4.5 stars

I was skeptical about this book, but it turned out to be the BEST book in this series!

Beautiful love story!

Amazing and strong heroine. Loved how she stood up for herself and her kids, loved how she grew the backbone!
Great hero. Genuinely good man!

Some side characters and events were a bit exaggerated, but overall it was a very emotional and lovely read.

Possible triggers: both MCs had deceased exes, but it was solved very nice and respectful.

It could be 3 or 4, I just couldn't decide because it is exactly what it is, 3.5 stars for me...

Well, I've done something I guess I never did before and read Book 3 in a series without reading Book 1 or 2. Maybe you had better follow the order to get to know these people better.

The Plot:

We have a deceased husband at the very beginning of the book and two wives left behind!

Yes, two !!!

I was going to skip this book, but when I read Leonor's review
(here), I changed my mind.
I loved the story and cheered for our heroine and I wished Eric's soul was burning in the marble of hell.
Our hero is wonderful!
I cried and became emotional in several passages of the book.
I had already imagined what would happen, I think the fruit does not fall far from the tree. It was just as I imagined.
I finished reading with a good feeling, which is rare lately.
Kudos to the author.

Five Healing Stars *****

I simply adored this book. Samantha who was also a victim of Eric’s horrible actions decided to become a survivor instead. And Blake, the man with the broken heart; went from being her lifeline to her salvation. Beautiful!!!!!

“What would you change if you could?”

Natasha Madison is no stranger to my TOP FAVORITES list, and what she brought to the table with BROKEN LOVE STORY, the EPIC finale to her Love Series, just BLEW ME AWAY emotionally, mentally, and physically. Talk about two broken souls brought together by tragedy after tragedy…I’m just so speechless. The crazy thing is, is that I knew what was coming because I’ve read the two books before and it revolves around a single event, and it still completely

Ooooohhhhhhh, so beautiful!!! The ending of this series was gearing up to be a good one, and Natasha Madison did not disappoint! She has given us a heartfelt, emotional story that is sweet, swoony and so freaking romantic! With a slow burn romance, a whole lot of surprises and all the feels, I devoured this book in one sitting and I absolutely loved it.

This is Blake and Samantha’s story, and it gives us the other side of the drama that be

Broken love was an all consuming story of heartbreak and worlds ripped apart. This story is full of emotion, anguish, anger and moving forward when everything is trying to hold you back.

I’ll be honest I wasn’t sure how Samantha’s story was going to be told. Knowing who she is and even knowing that the past events were not her fault it was still hard to think that her and Blake would be good for each other all thing considered.

Blake’s closes himself off as well and his story is just as sweet as i

This was my favorite book in this series. Blake was everything a good book hero should be. Samantha was a strong heroine and I loved how she loved her girls. Slow burn and well developed chemistry with these characters- I really enjoyed this book!

Oh this story broke me so much more than the first book in this trilogy and I loved it!! Sounds crazy but I love when an author is able to make me feel so much in books.

The title pretty much explains this book - your heart will get broken but Madison does mend it right back up. I was so very excited to read this story since the beginning because I wanted to see what Samantha had endured during this all this. Before I continue - let me clarify that you must read these books in order or

"This is how my perfect life became broken."


When I tell you this is the must read series of the year for sweet and engaging storylines, I mean it when I say this is the series you need to read. Let go of your problems, pick up these books, and just smile your way through the entire series. I'm serious. While they are very light on actuality in some aspects, they are very, very on point with sexy and sweet, engaging and perfect.

For a few years now Natasha Madison has been my go to author. There is something about her characters and her writing that is not only addicting but also all-consuming. I always finish the novel feeling completed.

Broken Love Story is the final book in the Love Story series.
Blake and Samantha’s story is one that I’ve been highly anticipating for a while now.

I've been madly in love with this fantastic series from the very beginning. I've devoured all three books but this one is my absolute favorite. It's an epic emotional rollercoaster that gave me all the feels. All three books can be read as standalones but they are interconnected. It all started with Hailey's grief over losing Eric and her coping with the shock and aftermath of finding out that her deceased husband has lead a double life - with a loving wife and two daughters living next town.

Blake is the big brother every girl needs. Book 3 in this series and it starts out with Blake’s POV on the heartbreak his sister suffered. The way he handled everything will just warm your heart. We got to see a side of him that we didn’t see so much in the other two, his huge heart. When Blake met Samantha the widow of his sister husband he was extremely kind to her. He saw the sorrow in her eyes.

Samantha was a widow and mother to two little girls. She grew up in the system and without a family

So despite being told I should have read the first book to get a better understanding I didn’t read. I pretty much went in head first and blind with this story and I don’t regret one moment of it! Right off the bat this story sucked me in and I knew it was going to be intense and heartbreaking. This was such a messy situation for both characters and this book made my heart race while reading. I’m doing my best to avoid spoilers but this book is all sorts of deep and I’m only up to chapter 7! Nat ...more

Wow, where do I start? This was one of those books that hooked me from the first chapter and refused to let me go. I went through so many emotions reading this book that I felt like I was on a never ending roller coaster.There was humour, angst, sadness and so much more.
 
I fell hard for all the characters in this story. Such was the depth and strength of Natasha Madison’s writing and her ability to draw the reader in. This book is a

Oh my word, I have to say if you haven't read any of this authors books, start with this series. From book one till book three i have been anxious on edge and some parts just crying.
Natasha you made me cry again.

How do you recover from all the lies you find out from your husband. And then you cant even confront him you can't be angry at him scream and shout. And the only person who is there for you is the 'other womens' brother, Blake
Blake has his own sadness and his own issues. But when he meet

Broken Love Story is my new favorite story by this author. It really shows that there is always another side to every story.

Samantha has her whole world falling down around her when she loses her husband, his secrets are discovered, and the only family she has ever know now seem to be working against her.

Blake buried his heart along with his first love years ago. He sees both sides of this tragedy and can’t help but step in when he recognizes someone who seems just as broken as he is.

It has been a while since I read books 1 & 2 of this series so when I started reading this book I was sitting there thinking, hmmmm, this story sounds so familiar. LOL. Well if you read the first two books you know why. This books is the about the second woman deceived and married to lying scumbag, Eric.

Samantha is the 1st wife, the legal wife, with two young daughters, who's life is destroyed when her lying husband dies in a plain crash, early parts of the book are familiar as we relive the mo

Holy crap I wasn't ready. After reading Perfect Love Story and Unexpected Love Story, I hoped and prayed Broken was about Samantha and Blake. AND HELLO IT WAS. After all my finger crossing and rain dancing in hopes it was this story, I thought I was prepared for their love story.

This is the final book in the Love Series . This is Blake and Samantha’s story. What we see is the other side of the drama that started everything and I was enthralled by everything that went on. I was hooked and couldn’t stop reading. This could be read as a standalone but I do recommend that the other books be read first so that you understand what is going on with the storyline. Samantha thought she has a perfect life, perfect husband except for the times he did travel and beautiful children. ...more
