BROKEN by Tanille Edwards: Blurb and Giveaway

Welcome to my stop on the blurb blitz tour for Broken by Tanille Edwards, a young adult romance available now from Fire Flies Entertainment. This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Click on the banner to visit other stops on this tour.


Meet Milan, a young supermodel with a disability from New York’s Upper East Side, who falls deeply in love as she is coming of age. In this romantic drama, the emotional conflict of a girl’s inner soul is revealed as she deals with a first love, the pain of loss, and the pleasures of stardom, all while coping with a lifelong secret. In the world of Milan, the people are real, the situations are rolling, and the truth is often concealed. Broken is a racy circle of sisterhood, laced with a touch of earthiness, glamour, wealth, and fame.


“Nah. How I do it is simple. I take daytime classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Then I have one night class on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Since I’m at school, I do all my homework then.”

“Do you like it?”

“You want to know what I think?” he asked.


“Yeah,” he smirked.

“What school do you go to?”

“Hunter College. What’s with you and college? You’re probably so rich and famous you don’t need college. Seriously, if I were rich, I would not go.”
I winced at the thought of not needing to be educated. It was equivalent to the thought of not needing to vote. People had died so that future generations could vote. Not even just African American people, but people of all ethnicities. What about women’s suffrage? Obviously, my sophomore women’s lit class was weighing heavily upon my mind. In the early 1900s, there were still some colleges that didn’t admit women, even some Ivy Leagues.

“I think ‘need’ is an interesting choice of a word. I believe if more people chose to educate themselves out of the need to be self-sufficient, out of a need to abolish ignorance, and out of the need to cultivate an appreciation of the world past and present, then there would be less of a need to create classifications among the population based on race, class, and education level. Relieved from such concerns, we could then tackle imminent issues such as global warming as a unified human race.”

“Ha, I like that. Sounds like an excellent introduction to your college application essay,” he said.

“You’re right.” I still hadn’t come up with an essay topic yet.

“I just saw my manager give me the evil eye. Maybe I can bring you something, then we can talk some more later,” he said.

“So sweet. I will have cranberry juice. Thank you.”

Broken is on sale for only $1.99 for a limited time at all outlets: Barnes and Noble | Amazon
