Broken Aro ~ A Book Review


Open your eyes to darkness. What do you see? Does the darkness frighten you? Now imagine the darkness being the cargo hold of a slave ship. Your city has fallen. Your family is most likely dead. You don't know anyone around you, and some of them aren't even human. Giving up would be so easy to do, but not for Arowyn Mason. Not after being raised in a military family with seven brothers. Every great story should begin with a plan. Aro’s was to escape and to survive. 
Escape comes, but at a price. As they reach the shore, Aro and the other survivors learn that freedom doesn't mean safety. The slavers want their property back and will do anything to get it. The party uses every ounce of their brute strength, a hearty helping of cunning, and even ancient magics to keep themselves alive. Sickness, danger, and even love surprise them at every turn. Dealing with danger becomes their way of life, but none of them ever considered that nothing can be quite as dangerous as a prophecy. Running turns into another race altogether as her world falls to pieces again and again.

My Review: 

This book isn't what I expected at all. Let's just get that out there right now.  And pretty much if I had to sum up my review in one sentence it would go something like "I. Am. In. Love. With. This. Book. AHHH!" 

Fantastic writing, incredible story, phenomenal setting, fantastic characters! Love, love, love, love, love ALL the main characters!  And there are so many twists and turns and heart pounding moments and it made me laugh and cry and this book put butterflies in my stomach! 

I couldn't stop reading it and as soon as I finished I wanted more. 

Now for the part of the review that isn't me just fangirling . . . 

There was one scene that looked like it was going to get really bad. And it kinda made me uncomfortable and I was terrified that afterwards it was going to be one of those things that kept getting mentioned.  But nothing ACTUALLY happened and while Aro did think about it, nothing went into detail, and I think the situation was handled very well.  

Okay, back to fangirling . . . oh my goodness I love this book!!!!! And one more thing I forgot to mention, I hate books with a whiney damsel in distress and a fancy prince coming to the rescue, so I try and stay away from books with Prince Charming.  However, I would gladly be a damsel in distress for the Prince in this book! . . . Just saying.

And here, I give you a teaser from the book!!! 

The men conversed quickly in quiet whispering after their return and Avery told them about the ship. Kei was greeted warmly by Bo and Cain, stared at by the two new men, and glared at by Prince. As far as she was concerned, everything had returned to normal.


  1. Sounds great! I'll have to squeeze another one into my TBR list. :)

    1. It was. :) I know how that feels. And this one has been on my TBR list for a while. So glad I finally got to read it!
