Love. I’d hated love for most of my life. I saw how it destroyed the one person I thought I could count on as it sucked him under, leaving him not to care about anything else in the world—including me. But when I didn’t close myself off, I let love consume me. Love and hate, two words that don’t often go together but that’s what I felt for him. Beneath the prince lurked a ...more

Lovely story with an unexpected turn of events! This book surprised me, as things happened that I really wasn't expecting, but it all worked!

This story was about Campbell and her bad choices in love. When she was young, her friendship with Lawson had turned into an erotic affair. Lawson always had strong feelings for her but Campbell had no interest of becoming one of his groupies. Lawson did not fight for her and put a distance between them. They continued to be friends, leaving their past be

Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars!

Change was sometimes good, sometimes bad, but inevitable nonetheless. Inevitable change.”

Losing Her follows the story of Campbell, Lawson and Conner. Their story will take you on one heck of an emotional journey. You will get angry, and frustrated. At times, you may swoon and wish things could be different. But, in the end, you will be dying to know what will happen next!

One of the things that I loved about this book was the prologue. It pulled me in and captivated me.

This book was an emotional rollercoaster set on high speed. Campbell and Lawson's relationship was so heartbreaking yet heartwarming at the same time. I hoped and crossed my fingers that they would end up on the same page at the same time but life had a different plan for them.

Campbell to me seems so lost, broken and searching for love in all the wrong places and that includes with Connor. She makes mistake after mistake

Well Ms. Williams did it again. She wrote a story that will mess with your heart, break it to pieces, and try to put it back together again. Just reading the prologue I was like what just happened. So let's take a walk down the Broken Road.

The first time Lawson sees Campbell he wants her. She is not going to be one of his one night stands. This starts a great friendship. And this is when the story starts to get to me. I wanted to shake Lawson. You can tell he loves Campbell but he can't act on i

So I was super excited to read this book by Cori because I love her writing and this book did not disappoint. I was hooked right away from the prologue and my mouth was hanging open and I couldn’t wait to see what happened. This book is told through both Lawson and Campbell’s POVs so we see what both have been through throughout the book.

This book takes place in the past and present so it was a little confusing at times with the time hops. Lawson and Campbell have known each other since they w

I’ve always been a fan of Cori Williams and with the way she blew my mind in this book, I will always be one. The twists and turns in this book were very unexpected. From the prologue to the epilogue and every page in between, I was hooked. By the time I was finished with this book, I was thinking ‘what the hell did I just read?’ I had to let things sink in and still had a book hangover the next day.

This is a story that is very easy to get carried along with, the pattern and flow are smooth and the characters are charismatic.
The story was sharp, on the outside it may have appeared that it going to follow a fairly standard pattern but I am delighted to say that this had more tricks up its sleeve than that and the author was well prepared for a slow and deliberate build-up of both angst and drama.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked the story line and the book was very well written, the words flowed well.
Lawson Reynolds is in a band called Jensons Outlaws, whilst playing at a county fair one night in Carolina, he meets and falls in love with Campbell Wynn. The only trouble is he doesn't realise it until it is too late and after one glorious night together, he takes off on the road again with his band and doesn't even tell Campbell he is leaving.

Losing Her -the 1st book in Broken Road series left me a little speechless.. This is the 1st book I have read by Cori Williams and definetly will not be my last! I loved it and can't wait for the second book.. I definitely was not expecting some of the twists in this story..

Wow! Yes, that one little word sums it up perfectly! WOW!

Cori Williams is a new author to me. I adore reading new to me authors especially when my first impression of them is simply mind blowing.

Losing her is a riveting tell of love, lust, pain, betrayal, loyalty, addiction, and abuse. The main female character finds herself unable to trust and love after a life of betrayal and abuse. That's until she meet's Mr. Perfect.. or is he?? Torn between her heart, her mind and an overwhelming need for l

I loved every part of the book. It was a page turner from the first chapter. I could not get enough of Lawson and Campbell. Lawson was a famous player who would never settle down. He constantly had girls throwing their selves at his feet. Even though he could have any girl he wanted, He only had eyes for one girl and that was his best friend Campbell.
Campbell had a rough life growing up and thought that was all behind her until she met Conner. Even though Campbell and Lawson have two separate l

I received an ARC for an honest review & am so glad I read this one. I think I found another author to love. Cori Williams is a new author to me, but the synopsis to this book really drew me in, so I gave her a try.

