Irreparably Broken by K.J. Bell ~Blog Tour and Giveaway

Appearances are not always reality…

That’s what twenty-year old Tori discovers when she moves in with her best friend, Liv for the summer. Liv’s older brother Brady is everything Tori knows is wrong for her, yet he invokes emotions deep in her soul that she’s never felt with anyone else. When the two eventually succumb to their feelings, Tori realizes Brady is not the same confident guy she’s secretly loved for years. Tori desperately wants Brady to confide in her, but he refuses to talk about the secrets that have drastically changed his life.

Turning to the one person that always makes her laugh, she begins spending time with the younger brother, Tug. The two grow closer and Tori wonders if her feelings for Tug run deeper than the “just buddies” status they’ve always shared. As she begins to explore her feelings, the conflict between brothers, she’d hoped to avoid erupts. She has to choose.

When Brady finally reveals his secrets, Tori makes her decision; one that may leave them all Irreparably Broken.
She shoves me in the arm. "You're impossible, Brady."
"And you're beautiful when you blush," I say impulsively.
Her lashes flutter, and I hear the air leave her lungs. Her cheeks are the softest pink, glowing, and she holds her chest with her hand. "You think I'm beautiful, Brady?"
Her question is sincere. She doesn't understand what she means to me. I haven't told her, but I've tried my damnedest to show her.
I pinch a lock of her hair in my fingers and then let it fall. "The most beautiful girl I've ever know." Her smile broadens, and I melt into the sofa a little. "It's not just your looks, though. You have a beautiful heart, too, Sunshine." There's a shift in the air, and I'm afraid the moment may get too intimate, even physical. It can't happen.

I flipping loved this book. What a mix of emotions. It was very well put together to draw you in and keep you hanging at the edge.

Sometimes the events in our lives leave us with a shattered heart and irreparably broken.

Tori was trying to pick up the pieces after having her heart broken. With the help of her best friend, Liv, she decides maybe its time to move on. That is until Liv's older brother, Brady, shows up and stirs old feelings in Tori. Feelings of anger, rage, frustration, hatred, but if she is being honest with her self it's more like lust, like and maybe love. Tori Blames Brady for the fail of her past relationship.

Brady has been trying to run from the feelings he has towards Tori. Feelings that have been around for many years. But he is not in a good place emotionally or mentally. He is going through things that he can not talk about to ANYONE. His pull towards Tori is almost too magmatic to walk away from.

"Christ, look, I'm toxic, like fucking poison, nothing instant, though-- I'm something slow and painful, and you don't need that in your life."

But he knows he has to. For her sake.

"Prince Charming is out there somewhere, ready to give her the fairy tale she deserves. As much as I want her, she is better off without me in her life. She's better off with the fairy tale."

But sometimes you have to say fuck the fairy tale. Even if you know the consequences could be catastrophic. Because the magnetic pull is just too strong.

"Sunshine, you and Jake had sex, but trust me when I tell you, tonight is going to be your first time." His voice is husky and raw and he plants kisses on my neck between words. "The first time you know what it feels like for someone to own your body. The first time a real man makes loved to you until scream so loud the heavens hear you. And the first time you will understand what you mean to me."

But will their pull be enough to overcome the mystery, deceit, secrets, and guilt that consume Brady?

I really enjoyed Tori. She strong and not weak like most female characters in other books. She was able to think through her decisions. She was funny and had a very crappy memory that I could totally relate to. I'm always the one thinking "shit, what was his name?"

But the best part of the story was NO CLIFFHANGER!!! Yay! I've been reading soooo many stories with cliffhangers that it was nice to have the story of the MC's end.
