I was sixteen when he came to our house. Landon Jones, a boy with nothing, from nowhere. He had cinnamon hair and blue eyes—light blue, just like mine. When we went out as a family with my foster brother, people asked if Landon was my twin. He wasn’t. That year, we found out how much he wasn’t. When my parents caught us, they threw Landon out like trash.

Now I’m twenty-nine, a soon-to-be surgeon, like my mom and dad. I know residency is going to kick my ass, but I had no idea that it would rip my heart out, too. Not until I see him—Dr. Jones.

FRACTURED LOVE is definitely a SERIES FAVORITE for me! I was HOOKED from the synopsis, but that’s usually the case with an author like Ella James. She hooks me in so quickly and with so few words, and then she transports me to something truly beautiful and heartbreaking. And that prologue?! My heart was in my throat for those few pages alone. I think I knew then, that Evie and Landon’s story was going to be something special…something tough…something beautiful. 

“It’s wrong – but it feels so damn right.”

Leave it to Ms. James to make it so damn easy to fall in love with her characters. Even though I adored both Evie and Landon, it was Evie who took this one home for me. I was envious of how she was as a teenager, and then as a woman. She is so genuine…so special. She just has a really big heart, and I think that is what spoke to Landon from the very beginning. 

I really enjoyed the way this book was set up. You had the gut wrenching prologue, then there was Part One which introduced us to the younger versions of Evie and Landon, and showcased how their young hearts started to fall for one another. Then there was Part Two, fast forwarding us 10 years, and we get to witness a young love reignite and grow into something deep, yet so very fragile. Told in both POV’s, we get a real sense of what both characters are going through and how they are dealing with having each other back in their lives. 

Evie and Landon go through SO MUCH in this book…some expected…some NOT so expected. This is a true testimate to how deep their love has truly grown. FRACTURED LOVE made my belief in fate and in the idea of soul mates, so much stronger. I rooted for these two the whole way through, and that is what you will have to do as a reader for this book. This may hit home for some of you. This isn’t an easy happily ever after. You will have to work for it, power through, and trust that the happily ever after you WILL get out of Evie and Landon’s story, will be so worth the heartache that you felt throughout the book. 

FRACTURED LOVE was a GREAT love story, a BEAUTIFUL romance, and a CAPTIVATING journey. I recommend Ella James’ work as a whole, but this story right here, is an absolute MUST!