I must say that reading the prologue for this book kind of threw me a bit when I got into reading the chapters, so I decided to stop, go back to chapter 1 and start again without reading the prologue. Awesome idea! I flew through the chapters after that and loved every minute of i

I will admit that I spent several moments of this book totally confused. The prologue and the constant time shifts had my head spinning. It was hard to follow. Even with that, I was drawn to the central story. Lawson and Campbell took me on quite a journey. I loved her in the beginning. She was sassy and independent. Lawson was an up and coming country music star. the timing for these two was never right. They had too many distractions and just when things start to

Once I started, I couldn’t put this one down! The prologue will suck you in and leave you with enough questions that you HAVE to read this in order to figure out what’s going on, it’s not even an option. But as soon as you think you have it figured out, you’re hit with the epilogue to beat all epilogues…what the hell?! Definite cliffhanger here and I’m very anxious for the next book in the series! That epilogue is definitely setting something up for the next book.

I'll be honest and say I was so confused when I read the prologue and then chapter 1. I didn't know if Campbell was the person who stabbed her husband but then you figure out that she's not. The epilogue clears that up. Losing Her is a fast paced novel that I wish was a little more organized. The time jumps are confusing and once you figure out what time frame the characters are in, you're thrown somewhere else. This book does involve domestic violence.

WOW this was a powerful read. This reminded me of a Nicolas Sparks novel. In some ways I hate this story because I am sitting waiting for a happy ending a nice pretty bow. This book shows the struggle is real, they don’t instantly fall in love get together and have perfect musical babies. They take roads that lead them on paths that are sad, lonely, heart breaking. Through it all they always find each other. That was what the story is about finding

This book…wow. Not at all sure what to say. I really enjoyed it and there was a twist at the end that I really did not see coming. I couldn’t believe that was the end of the book. I think I actually shouted at the end. I needed more.

I am really looking forward to the second book, I need to find out what happens. I feel so sorry for Lawson.

This isn’t normally the kind of book that I read.

En bref, on ne sait pas trop dans quoi on se lance en commençant ce roman étant donné le prologue. Et puis petit à petit on tombe amoureux des personnages, on apprécie leur évolution, on veut leur dire de faire attention et là arrive l'épilogue et on comprend le pourquoi du prologue.... Et bordel c'est diablement bien fait !! Je suis très curieuse de lire la suite.

I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Goodness what an emotional story. There are so many ups and downs throughout this whole story, I truly loved the ride we took. Lawson and Campbell both struggle through some tough times. I loved both characters but at times I wanted to smack them both. While this does end in a cliffhanger I am truly happy that I read it. I can not wait until the next one comes out, I have to know what is going to happen.

I thought this would be a great book to read, but I found that I just couldn't keep interest in it. I tried to make myself finish reading this book but I kept skimming through it. I don't like to write bad review. I'm just going to say this just wasn't the book for me. What I don't like someone else might love.

While the warning was right it does have a few triggers. I was pulled into Cam's life and everything she went through. But then I also rooted for Lawson, especially for him to finally pull his head out of his rear to see what I had from the beginning.
This may not be for everyone, but it should be given a chance to pull you in and hold you tight.

The blurb was the first thing that sucked me in. The second thing was I had never read a book from Cori and was happy to read this story.
The prologue had me in a 'WTH', 'OMG', give me more type of mood. After the first 3 chapters I am not sure the book would continue on the same way it began.

I came away from this feeling slightly confused as to what I had read. The story is told from Campbell and Lawson's point of view but jumps back and forth without warning between the past and the present. When Campbell and Lawson first meet, Lawson tries to get into Campbell's pants but she resists his charms and the draw to the country music star. They build a tenuous friendship, with Lawson always wanting more. Their relationship is severely tested when Campbell meets and marries C

Losing her is the first book in the Broken Road series. It has so many twists and turns that your in warp speed trying to read it. Campbell met Lawson at a show his band was playing at. Campbell is sassy but has lousy luck in the dating department and not looking for a one-night stand. Turns out Lawson can't take his eyes off of Cam and know that she is different from all the other girls. Campbell's past becomes her future, Will Lawson be left behind? The cliffhanger has you wanting more now.

4.5 STARS!!!

This author has a unique way of laying out her books. It is not necessarily bad, it is just hard to figure out the timeline at certain points in the story. I was instantly hooked with the prologue. Throughout the entire book I was on the edge of my seat trying to piece everything together and I have to say I was completely stunned with the ending. I cannot wait for the next book and to see what is going on for these characters. It was a shorter read and may contain triggers for some.
Romance Between The Sheets
Speechless – Losing Her has hooked me big time – The Ending - Wow, I am going to go back to the beginning and read this again before the next book comes out as I cannot believe it was twisted that way – brilliant!

This is going to be hard to review in words without giving anything away so here goes….

Firstly, Lawson and Campbell and their young romance, it was frustrating for me at the start of their initial friendship and subsequent physical attraction, I did find parts of explaining how they met
