Book Blitz! Broken English By Marita A. Hansen


Broken English Final KDP Cover (3).jpg

For me, the name Dante conjured up two images. The first was the epic depictions of Hell from Dante’s Inferno, with people burning for their sins. The second image was a sexual depiction. I don’t know where it came from, but as far back as I can remember, I had always associated the name Dante with a beautiful and sexy man. I'd imagined a dark-haired, dark-eyed, gorgeous lothario, the type who could capture a woman’s heart with just one look. Dante was the Fabio of my generation, the heartthrob that got women’s hearts beating fast, made us want this man to rip our clothes off and to throw us onto the bed.

Little did I know that the Dante that walked into my life was very different from the one I’d imagined. Oh, he was dark-haired, dark-eyed, gorgeous, even a lothario ... just ... he wasn’t a man. He was a fifteen-year-old boy who was going to send me to the Hell his namesake had written about.
And I was his teacher.

Holy shit.  Those are the words I uttered when I finished Broken English. I am without words, and that’s not good since I have this review to type.  I am without words not because I didn’t like Broken English, oh no that isn’t the case.  I loved it.  I am without words because I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!  It is taboo, it is a tad dark, it is angsty, it is sexy and it had my jaw dropping open more than once because I couldn’t believe what I just read.  This is a teacher/student romance but it is not your average teacher and 18 year old who is still a student, hence the taboo tag.  Dante is fifteen years old but the way he acts, the life he has lived, the things he has been through make him so much older. The push and pull, the dynamic between Clara and Dante had me totally consumed.  I couldn’t take much more of the sexual tension between these two, it was explosive.  Broken English will have you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen on the next page.  I can’t wait until I get my book whore hands on the next book because I have a feeling the fireworks aren’t over yet!
