Genres: Comedy. Edit Did You Know? Trivia Despite their characters having accents and being from other countries, Jonathan Kite , Jennifer Coolidge , and Matthew Moy are all born and raised in America and speak with American accents.

Moy, though portrayed as Korean, is actually of Chinese descent. Goofs Oleg only wears a singlet on his torso when cooking in the kitchen of Han's diner.

Dressing in this way would violate food hygiene regulations, which require cooks, chefs, and kitchen hands to be adequately covered in order to prevent hair and sweat from contaminating the food and beverages, however the quality, hygiene, freshness of the food, and overall cleanliness of the diner or lack thereof of any of that has been a running gag throughout the series.

Add the first question. No more teetering back and forth on the edge of the creative process and my own personal fear. Apr 15, Kathy Coopmans rated it it was amazing.

Every once in a while you read a book that you know will stick with you for a long time. Broken Girl is one of them.

The slashing words so eloquently written on these pages left me in tears at times. However, with a Gretchen book, you find yourself being repaired.

Those slashes healed and not a single scar remains. I would love to delve into this creative gifted Authors words with you.

To go into detail about the many things that Rose has dealt with in her life to get her to the point where she feels she cannot bounce back from.

I can't. It's one of those books you have to read to experience it all for yourself. To see the beautiful Rose that has yet to bloom.

I encourage you all to read this. Gretchen has a gift with making you feel every emotion. I'm grateful for being able to read this book and to call this her best work.

Rosalie Newton is a small rosebud of a girl. Her childhood should have been spent frolicking and playing with her friend Tami, but a wolf lies in wait to devour her.

One fateful day , he corners her and she's Torn. In seconds These Three words, just broke my heart. She turns to street when 16 , hustling on her Six Squares Of Sidewalk, that dictate her life "on the corner of I need to eat and Who wants to pay my water bill.

C , she's shy to open her heart for hope. First as a saviour, then as his laundry helper. They meet every Thursday in the laundromat and form a sweet bond.

One day the brutal reality of her existence is slapped in her face and she has to choose between the two recourses- to continue and soon be a part of statistics or get away and survive.

In all this turmoil Key Brigg is her moral compass and protector. The ending is not triggered but thought out instead.

In the sense that nothing triggers the change in Rosalie course of action, she thinks it through. Her quest to find herself is such a mature way of writing , I rarely see in other books.

The words are strung beautifully, the struggles of rose's and Shane 's hearts are so real that you feel their dilemmas. It's a very clear and well developed story and handled with care.

There is no clear villian per se but Rosalie 's life, her situations, her sarroundings are villians itself. Her baggage of her stark truths of her life choices becomes her 'Dirty Laundry' , and Shane the Laundromat Man helps her sort it out and clean it and carry it for her.

A Glimpse of Strength Jun 14, Wil Loves Books! You're soaked into the marrow of my bones, and you'll be there until the day I take my last breath".

This was an amazing read. This is one of those books that captivate you since the first word and grips your heart all the way to the end.

The tittle of this book is pretty self-explanatory; Broken Girl is about a broken girl. I know I say this a lot, but this is definitely a book that you have to experience for yourself to understand the story and the struggles of the heroine.

If I spoil it, then it would be a disservice to the author. I will say that this is not your typical hooker story.

It is more raw and gritty than erotica, something I definitely appreciated since I was not expecting. Rose stole my heart from the prologue.

She had such a hard life from childhood. Poor thing went through unimaginable things. Oh, how I love Shane! He was so great in general and so amazing to Rose.

The rest of the story you have to read to find out, but I promise this is a great read. Her writing is very beautiful and very engaging.

My only little complaint is that I wanted more! Regardless, this book is great. I absolutely recommend!!!

Jan 16, Abby McCarthy rated it it was amazing. Broken Girl is precisely that, a tale of a girl who has been completely broken. I was expecting an erotic ride and although you know she is a hooker, what you feel more than anything is that she is a woman and she once was a girl, a girl who was hurt.

There is a beauty that shines through all of the pain. Gretchen de la O shares her wisdom and her heart with followers on a daily basis through her blog posts, but in Broken Girl she shares it in an entirely new way.

