Overview

The thrilling new follow up to the new adult bestseller Me, Cinderella? by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aubrey Rose!

Happily ever after is just what they say in books. Real life is MUCH more complicated.

Brynn can't believe her good luck. Her Cinderella story continues as she finds herself studying math in a castle on the edge of a Hungarian forest. However, no fairy tale lasts forever, and a letter about her mother's death opens up a whole new world of nightmares...

Eliot, finally back in Hungary, is haunted by the lie he told ten years ago to protect his family. Now he finds that he can no longer hide his dark past from Brynn, and time is running out to finish his life's work in mathematics.

The problem that neither one of them can solve is this:

Once broken, can two shattered lives ever be made whole again?

Broken Prince Aubrey Rose. Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews. Well, I loved Me, Cinderella so was really excited to get to review the follow up. Broken Prince starts off with Brynn still living in the castle with Eliot. She's still recovering from the attack, has nightmares but Eliot has been a great back up and support to her. They're working on the Math problem too – all looks roses for the future doesn't it? Then she gets a letter from Mark about her mothers death. That was one of the reasons she came to Hungary to find out more and to visit her grave. The grave part is done but as for learning more about her murder – well that's been a dead end til now... Eliot – oh he's such a lovely man, thoughtful and caring, loves Brynn dearly but in giving her time to recover he makes her think maybe he's wishing she wasn't there. There's a huge lack of communication between them, he's wrapped up in the Math problem, she should be also but her recovery has taken precedence, and now learning more about the murder draws her further away. Mark has always been a close friend, but now he's dating someone she doesn't like and who doesn't like her, that avenue for confiding is gone, and in a strange country she's becoming more and more isolated. She ought to talk to Eliot about her fears and problems of course, that would be natural, but their relationship has been a strange and rocky journey and she's not really secure enough to do that. She's got so much on her mind, there's the murder of her mum, the illness that's threatening her grans health, the worries over the attack and of course the work for university she needs to get done. She feels she can't offload all that on Eliot though, she worries about being too demanding when he's under pressure from the university about his Paper, and clearly has old issues pressing on him. He worries that maybe she's decided their relationship is a mistake, regrets it, that the age gap is too much and he's upset. Instead of talking it over they both keep their fears inside and grow further apart. Then the press start dredging up old scandals, taking photos of Brynn while she's at the castle and making suggestions about Eliot's propriety, there's other secrets coming out but in dribs and drabs and of course that leads to misunderstanding, Eliot's brother Otto ( what an awful, supercilious man he is!) is in the Government at a time when its unpopular, and that rubs off on Eliot too. After 13 years there's another murder linked to her mothers one. Everything comes to a head at once, and Brynn's action – that made me tearful for her and for Eliot. Once again its a wonderful read, with disparate threads and actions slowly tying together to form a clearer picture. Brynn's unhappiness and insecurity shows through and I felt for her and yet, though she fears he's drawing away, its clear Eliot is still deeply in love and just trying to do what's best for her. A perfect love story, not a sexy, grand passion but a warm and sensual, enduring, slow burn romance, wrapped up in a series of slowly revealed mysteries from the past. Fabulous read and one for the keepers file! Stars: five ARC supplied via author

I received and ARC from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. This is a great story about heartbreak and moving on from a broken past. Brynn is trying to move forward after the hunter attacked her, trying to learn what really happened to her mother and loving Eliot. Eliot, after ten years is still trying to move past his wife’s death, that was not his fault. But he blames himself and it makes moving forward with Brynn hard to be happy. Will they be able to love and be loved if Brynn finds out what happened to her mother? Can Eliot move past the guilt to love Brynn? Aubrey Rose has a way of telling a story that will draw you in and make you hold your breath until the very end. I hope you will give Me, Cinderella? And Broken Prince a chance, they are both very good and Brynn & Eliot are well worth the read. I hope you enjoy it as I have.

I can't believe how much I FELT while reading this story! Aubrey obviously did A LOT of research for this book in terms of the math Eliot and Brynn are studying.  Her descriptions of scenery and people makes it so easy to envision what she had in mind when she was writing. Me, Cinderella? and Broken Prince together made a truly wonderful story about two broken people who try to help fix each other.

Book reads well independently. But much better story read in order, Me Cinderella read first. This is a true romance, not a lustmance. Enjoy.

Brynn has found her prince but what happens after "happily ever after"? Eliot is struggling with his math work and being back in Hungary. He is keeping secrets from Brynn, secrets that need to be revealed. Brynn is struggling to come to grips after the attack she suffered. Eliot is being sweet and supportive by giving her space. Brynn continues to work on finding more about her mom's death but will she be able to handle the truth? Will their love for each other be enough to weather all the trials and tribulations? Loved spending more time with Brynn and Eliot as they work through the realities of a relationship while dealing with their own demons.

I enjoyed reading Broken Prince, it was a book that I was anxiously waiting to read. From the beginning to the very end, I thought Aubrey Rose did a good job describing the growth of both characters and their ups and downs as a couple. I'm still amazed at how she mixes mathematics with romance all in one.  It's evident that both Brynn and Eliot love each other, but it's their pasts that comes to haunt them just when they thought that they had the perfect ending to their fairy-tale story. The story starts off with Eliot and Brynn getting into a fight, their struggle to hold things inside them and not letting them out is hurting them more than ever. They hide what is really happening to them just so that they don't end up hurting the other. Living in a castle with Eliot was a quite the adjustment for Brynn. After what happened to her, she feels scared and confused. But as the mystery of her death mother keeps haunting her, she is determined to find out what to her if she really wants a future with Eliot. Moving back to Hungary hasn't been easy for Eliot, after been in exile for so many years the last thing he wants is to be known for the death of his wife. He still struggles to get past that and his career as a mathematician/professor is one of the things that he relies on to keep him from breaking apart. He truly loves Brynn, but when the secret that he is hiding from everyone weights on him is almost impossible to move forward with her and their future. Now he has to figure out how to break family bonds and be with the one he loves. Broken Prince deals with more self growth than anything else, both characters have demons that have haunt them down to break and separate them. Aubrey Rose does a good job with the entire plot, I did wished there were more scenes in some parts, but overall it was a great read. What I liked about the book is that it gives readers both characters' insights. They mystery builds up as the story progressed and the ending by far was my favorite part of the book. The author ties everything well and it's all beautifully written that I didn't want the book to end! I highly recommend everyone to read the first book, (Me, Cinderella?) and this book as well. :) *ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
