Broken by J.B. McGee Book Tour ~ Review and Giveaway

While dealing with the loss of her mother, she experiences her first heartbreak. She commits herself to her studies and runs away from any emotions that aren't safe.

Broken Review

I'll be honest...It took me awhile to get into this one.....flipping between the past and present kinda confused me at times to the point where I was going....What? Who was that? When? That being said, just stick with it...I did and was not disappointed.  3.5 stars from me.

This book is the story of Gabby and Bradley. Gabby struggles with issues she has faced in life like the loss of her mother, and a severely broken heart done by two people she thought she would always be able to trust.  Gabby meets Bradley at a wedding and he is a confident, cocky, wealthy CEO, who always gets what he wants from women and doesn't believe in relationships. Broken is their journey of finding true love and taking a second chance at life.

Broken is a good debut novel for J.B. It is a sweet love story that will leave you wanting more Bradley and Gabby and cheering for their relationship to work.

Mending Book #2 will be available 12/26/12

Mending Review

Where to even start....the first thing is be prepared for this book to knock your socks off! It starts out right away with a bang and about 11% in I was chewing my nails and having some major book anxiety! I love when a book does that to me! I never seen half the things coming and I love the element of surprise! I could not put it down....5 stars!

Mending starts right off with the continuation of Gabby and Bradley's story, it also takes us back in the past so we see their relationship develop.  They are in a committed relationship and Gabby is trying to work through her issues in counseling and her and Bradley seem to be in a good place.  I am not gonna give any of the story line away since this book is not yet released but all I can say is WOW.....just WOW so did not expect that!

J.B. has knocked this one out of the park and it was great to see her writing evolve from Broken.  Mending is a story about healing, trust, forgiveness, and finding that true love really does exist and is worth fighting for. A must read! Can't wait for book #3!
