Book Review: A Broken Us

A Broken Us by Amy Daws

Synopsis from Goodreads: Finley and Brody live in their own little bubble of “us.” Instead of, “I love you,” they say, “I love us.” It’s their own perfect endearment to each other. Finley’s quirky ways are the perfect contrast to Brody’s scandalously sexy passion. But Finley’s picture-perfect world gets pummeled when she gets a hard dose of reality from her doctor that changes everything. Crippled with the fear of Brody’s reaction, Finley does what she does best—she runs. She breaks his heart and leaves behind a life that is just too painful to live. One international flight later, Finley’s best friend welcomes her with open arms in London and she is immersed in a new country with new experiences and eccentric roommates. Nursing a broken heart, Finley grieves for the life she left behind and attempts to embrace the new one she is creating. When a cheeky Brit named Liam, a self proclaimed “fixer” catches her eye, she hopes it’s exactly what she needs to forget. But when Liam wants to help Finley unpack her bags for good, she realizes that her heart is still back home…with Brody.

My thoughts: What if everything you hope for for relationship and your future is taken from you and replaced with a big "if"? Amy's newest novel opens your eyes to behind the scenes of how infertility impacts a relationship. "A Broken Us" shares the rare, real emotions of what so many families and couples on a daily basis. Like she did with Chasing Hope, Amy has the ability to draw out your deepest, most authentic emotions with her words and true to life experiences. If you are looking for your next favorite book, read this. You will not be disappointed!
