Review: The Broken by Ker Dukey

The Broken
Ker Dukey

When River’s already broken life shattered further on her sixteenth birthday, she was forced to be with the wrong best friend of her brothers. She was meant for Sammy but circumstance and black mail forced her into a relationship with Danny, a troubled, abusive partner. Leaving the only boy she ever loved to flee. Now four years later he has returned. When her feelings and missing parts of herself that left with him return also, loyalty, restraint and love will be tested. Can she find a way to leave the threatening clutches of Danny, to finally be saved by her childhood love? Or will Danny’s hold on her tighten when more life shattering events consume their already troubled lives?

When Sammy returns home, after four years of being away from the girl that broke his heart, he’s not prepared for all his old feelings to force their way straight back into his heart. Questions that were left unasked when he left begin to plague him, when the sudden relationship between River and Danny all those years ago seems all the more confusing now. Secrets, mistrust and Danny’s possessive behavior sends up red flags and Sammy begins doubting himself for leaving in the first place.

When the spark between Sammy and River finally ignites it will leave explosive consequences for everyone.


 Book was sent to us for honest review!

This book is a dark, angst emotional read. Not your everyday lovey dovey story. There are so many twist and turns that your asking yourself questions! Within the.first few.minutes of reading, I was in tears. A wreck! I couldn't believe what I was reading. I was like "you've got to be kidding me?!"

You have River, who was in love with her best friends brother, Sammy. She's always had a crush on him. Then something happens and she's with Danny. She is broken down and hates it. Danny, is her second.choice, although it's not really a choice. He is a possessive and manipulative guy. I wanted to rough him up a few times in my head while I was reading.

Finally, you have Sammy, who I tried to hate because he left, but it just wasn't happening! She is a sweetheart, and I was rooting for him and shouting out loud on certain parts. There is A lot going on. River still feels for Sammy and can feel it thru her bones. And Danny has an idea of it. He hates Sammy and vice versa.

There are twist and turns that had my jaw dropping completely!! I found myself in tears, yet again. I had to stop reading to control my emotions!
As a debut novel, I think Ker was on point, the entire time! I think she did a phenomenal job! If the ratings were higher then 5 stars she would get it because she definitely deserves it!
5 out of 5 stars!
