Moving onto Fractured Love, the third book in the Off-Limits Romance series by Ella James. I should add these are standalones although sometimes the characters do interact across books its not essential to read the others. Fractured Love doesn’t really feature any of the other characters that I can think of from The Boy Next Door or Crown Jewels.
Out of the three books in this series so far, Fractured Love is my favourite. There was something about this book of love, heartache, growing and missed chances. I do love books that take you back to the past where it all began and this book spent a considerable amount of time in the past where Landon and Evie met. I’ve never been a huge fan of doctor/hospital romances, all the technical stuff goes over my head. Strangely at times this book is VERY technical which shows Ella (Author) really did her homework. But it didn’t spoil my reading time at all. In fact I couldn’t have seen Evie and Landon go into any other professions.
Evie was a breath of fresh air both in the past and the present. At first I thought she was going to be a ‘goodie’ and ‘innocent’. But as the book went on I found she actually had a sassy personality and was quite funny too. I loved how she kept things from us throughout the book (It really wasn’t that hard to work out though) and how she owned the things she had done even though they still played on her. Landon was perfect. Yes, I loved him. The fact you had a set idea he was a bad boy, but really he wasn’t. I loved how smart he was but how his personality mimicked Evie’s. You could tell they were perfect together regardless of their situation.
What really worked for me with this book, compared to the others in the series was the ending. Ella does like to make things perfect in the Off-Limits romance books and give us rainbows and unicorns. But with Fractured Love it was more of a ‘just’ and ‘right’ ending. Things did work out well, lots of the ‘i’s were dotted so to speak and what not. But not everything was perfect. That last chapter from Landon especially the last page really hit home for me.
Over all Fractured Love gets a huge thumbs up and 4 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and could have easily finished it in one sitting if I had stayed up till 1am (Hubby isn’t really impressed when I do that though). If you love a new adult romance with a beautiful young love story and some heartache along the way, then I would highly recommend this book. The whole series so far has been good, so read the others too. This was a kindle unlimited gem, so free to those who subscribe.
