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.
Cora Carmack is a twenty-something writer who likes to write about twenty-something characters. She’s done a multitude of things in her life– boring jobs (like working retail), Fun jobs (like working in a theatre), stressful jobs (like teaching), and dream jobs (like writing). She enjoys placing her characters in the most awkward situations possible, and then trying to help them get a boyfriend out of it. Awkward people need love, too. She is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Losing It series.
Go away. I have too many feelings.
(Please refer to my sentence above.)
(That exactly what I said to my friends when they were telling me to get my bags because we’re back at school and we should go back to our dorms and get some sleep.)
How do you deal with too many feelings? How do you stop smiling so stupidly after you read this? How do you cope with all the emotions this book gave you?
The answer: You can’t. You live life like you’re whole and fine when in reality you’re a bomb that won’t stop ticking and just about to explode any single minute now.
This book holds my heart forever.
This book will get hold of your heart forever once you’ve read this. I promise. Now go away and read this.
Can I start by saying I love Silas and Dylan so bad???? Like, I hopelessly love them. Dylan is so relate-able in so many levels and Silas is your good bad boy cliche that you can’t help but fall for. Yes, he’s mega sweet and sexy. Goodness gracious.
Also, there’s so many quotable quotes (again) in this book (like in All Lined Up) Like, overwhelming-heart-touching-life-changing kind of quotes.
All Broke Down has a slightly darker backdrop for characters. But what’s admirable is that through that past, they have become really good people who deserves immense amount of love.
Overall, this book doesn’t need words for reviews. This is the kind of book that you’ll love forever because it has planted itself deep in your heart and no matter how hard you try, you just never find the right words to describe what you’re feeling. It’s the kind of book you go to sleep thinking of, falling asleep smiling. It’s the kind of book that reminds you that no matter how hard your life is going, at one point, you’ll be able to meet that one person that’s going to change the ending – that’s going to change you to the person meant for your happy ending. There’s going to be that person that’s going to make you see yourself for who you are, not who you’ve been trying to be. Just remember that the most important thing is to trust yourself more than anyone else.
