My rating: 5 of 5 stars
On Broken Wings was probably my most anticipated read of the year ever since I read Fly with me, first book in the Wild Aces series. I knew all along Easy's story would be one of the toughest to read. First because I had really high expectations and also because I knew it would be emotional.
It's safe to say Fly with me did a number on me. If you asked me now I could say that it's still my favorite book of the year after reading more than 130 books in 2016. That book was everything in one. And even if the story is about Noah & Jordan, Alex "Easy" Rogers is taking a huge part.
I wouldn't recommend to read On Broken Wings as a stand-alone even if it's meant to be one. Some event begins in “Fly with me” which have a direct impact on Easy & Dani.
I was really nervous to start it. I remember I said I would start their story as soon as it hit my kindle but I didn't because I was a wrecked before I started. I knew this book would be emotional no matter what. I knew having both Dani& Easy together would be a journey in itself.
But Chanel's book kept calling me until the moment I couldn't see past it and I had to read it.
The entire book was utterly perfection. The angst, the love, the guilt was e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e
Easy has always loved Dani. He never meant to but he did. And he did it by himself, suffering in silence, taking what he could when he could, never asking for me.
Losing one of his best friends left a indelible mark on him. If you pair it up with the guilt he feels for loving Dani, his wife, it left you with a shattered man not knowing what the next right move is.
"That was the thing about Dani – it wasn’t only that I wanted to be inside her; I wanted to hold her hand. That alone, the simple gesture of her fingers linked with mine, would be everything."
Even if it's now a year since Dani lost her husband she can seems to move past it. She is living she's trying to make the best of her life but something is missing. The grief is crushing her and soon other feelings are going to complicate everything she thought she knew.
I devoured this book like I take my next breath. If there was one person who deserves his happiness, it was Easy for me. He always did the right thing, he was always there for his teammates but also for the love of his life.
Dani was a perfect fit for him and getting to know her better was pure perfection. The many feelings she has were crushing me and I only wanted to make them all ok for them both.
I’m sad to say goodbye to this wonderful squad! I love them all and beyond. I wish I could have more. I need more from all of them. I’m not ready to say goodbye… But I’m so happy and thrilled to see what Chanel as in store for the future. I’m so happy I can count her as part of authors I’m now expecting books from! So Chanel , see you next time ;)
