Nearly Broken

We’d both gone missing at one point, but Claire had one thing I didn’t. Someone to notice. So why was I the one still here and she the one still gone? 

Nineteen year old Megan Smith has spent the past year working in a small town diner in the middle of nowhere. Life is quiet, simple, safe. Then comes the news that her look-a-like has gone missing. 


Still damaged both physically and mentally, Megan's not looking to be noticed. Wherever she goes from here, it's a road she needs to take alone. But when Nickolas Ellis takes the job as the new nightshift cook, it scares her how easily her defenses crumble down, down, down for him. But there are secrets she can't bear to share with just anyone, unspeakable acts that continue to haunt, and when the similarities of Claire’s abduction couples with the fear of an unwanted visitor in town, the urge to run before it all happens again intensifies, threatening the only happiness Megan's ever found.

Rating: 4 Stars

When they said this book was dark, they meant it. I don't think anything could have prepared me for the morbid life Megan has had to go through. This book discusses very traumatic circumstances that is not recommended for feint hearted. 

When left with the choice to stand and fight against your darkest fears, will you stay and face them, or continue to hide and run? Megan has to choose and if you decide to read this book you will get to be right there with her. 

Megan is finally safe. She is happy, in this small nowhere town. Where her past surely wont find her. She has escaped the nightmare of her kidnapping. But just when she starts to feel comfortable, letting down her guard down to the new night cook Nickolas, she is mistaken for another girl, Claire. A girl that looks exactly like Megan, who has gone missing as well, but this girl has someone to notice she is gone, she has someone to care what happened to her, so why hasn't she turned up. 

A man comes to the small town and Megan's carefully patched together world comes crashing down. She has to choose between keeping her secrets and confronting her demons, or releasing her burden to be free.

Remember this story may not be for everyone. Be sure this type of mature content is right for you! If you do choose to read it I hope you enjoy it. I look forward to the sequel!!
