Kit Foster thought a week in the woods would be the perfect way to recover from the family scandal that shattered her world. No reporters, no gossip and no drama. Then a helicopter dumps an injured man in her path.
Mick Harris is having a bad day. It was bad enough that he botched an op, but then he awakes beaten and left for dead in the middle of a forest. He is lucky to be alive, but now he is at the mercy of Kit- the only person who knows the route home.
During the time it takes to hike back to civilization, Kit and Mick become friends and explore their growing attraction. While the way out is hampered by bad memories and an assassin, they manage to grow close enough to attempt a real relationship.
However, that bliss is short-lived when Mick’s job again threatens Kit’s life and destroys their happiness. Can a second chance bring them back together?
I was sent Broken Bits by the author in exchange for an honest review. Going into this book I was a little dubious, Kit seemed to be a little immature for my taste and I thought I was going to end up hating the book because of her. By the end, I didn’t love her but I could deal. The story enticed me and I was hooked all the way through. I will say if you are looking for something with super complex plotlines and deep characters, look somewhere else. Apart from Kit and Mick all the other characters seemed to be added extras. Which was okay apart from when we got to the ‘baddie’. I don’t know but I didn’t really understand what was going on in that aspect, but the suspense and thrilling writing made up for it.
My favourite character has to be Malachi, which is saying a lot because he doesn’t seem to be in it an awful lot. I loved his drive and the way he was constantly taking care of Kit when there was no one else. It was the beginnings of a beautiful friendship which I would have loved to explore more.
My least favourite character was Kit without a doubt. I found her extremely annoying throughout and at the best of times she was mildly irritating. I didn’t feel any emotion towards her and I mostly wanted her to be quiet. She definitely had her redeeming moments, and I can’t write the entire book off because of her.
I wish that there had been less sex and more character development, I know it’s part of a series, but I would have loved to have known more about the Broken Bits cast. There is some characters with massive potential, so I hope they are explored in the later books.
I would definitely recommend Broken Bits. It was a fun to read book, even with all the horrible stuff that goes on from cover to cover. I loved it. I couldn’t put it down, so it gets my seal of approval!

Have characters ever put you off the story? Their annoying mannerisms, or the way they talk, or the things they do?
