Ava Moore was settling into her new life in Austin,Texas. She could almost be tempted to say it was perfect.
Perfect downtown apartment.
Perfect job as a fashion designer.
All of her dreams were coming true with the world at her fingertips.
That was until Ryder Montgomery appeared in her life. A chain of events lands Ava in the middle of his family’s Montana cattle ranch where she not only finds love, but a mysterious connection to Ryder’s sister when she stumbles upon her diary.
Will Ava have to give up the dreams she was building back in Texas to follow her heart? Or will she find dreams and a new life in Montana?
Broken Love is book 4 in the Broken series.
Wrapping her arm with mine, my mother and I headed through the house and to the back. “Now, Ava, try to keep your very outspoken thoughts to yourself.”
My mouth fell open as I let out a gasp. “Oh my God. What do you think I’m going to do? Offend the little old consultant men, and then they won’t want to work for us?”
“Yes. That’s exactly what I’m afraid of.”
Liza bumped my shoulder as she rushed past me. “Don’t worry, Court, when she sees them she’ll be too busy wiping the drool from her mouth to even talk.”
I rolled my eyes and took off after Liza as she yelped and ran through the kitchen with me hot on her trail.
“This is not the first impression I’m talking about, Ava Moore!” my mother called out as I followed Liza out onto the back porch. Liza immediately took a right turn and I didn’t realize how fast I was going. Trying to come to a stop, I hit the stairs and ran down them only to run right into the back of someone, causing their drink to go everywhere.
“Shit!” I shouted as my head throbbed from slamming into what felt like a brick wall. As I put my fingers up to my temple and closed my eyes, I prayed the hangover would just go away.
I know that voice.
Peeking one eye open, the other one quickly followed as I gasped and said, “Ryder?”
I quickly scanned around only to find everyone staring at both of us, and I couldn’t help but notice the stunned expression on my father’s face. “You know my daughter, Ryder?”
The smile that spread across Ryder’s face spoke volumes.
“Yes, sir, I do.”
I could feel all eyes on me as I let out a nervous chuckle. “Well, I mean we’re just acquaintances.”
Ryder raised his eyebrows as the other extremely hot guy standing next to him coughed and looked at Ryder.
“No, I mean we’re more than that.” Shaking my head and then moaning from the sheer pain, I held up my hands and said, “No! I mean, we’re just friends. New friends. Like I ran into him on the street and knocked all his paperwork out of his hands and then ran into him again—”
Oh Jesus, I’m digging myself into a hole.
“We ran into each other again yesterday when I was attending a meeting at a restaurant in Austin.”
The other guy coughed again and glared at Ryder.
My father walked up and kissed me on the cheek as he looked back at Ryder and said, “What a small world.”
It appeared Ryder had to force himself to pull his eyes off of me and as he looked at my father and nodded. “Indeed it is.”

~ 5 Making Dreams Come True Stars ~
Wow!!! I really didn’t know what this book was going to be about going into it, I just knew that if Kelly Elliott wrote it I had to read it. I was completely sucked into this story and so happy I read it 🙂
Kelly has done it again….She has created a Hero that is so swoontastic that I have fallen head over heels for him. No matter if she is giving us a cowboy, a nascar driver or a man from the historical past, you can’t help but fall in love with Kelly’s Heroes!!!
Broken Love is the 4th book in her Broken Series. I absolutely LOVED the direction this book took. I didn’t see it coming. As with every other book of Kelly’s she delivered an amazing love story, but I will warn some readers, if you aren’t a fan of insta-love, then this probably isn’t the book for you. The love story is taken at a fairly quick speed. I of course loved it, but I know there are some that won’t like it. Aside from the love story, Kelly also gave us an intriguing storyline that had a hint of mystery to it. It’s hard to explain without spoiling it for you, so I will just say, that it had me totally sucked in and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. This book was filled with a bunch of secrets, that were fascinating when they all came out.
In this book we follow the journey of Ava (Reed & Courtney’s daughter from Broken Dreams, Book #2 also Walker’s sister from Broken Promises, Book #3) and Ryder. We met Ava in the previous book, but we get to know more about her in this book. Ava has just found out her fiance is in love with someone else and proceeds to dump her. Nursing a broken heart and not paying attention to where she is going, she literally bumps into Ryder on the street. There is an instant attraction, but go their separate ways, until fate steps in and their paths cross again. From here we follow them on their journey to a HEA. Their road isn’t always a smooth one, what would this be if Kelly didn’t give us a couple characters we loved to hate (Vanessa) but I was extremely happy with how this story ended…in more ways than one. Like I said I loved the direction this story took, it was really different from her other books.
I enjoyed catching up with all the other couples in this series. It was great seeing, Dayton and Whitley, Reed and Courtney, Walker and Liza and Jase. I am looking forward to reading Jase’s story in Loving You, (A Love Wanted in Texas #6) which will wrap up both the Broken and A Love Wanted in Texas Series. Although it will be bittersweet once I am done reading Jase’s story because that means an end to all of these wonderful characters 🙁 I guess that just means I will have to re-read all the books in the future 🙂
So if you are a fan of Kelly Elliott’s, you don’t want to miss this book. I think it might just be my favorite of the Broken Series books.
Kelly Elliott is married to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a knack for making her laugh almost daily and supports her crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason…he claims it’s because he loves her!
She’s also a mom to an amazing daughter who is constantly asking for something to eat while her fingers move like mad on her cell phone sending out what is sure to be another very important text message.
In her spare time she loves to sit in her small corner overlooking the Texas hill country and write.
One of her favorite things to do is go for hikes around her property with Gus….her chocolate lab and the other man in her life, and Rose, her golden retriever. When Kelly is not outside helping the hubby haul brush, move rocks or whatever fun chore he has in store for her that day, you’ll find her inside reading, writing or watching HGTV.
