A Life Less Broken by Margaret McHeyzer - #SALEBLITZ, #GIVEAWAY #BOOKREVIEW

Title: A Life Less Broken
Author: Margaret McHeyzer
 Release Date: May 8, 2014

On a day like any other, Allyn Sommers went off to work, not knowing that her life was about to be irrevocably and horrifically altered.

Three years later, Allyn is still a prisoner in her own home held captive by harrowing fear. Broken and damaged, Allyn seeks help from someone that fate brought her.

Dr. Dominic Shriver is a psychiatrist who’s drawn to difficult cases. He must push past his own personal battles to help Allyn fight her monsters and nightmares.

Is Dr. Shriver the answer to her healing?

Can Allyn overcome the broken?

Contains distressing content. Only suitable for 18+. Standalone.

While I read a lot of dark romance books that's not what this was.  This was darker than almost anything I've read and is definitely not for everyone.  Allyn is completely shattered.  Her life as she knew it, was brutally taken away from her three years ago.  She can't cope in the real world.  She's more broken than any character I've read about before.

Then she sees a TV show and learns about a psychiatrist who helps with trauma patients.  As broken as she is, she finds the courage to make the call for help. Dr. Dominic Shriver turns out to be her savior.  He helps Allyn see past the scars and trauma and to realize that she really can lead a full life.  He's much older than Allyn, and doctor/patient lines are blurred, but it's worth it.  He's amazing and helps Allyn realizes that she, too, is amazing.  

This was a very tough book to read.  About 3/4 of the way through the book it gets even tougher, when Allyn is forced to confront her past.  I won't go into detail, but Dominic is perfect with her.  Helping her cope and helping her recover.  His loyalty is unquestionable.  

I'm not sure this is the kind of book I could read everyday (it's much too emotional), but I truly loved it and think Margaret McHeyzer did a great job.  I give A Life Less Broken 4 1/2 STARS!

ONLY 99c


**Bound by custom or unique by choice.**

There's something about the written word that's pure magic.

Possibly it's the fact that there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering that they're able to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

Until next time
