Bailey Ard's Blog of Wonder

I love to read books about romance and especially about fictional characters who are like me. Dystopian books are also some of my favorites. My favorite authors include Ellen Hopkins, Veronica Rossi, Molly McAdams, and Stephenie Meyer. I also love the ocean and chilling with friends whenever I have the time.


For today's book blog I would like to type about this amazing novel called Broken by Kelly Elliott.  A young woman by the name of Whitley moves to Llano, Texas with her best friend Courtney to escape her abusive "fiance", Roger.  When she gets there, heart throb Layton Morris sweeps her off of her feet, and she falls madly in love with him.  Actually that doesn't happen, but it does later in the story.  Like Whitley, Layton has been hurt too.  His older brother, Mike, dies while serving time in the Marines.  Layton's girlfriend, Olivia, also leaves him the day after his brother was killed.  In the beginning when Layton and Whitley first meet, both are scared to fall for each other.  They don't want to be in love again because of their pasts which I can understand that. After a few weeks I think, Layton finally tells Whit that he loves her (cue Prince Charming moment).  Although it may seem like the fairytale ending something drastic happens near the end of the book. I have read this book before, but I don't want to spoil it.  So if you love romance novels I would definitely check this book out.  Another author who writes in the same genre is Molly McAdams which is one of my favorite authors! Have fun reading and try not to cry!
