Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.

Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.

Sweet.Caring.Charitable.Quiet.Fake.Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.Who taught her how to laugh.To live.To love.Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.Gorgeous.Athletic.Rugged.Popular.Liar.

This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.

But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.

Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.


Nothing in the world could have prepared me for this book, teasers… NOTHING. I’m just in awe over the fact that Leigh did it again, she brought everything and so much more to tell Knight and Luna’s story. And there were just so many facets to it all.

The one word I would use to describe these two is destructive. Night and day, these two were, but they were thick as thieves and so damn loyal to one another. But in their teen years, vulnerabilities were constantly at the forefront. Instead of talking through it, they used other ways to cope with it, which lead them down this long road of uncertainty.

Hard lessons were learned, both needed to grow beyond themselves. They needed to overcome their fears and finally grasp every amazing that was right in front of them.

Leigh truly took BK to another level, incorporating all these different stories and tying them perfectly into one. Everything was connected in some way, bringing all the characters that we loved in the fold. Just digging their way deeper into our hearts.

I just about went through every single emotion possible, I laughed, I cried (more times than I can count), raged over stupid mistakes, screamed in frustration, but most of all I fell in love. BK resonates so deeply that it’s a story I’ll never forget. I didn’t want it to be over and I know we’ll see them again, but in this moment with this book, I wanted to cherish all my feelings during a first read-through, forever.

Broken Knight is a book that I wish I could read for the first time over and over, again. It’s truly a story that will always stay with me. Hands down, Leigh’s best book and my favorite for 2019.

major thank you to social butterfly pr and the author for the complimentary copy in consideration for a review. this does not affect my opinion of the book or review.
