REVIEW: Broken Fences – Kelly Gendron

Released: October 15th, 2013

Colden Saint James, Dusty Owens, and a single night of passion had equaled to poor old Mr. McAllister's broken fence. Add six years, a troublemaking photo, and there's not a fence in Texas that's gonna be safe...

It took Dusty Owens two years to land Colden "Saint" James, even if it was for only one night, but the very next day, he was gone. Now, years later, the "Saint" has returned, but he's no longer the do-gooder rookie cop Dusty remembers.

Dusty Owens always had a way of making every single one of Colden's man parts go all hard. He'd been so close to falling for the girl before he'd left Odessa. Now, due to a troublemaking photo, Colden must return to his hometown to keep her safe. Trouble is, he's a different man-not to mention the change. Well, it's gonna cause all kinds of problems where Dusty Owens and all of his man parts are concerned.

Although in all honesty I was not impressed with this book, the storyline was quite engaging in the end. At first, I thought that it was the typical love-because-of-hot-sex kind of thing, but in the end, Colden did make me adore his character. Dusty was also pretty damn cool with her independence and her toughness. 

I really, really wished that this book hooked me in but it didn't do me much. 

Yes, the characters were fantastic. I loved their independence, their love for each other, but I didn't like how their chemistry and romance were all so rushed. I wanted them to take their time and actually get to know each other. Especially, when the Saint left six years ago, he just fucked her and then disappeared. Not cool, bro, not cool.

When Colden challenged Dusty into that mechanical bull ride, I was really hoping that Dusty would win. What is up with the double standard? It's always the man winning these things. I know that it was essential in the story but I was hoping since Colden was so smooth with his words, he can manipulate Dusty instead of winning the thing when Dusty held the record. 

Just doesn't seem that likely. 

Anyways, I liked Colden though. Despite his southern accent, which I didn't find that endearing, he was that alpha male type. Mm-mm, and I love me some domineering males. 
Who the fuck is this Travis guy…and why the hell does he think he can touch what's mine?
Gotta admit, this scene was hilarious. A little, tiny, affectionate gesture and BOOM! He reacts. That was funny.

Dusty is pretty cool too. She owns this restaurant/bar on her own. She makes her own living. She's sweet but tough. My kind of woman.

Overall, pretty okay read. If you're the reader who loves some Southerners, you're gonna love this!

Kelly resides in a quiet suburb somewhere between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY. Her day job? Kelly works in health care representing a group of nursing facilities in the WNY area. She’s been faithfully writing for three years but did write her first book ten years ago. She put it down to raise her son as a single mom and then picked it back up when she and her son finally grew up. That's when she settled into her newly married adult life and started to seriously write again. She's dabbled with Romantic Suspense stories, but recently she's been on a contemporary kick. The recipe for the men in her stories: a dash of bad boy attitude, a cup of strong and confident and, of course, besides being packed with magnificent bodies, and doused with shameless aptitudes, they must have a tender heart you want to rip out of the pages (or your e-Reader) and take to bed with you at night.
