Blog Tour and Review: ‘Broken Road’ by Addison Kline




It is often said that time heals all wounds. The words are spoken like a promise… A vow. These words are said to people who have been beaten down to their lowest state. To the poor souls who have nothing left to lose. Whispered into the ear of a grieving daughter, told with a shrug to a man who has nothing left to live for.

These are dangerous people.

The down-trodden. The grieving. The ones who love more people dead than alive.

The words should never be uttered. Not to the ones who have no solid ground on which to stand upon, no rail in which to clasp. The white-knuckled moments of life have come to be expected rather than feared.

“Time heals all wounds.”

The words are an insult. A slap in the face… and around here, they’ll get you hurt. For Averi McClain and her husband Colt, there were few deeper insults.

In the wake of Black Horse’s death, a war has erupted. The Seventy Devils are scattered and on alert, gnawing at the bit for the go-ahead to strike. They would not hesitate to spill the blood of anyone who stood in their way of recompense. They knew they would need to act fast if they wanted to come out on top. Colt was not the kind of guy that you slept on. He’d stop at nothing to protect his family and he was lethal whether he was heavily armed or going toe to toe, bare knuckled beat-down style. Colt did have Black Horse’s blood coursing through his veins, after all. But then, so did Jimmy, and he is ready to show everyone that the apple didn’t fall far from the tree… in fact, they appear to have formed on the same poisoned branch.

As leader of the Devils, Jimmy had seventy miscreants to do his bidding – and three goals in which he needed to achieve:

  1. Avenge Black Horse
  2. Kill Colt McClain and Randy Ford
  3. Take Averi for his own

Jimmy has another thing coming if he thinks victory is easily won. Will Colt and Averi’s broken road end in tragedy? Or will they be the ones to banish the devils straight to hell? When the demons of the past rise up, can Colt and Randy face them fearless and determined? Whatever happens, don’t expect Colt and Randy to stand alone. Buckle up. The broken road makes for one hell of a ride.

Well she has done it again! Wow just wow what a great gripping read. I could not put it down – three hours and I was done. Same great strong characters and action packed storyline to get your teeth stuck into. You have danger, car chases, gunfights, passion, the strength of family throughout and so much more – well worth checking out.

Well this time round was a bit more complex as it was not just solely focusing around Colt and Averi. You had a great mix of the other characters from the first book, who play much more of a role this time round – Randy especially.

The saying it’s just the calm before the storm comes to mind with the start of this book. After Colt and Averi got married and found out they were expecting a baby things seemed to be going in the right direction for them for once. Especially after the death of Colt’s father ‘Black Horse’ they thought they were finally free from danger, but with Colt’s half-brother Jimmy Hearns (now going by Jimmy McClain) taking over the Seventy Devils chaos and danger are just around the corner.

Jimmy is as crazy as ever and has decided to take over from where his father left off. The first aim of business is to get revenge for the people who killed his father and to get rid of the competition – Colt – so he can have Averi for himself. To say he is delusional would be an understatement and after he starts taking more and more drugs he becomes very unstable, so much so that you can’t be sure what he might do next.

Averi wanted to feel safe and the only way to have that was to have her whole family away from the danger that still lurks around in the wake of Black Horse’s death. So she convinces Colt, her brothers Randy and Tim and Shelly to all move into the old Hall ranch together. They move in the nick of time for the night after they leave their old house Jimmy and the Seventy Devils storm it and after finding it empty Jimmy burns it to the ground to send a message – he’s coming.

I loved the flashed back scene as it gives you more of a back-story to the start of Colt and Averi’s relationship but more how Randy and Cheyenne got together. Including what Trent was like even as a teenager – you just know he was going to turn out bad. Cheyenne was Randy’s high school love they were together for over 6 years before it all went to hell. With her mother being married to one of the Seventy Devils she was pulled in to their world of drugs and alcohol. After getting hooked Randy broke up with her and only started to give her a chance again when she got clean. But one of the Devils – Trent – had other plans for her and now she is nothing more than a toy for him to play with when he gets bored. She needs Randy more than ever but after what has happened in the past doesn’t know if he will come for her. She should know better really because one thing you learn about our leading men in this series is that they will and have done anything and everything to protect the women in their lives.

With tensions rising, corrupt cops helping the Devils and the danger getting ever closer Colt, Averi, Randy, Tim, Shelly and their closet friends are going to have to come together for the fight for their lives. When you see what they are prepared to do to protect their family and land you get a sense of how strong a unit they really are.

Addison Kline does a great job of setting the scene where you feel you are right there in the middle of the action taking place. Even when there are a lot of characters all in one scene together you don’t ever feel lost; you know exactly what everyone is doing. You just get sucked into the story and don’t get released until the final page turns. A great story that shows you can create your own family, whether blood related or not, and bring them together. Showing the lengths they will go to protect their own in hoping for a better future for the next generation.

Blog Tour and Book Review: Black Horse by Addison Kline


Author : Addison Kline

Genre : Romantic Suspense

”What would you do if the only man you ever loved was the son of the man that murdered your parents?”

In Addison Kline’s fiery romantic suspense novel, Averi Ford’s future
collides with her past with ferocious intensity. Averi Ford and Colt 
McClain have loved each other since they were children. They both come 
from a broken past. Colt’s mother died when he was young, and Averi’s 
parents were taken from her at the tender age of five. The same man is 
responsible for both of their broken childhoods: Tom “Black Horse” 
McClain. He also happens to be Colt’s father. Now twenty years after the
 crimes that fractured both of their hearts, Black Horse is getting out 
of jail and he’s coming after the girl who testified against him: Averi,
 herself. Colt wants to hide her, but Averi refuses to run.

“Our past does not own us, and we owe it to our hearts to show the world
 that love can arise from the darkest of places. We just have to survive
 Black Horse to tell the tale.”

 Black Horse Release Date will be May 28th


Wow the cover alone will make you start drooling before you even start this action packed read!

I could not put this book down. Such strong, compelling characters that will draw you into a world filled with anger, hurt, guilt, action, passion and love. Two people brought together by pain and tragedy trying to find something good worth holding on to.

You have Colton that has the pain and guilt on his shoulders by what his father has done. He is forever trying to come out of the shadow that his father has created, to be seen as his own man, and not as the son of a murderer “Black Horse”. The only light he has in his life is Averi. She is the only person he would do anything for. She has been his friend and love for most of his life. He couldn’t imagine a world without her and if something ever happened to her he doesn’t think that he would ever recover.

Averi has survived a lot in her life. After her parents and older brother were murdered before her eyes at the age of five you wouldn’t think anything or anyone could pull her out of the darkness that would come. The only thing that could was Colton. He has been there for her whole life and would go through anything to keep her safe. Their relationship has been a secret for years as she doesn’t feel her brothers would understand that she loves the man who murdered their parents. She loves them all and is trying to find the right time to let them know.

They have both lost those that they loved the most and both by the same man. They both want to avenge those murdered and the only way to be free is to kill the man responsible for their pain, Tom “Black Horse” McClain. Tom “Black Horse” is a character with so much hate he can’t see why anyone else should be happy when he isn’t and will go out of his way to make sure they are not.

I like how the author takes you back in time to show you how events played out in the past to get the characters to the stage they are at the beginning of the story. In this action packed read you are taken on a rollercoaster of events. From gun fights to burning buildings, just what will it take to take down Black Horse for good. Revenge and action go hand in hand with love and sex in this suspense driven read. There are so many twists and turns that you won’t see coming but will leave you hungry for more.

A smoking hot read that will leave you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what will happen next. Would definitely recommend this book.
