Publisher's Summary

When Theodore Davenport decides to switch his mundane job for a career, he walks into Holden House Publishing with enthusiasm and determination to succeed. As he settles into his new role, makes new friends, and dreams of making it to the top, everything is going to plan. Until he meets James Holden, CEO of Holden House. James Holden hasn't been able to stop thinking about his encounter with the timid man he met in a club bathroom last week, and when he discovers the one haunting his dreams is an employee, he can't seem to stop himself from pursuing him. Just a little fun - that's what James tells himself. He can't afford to care for someone who can never reciprocate, not once they find out who he really is. James believes nobody deserves the burden of being attached to him. He's a complicated man. Damaged. Difficult. Demanding. Broken. Is Theodore strong enough to confront James' demons? More importantly, is James?
M/M romance. Not suitable for listeners under 18 years of age due to language and sexual content.
Please note: This book contains scenes of self-harm, mental illness, and suicidal ideation which may be uncomfortable for some listeners.

I am absolutely gutted by this book.

Being bipolar myself, this story really resonated with me. Though I did get a few chuckles out of it, there were times I was just sobbing. It's not an easy listen. Despite that, I loved this story because it didn't whitewash anything. Severe mental illness is a challenge for so many people. I hope Broken will let people truly understand who haven't been around it before. I can totally identify with James's statements about being a good liar and a good actor who can hide his feelings of depression from everyone.
I really loved and adored both James and Theo. I loved how Theo really stood by James and supported him in getting better. I also liked the supporting characters. Well, maybe except for Mike. 😉

I haven't read this book myself yet, just listened to it. I rave about Joel Leslie every time I listen to a book he's narrated. This one though. OMG. the depth of emotion he is able to express just with his voice blows me away. I can't just give him 5 stars for this one. I also need to add in the sun and the moon. And maybe even the whole galaxy. I don't know how he managed to get through this book and remain in such good control.

Without a doubt, this book will go right into my top 10 of all time.

Tissues ready

What made the experience of listening to Broken the most enjoyable?

I have read this book before, but not listened until now, You get to feel each character feelings. I cried, I laugh I felt every emotion, outstanding

Which character – as performed by Joel Leslie – was your favourite?

James Joel put so much emotion into how James was feeling, utter draining. Just outstanding, you felt what the MCs feeling we're at each turning,

Any additional comments?

Joel Lelie once again was brilliant, for such a deep book, it is written so very well. I like the concept that you saw each other's feelings the dispares and the highs

Beautiful story, well worth the read/listen.

This book, especially narrated by Joel Leslie, showed how mental illness can be so debilitating but with love and compassion from those around you and seeking professional help is vital. Loved this book.

Loved the book. LOVE the audio

Would you consider the audio edition of Broken to be better than the print version?

This has been a standout book for me for a couple of years now. The audio was a great way to reconnect with this story.

Any additional comments?

Not going to lie, Joel Leslie's accent did take me a while to get in to, but after a chapter I didn't even notice it.
