Not So Broken (Love Grows Series Book 1) by Renee Regent – Review by Robin Rankin

Not So Broken (Love Grows Series, # 1)Not So Broken by Renee Regent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not so Broken by Renee Regent is the first book in the Love Grows series. I enjoyed this book, thought the story was well written and the characters were great, especially the grumpy neighbor Marvil. He seemed to make me smile no matter the situation.

Gibson is a good guy who has had some bad stuff happen to him like losing his wife. He finds a new life after running away from the pain and guilt. I really liked him a lot, he was kind hearted and willing to do the right thing always.

Sacha seemed a little rough around the edges for me. I get she got hurt bad by her Ex but she seemed a little angier and more bitter than she should be after the time that past

There were a few things I wish had been given more attention. To me it felt like a couple of loose ends that could have been tied up, especially the surprise Sacha stumbled upon.

All of that being said it was a good book to read a intend to keep up with this series.

Not So Broken was such a great book and shows that their most definitely can be love after tremendous heartbreak! Gibson is actually a billionaire known as John G Colebank III of heir to the Colebank fortune. He is currently hiding out in Tilly, Georgia working as a handyman. No one knows who he really is. He has endured the worst kind of heartbreak and cannot go back to his normal life.
Sasha is visiting Tilly trying to gain clients. While she is visiting the town her eyes land on a gorgeous looking man she names mountain man. Sasha has also been through a lot. After trying to get pregnant for years which was unsuccessful, her husband tells her one day he’s leaving and his girlfriend is pregnant. Sasha is the top salesperson in her company and is working towards adopting a child of her own.

The night Gib and Sasha meet each other in a bar, they talk and dance the night away while having many drinks. After a hot one night stand, things seem to turn south the next morning. While Gib and Sasha can’t get the other out of their heads, things happen and it causes them to see each other again.
I really fell in love with Gibs character. He really is such a nice guy and I was rooting for him the entire book. I do t want to give to much away but, this is a great read! One you won’t want to miss out on.

Gibson is a man in hiding. After suffering an enormous loss, Gibson moves to a quiet town, hours away from his normal life. Sacha is an alcohol rep, always traveling around the area for her next sale. After a random chance encounter, these two peoples’ lives will be changed forever. I absolutely loved this story! I loved how both characters are lost in their own ways and that Renee Regent showed that a second chance at life can be right around the corner, where you least expect it. Sacha was not my favorite character at first, she is so stubborn and guarded but her characters evolution was a great one to read. Both characters have been through a lot and needed to come a long way to get what they want from life. This really was a lovely story to read and I can’t wait to read more from Renee Regent and the Love Grows Series! I give “Not So Broken” five stars!!

Not So Broken is book in the Love Grows Series by Renee Regent. I have not read anything by this author and the thought of delving into this story was both fascinating and exciting.

Sacha and Gibson are a delightful couple that I really enjoyed getting to know. I will never get sick of these types of stories and the way my heart fills and my stomach flutters nervously when things get a little tense. When the chemistry between the couple is so tangible, it has a life of its own. The charisma, the challenges, the personalities, the dramas, the intensity. All powerful emotions, all provided in this story. I loved the story, the characters, the way the story was presented. It was a fantastic read. 5 stars.

Not so Broken was a great 5 star read and book one in the Love Grows Series.

We start with Gibson who is living in Tilly, GA. He has been living like a recluse for the last few months grieving and trying to move forward with his life. When his father calls and gives him a deadline on coming back home, he has to decide if he will ever be ready to return.

Sacha went to Tilly to sell some alcohol to the local establishments. She is also nursing a broken heart and isn’t ready for anything serious. She ends up meeting Gibson while out at one of the local bars, and they hit it off. They end up having a very steamy one night stand.

Maybe it was the scotch, or maybe I had been pent up too long. I found myself hoping for much more than a dance with this woman tonight.

When Sasha returns to Tilly she has some shocking news for Gib. Sasha was in shock with the news herself, it was something she never thought could happen. Will the news finally bring Gib home? Will it bring him and Sasha together as a couple?

There is so much more to this great read. Gib and Sasha tested my patience at times, especially Sasha. My emotions were all over the place. Renee Regent pulled me right in with her writing. I wouldn’t mind seeing more from Gib and Sasha and I look forward to reading more from this series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

NOT SO BROKEN is the first book in a new series. It has a little bit of everything that makes it a “classic” romance. There are best friends, an alpha male, life altering events, angst, desire, a bit of humor, a lot of misunderstanding and so much more.

This is a story that evolves over almost a year and at times it moves very quickly and other times it’s as if the story has slowed the pace to hold onto the thread with secondary characters.

This story lays a terrific foundation for the future stories in the series. There is a very clear beginning, middle and end and was a satisfying read.

I look forward to reading more of the series.

By Renee Regent
5 Stars

Who doesn’t love a story with a troubled hero and a feisty heroine?? Not So Broken by Renee Regent delivers this in spades with the first book in her Love Grows Series. A first-time reader of this author for me but I was pleased with a well-written story, great characters, making this book hard to put down.

Gibson has known tragedy. The guilt and remorse he feels have left him reeling and feeling unworthy of anybody’s trust and convinced that he will be alone forever. Yet an unexpected connection is made with the feisty Sacha and now it is his turn to convince her to give their budding romance a chance.

Sacha has pulled herself up from her bootstraps and forged a new life. Set on living her life the way she wants and achieving the goals she has set for herself. But fate has thrown a curveball at her and she is left wondering if she is ready for these new changes. She was convinced nothing would alter her new life path but will this unexpected relationship with Gibson change her thinking?

Ms. Regent pulls the reader in with these engaging characters. You can’t help but have deep feels for Gibson and cheer Sacha on her independence and strength. The chemistry and deep connection these two forge throughout the book only enhances the story. I truly enjoyed getting to know these characters and the story was fresh and enjoyable. I look forward to more books by Ms. Regent and highly recommend this book for your TBR list.

Not So Broken is the many firsts for me. The first is new series, by a new author to me, and a new favorite for sure! Never having read anything by Renee Regent before this I was going in blind simply with the enticement of the blurb and the eye catching cover. I am super excited that there will be more to come in this series and that I now have a new author to stalk! In Not So Broken we get the story of Gibson and Sacha. Both of them have extremely painful and dark pasts that haunt them to this day. Neither of them expected to have anything but the mundane lives they had settled for before they meet that night in Tilly Georgia. Will they be able to lay their pasts behind them to have a better future together? Or will they be forever broken?

Not So Broken by Renee Regent is the first book on the Love Grows series. This book will carry you along on an amazing storyline that will be sure to tug at the heart strings.
Having read a few thrillers lately I loved the fact that I knew what to expect from a book like this. It made it so easy to lose myself in the story for an afternoon and think of nothing but what was happening on the pages in front of me.
The book had a great emotional element to it as well which really draws you in and keeps you reading. This was a great way to start a new series and I am looking forward to book 2.
