As a young woman, Abby Carmichael had it all—until the night a stranger tore it away…
A year and half after the brutal sexual assault, Abby is finally starting to feel like her old self. Teaching dance classes with enthusiastic kids is just the kind of job she needs—far away from probing eyes or vicious intentions of the opposite sex. When she connects with one of her students, Natalie, it isn’t long until she meets her father, Deputy Ben James.
Ben James is just a regular guy, working to make a life for himself and his daughter…
That’s what Abby tells herself when her sudden attraction for Ben catches her off guard. Abby has been steering clear of men for obvious reasons, and the idea of wanting that kind of relationship is more terrifying than intriguing. But with his doe-eyed daughter tugging at her dance uniform, Ben takes notice.
He’s ready for love, but does her past hold too many secrets? 
After the assault, Abby coped by using heavy medication and fell into an ugly chain of one-night stands. But now that she’s out of rehab and finally on the right track, it’s only a matter of time before Ben finds out.
Will Abby be the true love Ben has always wanted? Or is she a tangled challenge, leading to yet another…
Broken Love?

Diane's Review
 Evan grace is a gifted writer who can drag me right into the heart of her wonderful stories that comes out of her creative mind.  I received Broken Love  in exchange for an honest and a spoiler free review.

  We have Abby, a young woman who has been through a very traumatic experience.  In order to cope with it, she made the wrong self destructive choices that brought her down to rock bottom.  With the help of her very supportive family, she was able to climb back out of the brings of darkness in order to led a somewhat normal life.  When she thinks she will never be able to be in a normal relationship, she mets Ben and his daughter Nathalie.  Ben has also had his own hardship by being a single dad of a 3 year old.  Abby falls in love with Ben and his daughter.  Together they will complete each other.  But unfortunately they will not be at peace for very long, someone is out to hurt them.

  This is a romantic suspense with just right amount of angst to make this a great page turner.  It's beautifully written with a strong message of hope.  It's not only a love story but also about family.  It doesn't matter the race, the gender or if they aren't related by blood, they stick together through tough times.  It involves all of Abby's and Ben' s family.
  I admire the author for not going into details about some traumatic events because I don't think I would have wanted to read of them.  It's an amazing roller coaster of emotions.  Nicely paced with a seamless plot.  I love the characters especially the little Nathalie.  I just love stories with children, they make it so sweet and make my heart melt.
  The only thing that I had to be very attentive to was that some chapters or even paragraph switched scenes completely.

  Story told in a dual POV with a couple from Abby 's parents because the story was focused mainly on her.  It's a standalone with a very nice HEA.  I strongly recommend this book, by the looks of it, it's a great start to a series.  All of Evan's book are worth the read.

A Midwesterner and self-proclaimed nerd, Evan has been an avid reader most of her life, but five years ago got bit by the writing bug, and it quickly became her addiction, passion and therapy. When the voices in her head give it a rest, she can always be found with her e-reader in her hand. Some of her favorites include, Shayla Black, Jaci Burton, Madeline Sheehan and Jamie Mcguire. Evan finds a lot of her inspiration in music, so if you see her wearing her headphones you know she means business and is in the zone.