ARC Kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. A tortured heroine, pain, loss, passion and ultimately love. Rose sells her body because it's the only thing she owns.

She doesn't expect anything from her dark life and she knows that emotion is not something she will eve ARC Kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.

She doesn't expect anything from her dark life and she knows that emotion is not something she will ever find.

Her dreams have been stomped on and now she knows never to invest on people. She sees herself as this broken girl that no one wants.

Prince Charming didn't exist in my world because there was nobody willing to invest anything more than money to fuck me. Her life and views change when a handsome, strong man enters her life.

Shane attracts her like a moth is drawn to a flame. But she knows that she can never be what he wants. She decides to hide what she is, but can she keep it a secret for long?

Follow our heroine on this difficult journey of survival, pain and love. I loved how the author skillfully developed this intricate plotline.

I loved that we get to know more about Rose as the story went on. Her mysterious Mr. C, the man who broke her heart for the first time, and all those who left her helpless.

Great story, with gritty settings and excellently written! I highly recommend this if you want something different! Mar 26, D rated it it was amazing.

I'm not sure how to write this review. There wasn't one thing specifically that I can pinpoint that made me love this story. It was a package deal sort of thing.

It was a "these words have resonated and seeped into me" kind of read. Gretchen de la O took a very sad story idea and made the sun shine on it.

Broken Girl had the potential to be stereotypical and cliche yet Gretchen worked magic with this story, filling it with hope and a reality that change has to happen.

Even when that change is sc I'm not sure how to write this review. Even when that change is scarier than being in a go nowhere, down-and-out situation.

She created characters that most people would love to judge or condemn and made you fall in love with them, to see their side of the story and made the reader want to cheer them on and wait at the finish line to tell them how proud they made you.

While reading Broken Girl, I could feel the passion and the sincerity of de la O in the words and while this is a work of fiction, it was almost like reading someone's memoirs.

There was an edge and rawness to the words yet they were draped with grace and heart. Broken Girl was a thoughtful read woven with parts of sexiness, angst and "shit is going down" moments- a well balanced book that keeps the reader invested in the story and searching for more.

I didn't want the story to end. If you've read a Gretchen de la O book before Broken Girl, then you already know she is a talented writer.

She found new talent, and something from within to make this an incredible story. May 20, Laura Lee rated it it was amazing. I spotted this blurb on facebook one day of this book that really caught my attention by a new to me author.

Broken Girl This book was so well written, had such depth in the writing and held me tight turning the pages from start to finish.

Throw in a couple boxes of tissue at the end and bam, you have a book that left you with serious feelings for each and every character in the book!

Well Done! Mar 31, Sarah rated it really liked it. I was honored to be able to have an early copy of Broken Girl entrusted to me by Gretchen de la O; it was truly a privilege.

Broken Girl was a very unique book. By just read the synopsis you may think that you know how it is all going to end, maybe even think it's a familiar trope.

I assure you, you're mistaken. I went into this book believing I knew exactly what I was getting myself into; I didn't. It was so much more than I could have anticipated.

More than I could have asked for. The chara I was honored to be able to have an early copy of Broken Girl entrusted to me by Gretchen de la O; it was truly a privilege.

The characters: Shane, Rose, Sybil, and Kean, were all brilliantly written. Too often only the perspective from which we are witnessing the story changes, however, Gretchen de la O was able to encompass fully the feelings of the characters in the words and phrasing she used for each character; this is nothing compared to the deep intensity of each character's personality.

I felt completely immersed in each of their lives and was left with the desire to know more about each and every one of them.

To delve into each past, to know every facet of their beings. For me, having that desire to know more than could possibly be fit in the pages of a novel is the sign of a well-written character.

Gretchen de la O starts this book running. The initial scene is so dark, so intense; it sets the tone for the rest of it. I was impressed that she never let up with that level of intensity.

Even in the lighter moments there is an undercurrent that is waiting to pull you straight back into the darkness. It is a rare thing for me to not figure out the twists in a book, and I was positive I saw the direction Broken Girl was heading.

I was so wrong; the book took turns I never saw coming. It kept me on my toes and was a completely exhilarating ride. There is a level of passion written into the pages that is completely palpable.

She was so loyal to each character and the intricacies of their personalities it was a breath of fresh air.

