I was absolutely blown away by this book. It was so different from what I was expecting. I went into this book expecting a gritty, raw story, but Xander and Paige’s story was beyond gritty, beyond raw.
On the outside, it seems that Paige had the perfect life. Loving parents who she has a fantastic relationship with, a best friend who totally gets her, is hilarious and is the yin to her yang. But there are always scars that you cannot see.
Xander is the perfect bad boy who is working hard to pull himself away from his past. He is fiercely protective of those he cares about. He has a strong innate sense to protect Paige at any cost and not let anyone harm her.
This story was filled with twists and turns, many I never saw coming. I found myself looking for any pocket of time in my day to sneak in a chapter and stayed up way beyond sensible to finish the book. I could not go to sleep without knowing if Xander and Paige were going to be ok.
I absolutely love BT Urruella’s style of writing. It is not overly wordy, but you really get a sense of the scene he is trying to portray. I laughed, cried, sighed and even gasped on more than one occasion while reading. This is one of those stories that will stay with you for a while after reading.
As this is the first book in the Broken Outlaw series, I will be waiting on pins and needles fro the next story to come out.
