Review: Beautiful Broken Mess

Beautiful Broken Mess
Beautiful Broken Mess by Kimberly Lauren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sweet, sexy and secretive

I knew for a while that this book wasn’t just about smart, handsome, honorable Jace. I was aware the this story would also be about horrible, she-devil Audrey. And even though I got BBM from the moment it went live on amazon a day early, I was hesitant to start it.

I shouldn’t have worried though, because Kimberly did as Kimberly does, which is write a wonderfully sweet book about growing up and taking advantage when life gives you a second chance.

I was hooked from the start with a rhythm that didn’t allow me put the book down, its dual perspective giving us a better scope and understanding regarding the characters’ feelings and the action around them.

Oh and by the end of the first chapter I wanted to find Audrey personally and beg her forgiveness. Beautiful Broken Mess formally presents us an Audrey who “isn’t the type of girl to wait around for anyone; she’s strong and she makes her own happiness,” “she’s kind and forgiving.” It also introduces us to very delightful, caring and hunky dimpled Lane with a great sense of humor.


“Oh, and by the way, you break her heart, I’ll break your neck. Welcome to the family, bro! Can’t get rid of me now,” Lane says in an annoyingly cheerful voice, all while I’m stunned to silence.

And the fun doesn’t end there! We get to know how Cole and Quinn and Jax and Emerson continue with their lives and relationships and how they affect Jace and Audrey’s; we get to better know Jace and his take charge domineering side while secrets are unearthed and sexy and sweet is let loose.

“Audrey, there aren’t enough nights in a lifetime to get you out of my system.”

I can’t wait for the next one!
