Hello friends! Today I have my book review of
Broken In: A Cowboy Reverse Harem Romance by Cassie Cole.
Trigger/Content Warnings: Parent Death, Suicide Mention, Hand/Grenade use, Sex scenes.
Too many secrets to go around.
With the monumental task of fixing up her family’s ranch to sell, Cindy doesn’t know how she’s going to manage by herself. So when she stumbles upon three brothers with ranch experience looking for work? It’s almost too good to be true.
With tattoos covering his forearms, the eldest brother Landon is calm and confident as he offers their services on a one week trial contract.
Quiet to the point of bashfulness, Daniel has the muscular build and experience of a cowboy… Yet for some mysterious reason refuses to ride a horse.
Chase, the cocky youngest brother, has a chip on his shoulder and something to prove—whether to Cindy or to her nosy neighbors harassing the cattle.
But as friendly and flirty as the brothers are, they have their own ulterior motive. And it requires that they avoid making any moves on Cindy until after their job is finished—a restraint easier said than done.
As the problems on the ranch spiral out of control, Cindy has to decide whether to cut her losses and run away—from the ranch and the three boys falling for her. Can she get her ranch back into working order in time, or will she suffer financial—and emotional—heartbreak?
BROKEN IN is a sexy, stand-alone reverse harem cowboy romance filled with humor, action, and mystery. It also contains sizzling hot MFMM menage sex, in single and multiple partner scenes. HEA guaranteed!
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
I was in the mood for reading a cowboy reverse harem story, and with Broken In I certainly got one.
There are four points of view within Broken In. The person we read the most from is actually Cindy, while the guys’ views are spread out.
Honestly, I loved reading from everyone’s point of view. Cindy, Landon, Daniel, and Chase kept the story from being dull and boring.
What I liked about Broken In was that every single character that we read from brought something interesting and new to the story. Yes, Landon, Daniel, and Chase are similar in the fact that their jobs are practically–if not totally, the same. Yet the guys’ characters are completely different from one another. Which truth be told, is a part of what kept the story so interesting.
Not that it wasn’t interesting, it is. There were just some parts of the story where I was becoming frustrated. An information…cluster?, I guess you could say, felt unnecessary. There were only a couple of scenes of information overload, so I ended up just skipping those parts. I didn’t want to get a total lack of interest in the story. I felt like if I had actually read those bits, I would have marked Broken In as Did Not Finish.
There were secrets that were kept from each other which at some points did sour the story. HOWEVER! I loooove the way that the story turned out. Happily Ever After’s always make me so very happy.
I found that Broken In was a quick read for me. The story was interesting, even if what seemed like a bigger portion of it was sex related. The sex scenes played quite the part as well.
Oof, I won’t say much in regards to this particular character that I’m talking about for a second, because spoilers, but I am so glad that a certain someone got what they deserved. Ha!
When I finished reading Broken In, I found that there was a bonus chapter. So I got to reading that, and I ended up adoring the additional bonus chapter.
All in all, Broken In is quite the entertaining read. I give Broken In, 3 stars.
Have you read Broken In? What did you think of it? Have you read anything by Cassie Cole?
Broken In is my first Cassie Cole read, and I’m interested in reading Cole’s other works sometime. I look forward to it actually!
Thank you for stopping by!
See you soon, and Happy Reading!