There were plenty of time where she could have taken the easy route and made this a flowery love story, but she kept on the dark and twisting road that was true to her characters, and I am a little bit in love with her for doing that.

Apr 18, D. Lorenzo rated it it was amazing. Raw and Gritty! From the first pages the words produce a mental image that strangled me with it's intensity.

Rose's story was heart wrenching. The secondary characters wore their wounds bravely and enriched the story with a pungent spice.

Although my heart was breaking with each chapter, I truly enjoyed being drawn into Rose's world. In my opinion Ms. Apr 01, Ellie rated it it was amazing Shelves: gretchen-de-la-o.

Review to come in the a. My mind is blown away by this book. Gritty, honest, in you face. That how I describe Rose.

She's a warrior. Life has continually knocked her down, but she doesn't go down. She fights, but she's built walls that are impenetrable Betrayed by the people who are supposed to love you unconditionally.

God, the things she went thru, it was enough to make me cry, which happened continuously through out the book. Rose wants what every one wants - to be accepted.

To be believed. That came in the form of Shane. I truly believe he came into her life at a time where he was necessary for her to not loose that last part of her that was human, capable of feeling.

He's a balm to her wounded soul. You couldn't help but root for them - for Rose to come clean about her life and what had happened to her, for Shane to knock thru those carefully constructed walls, for life to just cut Rose a break and give her that desired out from the life she was living on the streets, but most of all, YOU wanted her to not feel like that broken 9 year girl, who was so brutally shattered into pieces, never to be put fully back together again.

This book was unlike any other I've read - I felt as if I was reading my own life in words. I couldn't help but relate to her and what she needed to do in order to survive.

And while my life parallels to her - to a degree - the similarities are both striking and haunting. Normally, I would like to have seen an epilogue - but this book didn't need it.

I don't even care if her parents get redeemed, nor do I want to know! This book has the ending it was supposed to have, so very different from how it started and that to me was the most perfect HEA I could have ever asked for.

Jun 23, Paula Phillips rated it really liked it. Life hasn't been easy for Rose since she was a little girl as she was molested by a friend's stepfather.

Often when we read stories like this , we have an understanding about what road they will take and how they become so broken and damaged.

For Rose Newton , her life took the road of becoming a prostitute - though she took the route of being her own woman and not having a pimp or someone supposedly looking out for her.

One night while out with the girls , she witnesses a guy standing up for on Life hasn't been easy for Rose since she was a little girl as she was molested by a friend's stepfather.

One night while out with the girls , she witnesses a guy standing up for one of the new girls Crystal. She watches the interaction intently and he notices her briefly.

Turns out that he is the manager of the local laundromat - Shane West. I have to admit at first it was weird seeing his name like this as all I could think about first was the actor Shane West and what happened to him as haven't seen him in any movies lately.

Anyway, back to the story - Shane West has been noticing Rose when she comes in to do her laundry and is trying to get up the guts to ask her out.

Rose doesn't do dates and it takes a lot of persistence from Shane for Rose to agree for a meal which she does reluctantly as she views herself as the type of person that is never meant to fall in love.

Love for people like her doesn't exist. What will happen though when she tries to keep her two lives separate as she starts to fall for Shane and vice versa?

What will happen when both of them come crashing down after the death of a close friend and it turns out that Shane is a very good friend of the family's?

I have to admit I did like how this book turned out and that after her world crashing down around her moment, the author didn't have Rose go back to Shane straightaway as often I hate reading books where it feels instantaneous as you are like "really, that wouldn't happen in real life".

One thing that did bother me a little in this book was the fact that the author only glanced over Mr. Chadwick's packages and to what was in them as was hoping we would get a bit more of a present glance into Mr.

Chadwick's reasoning of still sending the packages. Jun 14, Annamaria rated it it was amazing. Five Emotional Stars! Rose has lived with some unbelievable horrors since she was young and she lives on the streets prostituting herself now.

Rose knows about abuse but when it comes to love and goodness she knows very little. Shane is love, goodness and decency, but when Rose meets him she is unsure how to act.

Rose's roommate is violently murdered, and Shane will find out Rose's profession, which then causes Rose to think about changing.

