Nearly Broken by Devon Ashley Book Tour

We’d both gone missing at one point, but Claire had one thing I didn’t. Someone to notice. So why was I the one still here and she the one still gone?
Nineteen year old Megan Smith has spent the past year working in a small town diner in the middle of nowhere. Life is quiet, simple, safe. Then comes the news that her look-a-like has gone missing.
Still damaged both physically and mentally, Megan’s not looking to be noticed. Wherever she goes from here, it’s a road she needs to take alone. But when Nickolas Ellis takes the job as the new nightshift cook, it scares her how easily her defenses crumble down, down, down for him. But there are secrets she can’t bear to share with just anyone, unspeakable acts that continue to haunt, and when the similarities of Claire’s abduction couples with the fear of an unwanted visitor in town, the urge to run before it all happens again intensifies, threatening the only happiness Megan’s ever found.
New Adult Romantic Suspense / Realistic Fiction
Recommended for 17+ for mature and disturbing situations, language and sexual 

Normally with a review, I write a couple of paragraphs describing characters, motives, etc.  With Nearly Broken I find that I cannot without divulging too much of the story.  This was a mind blowing read,to get down to the nitty gritty you have Megan, a waitress who has a horrid past and is on the run.    She is all alone, until in waltzes Nick, he is a chef who Megan finds an instant kismet with.    Also entering her life is a girl who thinks she is her missing sister Claire, who she uncannily looks like.  Bottom line, what you think will happen shifts and it is something completely different.

This was a heavy read, but oh so good.  I was enamored by Nick, he is the epitome of hero.  Where Megan is concerned, wowza.  Rarely do you find a heroine who is so faceted.  She is a fighter, she is vulnerable, she is interesting, if you had a check box, she would mark every criteria of what a heroine should be.   I was completely absorbed into this story and blown away by all of the intricacies Nearly Broken had.  Highly recommend.
