      ★★★★★! Broken (stand-alone). Don’t judge a boss by his cover. From one night stand to forbidden office romance until painful secrets threatens everything!“So tight,” he whispers, his chest pressed to my back as he nuzzles my neck. “Has anyone been here since me?”Broken (stand-alone) starts off toe-curlingly sexy with a kinky one night stand in a bar bathroom. Come Monday junior marketing employee Theodore Davenport, Theo is shocked to discover the man who fucked him senseless [...]

      4 Stars!!‘Broken’ was emotional, at times intense and surprisingly not as heavy as I expected to be. Nicola Haken delivered a well written story that deals with tough subjects like mental illness, suicide attempts and depression. Now, to be honest I was a little reluctant to read this one. Not only because I’ve never read this author before, but also because I know not every author can handle very well this subject matter. I’m glad to say Mrs. Haken handled everything in a very caring, r [...]

      ***5Stars***"I'm too much.Too broken.Life is better alone.I like it that way".This book had me hooked from the very beginning,such an emotional story.I actually didn't read the blurb but saw a friend's review whose opinion I really value(thanks Wendy) and a recommendation from another friend who totally gets me( thanks Ralu) and it was a must read and it certainly didn't disappoint.Theo is in his twenties and is definitely not one for one night stands.That is until one night he is inexplicably d [...]

      4 Stars! I almost didn't read this one. Definitely make note of the warning. ***Please note*** This book contains scenes of self harm, mental illness and suicidal ideation which may pose as a trigger, or be uncomfortable for some readers.I don't usually care for the heavier reads. But something made me pick this one up (probably the cover). I thought I would try a chapter and see how I feltd it pretty much sucked me in right away. And oddly enough, despite the heavy subject matteraling with ment [...]

      “Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.”Broken is one of those books who got me hooked by it's very very FIRSTY line. I have never started a book with that much of a heavy heart. The preface breaked my heart and all i was praying that please GOD don't let anything happen like this! This was my first book of this author and I must say she done a great job convincing me to try her books. This book breaked me, made me angry, made me see some things in such a light and changed my behaviour a [...]

      ***4.5 Stars***Broken crayons can still colour.My cup runneth over with the honest emotion and unfiltered beauty that is this book! First off, I want to reiterate the author's note regarding possible triggers in this book. Heed the warning if you think the triggers may apply to you. However, if you're skeptical about this book because you think it's going to be dark and heavyease know that it's not and don't let that deter you from reading it. Is it emotional? Yes. Is it heavy? I don't think so. [...]

    • Jan says:

      Broken is a story that hit very close to home for me. Therefore, it would be easier to rate this book and deal with my misery in a quiet way, but for a strange reason I feel compelled to spill my guts and trample on my feelings a bit more while I write this. Don’t expect a review. It will be Online Therapy and I won’t blame you if you stop reading this right now. A long time ago I had a very dear friend as troubled as one of the characters here. Same as Theo, I had no idea how to help my fri [...]

      "Broken crayons can still colour."Heartbreaking. Broken made me cry, I won't lie, but it left me feeling hopeful. There is no cure for the mental illness that James lives with and it is something that he will always live with and hopefully always fight. Until Theodore, he didn't have much reason to, or much hope of succeeding.James Holden is the CEO of Holden House. The company has been in his family for ages and when his father passed away a few months ago, the company was left in James' hands. [...]

      "oken crayons can still colour."Oh, James! What have you done to me? I feel so emotionally drained to write all what I'm feeling about this book.Despite reading the blurb and some reviews, I thought that the beginning of the book was a bit ordinary. Two gay boys (men), meeting each other in very "interesting" circumstances, lusting after each other and then learning that they have to work together. Nothing special until that point.When James and Theodore start to learn things and get to know eac [...]

