The Broken One by Ruth Cardello- ARC Review

In New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello’s sexy and emotional romance, a billionaire dares to invest in the riskiest proposition of his life: a second chance at love.

Single mom Heather Ellis would do anything for her adopted daughter, Ava. Even post an online reward for anyone who found the girl’s lost stuffed animal. Who’d have guessed it’d be returned by a drop-dead-sexy man with such sadness in his eyes that she had to reach out to him? To Ava, he’s a hero. To Heather, he’s a fantasy that puts at risk the happy life she’s made for herself. 

It’s been five years since billionaire developer Sebastian Romano lost his wife and unborn child in a tragic accident. Now he’s all business. No room for emotion. Until he stumbles across that damn stuffed wolf and the beautiful single mother looking for it. Is he ready to give love a second chance? 

But there’s more to Sebastian, his family, and his past than Heather knows. More than even Sebastian knows. Will the life they’re building together be challenged when the truth is finally revealed?

I was absolutely charmed by this book. So much of it grabs you and leads you straight into caring for the characters in the book.

Ava and Sebastian meet over the missing stuffed wolf that was lost by a little girl.  The attraction is immediate, and Sebastian does what everyone does in this situation...he's rude to the woman he's attracted to.

Wait, that's not what everyone does.  In fact, it's opposite...but, he has reasons.  And getting to know him, and why he acts as he does, while dealing with stuffed wolves, is absolutely heartwarming and charming.

I enjoyed and recommend this title...and I am looking forward to the next one.
