Jace Riley’s close connection with his identical twin brother, Jaxon, is put to the test when he tries to choose between keeping his promises and following his heart. Is this girl that still haunts his dreams, even after four years, really worth it? Jace can’t help but wonder if he made a huge mistake all that time ago when he let her walk into someone else’s arms, especially since that someone was his twin.
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.
4.5 Beautiful Stars!
Kimberly Lauren has done it again. She has delivered another awesome book that you won't want to put down until you have finished the last page. I knew when I began this book that I would love it just because I loved Beautiful Broken Rules and how Kimberly Lauren wrote it.
In this book we get a completely different brother. Instead of Jaxon, we get to Jace's story which can I just add is great! I already loved him just from book 1 but wow, he is completely different than his brother but yet it's everything you love in him. He is always in control of his life, always trying to make sure others are taken care of, and never wants to let anyone down. Jace must make a choice. Can he move on with his life and forget about Audrey or are his feelings for her too much. He must figure out how to follow his heart but at the same time as not betraying his brother.
Audrey has been through more than any one person deserves but yet she is strong and looks for the good in people. We got to see her in book 1 but it wasn't a view I found appealing. Personally, I couldn't stand her but wow, did I have the story all wrong. I am so happy Kimberly wrote this book and gave a new outlook on Audrey and the real story behind her.
I found myself giggling while reading this story, feeling their emotions, and even worried at one point, but loved every second of it. A good book is one that makes you feel and that is exactly what Beautiful Broken Mess does, it makes you feel in so many ways. I loved this book and think that everyone should have the chance to read it. If you have yet to read book 1, then what are you waiting for? Go one click it, or but the paperback because it's worth it..
Oh, and one last thing! I am sooo excited for Lane's story!!!! How could we not love him!? <3
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'.
