Audrey Mills often wonders at what point she should throw her hands up in defeat and allow all of the horrible circumstances of her life to overtake her. Despite the demons she has faced, however, something inside her won’t give in. 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.
So if you read my review for Beautiful Broken Rules (book 1) then you know how much I already LOVE Kimberly Lauren! Beautiful Broken Mess was definitely NOT a disappointment!
We met Audrey in book 1 and she comes off as a total witch! I wasn't too sure how book 2 would work with her being a main character, but you really grow to understand and I dare say love her! There are somethings that happen that I think could have played out differently, but I really enjoyed the story. I was so happy when I learned Jace was getting his own story because I totally LOVED him in book 1. You get to see a whole other side of him in book 2!
Book 2 brings Jace and Jaxson's past and present crashing together in a storm from hell! BUT... it is a ride you won't want to miss!
You do not HAVE to read Beautiful Broken Rules in order to read Beautiful Broken Mess, but I would HIGHLY reccomend it! Book one introduces the main characters in book 2 and you will already have developed opionions and views on them. Reading book 1 will make book 2 that much better!
Rating: 4.5 stars
About The Author:
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'.
