Publisher's Summary

Book One of a three book trilogy.
Nick O'Hara is a veritable womanizer. The only qualifications that he looks for in a romantic connection is that the person is hot and breathing. Mainly hot. He has no desire for an emotional connection with another person, and that's the way he lives his life. He has his fabulous wealth and his reputation as a premiere architect, and that's enough for him.
Until Scotty James.
Scotty is a graduate student at Columbia University in New York City. She's broken from traumatic experiences from her years in foster care and homelessness. She has a vulnerability that is intoxicating to Nick, because, deep down, he knows that he is as broken as she.
When Nick pursues Scotty, it seems that she is the only woman who doesn't want to be with him. At first she's a challenge, but Nick soon finds himself falling in love for the first time in his life. With a woman who wants nothing to do with him.
Can Scotty overcome her trust issues and fear to let Nick in? Or will she prove to be too broken to trust?

Good story

I enjoyed this audiobook of the first book in this series. The narration was well done and the story moved along well also. I did find myself a little frustrated with the hero, as he didn't seem to think straight sometimes, and the heroine was very timid (though she had s reason to be).
P.S. Hate the character of Portia!!

I just couldn't finish it.

Would you try another book from Annie Jocoby and/or Jeremy York and Allison Lynnewood ?

The only person I want to hear more from is Jeremy York. The book dragged on so slowly, I fell asleep multiple times while listening to it. (This never happens to me.) Also, Allison Lynnewood was inappropriately sexy/breathy when her character was supposed to be fearful of affection. I wish I could give York 5 stars and Lynnewood 1 star.


Would you ever listen to anything by Annie Jocoby again?

Highly unlikely.


Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I'd say, yes. The story was slow and Lynnewood was slow. Jeremy York seemed to do his best to bring life to the story.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Broken?

Honestly, I made it only halfway through the story before I just couldn't listen anymore. I will possibly go back to it at some point. What I heard so far, I think could have been condensed/cut down to about 1/4 of what was written.