Can Rose go from the darkness, which is something she h Five Emotional Stars! Can Rose go from the darkness, which is something she has been use to for a very long time, to the light, which is foreign to her?

First I have to say this is a dark story, so beware there are triggers. I was caught up in the book from the first chapter and could not put the book down until the end.

The author has written a very emotional story with unexpected twists and turns. I will be looking for more by this author. Highly recommend!

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. This book was read and reviewed by Annamaria for Alpha Book Club. Oh Gretchen de la O how I love thee.

Is it possible to love Persistent Shane more than Max? I think I may need to go back and read the Wilson Mooney series a second time just to make sure.

I don't even know where to begin or what to say after reading Broken Girl. Gahhh not only did you make me cry once but several times.

I love books that make you feel every single emotion the characters feel. The way Shane talks to Rosie is so beautiful! I can listen to him all day!

I loved it! I'm gonna Oh Gretchen de la O how I love thee. I'm gonna squeeze you tight like Key when I see you again! I just want to be free, I want to give you everything I am," she answers, her body contradicting her words.

I want to believe I deserve you. May 23, Steph rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. Little girls who make men touch them are nothing but whores.

Rosalie Newton didn't want to be a whore. But the choice was torn from her as a child and now she's broken. She sells herself on the streets to disgusting pigs who call themselves men, vowing to get out when she makes enough money.

When she meets laundromat owner Shane West, she doesn't want to fall for him. But he wears her down with his sweet attitude and his lollipops and for the first time in a long time, she starts having hope that her life could be different.

Rose is broken, and Shane wants desperately to fix her. Can she let him? This is NOT a pretty, flowery love story full of sweet nothings and epic romance; it's gritty and raw and emotionally thick.

It rips you open and makes you wonder if your own long forgotten wounds can ever heal. Witness: Let's face it, life wasn't always about finding something beautiful in a heaping pile of shit.

I fucked for money; I made guys come because their wives or girlfriends didn't have the gall to do half the kinky shit their men fantasized about.

So their boyfriends or husbands found me on the corner of Geary and Taylor and paid a fistful of dead presidents to live out their kinkiest fantasies.

There was nothing noble or life-altering in what I did. I'm a whore. So that happened. And so much more. She made no apologies for her career choice…it was sell herself or live homeless and starving.

Shane doesn't change her worldview or priorities, but she enjoys him more than she feels she has a right to. I have to say I'm totally surprised by the sexless relationship between Rose and Shane…while respectful, the horrors that they go thru together seem to me that sex would be a natural progression in their relationship.

At the same time, it was this underlying adoration and love that permeates the book because of Shane's fearless love for Rose.

It was all very interesting, sad, funny in parts, eliciting the feels from page one. Bottom Line: This one is a true piece of passion, and it's simply flawless.

May 22, Dani rated it it was amazing Shelves: review-completed , reviewed , coming-of-age , dark. I have just finished Broken Girl and my emotions are all over the place.

This is my first book by Gretchen and let me say now that it will most definitely not be my last. I love her writing style, she keeps you gripped from the prologue as you slowly slip into the world she's created within the pages of a heart wrenching, but beautiful story.

Rose suffers a horrific event early on in life and this is how we're introduced to our heroine, fast forward years later, we find her as the broken girl she I have just finished Broken Girl and my emotions are all over the place.

Rose suffers a horrific event early on in life and this is how we're introduced to our heroine, fast forward years later, we find her as the broken girl she believes she is.

Not everyone will be able to read this since it is a darker read, but when you find yourself immersed in Rose's life, and how she takes everyday that life throws at her and pushes through the pain, the agony, and the mind numbing doubt, you feel as if you're either a part of her, or you're right there beside her.

Every girl, every woman has a little bit of Rose in them. Not necessarily what she's been through, but that self doubt, that part of you that never feels 'enough'.

As if you're not deserving of happiness, or love, because of your past, or the choices you've made. Gretchen weaves a story that makes you want to believe you are worthy.

She makes you believe that even though Rose is a broken, no, shattered girl, there is something beautiful in those fragments that her past has left behind.

That in those broken pieces of the woman she now is, that she can find love. The question remains, will she be able to accept it?

