Beautiful Broken Mess Blog Tour Banner 

  Title : Beautiful Broken Rules (Broken #2)
Author: Kimberly Lauren
Genre: New Adult Romance
Publication Date: November 9th 2013

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 the first book in this series..but I LOVED this book even more.  It is funny to me how the author took a character that you can't stand in book one and make her not just likable but cherished.  I felt like the Audrey we are first introduced to is a total farce now..which makes me re-think the power of book one.  Fair?  Maybe not, but Jace and Audrey stole the show in my opinion.

Jace first stole my heart in book one, being the best friend to Emerson and just a nice guy.  Always thinking of others.  You realize that this trait is what kept true love out of his grasp for as long as it did.  A chance meeting, a bond made, a misunderstanding and lack of communication set the course for heart break.  Why did Audrey make these choices?  A past like hers would keep me from thinking anything other than get the hell out of dodge too..  Did her heart belong to someone else?  In bringing her REAL story to light you would be an ice princess to not feel for what she has been through..  She wasn't a whiner though, she did the best she could with what she had.  Young minds and younger hearts are not the best at making winning decisions.

Years later, Audrey is finally getting her life in order but she can't fill the void that Jace left in her her new friend/family Lane talks her into going to talk to him..  This is where you meet Audrey in Beautiful Broken Rules.  Her visit along with everything else is taken in the wrong context and she leaves feeling even worse than when she first went.  Another chance run-in..ends badly and when she lands at the same college as Jace and working in the same bar as Emerson, her story unfolds.

The author did an amazing job at not only re-telling a story that you thought you already knew, but did it in a way that stole your heart.  If you haven't read book one I suggest you do, but I would race through it to get to this one..  Loved it and can't wait for the next installment to hear more about Lane and get my glimpses of Jace and Audrey..

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'.
