Review: I didn’t really know what to expect going into this book. I had a little idea about the characters, and a just thought this book might tide me over till I get to the next book in the series. Boy was I wrong. It was such an amazing story line and that I held my breath a lot while reading. I just fell head on into this book.
The characters Silas and Dylan were amazing to read about. I totally thought that the books following the first in the series would never be as good. But, I’m happy I was wrong. They have far surpassed the first book. Man, Carmack knows how to blow you out of the water with her characters.
I fell like we didn’t get to really see any of the other side characters in the first book. In All Broke Down though, we get to see them a lot more and get a good feel for who they might be.
Another great thing about this book are the topics that Carmack hits on. They are all serious and heavy hitters that do happen and are really what people feel when in college.
5 out of 5 stars.

Summary: In this second book in “New York Times” and “USA Today” bestselling author Cora Carmack s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with “All Lined Up,” a young woman discovers that you can t only fight for what you believe in sometimes you have to fight for what you love.
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.”
