Broken Heart | Book 1- Angel Rose
The first 15% of the book was so emotionally heart wrenching, I wanted to grab our heroine, Jenesis hug her and hide her away. Emotionally she was all over the place, trying to be a normal 21 year old college student all the while dealing with her “monster under the bed”. Sentence to sentence you could feel her struggle. In a word, she was tortured. I thought for sure from this point on, our poor Jenesis would catch a break and get some happy in her life after picking up the broken pieces of her life and moving to New York City and starting a new job. She meets Dave, a police Captain and her boss. She develops a father / daughter relationship with him or what she assumes is a father / daughter relationship since she has actually never had a loving relationship with a father. No, tragedy strikes again, leaving Jenesis once again broken and emotionally torn apart. How much more can this poor girl take? Unfortunately for her, the more the story continues; I felt like, Dave her surrogate father was a lot like her real father; a drunk and a jerk. We meet our leading man, Michael Hunter defense attorney. Jenesis falls head over heels in love. We watch as Jenesis is once again conflicted and torn apart by the two men she loves. Michael and Dave are at odds with one another; a cop and a defense attorney. Both of them pull her in different directions. The whole time I am thinking again, can this poor girl catch a break? Angel Rose does a great job dropping hints that something is defiantly not right with Dave and Michael’s hate fueled encounters. Hints are dropped there is more to their relationship then is being told. This book is not your typical love story, it is packed full of one girl’s tragedy and heart break, throw in a huge side dish of deceit and secrets you have a love story that keeps you guessing.
Angel Rose does a great job making you feel the emotional roll coaster our leading lady in on. Michael is not your typical book boyfriend, he is borderline jerk, and again Angel does a great job keeping us wondering if he is a good guy. There was so much going on 85% of this book I was turning pages, thinking to myself “I didn’t see that coming” praying it wouldn’t leave me hanging. However, it did. It ends in a cliffhanger, making me want to run out and grab volume two. The book is fast paced and keeps the book moving along. The only small issue I had with the book moving so fast I felt like I was missing something. There was a lot going on in the beginning of the book with her Aunt Stephanie and an “Uncle” Mike ( who is not really an uncle, but a close family friend) then they just faded away with little explanation. I felt like the where holes in the storyline that could have been filled in. It was a good debut novel. I am looking forward to part two and really hope for Jenesis sake she finds some peace! Angel Rose has written a great female lead that deserves her HEA!
