Summary

The moment those words come out of the doctors mouth, I feel sick. So sick. The life I have dreamed of obliterated. And Brody. God, Brody. How will he look at me? How can he accept me? He'll know what I hid from him. He'll know everything. It's over. It's completely over. I can't tell him "I love Us" anymore. Even though I do. Even though it will kill me. I can't tell him anything. Everything is ruined. Pummeled. Broken. I have to leave him. I have to give up us. I know he'll come after me. I just have to do something to make him not want to.

Heartbreakingly beautiful.

Following Fin's life altering news in book 1 we follow her as she leaves Brody behind and flees to London to make a new life for herself. So many angsty moments when I wanted to slap her around the head and tell her to sort her life out. As much as I fell in love with Liam, my heart too belonged to Brody. I'm loving all the London Lovers characters, each bringing their own personality to the storyline. Brody turns up in London (at this point I thought all was right in the world), then wham! Fin finally opens up to him and he spits his dummy out and runs (okay flies) back to the States, leaving me yet again wanting to slap someone (this time namely Brody). A beautifully written love story that had me in tears in places. Even though I may not appear to be sympathetic to their feelings during this emotional rollercoaster, I really do feel for them both. So emotional, and so very beautiful, touching on some very real situations.

a good next step in the story of Fin and Brody.

I was gifted this book for an honest review.
This is a straight continuation from the first book and I spent a lot of it being so frustrated at Fin's actions but having never been through what she was going through who am I to judge. Just like her friends and family tried to support her as much as she would let them. the topic of infertility may be tough for some readers but it is handled so well in multiple storylines throughout the book. As with her other books the supporting characters gave light relief when needed as well as just being great by themselves.
Their story is not yet finished but there is no major cliffhanger at the end of this book as their was with book 1.
The narration was good and the characters were individual. Even the English accents were mostly done well by the American narrator.
Looking forward to hear what book 3 in the series brings.

Another Excellent audio in the London Lovers!

A Broken Us takes us right back to where Becoming Us ended and is an excellent continuation, moving us where we want to go - London and its mad cast of characters. The book was very emotional with some very rough roads for Finley and Brody. I really appreciate Amy Daws' writing and her realism. The end of every book shouldn't always be tied up with a perfect bow on it and she appreciates that. Sometimes your HEA isn't the story you've written for yourself, but the one that finds you and shows you a new way to peace and joy.

The narration was good, but the male voices need some work. Overall a great listen - highly recommend!

Not my favorite Daws book, but it got better...

The beginning was good and the end was terrific. The middle however did drag a little long. I am not a fan of stories that are dragged out because the female lead has a secret she won't share and holds that secret way too long. It seems like forced angst. I am so glad the the beginning was good and I stuck around until the end of the book though- the end really brought things together. It was emotional and beautiful.
Emma Lysy gives a solid performance. I think I would like to hear another book before I decide if she was a "go to narrator" for me. Her voice was a little rushed and whiny in places for the female lead but her secondary characters were great. The accents for both the male and females were spot on.

3 Meh Stars


I wanted to love this book… but it’s the same narrator as book one… I don’t know what it is about her voice; I just played it on 2.5x speed. I wanted to listen through because well I paid for it.

I loved Brody throughout this whole book. But I find he isn’t the same Brody described in the later books (which I read first and LOVED). But he is the one of the reasons I fought through the narrator’s voice. It’s not a bad book if you liked book one, you will like book 2.

Fin… I have a love, hate relationship. I just found her character to be selfish and maybe a little immature. No I am not heartless I get her struggles but she didn’t anyone in either. And that is what I don’t understand. She has this huge wonderful support system that would fall all over themselves for her, and she didn’t even give them a chance.
I don’t like one darn thing she did in this book. Well except when she is with her sister. Those were the best and saddest parts of the whole book for me.

Now please don’t think I didn’t like the book because I liked parts of it. I am not scared to give a lower star rating if I didn’t like the book.
I fully believe it was the narrator for me, and maybe that I didn’t really like Fin’s character as a whole, but honestly the rest of the book is aces.
I <3 the stuffing out of Frank!! As well as the rest of the crazy cast.

*All my Reviews are 100% honest and my own.*

A Good Follow up

A devastating diagnosis and an emotionally charge, life changing decision to move to London. More drama for Finnley and Brody. Finnley has the adventure of a lifetime but cannot get over her personal turmoil. Eventually, Brody chases her but when he learns the truth it breaks him too, but not in a way expected. It takes some serious time and a catastrophic event to do any kind of healing. This was definitely a more grown up version of for this series.
The narrator continues with this book so the voice and spirit depicted in the original is still strong.

Forever Loving Us

I was very happily surprised by these two books from Amy Daws that I thought at first,here I go, with the same old troupe of College romance. I thought that Finley had a terminal illness and that she was leaving Brody for Jake and was so happy that these two found a way back to their ‘us’, because I loved their us.

Can’t wait to find out where the friends across the pond find their own love stories.

Loved how you dealt with such emotional issues in such a heartfelt way Amy Daws, ♥️ goes to you and any women who have been in these shoes and feel your compassion for them shine through this story.

Back and Forth

Dang that one was tough. I think I cried through the last 5 chapters.

The one thing about this book that I didn't like is all the back and forth. It felt like every time Finley was willing to walk away was the only time Brody was willing to listen or fight for her. Any time Fin was trying to fight for him or their relationship was when Brody would run in the other direction. I really got tired of that.

An Intense Listen!

Holy secrets! I listened to A Broken Us on Audible and I swear that just makes it more intense! A Broken Us has Finley struggling to make big decisions in her life. Through a series of events, meeting people and twist that I did not see coming, Amy does a great job with that, Finley and Brody are able to work threw it all and discover that love will always win!

Very emotional

What did you love best about A Broken Us?

I loved Brody's demeanor. I also enjoyed the secondary characters. The depth of these characters is wonderful

What did you like best about this story?

I like the emotions of the story. Not a single tear was glossed over in this novel.

What about Emma Lysy’s performance did you like?

I loved her voice changes with the character and emotion.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Can the boundaries of love be broken by the consequence of fate?

Oh, the feels!

It's been a while since I read an emotional train wreck this good! I listened to the last half of the book on a long car ride today (with ear buds, since my son had his own audiobook). The poor kid kept looking at me and asking if I was okay, as my eyes kept welling. The characters are fun and lovable, and I am so enamored, I've already downloaded the next book. I loved the narration, though her voice sounded a little intensely enunciated at a few spots. I have already recommended this series to friends. I won this audiobook in a Facebook contest.
