New Release+Review: Broken Clocks by Danielle Allen

Broken Clocks by [Allen, Danielle]

According to my grandma, a broken clock being right twice a day meant that in any given situation, perfect timing only happens twice.

I fell for William Grayson in a matter of minutes. The connection between us was undeniable, but our timing was off. I was dating someone and by the time I was single again, he was taken. And a year later, when we finally got together, it was clear that we were soulmates. But circumstances out of our control cut our time short.

We were a little older, a little wiser, when our paths crossed again. I was entering a new phase of independence in both my career and my life. He was growing professionally and moving to a new city. And even though our timing was off, it was still clear that we were soulmates. But for the second time, circumstances out of our control cut our time short. 

My grandma was a wise woman, but my love life taught me that there’s no such thing as perfect timing.

There’s just timing… Because nothing is perfect. 
There’s just right now… Because tomorrow isn’t promised. 

For as long as we’d known each other, William and I just wanted to be together. It was as simple and as complicated as that. 

Broken Clocks took me on an emotional roller coaster that I won’t ever forget! I honestly had no idea what to expect when I first started this book by Danielle Allen. I just found out about her in my quest for more diverse reads in the romance genre. I enjoyed reading about characters that I could identify with but I had no idea I would also find a book that would rip me to shreds as I read. I was stunned after I finished reading. Stunned. I had tears in my eyes as I typed this review.

Allen sucked me in with her writing from the very beginning and right up to the very end. I read this book in 5 hours. Her words were poetic and magnetic.  This book serves as a wonderful reminder of how we need to live our lives with no regrets. Reach for the stars. Seize the moment. Love and be loved. Take chances. This is a book that will stay with me for a very long time. Thank you Danielle Allen for providing me with my first 5 star read of the year!
