not ok. Carson worked hard to redeem himself, he became a cop and called and texted Kate often. He cooked meals for her and fixed up the nursery in t ...more

Cyndi wrote an excellent review.
I just wanna add that this hero in comparison to his brothers wasn't a bad one. And the heroine was the one with a backbone, but hormones won...
And I think he was celibate during separation, but it was kinda open, just my naive assumption :-)))

"If you were in a relationship that at the end of the day left you feeling exhausted and defeated, then what was the point?"

Neglected, ignored, and hurt were the emotions that a 7-month pregnant Kate was feeling. We met her as Riley's best friend in Scarred by Love and girlfriend of Riley's brother, Carson. Now in Broken by Love, Kate and Carson are having a baby on the way and Carson is apparently too over

Broken Love by C.A. Harms is book 2 in the Scarred by Love Series. This story is about Kate and Carson. We met the couple back in the first one, so I was really excited to read their story. C.A. Harms did not disappoint in this one. The prologue was intense, full of heart ache and angst. I was completely pulled in.

Kate and Carson are both in a different place, they have moved in together and are expecting a child. Everything should be great with the couple right? W

This is the second book in the Scarred By Love series, so Kate and Carson are in no way new characters. Kate is best friends with Carson's sister, so they have been around each other most of their lives. When their relationship turned intimate, we all wondered how it would turn out. Well, this book leaves no stone un-turned.

At the end of the last book, we find out that Kate is pregnant with Carson's baby and they are moving in together. While neither one was expecting this turn of events, they

Gahhhhh, OMG, this book was AHH-Mazing!!! From page one I was hooked and could NOT put it down!! I loved Riley and Zander from Scarred by Love, I knew CA Harms would have to do a lot to make me love Kate and Carson just as much and she def did not disappoint!!!

Kate is fed up!! At 7 months pregnant she is tired of being alone. She is tired of fighting for a relationship that seems to be going nowhere! Carson stays gone all the time and half the time he never even comes home so she finally packs
There is nothing better than a story that is straight to the point.

I loved Broken by Love for so many reasons.

1. It was great to see Kate finally wake up and not allow Carson to treat her the way he was - even while pregnant with his child.

2. That Carson FINALLY did wake up and started to realize that he mistreated Kate in so many ways.

Whatever happened between them made him realize that he needed to get his s**t together and make things right for both Kate and his child.

This was a good story! You start off with a bang-Kate leaving Carson (when she is like 8 months pregnant to boot!). The 1st 1/2 of the book revolves around the will they/won't they get back together trope. At about 50% in, you find the answer to this and I was kind of concerned about where the book would go from there. Thankfully, nothing bad happens to our MC's which I was glad for, but the rest of the book seemed to focus on everyone else so it was a bit disjointed. I like the other characters ...more

Ok did he hook up with someone all the nights he didn’t come home? Why didn’t she even care enough to ask? Hero went to strip club with brothers and hero from previous book. He thinks to himself that 6 months ago it would have been a dreamland. What your fixing to marry a woman who six months ago was pregnant with your child and then you would have loved a strip club. Whatever, the first book was ok ( hero from that book got a couple of lap dances in this book, he was said to loo

HOLY SMOKES!!!! So I recently finished book 1 in this series, "Scarred by Love," and loved it. I was nervous about reading a new author but C. A. Harms did not disappoint. When I heard that this was a series, I was beyond excited. And let me tell you she did not disappoint at all!! I honestly wish I was able to leave more than 5 stars.....5 just does not give this book justice......Maybe they can be red instead of a sign that this book is INFERNO!!!

Yup I am giving another 5 star review to C.A. Harms !! EVERY SINGLE TIME

I loved Scarred For Love , as I have loved all books by this author , so signing on for this tour was a no brainer !! I knew Carson and Kate would have a super hot but super intense story. I was slightly horrified with the cliffy but at the same time I LOVED being set up for Max and his story !! As with other series by C.A. Harms I love the multiple POV's and the inclusion of all the characters from the past and always being

I liked this novel a little more than "Scarred by Love". It is necessary that you read the first book before you start reading "Broken by Love", since there story starts out in the first book. It gives you a foundation when reading the 2nd novel. I found similar issues as the first book as some parts of the story were not touched on more fully. In this book it was the situation regarding Kate's mom. It was good to finally figure out what was the last name of Riley and the rest of her family was. ...more

