Blog Tour: Beautiful Broken Mess (Broken Series, #2) by Kimberly Lauren

We're so excited to be part of the blog tour for Beautiful Broken Mess by Kimberley Lauren.  Heather absolutely loved Beautiful Broken Rules, so it was a no brainer to sign up for this tour.  Check out all the details below, including Heather's review.

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.

I loved Beautiful Broken Rules, but I can honestly say that I loved Beautiful Broken Mess even more. That's right, Jace topped Jaxon and there is definitely more to the story than meets the eye.

I loved Jace's character in the first book, he's more my type than Jaxon was. Not only that, Jace has a sensitive side that completely came out in this book; even more so than the last. If I loved him before, I certainly am head over heels for him now.

Audrey has been though hell and back, it's just that nobody knew it. She kept it hidden and tucked away from everyone. She kept people at bay and the one and only time she feels anything remotely for someone, it all goes down hill and things don't turn out the way that Audrey or Jace for that matter, had hoped. 

We learn everything about Audrey's past and it isn't pretty. In fact she's been judged by everyone around her. I'm sad to say that even I did from the first book. It just goes to show you what assumption and judging will do. 

I love Emerson and Quinn and oh sexy Cole, and I'm so glad they got to be a monumental part in this book. I love the introduction of Lane. I loved his big brother protector bit over Audrey. He's definitely a character and kept me laughing.

I love all of these characters and I'm certainly invested in them and oh' the end.... Nope, not giving it away.;) Let's just say it left me waiting for more and I cannot wait! 

4.5 out of 5 stars!!

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'.
