Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.
Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians you name it, she's probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He's in for a different kind of fighting. And though he's arrogant and infuriating, she can't help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.
Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it's trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He's met girls like her before fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn't think he's broken, and he definitely doesn't need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about: his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.
Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.
Another NA winner by Cora Carmack!
Thoughts on All Broke Down
Good gravy, I liked this one. Silas was so broken and so aware of it. Which kinda hurt. He could see himself doing things that jeopardized his football career and the yawning abyss of what his life would turn into when it fell apart terrified him. Which made him lash out. Which made things worse.
It was a wicked, tangled circle.
Now, I didn’t love Silas after what he did to Dallas at the beginning of book 1. Frankly, Dallas had no love for Silas either. But somewhere in there Silas turned things around. He knew he messed up and he stepped up for the team and it worked. When Dylan fell into his life, he was in bad place. She helped him find his balance and focus. Flat out, Dylan made Silas better.
For her part, Dylan was so stifled by the life she thought she had to lead she was choking on it. She needed to cut loose. And who better to help her do that than sexy Silas? They might come from two very different worlds, but they had definite chemistry.
There are some events that happen in this book that will have some interesting consequences down the road. I know Stella has a way to go before her book and I feel for her.
I have book 3 ready for me to read. The only thing that was hanging me up was that I wanted to get this review written first. So… I’m off!
