This book starts out in the present and then keeps skipping back to the past to show us what exactly happened to Brody, to make him the man he is today. It also shows us some insight into his relationship with Melanie. Normally I am not a fan of multiple switches between past and present but in this case, it didn't bother me too much. It actually worked pretty well.
Brody is a pretty messed up and broken soul. The last time he was left broken and hurt, he found Melanie and she managed to heal...more
Exciting emotional read.

This continued story had me captivated from the very beginning, I could not put it down. This is Bella Jewel back to her very best! The story is heartbreakingly beautiful and makes you want to keep turning to pages to find out whether the lead characters will suffer a devasting tragedy or an absolutely exceptional happily ever after.
I would definitely suggest reading the other books in the series before this one as you need the background for it to make sense, but ...more
Broken doesn't describe him. His demons now define him. Brody. The name that left my lips so many times. The name that stole my heart. The name that made me into the woman I am today. The name that eventually shattered my world so completely. He built me up with love and desire-his darkness tore me down. Now he is gone. Out there - trying to fight a battle that isn't his to fight. He'll die. No truer ...more

I enjoy reading about their past and their struggles as a couple. We get to experience ...more

This story tells you very quickly the reason, or the main part, why Brady wants to fight a death match with a particular guy he’s been hunting down and boy was I desperate to know. For a few stories this has alluded readers and I thank the author for putting us out of our misery from the beginning. The why and wherefore is embedded into this fabulous story.
Brody and Melanie’s story is told in two time frames; Then and Now. The two lead characters revisit the pa ...more
I have been waiting for Brody's story since we met him. There is just something about a dark and broody male that intrigues me. In this book we get Brody's full story, and you will learn to understand why Brody does what he does. He has lost so much and feels guilty for things he really had no control over. ...more
Wow what a heart wrenching gripping story. I've been waiting for brody's and Melanie story since step lover and it didn't disappoint , it was good to catch up with the Knights brothers and their ladies, the sad thing is this means there is only one more story left Damon's ,what ever will i do when this series finishes 😞 but don't let this put you off buy it now 😍😍😍
I was waiting for his story I was curious about what was behind him fighting and wanting a death match. Who broke him so much?
Well, we find out in this story.
I won't say much, because I don't want to spoil anything for any body else.
There are some surprises, but there are also parts that are very pre ...more
I've loved this series and have anticipated Brodys story. Worth the wait, Bella you have amazed me with passion you can put into each story, how do you keep it up. Each character leaves their mark on you. Brody and Melanie break you apart, oh my! A happy ending looks impossible, so much angst until the last page. Past characters bring so much too. Only down side of reading this story is we're nearer the end.😪
He disappears, leaving his loved ones behind, even Melanie, while he goes on his quest for revenge. But Melanie doesn’t believe their love is over and believes Brody is sinking back into a dark place place, she decides to follow him and bring her ...more
You feel for the characters, then you want to smash their faces in.
This book goes past to present. I'm usually not a fan, but it worked with this story. I wasn't confused or lost. Sometimes I pause and have to reread parts on past to present, but this was done well.
I love this whole series and the characters always give you a bit of everything that you need when reading the book.
“Will she be able to save Brody? 4 stars”
Brody is broken. He hasn’t had an easy life and he just keeps getting hit. Melanie helped Brody heal once. She was there the second time he was broken and in turn he broke her. Without Brody there is no Melanie. Will she be able to pull him out of the dark and remind him there is more to life than guilt? Guilt he shouldn’t have. Only one way to find out.
I liked Melanie. I have to give her credit where credit is due, she was ha ...more
Wow this was a brilliant gritty and heart wrenching story but it is it's own kind of beautiful and it'll leave your heart constantly breaking for Brody and Melanie.
Brody's lost so much in life and when his best friend comes back into his life a broken man and Brody takes on the burden he chooses to honours his friend over the love of Melanie just so he can erase the guilty that clings to him.
Melanie is a beautiful strong woman who even through the devastation of ...more
Addictive page turner for sure! I couldn’t put this one down, I had to get to the end to see how it all panned out for Brody and Melanie....... I wasn’t disappointed, well actually I was because it came to an end and I wanted more more more!
I loved Melanie she's one of those strong women who are willing to do whatever it takes to save the man that she loves and to me, I always find that amazing.

This book was absolutely an emotional ride as we finally come to Brodie's story and the love of his life, Melanie. Brody is ready to fight to avenge his friend Mick, a deeply troubled war-veteran who is completely engulfed with PTSD. It's not a pretty story, it's raw & full of angst. It highlights what so many of out young, strong men experienced in their aftermath of the war in Afghanistan, Iraq, against Isis, against a common enemy. War R ...more
