Hello,

Broken Love is a dark romance series composed of 5 books (adult content and sensitive themes +18)

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00037]

I have a love-hate relationship with this book..The thing that did  bother me is this story took place with the characters in high school. The content was very adult and based on the violence and the amount of power Kieran has, I feel that it would have been better if the characters are a little older (couple of years or so). As well as the bullying and forcing someone into something..not sure how to feel about that.

The first book in the series; Fear Me is told mostly from Lake’s POV

It opens up to Lake (one of the main characters) not being so welcoming to her senior high school year. That of course is because of her tormentor (of 10 freaking years) Keiran Masters‘ release from juvenile. For ten years, Keiran was bullying and hating her (for unknown reasons that you’ll find out later).

“I don’t believe in Fairy-tales and Prince Charming.

I believe in fear.

He taught me how to be afraid.

We first met on a playground during a wonderful summer day. It was the first time he hurt me and it wasn’t the last. For ten years he’s been my tormentor and I’ve been his forbidden. But then he went away and yet I was still afraid.

Now he’s back and wants more than just my tears. You see…he thinks I sent him away so now he wants revenge…and he knows just how to get it.”

We go back in time to their first meeting as children, then as the story developes, we learn the reason why he’s torturing Lake and what was the cause of sending him away. The story follows them in present as Kieran returns; He hated Lake so much and he demanded her fear. I frankly think he did so because of his fear of her and what she could do to him; more precisely, what she could make him feel. Heading toward, the story shifts and there appears to be a mystery to be solved.

Keiran is a very complex character. Lake is the object of his unhealthy obsession. He’s hateful, dominant, possessive, a bully and relentless.

Lake, the victimized innocent girl that endures Keiran’s cruel taunts without making any attempt to defend herself. I was left very frustrated with how weak she was, letting him do whatever he wanted. Why did she not fight back and why was she scared? I think she has a masochistic hunger for the pain.

The Book ends with a set of shocker (surpriiiiiiiiiiise) that will make you want to read the 2nd book “Fear You” as soon as you can.

Happy reading!
