But fortunately, some Christmas moolah from my dad—who doesn’t know I read smut and never will—and I bought a crap load of books, and Beautiful Broken Rules happened to be one of them.
This new-adult romance was grittier, angstier, and all around better than I expected.
Emerson sleeps around. She doesn’t want a relationship and has three rules she always follows.
1. Never sleep with someone that a friend has feelings for.
2. Never sleep with someone that’s in a relationship.
3. Never sleep with someone more than three times.
She follows these rules to a T, and truly believes she will never be in a relationship because of past experiences that shaped her into believing love only hurts. Was her reasoning believable? Honestly, no. The whole driving force behind her rules wasn't convincing, but I was enjoying the story enough not to care.
Her first meeting with Jax is great. She’s doing the walk of shame out of a frat house in only her underwear because she couldn’t find her clothes.
This was actually a pretty long book, I thought. And I honestly never grew bored once. The conflict was perfectly done to keep me interested all the way through. The build of up of Jax's and Em's relationship was really well done - from friends to friends with benefits to lovers - and while I was a little bummed this wasn't that steamy, there was enough to keep me invested.
This might have been a five star read for me if the editing didn’t make me want to smack my head on something. There was no definite tense—it switched from past to present and it was super distracting. I know some people don’t notice tenses, but it’s one of those things that’s glaringly obvious to me.
Overall, a NA romance with a touch of sports that I’d recommend to angst lovers.
But when she meets her match in Jax those walls around her heart begin to wobble and have no choice but the crumble. It takes a strong person to go head to head with Emerson's fierce independence and luckily he's up for the challenge.
There's that romantic angst that keeps you hooked and that steamy chemistry that keeps you blushing. The way Kimberly Lauren's writes her story has me so immersed that the outside world completely disappeared.
This is definitely a story you need to add to your library.
I just love being surprised by an indie writer! Of course I downloaded this book because of the cover. Beautiful and HOT...right? It pulled me in and I needed to know more about these people. So great marketing there. The book description didn't grab me...sounded typical with a little twist, but the high ratings did...so I gave it a go.
The writing pulled me in right away. The story is not a new one, but the characters grab you instantly and make you want to know more about each one. Emerson/Em, Jaxon, Jace, Cole, and Quinn...they are all just so likeable. I am pretty sure that I died a little reading this book. It is just so intense at times (yep...bring on the angst!)...it definitely got the adrenaline pumping. ...and Epilogues. Wow, have I mentioned how much I love them. I loved that the entire book was through Emerson's POV and the the Epilogue was from Jaxon's. Yum! The insight made it that much sweeter. It was worth the 4 hours of sleep, freakin puffy sleepless eyes, and the grumpy, irritable, and edgy attitude this morning. Again...let me say it...totally worth it! This is a fast and light read with good writing, fun characters, with just enough angst, and maybe a little too much running and lack of communicating to make me a little crazy...but totally worth it by the end. Great fist book Kimberly Lauren! Delicious...and I devoured it! Must.Have.More!
My first impression of Kimberly has been a great experience and I'm so excited to read more of her books!
