While reading this story I experienced so many emotions transpiring between the two main characters Hunter and Elliot , we witness both with similar troubled hurtful pasts and how each dealt with what happened in their lives.
Hunter was forced to live on his own with some choices that were not favorable and led him to build walls around himself leaving him unable To. trust anyone or allow himself to feel good enough.
Elliot endured pain in the worst of ways but was fortunate to turn his life around with the help of his granny ( who by the way is such an important and fun part of this story ) but has left him shy and vulnerable yet strong in other ways.
I loved that this story was told in dual POV and we witness two different author's writing styles with each of their characters yet when put together they blended so well and the flow of the story was flawless.
This story deals with very deep matters that unfortunately happen in our society daily, just being yourself can alienate you and possibly get you killed .... but Piper and TL both managed to brilliantly draw us in to give us a beautiful story of healing and self worth and yes the title Battered and Bruised But Not Broken holds so true.
I highly recommend this book to everyone, it's beautiful, heartfelt and so well written.
Then you add in the steamy hot sex and have to fan yourself regularly.
All together well done.

I received an ARC e-copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
What an Incredible Story!!
Is it possible to overcome the negative baggage life throws at you and truly enjoy life again?
This is a well written story full of emotions, I was enraptured by the characters and their past. The way Hunter and Elliott interact with each other is so refreshing and endearing.
The characters and their back stories are believable, likable and we'll developed.
Hunter - an ex-convict going through the hoops of his parole, guarded.
Elliott - a shy young man who has his stuff together, protected.
The story moved me as these two men embarked on a journey of self-discovery. Going through some twisted events and unforgiving turns. I do not use spoilers in my review as it ruins the story for some. I rooted for them as the story unfolded.
I recommend this story to those who like STEAM in their reads.
What we got into is a whirlwind novel about two disparate yet equally damaged young men who both experienced the crushing blows of homophobia from their family, as well as a lot of abuse.
Hunter is an ex-con who has trust issues. Elliott is a nerdy man with a whole different set of issues. When they meet, without even knowing the others' name, it's lust at first sight.
Now, I know the insta-lust trope puts some readers off, but please believe me that their emotions at their first meeting are integral to the plot. Don't be put off by it; it means much more than a hook up to start the book hot.
And the book IS hot. So hot. It starts with a teaser of Hunter's past and goes right into a hot oral scene in the back room of a gay nightclub, and the ball gets rolling from there. Chapter one tells you right off the bat what to expect: angst, hot men, and sex. It sounds so simple, but the emotions captured and the issues touched on go much deeper.
These are complex characters in an age-old love story: star-crossed lovers, emotional issues, and pushing the other away. You'll be swooning, fanning yourself, and falling in love with them: not in a romantic way, but in that special way that a reader falls for a fictional character that means so much.
They leap off the page and into your heart as these women put so much hard work into creating them. You might call both Hunter and Elliott AND Piper and TL a match made in Heaven.