Or will the demons from her past convince her to walk away from the one thing that will bring her happiness? I don't want to say too much about the story, I want you diving in head first, blindly, because nothing can prepare you for the ride you're about to embark on, but I promise you, it will be well worth the ride.

This book has left me with emotion overload, a book hangover of note, and it is on my must read list for Loved, loved, loved, every moment of this rollercoaster!

View all 3 comments. May 01, S. M rated it really liked it. I read the blurb of this book and it automatically drew me in.

Rose is strong, independent, complicated, and broken. Shane is loyal, kind, sweet, and persistent. How can a prostitute be deserving of love? Especially from someone who deserves the best woman possible.

How can Shane look past her profession? This story was raw, complicated, and realistic. Even at the lowest point in life, it is ok to have hopes and dreams, and believe that you are worth it.

This was a great story with a great message. May 16, Kayla Melser rated it really liked it. It has taken me a little while to wrap my brain around the entire concept of the book and to figure out how to formulate what I want to say.

It is a beautifully written book that can help teach you how to put yourself back together after you have been broken. Rose is such a strong main character.

I can honestly say that I had a hard time reading parts of this book because of my past, however with my past I can understand how Rose feels and the emotions and thoughts that run through her head and why she feels the way she does.

On some level this book was very cathartic for me to read. I love how the author can string the words together and make them flow so beautifully.

Rose knows about abuse but when it comes to love and goodness she knows very little. Shane is love, goodness and decency, but when Rose meets him she is unsure how to act.

Rose's roommate is violently murdered, and Shane will find out Rose's profession, which then causes Rose to think about changing. Can Rose go from the darkness, which is something she h Five Emotional Stars!

Can Rose go from the darkness, which is something she has been use to for a very long time, to the light, which is foreign to her?

First I have to say this is a dark story, so beware there are triggers. I was caught up in the book from the first chapter and could not put the book down until the end.

The author has written a very emotional story with unexpected twists and turns. I will be looking for more by this author.

Highly recommend! I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. This book was read and reviewed by Annamaria for Alpha Book Club.

Oh Gretchen de la O how I love thee. Is it possible to love Persistent Shane more than Max? I think I may need to go back and read the Wilson Mooney series a second time just to make sure.

I don't even know where to begin or what to say after reading Broken Girl. Gahhh not only did you make me cry once but several times.

I love books that make you feel every single emotion the characters feel. The way Shane talks to Rosie is so beautiful!

I can listen to him all day! I loved it! I'm gonna Oh Gretchen de la O how I love thee. I'm gonna squeeze you tight like Key when I see you again!

I just want to be free, I want to give you everything I am," she answers, her body contradicting her words.

I want to believe I deserve you. May 23, Steph rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. Little girls who make men touch them are nothing but whores.

Rosalie Newton didn't want to be a whore. But the choice was torn from her as a child and now she's broken. She sells herself on the streets to disgusting pigs who call themselves men, vowing to get out when she makes enough money.

When she meets laundromat owner Shane West, she doesn't want to fall for him. But he wears her down with his sweet attitude and his lollipops and for the first time in a long time, she starts having hope that her life could be different.

Rose is broken, and Shane wants desperately to fix her. Can she let him? This is NOT a pretty, flowery love story full of sweet nothings and epic romance; it's gritty and raw and emotionally thick.

It rips you open and makes you wonder if your own long forgotten wounds can ever heal. Witness: Let's face it, life wasn't always about finding something beautiful in a heaping pile of shit.

I fucked for money; I made guys come because their wives or girlfriends didn't have the gall to do half the kinky shit their men fantasized about.

So their boyfriends or husbands found me on the corner of Geary and Taylor and paid a fistful of dead presidents to live out their kinkiest fantasies.

There was nothing noble or life-altering in what I did. I'm a whore. So that happened. And so much more. She made no apologies for her career choice…it was sell herself or live homeless and starving.

Shane doesn't change her worldview or priorities, but she enjoys him more than she feels she has a right to. I have to say I'm totally surprised by the sexless relationship between Rose and Shane…while respectful, the horrors that they go thru together seem to me that sex would be a natural progression in their relationship.

At the same time, it was this underlying adoration and love that permeates the book because of Shane's fearless love for Rose.

