My Review:

Broken Wings by Erika Ashby was breathtakingly beautiful! When I read the synopsis of this book I already knew that this was going to be an emotional journey. This is a story that kept me turning the pages until early morning and it left me emotionally drained!!! ***Ugly Cry Alert***

At this point of my review I usually include a little recap of the story. This time ... I won't. Everybody that picks up this book needs to feel every single emotion that Erika Ashby's outstanding novel makes you live. I'm writing my review with tears in my eyes. I just finished reading this phenomenal story and I can't fall asleep! This story was one of the most REAL, HONEST, POWERFUL stories that I have ever read! It was beautiful to see how the power of love healed these characters. Their journey was far from easy, but by taking it one day at a time and with the support of each other and their loved ones they were able to start living again. This is a story that will break your heart and you will, just like them, be picking up the pieces of your broken heart and you will be healing by their side one chapter at a time. Broken Wings will make you cry happy and sad tears.

Lincoln, Lynsie and Dax will captivate you. They will steal your heart from the moment you meet them and their story will linger with you for a long time. Erika Ashby's writing style is absolutely fantastic! The way she wrote this book, which is written in Dual POV, was phenomenal!!! These are all characters that you can relate to.  My connection with these characters was strong and my heart was aching for them. I had to stop reading because I could not see the words in front of me! You definitely will need a box of tissues while reading Broken Wings. This was my first time reading a book by Erika Ashby. I am looking forward to reading any previous books of hers and I can't wait to see what she will be writing next. I really hope one of her future books is one about Dustin, Dax's brother, and Echo, Lynsie's friend. I'm really curious to see what happened to them all those years ago. I'm crossing my fingers that Behind Blue Eyes, which is available to add on your TBR list on Goodreads, will be about them :)

My Rating:

I give, Broken Wings, by Erika Ashby 5 touching, beautiful, powerful, inspiring stars! I highly recommend this fantastic novel! 

We waste no time stripping each other down once we make it back home.

“You know what I love most?” Lincoln asks as his tongue dances across my bare stomach.

“Hmm,” is all I can manage as I lift my back, pressing myself closer to his mouth of goodness.

“The way you taste.” He licks circles around my navel, teasing my body in a way only he knows best. “The way you taste, baby, it puts every rainbow to shame.”

“Taste the rainbow,” I moan as his mouth continues its path down my waist.

“I plan on licking my way to your pot of the gold.” His hot breath against my inner thigh shoots a jolt of electricity through my body.
I giggle and moan all at once. “All yours, baby,” I gasp as I turn to putty beneath him.

“Say it again,” he demands as he nips and licks, teasing my skin.

“I’m yours. Only yours. Always yours,” I manage to pant before he swipes his tongue right where I want him most. My hands are firm against his head pulling at his short locks, holding him in place as he licks and fingers me until I come undone around his mouth.
He kisses his way back up my body and slides between my legs. I feel him at my entrance, but he stays put until he’s face to face with me. Grabbing me by my chin, he tilts my face up to look him square in the eyes.

“And I am yours. Only yours. I will always be yours,” he breathes against my lips before claiming them. His lips against mine are firm, needy, and full of passion as he pushes himself inside me.

I moan into his mouth as our tongues battle for control. He’ll win. He always does, but in cases such as this, I gladly accept defeat.

Being born an "Army Brat", Erika Ashby has been residing in Oklahoma the last 10 years finally putting an end to the nomad tendencies she had grown accustomed to. She's a happily married woman who has 5 kids between her and her husband. She has an insane passion for music and embraces her Inner Groupie any chance she has. It wasn't until the age of 29 that she realized she also had a hidden passion for reading; before then she claimed to have hated it. Six months after unlocking that deep desire she never knew she held, she turned the key to another chapter of her life which has become the desire to write. And the rest is still history in the making.
