BOOK REVIEW - Broken Road by Addison Kline

4 out of 5 Stars
Note:  I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Broken Road is Book 2 in the Breaking Black Series.  I have not read the first book.  But, I was okay.  (It would probably help, but obviously not necessary to completely understand the story.)  I got the idea of how much animosity there was between the Seventy Devils and those who they hurt.  I could automatically understand how passionately people felt about their feelings and their families, because we all feel the same way.  

The Devils have made life difficult for the town they live in and all of those around them, especially for one family.  The leader of the Devils, Jimmie, seems to have a love for Averi that he can't quench.  He must have her.  The only problem is - she is married to Jimmie's half-brother Colt, and is pregnant with his child.  Averi and Colt's love has grown since they were in high school, if not before.  Their love started as a true friendship and has grown throughout the years.  Now, Jimmie threatens to take what Colt has to make his own.

Averi's brother, Randy, also has a love, Cheyenne.  Cheyenne is a lost soul who can't seem to find her way out
of the Devils, and isn't being helped by her own mother and step-father.  Through betrayal and trickery Cheyenne is used as a pawn in the Devil's game.  Without giving away too much more of the story, I can tell you the story is wrapped up at the end of the book.

Addison Kline does an amazing job of painting a full picture of the story.  She gives you all the information you need to know while completely telling the story.  There is one section of the book that is a flashback, which was interesting to read.  It was nice to get the backstory of how all of the relationships came to be.  It made it that much more interesting.  Kline takes an extended family and a group of friends and turns them into a whole unit and close knit family.  All-in-all a well written book at the root of what a family will do to defend the ones you love.
