Review: Broken Course by Aly Martinez

Seven years ago, my life changed forever. One accident and the person I saw in the mirror no longer resembled the woman I used to be. I was lost and confused inside my own body. I felt alone and disconnected from the world, carrying the incredible weight of guilt and loss that wasn't even mine to harbor. Then fate led me to Leo James. He taught me that crazy could be perfectly normal and it shouldn't hurt to breathe. Don't get me wrong. Leo isn't perfect. He has his own cross to bear, and the truth is, that might be why I fell for him in the first place. But despite everything he does for me, learning to forgive myself is infinitely harder than overlooking the flaws of another. Now, the secrets and lies of our past have begun to dictate our future—threatening to ruin us before we get the chance to try. Perhaps we were cursed from the start. Or maybe, just maybe, the remnants of our fractured lives will fit together to form one whole, where love isn’t questioned and being happy is…well, easy. Can a second broken soul be enough to fill the voids of my own? Or will such scarred pasts prove too much for our love alone to overcome?

Broken Course by Aly Martinez

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Two secondary characters from previous books end up having the most profound book of them all with their emotional journey on their road to healing. When I went into this I figured it would be Sarah’s story as we all knew how broken she had been in the previous two books. But once this book got going I felt it was more Leo’s redemption and that was as well deserved as Sarah’s. These two characters couldn’t have been more broken and have pasts filled with so much heartache. Years ago they were on a certain path and that path got broken which in turn broke them. When these two find each other it sets them back on the right course to their much deserved happiness.

I loved that every couple/character from the Wrecked and Ruined series and Slate and Erica from Among the Echoes were in this book. All of those characters started on journey together that threw them off course and it just wouldn’t be fitting if they were all still together – all though not in the same way they were before – at the end of the journey.

For those that haven’t read this series it needs to be read in the following order – Changing Course, Stolen Course, Among the Echoes then Broken Course. It’s a very emotional ride you will take but its soo worth it because this final book in the series was the best and it has one the best epilogues that wraps up every character.
