Mark believes he is alone in the world. Rejected by his parents as a child, he spent his childhood bouncing from one foster home to another. The loss of his beloved little brother, Davey, makes him believe he has nothing left to live for. Mark finds himself on a destructive path after agreeing to help a person from his childhood.
A wager made by two strangers sets a chain of events in motion: Mark finds the one person he believed he had lost forever, while he desperately tries to get out of the life he has made for himself. Never having allowed himself to get close to anyone, he can’t understand the connection he has to Libby. Can Mark escape the life he set in motion seven years ago and allow Libby into his life, or is his karma fractured permanently?
I am a huge fan of Nancy Straight and have yet to be disappointed by one of her books. I absolutely loved “His Frozen Heart”, but I think the second book in the Brewer Brother’s Series, “Fractured Karma”, surpassed my feeling in the first book. Making it my favorite book write by Nancy Straight thus far.
Readers briefly met Mark Brewer while reading “His Frozen Heart”, but he was quite mysterious. In “Fractured Karma” readers get to see his side of the story. The entire book was from his point of view, and I have to admit this is only the second book that I have read that was mainly from the male point of view and Nancy did a great job delivering the story this way. Mark lived an interesting life and the more I read his story the more I liked him. Mark encountered many different types of people and formed many relationships on his journey. I did have my favorite characters and I did dislike a few. I also like the fact that the book had chapters from when Mark was 15 and 18, before diving into his life at 22. I think those few chapters really helped develop Mark as a character. I also liked that I was able to read the perspective of Mark from some of the scenes in the first book. I always wondered about him in those parts and I now know the answers.
I don’t want to give any of the plot away and I know if I start talking about all my favorite parts, that I will completely give away all the parts that kept me on the edge of seat. All I will say is I loved Mark Brewer and he is definitely a book boyfriend in my eyes!
The last thing I will say I cannot wait for the third book in the series to come out. Please, Nancy don’t make me wait too long!!! I have a feeling what it’s going to be about and I cannot wait to learn more about these Brewer Brothers!!!
