Overall Rating: 4 Stars
Title: Broken Ties (Prequel Novella)
Author: Kenechi Udogu
Series: The Mentalist Series
Format: eBook provided in exchange for an honest review

Paul Colt has a problem, and it is not one most teenage boys face. Yes, he likes a girl; one he’s pretty certain he’ll do foolish things for, given the chance. But he can’t go after her, or any other girl for that matter. That’s what he gets for being an Averter; forced to toe the line for the propagation of the collective. He knows some rules are okay to trifle with, and there are some which should never be broken. The gravest of them all?

Don’t fall in love.


This is the story of how Paul breaks that rule.




First thing’s first, I was so intrigued when I found out that the book was in Paul and Nora’s point of view!

Instead of reading this before the first book, I read it last and I honestly would recommend reading it last but of course, either way would work.

When I finished this, it took me a second to really believe that it was completely finished. I wanted more to the story and it definitely drew me in.

Paul’s point of view started out in the story and I was instantly intrigued, but I was even more interested when Nora’s point of view came in. I really like that it gave a little backstory before Gemma and Russ’s relationship and before the entire adventure.

Overall I liked it … just like all of the books in this series!