Kate has had enough. She is seven months pregnant and Carson seems to not want anything to do with her. So she moves out to get on with her life without him. But he realizes that she was what he wanted. Carson now believes the saying "You don't know what you want till it's gone". But can he get her back where she belongs? Kate has Riley, her BFF, and she will make it through. Carson doesn't get any sympathy because he knows that everyone knows he screwed up. Can he make Kate see that he has chan ...more

Broken By love is book two in the Scarred By Love series. I loved book one, Scarred by Love and couldn't wait to read more in the series. Broken By Love was definitely a great addiction to the Scarred by love series. We met all of Riley's brothers in book one. Book two is her brother Carson and her best friend Kate's story.

Many books starts off with the characters getting to know each other and then their is something that happens and they have to fight to get back to where they were. This book

I loved being in Carson's mind, "you ready to get out of here?" Kate murmured in between kisses. Hell yeah, I was. I nodded and grabbed for my keys in my pocket." He sure has a lot of stamina, well I would too if I hadn't gotten any in months, "I chuckled and kissed her once more. "Hell yeah, we were. Give me about ten minutes and I'll be ready for round two." These two are freakin' horny teenagers, "oh my god," Kate fisted my shirt, and my d*** twisted. For a brief moment my resolve slipped and ...more

I read book one in February and I've been waiting for this book since then. I wasn't disappointed as I loved it. This author has a fantastic talent. She pulled at all my emotions while reading this book.

This is a brilliant gripping page turner. Don't start unless you have time to finish it. It's that kinda book. I loved the characters in book one and was delighted to read about them again.

I'm looking forward to reading more from this author. Highly recommend this book.

This book was way better than the first one . Kate and Carson are difference in there life to were Carson will have to shape up or risk losing the love of his life kate. The only problem that i have with this book is that it ends with a cliff hanger which you will have to read the book in order to get the juicey detals . I cant wait to see where C.A harms is going to take these couples to next

A little too corny but boy did Carson redeem himself. I also didn't care much about the drama his brothers were getting into. Especially Max and Bree's drama. What is up with these storylines being so similar? I don't like reading about heros like Max so I'll be skipping his book.

3.75 stars

A bit too sweet at times but you've got to love a good old grovel ;)
from the blurb the book sounds promising.
Carson is an ass who kind of emotionally abandons his pregnant girlfriend and when she leaves him he realizes his mistakes and grovels.
That part was fine and should have been the point where the story ends, seriously, it should have ended there.
But no, the author drags it on to an uncomfortable length by providing tidbits from the lives of the side characters which frankly i couldn't have been less interested in.

i think one of the reasons that i was not

I couldn't wait to jump into Carson and Kate's book after meeting them in book one. This one starts off with our couple not in a great place. What follows is the story of our couple. Sometimes we rebel against what is expected of us and don't recognize how good we have it...and this is the case with Carson. By the time he realizes his mistakes it might be too late - or is it.

There is not as much up and down as book one, but it certainly isn't a straight road. I loved that Kate took time to herse

C.A. Harms creates worlds i love to get lost in!

C.A. Harms has once again written a beautifully powerful story of family, friends, love and a lot of ups and downs. I love her writing style and these worlds she brings to life in my head! I feel personally invested in her characters lives , laughing, crying and cheering right along, with every page!
Kate and Carson's story is filled with heartache, family drama, laughter and love. Their story is written beautifully, as only C.A. Harms can!!

I loved that Carson changed his life around and was able to have a future with Kate and their baby. I wish more of the book would have been about them than Max and bree.

Okay. I started this book very early yesterday morning and had it not been for all the work I had to get done, I would've finished it in ONE SITTING. I am a slow reader, mind you, and in no time I passed the 50% mark! I simply could NOT put down the book. I was fully engrossed from page one, and I LOVED every second of it!!

We met Kate and Carson in book one and CA Harms wasted no time in creating emotional angst right off the bat for these two. At the end of Scarred by Love, we found out that K

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

I have been waiting for Kate and Carson's story since I finished Scarred by Love. I knew that there was so much more to those two, and I couldn't wait to see what was next for them. Broken by Love was really well written, and I loved seeing these two again. Broken by Love can be read as a standalone story without having read Scarred by Love. But I would start at the beginning to get some of the back story on these two, as well as to get to kno
