Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway: Broken (Broken #1) by Kelly Elliott


Layton Morris and his brother Mike grew up not knowing what it would be like to live in a normal home. With no running water or electricity in their home, no parents around to protect them, they quickly learned how to survive and depend only on each other.

When a tragic accident takes Mike away from Layton, and the only other person that he ever let into his heart walked away from him, leaving his heart shattered, Layton focuses all of his time and energy into the ranch he and his brother dreamed of. He makes a vow to himself to never let love in again. The last thing Layton needed or wanted was more heartache.

Whitley Reynolds grew up in a privileged home in upstate New York. When she landed the star football player in high school no one was surprised, not even Whitley. She dreamed of a life with Roger living in New York City and happily followed him there.

One fateful day things go to far. Whitley makes a promise to herself and finds the courage to do the one thing she thought she’d never be able to do.

Fleeing with her best friend Courtney, Whitley was determined to put her past behind her and start a new life in the small town of Llano, Texas, where no one would ever find out about her past.

5 star review!

I thought that Kelly’s Wanted series was fabulous, and now the Broken series has been added into that same category. I was astounded and excited that we get a whole new series with new characters that are also cowboys! ;)

Whitley was an inspiring character that suffered at the hands of an abusive partner for way too long. When she finally gets out, I was so excited to embark on a new life with her and her best friend, Courtney. As she moves from the city to the country, she is determined to start her career while maintaining her independence and freedom. It’s not long until a cowboy sweeps her off her feet.

Layton is the ultimate book boyfriend. He has suffered so much loss in his life, but the moment Whitley walks in, she instantly pulls him out of the darkness. Layton was a complete gentleman and I was in awe of his attentiveness towards Whitley.

I wasn’t expecting Kelly to top the Wanted series but her style of writing has progressed increasingly. I made the bad decision of starting this book at night and I couldn’t put it down. Needless to say, I was extremely tired the next day after reading till 6am. But I don’t regret it at all because the intensity and excitement throughout the novel just drew me in and I can’t wait to read Broken Dreams. I cried over those last few pages in the novel and I just need to know that Courtney and Reed make it!


About the Author:

Kelly Elliott

Really I’m just a wife to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a nack for making me laugh almost daily and supports my crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason… he claims it’s because he loves me… I’ll just go with that one!

I’m also a mom to an amazing daughter who constantly is asking me to make her something to eat while she has her fingers moving like mad on her cell phone sending out what I’m sure is another very important text message!

Oh…and I like to sit down and write in my spare time!

I live in the Texas hill country and one of my favorite things to do is go for hikes around our property with my second favorite man, Gus….my chocolate lab and my sweet girl Rose, our golden retriever. When I’m not outside helping the hubby haul brush or move rocks or what ever fun chore he has in store for me that day, you will find me inside reading, writing or watching HGTV and soaking in a nice hot bubble bath…..yeah that last one I just made up but it sure does sound nice!!!
