I was sixteen when he came to our house. Landon Jones, a boy with nothing, from nowhere. He had cinnamon hair and blue eyes—light blue, just like mine. When we went out as a family with my foster brother, people asked if Landon was my twin. He wasn’t. That year, we found out how much he wasn’t. When my parents caught us, they threw Landon out like trash.
Now I’m twenty-nine, a soon-to-be surgeon, like my mom and dad. I know residency is going to kick my ass, but I had no idea that it would rip my heart out, too. Not until I see him—Dr. Jones.
Q and A by Angie & Liezel
Do you consider having a relationship with your foster brother taboo?
Angie: Like Liezel said it depends on the situation. In this book, there wasn’t anything taboo about it. Landon came into Evie’s life when she was in high school.
Liezel: For me, it would all depend on the age and length of time they became foster siblings. If they were raised together from birth than without a doubt I would have difficulties with it. In Landon and Evie situation, this wasn’t an a problem so I felt it wasn’t as taboo as some may think.
Would you foster a child with a troubled past?
Angie: This is such a tough question to answer. Nationwide more than 463,000 children live in foster care. Out of that number, the statistics for abuse are this:
18.8% Physical Abuse
7.9% Emotional abuse
6.2% Sexual Abuse
3.2% Caretaker Inability
That doesn’t even include substance abuse which is the number one reason why children enter the system in the first place. The majority of children for substance abuse are infants who are addicted to drugs. So to answer the question, I don’t know if I am that special person. They need undivided love and attention that I wouldn’t be able to give them without taking it away from my own child. I applaud Evie’s parents for fostering children for as long as Evie could remember. They are definitely special people and rare in the foster care system.
Liezel: Fostering, in general, would be stressful enough. If I did ever decide to take on such a life-changing commitment, I would want to foster someone without a difficult past. If all goes well the first time, then I would definitely consider fostering a child with these issues.
If you were ever to adopt, would you be okay with your adopted child being in contact with their biological parents?
Angie: Yes I would. In fact, I would never keep them away from their biological parents. I would be honest from the very first time they were old enough to understand and help them look for them.
Liezel: If all possible, I would love for my adopted child to find their biological parents but of course the mama bear in me would want to make sure that said parents are of a right mind. At all cost, I would want to protect the children.
Sex in the workplace? Could you do it?
Angie: Don’t knock it until you try it. 😉 Depending on where you work it could be quite enjoyable.
Liezel: I’m all about spontaneity but in my line of work…I would say it’s not doable. Someone is bound to find out….check out all the hospital related dramas ever produced! Nope not me, I am not losing my credibility or my license over three minutes of gratification.
What are your thoughts about Landon and Evie? Do you think they paired well?
Angie: I loved them as a couple. Despite all the obstacles that stood in their way they were led back to each other. They couldn’t help they fell in love at the worst time possible. They could not help they couldn’t stay away from each other when they knew they should. They sure as hell couldn’t help it when fate brought them face to face again years later and that spark never died. It’s kismet after all. No one has a chance against kismet.
Liezel: I loved them as a couple. The author definitely described a fated couple. It was as if they couldn’t function without knowing where each other was at any given time. Even when they were apart, it was as if their hearts and souls yearned to be together again.
Would you recommend this book?
Angie: You can never go wrong with reading Ella’s books. The plot keeps you reading and the characters keep you entertained. The only thing I didn’t like was some parts were very descriptive that didn’t need to be but other than that I enjoyed it and I would recommend it to everyone I know.
Liezel: It has been a while since I’ve read an EPIC romance and Fractured Love fit the bill down to a T. If romance between star-crossed lovers is your thing grab this book. I assure you, you will love everything about it just like I did.
