"Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one. Environmental
issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians you name
it, she's probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause
lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He's in for a
different kind of fighting. And though he's arrogant and infuriating,
she can't help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause. Football
and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas.
And it's trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He's
met girls like her before fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the
damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn't think
he's broken, and he definitely doesn't need a girlfriend trying to
change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten
the only thing he really cares about: his spot on the Rusk University
football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help. Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all." (Summary from goodreads.com)
I really enjoyed All Broke Down. I enjoyed this book even more than the first one in the series, All Lined Up. I couldn't put it down and so I finished it all in one day.
All Broke Down is the story of Silas, who always seems to be getting into some sort of trouble, and Dylan, who fights for what she believes in. After meeting in jail one night, these two can't seem to stay away from each other. Silas even enlists Dylan's help in cleaning up his image and attitude when his position on the football team is in jeopardy.
I loved both Silas and Dylan because these are two complex characters who make mistakes. They both have their flaws. Silas struggles to keep his anger in check and he usually finds himself in tough situations because of it. While Dylan struggles with doing what she wants or doing what will reflect well on her family. Both of these characters grow and develop really well through the story. I also love the way that the relationship develops between them as well. It was realistic and hot.
I enjoyed the plot for All Broke Down even more than the plot for All Lined Up. It was great to follow along as both Silas and Dylan learn so much from each other. Carmack once again paced the story really well and wrote that great balance between drama and romance. It was also great to see some characters from All Lined Up show up again in this book and meet some new characters as well.
Overall I really enjoyed All Broke Down and definitely recommend picking it up. It had really great characters that will be difficult to ever forget about. I am now anxiously awaiting the next book in this series.
