Broken (Redemption #1) by Lauren Layne

21408690Olivia Middleton flees her cushy New York lifestyle after her life implodes after she makes what she believes to be the greatest mistake of her life. She winds up going to play nursemaid for a war-hero she believes to be some old guy.

Paul Langdon is a recluse; after suffering severe injuries overseas, he wants nothing more than to hide from the world he believes won't accept him. When his father tells him he has to stop running off his all the people he sends to care for him or he will cut him off.

When Paul sees Olivia he can't believe his father sent him someone in his own age group and worse, the type of person he would have hung out with in his pre-deployment era. 

The story was great, it was like a Beauty and the Beast; as Olivia and Paul get to know each other they help each other overcome their traumas and become better people. Both characters were very realistic. Their struggles really show the characters and it makes them very relatable. The book also showed the struggles that many people returning from military duty face. The book was great and I can't wait to read about the other characters.
