Life shattered my bones, now it wants to break my heart.
Jaymerson Holloway thought all her grief and pain were behind her. Unfortunately, life has other ideas.
Where stories don’t end happily.
Where hearts shattered into pieces and love slips through your fingers.
Leaving everything behind to follow her dreams, Jaymerson travels to Italy, where she learns to stand on her own, move on with her life, and open her heart to another. But nothing prepares her for seeing Hunter’s life explode over the TV screen and watching his success, which comes with lots of women wanting a piece of The Haze. Crueler is the agony of seeing him fall in love with another. But that isn’t even the worst of it.
When she returns home and their paths cross, they are no longer the same people. The old animosity they once felt for each other flares the ties between them. Especially when more secrets and truths are uncovered.
Like moths to flames, their undeniable chemistry continues to pull them to each other and tangle their lives together, even though it will only end in heartbreak and sorrow.
Don’t miss the second installment of the Blinded Love Series, the final story of Jaymerson and Hunter, but don’t despair. Stevie is up next in the third book, Twisted Love.

an amazing read
I don’t even know where to begin as this book sucked me right in, wrung me out, and put me into a book hanger. This book is raw, gritty, entertaining, and an emotional rollercoaster full of love, heartache, tragedy, and hope. Broken Love is book 2 in this author’s The Blinded Love series and you will need to read Shattered Love first.
This book picks up at the very end of Jaymerson’s senior year in high school and does span a couple of years which I think was very fitting for the storyline. I don’t always like to read books where I cry and feel like my heart is getting ripped out, but the author crafts such a beautiful story about two people who have such an intense love for each other that they are magnets with a gravitational pull towards each other. They survived tragedy in book 1 and still their path towards their HEA is a long, winding road. Seriously, just read the book. It is amazing.
Told entirely from Jayme’s POV, you go through the gamete of emotions. She is still that strong, likable heroine who has been through so much, yet continues to persevere. I love how the author made you really feel all of her emotions. Hunter is a survivor, but he has that vulnerability that isn’t always obvious and he seems to carry an awful lot of weight on his shoulders and it just keeps getting heavier and heavier. There were times that I wanted to shake him, but I couldn’t help but love him. My heart broke multiple times for these two.
I really enjoyed how many of the secondary characters from Shattered Love are also in this book - especially with Stevie, Chris, and Doug playing a more prominent role as they are the type of people that I would love to be friends with and have in my corner. I love how the author further developed these characters and I am really looking forward to Stevie’s book as she is one of the most interesting characters that I have ever encountered. This book does not end in a cliffhanger and it does have a HEA. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It moved at a good pace, had some great twists and turns, and the author skillfully puts you through all the feels. I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review.
