An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from her new boyfriend. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.

 Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy. Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s ex is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.

Night Broken begins when Mercy and Adam get a call from Christy, Adam's ex-wife, saying she needs help hiding from her boyfriend who hurt her. So they let her come to stay with them until they can find her boyfriend and take care of him. These causes a lot of problems between Mercy, and some of the pack especially because Christy is so manipulative. So Mercy ends up stay away from home as much as she can until more trouble finds her in the form of Christy's boyfriend trying to attack Mercy at her garage. Then the Fae want back the walking stick that Mercy no longer has. So she has a whole lot to deal with until they can figure out how to defeat the bad guy.. 

 This book wasn't as good as most of the others. To me it just felt more like a filler book. I didn't really understand much of the walking stick business in the book. it really didn't seem to take up much of the story. Then I really hated how Adam handled Christy. I felt like some of the "looks" he gave her weren't right and kind of hurtful. Then there was the whole phone stuff, and I was just like why doesn't Adam just keep his phone with him? It was exasperating. It all worked out in the end though. I did like this one, but it wasn't as good as the other books in the series.
