Nearly Broken by Devon Ashley
Release Date: June 4, 2013
Synopsis: We’d both gone missing at one point, but Claire had one thing I didn’t. Someone to notice. So why was I the one still here and she the one still gone?
Nineteen year old Megan Smith has spent the past year working in a small town diner in the middle of nowhere. Life is quiet, simple, safe. Then comes the news that her look-a-like has gone missing.
Still damaged both physically and mentally, Megan's not looking to be noticed. Wherever she goes from here, it's a road she needs to take alone. But when Nickolas Ellis takes the job as the new nightshift cook, it scares her how easily her defenses crumble down, down, down for him. But there are secrets she can't bear to share with just anyone, unspeakable acts that continue to haunt, and when the similarities of Claire’s abduction couples with the fear of an unwanted visitor in town, the urge to run before it all happens again intensifies, threatening the only happiness Megan's ever found.

I actually had to focus on this one for a bit. Normally, I have a playlist already created that I listening to while I write, but for some reason (maybe a certain demanding 2 year old wanting to fill the void with Cars and Tinkerbell movies), I didn’t really listen to music this time. So the only track I had set aside for Nearly Broken was the one I regarded as the theme song: Jason Mraz’s I Won’t Give Up. Everything about this song screams Nick and Megan.
The rest are additional tracks that make me think of Nearly Broken in some way or another. I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section! Avril Lavigne’s song is definitely my fave of the group!
