Publisher's Summary

I lost her once. I won’t lose her again.

After my brother’s death, I was drowning.
Delilah was my life raft.
We were opposites, the outspoken art student and the brooding athlete. She was passionate where I was apathetic, bright where I was dark, soft where I was hard.
For two years, we had everything. The kind of love that only exists in fairy tales.
Then she left and took my heart with her.
I tried to heal. To throw myself into medical school. To forget her.
I thought I did.
Until today.
Those blue eyes, that sweet smile, the soft curves--that's my Delilah.
As soon as I hear her laugh, I know.
She's what’s missing from my life.
I have three days to get her back.
God, I hope I'm as charming as I used to be.

From the author: Broken is a standalone second chance romance full of heat, heart, and heartbreak. Come see why readers say "Crystal Kaswell is the master of writing sharp, wounded characters who keep you on your toes."

A must listen!

It is different from most of Crystal’s stories but does not disappoint, quite the opposite actually. She dives deep into a not so discussed topic that I think should be discussed more and does an amazing job with it. Trent and Delilah’s story is so real and honest. It sucks you in wondering what caused her to leave and then you fall hard when you find out and just deepens your love for the characters. It’s much different from the fall hard rock stars and tattoo artist stories, which I love. It’s much more deep and you get so much more story line with the bouncing back and forth from past to present. A lot of authors can not transition well with that but Crystal obviously knows what she is doing there.

Superb!!!

Kai and Wen are seriously amazing! their voices really make you feel the intensity of Del and Rents's relationship! They bring Crystal's words to life and make you want more! Delilah and Trent's story is one of amazing courage, true love that withstands all, and so many trial and tribulations! Crystal held Del's secret over our heads the whole story leaving me constantly guessing what it could be that she was hiding. The sensitive matter of this story was handled and written in the most beautiful manner I have ever read! I hope we hear more from the Stone family in the future!!!

Opposites Outspoken Art Student & Brooding Athlete

Broken is a second chance romance that doesn't follow the usual cookie cutter romance. This novel digs deep into a topic not openly talked about. Trent and Delilah's romance is something real and believable as it reflects real life. The writing style captures the essence of the narrative. I love that each chapter begins with a title & section along with who's POV. I like the set up and how it plays out with going back and forth between the past and the present. This creates a well crafted narative that flows through smoothly and at the right pace & tone. Characters are brainy, marred, and opposites that hold each other together. Supporting character's play a crucial role as their actions reflect how these two deal with their own demons. Deliah holds a the secret of why she left that keeps you captivated and craving the answer to her secret as its unguessable. Little hints are are played our but you won't figure it out. Deliah & Trent will leave you temptuious. I absolutely loved the epilogue as it crop up in a away that polishes off a perfect HEA. I hope more books are created about the supporting character's.

The narration told in dual pov with the best narators. Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross narrates a beautiful story showcasing a flawlessly performance. These two together are a perfect pair as everything from the tone, pace, smoothness, to the angst & chemistry is nailed in a way that delivers a story that resembles real life.

A must listen

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I absolutely love all of Crystals books and the way that Kai and Wen Narrate them. Those two are easy to listen to and are for sure my top choice when it comes to listening to someone narrate a book. The story itself is also so amazing. Trent and Deliah story was so emotional and was a roller coaster ride that will pull you in and have you hoping for them to get the happiness they deserve. This is a must listen to story because it is well written and has amazing narration.

Another amazing story from Crystal Kaswell!!

Disclaimer: I received a ARC of this story from the author for my honest review.

Everything about this story was amazing. Kai and Wen did another amazing job narrating the story, bringing to life Crystal's characters. Her stories are so relatable, and the way she works in the different emotions makes you connect with her characters even more. Listening to her story helped me escape from my current situations, which is hard to do by most authors, but Crystal never fails me. She writes her stories so vividly that it is like you are the fly on the wall, watching the story unravel right in front of you. Do yourself a favor and make sure you read/listen to her work. You will not regret it.

Such a beautiful story.

Crystal Kaswell has done it again. Broken is a beautiful second chances story. I enjoyed it from the beginning and found that I could not put it down. I have really enjoyed all of Crystal's books that I have read, but I must say that listening to Broken narrated by Wen and Kai was fabulous. Their voices are perfect!

A wonderful listen!

Crystal Kaswell has delivered a wonderful story around a topic that is not usually found in romance books. This is one that will touch you from beginning to end with the struggles that Delilah continues to deal with on a daily basis. And then add in Trent, her sexy ex-boyfriend that she reconnects with while visiting family. All of this makes for a beautiful story with all of the emotions. Finally, there are the narrators that add an extra layer to the story that brings it to life.

Takes you on an emotional journey

Delilah and Trent are in a two year relationship when Delilah abruptly cuts ties with just a note. Two years pass without contact, leaving Trent wondering where things went wrong.Now, back in town for her sister's wedding, Trent realizes he only has three days to try and fix their past mistakes and figure out what really happened. Their sexual chemistry was absolute magic and there was so much emotion in their backstory that you really needed the past and present to fully get in their mindset.

The narrators for this entire series are so on point, the dual POV in separate voices really sets the tone and makes you feel what the characters are going through. There was some really heavy themes throughout and I loved every minute of their rollercoaster relationship and couldn't put this down. I recieved an advance copy of this audio book and this is my honest review.

worth your time

Well, I'm an emotional mess. So worth it Trent and Delilah are both so powerfully 'broken' (Aptly named) and yet so amazing together. <I say as I sit at my kids school finishing the book, balling like an idiot> Long read and so worth your time. I very happily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book

Just... Wow.

I'm speechless. Truly speechless. This has everything. I laughed, I cried, I wanted Delilah and Trent to figure out their s**t sooooo badly! In the best possible way, I was on edge. As the story unfolded.... wowzas! Crystal has such an amazing writing style that sucks you in, draws emotions from you and spins you on your axis. Just when you think you have it all figured out.... BAM! She hits you with a curve ball that you don't see coming. I had all the feels listening to this and I'm not ashamed to admit I cried. There was a point in the story where I found myself clutching at my chest for dear life!

Crystal never shys from sensitive subjects and I'm thankful for that. She arroaches them with care, dignity, openness and realism to name a few.

Honestly, get ready for an amazing rollacoaster of a story that will leave you a little bit different to how you were before.
