MADE TO BE BROKEN – Kelley Armstrong
About MADE TO BE BROKEN (taken from goodreads.com)
Nadia Stafford isn’t your typical nature lodge owner. An ex-cop with a legal code all her own, she’s known only as “Dee” to her current employer: a New York crime family that pays her handsomely to bump off traitors. But when Nadia discovers that a troubled teenage employee and her baby have vanished in the Canadian woods, the memory of a past loss comes back with a vengeance and her old instincts go into overdrive.
With her enigmatic mentor, Jack, covering her back, Nadia unearths sinister clues that point to an increasingly darker and deadlier mystery. Now, with her obsession over the case deepening, the only way Nadia can right the wrongs of the present is to face her own painful ghosts—and either bury them for good, or die trying. Because in her book everyone deserves a chance. And everyone deserves justice.
Review of MADE TO BE BROKEN
It’s probably completely unfair of me to review anything by Kelley Armstrong. Everything she writes get 5+ stars. I just can’t help it! She’s just such a good writer! This book is no exception.
I liked that the mystery or case in this book wasn’t random like a lot of crime books. Something happens that hits close to home and Nadia takes it upon herself to do something about it. I thought the case was kind of different too. Someone selling babies on the black market? What a cool idea. Not literally of course. I like how dark this book can get, it’s way different from anything else I’ve read.
I’m really concerned about the love triangle the author has going on. It’s almost an obvious pick but with Kelley Armstrong I’ve learned not to trust anything so I’m really excited to see what happens in book three. Nadia is a fantastic main character. I love that she’s not a typical hit woman that likes to kill for fun. She knows she’s good at it and needs the money. Plus she only kills bad people. I like how she questions if even that is a good idea. She’s just a really strong character. Of the two men Jack is my favorite. Normally I’d go for the character like Quinn but Jack is just so random and entertaining.
Anyways just read this book. Seriously.
5 out of 5
“I love that woman. The only thing I want is for her to be happy. I’ll do whatever it takes to see that happen. Do you get that?”
