My Thoughts
This is the story of Rita, Margarita and Red; they have met in the previous book of the author, Nemesister, but in this book everything will get more personal and the truth will be revealed, ready?
Rita has a very interesting secret that not everyone knows, she has a double personality, Margarita, that takes care of the situation when she is not able to cope with the problems of her life, she is brave, bold and intelligent, and tries to keep both of them safe, even in the worst situations!
The main question would be, why Rita has a double personality? This is mainly explained in the previous book, thus while I was reading Broken Ponies I felt that there was a lot of the characters’ background that was missing, I suppose it was explained in the previous book. But let me say that Rita had a lot of problems when she was young, family problems, which keep complicating her life even in the present. Because Rita’s sister, a woman that I didn’t like much, had a horrible childhood, but I think she is manipulative and egocentric and tries to play with everyone. Sadly, Rita loves her and tries to help her making his husband to sign the divorce papers, and this is when Red enters the story…
Red and Rita have a past, but this is one of the things I missed of the story, is told in the previous book and we don’t know much about it, simply that they had an explosive meeting… but some sparks seem to flow between them… So when they meet again, instead of starting a fire, Rita will be kidnapped! Who? Why? You’ll have to read the book to know more about it!
This was a interesting book, with twists and a curious story, but you should really read the previous book of the author, Nemesister, to really follow the story.
