Broken by CJ Lyons
Broken has a good concept, but it was quite flawed. Scarlet has a rare and untreatable heart condition, she thinks she will die literally of a broken heart. So, Scarlet chooses to attend a public high school - even thought she might not have that much time left. She's taunted there and teased by several classmates. This story also had bullying in it which I liked that it touched base on it, but it felt too short and the potential was wasted. I expected a lot more from this book, since I had heard quite a bit about it.  
Broken had a nice ending, but I disliked the weird love triangle they had in this book. The chemistry wasn't even there with one of the guys. The guy she should have been with, she wasn't with him so that's depressing. This is a perfectly good example of a great concept gone wrong. I think I'm the broken one after reading this book.









Master Over You by Ethan Winters & Gery's Duleys
Master Over You is not a book suitable for children and teens under the age of 18, so be warned.
Noah and Angeline are slave traders with haunting, yet similar pasts. I picked this book up because of the cover, it's catchy. Master Over You falls more on the dark romance side.. This was a really crazy book, I happened to like this much better than the overrated Fifty Shades series. I'm not a huge fan of alpha males in novels who want to dominate women though, it sounds too cliche and creepy. So it was a nice change to see the opposite happen here. I LOL'ed at that part.
This was a deep novel, and it takes Stockholm Syndrome to a whole novel.  I find SS fascinating to read about since I study psychology. As of right no dark novel or real life situation has changed my mind about it being "romantic" though. I did love reading about it in the YA read called Stolen which isn't about torture and rape. I like reading about it, but I don't agree that it's romantic. Did you guys like Beauty & The Beast? I loved it! There is SS there if you think about it. Overall, Master Over You was a nice read, and I liked it. It's something different from a lot of dark romance novels I've read in the past.
Disclosure: Review Copy of Master Over You was sent behalf of Xpresso Book Tours.
