Broken French Spin-Off

4.9 Stars

She’s going to make him break all of his rules, break down his walls, and tell her a truth he’s been hiding for almost a decade. And in the process, probably break his own heart.


I didn’t think I’d live another day. It’s been almost ten years since I escaped to a life I could never imagine. And to a man I can only dream about. Evan Roark has been my beacon, he’s been the man who’s shown me that men who are strong can also be safe. After almost a decade, I’m finally ready to take back my life and remember the woman inside me, the woman who wants, who needs, who loves, who feels, who craves
only hes made it clear I cant crave him. But I havent made it this far to make a new life only to fail now. I want him to be the one to help me erase my past and get over my fears. And if he wants to be all up in my space being bossy and over protective, and looking so hot, then I can’t help it if I’ll try anything possible to get him to touch me.


Nine years ago I asked my best friend, Xavier, for a favor, a way to keep Andrea safe. While I run security for him and guard his family against all threats, I can also keep her close. I keep her close, but never touch. But when she paints a target on her back by filing for divorce, I'm forced to make a choice, and it's her I have to protect. And now she’s calling my bluff, letting me know she’s ready to finally trust another man to hold her, to touch her, to love her
Its killing me. I want it to be me, but I can't be both her lover and her protector. If I give in, then I won't see the threat coming. I know what happens when I get distracted. People get hurt.

But she’s making it so
damn difficult.

What will it take to have them both give in to what has been there for longer than either of them knew?

Set against the back drop of Southern France in and around a tiny story book village reminiscent of Belle's village in Beauty and The Beast, comes a story of a woman who's life was stolen by an abusive husband, and the man who'll help her remember the woman she is inside.

Andrea + Evan
Before you start reading this book please read BROKEN FRENCH first.
Both are standalones, but all the people are in both books!
And this one spoils a tiny little bit in the beginning, because when Stolen English starts, Broken French is not yet done!

Okay. Andrea and Even. There have been sparks for years.
Both are working on Xavier's yacht.
Well, Andrea is the chief steward and works only five months of the year on the yacht and Evan is Xavier's security guy and best friend - so he's around Xavier all year.
Ten years ago Andrea got out of a very dangerous marital situation and Xavier hired her to work on his boat.
Andrea and the reader don't know exactly what happened back then or how deep Evan is involved with things.
Andrea just turned 33 and she thinks that she's finally able to leave the security of the yacht and live a normal life. She got a job in a museum and a cute little apartment in the little town of Saint Paul de Vence.
But Evan is not letting her go that easily. How can he keep on protecting her when she's not on the yacht anymore?
So he rents the room next to hers for the next few months.



I loved Broken French so much, so this book didn't have it easy with me. But I really loved it! It didn't have the same exact oomph for me though ... It had all the things. A super hot bodyguard hero, romance, suspense, sparks, sexy times, funny times, heartbreaking times, sightseeing times, adorable moments, et cetera. And I really enjoyed reading it and I LOVE Evan and Andrea so much. I just loved Xavier and his girls a tiny bit more.
Maybe it was Andrea's sad past that made the mood a bit darker. And also the wasted years made me a bit sad or maybe even somewhat angry at them.
But that doesn't mean that this second book was bad in any way.
You won't be able to stop reading - you need to find out how everything will end.

Like the first book, this one was pretty long - and I could say that it was a tiny bit too long with a few scenes or back and forth moments that could've been cut. But it's still all so very read-worthy. Nothing was too much or redundant - I could've read another 150 pages. But it still felt a tiny bit long at various points. No idea what I mean. LOL.

I would not mind seeing these two books as two seasons of a show on Netflix one day. With all the beautiful places and the eating and drinking and the hot guys!
From the beautiful cover to the last scenes in the final epilogue - this was a such a sweet + heartwarming romance with some very serious topics! READ IT!
STOLEN ENGLISH was such a beautiful + heartwarming + sparky + sexy + french + british 'finally' love story. Run to your nearest book dealer to get your own Evan - this one is MINE!