It was all very interesting, sad, funny in parts, eliciting the feels from page one. Bottom Line: This one is a true piece of passion, and it's simply flawless.

May 22, Dani rated it it was amazing Shelves: review-completed , reviewed , coming-of-age , dark. I have just finished Broken Girl and my emotions are all over the place.

This is my first book by Gretchen and let me say now that it will most definitely not be my last. I love her writing style, she keeps you gripped from the prologue as you slowly slip into the world she's created within the pages of a heart wrenching, but beautiful story.

Rose suffers a horrific event early on in life and this is how we're introduced to our heroine, fast forward years later, we find her as the broken girl she I have just finished Broken Girl and my emotions are all over the place.

Rose suffers a horrific event early on in life and this is how we're introduced to our heroine, fast forward years later, we find her as the broken girl she believes she is.

Not everyone will be able to read this since it is a darker read, but when you find yourself immersed in Rose's life, and how she takes everyday that life throws at her and pushes through the pain, the agony, and the mind numbing doubt, you feel as if you're either a part of her, or you're right there beside her.

Every girl, every woman has a little bit of Rose in them. Not necessarily what she's been through, but that self doubt, that part of you that never feels 'enough'.

As if you're not deserving of happiness, or love, because of your past, or the choices you've made. Gretchen weaves a story that makes you want to believe you are worthy.

She makes you believe that even though Rose is a broken, no, shattered girl, there is something beautiful in those fragments that her past has left behind.

That in those broken pieces of the woman she now is, that she can find love. The question remains, will she be able to accept it?

Or will the demons from her past convince her to walk away from the one thing that will bring her happiness? I don't want to say too much about the story, I want you diving in head first, blindly, because nothing can prepare you for the ride you're about to embark on, but I promise you, it will be well worth the ride.

This book has left me with emotion overload, a book hangover of note, and it is on my must read list for Loved, loved, loved, every moment of this rollercoaster!

Rose is strong, independent, complicated, and broken. Shane is loyal, kind, sweet, and persistent. How can a prostitute be deserving of love?

Especially from someone who deserves the best woman possible. How can Shane look past her profession? This story was raw, complicated, and realistic.

Even at the lowest point in life, it is ok to have hopes and dreams, and believe that you are worth it. This was a great story with a great message.

May 16, Kayla Melser rated it really liked it. It has taken me a little while to wrap my brain around the entire concept of the book and to figure out how to formulate what I want to say.

It is a beautifully written book that can help teach you how to put yourself back together after you have been broken.

Rose is such a strong main character. I can honestly say that I had a hard time reading parts of this book because of my past, however with my past I can understand how Rose feels and the emotions and thoughts that run through her head and why she feels the way she does.

On some level this book was very cathartic for me to read. I love how the author can string the words together and make them flow so beautifully.

This is truly one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. Apr 19, Karrie Mellott Puskas rated it really liked it. Gretchen brings all the punches in this book!

Have kleenex handy. I was a hot mess a few times reading this book! I'm not a fan of dark reads but this book is just WOW!

How she develops Rose, the trials that she goes thru to get to where is she today. How her past is dark.

Her wishing that her future could turn around. Shane is the glimmer of light. He brings her happiness. The book is one that is a MUST read. Apr 02, Janneke Wolbers rated it it was amazing.

There arent many books that take me on this extreme emotional rollercoaster.. And im glad i read it while everyone else was sleeping With that said i loved this book..

Just read this and let it take you on that rollercoaster Just wow! It is heartbreakingly beautiful. Great job Gretchen de la O!!!

At first I wasn't sure what to expect, and when this book about Rose started off so dark and sad I felt like I was in for a really painful story Only after she met Shane, her ray of hope for a better future, did I breathe a little easier, but it was still a long and gut-wrenching journey to get to the end of the bitter road.

This was one tough book to read no little girl should have to live Rose's life but I really did appreciate the thought and passion and honesty of OMG!

This was one tough book to read no little girl should have to live Rose's life but I really did appreciate the thought and passion and honesty of the author to write something that could have just been gratuitous sex and perversion, and turned out to be so much more.

A really good psychological mind thrill of a love story with some thought provoking narratives. In the last two years I have met Gretchen de la O at several book signings.

