With Love For Romantic Books - Broken Pieces & Pieced Together by Kelly Moore - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Brogan has been traumatized in her past. Since that time she hasn’t let anybody come close to her, except her best friend and her brother. She lives in a small town and just keeps to herself. One night she goes to a town celebration and there she meets Kyren. He’s everything she wants in a man, but Brogan isn’t looking for a relationship. She doesn’t believe in love anymore, but she can’t deny the way he makes her feel. Will Kyren be the one who restores her trust in love?

Kyren is a yacht builder and he worked incredibly hard to get where he is today. He is mesmerized when he sees Brogan. He knows immediately that she is someone he wants to get close to. Their meeting ends with him crumpled on the floor and Brogan running for the hills. A small town has its advantages and he finds her again in no time.  Kyren and Brogan can’t deny their attraction to one another, but when they grow closer together old demons resurface. Both of them have their own hurt and guilt to work through, but will they manage to deal with it together?

Brogan sees herself as broken because of the violence in her past. I see her as a strong person who has fought her way through life. She’s tough as nails and therefore it took me a little while to warm up to her. In the beginning I didn’t understand her actions and where she was coming from. When I learned about how she became this way my heart broke for her. Brogan is surviving. She doesn't trust easily, but will do so with all her heart once someone gets past her walls.

Kyren is an ex-military alpha man who has gotten his own share of trauma. It's obvious that he cares about Brogan and he's so sweet to her. I loved that about him. He takes his time to help Brogan trust again. I liked Kyren from the beginning. He’s a wealthy self-made man who doesn’t look down on people and treats everyone with respect. 

In Broken Pieces Kelly Moore writes about how Brogan and Kyren got their scars. You really get to know the characters and it's easy to connect with them. I could actually feel their pain and sorrow. Brogan and Kyren’s connection is really beautiful. There is plenty of darkness in their pasts, which left them both traumatized. Kelly Moore writes about them with a lot of respect and dignity and I liked her sensitivity. I was hooked from the very first page and read Broken Pieces in one sitting. 


Broken Pieces is an emotional heartbreaking story about finding the courage to trust and love again. This story does address some difficult and violent topics. Please take this in consideration before you start reading.

Review by Anniek

Kyren had to make a difficult decision. Even though he saved Brogan’s life he can’t get over the choice he made. To find peace for himself Kyren leaves Brogan at a time she needs him the most. He isolates himself on his yacht and drowns his sorrows in alcohol. Kyren never got over the love he felt for Brogan, but hasn't been able to forgive himself for what happened. When fate leads him back to her will it be possible to win her heart all over again?

Brogan is devastated when Kyren breaks up with her. He’s the only one she has ever fully loved and is sure that she’ll never find a love like this again. She moves to a secluded island in Maine to rebuild her life. She starts her own practice and slowly accepts the way her life is now. Brogan has a big secret which Kyren knows nothing about. When Kyren shows up on her doorstep, determined to be a part of her life again, Brogan has no choice but to tell the truth. Will Kyren finally be the man she needs him to be?

Pieced Together tells the story of Kyren and Brogan three years after Kyren's heartbreaking decision. A lot has happened in the meantime, but the chemistry between them has never changed. They have their own way of dealing with the devastating events that caused them to break up. Kyren and Brogan have both been on a journey, which has made them stronger people. I loved to read about how love heals them both. 

Pieced Together is a story about all-consuming love and it has fierce main characters. Kelly Moore is one of my favorite writers. Ever since I started the Broken Pieces series I’ve been hooked. I fell in love with Kyren and Brogan in the first book and my love for them grew even stronger in Pieced Together. They have such an amazing connection. Kelly Moore is an experienced and skillful writer and she has written another brilliant story that I highly recommend.


Pieced Together is the second book in the Broken Pieces series. In order to fully understand the story I recommend to read the stories in chronological order.

About Kelly Moore

Hi my name is Kelly Moore and I am Southern girl raised in Florida. I am a registered nurse actually an ICU traveling nurse, wife, mother of two children and I have three grandchildren. I have always been an avid reader and kept journals. Until Broken Pieces, I never had the courage to attempt an erotic romance book and submit it for publishing. I tend to embrace the brokenness in all of us. It makes us who we are. I love to see people come out strong and win against past pains.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing the story…….
