First off I have to say I absolutely loved Beautiful Broken Rules and didn't think the Kimberly Lauren could top that but damn she did…
I completely disliked Audrey in Broken Rules but once I read her story I absolutely loved her. We get her back story and my heart just broke for her. She had horrible parents who only kept her for the welfare check and a father who used his fists more than loving words. When she was seventeen all she could do was count down the days until she could leave her hell hole and start over. What she didn't expect was to literally run into a guy who would knock her off her feet.
Audrey and Jace’s connection was instant and I loved how no matter how corny it was he didn't care. Right away Jace knew she had to be his no matter what. The only probably was Audrey didn't know he had a twin. So when things happen and she ends up marrying his brother over a lie, then getting it annulled once they found out she lied everyone including Jace hated her. So she left Texas and moved to California to start a new life.
Jace on the other hand never forgot her. He tried but couldn't do it. so 4 years later they are both going to the same college and she just so happens works with the one girl who hates her, and who is also dating her “ex-husband Jax”. Once her and Em talk everything seems to fall into place. Em has that effect on Audrey and sooner or later she opens up to the brothers and things fall in line.
Jace and Audrey’s love was so deep and strong it hurt when they weren't together and I wanted to strangle Jace when he pushed her away for all the wrong reasons. When he finally got his head out of his ass he did good.
I will not give spoilers but lets just say I LOVED how everything ended up and cant wait for more of their story throughout the rest of the series.
I loved getting an update on all the characters and can NOT wait for Lane’s book.
I give this book 5 HUMONGOUS 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'.
