Summary from Goodreads:
We’d both gone missing at one point, but Claire had one thing I didn’t. Someone to notice. So why was I the one still here and she the one still gone?
Nineteen year old Megan Smith has spent the past year working in a small town diner in the middle of nowhere. Life is quiet, simple, safe. Then comes the news that her look-a-like has gone missing.
Still damaged both physically and mentally, Megan's not looking to be noticed. Wherever she goes from here, it's a road she needs to take alone. But when Nickolas Ellis takes the job as the new nightshift cook, it scares her how easily her defenses crumble down, down, down for him. But there are secrets she can't bear to share with just anyone, unspeakable acts that continue to haunt, and when the similarities of Claire’s abduction couples with the fear of an unwanted visitor in town, the urge to run before it all happens again intensifies, threatening the only happiness Megan's ever found.
New Adult Romantic Suspense / Realistic Fiction
Recommended for 17+ for mature and disturbing situations, language and sexual content.

First I have to say DEVON ASHLEY you have done it again! Lord how I love to read Devon's books. I am captivated every time I pick one of her books up and read it. I mean I just can't out it down and this book is no different. I am so glad it is going to be a series because I need more Nickolas and Megan. This story has everything in it from suspense to action to all the things in between. I mean Devon knows how to write a book that hooks you right in from the very first page and keeps you reading until the end and when you reach it like I did you say OH HELL NO..........................
In Nearly Broken we meet Megan who has moved to a small town and is working at the local diner as a waitress. She loves her job and she loves that fact that she has found this small place to call her own. She has secrets that she wants to stay buried and a past that she wants to forget. What other place to do that than a small town. She is working the diner living her life free of her past until she meets Nickolas who is the new night chef. Megan has kept everything together bottled up inside her until she meets Nickolas. Lord Nickolas knocks down all her defensive walls she has built and slowly she lets him in. She has fallen for him but she is afraid of her past.
Then just as her and Nickolas are getting to know each other Megan finds out that a girl looking just like her has disappeared. Her name is Claire and when Claire goes missing Megan's worse fears are about to come true because you can't run away from your past without it coming back to haunt you. A man comes to town and everything that Megan has worked so hard for comes crashing down as her past is there to confront her. Soon her past will collide with her future and she will have to decide what to do. Will she run or will she stay and confront her past and the secrets she has hidden?
