Kit Foster thought a week in the woods would be the perfect way to recover from the family scandal that shattered her world. No reporters, no gossip and no drama. Then a helicopter dumps an injured man in her path.
Mick Harris is having a bad day. It was bad enough that he botched an op, but then he awakes beaten and left for dead in the middle of a forest. He is lucky to be alive, but now he is at the mercy of Kit- the only person who knows the route home.
During the time it takes to hike back to civilization, Kit and Mick become friends and explore their growing attraction. While the way out is hampered by bad memories and an assassin, they manage to grow close enough to attempt a real relationship.
However, that bliss is short-lived when Mick’s job again threatens Kit’s life and destroys their happiness. Can a second chance bring them back together?
Broken Bits is an addictive tale that pulled me into its world and kept the hold till the wee hours of the morning.
It broke the mold with the traditional romance novel perfection and gave a real relationship with insecurities, concerns, questions and awkward moments. And I liked it. I liked how the conversations were not always smooth, how everything wasn't always perfect, how the characters were with fails and fault, with scars and wounds that were not always visible.
Both Kit and Mick were complex characters, charismatic, and easy to like and relate to. The wounds in their souls, in their very being, touched my heart. I felt for them, cared for them, and got that needed emotional connection with them. There were sass and fight in them, willingness to go to the extreme if needed, yet there was hope for the better days to come, deep emotions, feelings that were palpable.
There's more to the story than just the complex relationship. The suspense comes in waves and when needed the danger and fear were real and tangible. The DAG Team was introduced, all interesting and fascinating characters with nuances that intrigued me.
But mostly the book focus on the development of the relationship between Kit and Mick. There are events that change everything, events that took me by surprise and I wasn't prepared for them even though the blurb warns about the possibility of the rocky road they have if wanting to make it happen between them.
I really enjoyed the story, and I believe this is going to be an attractive series to be followed. The Broken Bits was entertaining and delightful at times, heartbreaking and tense at other times, with fear and danger constantly just around the corner
