"When you meet a friend, you smile because you're glad, but when a friend deceives you, it makes you feel so sad." ~Bobby Blue Bland This is the third book I've read, written by Martha Perez. I'm always happy to feature talented writers on my website. If you haven't read any of her books, then let me say that her writing style is fresh and exciting. I simply adore books written in 1st person POV--it lets me know that the writer is willing to take chances and I'm in for something different. Alright, here's my review on Broken Heart: Broken Pieces Book 1 What can you do with a broken heart? When you have a headache, you can take an aspirin and power through the pain. If you have a backache a little rubbing will see you through, but when you got a broken heart, there’s nothing you can do. Nothing. Do you hear me? Nothing you can do. I know from experience when you fall in love, something is sure to break your heart. It takes a little time, and you can love again. But when Abby broke Rick’s heart he didn’t have time to suffer through another heartache and his life goes out of control. I like this book from beginning to the end. It’s written in a stream of consciousness style and in first and third person POV which is fresh and exciting to read. I rated the book in the following categories: Style 5, Plot 5, Rhythm & Flow 5, Background 5, Ease of reading 5. Overall rating 5. I read all the books in the series and highly recommend all of them. I can't wait for the next book from this talented author.

Hope can carry us through the darkness. Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase A traumatic story of child neglect, family abuse and then finally hope. Abby and Megan are young and at the mercy of their family’s penchant for drinking, wandering off or simply ignoring their duties to their children. When things become frustrating for the adults they hit or simply leave for days on end. This story was indeed a sad one, but achingly realistic and told with an unusual point of view. From first to third and then back again. At first, I was unsure who was speaking and realized that Abby very often saw herself in a third or external viewpoint, after she survived yet another emotional hurdle. A different use of voice, but effective to bring us closer to the emotional cost of such a life. At the importance of a story like this being told with such honesty, I am overwhelmingly compelled to give it five stars. This text has the potential to give hope to so many children and adults who have gone through what Abby and Megan experienced. The real standout of this story for me was the honesty, the hope and the amazing resilience of Abby to find her own way no matter what. While still retaining her sense of humanity and telling us with her actions, that hope can carry us through the darkness.
Most short story books are like a kiss in the dark from a stranger; you never know what you are going to get. That’s not the case with “In The Dark by Martha Perez.” The book is a treasure trove of stories you can read and enjoy while relaxing at the beach, taking a lunch break, or standing in line at the grocery store. The author has honed and crafted her writing skills remarkably well. She has a unique style, rhythm, and sound, unlike anything I’ve ever read. This is a one of a kind book, a collection of dark tales that will take you to some uncomfortable places—and strike many emotions. My two favorite stories are The Boathouse, and What If—the characters' lives are on the verge of imploding in some bizarre ways and will keep you turning pages. The stories will leave the reader to mull over the dramatic endings. I wish I could give this book 100 Stars but I’m limited to only five so Five Stars it is. And for what it’s worth which is probably not much to anybody but me, I’ve also added Martha Perez to a short list of my favorite authors.
5.0 out of 5 stars plenty of thrills along the way! I am a huge fan of Author Martha Perez and I was intrigued to discover that she had teamed up with fellow Author M LeMont as I had previously enjoyed their work on ‘As Fate Would Have It.’ This book is filled with a mix of suspense, unexpected twists and turns, sex and plenty of thrills along the way. Without revealing spoilers I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Bad Boys’, ‘The Old Creepy Cabin’ delivered as promised and ‘Two Little Girls’ was emotive and heart-wrenching. But also to say that all the stories made for a good read which is why I feel it deserves a 5-star rating. Overall, I really enjoyed this collection of short stories and clearly, the collaboration between these two authors is something that I would like to see again.
1 of 5 stars A Sizzling Story of Erotica Romance Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase Erotica Romance at its hottest! Emily is a torn woman regretting her past for having bullied a girl named Abby. Her true love, Josh, never forgives her for mistreating Abby. When he loses Abby to another man, Josh, and his best friend, Trevor, go on a series of escapades involving sex with any willing woman, drugs, and alcohol. But Emily is determined to have her man and will stop at nothing to win his heart and love. What follows is a love triangle involving friends, family, and desires that lead to 'Broken Dreams.' This is one of the first Erotica Romance I've read, and it's shown me what I've been missing. Martha Perez' characters are vivid and real. Their lives are tragic and triumphant. The experiences can be related to the famous quote, "Be careful what you wish for, because you may get it." All too often what we wish for is nothing like we imagined. 'Broken Dreams' is written with romantic imagination and sizzling sex scenes leaving you aching for more!
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase 5.0 out of 5 stars A tale of love, desperation, abuse & redemption This is a tale of broken dreams and much more. Some people are so broken they can’t seem to change their lives. Instead they drown in their own desperation. This story, revolves around Betty and the treadmill of emotions involved in her relationships. She’s an abuse victim who kept taking two steps back for everyone one taken forward. She accepted her destiny for a one-sided love and her children. She soon learned you can’t change someone’s mindset just because you love them, thinking that will change your circumstances. After years of abuse she had to make a life-altering decision. With the support of others (family and a women’s support group) she finally does. But one final question remained. Would she fall back into her old life of acceptance or finally cut the ties of abuse? This is an account of love, desperation, physical and mental abuse, and survival.

A great book, written by a very talented author. Broken Dreams is fresh and exciting, not your everyday run of the mill book. I couldn’t put it down even if I wanted to–definitely a page turner. It captures your attention from opening scene as Josh describes how his life changed after he lost his brother. “I chose my life drinking, doing drugs, and effing different women.” He figured that he could do whatever he wanted and wouldn’t change for anyone, considered himself a “cocky bastard.” This leads him down a road of misery and pain. It’s written in First Person POV, 3 lead characters, in a stream of consciousness style which I simply adore. The plot drags you deep into the twisted and dysfunctional lives of Emily, Josh, and Trevor, and leaves you in tears while wanting more. Real life drama, touching & heartfelt with a tantalizing touch of sex that keeps things a bit ... interesting. BRILLIANT, FRESH, EXCITING, a TRUE MASTERPIECE. I highly recommend it. 5 Big Stars.
My dear Martha I am very happy to have had the opportunity to talk with you and your husband last Saturday. Very rarely do we have the opportunity to talk with a great author as you are. I hope to have the great pleasure of being able to see you again as soon your next book comes out. God Bless You!
5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars Format: Paperback Verified Purchase An excellent read. Poignant and truthful. Recommend it easily.
Dealing with the frailty and at the same time resilience of the human soul! Rick hasn’t found contentment, and it’s possible he may never. He strives for peace of mind, even though he has lost his sibling, Scott and of course Abby, all within a short time span. Being an alcoholic and a sex addict, Rick struggles with his existence. After a period of elated elevations, his well-being tumbled to the rock bottom pit of misery. Succeeding her much-admired ‘Broken Pieces’ first novel, ‘Broken Heart’ is the sequel of author, Martha Perez beloved series. With a dynamic story-line, characters that are attractive, likeable and relatable, this is an emotional roller-coaster of a tale, dealing with the frailty and at the same time resilience of the human soul.
From a man's point of view, this was an amazing story. To be brought into this world and having to deal with physical and emotional abuse. And to have the strength to continue and not give up is just amazing. And to find love in her life is just an awesome twist. In my opinion definitely worth reading. Two thumbs up. Wade Bell
