Publisher's Summary

Five years ago, Tuesday Eastwood's life collapsed and left her devastated. After an empty, nomadic existence, she's finally pieced her life back together in the small Oregon town of Hood River. Now Tuesday has everything sorted out. Just so long as men are kept for sex, and only sex....

Then she met him. Musician and rancher Ezra Hurley isn't the man of Tuesday's dreams. He's a verboten fantasy - a man tortured by past addictions whose dark charisma and long, lean body promise delicious carnality. But this craving goes far beyond chemistry. It's primal. It's insatiable. And it won't be satisfied until they're both consumed, body and soul....

    Story
    "enjoyed extremely more after chapter 13. thanks"

    Story picked up after chapter 13. mentioning racial difference should have been mentioned earlier. But conversations between the characters were enlightening. I wish the ending had an epilogue so could see how far they last. That the only reason I didn't give 5 stars.

    "Wow nice contemporary love story"

    Haven't listened to contemporary Romance is a while. Usually no substance, morals or too young for me. Unless it is someone like Robyn Carr or Debbie Macomber. This was just plain good nice storyline. One of the first stories with two people whom are just trying to over come those "hit you hard" life hurdles. It was also interracial which was nice to read and have it not be a main conflict but just a hint understanding. This was just the right amount of drama without being overly done. Also nice to have a "grown-up" thinking Heroine. I don't like whinny characters... This was just the right touch.

    Top 5


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the way the author dealt with the interracial relationship. She acknowledged that there are issues and dealt with them. The Hurley family did seem to good to be true but as an African American woman married to a Caucasian, I have met people as good as the Hurley's and some just like the man in the feed store. Overall, it's a very good story - pretty hot!


    What about Kate Turnbull’s performance did you like?

    Easy to listen too. Liked her voice.


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

    Hot Sex and a lot of it!


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for making this book available. I would not have known about this author or book had it not been for the book cover. The cover is what caught my attention.

    Story
    "Skip it!"

    I really struggled to finish this book. I couldn't get past the dialog, it seemed unrealistic and fake. The words in the person to person conversations just didn't seem like what real people would say. Well, not in the way people would say them. Also, the narrator wasn't that good. She didn't capture the characters.

    Didn't need those comments about Lucifer or sin to dark for this book. And words like, warlock.

    "Love, love loved it!"

    This is my favorite Hurley Brothers book. The intense chemistry between Ezra and Tuesday had me wrapped in their story from beginning to end. Thank you for the distraction. Great cover too.

    "Great book"

    Lauren has created a superb power couple in Ezra and Tuesday. I don't usually dig stories around racially diverse couples because of the often heavy hand in making the point about our society's unfortunate snail's pace at overcoming it to the detriment of the story line.

    Happily, this book made the point without sacrificing the love story and the family issues surrounding the central couple.

    The sex scenes "told" more than "showed" this time, which was a bit disappointing. And can we please let these couples clear the condom use earlier in the action. What a drag and a distraction. Overall, though, this was a very good "listen", even if narrator Kate created some pretty wimpy sounding male voices.

    "can't get enough"

    I absolutely loved it these stories. I wished there was more and it had to end, but please can we have another with couple updates.

    Story
    "More Hurley Brothers - Thank YOU Lauren Dane"
    Where does Broken Open rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the middle... that isn't bad, I have almost 1000 books in my Audible library and 300 or so on MP3-CD


    What did you like best about this story?

    How about 'What I liked least?' The heroine's name, Tuesday. Seriously, have authors run out of names? Tuesday *cringe*, Tuesday *cringe*, Tuesday *cringe*, Tuesday *cringe*


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really liked the ending scene. It there was closure for Ezra and Tuesday (*cringe*) but there was plenty of story left to tell...


    Any additional comments?

    It is so engrossing I listened until 3 or 4 am. The only reason I m glad I m done is so I can focus on other things! Prepare: once you start you can t stop.
