Publisher's Summary

I had no idea how much I would love Alex the day he walked into my life. He changed everything. The way I breathed. The way I thought. The way I loved. He brought me back to life. He gave me strength and a safe place to land. And then he broke me.

Finding Emilia was a chance to do something good for once in my life. I wanted to change. She believed I was her savior. I ached to be. She found her way into my heart and claimed it as her safe place. I should be telling her the truth about me.... Instead I break her with lies.

    "I Enjoyed This Book"
    Any additional comments?

    Its worth a listen and a credit. The narration was really good I am an Erin Malon fan so loved it. My only criticism is that the sex scenes were not long or detailed enough. It was low "his manhood was long thick and hard Yada Yada Yada she had four mind blowing big O's" Could have been better but the story was intriguing.

    "PERFECT.... SIMPLY WONDERFULLY PERFECT"

    It's so so hard to put down in words just how much I loved this book.... it has it all - an epic romance, suspense, conflict, intrigue, danger, sex, secrets, lies, heartbreak, awesome characters both loveable and sinister, wtf I never saw that coming twists and a jaw dropping holy sh*t of a cliffhanger ending. I don't want to give anything away about the storyline that may dampen your enjoyment in any way so I cannot say more other than a broken heroine who'll overlook everything for one man, a hero torn by duty love and guilt and the dangerous word of a criminal Cartel that surrounds and eventually consumes them both. So all I can do is share my thoughts:-

    Alex and Amelia's beautiful and yet tragic love story, and the plot threads that slowly interlaced and then unravelled with one another, had me absolutely clinging onto every word.... waiting, hoping and praying that Alex can find a way out of the deadly conflict that's cruelly tormenting him. And, no matter how late into the night it crept, I was there visualizing every wonderful, terrible and shocking Chapter as they all effortlessly played out in my mind. Because this talented Author made sure I was gripped and then the brilliant narration had me emotionally transfixed and I knew sleep, for me, simply wasn't an option. When it comes to a great listen willpower and me aren't at all acquainted so I just laid there savouring and devouring every word until the final shocking Chapter had delivered its bitter blow. But, even after the dreaded words of "to be continued" filtered through my brain, I was tempted to go straight to book 2 which I've happily got waiting in the wings however I decided to call it a dawn and finally get some sleep. And, now that a new day has arrived, I'm humming with joy, pleasure, anticipation and trepidation as I eagerly await my next Bound and Broken fix.

    Worth a credit? Take a guess?....... yup you're right - it's one million times YES.
    But I've got a peeve.... I'm a bit fed up with using two and sometimes three or more credits on books that are split like this one when they could and should have (IMO) just been one book, one listen and one credit.

    "GREAT BOOK!!!"

    It's been a while since I made it all the way thru a book. I usually get bored & switch but I didn't on this one:)
    Basically, she falls in love w/ the head of a family drug cartel. His dad's in prison so he's stuck running the more gruesome side of the show (instead of just the $ & investments.)
    There's also another hot, government man in the picture that's actively pursuing her on a daily basis, as well. Both men are head over heels for her.

    Definitely worth a credit in my humble opinion! :)

    Story
    "Accolades!!! FIVE HUGE STARS!"

    This story has it all. Lust, love, redemption, commitment, devotion.

    I am going to try hard to give a brief synopsis without spoilers!

    Emilia finds herself alone in the world. Her mother's death has left her devastated and alone She sets out to seek the only to the only living relative she has knowledge of, her biological father who left at the news of the pregnancy. Rejected a second time by her father Emilia has found herself rejected, lost, alone and broke. She meets Alex and her world will never be the same again.

    Alex and Emilia's story is unconventional. He is drawn to her from his first encounter her. He is determined to be her savior ... perhaps seeking redemption for himself on some level and the steamy romance begins.

    Shea tells the tale of a love story that has is swoon worthy. Alex lives a dangerous life that is not his choosing as part of drug cartel. He is determined to save Emilia without exposing her to his "real" life. As they become closer he begins to open up about his life ....but the lies mount up and she begins to doubt if she can trust him. Enter the very hot cop that is determined to bring an end to the cartel. He is intent on saving Emilia and she finds herself with two very different men trying to love and protect her..... and she will be forced to choose.

    The dual narration works well.... great performances by both.

    Credit and sale worthy!!! You will not regret this purchase.

    "How very dissappointing"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm very annoyed at the "fan girl" media of this story & performance. I'm unsure if Miss Shea got her family to continuously post wonderful rave about the story and the performance but you suckered me in and the only thing I'm grateful for is the opportunity to stop others making the same costly mistake. Don't buy, don't read don't bother. This story lacks character development, story line and creditability not to mention predictability or someone had had the gall to describe it as " a cliff hanger ending" give me a break or better yet give me my money back ##### what trash!!!!!


    What was most disappointing about Rebecca Shea’s story?

    This story lacks character development, story line and creditability not to mention predictability or someone had had the gall to describe it as " a cliff hanger ending"


    Would you be willing to try another one of Vikas Adam and Erin Mallon ’s performances?

    may be underwater


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Broken By Lies?

    Probably just the first chapter and most of the last chapter - oh wait the few in between could probably go as well -- yeh I'm not happy.


    Any additional comments?

    Why what's the point when people don't take the responsibility to write reviews seriously - I'm more disappointed with my fellow listeners then the author - she was just trying to create entertainment its the glowing reviews written that really make me angry.

    "The worst book ever"
    What disappointed you about Broken By Lies?

    I have been an audible customer for many years. This is the first review I have written. I like steamy romances and thought this book sounded good. The story was totally unbelievable but the worst part was the non-ending. It just stopped-so you would buy the next book! This is the last time I purchase a book by this author. Save yourself a frustated several hours and pass on this ridiculous story.

    Story
    "Well done crime suspense and romance!"

    Wow, this is great. Dirt poor and recovering from her mother's unexpected and uncharacteristic death, Emilia leaves her small town Illinois trailer park for Arizona to find/meet her Father. I love how she is written! Refreshingly strong, and anything but helpless despite her poor circumstance. Em has a pride and strength that makes her identifiable, and doesn't play her as a victim. The male lead, Alex, meets her randomly in passing at her Phoenix motel, immediately drawn to her naiveté. He takes her in after learning of her poor circumstance and failed family connection, feeling immediately protective of her. Alex is a bright business school graduate, raised in wealth, who is forced to run his massive family drug smuggling/illegal immigration operation after his kingpin father is jailed. He hates it, and attempts to instill some humanity in he cold-blooded criminal operation despite the circumstance. The author weaves the complication of the crime story with the build of Em and Alex' relationship expertly, and the alternating narratives performed by these two great readers bring the story to life nicely. Fair warning, it is a cliffie, continued in Book 2. Well worth it!

    "HAD POTENTIAL BUT VERY DISAPPOINTED"
    What disappointed you about Broken By Lies?

    I am someone who considers their purchases very wisely and sadly I regretted this one. I read the reviews and listened to the preview several times before I made the purchase. No where did I hear or read anything related to his character being based on a cartel operative.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Left out the cartel affiliation, I am not a fan.


    What didn’t you like about Vikas Adam and Erin Mallon ’s performance?

    I enjoyed them both.
