The Broken One by Ruth Cardello

In New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello’s sexy and emotional romance, a billionaire dares to invest in the riskiest proposition of his life: a second chance at love.

Single mom Heather Ellis would do anything for her adopted daughter, Ava. Even post an online reward for anyone who found the girl’s lost stuffed animal. Who’d have guessed it’d be returned by a drop-dead-sexy man with such sadness in his eyes that she had to reach out to him? To Ava, he’s a hero. To Heather, he’s a fantasy that puts at risk the happy life she’s made for herself.

It’s been five years since billionaire developer Sebastian Romano lost his wife and unborn child in a tragic accident. Now he’s all business. No room for emotion. Until he stumbles across that damn stuffed wolf and the beautiful single mother looking for it. Is he ready to give love a second chance?

But there’s more to Sebastian, his family, and his past than Heather knows. More than even Sebastian knows. Will the life they’re building together be challenged when the truth is finally revealed?

This is the first in a new series, but links to earlier ones if you are a Cardello faithful. The Corisi links are, I am guessing, going to be revealed as we progress through the series – as they weave through the Romano story.

Undoubtedly this is a very sweet and chemistry driven romance, but it is also full of wonderful humour – I laughed many times at the funny things which (mainly) Heather said, although Sebastian's brothers are good sources too. Usually not intentionally funny, they were fabulous at balancing out the dark which had enveloped Sebastian for far too long. Heather's best friend, Erica, is a great side character and, with her children in tow, she is the vision of normality. I did laugh at the description of the rooms in the house where the two first meet up... I dare you not to create a picture in your mind!

There is not really a good sense of time in the book, mention of a week here and a week there, which sort of makes it seem rather a rushed realisation of their love for each other, but I have a feeling that it worked because once Sebastian woke up, he had no need to be uncertain.

This is a good start to a new series, sets the family dynamics of the Romanos well, and gives us a very enjoyable romance too.
