Hart Broken (Cale & Mickey #1)Hart Broken by Annie Arcane
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hart Broken by Annie Arcane is a beautiful and emotional story. I read this book from start to finish in one go because I couldn’t put it down. Annie’s writing is creative and expressive and draws you in with these wonderful characters. She cleverly entwines the first person narrative with the third person narrative and with the angst and pain, the shyness and unsurety these characters feel makes for an explosive story.

The story revolves around Mickey Hart who is a wonderfully sweet yet damaged soul, which she hide well, who was not looking for love and Cale Windermere who is filled with self doubt but is one special man. After his accident he doesn’t see himself as a whole man. The characters have real struggles and flaws and things to overcome and you can feel their pain, their joys and their love but is love enough? Can they get over their issues to be with one another? Will they open up enough to let the other in? Is self preservation worth more than love?

I really enjoyed this read because of the characters that are beautifully written. I am a fan of Mickey and Cale and am waiting to read the next installment to the series and follow them on their wonderful journey, hopefully together. I also loved the teasing way and the love Cales family have for one another it brought more depth to the story. I encourage you to read the book and enjoy the heart touching emotional ride when you read this contemporary romance love story with a little twist.

Hart Broken (Cale & Mickey #1)Hart Broken by Annie Arcane
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hart Broken: A wounded hero Romance by Annie Arcane is a love story following the relationship of Cale and Mickey, showing the ups and downs of their love story.

Mickey is a strong independent woman but she finds herself waking up one day in a strange room, a strange bed and finding a rather handsome stranger the scary thing is she does not remember how she got there. As she slowly gets to know this man and she trusts he is not a serial killer, she is unprepared how to deal with the instant chemistry between the two of them. But will her past be too much for her to get over and deal with this alpha male.

Cale has always been a man of honour but there is one thing which is holding him back, he had an injury which has left him paralysed from the waist down. He has his demons from his past which also will impact on his future but from the first time he spotted Mickey he knew he had to have her as his own.

As the story continues you get to understand that these two characters have been hurt in the past and are reluctant to give their hearts over to be broken again, but as they get to know each other on a deeper level they are prepared to put their heart on the line. I loved the vulnerability of the characters although they have strong opinions to show this vulnerable side is refreshing.

This is the first book I have read by Annie Arcane and I enjoyed the style and fast pace of the story, I am looking forward to reading more books in this series and by this author.
