Review and Giveaway: A Broken Us by Amy Daw

Finley and Brody live in their own little bubble of “us.” Instead of, “I love you,” they say, “I love us.” It’s their own perfect endearment to each other. Finley’s quirky ways are the perfect contrast to Brody’s scandalously sexy passion.

But Finley’s picture-perfect world gets pummeled when she gets a hard dose of reality from her doctor that changes everything.

Crippled with the fear of Brody’s reaction, Finley does what she does best—she runs. She breaks his heart and leaves behind a life that is just too painful to live.

One international flight later, Finley’s best friend welcomes her with open arms in London and she is immersed in a new country with new experiences and eccentric roommates.

Nursing a broken heart, Finley grieves for the life she left behind and attempts to embrace the new one she is creating. When a cheeky Brit named Liam, a self proclaimed “fixer” catches her eye, she hopes it’s exactly what she needs to forget. But when Liam wants to help Finley unpack her bags for good, she realizes that her heart is still back home…with Brody.

Review by Alison East
So I didn't know what was going to happen in this story- but from the title, I kind of figured that something bad was going to happen from the beginning and it certainly did.

Finley gets a diagnosis from her doctor that changes her world and turns it upside down. Finley realizes that she will never be able to give Brody what she thinks they both badly want. Instead of Brody bolting, it's Fin who leaves.

Fin takes off to London to try to forget the love that they shared between them. Her friend Lesley and some others try their best to help her heal- especially someone named Liam. He thinks he can be just who she needs to get over Brody and move forward. Then after a change of heart- she realizes her past is not dead and she is supposed to be back home with Brody.

I loved the plot, it was well developed and it made me feel all the feelings in the books that I should. Upset, happy, angry- all the dang feels.

Fin's journey is up and down and full of topsy turvy twists, but she has to take the journey, as painful as it is, to figure out what she really wants, and who it is that she wants for her future. 
There is a little twist that I was not expecting. I loved the romance between Fin and Brody. I hate that Fin shattered what they had, but I think it was necessary in order for them to find their way back to each other. The characters are well developed and totally believable. I enjoyed the secondary characters and how they added to the main characters' story.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this romance from new author Amy Daws. And I can guarantee you, I will read the next book that she writes. This book captivated me from start to finish!
