Is Dr. Shriver the answer to her healing?

Can Allyn overcome the broken?


OMG – Margaret McHeyzer – I think you have tipped me over the edge.  LOVED THIS STORY.

I cannot express how much this book captivated and mesmerized me with its extraordinary storyline of pain, suffering, hurt, trust, tenderness, healing and love.

From the Prologue it had me crying big fat tears for Allyn.  In those first few pages I knew I was going to go on an emotional rollercoaster – and OMG it was so worth the ride.

This is not your typical romance book.  It is filled with so much more.  It really is gut wrenching at times as it is so real and raw.  You will feel the emotions as you read this story.  Your heart will break and it will smile. 

It is written beautifully in the first person which helps you understand and feel what the characters are going through.  The way Margaret conveys and expresses her characters emotions and feelings is beyond brilliant.  It is so intense, vivid and clear.  I felt everything they felt.  I was right there with them.

Allyn is a young, energetic strawberry blonde who is attacked by predators who abuse, hurt and damage her beyond repair.  Her life will never be the same.  Will she ever be able to find freedom and happiness within herself?

Dominic is a psychiatrist who deals with challenging and difficult cases.  He is strong, independent, has his own insecurities, but lives his life helping and putting others needs first.  In my mind he is completely beautiful inside and out.  So sincere, tender, caring, loving and the most handsome hero I think I have read to date.

It is almost like destiny is bringing them together.  Allyn needs help and happens to watch a show where Dominic is mentioned.  She takes the first step in trying to help herself after 3 long years of torture and calls his clinic.  He agrees to see her.

The plot, twists and turns really came out and hit me head on.  I really wasn’t expecting any of it.  Exactly what I love in a book.  Just didn’t see it coming.  I was riveted by it.

The journey these two take together is absolutely brilliant and inspiring.  I really don’t have enough words to describe how it made me feel.  It is a long and hard road they endure, but Dominic is always there for Allyn.  She is the light in his life.  Will he be able to heal her and show her that life really is something to cherish.

It reaffirmed for me that even when you are down – no matter how black it is - there is always light at the end of the tunnel wishing and hoping to free you of whatever it is that troubles you.  There will always come that time where you can be free and spread your wings.

I was ecstatically surprised when I read the epilogue.  The fact that Margaret gave us all closure was perfect.  I smiled from ear to ear as punishment was delivered in a shocking and horrific manner.  As the saying goes – what goes around comes around.  Karma – I believe it in.

There are so many quotes/scenes in the book that I wanted to add and share, but I don't want to give to much away, so will update this review after its release date.

Margaret McHeyzer – I love your work.  

One of the Best I’ve read this year.

Congratulations on A Life Less Broken – It really is Brilliant.

Publisher: Independent
Genre: Contemporary New Adult
Release Date: August 2014

Life in Sugartown hasn’t always been easy, not for an ex-con like Elijah, and certainly not for Ana, who grew up desperate for a way out. Meeting Elijah changed all that; Elijah changed a lot of things. You’d think that after three years together and the worst behind them that life would be a walk in the park, but Sugartown’s sexiest couple may be about to face their biggest obstacles yet. Between failed marriage proposals, a trampy ex-lover and a tempting new biker, Sugartown is suddenly not so sweet. They’re head-over-heels in love. It should be simple—but it rarely is. Will they make it down the aisle to the happy ever after they deserve? Or are some relationships just destined to fail?
