Confined to a wheelchair after an accident, Kason Tyler has lost his confidence in his appeal. He’s attracted to Ryen Moore, the owner of the coffee shop he frequents, but doesn’t think Ryen would feel the same. When he discovers Ryen is interested, he doesn’t know what to do. Fortunately Ryen does, and asks Kason out. They’re both smitten, but an unexpected encounter might tear them apart.
The Broken Road is a sweet story of two men finding love despite obstacles. Kason doesn’t think anyone could find him attractive in his wheelchair, but Ryen sees the man rather than the chair. Both Kason and Ryen are likeable men. Together they’re sweet and hot. Their relationship progresses a little fast to be totally real—there’s a bit of the fairy tale romance—but I enjoyed the story enough to ignore that little niggle. The secondary characters, including Ryen’s widowed sister-in-law, her kids, Kason’s protective sister, and her kids, were fun. The only real issue I had with The Broken Road was the reliance on an evil ex to provide conflict. Otherwise it was a cute, enjoyable story. It doesn’t delve deeply into the issues a man in a wheelchair would face, or into any of the conflicts posed, but it’s a sweet story with likeable characters and a very nice ending.
