***I received an ARC copy of this book from Inkwater Press in exchange for an honest review ** In the first installment of the Broken Road series we meet Charlie and Riley, best friends who decide to take a trip to Las Vegas to get away from Charlie's abusive ex-boyfriend. While there, they meet Wyatt, Miles and Jesse, actors who are taking a mini vacation from a movie that they are shooting. Overall, I really enjoyed the storyline of the book. I connected well with all of the characters and each of the struggles that they were facing. I found myself feeling the same emotions they were going through as I was reading and couldn't wait to find out what happened next. Despite my overall enjoyment of the book, there are a few main reasons I am only giving the book 3 stars. First off, the dialogue between the characters was very poorly written. Being 26 years old myself, like Charlie, I can't imagine conversations with my friends or significant others taking place the way the conversations in the book did. They just sounded very proper and almost forced. I often found myself thinking "Who says something like that?" as I would read pieces of a conversation. It was distracting from the overall feeling of the story. Secondly, the storyline races! We barely get a chance to know any of the characters before they are falling in love with each other (yes I realize this contradicts my statement about feeling the same emotions as the characters). As much as I enjoyed the book, I would have liked the opportunity to get to know more about the characters rather than just delve right into the drama. Lastly, I felt like the side story (Miles and Riley, Scott/Jesse/Darius) was too prominent. Give me more detail on Charlie & Wyatt while I am reading their story and give me the extra details about the other characters as the other books books come out. Maybe I'm just picky. As I said before, overall I really enjoyed the story and I do plan on reading the next one to see how all of the character's stories pan out. Somehow, despite my picky details, I got sucked into the book and read it within 2 days and was excited knowing there was another to come.
