 Summary from Goodreads

Alexandra's older brother died the night he graduated. That day changed everything for her. No longer was she the party girl. No longer did she care about being popular and no longer was her family the happy unit she always thought existed. The only person who could help her heal is the same person who loved her brother as much as she did, his best friend. She only hopes to keep her entire heart from breaking when Jesse will move on, and she knows he will. 

After Ethan died, Jesse excelled at basketball, partying, and girls. He used it all to turn his emotions off, but the irony was that Alex was the only person who could do that for him. She helped him forget, but she was the one person he shouldn't be with because the secrets he knows could shatter everything. They could shatter her.

My Review

Here's one messy character. Broken and Screwed fit perfectly for Alexandra... and to Jesse Hunt as well.. I guess. 

I kind of get the whole point of the story. It's a simple plot with lots of complications. Too much complications that I am wondering if these all makes sense. I could feel the grief, sadness and even the desire of the characters. It's not a happy story actually. But I've expected that with the death of Alex;s brother being in the center if this all. 

But I just feel that this book is so one sided and incomplete. It started and ended with Alex being in the same state - broken and screwed. There were no revelations and what's really happening behind the story. No explanations of Jesse's feeling ad characters, Marissa's and Alex. It's quite confusing but it has the pull as other mysterious books has. 

It has a good plot but I feel like the book could e better if it ended with some bits of enlightenment on what is really happening. Hoping the next book would give much details.
