Broken Toy (MF) by Tymber Dalton (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$7.99
Categories: BDSM, Contemporary

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

Having a new Tymber Dalton book to read is like having a box of expensive chocolates hidden away in a secret place, where every so often you can indulge yourself in the decadent goodness of her words. Broken Toy is just that...a sweet, heartwarming love story about two lonely people who find each other at a very unconventional dinner. There is mutual interest between them, but before much can happen, Gabe(Ella) backs away before revealing much about herself. Then, fate intervenes and they both end up on a task force between her state agency and his local department. Gabe decides to allow herself to explore her attraction to Bill, and their story continues. Gabe has basically lived her life for her job, keeping herself firmly enclosed in her secrets and her scars. The beauty of this book is how Bill, through his patience and steadiness, begins to unravel all of Gabe's tightly wrapped layers and fears, allowing her to grow into who she really is and what she needs and wants from him. The love that develops between them is an almost visual blooming into a strong, enduring relationship that grows deeper as they both reveal more of themselves to each other. There is no major drama or angst in their story, just a beautifully developed relationship between two people who grow to love each other and heal themselves in the process.

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

I always enjoy anything written by Tymber Dalton, and this one did not disappoint me. Her Suncoast series is my favorite and it was a treat to revisit the characters from the previous books. The story begins with Laura in a coma after surviving a brutal attack in her home, where she certainly would have been killed had her neighbor not interrupted the attack. She wakes up to discover her memory is gone and she doesn't know who she is. She doesn't recognize Rob, her fiancé, or any of their friends. There aren't any big surprises in the book and it's not a stretch to figure out who the bad guy is. What makes this book outstanding is the author's ability to draw you in to the lives and feelings of the characters. I literally shed tears for Rob's pain for Laura's injuries and his loss of the Laura who used to be. I felt the frustrations Laura lived with in trying to remember who she was and who she had been. The best of it all was that in spite of the amnesia, Laura still felt the connection and love between her and Rob and struggles with the "something no one is talking about" missing piece of their lives. Which, of course, is the BDSM lifestyle. I happen to love the erotica genre, and the lifestyle was an integral part of the story. That said, this book would have been a 5 star story for me, had it been plain vanilla. THAT is what I love about TD books. Also, I rarely give a five star rating. To me, that means a book will stay with me and be put in that exclusive category of "I'm saving this one to read over and over when I retire" category. Well done, Tymber. Again, so glad you are much younger than I! I look forward to reading your books well into the future!