      This is our story. It's not supposed to end here. I don't know what to say that hasn't been said in the many, many glowing reviews, except that this book deserves all the stars and more. Haken tackles the difficult topic of mental illness with sensitivity and grace. Broken is sexy, romantic, and nuanced. This isn't a simple story; it's complex and heartbreaking, but it left me feeling hopeful. James may be broken, but, as his therapist tells him, broken crayons can still colour."We'll take it on [...]

      **3.5 stars**A couple of things you need to know before picking up this book:-If suicidal ideation, suicide attempt or scenes of self harm pose as triggers for you, this may not be a book you want to read.-This is a very, very long book. Like 8667 kindle locations long.-The story focuses on mental illness, depression and (view spoiler)[ bipolar disorder (hide spoiler)].Congrats to the author for not glossing over the details of mental illness, for using it respectfully, and not as a tool to crea [...]

      5+ Stars ~ Blew me away!!!!This was an amazing book! When I started the book I was like "Wow! What have I got myself into " and that was before I even got to chapter one! All I can say is hang on cause this book is going to blow. You. Away. Nicola Haken is a great writer, she brings depth and emotion to her characters, making them multidimensional and allowing them to come alive in the readers mind! The MC in this book are Theodore and James. James is CEO of Holden Publishing house, he is a man [...]

    • Claude says:

      Ohhhh James, James, Jamesat guy makes me feel so much things. When some people fight to survive, he fights to just live, just breathe EVERYDAY. I've so much respect for what he IS. When I heard about the story of his life, i was really heartbroken. Because we all lived through difficult timesI saw myself many times in him (my mother is likely similar to his, she just can't understand why someone could do that kind of thing to his family).There are so many moments in my life when I feel like I'm [...]

IT.WAS.FANTASTIC! It was sooooooo good! I really really enjoyed it and I loved it! Wow!

    • Wendy says:

      OMGis book did a number on me. Though this was not an easy read was a very beautiful one ;)I do want to point out the warning in this book, because there are some serious triggers and this book doesn't pull any punches. I'm not going to spoiler it too muchjust saying.Theodore is a very happy out and proud gay man. He has good friends, a nice family and he has recently start working a new job at a big publishing house. Which for Theodore is awesome, because he loves books and is secretly writing [...]

I feel I can't thank her enough!!!!So, RALU you are the best!!!Broken was one of the most heartbreaking stories I have ever read, but in the same time it was so REAL and so powerful!

    • Shile loves books says:

      I’m broken, Theodore. I always have. I always will be.The darkness still looms over my head, threatening to rain down on me. This book was beautifully written and broke my little heart. The first 40% was all about laughter, and David Gandy. Then James decided to open up to Theo and my heart broke.Theo and James were perfect for each other . I wanted to hold James so tightly and tell him everything was going to be alright. Theo oh! i loved him, he was the anchor, he was loving, supportive and n [...]

    • Jeanne says:

      4.5 stars!This was really good, I would even say it's the best MM romance I've read, not that I'm an expert or anything! The story just had so much depth. I love books about depression and mental illness, but good ones aren't easy to come by, especially in romance. I won't even go there unless the book has been screened by a trusted friend, (thanks J!). I thought this was very believable, realistic, and well written. This was my first book by the author, so I'm looking forward to checking out he [...]

    • Bev says:

      I can't leave much of a review for this amazing read without giving away spoilers. What I will say is that it was fantastic. I went from wanting to junk punch James in the beginning to crying for him to absolutely loving him so hard. That man wrecked me with what he was going through. Theo - I loved all the way through, he was utterly perfect for James. This had all the feels, with the great bonus of it being a "British" book. Loved the UK slang and references, we don't get enough books that own [...]

      Entre las 4 y las 5 estrellas. Quizás no me ha parecido tan bueno como Counting Daisies, pero una cosa no se le puede negar a la autora o al libro, y son todos los sentimientos que te despierta: tristeza, desesperación, esperanza y mucho amor.James lucha contra series enfermedades mentales, y mientras Theodore no es la respuesta a todos sus problemas si es el amor que hay entre ellos el vehículo para conseguir convencer a James que la felicidad también es posible para él.El tratamiento de l [...]

