🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Broke my Heart Stars
I didn’t break her heart, and she didn’t break mine — we broke each other’s.
I never stopped loving her, but time and distance played its cruel role in ripping us apart three years ago when she moved halfway around the world. Now after all those endless miles away, she’s returned . . . but I’m not the guy I was before.
Beautiful, kind, and loving, she’s the same — my hope. The only one who can make a day better, who can make me feel again with one kiss, one touch, one night.
There’s so much I have to put back in place now that I’m alone and on my own. Things I never wanted at the age of twenty-five. When I receive an unexpected letter that might hold the clues to everything I desperately need to understand about my family, I’m sure I have to follow it. But that means leaving her once more.
She says she’ll come with me, and having her by my side will unbreak my heart . . . or destroy it.
That’s the chance I have to take.
Well this one certainly had me bawling, Lauren Blakely is certainly the queen of the RomCom but this one is a little different to her usual jolly stories.
This is a second chance romance, which is one of my favourite types, and this one has moved into my most favourite spot!
Andrew is trying to come to terms with the death of his brother, and we see (and hear) the pain of his grief and heartache.
Holland is an old flame of Andrew’s and has always loved him, but timing, jobs, and life got in the way, so they stayed friends.
Holland moved away for work and lived in Tokyo where Andrew’s brother spent his last days.
After Andrew finds something that makes him question his brother, he decides to go and find out the answers for himself and travels to Tokyo, taking Holland with him.
I loved Holland, she was a strong independent woman, who put love on the back burner to follow her dreams of being a nurse, Andrew however was stuck in a limbo of grief and hatred, followed by using emotional blackmail to get his own way and use people, unfortunately (or fortunately for him) Holland doesn’t take any of his sh*t, and gives him just as good back.
Once again Lauren Blakely manages to encapsulate the sights and feels of a place, i have never travelled to Tokyo, but her words made me feel like i was there, and i could close my eyes and picture everything perfectly.
🎧🎧 Outstanding narration by two of my favourites Joe Arden and Erin Mallon who were just fantastic together!
You could physically feel Andrew’s pain, and the performance given by Joe Arden on this one is amazing, he WAS Andrew in my head, and the fact that you could hear his voice cracking when he was talking about his dead brother made me tear up more than once.
Erin Mallon once again gives a brilliant performance and they both bounce off of each other seamlessly.
You may need Kleenex for this one, but it is sooo worth it, definitely save a credit and don’t miss out on this one!
*Many thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of this book, I would have purchased this anyway so this was an extra bonus 😘
