This is Martha's second book about Abby and Rick. In this book, we find out what kind of person Rick was. To be honest, when I realized Rick was the one that lost Abby I wanted to feel sorry for him. As I read this book I was glad Abby got away. Even after finishing the book, I do not feel he is a good person. I do see that he is trying and if this is in anyway a real person, I wish him the best. I did think the author did a very good job of writing about how people use their past issues as ...more

Rick hasn’t found contentment, and it’s possible he may never. He strives for peace of mind, even though he has lost his sibling, Scott and of course Abby, all within a short time span. Being an alcoholic and a sex addict, Rick struggles with his existence. After a period of elated elevations, his well-being tumbled to the rock bottom pit of misery. Succeeding her much-admired ‘Broken Pieces’ first novel, ‘Broken Hearts’ is the sequel of author, Martha Perez beloved series. With a dynamic story ...more

Like many of us, Rick Owen is a man fighting his own demons. This story not only focused on Ricks dependencies but also puts it in a larger perspective, giving us an in-depth look into the past and present experiences which undoubtedly led to his deep issues with alcoholism and sex addiction. Rick has suffered some deep losses, and Perez captures his eternal struggle perfectly. I recommend this story to anyone who has faced challenges with love, loss, or dependency. This is an emotionally ...more

A Page-Turning Story of One Man's Struggle to Get His Life Back On Track

In this follow-up story to Broken Pieces, Rick is swallowed up in self-pity over losing Abby. He misses work for weeks on end, and his brothers help, but not in ways good for a man yearning for the woman who spurned him. He finds himself in the arms of women he doesn't love, returns to having sex with his ex-wife, and meets a nice woman who could help turn his future into a bright one...If only he could forget about his

This book was absolutely fantastic! I've never been one for romance but after I read this I instantly became a fan bit only of romance but of Martha's as well! She had me drawn in from start to finish and it was absolutely breath taking! I only wish that I could give her more than five stars because she deserves at least twenty!!!

For Die-Hard Romantics!
After reading Broken Pieces I was thrilled to see a sequel. Author Martha Perez crafts a most enduring story here with our heartbroken Rick Owens who is on a one-man destruction course. He is a sex addict and alcoholic. I guess some men never recover from a lost love. He can’t have the one thing he wants. That is Abby, the love of his life. I got so involved in this story as my heart sank every time Rick thought he found a little bit of hope for a life of love and family.
