Stormi's Review: Like Broken China by J.D. Thompson
APC PUBLISHER: J.D. Thompson RELEASED: November 21, 2017 GENRE: CONTEMPORARY, ROMANCE LENGTH: 252 pages FORMAT: EBOOK
Is love enough to repair the pieces of a shattered life?
This is the question plaguing Courtney Cook’s mind as she packs what feels like her whole existence into a 20ft moving van. When she encountered Matt for the first time in a coffee shop ten years prior, she was immediately transfixed. Dark, adventurous and wildly untamed, Matt was everything Courtney didn’t know she wanted. One night of uninhibited abandon is all it took for her to be completely enthralled by the boy without limits. Now with two children, a sky-high mortgage and a marriage crippled by addiction, Courtney finds her world is riddled with cracks that no amount of love can repair.
Powerful and provoking with humor woven throughout the raw sting of heartbreak, Like Broken China offers an honest take on the decisions two people make and the aftermath that can destroy an entire decade because of them. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Courtney is a 30-year-old woman on the verge of divorce. She looks around at her life as she packs herself up in boxes. She always had the plan, the perfect plan, but as life shows her, life is never perfect and it usually doesn't go as planned. I have been a reviewer for a while now and so I have learned to appreciate a good book that is also real. Yes, this book is fiction, but the story was real. It told a story that I am sure many women face daily all around the world. I was hooked from the first page. This book is about marriage and life and how these two things are never easy and never perfect. It covers issues such as addiction and also choices that can make or break a couple. I guess if you are a female and you are married, then you can relate in some way to this story. This book was written very well. It had a major grab factor for me. As soon as I picked it up, I hated putting it down. The story is easy to relate too, the characters are easy to love, and from beginning to end it was just a great story. I absolutely loved the ending. Overall, this was a powerful novel about having the strength to walk away and start new. It was awesome.
