My name is Savannah Miller.

My father is the mayor of New York. One day after my twenty-seventh birthday I was grabbed from behind. A cloth sack was quickly pulled over my head, and I was taken from everything I’d ever known.

I was beaten, starved, treated like an animal, and forced to live in a room with no windows. With no sense of time and no dignity left I finally gave up hope and made a promise to myself to end it all. 

Unfortunately, it was going to be a slow process.

Then one night an elite group of US Army soldiers came to my rescue. I was brought to a safe house and given two options:

One- Stay under their protection and follow their rules or…

Two- Leave and be guaranteed to be returned to the savages within a week.

I chose option one.

As I work with a therapist and begin processing my hellish ordeal things slowly begin to surface. With the help of new friends and a potential new love I fight to get my life back and make choices that will forever alter my future.

This is my story

5 gigantic stars!
OH. MY. GOD! Wow J.L. Drake is a genius! This book was so unique and refreshing and just so damn good!!!!! This is one author that you want to keep your eye on because she is definitely going places with her writing. I know it is hard for new authors to get people to take a chance and read their books, but please do yourself a favor and take a chance on her. You will not be disappointed. 

J.L. Drake has an incredible way of making you fall in love with her characters…whether they are the good guys, or even the bad guys. Each and every one just makes you FEEL! And gosh did I feel while reading Broken. My emotions were all over the dang place. Savannah and Logan… *sigh* their story is nothing short of incredible. They are without a doubt two of my favorite book characters to date, and they were surrounded by such an exceptional supporting cast of characters. There were quite a lot of different characters, and each one grabs you and stays with you long after the book has ended. I was a little uncertain on what to expect when 90% of the story takes place within the one safe house BUT let me tell you, there was not a single boring moment from page one, until I hit 'The End'. Perfectly executed!!! 

It's so hard to write a review on a book like this because honestly, no amount of words could do it justice. It's one of those things you just need to read for yourself. There are so many crazy twists and turns throughout the story that I never saw coming, and you just have to expect the unexpected. 

I have a Major book hangover after reading this story, and I am absolutely DYING to get my hands on Book 2. MAJOR cliffhanger… a super mean one at that lol. J.L. Drake, I applaud you on a job well done. I may be a little mad at you after that ending but you can always make it up to me by releasing Book 2 early…. like NOW! :)
