Review/ Exerpt Tour & Giveaway: ALL BROKE DOWN by Cora Carmack

Hey Everyone! I am thrilled to bring to you today my blog tour stop on the All Broke Down Review/ Exerpt tour! Today I give to you my review, and share with you my thoughts on the latest Cora Carmack book! Which I could not be more excited to share! 

But first lets get to know a little bit about the book, just in case you are new to my blog and have no idea who Cora Carmack is, what All Broke Down ,and the Rusk University series is about! 



In this second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack’s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with All Lined Up, a young woman discovers that you can’t only fight for what you believe in . . . sometimes you have to fight for what you love

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.

Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians—you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and infuriating, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before—fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.

Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.

So now that we know about the book and before we hear my thoughts, lets learn about the author!


About Cora Carmack:

Cora Carmack is a twenty-something writer who likes to write about twenty-something characters. She's done a multitude of things in her life-- boring jobs (like working retail), Fun jobs (like working in a theatre), stressful jobs (like teaching), and dream jobs (like writing). She enjoys placing her characters in the most awkward situations possible, and then trying to help them get a boyfriend out of it. Awkward people need love, too. Her first book, LOSING IT, was a New York Times and USA Today bestseller.




 Where to start with the review!...haha. As you all know I'm part of Cora's street team and I could not be happier to share my thoughts with you! 

The book starts out great!  You have Silas the bad boy, and Dylan the activist for all lost causes. They are pretty much thrown together.  And in the strangest of all places JAIL! 

From the moment that these two meet you can just feel the chemistry. You know they are attracted to eachother because they a polar opposites.  Or at least they feel that they are. And maybe in some ways...yea they are.

However where it matters most is where they are the same. They both have the biggest hearts, and they are not afraid to fight for what they believe or the people they care for the most.

And in true Cora fashion,  she was able to create two characters and suck us into their world.  I loved the plot and storyline of this book.  It was original and believable. 

The graphic below is one of my favorite quotes.

Speaking of quotes, this book is not lacking in amazing one liners. As well as awkward moments. Cora Carmack has a gift with being a master at creating both. 

With all that being said. There is a part of the book, more towards the end. That I will not mention because I don't want to ruin any part of the book. I was quite shocked by this, Cora has definitely hit home with something that sad to say, a lot of college campuses deal with.  I know that she is going to do it justice.  I was just left feeling that I needed more closure or something with Silas & Dylan. I just needed/ wanted more! 

Overall this was another amazing Cora Carmack novel! So I give this a good 4.5 out 5 stars! 

 Can not wait till the 3rd book in the series comes out sometime next year. So keep your  eyes peeled for All Played out, and get your hands on a copy of All Broke Down TODAY!!!
