Posted on October 5, 2021 by Nadene @ Totally Addicted to Reading in Reviews / 10 Comments

📚Broken Sparrow is the first book in the brand new Open Road Series. It is by a new to me author I wanted to try out for sometime now and when I saw this book was available for review  I signed up for the tour and besides I mood for  a good MC romance. Also, the cover played a pivotal role in my choice to read and review 📚Broken Sparrow.

A chance encounter. An unlikely hero.
Morris has always dedicated himself to his brothers in the MC, choosing the freedom of the open road over the monotony of family life. But a chance encounter with a single mother on the run causes his protective alpha instincts to kick into overdrive.
Alice Sparrow thought she had planned her escape perfectly, but everything that could go wrong, did. Bank account emptied. Broken-down car. No place to stay. But when she bumps into a handsome biker, she doesn’t have the luxury of walking away from his help, especially when she must keep her daughter safe.
What is supposed to be a simple act of kindness quickly turns into something bigger and more complicated than either expects…especially when it comes to matters of the heart.
Broken Sparrow is a steamy age-gap, single mother, hot biker standalone romance that's guaranteed to bring the steam and the feels.

A good time was had with this quick and charming story. It may not have blown me away, but it provided the perfect escape when I needed it most.  📚Broken Sparrow is a combination of motorcycle and age gap romance. The hero (Morris) at 45 years is seventeen years older than the heroine (Alice).   

Alice and her six-year-old daughter are on the run from her abusive ex-husband. During her getaway, she had a chance encounter with a tattooed, sexy biker at a gas station. He provided her with some financial help, which she reluctantly accepted and gave her his number in the event she needed further help. With no plans to use the number, she went along with her plan of escape. But when her car broke down on the highway, calling Morris was her only recourse. 

📚Broken Sparrow reeked of insta love, which is not necessarily a bad thing. However, in this situation, I found it unrealistic given the circumstances. The heroine makes poor choices in men, while the hero wasn’t the settling down type. So for them to suddenly fall in love within a couple of days didn’t resonate with me. Aside from this, however, the story had aspects which I enjoyed. The biggest highlight for me was Alice’s ex getting what he rightly deserved. I loved Morris’s character, such a sweet soul. Calm when the situation calls for it, but fierce in protecting  those he holds dear. 

Overall, 📚Broken Sparrow delivered a charming story, perfect for readers looking for a quick read and a temporary escape from reality.

  1. I don’t mind this type of age gap, its when its over twenty years that I tend to struggle with it a bit more. But seventeen isn’t horrid. My grandparents had that age gap haha

  2. I keep hearing all of the good things about this author here and just haven’t picked her up yet. I do think that its good to understand that this is a good escape but isn’t going to “wow” one.

  3. Great review. I can understand your feelings given the situation and instalove. I’m not sure it would happen that way either but hey tough situations sometimes have people doing crazy stuff!!
