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.

    Story
    "Wild ride"

    This book starts with a bang and ends with a bang. So many mysteries and secrets uncovered. Emilia travels to Arizona, after her mother's death, in search of her father. Once she arrives in Phoenix, she meets Alex who takes her in after she receives less than a warm welcome from her dad. From here there is action and excitement, romance and heat.

    Rebecca Shea did an amazing job writing a story that is so full of movement, you can't seem to turn it off. This is my second time listening to this audio and it won't be my last.

    Vikas Adam was amazing as both Alex and Sam. The emotion pours through his voice and the suffering and hurt as well as the longing and desire seep from his voice. Erin Mallon is a favorite of mine and she doesn't disappoint as the voice of Emilia.

    Story
    "Secrets, Lies, and Layers of Emotion"
    If you could sum up Broken By Lies in three words, what would they be?

    Deep, Remarkable, and Addictive.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Broken By Lies?

    This story had so many memorable moments. From the way Alex opens up to Emilia to the secrets they keep from one another to the lies they feed each other. The twists and unexpected turns this book takes will keep you completely enthralled and begging for more!


    Have you listened to any of Vikas Adam and Erin Mallon ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Vikas Adam is a new narrator for me and I have to be honest... I'm HOOKED!!!
    He was amazing!! I literally searched Audible looking for all the other books he's narrated, I loved him that much!!
    And Erin Mallon, this woman is superb! If you've never listened to her narrate a book then you are doing yourself a disservice. She has so much emotion and feeling in her voice. The way she tells a story is like no other. She is by far one of my favorite narrators. I read any book I can find that she's narrated which is actually how I discovered Bound By Lies.
    Vikas and Erin sounded so good together!! I could listen to them all day. In fact, I did!! :-)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire story left an impact. I can't even put into words how much I loved this book.


    Any additional comments?

    My review:


    Oh my word!! I absolutely love Rebecca Shea's writing. Her books have depth. Her words have soul and purpose. Her characters are raw and have been dealt lives that leave them spent making for an intoxicating read!!
    Broken By Lies was consuming, highly addictive, and it brought about a storm of emotions that lite my heart on fire!!!
    From the very first page until the last word of the book, I was enamored with Emilia's story.
    The author has a way of transporting your mind to a place where you feel like you're right next to the characters, living, breathing, and experiencing every moment of every scene as it comes to fruition.
    This book gave me ALL THE FEELS!!
    Alex was a bad guy to the rest of the world but he had a heart of gold that made me want to just hold him and comfort the boy he had hiding inside.
    I felt for all the characters and sympathized as they were dealt such depleated hands.
    I appreciated the connection between all of the characters and I loved how this book played out.
    This book has suspense and excitement. There's an underlying rush that you'll feel as you get closer to the end and the lies begin to unfold.
    Be warned, this book ends in a cliffhanger but it's totally worth it! And lucky for you, the next book in the series has already released!!!
    Highly recommend!!!

    "Angst-filled read! I was on the edge of my seat!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it kept me captivated and I had to find out what happened next!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Broken By Lies?

    When Emilia realized Alex truly loved her and would sacrifice everything for her.


    Which character – as performed by Vikas Adam and Erin Mallon – was your favorite?

    I loved Alex. He hated himself, but could not see the good man he truly was.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The lies that break you.

    I couldn't stop reading, and when I wasn't reading I was listening to the audio. What a twist at the end. I could see how Amelia could be drawn to Alex. For someone so troubled he had a kind heart. I need to know what happens next!
