Broken (Broken Trilogy Book One) by J.L. Drake

My name is Savannah Miller.
My father is the mayor of New York. One day after my twenty-seventh birthday I was grabbed from behind. A cloth sack was quickly pulled over my head, and I was taken from everything I’d ever known.
I was beaten, starved, treated like an animal, and forced to live in a room with no windows. With no sense of time and no dignity left I finally gave up hope and made a promise to myself to end it all. Unfortunately, it was going to be a slow process.
Then one night an elite group of US Army soldiers came to my rescue. I was brought to a safe house and given two options:
One—Stay under their protection and follow their rules or...
Two—Leave and be guaranteed to be returned to the savages within a week. 
I chose option one.
As I work with a therapist and begin processing my hellish ordeal things slowly begin to surface. With the help of new friends and a potential new love I fight to get my life back and make choices that will forever alter my future.
This is my story…

My Review

Broken is the first book in J.L. Drakes romantic suspense trilogy~ Broken.  Telling the story of Savannah – Savi to those she holds dear – a brave woman struggling with demands of an enemy she doesn’t fully understand.  Rescued by an exclusive team of military professionals, made up of men who are sure to become a part of Savi’s new life as friends or possibly more.

 Told in third person from dual perspectives, this is a steady, page turning mystery thriller & romance in one.  Trust, survival, betrayal, friendship & love, shocking at times, this story keeps you guessing with twists & turns from the very start.  “Just because we can’t see danger doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist,”  Romance with a gradual build that ramps up quickly between these characters who have instant soul deep connection.  “From the moment his eyes met hers he couldn’t shake the protective feeling he had about her.”  Short but steamy love scenes, “caring, kind, respectful, understanding, yummy.”.  Be prepared for an ending that will have you gasping, leaving you with more questions than answers by the time your done – good thing there’s more to come!
The story starts with instant intrigue that leaves you ready for more – I love that.  I enjoyed the chemistry between the main characters even with the bit of a ‘insta-love’ vibe.  I love the strong bonds these strangers who become friends & ultimately a heartfelt protective family.  Ultimately, this is a really great suspense, with an awesome cliffhanger & so much more – I can’t wait for book two!

"What could be worse than being broken? Shattered."
