Review- All Broke Down by Cora Carmack


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.


I had read and loved Cora Carmack's All Lined Up, the first book in the Rusk University series, so I was pretty excited for All Broke Down. All Broke Down is the story of Dylan and Silas. We'd met Silas in the previous book and he was quite the jerk there but we do get to see that there is so much more to him and Dylan. All Broke Down was a pretty good read.

Dylan is your typical do gooder or so it seems when we first meet her. She loves fighting for lost causes and one of those times makes her land up in jail where she meets Silas. I really liked Dylan. She was a sweet girl who was genuinely trying to prove that she deserved to be where she was. I loved how she wanted to help Silas and her intentions were always good.

Then we have Silas. Like I said previously, Silas was a jerk when we'd met him in the previous book and he is still is to an extent but he had his reasons. Silas has a very unstable childhood which makes him doubt his position on the team. He screws up but he does make it right too. I really liked Silas after understanding him. 

Dylan and Silas have chemistry since the first moment they meet. Like all Cora Carmack books, the connection the hero heroine share is lovely and one which I thoroughly enjoyed. They may look like complete opposites on the surface but Dylan and Silas understood each other really well. Their love story was sweet and genuine.

While I cannot say that Dylan and Silas are my favorite couple and that All Broke Down is one of Cora Carmack's best works, I did enjoy All Broke Down. We get to meet many other characters as well, some of whose stories have already kinda started and I'm curious to see how they go forward. All Broke Down shouldn't be missed by new adult fans.
