When a professional relationship turns personal, it’s impossible to resist the law of attraction.
Alec Rowland is a high-flying lawyer in a London firm whose career is his life. He doesn’t have time for relationships and his sexuality is a closely guarded secret. After picking up a cute guy on a Friday night, Alec’s world is rocked to its foundations when his one night stand shows up in the office on Monday morning—as the new temp on his team.
Ed Piper is desperate to prove himself in his new job. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by a crush on his boss. It’s hard to ignore the attraction he feels, even though Alec’s a difficult bastard to work for.
Both men strive to maintain a professional relationship, but tempers fray, passions ignite, and soon they’re both falling hard and fast. If they’re ever going to find a way to be together, Alec needs to be honest about who he really is because Ed won’t go back in the closet for anyone.

Love the characters. Love the story. Want to read more about these people
I am in absolute complete awe after reading Broken. Powerful. Engrossing. All-encompassing. Real. I can't help but wonder how many people have been in Theo's position. Ms. Haken portrays Theo as a gentle, sometimes sarcastic, kind, passionate and compassionate person with a dream. A dream he pursues with determination. And then there's the rich, powerful, arrogant James, the complete opposite of Theo. When I read about James' dark secret, I'm reminded of myself as I've been through the same thing James has. I can't help but think that Ms. Haken copied my life story. She tackles the subject of struggling with mental illness with the sensitivity, understanding and compassion that people in that position need, but far too often are denied. I applaud Ms. Haken's effort to bring this issue to light. I feel that if everyone read this book, it would make significant strides in the acceptance of those struggling with mental illness, no matter what form it takes and all those whose lives are touched by it, friends, family, co-workers, anyone and everyone. I know I seem to be focusing on the subject of James' illness, but it's an important part of the relationship between James and Theo. It is my hope that anyone reading this book comes away with a better understanding of mental illnesses and how important it is to have the support of friends and family. If I could give Broken a thousand stars, I would. Since I can't, I'll have to give it 5 stars.
