Review: Broken Road by Addison Kline

Broken Road (Breaking Black Book 2)


Addison Kline


It is often said that time heals all wounds. The words are spoken like a promise... A vow. These words are said to people who have been beaten down to their lowest state. To the poor souls who have nothing left to lose. Whispered into the ear of a grieving daughter, told with a shrug to a man who has nothing left to live for.

These are dangerous people.

The down-trodden. The grieving. The ones who love more people dead than alive.

The words should never be uttered. Not to the ones who have no solid ground on which to stand upon, no rail in which to clasp. The white-knuckled moments of life have come to be expected rather than feared.

"Time heals all wounds."

The words are an insult. A slap in the face... and around here, they'll get you hurt. For Averi McClain and her husband Colt, there were few deeper insults.

In the wake of Black Horse's death, a war has erupted. The Seventy Devils are scattered and on alert, gnawing at the bit for the go-ahead to strike. They would not hesitate to spill the blood of anyone who stood in their way of recompense. They knew they would need to act fast if they wanted to come out on top. Colt was not the kind of guy that you slept on. He'd stop at nothing to protect his family and he was lethal whether he was heavily armed or going toe to toe, bare knuckled beat-down style. Colt did have Black Horse's blood coursing through his veins, after all. But then, so did Jimmy, and he is ready to show everyone that the apple didn't fall far from the tree... in fact, they appear to have formed on the same poisoned branch.

As leader of the Devils, Jimmy had seventy miscreants to do his bidding - and three goals in which he needed to achieve:

1. Avenge Black Horse
2. Kill Colt McClain and Randy Ford
3. Take Averi for his own

Jimmy has another thing coming if he thinks victory is easily won. Will Colt and Averi's broken road end in tragedy? Or will they be the ones to banish the devils straight to hell? When the demons of the past rise up, can Colt and Randy face them fearless and determined? Whatever happens, don't expect Colt and Randy to stand alone. Buckle up. The broken road makes for one hell of a ride


My 5 star review

I got the pleasure of reading this book while it was being written. It was awesome because I got to re-read the book every time I received a new chapter. Thank you Ms. Kline, for wanting me to read your work!!

Averi McClain is still a feisty, I take no shit from anyone woman. She is married to Colt and pregnant with their first child. This couple has been through so much that could tear most apart and amazingly enough they are still standing by each other’s side. I think of these two as my power book couple, because they are just that.

Addison Kline then decided to throw more characters into this story and I am so glad she did. I actually emailed her and told her that I am in love with Averi’s brothers Randy and Tim. I will always love Colt, but well, he is married now and I am no home wrecker. LOL

Now I love Averi and Colt, but what got all of my attention were Cheyenne and Randy. They were high school sweethearts and then BOOM! …. Nothing. I felt so bad for Cheyenne in this book. I wanted to slap Randy and make him pick up his damn phone. Making that woman call hundreds of times before getting a hold of you is nonsense and YES… people really do that too. I am one of them! Hey, when you love and need that person you don’t give up. Now that I feel is love.

Now there are a lot of things going on in this book, but I promise you will love it all. You will want to jump up and scream and whoop on some of them, but overall you will love this book. Addison Kline, I loved the first book but, my god, woman you nailed this second book. Now I am ready to start reading the third. *Hint, Hint*
