From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, comes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.
I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.
I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she'd believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.

Great first book in series
Book one Breaking Without You in Fractured Connections Series by Carrie Ann Ryan
This book starts with all the Knights sisters and Connolly’s brothers attending there friends Alison funeral after she committed suicide without a note saying why.
Cameron is an adopted Connolly like his twin brother Aiden and other adopted brother Brandon but after his adoptive mum and dad died and his birth mother called begging for help he discovers another brother called Dillion how now only 18.
Cameron tried to call his brothers to say they had a younger brother but non of his brothers answered his calls so his stopped calling so a lot of time and distance caused a massive friction between everyone.
Violet is Mace’s sister from Fallen Ink (Montgomery Ink Colorado Springs Series)
This book starts with Violets Harmony and Sienna attending there bff funeral and meeting up with the Connolly’s especially Cameron Violet’s ex.
There’s massive backstory and a lot of history between most of the characters but mostly Violet and Cameron and how they broke up but also how they develop their new relationship and not repeat old mistakes.
I really loved that this was all about relationships between brothers sisters friends and parents not too much drama and a great second chase story.
Wonderful heart wrenching new series
This new series, set in Denver, with the sisters of Mace (from Carrie Ann Ryan’s Colorado Springs series) and their friends and the Connolly brothers, has started with a heart wrenching and gripping book. This book is deep, gritty and real. It has tough topics that have been addressed with delicacy and sensitivity, whilst not glossing over the seriousness and deep impact they have.
It is a beautiful story, with amazing characters who show their difficulties, their vulnerability and the fact that they are human and make mistakes. It is also a wonderful love story between Violet and Cameron, as well as the love between sisters and friends and a family of brothers fractured by bad decisions, outside forces and neglect.
I really recommend this book, and can’t wait to read more in the series, as this is a beautiful, gritty and real storyline, with love and hope surrounding it, making it a ray of light in the dark times. Great job Carrie Ann, your sensitivity and artistry is greatly appreciated.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
