Explosive conclusion to the best book I have ever read!!!!
Reviewed in the United States on December 14, 2018
I struggled writing this review as there are not enough words to describe just how much I love this story and how deeply Branch and Ragan have touched my heart and soul. I have truly fallen in love with them and may never get over the hangover that this book has given me.
Salvaged Hearts is book two of the No Longer Broken Series by Lilly Wilde and it is so incredibly emotional and deep that I was not only rendered speechless, I felt it deep in the pit of my stomach. There were several times I had to stop reading because I either couldn't see the words through my tears or my body was shaking with so much rage I couldn't continue. The injustice Ragan experienced literally made me want to jump in the pages and hurt someone. The loneliness and loss Branch endured pulled me to offer him hugs and comfort although I knew it was Impossible to do so. From Book one we learned of the struggles that Branch and Ragan fought through and the walls that they put up to protect themselves. I was gutted by all that Ragan endured, and her fight for survival endeared her to me. The walls we saw of these broken souls in Shattered Beginnings start to gradually fall in Salvaged Hearts. From circumstances that broke their hearts and mine, Branch and Ragan form a bond that grows into a friendship neither of them understand, one that places a smile on your face and a warmth in your heart.
Lilly has given us not only a love story that can change the stars, she has given us characters that we will never be able to forget!! Jimmy, Loretta, Hayley, Jace, Mary, Curtis, and Carrie have added depth and humour to the story in a way that you are pulled so completely into their lives, you never want it to end. I have never felt so many different emotions in one book, one minute I was laughing and yelling “you go girl” and other times I was seeing red and wanting to slap someone in the face. I was emotionally exhausted yet utterly invested in their lives and when it all came to an end I had completely and utterly fallen in love!!!
