Since the moment Imani Prince joined the Grand High Vampires' legion, she's been drawn to the self-assured and darkly sexual Robert 'Butch' Richardson. Although he walked away from her a year ago after a short fling, she doesn't judge him for his difficulties with relationships. But now he's in her space, declaring that he wants her back and regrets his earlier mistakes.

While Imani's past is trying to interfere with the present and the threat of a war is looming, she has to decide whether to give him what he's demanding: all she has to give. Butch has always struggled to connect with people, but something about the sensual and independent Imani pulls at him until she's become an obsession that he simply can't shake.

But she was with another male, and watching them together was agonizing. When that relationship ends, Butch makes his move. Now he has to convince her to take a second chance on him, and he won't leave her alone until she does. As far as he's concerned, Imani's his and has always been his. He just needs to make her see that.

What did I think about Fractured?

Loved The Race-Against-Time Mystery As A Backdrop For This Romance.

Suzanne Wright has become one of my favourite authors.

I love Suzanne’s writing style, the pace she set for her stories and the gripping plot lines. The characters she creates are complex souls that exhibited all the traits that I crave. Sometimes the villains aren’t as evil as they seem. 😉 The vampire world that she has created for this series feels fresh and new, while still being totally credible.

I couldn’t stop listening to this audiobook.

Justine Eyre and P. J. Ochlan took the roles of our protagonists, Imani Prince and Robert ‘Butch’ Richardson. I enjoyed the variation that these actors brought to the duel point of view. Justine’s performance encapsulated Imani, whose personality shone through in not only the dialogue but the narrative too. Ochlan’s ability to produce just the right amount of “growl” for Butch and the distinctive accents for the rest of the legion was outstanding. Together, Justine and Ochlan transported me into the story.

While we’re talking about the characters…

I engage with a story more when the female protagonist exhibits certain personality traits. She needs to be intelligent, resilient, resourceful, self-reliant and have plenty of gumption. Imani had already been introduced to the series. I already liked her; she ticked all my boxes and then some. What we didn’t know what Imani’s past and what her life had been like with her sire and nest. I’m glad we learnt more about her in this book. Butch has been part of the series since the beginning but I was nervous that he was too closed off, exhibiting sociopathic tendencies for me to see him as a swoon-worthy hero. However, Suzanne knew what she was doing and did that on purpose, revealing Butch’s layers and hidden feelings through this story, while giving us a true soul-saving romance.

Fractured made me feel so many emotions!

Yes, I did growl like a wild woman at times in frustration and anger. Shedding a tear or two when things got too awful or damn romantic for words. However, the banter and humour throughout this story meant that I often had a soppy smile on my face or was chuckling out loud. 😉

Content Warning:

This book has sexual scenes, violence, colourful vocabulary and expletives throughout the story. Therefore, I’d only recommend it to adults who are not offended by content of this sort.

Fractured was a bloody good audiobook. I’d recommend it to adults who love stories about kickass heroines and the deserving alphas who fight for their affection. Adult paranormal romance fans who can read books with gritty storylines about and fighting for what’s right.

About Suzanne Wright

Author - Suzanne Wright

I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t writing something, whether it was stories, poems, or even songs – though I can’t carry a tune. I only have one rule when I’m writing a book which is that it has to have a happy ending. Other than that, pretty much anything goes. I write stories that I would enjoy reading and then I just hope that others will enjoy them too.

I was born and raised in England where I live with my husband (a person who doesn’t judge me for hearing voices in my head – how often do you come across people like that?), and my two demanding children.

As this is a review for an audiobook, it’s only right that I share the narrators’ information too.
