Reader Review: I love Hart's books and this one is no exception. I was riveted by Joe's monthly stories and I couldn't wait for the next month's story. Unlike other reviewers (apparently) I did identify with Sadie because I was also stuck in a loveless crappy marriage that I didn't have the strength to leave. I didn't judge Sadie cause I get it. Like most of Hart's books, it's not a traditional romance but that's what I like. I'd rank this book just under Dirty as my favorite Hart romance.
My name is different every month—Brandy, Honey, Amy...sometimes Joe doesn't even bother to ask—but he never fails to arouse me with his body, his mouth, his touch, no matter what I'm called or where he picks me up. The sex is always amazing, always leaves me itching for more in those long weeks until I see him again.
My real name is Sadie, and once a month over lunch Joe tells me about his latest conquest. But what Joe doesn't know is that, in my mind, I'm the star of every X-rated one-night stand he has revealed to me, or that I'm practically obsessed with our imaginary sex life. I know it's wrong. I know my husband wouldn't understand. But I can't stop. Not yet.

I don't know this because I only met him three hours ago in a bar downtown. His name seemed as if it were a cosmic joke, but out of all the men I met tonight, Joe's the only one who bothered trying to have a conversation with me. That's why I picked him. That, and the fact that's he's hot and well-dressed, with a charming quirk of a smile that tries to look sincere but mostly doesn't.
"Mary, Mary quite contrary. How does your garden grow?"
His voice presses against me through the bathroom door. I've heard that rhyme a thousand times. Been called Proud Mary. Bloody Mary. Mary Poppins. My parents gave me the name thinking it had no diminutive, but people will always find a way to tease, if they want.
The doorknob is cool under my fingers and turns easily. I open the door to show Joe I'm ready for him. That the wait was worth it. I've stripped down to a set of lacy white panties and a matching bra, and I fight to keep from crossing my arms to shield myself from his scrutiny.
His eyes widen a bit. His tongue snakes out to slide along a mouth I haven't even kissed yet. I want to kiss it. He looks as if he'll taste good.
"Damn." The word's a compliment, not a curse, and I manage a slightly more confident smile.
I turn, slowly, so he can see me from all sides. When I come around again...

Broken is so much more than an erotic romance. Megan Hart takes you on a thought compelling journey, and if one sentence would summarize what Sadie experiences in this book it would be this, "...I'd never know the woman I'd have been if I hadn't met Adam. Until I met Joe, I hadn't wondered. Who was I now?"
Megan Hart has a true gift to make you feel and understand what the characters are going through, and why they do the things that they do. You feel Sadie's despair, disappointments, hopes, her sense of betrayal, her guilt, her love and hatred for her husband.
Joe's erotic stories feeds the need that Sadie has, after a void is left following her husbands accident leaving him paralyzed. After a few stories you can sense that Joe is changing every month, until you realize he is falling in love with Sadie. I know it is strange to say but you learn that he is falling in love with her through his sexual encounters with the other women. What? you may say, unbelievable as that may sound, it is true.
It is a definite tear-jerker, but am SO glad that I read this book. Thought provoking and erotic, though the encounters between Sadie and Joe only happen towards the end of their story. Can't say enough about Megan Hart as an author. She is unlike most authors in her genre.

Another good and emotional book by Hart. If you read her book Dirty, you will again meet Elle, Sadie being her therapist, and see what happens with her and Dan. In this book we meet Sadie, and her "fried" Joe who tells her about his sex conquests once a month. There is a lot of sex scenes, but it is mostly about Joe and all the random women he hooks up with. This story is definitely not a fairy tale romance, but how love can be extremely hard. It is definitely a very emotional read, but I still recommend it.

It is a very touching storyline. It's not lighthearted and romantic but very emotional.