Each time I spoke with her she told me she was working on something very different and very dark.

She said it contained some very heavy subject matter and that it was a very difficult book to write. She couldn't put an exact time frame as to when the book would release because she wanted to get this story right.

She didn't want to take the easy road with Rose's story. She wanted to give Rose the voice that would tell In the last two years I have met Gretchen de la O at several book signings.

She wanted to give Rose the voice that would tell her story. Broken Girl by Gretchen de la O is quite different from the books I usually read.

It's a dark, gritty look inside of a truly broken person. It's a harsh reality with ugly truths, jagged revelations, and deep emotional scars.

This is not a fun, fluffy romance book where love fixes all. Quite honestly I wouldn't even consider this book a romance at all. It's a vivid portrayal of a young girl's journey into a dark twisted adulthood.

A lost little girl existing beneath the layers of betrayal, abuse,condemnation, and self destruction. If you are looking for light reading, this may not be the book to choose.

If you have hard limits in your reading preferences, don't read this book. Broken Girl contains childhood sexual abuse, violence, physical abuse, drug abuse, and self abuse.

It is vividly graphic. It has hardcore subject matter that is quite disturbing. Although most of the content is very dark there is also a progression to the light.

A broken individual finally finding the path to her own personal self redemption. Take off your rose colored glasses and brace yourself.

Rose Newton never really had a chance in life. Her childhood was horrific. She encountered abuse on every level. It's only natural that her childhood would lead to a life of prostitution.

Prostitution gives her the power to control the abuse. It's the only source of income she can earn to survive in a very expensive world.

She's not living in luxury, in fact she lives in poverty. She views sex as a means to an end, no emotional or physical attachments.

She's worked the streets since she was sixteen years old. She has no illusions of a grand future. She doesn't have hopes and dreams for the future.

Her life is pathetic. The few friends she has are people like her, living in the dark shadows of society. Their friendships are conditional.

Each of them guards their inner secrets, emotional demons, and past lives. Rose accidentally meets a handsome young man in a laundromat after he saves another prostitute from harm.

She's intrigued that a stranger would help a person like her. Her curiosity leads her to return to laundromat and to a reluctant friendship with Shane.

This is the first choice that will begin to take Rose in a different direction in life. It will be the first step into her journey of self discovery.

It may be her only chance at being truly loved. As Rose's journey begins to progress, her current life will spiral out of control.

She will start to experience real emotions and eye opening events. Rose has to learn to forgive and love herself before she can attempt to becoming a whole person.

She has to learn that she is worthy and entitled to love just like every other person. She has to find out who Rose is capable of becoming.

I admit this was a very hard story for me to read. I had a very heavy feeling throughout the book.

Some parts appalled me, others broke me. I did not find this entertaining but was fully engaged in the story. It was the type of book that was based upon some very heavy issues and dark subject matter.

What made me give the books 5 Stars is it's brutal honesty and realistic solutions. Gretchen de la O wrote a very honest, brutal accounting of a broken girl's life.

It's not a pretty story. It's a girl finding the glue to put herself back together. It's a lesson of self respect and becoming whole. Apr 21, Elizabeth Perusing Princesses rated it it was amazing.

This story is about Rose. With a name representing beauty, you would think her life would be filled with it. Sadly no, Rose's life is fragile and full of thorns that have pricked her heart and soul.

She is so broken, that if she wasn't as strong as she is, she would have been swallowed up by the darkness.

She is a prostitute. She lives in the dregs of hell that most of us will never know. She is a survivor! She has a broken support system who are all just trying to survive.

She guards her h This story is about Rose. She guards her heart because once, although she lives in a very cruel and real world, she opens a little window and felt hope, fell in love.

She fell for the fantasy that someone would save her just like in a fairytale Shane is a good man who meets Rose one night as she is in a back alley.

He comes to the assistance of her and a friend. Rose is stunned with him.. Those types of people just do not exist in her world.

As hard as she tries, she can't get him out of her mind. So she goes about in meeting him as her, just a girl, not a prostitute. They strike up a sort of friendship, he is relentless, but the secret between them is just too much.

She knows he would be disgusted by the fact that she sells her body to survive.
