I can officially say that All Broke Down just became my favorite Cora book. I never thought Iâ??d utter those words after finishing Finding It. I identify myself with Kelsey so much that I felt like Cora was spying on me and wrote a novel about my life. Hey Cora, Iâ??m gonna need those royalty checks now lol! My mind completely turned when I got my hands on All Broke Down. I honestly have now words. Wow is the first thing I said once I got to the last page, and wow is all I've been saying. Everyone expects you to be a certain way. Whether it be because of your upbringing or where you are from, people automatically jump to conclusions without giving you the benefit of the thought. Thatâ??s why Silas Moore has kept his mouth shut about his past. He keeps focus on whatâ??s most important to him. Football is his one way ticket out of everything. Will ghosts from his past threaten to mess it all up, or will certain stranger help guide him the right way? Iâ??m literally writing this not even five minutes after I've finished reading All Broke Down. Iâ??m not sure if thatâ??s a good or bad idea. Good because everything is still fresh in my mind, bad because this will basically be a love letter to Cora and this amazing book. Eh, seems like there is no down side lol! You honestly go on a roller-coaster of emotions with this book. From getting a better insight into Silasâ?? mind as well as getting to know this girl amazing that will make you crack up, as well as cringe at how awkward she can be. Dylan is truly one of a kind. Silas and Dylanâ??s â??relationshipâ?? isn't your typical story. They are both lost. One is trying to leave the past behind and the other doesn't exactly know where she belongs. Many of us have felt and some still feel that way. I think thatâ??s why you will instantly fall in love with their story. Iâ??m being somewhat vague with what goes on, but itâ??s only because I want you guys to experience their story first hand. Itâ??s truly wonderful and Coraâ??s writing is literally on another level when it comes to All Broke Down. If you enjoyed All Lined Up then I can guarantee you will love All Broke Down.show more

Cora Carmack has never written the quintessential bad boy before. There was studious Garrick, sensitive Cade, mysterious Jackson, and most recently, dedicated Carson. I would never have used the term "bad boy" to describe any of them. And then, along came Silas Moore. Silas is angry. Like, all the time. His relationship with his mom is terrible (and so is she), his BFF is in jail for dealing, and Coach Cole has had it with all the fights that Silas keeps getting in, so he benches him. It's during his darkest moments that a ray of light by the name of Dylan enters his life. Initially, she's just a means to an end, but somewhere along the way, Silas gains something he thought was lost forever - hope. Okay - Cora, you can do a bad boy anytime you want to. Silas is full of all the best bad boy things. He is conflicted and troubled and angry and cocky. But, the best part of the best bad boys is his redeemability. If there wasn't some good stuff in there, he would just be... well, bad. And, Silas is full of lots of good stuff. From the beginning, he's inexplicably helping Dylan. Sure, he tells himself it's because she's hot and he really wants to tap that, but the reader can tell that there's more to it than that (although, there IS that too). Silas may have been beaten down by his trashy mother, and his best friend may be trying to suck him into a world he has no business being in, but, Silas is fighting all that negativity with everything in him, and Dylan is the key to success. He recognizes the hope she represents, and he wants a piece of it. So, although it chaps his hide a bit, he asks Dylan for her help to get him back on the straight and narrow, and subsequently, back on the football team. Dylan's granting of Silas' request is a little self-serving. She is looking for exactly the opposite. Where Silas is the typical bad boy, Dylan is your typical good girl. She comes from a well-off family, she gets good grades and is a community activist. And, she's as unhappy and unfulfilled as Silas is. She has this yearning for the grit of life to seep into her pores a little bit, and along with it, maybe she will figure out what really makes her happy. When she meets Silas in jail, she knows that he's just the guy to help her with that. I really loved Dylan. She was, at times a bit too eager when it came to Silas, but hell. Who wouldn't be when faced with all that hotness and his talented hands? But, she also had a spine - that's very important. Those girls who fall all over themselves to please the object of their desire make me want to throw my book. Dylan was woman enough to admit that she wanted some things from Silas, but strong enough to walk away when she had to. I remember in college, I was in charge of orientation activities for the incoming freshmen. I was taught that one of the best ways to bring a group of strangers together was through pain and misery - namely, physical labor. Never was there a finer example of this than with Dylan and Silas. They bonded in jail and fell in love while toiling away for Habitat for Humanity. It was cool watching Dylan and the satisfaction of a job well done smooth over Silas' rough edges. And, it was also nice to know that once Silas got in touch with his inner good guy that there wasn't enough bad left in him to be interesting. His and Dylan's relationship was hot and sexy and dirty and absolutely perfect. So, Cora, you can do a sexy bad boy any day of the week and twice on Sundays. In fact - please do.show more

I REALLY don't know how Cora does it but each book she writes is better than the last (and when the last is stellar, that's saying something!) I'm so so so So So So Pleased with how ABD turned out and I honestly can't wait for all of you to get your grabby hands on this book! If you're on the fence, jump off of it now - and buy this book!! If you haven't read ALL LINED UP, then that's okay - they can be read as stand alones - (but you should totally read it too). If you're a fan of zero fun and not very hot guys though, you probably shouldn't buy this book ;) You are going to love Silas and Dylan. What are you waiting for? The Silas Virus is real and it feels so good!show more
