Part One
Broken #1
by Sarah Mäkelä

Goodreads blurb:  Life as Carmela knows it will be forever changed when she meets not one but two men who pull at her heart’s strings.

About the Author:  Sarah Mäkelä loves her fiction dark, magical, and passionate. She is a paranormal romance author, but she's written all over the romance spectrum with cyberpunk, sci-fi, fantasy, urban fantasy... even a sweet contemporary romance!

A life-long paranormal fan, she still sleeps with a night light. In her spare time, she reads sexy books, watches scary movies and Ghost Adventures, and plays computer games with her husband. When she gets the chance, she loves traveling the world too.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

The cover definitely made me notice it which is why I bought it :) 

This is the first part in this novella serial series.  If you are not sure what all the means, it is simple :)  Novella is the length and for this book about 60 pages.  Serial series are where one book is broken into parts or episodes like a TV series.  Only with a book serial you can miss any of the parts or you will be missing major content.  It must be read in order :)  This serial is not complete yet, so this means waiting in between parts and usually at the end of each part is a cliffhanger.  If you don’t like cliffhangers, the solution is simple, wait until the whole thing is complete and then read it :)  Personally I like not having to wait a whole year for the new book, so I don’t mind serials which are usually published monthly.  I am know sure on the rating of this book, but I’m thinking adults only with the violence and abuse.

This is my first time reading Sarah’s work though I know I do own several of her works as I’m a book addict…I just haven’t made time to read them all yet…pesky things like work, son, and life getting in my way ;)  I really enjoyed reading this part.  She has created a new world that I am still learning about, but it has shifters, vampires, and a blown up moon.

Carmela is a shifter, and she has to put up with quite a bit at home.  Her dad needs his butt kick, her mom is abused, and her cousin….well I’m not sure what to think of her yet but so far she needs to be slapped.  Derek is a sexy vampire, and he seems like he is a good guy so far….helping out.  Brendan only showed up at the end, so I don’t know enough yet to decide if I like him yet.  Carmela so far is unsure about both, so we will see if she chooses one or the other or who knows both :)  There is some action, and there is definitely some underhanded things going on, but I’m not sure exactly what yet.  I just know I liked it and I’m ready for part two :)

I recommend this book to people who like serials with shifters and vampires and that is unique.  Off to read the next part :)

Interested in reading???
