Book Review: All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

All Broke Down
By Cora Carmack 
Release Date: October 28, 2014
Source: Library
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.

HOLY MOLY, SILAS MOORE. I. Love. You. Seriously, I heard about the Silas Virus before going into this novel, but hearing about it and experiencing it are two very different experiences. And if you haven't caught the virus, you have to pick up this book because you're not going to want to let it go! 

Dylan is a do-gooder who likes to fix problems, and her latest cause has landed her in jail. She's instantly intrigued by the quiet guy in her friend's cell and falls head first into Silas Moore's life. Silas is an arrogant jock who uses his anger to fuel his intensity on the football field, but his past mistakes are starting to catch up to him. Silas finds a calmer life with Dylan and when his anger threatens his entire football career, Silas knows that Dylan can fix him. But is she up for the task? 

Let me repeat. Holy. Moly. Silas. Moore. Silas was very arrogant and not really likable in the first book in this series. But in this book, you got to really know Silas and his background and what he was dealing with in life. Seriously, this man was so broken and you just couldn't help but want to fix him. You really got to understand his arrogance and his struggle with his past and his anger. You just wanted the best for him and for him to make the right choices, but that wasn't always easy for him. I LOVED how Silas and Dylan met and how different they were from each other. They were both so intrigued by how wrong for each other they were, but how attracted they were to each other. Wow, that chemistry was through the roof and I could not get enough of them together!

Every romance has its ups and downs, sometimes believable, sometimes annoying. When Silas and Dylan had their ups and downs, they were so believable that they were heartbreaking! I hated when they were fighting or struggling or distancing themselves from each other because I just wanted them to fix each other and make each other whole. The other characters added a lot to this story, too, and we still got the beloved guys from the football team and Dallas and Carson from the first book. There was enough football to feed my sports romance love but not too much to take away from the main relationship. It was just perfection!

If you haven't read Cora Carmack yet, YOU HAVE TO. Like now. I loved her Losing It series and I am in love with her Rusk University series. All Broke Down is definitely my absolute favorite book of hers and Silas Moore is going to be one of my favorite book boyfriends for a very long time. So grab yourself a copy of this book now and see what the Silas Virus is all about!
