I was so excited to dive into the Corisi family again I love all things Dominic Corisi At first, I felt like Judy s part of this story was confusing and too separate But, once I understood where things were going, I loved that side part of the story Sebastian and Heather have an incredible journey to love I adored Heather and Ava The way they became a family was so heartwarming, and their relationship was so sweet and funny I loved that Heather did her best every day to be a good parent, but she recognized that she wasn t perfect Sebastian was a broken man, for sure I felt his pain and grief It was palpable It made him come across as a major a hole, but underneath all that, he was a good person The way Heather and Sebastian meet was so unique and sweet Their attraction was evident from the start, and I enjoyed their back n forth It took them awhile to figure things out with each other, and it was fun ride getting there I am very excited for Judy s quest to find of the Corisi family I think it will be a bumpy road, but worth it. The Broken One is an absolute perfect title for this story The author has an amazing ability to write stories that grab you by the heartstrings and yet have you laughing with the very next sentence She writes such beautiful stories of family, strength, and loyalty and of course a romance with all the sighs in just the right places Sebastian and Heather s story is one I won t forget for a long time because there is such a heartbreaking brokenness to Sebastian that it took not only Heather to bring him to himself again but also a very special little girl named Ava The conversations between Heather s best friend, Erica and her assistant, Terri are off the charts hilarious I shed tears and had lots of laughs while reading this wonderful story of a second chance for a very deserving hero This is also the first book in what appears to be another hit series for this author I received an ARC from Netgally for an honest review, which I have provided. And the legacy continues The Corisi adventures began with a domineering rogue and his surprise Cinderella To be perfectly honest Dominic and Abby were the start of my love affair with author Ruth Cardello Six years later and numerous favorites and my heart still belongs to this unforgettable couple The Broken One allowed me to revisit a few of my favorite characters, while introducing a new generation and reacquainting hearts with a few overlooked facts This time around it s Sebastian and Heather who have hearts skipping a beat These strangers are the key to unraveling an emotion packed past and the start of a long overdo healing process With a captivating backstory, a heartstopping romance and a crew of adorable matchmakers, Cardello reminds me why I continue to adore her talent now and hopefully years into the future. OMG Ruth has done it again The part about wolfie being lost then found and all the share to find him had me crying I was one of those that shared the hunt for Wolfie post Can t wait to see where Judy s hunt leads Heather and Sebastian had me on page one of their story., Ava well what can one say other then what a fierce young lady I really hope we get of them all in the next book These families all around just pull you in Through tragedy can come new hope and new life just never give up on love De legacy collection, familia corisi Oh my, oh my, oh my how I loved this book Ruth Cardello has written an amazing story Page after page I fell in love This is the best book I have read this year My new favorite.
