Blog Tour: All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

In this second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack’s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with All Lined Up, a young woman discovers that you can’t only fight for what you believe in . . . sometimes you have to fight for what you love

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.

Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians—you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and infuriating, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before—fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.

Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.

4 Star Review by Allison East

So I was a bad girl and I didn't read the first in this series- but that's ok!! I got the feeling that Silas was kind of an ass in the first book- so starting off this book; I secretly knew I was going to either hate him or fall hopelessly in love with him.

All Broke Down's heroine is Dylan. She hasn't had it easy in the past.But looking at her right now, you would never know all the things that she has handled on her own. She loves a lost cause, who doesn't? But the source of her latest lost cause has landed her in jail, in a cell, beside none other than Silas.

Silas might as well be another lost cause for Dylan. Silas' loves are women and football. And he ends up going to jail and putting his football career on the line for some dumb anger issues he has. I really connected with Silas- and he is so damn full of himself. But in this story his arrogance is portrayed in a way that wasn't really annoying, but actually pretty attractive. And super sexy.

I loved both of the characters and the way the characters matured over the course of the story. I loved how Dylan was strong; even though she had a less than stellar upbringing, and way too many expectations. She was a little shy- but was gonna stand up for herself, and didn't let Silas walk all over her. I loved how "n your face"Silas was, and how they complemented each other so well.

The plot and flow of the story are what stood out for me. It moved at a  great pace. At times though, I felt like I wanted to know more, and to know it sooner, but at the same time I also
wanted to take the time to enjoy myself and finish it when I was ready. I just wasn't ready for it to be over.

If you haven't read this series, start with the first book-All Lined up  which I am going to start right now) and then get ready for book this one. Looking forward to more of this series from
Cora Carmack!
