Contemporary Romance: Picking Up the Pieces
by E.L Green
Contemporary romance (MC element)- Picking Up the Pieces (Broken #1.
An amazing story of heartbreak and triumph as well as learning to love again.
A shattered heart. A damaged soul. A second chance.
A journey of learning to love again, battling to pick up all the pieces.
Ellie finally found her knight in shining armour. She thought she had her happily ever after. But of course, not all stories have a happy ending, and tragedy strikes in the worst form. Widowed at twenty-four, she turns to her old friend tequila.
Her best friend and fellow nurse leaves England to start a new life in Vancouver, Canada, but not before inviting Ellie to join her. Both agree this could be the fresh start she needs. A way to escape her haunting memories. Unfortunately, life has other ideas and throws Ellie a new set of trials. The biggest one being Kyle—“Prez” of the Angels of Death MC.
Kyle’s life is the MC… and his kid brother. He doesn’t do relationships. He doesn’t do love. But fate throws a feisty Brit in his path, with more baggage than a Boeing 747. Not only does Ellie manage to crawl under his skin, but she manages to unintentionally crawl her way into his normally stone-cold heart.
“He didn’t even notice my scars. If he did, he looked straight through them. I knew right then all he could see was me. All of me. My hurt, my pain, my flaws, my conflict, my desire, my love… all the craziness that made my brain tick. He saw me. Only me.”
Ellie finds herself on a journey of self-discovery as she not only has to come to terms with her past, but has to learn how to love again and accept her future.
Kyle has to follow his own path and realize he is capable of love and there’s more to life than the club.
“Who was I trying to kid? She was mine. She was mine the moment I saw her, packing my kid brother’s bullet wound in the middle of a hospital waiting room. She just didn't know it yet.”

Check Out What one Reader Had To Say Below!
I picked this one up on KU and read it in one sitting. I absolutely loved this book and gave it 5 stars. It's the author's debut book and all I can say is wow did she do a good job. Great writing skills, great editing, good characters and a great story.
It's a standalone.
It's not a lite romance because it deals with death/grief, child abuse, alcoholism, guilt feelings, etc. The author writes a believable MC background with the location being in British Vancouver, Canada and the h is from the UK. So when I read words/vernacular that doesn't fit in the U.S.
I was fine with it. The H is definitely an alpha-possessive male but oh is he so sweet, compassionate and supportive of the h. He does make one bad decision towards the end of the book but he redeems himself completely. No cheating and a HEA.
This story is not raw and gritty. It's more about a woman struggling with an abusive mother, loss of her husband and child and the deep seated insecurities she faces as she turns to binge drinking. Sometimes in these types of stories the H loses some of his alpha traits but this one was undoubtedly an alpha who was also supportive, compassionate and thoughtful of the h. It's not all about sex but more about real love and hanging in there even when the barriers seem insurmountable.
I will definitely be reading more of this author's books.
