When she leaves her small town in Texas to attend college in California, Audrey runs into the one guy who could make her or break her. But is the past they share too painful for them to overcome?
This is the second book in the broken series. While each book can stand on its own, it's recommended you read Beautiful Broken Rules before Beautiful Broken Mess.
New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance - recommended for ages 18 and up.
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'.
I gave this 4.25 stars.... Main reason being that I now love Audrey! In Beautiful Broken Rules, she left kind of a sour taste in our mouths. We thought she was a psycho... Little did we know her story!
Their tragic past with secrets that could have brought them together instead of tearing them apart, feelings that never faded through everything, and their states of being unsure of being together, make this story one that is hard to put down.
You will fall in love with Audrey. Feel sorry for her. Long for her to and Jace to work things out. I found myself begging her to just tell him everything... beg for him to be hers.
Jace was so heartbroken back in high school... Now you see him as a loving and guarded man. His feelings for Audrey run deep. I found myself wanting him to run to her and tell her to forget about the past... force her to try to start new...
But we know it isn't that simple... It would make for a boring book. When tragedy strikes, things really get interesting and heartbreaking.
