Summary

“She was unraveling me, slowly but surely. I could feel it happening. Like she was gently unbuttoning the collar of a shirt that fit too tight.” 

Single-minded drive earned Roland Miles success - and cost him his first love. When his marriage to Zoe ended, he did the only thing he knew. He dove into work to put his heartbreak behind him. 

Zoe Sutton’s life hasn’t exactly gone to plan. She certainly didn’t plan on losing Roland or moving home to work for his family’s winery. Four years after their divorce, she wonders if her chance at happily ever after is behind her. 

After discovering his family might lose their land, Roland comes home to help sort out the mess. But between his brothers’ antics, a baby sister who’s all grown up, and a father keeping secrets, complicated isn’t even the half of it. 

And then there’s Zoe. 

He didn’t come home looking for a second chance with her. But the more time they spend together, the more he realizes what they lost. What they could have again. 

Because the truth is they broke each other’s hearts - and maybe they’re the only ones who can put them back together. 

Author’s note: A stoic hero who’s soft on the inside. A sassy heroine who doesn’t take any shit. Messy family. Lots of shenanigans. Mattress-burning bonfires. And a second chance at love with a big HEA. 

The Miles Family series is best enjoyed in order.

5*

The two had been together since school but things didn't work out neither got closure but could this be their chance.
I'm loving the characters and can't wait to find out more from them.
I've read the book and now listened to the audio and definitely recommend both.

Finding Your Way Back Home

It's not often that I read romances featuring married couples. It's even more rare when it's a second chance romance between the divorced couple. Interconnected family series are always favorites for me and the Miles family has some amazing characters that I can't wait to find out more about. Broken Miles is Roland's story and it was such a funny and entertaining romance. Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell were fantastic! Both showed their versatility and talent, voicing both male and female characters with ease. They were also able to convey so much emotion in their performances.

Making second chance romances believable and keeping the characters likeable is always a little tricky, but Claire Kingsley did an amazing job. Roland and Zoe's journey was at times frustrating, but it was also understandable and relatable. There's a lot of history between them and though I wanted them to hash things out and just talk to each other openly and honestly from the start, I could see how hard it could be to do that. Both have been hurt and are feeling vulnerable, so giving that much power to someone again is terrifying. I appreciated that they acknowledged the mistakes of the past though and actively worked to not repeat them. There's some delicious build up between these two and their sexual chemistry was scorching. Zoe was no wallflower, and I loved that she spoke her mind and didn't hold back. The epilogue (and bonus epilogue!) were sweet and hopeful and brought everything full circle for Roland and Zoe.

Family and sibling relationships play a huge role in the story and I have to say that Cooper (and Chase) often stole the show any time they made appearances. The things Cooper said had me laughing out loud several times and he was the perfect shot of comic relief. I'm excited to dive into the rest of this series (especially after the big family bombshell was dropped) and see how things play out for the rest of the Miles family.

This is a DNF for me

The story was juvenile. These thirty year olds act like immature college kids. The solution to every problem? Sex and alcohol of course. The dialogue was horrendous. I mean who doesn’t want to indulge in raunchy sexual talk with your 26 year old brother-in-law. I did not feel any deep emotional connection between the two main characters who were divorced and going to be reconciling. The story idea had potential, but was sadly left as just potential and nothing more.

Family Calls

Roland gets a call from his brother Leo asking him to come home, Echo Creek, WA because they are about to lose Salesman, a winery his family has for generations. Torn Roland decides to go and continued working for his firm in San Francisco. It is discovered that his father, Lawrence is the culprit as he more preoccupied with having affairs then tending the family business. Also there's the fact that Zoe Sutton, Roland's ex is working at the winery. With time Roland and Zoe connect again and Shannon kicked Lawrence out as they discovered that not only has he been having affairs, but also had two children with another woman. Grace and Elijah. In the end, Roland decides to stay home full-time and re-unite with Zoe. There's nothing sexy about Maxine Mitchell's voice, is like she is crying or something??? Joe Arden was good as always.

Beautiful Story

You know you have an awesome story, when it makes you laugh, cry, and get angry then pulls you back through with a warm heart being put back together again. The narrators did awesome with main and secondary characters. The story allows you to imagine that love torn apart can be be put back together when young love misunderstood, can learn the trials of communicating and repairing broken hearts.

Loved this Second Chance Romance!

Broken Miles by Claire Kingsley was second chance romance perfection. Roland and Zoe’s journey to find love and happiness with each other again made my heart so happy. I adore series that revolves around family, and Roland’s story was the perfect start.

Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell narrate this audiobook. Joe does a fantastic job of portraying all of Roland’s conflicted emotions towards his dad, towards Zoe. Maxine does the best job portraying how loyal Zoe is to the Roland’s family winery, but also her hesitancy to trust Roland again. These two narrators are always one clicks.

This book gave me all the feels and a few laughs too! You can really never go wrong with a Claire Kingsley story. She is an amazing writer! I also fell in love with the entire Miles family in this book, and look forward to more in this series!

Enjoyable story.

I love the family dynamic with the Miles siblings. Roland has to come back home to see everything he misses with his family and the love of his life, his ex-wife Zoe. Sometimes circumstances can push one to see what’s been in front of him/her. The author takes a different route with this second chance story, it’s the unique approach that makes Broken Miles an enjoyable book.

Great story!

Loved this story! It was really cute and sweet, it was a slow burn but fast paced enough you didn’t feel like it was dragging. Can’t wait to listen to the rest of the series.

Second Chance Love

I read this book many moons ago and I love the entire Miles Family series! I have listened to all of the other books in this series and after listening to this one I am going to go back and listen to them all again. Zoe is so fiesty and just what buttoned up all about making the money Roland needs. I love the relationship between Zoey, Chase and Cooper. Every woman needs a man bestfriend like they have. I like how Zoe was still part of the Miles family even though she and Roland were divorced. So many things I had forgotten about this book so it was really nice to go back and visit them all again.

I freaking LOVE Roland and Zoe!!

I love anything that Maxine Mitchell reads and I quite liked Joe Arden as Roland. Second chance romances are one of my favorites...Roland and Zoe's is one of the best....EVER!!!

Zoe and Roland were high school sweethearts who ended up eloping while Roland was still in college. While things were great at first they quickly went downhill when Roland was more focused on success at work vs a successful marriage so Zoe felt she had no choice but to leave and ask for a divorce. She was never truly far away from him since she works for his family's winery. When a emergency arises at the winery forcing Roland to go back home he must face what happened in their past and how much it actually hurt him when Zoe left.

The longer Roland is around his family and Zoe the more he realizes he no longer wants what he has in San Francisco....he wants to stay and he wants Zoe back. I had forgotten how soft of a person he was when it came to Zoe and his feelings for her. He sets out with a plan to make Zoe fall in love with him again and he is willing to do anything to make that happen, even giving up his life in San Francisco.

Claire did an spectacular job of reuniting these two and showing how they had grown as people in the four years they had been apart.
