This was the perfect novella for the Broken Series by Ker Dukey. If you haven’t read them, well what are you waiting for? The Broken was my first book by Ker, and she got me hook line and sinker. She’s got the mind of a dirty, kinky, badass and I heart the hell out of her!

This is Mikey’s story, which I’ve been dying for, and he’s grown into the tall, dark, and sexy man I always knew he’d be. Like his parents, Sammy and River, his life wasn’t always sunshine and rainbows, but he’s done well for h

Wow what a great Novella to The Broken series

This book is the story of Mikey...Sammy and River's son all grown up
I love all Ker's books and have grown to love Sammy, River, Jasper Kyra and Derek and all the gang

I was so glad when I read that Ker Dukey was going to give us more into this fantastic series. The Broken Tethers That Bind Us is a novella that gives us more Sammy River Jasper Derek and Kyra and also introduces us to their very grown up children.
The Broken Tethers That Bind Us is a novella about finding your fate in the person who you were raised to love like family. There is no Taboo here! This story is such a great love story it is filled with tension and agonizing guilt but in the end you

I just love this series.

Ker can write a dang phone book and i would read it.

This was a fantastic novella.

I read it in a very short time.

I want to know whose story will be next because it left us with not really a cliffhanger but more of a crap load of questions.
I really need to read Terrie's story.

Ow and The twins?

That one will be a heart breaker I am sure.

So for now I will just wait.
But not for long before I start stalking

Gawd, this series is phenomenal! The curveballs and shocks just keep coming, each one better than the one prior! There is angst and drama yet it's never prolonged, everything happening quickly so there's never a doll moment! This is yet another powerful, insanely sexy book!!!

This novella is captivating from the first chapter, following the children featured in previous novels, it's a cleverly written catch up in the series that also holds the promise of many more stories yet to be told.

It's no secret that the Broken series is my all time favorite series of Ker Dukey's.

This book only solidifies my love for this series.

I love each and everyone of the characters in the Broken series and now in this third book we get to meet the kids all grown up and full of hormones.

You can't help who you fall in love with even if you try and fight the situation from happening.
If you are ment to be together the outcome is inevitable and mikey's story is no exception.

You’re family to me and that’s all you can ever be are Mikey's words to Ayra.

I think I liked this book a bit more than book 1 and 2 but I couldn't really wrap my head around all the kids liking the other kids so it wasn't the best. Sure it's cute but no one is branching out and moving on. The families are staying together. It was a nice, crazy read. Seeing how protective the brothers are of the girls made me smile.

What can I say I just love Ker Dukey books.

This is a wonderful story of Sammy and Kendals son Mikey and Jaspers daughter Ayra.
I loved this book as I love all of Ker Dukeys books.

This is a love story about two people who was more family then friends but you cant help who you fall in love with.

I hope there will be more from this series if so I cant wait.

This is a novella for The Broken series! If you haven't already read the first two books I suggest you do that before reading this! I loved the first two books in this series, so I was really excited to read more of my favourite characters!

This novella is based on the lives of the 'Broken' children- River, Sammy, Derek, Jasper and Kyra's kids. We still get to hear from the original characters which is a huge bonus! Told from River and Sa

I'm a huge fan of Ker Dukey's work. When I read her first book.. Broken. I was speechless. Then I read The Broken Parts of Us and was amazed. The Broken Tethers That Bind Us was an unexpected treat. She keeps these little numbers hidden and then surprises us each chance she gets.

The this little novella takes place years after the first two. Children grown up and starting relationships of their own. We see Mickey all grown up (the story is in primarily in his POV BTW). His struggle with

The Broken was the first book of Ker’s that I read, and that’s what started my obsession with this author. The Broken Tethers That Bind Us is the story about Mikey, River and Sammy’s son.

He is all the best bits of River and Sammy rolled into one package. I really enjoyed seeing how all the characters had grown-up and changed, and seeing any lasting effects that the past had on them as a group!

This book is connected to Broken and The Broken Part of Us. This one is about the kids all grown up. You'll love this one just as much as the others if you did love the first two. All the characters in the book are great and I love how they all come out in this book.

This novella was for me, much like the rest of the series, amazing and I loved it.
