Blurb:
In this second book in "New York Times" and "USA Today" bestselling author Cora Carmack s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with "All Lined Up," a young woman discovers that you can t only fight for what you believe in sometimes you have to fight for what you love.

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.

Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians you name it, she s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he s arrogant and infuriating, she can t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He s met girls like her before fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn t think he s broken, and he definitely doesn t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about: his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.

Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.
Reese's Review:
Oh my goodness Silas is mine mine mine! Seriously I have a mad crush on this beautiful man.

Oh where to start, honestly I was not excited for this book because after All Lined Up I didn’t like Silas at all. When I saw he was getting his own book I cringed a little bit. Boy howdy was I wrong to doubt Cora Carmack and her amazing Rusk series.

Silas began getting into trouble on his team and when he goes out to a bar to me Levi and gets into a fight he ends up behind bars where he meets Dylan. Dylan ends up in jail for fighting for homeless shelters. When he helps her out of prison and they head to a party together their chemistry gets them going hot and heavy until Dylan pulls back. Now Silas is suspended from the team for a week and he needs Dylan to help him stay out of trouble and to get him on track. What he didn’t expect was to fall for her. Dylan has been trying to be perfect since she was placed into foster care. After her boyfriend broke up with her Dylan knows that being perfect doesn’t make people stay or make them love you. Now she’s spending time with Silas and becoming the person she’s always wanted to be.

Ah I LOVED THIS BOOK. So much awesome and romance and swoon. I just love how Cora Carmack makes amazingly realistic characters and storylines.

All Silas wants is to be a football player. He left behind a life he would rather forget and he struggles a lot with being worthy and with being enough. I loved how his character struggled and became such an amazing character. He’s loyal and sweet and I just loved his bad boyness.

Dylan has to be my favorite female character so far in this series. I definitely related to her the most out of everyone. After being in foster care and constantly trying to be perfect she is tired of being who everyone wants her to be. She is such a caring character and I loved how she also grew into a strong independent woman willing to stand up for what and who she believed in.

All Broke Down was a fantastic story. I love the banter and wittiness to the characters so much. I swear these are the kinds of books that have me not reading in public anymore. Plus the swoony parts had me needing a fan because wowza Silas and Dylan together was just hot.

So if you haven’t started this series yet that’s okay since I didn’t ruin anything, but you really should read this series, it’s awesome I promise.
