Courtney Will always dreamed of finding her Prince Charming and living happily ever after, like in the fairy tales she read as a child. Her dreams were shattered one fateful night when her prince turned out to be her worst nightmare. Burying herself in her job as an editor, Courtney tried to forget her past, and she lost hope of ever finding true love. Reed Moore's past filled his world with guilt and anger, and then a mistake in college deepened these feelings. Fearing he will one day repeat his father's mistakes with the woman he loves, Reed has vowed to never give his heart to anyone . Reed and Courtney have each spent years building walls to guard their hearts, so when their feelings for one another explode into something unexpected, they argue and throw hurtful words at each other in hopes of avoiding the truth. Will Reed end up being the Prince Charming Courtney has dreamed of her entire life? Is Courtney the woman who will help Reed move past the guilt and anger, so he can embrace love? Can their broken dreams become their happily ever after?

I'm super excited that Courtney got her own book and I must say I love Reed's name, it cracked me up every time I read his name.  Again this author surprised me with Courtney's back story and I didn't see it coming.  I knew something was up, but I wasn't sure what though.  The authors writing style is one that I can't get enough of and it's so easy to read and relaxing.

Broken Dreams is a great contemporary romance that  I couldn't put down.  Just like the first book in this series, I had to know what was going to happen next.  I will say that I yelled at my Kindle a few times while reading this one.  I called them idiots a few times, I couldn't help it though, there are just those characters that I want to slap through my Kindle.  But to me that's what makes this book so incredible. It invokes that type of emotion.

This author has a way with words, a way that I only wish I had.  I can't wait to read more books in this series and by this author. All in all Broken Dreams didn't disappoint at all, it actually surprised me more than anything.  Don't you just love when a book can do that? I know I do. 

Oh I must say something about this cover as well, real quick, this cover is beautiful and part of the reason I picked up this book.  (Other than me wanting to know more about Courtney.)  I mean being pressed up against a tree that way and wow.  Love it!

I bet you already know what I'm going to give this one...
