Book review: Broken by Dean Murray

Author: Dean Murray
Title: Broken
Series: book 2
Genre: Urban fantasy
Purchase: Amazon

About the book:
Adri Paige is too busy dealing with the emotional fallout from losing half of her family to deal with boys. At least she thought so until the two most intriguing guys in her new school take an interest in her.
Both boys are gorgeous and blessed with obscene amounts of money. They should have the emotional depth of note cards, but instead display undercurrents she doesn't fully understand. Rumors the pair destroys peoples' livelihoods seem ludicrous until she gets caught in the crossfire and her family almost loses their home. She's increasingly unsure either boy is really human, and their rivalry is rapidly turning deadly.  
My Thoughts:
I loved it! Now that I have read both sides to the story I am really happy that I said yes to doing a review. I liked the story from Adriana´s perspective more than from Alec´s. I can´t wait until I get to start reading the sequel to this story. I have it here waiting for me.

In "Torn" you did not really understand Adri and why she did certain things but in "Broken" you really do. I really felt for her with the loss of half her family and I felt like i could really understand her in that perspective. She had a hard time dealing with her problems and her everyday life. She found a best friend in Alec´s sister who helps her without really knowing it. I really liked the story between Adri and both of the boys in this book =).
Adriana is so brave despite the horrible things she is put trough and she is extremely stubborn. 
I can´t really say much more without giving away spoilers for those who might not have read "Torn" so I will just finish here. I will of course give you a review of the sequel "Splintered" aswell so if you like this one, keep your eyes open!

Hi, Sandra. Thanks again for taking the time to review Broken. I'm glad you liked it and I'm anxious to see what you think of Splintered. I think we're at 33 days and counting until the release :)

I'll try to keep an eye on the comments for the next day or so in case someone stops by with a question.
