Publisher's Summary

I thought being kicked out would allow me to be free, but here I was, trapped once again.

On a dark night, Violet is roaming the streets - bloody, limping, and looking for a place to spend the night. Trapped by an abusive father for four years, being kicked out of that so-called home might have been the best thing to happen to her in years. Never mind the amount of pain she's in, never mind that she's terrified of what could be lurking the darkened alleys this bone-chilling night....

She's finally free. All she has to do is find a place to stay. Turns out she doesn't have to worry for long. Shadow, a vampire lusting for blood, is prowling the same street she's on. A hundred years after he was turned, he knows the drill like the back of his hand: Suck humans dry and leave the scene of the crime. But that night, Shadow does the unthinkable - he kidnaps Violet. 

Taken away from everything she knows, Violet is thrown into the world of vampires, creatures she believed existed only in her books. Convinced that her captor's soul is as black as his name implies, she desperately tries to make her escape.

The longer she's there, the more danger she's in. However, another mysterious force starts targeting her, and Violet's already fragile mind starts to fray apart. Who could be behind this twisted plot? Will she get out of this deadly situation alive? And when she finds the stuff of her nightmares is the only one protecting her, will she defy every common sense and learn to trust once more? 

Broken Wings is a vampire paranormal romance that's sure to get your blood flowing. Sink your teeth in this fresh, exciting listening experience!

Great overall

First I have to start off by saying that this book was given to me free of charge for a review of the audiobook, but as always, this does not change my opinion and will not determine how I review the book or the rating that I give it.

Talking about Cliches

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This book was so filled with cliches and actions that were so inconsistent with the words. You are a kidnapped victim and you fuss and argue with him. You are a victim of abuse and instead of leaving you go upstairs and pack then come back down and tell the abuser off. So many other instances that made me want to scream. Vampires are standing over her and she pretends to be asleep so she can hear what they are saying. This one just made me cringe all the way through. Realizing that you are kidnapped by a vampire and you say I think I am going to faint. Oh boy.

Unexpectedly good

This story was not what I expected but I enjoyed listening to it. The reader isn't a favorite. Once I got use to the narrators voice, I got into the story. There are some unexpected twist and turn. I like the main two actors alot.

What you'd expect... and that's fine

This isn't a groundbreaking, revolutionary story. It does have cliches, tropes, and what you would expect from the average vampire romance, but I enjoyed it. I feel the story could use better editing to shorten some parts and improve dialogue a bit, and that's the reason why I rated it 3 stars instead of 4. However, it was well worth my time! This author has potential and I will keep an eye out for her next books!
The narrator has a pleasant voice, and I feel my usual speed of 1.25x worked well with her.

Not my kind of book

I only made it 3 hours before I got tired of rolling my eyes. I like my female leads to have backbone and not to look at them selves as a victim. I mean REALLY 4 years of abuse and she stayed until she was kicked out 🙄right there I wanted to stop listening. I just could not get in Violet’s mind set.

couldn't do it

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, I struggled with this one... It was just bad... It was full of overused tropes and just felt shallow. The main character was just annoying. The narration is done well, but it just wasn't enough to keep my interest. After about the halfway mark I just couldn't do it anymore and turned it off.

Vampire romance

It is not what I expected at the beginning but this only intrigued me so I kept on listening but like other reviewers on here I felt it was too long and could be cut down.
I also hate it when the main character, especially if it is a female, does silly things like go to a friend who can't really do much instead of going to someone in authority. Why?
That is not the only thing, there are other things that I found hard to believe, however, even with this I liked the book.
As for the narrator, I had no problem with her except the characters are based in England so I expected a british narrator or at least the narrators voice to change. But we don't get this. so whenever, we are told that they are in london I am surprised.

Broken Wings

The narrator saved this story for me with on point pacing and easy to understand character voices. Broken Wings has a good overall story and concept however the execution is lacking. A decent editor would be able to turn this into a better read. For now it is just Okay in my opinion. There is little character depth and alot of the decisions made don't make sense. If I were reading this I would have skimmed or skipped alot since it was a tad drawn out in places.

Just Didn’t Work For Me

I usually like paranormal vampire stories...when there is at least some sort of connection..I just didn’t get any in this story.
The h has a mother who leaves home and the husband and daughter can’t figure out why...well Dad starts physically and emotionally beating up the daughter...wonder how he treated Mom?
When daughter is kicked out she lands up being kidnapped and held by a vampire who is also emotionally abusive constantly threatening to kill her or others..what’s the attraction.
I didn’t find the H to be likable at any point...the h basically not the brightest. Some of the dialogue was just silly..
The narrator spoke in a stilted manner that wasn’t pleasant to listen to..and I actually preferred he male voice...any dialogue was even better than the basics narration...She was the best when she was yelling as the father.
I just didn’t it enjoyable.
