Goodreads Summary:
Staff Sergeant Matt Warwick returns from war with two broken legs—and a shattered future. Abandoned by his fiancĂ©e, he withdraws into a protective shell to hide from the pity filled glances thrown his way. His squad worries he’s fallen into depression, and arranges a 1NightStand through the renowned Madame Eve. Matt agrees, but fears he will not be able to satisfy his date, for who would want a crippled man in their bed?

Tiffany Forsen escaped a brutal relationship, and seeks to jump-start her life with a fling. Bars aren’t her scene, so when she hears of the fabulous 1NightStand service, she contacts Madame Eve immediately. All she wants is a night of fun with the hot guy in her picture—but winds up with much more. Can she convince him that when she sees him, she doesn’t see a crippled man…but a hero?

Or will his defenses keep her at arm’s length?

My Opinion:
Broken is about Matt, a broken man with a broken spirit, after he had lost the use of his legs in a war. His squad was worried about him and helped him arranged for a one night stand through Madame Eves. He went on with it but had his fears everything, just because he was crippled...

Tiffany was a therapist who had just gone through a bad relationship and sought the services of Madame Eve for a fling and then she met this man in the elevator that caught her attention...

I have a thing for Diane's books. I love her style of writing and the way she spins her stories. I got hooked after reading her "One On Condition". This story may be just a short novella but it has got everything packed nicely in one great package. Broken is full of emotions, both from Matt and from Tiffany, about their pasts and their doubts. Matt's frustration really stood out in one scene and I think Diane did a great job in Broken. This short read is great for some great reads at night before going to sleep. Recommended for those who is looking for great and fast, satisfying romance read.