      Theodore Davenport is having a tough time forgetting about the hot stranger he had a bathroom “quickie” with while he was out clubbing with his friends. He NEVER does that, but for some reason, he cannot stop thinking about the stranger. It is not until Theo starts his new job and runs into the hot stranger again. Yea, it is his bossJames Holden is arrogant and obnoxious, and is used to getting what he wants. When he sees Theodore, he is unsettled for what he is feeling. He has never wanted [...]

    • 1-Click Addict Support Group says:

      I suspect this is going to be a hard review to write. Because Broken certainly was, for me, a hard book to read. Not because it wasn't an excellent book, let me be completely clear about that. It was. It was incredible. Heartfelt. Heartbreaking. Hopeful. Hurtful. Honest. I could go on, but I won't. Because what good are adjectives without reason? Broken hit awfully close to home. Almost too close, if I am honest—which, in order to do justice to this spellbinding book, I need to be. As someone [...]

      ⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱*Might contain spoilers*⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱ This book was quite hard to read. Not because of the writing, but because of the story. The pain. The familiarity. It was quite heartbreaking, actually. As I lost my brother to suicide, so reading about attempted suicide it hits home. I am glad though, that I can read books where the ending is healing of sorts. That it was attempted, but not successful. Oh how I wished that someone had found my brother before it was too late. Unfortuna [...]

    • Amanda says:

      4.5 starsBroken is the second M/M about mental health issue that I've read this year. Although is not as dark and heavy as the one I prior, is still a page turner for me. I like the humor in the story, the gay/lesbian friendship being depicted and of course, the complicated man, James Holden. Theodore, the man with a fascination towards David Gandy and self-proclaimed not-a-slut had a one night stand in a club's bathroom with a mysterious man in suit, only to find out that said man is his new bo [...]

      ***** 5 "Pain Is Inevitable" Stars ***** "The pain is there. It never leaves. Sometimes it's bearable, but it's always there. It's pecked away at my soul all my life and, finally, it's won.I surrender."James Holden looks like he has it all, besides being an arrogant, pompous ass that gets in the pants of any man he wants. James is the CEO of his own publishing house, James looks to be your normal rich, hotshot. Looks are very deceiving."I'm not normal.I'm fucked up.Broken.Irreparable."James figh [...]

    • ~Kristin~ says:

      4.5 StarsWhat an emotional journey this was, I think this book has given me a new perspective of mental illness. I always consider myself open minded and try to live my life without judging others, which is not always the easiest thing to accomplish, I was so surprised by a lot of the comments made while James was in treatment and appreciated the positive points of view. This was a really good story that touched me.

    • Fabi says:

      The title and the beautifully compelling cover drew me in immediately. I knew I was going to read this one even before my GR friends started five-starring it. As I often do with books I know I'm going to read ASAP, I barely skimmed the blurb and only nodded at the rave reviews. I love going into a book blind. It reminds me of the (very) old days wandering through the shelves at the bookstore waiting for the one that would catch my eye. While I hesitate from calling those 'the good old days' beca [...]

    • Susan says:

      This is a tough one to review. I’m not sure I can even do it without pouring my heart out here.This is a serious case of it’s me, not the book.I’ve lived with a depressed person for 10 years. I do realize that not every person is like my ex-husband, but I’m still exhausted, even though we’ve divorced more than a year ago.To be Theodore and to live with James, who is managing life, not really living it (my opinion, coloured because of my experiences), I get tired just thinking about it.

      "There was in intensity in his stare that I can't seem to forget, almost as if he saw deeper than what I was offering. Like, somehow, he saw me." - James This story took me to a emotional turmoil which left me sobbing badly. The story was beautifully written and it gripped me mentally so much that I actually wanted to hug both James and Theodore. James, the way he considered himself damaged, broken, irrecoverable and the pain from which he is going through and Theodore for never leaving James, h [...]
