Book Review - The Broken One by Ruth Cardello (Free on Kindle Unlimited)


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?


I've been a fan of Ruth Cardello's for years and have read and enjoyed everything she has published.  This book felt different in the best way possible from Ruth's other work.  The characters had so much demention and depth that they were easy to understand and relate to throughout the story.  They never felt like a characature or fake and it was easy to follow the character growth as the story progresses.  Sebastian and Heather are the stars of the book, but Ava and Judy are the scene stealers.  I felt as invested in Judy's story as I did the main plot and look forward to seeing how the "B Plot" progresses.
