Summary from Goodreads

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 content.

The characters

This book's heroine is Megan Smith.She's nineteen years old and she has been working for the past eighteen months in a dinner,keeping a low profile and living in fear.Nobody has any idea why a young and smart girl like Megan would work as a waitress instead of attending college.But none of these people have the slightest clue about what has really happened to Megan.She's traumatized and scared but she's also a fighter.The only thing she can do is move on and start fresh.That's what she's been doing for the past year and a half.But her plan backfires when Nickolas Ellis walks in the dinner and starts working as the new cook.For the first time she can feel again which terrifies her because it's like Nick knew her before they met.The thing is,is Megan safe now or her nightmare is coming back for her?I can't really say more because then the entire story will be revealed.

Nick's life dramatically changed two years ago when something so unexpected and brutal happened that not only Nick but the entire town will remember forever.Now,after all this time he has his first clue to find his missing past,present and future and nothing will stop him from getting the one thing that can make him happy again.


The book description informs us that this is a New Adult Romantic Suspense/Realistic Fiction.I believe that Nearly Broken could be a true story.Everyday on the news we hear all kinds of unbelievable stories.Well,this is one of them.This book is a must-read for everyone who wants to know more about this delicate matter.Devon Ashley did a great job creating a character that seems so realistic.Through Megan we can understand what really people are going through in these situations.Looking forward to reading more about Megan and Nick Nearly Mended.
