THE BROKEN ONE by Ruth Cardello - Release Blast

In New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello’s sexy and emotional romance, a billionaire dares to invest in the riskiest proposition of his life: a second chance at love.

Single mom Heather Ellis would do anything for her adopted daughter, Ava. Even post an online reward for anyone who found the girl’s lost stuffed animal. Who’d have guessed it’d be returned by a drop-dead-sexy man with such sadness in his eyes that she had to reach out to him? To Ava, he’s a hero. To Heather, he’s a fantasy that puts at risk the happy life she’s made for herself.

It’s been five years since billionaire developer Sebastian Romano lost his wife and unborn child in a tragic accident. Now he’s all business. No room for emotion. Until he stumbles across that damn stuffed wolf and the beautiful single mother looking for it. Is he ready to give love a second chance?

But there’s more to Sebastian, his family, and his past than Heather knows. More than even Sebastian knows. Will the life they’re building together be challenged when the truth is finally revealed?

My Review:
Oh my goodness so many feels. I greatly adored this story. I haven't read much from Ruth Cardello if anything, but after reading The Broken One she will definitely be one of those authors who I am anxiously watching the release of.

The Broken One wasn't anything I expected. It seemed like there were two stories going on that I think will build throughout the series and I am definitely interested to follow the characters. It seems like the end result will be the two families getting together, but we shall see.

Anyway, let's talk about our main characters. Heather has been taking care of her adopted daughter since the death of her best friend when Ava was born. Heather doesn't regret a single aspect of her life with Ava, but as parents know children have their moments. Ava's is when she lets her stuffed animal get some air while in the car and he falls out. After looking everywhere Heather takes to the internet to see if anyone has spotted Ava's stuffed animal.

Then there's Sebastian. He was a douche canoe. After losing his wife and unborn child in a car accident he closed himself off to everything except work. He grew his father and family empire to a mega-million dollar cooperation and he closed off all feelings for anything outside of work. When he came across Ava's little baby he threw it in the trash. Yeah, in the freaking trash. Upon meeting Heather and Ava he was rude and short but he had an immediate reaction to both of them that he struggled with to his core.

Heather was such a cute and sweet character that just wanted what was best for her daughter. I totally empathized with Heather and just loved her. I liked Sebastian's character as well and I'm glad that when he came out of his shell he was a good person and not a complete troll.

I adored The Broken One and can't wait to see where this series goes. The pacing was very well done.

I liked that each character had their own path to work through and treated their relationship like a real relationship and not some overdramatized thing. It felt like a real relationship. I loved that Heather and Sebastian had a real relationship outside of the sexy times. There were dates and texting and teasing each other. It was very cute.

The Broken One is a must-read with a great and unique story and amazing characters.




Ruth Cardello hit the New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers Lists for the first time back in 2012. Millions of sales are evidence that her books are akin to potato chips, addictive from the first one. She has created a multi-series billionaire world with a combination of escapism and realism that has gained her a faithful following of readers.

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York--then came full circle and moved back to New England. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.

She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm or connecting with her readers online.
