Beautiful Broken Rules by Kimberly Lauren
Release date: May 14, 2013
What happens when you create rules to keep others out?
One thing Emerson Moore has come to terms with is that she is the school slut. She knows her way around a frat house and how to get what she wants. She doesn’t make any excuses for her actions and she doesn’t pretend to be anything different. She is who she is and with that she knows how to have a good time. She’s made rules to keep relationships at bay and avoid the demons of her past.
When her best friend, Cole has his two friends from back home move in with him she begins to think she has met her match with Jaxon Riley. Jax is the perfect mixture of tattooed muscle and a sweet-talking mouth. With “hand” written notes, a voice that exudes sex and knowing just how to get under her skin, Jaxon learns how to break all the rules. But will he just end up breaking her heart anyway?
I am almost at a loss of words with this book. I was able to feel so many emotions. The story is the right mixture of predictable and unpredictable that it makes you smile. You almost know how things will turn out, but the journey getting to the end is painful. This book brought on some tears… which I love! Books that bring out emotions in the reader are a thumbs-up in my book.
Now, I am not saying that everything will turn out the way you want. What I am saying is that getting to the end of this story is a journey. A journey that will have you up and down throughout the book. There are parts that will rip your heart out. There are parts where you want to reach into the book and smack some sense into the characters. There is something serene about characters who are stubborn and unwilling to bend themselves, even when they feel themselves breaking down. Their journeys are their own, and you will get lost in them.
I have read some of the past reviews of this book. I do agree with some that there are parts that seem to drag on and one wants to skip to them to get to the fun stuff. Just hold on tight. Although these parts are kind of sappy, they make the book as a whole. Sometimes you need a little sappy mixed with the drama and pain. It all evens out in the end!!
Would I recommend this book? Absolutely. I almost loved it. There is no rhyme or reason why I didn’t LOVE it, but I am close to loving it. This definitely is a good read. It won’t take long to read it. And you won’t be disappointed for doing so.
A little about Kimberly…I'm a wanderer, an adventurer, a traveler.
I want to see it all. I haven't been everywhere but it's on my list.
"She travels the world & home is always in her heart."
Lately if I'm not traveling or chasing a toddler, I'm writing. Which is weird because I hated writing in college. Oh wait, that's because that was boring. Who really wants to sit there and cite all your sources into APA format? Not this girl. Writing for yourself is enjoyable and cathartic. Please try it. Then tell me about because I love indie authors.
When I was 19, I packed up and followed my high school sweetheart from Texas to California. We had a blast living it up in San Diego. Four years later we made a crazy decision and packed up again and moved to Germany. What? Yep, you read that right. Guess what? Best decision ever! We OWNED Europe. For three years we saw as much as we possibly could. We lived an hour outside of France, a couple from Switzerland and Italy. Most amazing time of my life. Please go out there and see the world, you won't regret it. After Europe we moved back to California, and for now we're just debating our next adventure.
I earned a degree in Child Development. And now I write novels. Makes perfect sense! I write because I walk around all day with these stories in my head. It's nice to be able to get them out of my head in an organized fashion. I hope that someone out there enjoys them, because I have enjoyed so many others'.
