Ruined and broken, she’s left alone to pick up the pieces of her life. Unable to cope, she spontaneously packs up and moves across the country, hoping that new scenery will help.
Once in sunny Florida, she finds an apartment and a job but while Jessie is surviving, she isn’t living…until one night she meets someone. Dominick.
Desperate for an escape from the pain of her memories, she relents to his unerring determination and agrees to spend time with him.
Through his patience and understanding, she will learn that she’s not ruined…she’s just a little broken.

Be prepared to have your heart torn, then shredded, then trampled on, keep the tissues on hand, and that&rsquo;s just the first chapters. Jessie Braden was young, her life was complete, until that one fateful night that everything came crashing down. A mother&rsquo;s worst nightmare, a wife&rsquo;s tortured betrayal, and a guilt that buried all that Jesse was, followed her day and night. Being alive became Jessie&rsquo;s own personal Hell on Earth, her own brand of punishment. She moved away, left everyone in her life behind and tried to avoid dealing with the past, never letting anyone in until a handsome and caring man with more compassion and heart than anyone Jessie could ever dream of, forced himself into her life. But can Dominick give Jessie the strength to learn to live again, to move on, forgive herself? <b>A Little Broken</b> by Juli Valenti is a tale of rebuilding after a devastating loss, of learning to cope and of learning to give as much as you take. Her writing is emotionally deep, filled with the jagged edges of pain that can bring tears to the eyes of the reader. There is no miraculous turnaround for her main character, Jessie and the well of despair can be frustrating to read, but, that said, is extremely realistic. The patience and support from Dominick felt warm and almost dreamlike, very romantic and over the top. With a supporting cast that brightens each page with their loyalty and support as well as their humorous quips balance the story well as it flows to it final resolve. True romance, damaged characters and all!
