- I first fell in love with this book by the cover. Working with your ex finance has got to be a nightmare right but when your feelings are getting lead astray what happens. This is a pure romance story. This is also a lovely easy read for those relaxed nights with a drink of wine. You related to Lexi on all sorts of levels throughout the story.View all my reviews
Broken by Love by MJ Masucci
I must say, I went into this with high hopes based off the synopsis and I feel a bit let down. I wanted a bit more depth with the characters I just couldn’t connect in a way I usually can, even in a small way.
I did enjoy reading and getting to know these characters, Lexi gets a new job only to have her ex be her new boss. When feelings start to resurface between these two, there’s a battle within for Lexi.
I will be going back and reading this again as I think the 2 books i read before this were deep deep romantic and sweet this just threw my reading brain off kilter.
I will be reading more from this author in the future as I did like the story overall.

What does her future look like? Find out what happens next in this must read. I can’t wait to read more from this Author.
Broken By Love by MJ Masucci is a story of a woman caught between her past and her present.
I was intrigued by the story from the moment I read about this book and knew it was one I had to try. I hadn’t read anything by this author before so didn’t know what to expect when I turned the first pages.
I did struggle to connect with the characters a little bit throughout this story. I couldn’t quite work out who I thought was best for her – if any of them – and it made it a little hard to engage with them. The story was pretty good though and had so redeeming qualities about it. Although there we aspects of it I found rushed I thought the author did ok overall good job on the story line. It certainly kept me turning the pages.
I would definitely give this book another go and I will definitely look into more work by this author.
Broken by Love (The Full Circle Series) is the first book I have read by M.J Masucci. When this book showed up on my recommended book feed, I admit I was more than a little intrigued. So I grabbed a copy and jumped right in.
It is a second chances romance, with drama, love, betrayal, angst, past history, forgiveness, and some push-pull. I have to be honest and say that I am a little disappointed, because I really couldn’t connect with the characters, even though I really wanted to. I definitely wanted to love this story, but I felt the writing was a little stilted and the flow of the story wasn’t as smooth as I had hoped for and some parts felt abrupt and/or strained. I really think the characters and storyline could use just a little more depth to really make an impact. But that is probably just me- so, I will revisit this book again in the future to see if I still feel the same way- or whether I was just having a ‘bad read day’ during this book.
As I said, I really wanted to love this book- but for me, it fell short- the characters frustrated me so badly, I wanted to smack their heads together. Some of the dialog didn’t feel realistic or believable, and even a little contrived for the situation. The characters personalities grated on me- and I really couldn’t find my groove with the storyline. Even though there is a bit of a twist to add some interest and drama to the story- it still didn’t grab me in the way I wished it had. But I will revisit later and reassess things then.
Thank you, M.J Masucci!

Alexa has just started a new job and is meeting with her new boss, Camden. These two not only know each other as Lexi and CJ, but they were once engaged. CJ is now married to someone else and Lexi is engaged to another man…so working together should be easy, right? However, when CJ realizes his mistake by getting married, and Lexi’s fiancé starts acting weird, things at the office (and away from the office) are not easy at all. Lexi is giving her fiancé the benefit of the doubt and working hard to work through their problems, but she refused to be anyone’s doormat again.
This story is filled with love and drama and felt like real-life. The situations the characters found themselves in felt so real that I was feeling their emotions right along with them. I laughed, cried, and found myself wanting Lexi to find happiness wherever that led her. I was immersed into the story from the first page and sat in the same spot until I got to the last page. The supporting characters in this story are amazing, and I am looking forward to the next book where one of them is featured. I will definitely be picking it up!
This was the first book I’ve read by this author and I am definitely looking forward to more! This is a great second chance love story that truly gets you involved in the lives of the characters and makes you feel like you are right there with them. You feel what they’re feeling. Empathize with them. Yell at them. I may or may not have called Lexi stupid once or twice! LOL!
Lexi was engaged to JC when she was young. He continually cheated on her and she continually put up with it. He eventually breaks off their engagement…the thought that she would have actually gone through with it is reason enough for all my yelling at her while reading this book! Now, years later Lexi is happily engaged to Noah and starting a new job, looking forward to a new beginning, when she finds out the JC is her new boss! Not only is he her new boss…but he’s still in love with her, realizing that giving her up was the worst mistake of his life. Does she reciprocate his feelings? What about Noah? Find out the answers by diving in to the pages of this stellar love story!
This book brings out all the feels! You just can’t help caring about these characters and getting totally involved in their lives. It’s sexy, smart, frustrating, and joyful all at once. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can’t wait for the next book in the series!

Her life is about to get complicated when she finds out her new boss is her ex. To even add more to the pot, her ex is still in love with her. You will have to read to find out what happens next with them, you don’t want to miss emotional roller coaster they take you on. This is a must read story, I highly recommend it.

5 out of 5 stars
The story Broken by Love (The Full Circle Series) by MJ Masucci is a New Adult romance book. It is a story that pulled me in from the start and didn’t let me go until I had finished the final page. I enjoyed reading about the character of Lexi Stanford. She is an intelligent, independent, beautiful woman who is engaged to her fiancé, Noah. Her life becomes more complicated when she finds out her new boss is her ex, JC. What will happen when secrets are revealed? How will Lexi deal with JC when she figures out he is still in love with her? There are betrayals and tensions are on the rise. What does the future hold for Lexi? Read this book to find out. This is a story that has heartbreaking moments. There are times when I was angry with what Lexi is going through and other times when I was misty-eyed. I grew to care about what happened to Lexi with each chapter that I read. I wanted her to find happiness. There are secondary characters that I enjoyed reading about as they support and help Lexi. There are steamy scenes in this story that will make the temperature in the room rise. It is a book that I would recommend reading.
