Overall, this was a super sweet story and a short read and I enjoyed it, for the most part. I was definitely a little disappointed because I was blown away by the blurb but I felt like the story felt short, or it was simply not my style.

This is basically a story were both main characters are pretty broken because of situations in the past. They suffered great losses and heartbreak and so they’re a little hesitant (or a lot in Trevor’s case) when it comes to opening their hearts again, which I to

4 Push Me Pull You Stars

Do you remember Dr Doolittle? The old one. Not the new Eddie Murphy version. There was the Push Me Pull You. You never knew which direction it was headed. Some people are like that. We call it mixed signals. Or fickle. Or just bat shit crazy.

Ryann has had it with putting herself out there. She is content with her life now. One without love. But that's the price you pay for being burned. You choose to shut love out.

At first, I felt sorry for myself, but then I had a revel
The very first book of Brooklyn’s I read was, Finding me. That was a few months back and I had won it along with my Twinny Shannon (Same name, too much alike friend.) in a giveaway Brooklyn had done. I was hooked. It had been my number one favorite book of hers. Until I read Brokenhearted. She had asked me to read it and review it as I always do. I had not been prepared for many parts of the book to effect me in the ways it did. She really has such a fantastic and intriguing ability to bring you ...more

This is the story of a doctor who got screwed over by a girl when he was 18 and was still acting like he was 18 when he's in his 30s. This one was OK. There were some problems with timeline where things weren't clear. The heroine seems like a sweet positive girl who has had some bad luck but the hero is a my moods will give you whiplash type of dude and I'm not sure I would have had her patience.

This was a very good story filled with angst, frustration, sadness, anger. It had it all. I loved Trevor even though I want to slap him around a few times to knock some sense into him. He's a typical stubborn, headstrong male who refuses to accept what's right in front of him because of a past that he won't let go of. Both H and h had major issues they needed to work through which made for an interesting story.

However, I do like my stories to have a few more hot and steamy sex scenes, which thi

Trevor and Ryann have both had bad past relationships. Neither of them is looking for someone to fill that spot in their life. But when it happens there really is no escape. Especially when both of their friends keep pushing them together. This was a great and fast read.

Brokenhearted is the first book I have read by the author, Brooklyn Taylor. It's a story of lost love, regret and trying to move on.
I enjoyed the story. I thought the characters were true to life. I especially liked Ryann...Trevor was a break of a downer for me. He was all lost in his "poor poor me" mode. I found the juxtaposition between his demeanor and his profession to be very odd.
Ryann, on the other hand, was a ray of sunshine. I fell in love with her right away. She was damaged in the past

Taylor has written another great book. This love story has twist and turns making the reader question the characters until the very end.

Brokenhearted by Brooklyn Taylor was a story filled with regret. Regret for mistakes of the past and how they shaped the future that both Trevor and Ryann set out for themselves. With an attraction that they both tried to fight for different reasons, Trevor and Ryann were drawn to each other over and over again until they couldn't fight anymore.

Trevor returns to his hometown as an accomplished doctor and nothing like the man that left so many years before. Trevor knew it would be hard to return

Broken Hearted by Brooklyn Taylor was a fast paced story that took you on a journey of redemption.

The book's main characters, Ryann and Trevor both consider themselves broken from the misfortune of their pasts. Ryann is perfectly content with her life, but Trevor is letting the hurt consume him. When these two meet, there's an instant connection but nothing happens. They both move on and eventually find themselves constantly being thrown together either by their two best friends or their work.

Discovering new author is always fun and my introduction to Brooklyn Taylor was an awesome trip . I met some interesting characters , some have left their mark forever in my heart

Trevor James is HOT !!!! Did I mention he's a HOT doctor ?! He's also a man with a broken heart that's laced with regret , resentment and bitterness but that just adds to hiss broody charm, he's a real workaholic , it keeps his mind busy and his thoughts at bay but that will all change soon enough .....he heads home hi

***I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review***

I just want to say that I have liked the couple other things I have read so far from Brooklyn, but I have to say I did not care for this book as much.

The premise of two damaged people finding healing with one another is excellent, but not as accurately displayed as I would have hoped for. The family relationships between the characters (Ryann, her mom; Trevor, his parents) are excellent, even when they are not exactly happy with one anoth

Baggage. We all have baggage. This book was a very good read that addresses that we all have baggage but forgiveness can always happen when you are loved.

I really enjoyed this book. This book was extremely emotional. I mean it when I say it made me feel all the feels. I felt mad, happy, sad, and then it tore my heart out completely and shattered it. By the end though, it had also put all of the pieces back together.

BrokenHearted as a story of love & being brave enough to let go of the past..

Trevor James left Austin full of rage & hate. Unable to cope with his feelings of loss & the anger he focused towards his father, he left his home & everything he knew behind spending the best part of the next decade staying away. He swore he couldn't love again. His cold heart shut off from the world, he truly believed he was broken, refusing to allow himself to feel again. Needing to

This book holds the story of Trevor and Ryann, two people who have been deeply hurt but approach their lives in completely different ways. While Trevor has fulfilled his career dreams and has closed himself completely to any relationship, Ryann has chosen to live happily despite sacrificing her dreams and is reluctant, but not totally opposed, to opening to love again. Add to that Trevor’s motives to return home, the history with his parents and friends and family on both sides pushing them toge ...more

Brooklyn Taylor is a new author for me. If this is the level of work I can expect from her books, I will continue to read her work.

This story followed Trevor and Ryann. The story was amazing. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Ryann's character. She was a lady who was systematically destroyed by an ex but refused to let him win.

Trevor however, there were many times I wanted to tell him to grow some balls, suck it up and stop whining. I understand he was hurt by a past relationship, but really.

Brooklyn Taylor sure knows how to write a story of love and sorrow only to mend the broken heart.

Ryann and Trevor were both broken according to them. Ryann had grown up with only her mom around, quit college, and wound up with a crappy, cheating ex boyfriend. Ryann had decided that all she needed was her friends and family. She loved her job at the bar and helping out with the horses at the James Ranch.

Trevor James was a doctor at the local hospital. He came back to town because of this job open

Ms. Taylor has a way of wrapping you in her stories and holding you hostage until you finish, making you feel as though you need stay lost in the worlds she creates. Sadly real life intervenes and so we have to take our time reading. Ryann and Trevor's story was one I wanted to immerse myself in, and when I had the time that's exactly what I did. After both being broken by love in the past they swore they were never putting themselves in the position to be hurt again. They'd rather live life alo ...more

Brooklyn Taylor is a new author for me and one I will keep my eye on in the future. I love light, sweet, and sappy books but sometimes I need a book to just make me feel. I need a book to make me bleed through emotions and feelings. She did this for me with this book. Brokenhearted will speak to your heart, soul, and deep into your bones.

Brokenhearted takes readers on a journey full of regret, sorrow, sadness, healing, redemption, lust, and love. This book took me on a journey with two p

Enjoyable read about two people learning that love is possible again, despite being burned in the past. I really loved Ryanne in this book. I felt her pain and loved how she worked to build herself back up from the damage caused by her ex. Although she still had some work to do you could see she was open to perhaps taking a chance again on love. After everything came out about what happened with Trevor and his first love, although I understood what he and why he did it, I had issues with how lon ...more

Life throws you curve balls along the way but for Trevor and Ryann they seem to be dealt more than others, both brokenhearted, both running away from heartache and both dealing in different ways. There are times in this book you'd probably like to reach in and bang their Heads together and just scream at them. The premise behind the characters being hurt and learning to trust and love is all there although a little jumbled and rushed at times, there were occasions I felt the connection drifting ...more
