Review: Broken by Megan Hart

It's 1am and I'm writing a review. Not because I'm bored, but because I couldn't wait until morning to share how I feel about this book. Seriously. 

Broken by Megan Hart

BrokenThis month my name is Mary. My name is different every month—Brandy, Honey, Amy…sometimes Joe doesn't even bother to ask—but he never fails to arouse me with his body, his mouth, his touch, no matter what I'm called or where he picks me up. The sex is always amazing, always leaves me itching for more in those long weeks until I see him again.

My real name is Sadie, and once a month over lunch Joe tells me about his latest conquest. But what Joe doesn't know is that, in my mind, I'm the star of every X-rated one-night stand he has revealed to me, or that I'm practically obsessed with our imaginary sex life. I know it's wrong. I know my husband wouldn't understand. But I can't stop. Not yet.

My Review:
I would like to start off my review with this gif. 
This is exactly what my face looked while reading Broken. (Yes, I wore this ridiculous O face for more than twenty-four hours. The people at the grocery store looked at me funny.) 

I purchased the book because I thought the blurb sounded awesome. Like, super awesome. But the ended up being so much more than I could ever even begin to explain. That sounds corny as hell, like a first date that won't have a second... but seriously. Broken is AMAZING. I previously read Dirty by Megan Hart. I liked the book, BUT I didn't love it. This book is on a totally different wavelength. 
I'm not kidding. 8% in my mind was blown. Literally splattered on the wall. 

(Yes, I seriously just got that graphic). 

Megan Hart does something with her characters that I can't even begin to describe. The detailed sexual encounters that Joe has from the POV from all different women is off the chain and completely genius. 
She makes you love the characters. Especially Adam. I spent most of the book in turmoil, because I loved Adam's character. 

Even though there were times when I didn't want to love him and I wanted to love Joe. Hart does a spectacular job of making you feel the same emotions that Sadie feels throughout the book. 
This read is raw, full of emotion, and so real there were times I could taste it. I cried. I laughed. I loved. Hats off to Megan Hart. 

This book deserves more than five stars.

I purchased this book on Amazon.


  1. Great review! I noticed on Goodreads you were reading this so its now on my to-read list too :) It looks rather good!

    I've nly read one of Megan Harts books 'All Fall Down', which I really enjoyed.

    1. Thank Dee! You should definitely read it. Super duper good.

      I haven't read that one. Is it dark and freaky? lol.

    2. Its not dark. Its about a family who live in a cult, and when they find out the leader is planning a mass murder/suicide, a girl (Sunshine), is given a piece of paper by her mother with her real fathers name and address on, and her and her young children are snuck out. It's all about her and her children adjusting to life on the 'outside', a life which is so strange to them.

      I enjoyed it.

    3. Oh, wow. That sounds really interesting. I can't imagine reading a book by her that isn't erotica, lol. I'll definitely have to check it out. :)
