What happens when you create rules to keep others out?

One thing Emerson Moore has come to terms with is that she is the school slut. She knows her way around a frat house and how to get what she wants. She doesn’t make any excuses for her actions and she doesn’t pretend to be anything different. She is who she is and with that she knows how to have a good time. She’s made rules to keep relationships at bay and avoid the demons of her past.

When her best friend, Cole has his two friends from back home move in with him she begins to think she has met her match with Jaxon Riley. Jax is the perfect mixture of tattooed muscle and a sweet-talking mouth. With “hand” written notes, a voice that exudes sex and knowing just how to get under her skin, Jaxon learns how to break all the rules. But will he just end up breaking her heart anyway?

Beautiful Broken Rules is one of those novels that the delicious cover caught my attention first then one thing led to another and boom I was all over it. I did not know what to expect before reading Beautiful Broken Rules as the main character  Emerson has come to terms that she is the school slut. I think I was expecting more of that is what others see her but it was nothing like that at all.

I loved Emerson's character. She is not known as the school slut. As a matter of fact everybody adores her. The guys she has been with know her rules and enjoy being with her. Some of them wish they were the ones to break her rules. Because of her parents she has set rules when it comes to dating. I loved that inside she is a little broken in order to have these rules but she is not one of those whiny broken characters. She is the life of the of the party, fun and outgoing. Kudos to Kimberly Lauren for writing about a  girl heroine who has a good time sexually. Usually it always the heroes have this and it was a nice change.  Loved that  she new what she wanted and stuck to her guns until she met Jaxon.

Jax is the sexy tattoo-biker riding-possessive-alpha male hero who gets inside her heart. Loved his character as he does not push her right away. No insta love here, their time together builds with friendship. Loved the "hand notes" as it adds so much to the novel.  Was even better that Jax has some rules for her too.

It is not all fun and games for them as they do have their moments. Right away I fell in love with Jax and Emerson and their hot chemistry. They were hot-fan yourself in the bedroom.

Kimberly Lauren as found herself a new fan and look forward to reading more in The Broken Series. Fell in love with all the secondary characters and excited Jax twin Jace is up next in Beautiful Broken Mess (Broken #2).

  1. Hmm that sounds a little different. I'm slowly working my way into NA. I've read a couple and enjoyed them but still kinda hesitant about them for some reason. I'm adding this to my list though. Glad to hear it lived up to the cover for ya!

  2. This sounds fun. I love girls who aren't afraid to embrace who they are and who doesn't love an inked up alpha male? Plus, no insta love? I'm in!!

  3. I'm still hesitant about NA too (except Armentrout's Obsession which I adored), but a different kind of girl character is a welcome change from all that we usually read about !


Hello Lovelies. Thank you for stopping by. I love to hear from you.
