Life shattered my bones, now it wants to break my heart.
Jaymerson Holloway thought all her grief and pain were behind her. Unfortunately, life has other ideas.
Where stories don’t end happily.
Where hearts shattered into pieces and love slips through your fingers.
Leaving everything behind to follow her dreams, Jaymerson travels to Italy, where she learns to stand on her own, move on with her life, and open her heart to another. But nothing prepares her for seeing Hunter’s life explode over the TV screen and watching his success, which comes with lots of women wanting a piece of The Haze. Crueler is the agony of seeing him fall in love with another. But that isn’t even the worst of it.
When she returns home and their paths cross, they are no longer the same people. The old animosity they once felt for each other flares the ties between them. Especially when more secrets and truths are uncovered.
Like moths to flames, their undeniable chemistry continues to pull them to each other and tangle their lives together, even though it will only end in heartbreak and sorrow.
Don’t miss the second installment of the Blinded Love Series, the final story of Jaymerson and Hunter, but don’t despair. Stevie is up next in the third book, Twisted Love.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Have you ever read a book where you held off from reviewing it because you knew that would mean it was actually over? That's what this book was for me. It was such an intense ride from book 1, Shattered Love, to now with Broken Love. With both books I carved time out but it wasn't enough. I didn't prepare for the emotional turmoil I would be going through. And that's precisely what I look for in a contemporary romance. I want to feel it long after the pages stop turning. I want a book that makes me feel everything the characters are going through and removes me completely from the life I'm in. Broken Love did not disappoint in that department. Jayme and Hunter were just as electric as before, but we got to see Jayme come alive in a way I hoped she could, but didn't know if she would. She grew to be her own person. Making decisions based on her desires and the person she grew to become, like a phoenix rising from the ashes of her car wreck with Colton. I was amazing to watch her not bend to Hunter's desires, her parents, or even her best friend Stevie. She lived her life and made her decisions based on what was best for HER, and I loved every moment of it. Hunter on the other hand felt like he regressed some, but it's hardly enough to hold it against him when you see all the things stacked against him. But Hunter is the type of guy I love, he feels deeply and is super tender, but hides it underneath a layer of "not caring" or just being driven to do the right thing. You get him at face value and don't have to wonder if he's conniving or has ulterior motives lurking somewhere to hurt you. Hunter is just Hunter, and that's more than enough for me. I loved watching the push and pull, how no matter what life threw at these two, they truly were destined to always find their way back to one another. It's beautiful, and I'm sad this ride is over. I'm excited for Stevie, but I'm afraid no one could ever touch Jayme and Hunter for me.
Such a profound and heart-wrenching tale of maddeningly deep emotions. Jayme and Hunter love more passionately and hate more fiercely because they do so with their whole being. Both of them want nothing more than to fulfill their dreams and hold onto each other with everything they have. But Jayme doesn't feel like she can compete with his dreams and often is placed last, and Hunter feels like Fate has it in for them. Ripped apart yet again, Jayme finds herself in Italy and Hunter on the rise to fame on the Supercross circuit. One year apart has not lessened the deep, unending, soul-fracturing love they feel for each other and when they finally lay eyes on each other again, the effects ripple like through-out the town. I loved this book and I'm certain you will too. I hope to see these characters again in the future. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!! Broken Love is a brilliantly written story that will capture your emotions and steal your heart.
This review MAY contain spoilers. Read at your own risk. Wow, when I went into this series I had no idea that these books would come to mean so much to me. This book far surpassed the first book, which is saying a lot since it was pretty epic. This book series has pulled out my heart, shattered it, taped it back together, broken it some more, and healed again the way that only a climactic and emotional story can. Contemporary books are usually hit or miss with me. I generally don't care for them but once in a while, I will read one like this series that will blow me away. I am very impressed with this series. The plot of this book and this series so far as a whole really blew me away. There is so much drama and so much heartache wrapped inside this series. One of the things that I love best about Brown's books is the incredible plots. She is always creative and clever with the construction of her stories. There will always be plot twists that you will never see coming and wonderful foreshadowing. I get so giddy inside just thinking about reading one of her books because I know that I will be glued to the pages. The other thing that I feel is synonymous with Brown's books is her complex character building. The characters in her books are always, always special. They have depth and incredible character growth. This book is no different. I felt so connected to these characters. Like I was living this story with them and through them. I felt everything they felt and experienced everything with them. These characters feel very personal. The character growth in this book, in particular, is astounding when compared to where these characters were in the first book. The chemistry between these characters is so electric and brilliant. When you stop reading you will not want to let these characters go. I still can't stop thinking about them. The world-building was changed up a bit in this book because the main character lives in Italy for a few years. Even though this is a contemporary, Brown does an excellent job of putting the reader in the character's environments. You will get the small town vibe when the characters are in their hometown, you will feel the magic of Italy when the main character is living there, and you will feel all of the little things in between. The romance in this book and this series is absolutely amazing. I mean, there are hardly words to describe it and any that I come up with will pale in comparison to the reality. The romance in this book will make you believe in true love. With all of the drama and obstacles that the main characters have to face and conquer so that they can be together is just plain inspiring. There is so much pain and suffering, but there is also joy and a sense of completeness. My heart was definitely rocked by this love story. Overall, this is another fantastic book by Stacey Marie Brown! She never ceased to amaze me with her compelling plots, vibrant characters, and beautiful storytelling. This is a story that will definitely sit on my heart for a long while. This is the kind of story that you will reread for the feels. To experience them again. If you want a shocking and beautiful love story then you'll want to pick up this series. I recommend all of Brown's books. Her storytelling is among my favorites. I received an Advance Reader Copy at no cost from the publisher/author.
I don’t even know where to begin as this book sucked me right in, wrung me out, and put me into a book hanger. This book is raw, gritty, entertaining, and an emotional rollercoaster full of love, heartache, tragedy, and hope. Broken Love is book 2 in this author’s The Blinded Love series and you will need to read Shattered Love first. This book picks up at the very end of Jaymerson’s senior year in high school and does span a couple of years which I think was very fitting for the storyline. I don’t always like to read books where I cry and feel like my heart is getting ripped out, but the author crafts such a beautiful story about two people who have such an intense love for each other that they are magnets with a gravitational pull towards each other. They survived tragedy in book 1 and still their path towards their HEA is a long, winding road. Seriously, just read the book. It is amazing. Told entirely from Jayme’s POV, you go through the gamete of emotions. She is still that strong, likable heroine who has been through so much, yet continues to persevere. I love how the author made you really feel all of her emotions. Hunter is a survivor, but he has that vulnerability that isn’t always obvious and he seems to carry an awful lot of weight on his shoulders and it just keeps getting heavier and heavier. There were times that I wanted to shake him, but I couldn’t help but love him. My heart broke multiple times for these two. I really enjoyed how many of the secondary characters from Shattered Love are also in this book - especially with Stevie, Chris, and Doug playing a more prominent role as they are the type of people that I would love to be friends with and have in my corner. I love how the author further developed these characters and I am really looking forward to Stevie’s book as she is one of the most interesting characters that I have ever encountered. This book does not end in a cliffhanger and it does have a HEA. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It moved at a good pace, had some great twists and turns, and the author skillfully puts you through all the feels. I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review.
