Review

"I dare you to try and not fall in love with Reed! I loved loved loved Surviving Broken!" - AL Jackson - New York Times Bestselling Author

"This was a true roller coaster ride of emotions. Anger, Compassion, Joy, Laughter, Passion. This book had it all, and then some!" - Books and Beyond Fifty Shades

"A powerful story of hope and love! Ms. Preston's best yet. The range of emotions she pulls from the reader is tangible. Reed is the kind of man readers can get lost in." - Denise - Shh Mom's Reading

"This book has all the hallmarks of great Mathews Family book; hot sex, hilarious antics, and loving family moments. This newest addition was darker and more complex but I found that in stretching herself artistically, Beverly Preston has achieved a singularly extraordinary book." - Fictional Book Ho's

"Reed Rider! He is no doubt the ultimate Book Boyfriend! Hot, sexy, and swoon worthy!" - Karrie - Panty Dropping Book Blog

"Beverly knocked my socks off! Reed *sigh* will make your panties melt...polite, confident, strong, GORGEOUS and a little bit broken. A MUST MUST MUST read!" - Kristie's Reviews

"Beverly has proved she is absolutely not a one trick pony wonder and can certainly deliver fab, hot, sexy and emotional romantic pieces of very visual escapism." - Michelle - The Romance Vault

From the Author

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

This is a novel that takes a look at domestic violence and the consequences to those that are the victims of this abuse. The lasting scars to those that have found themselves abused by those they trusted are not easy to heal.

JC Mathews has a wonderful family, fantastic job and not a care in the world until the day she let her guard down. She met a hot, sexy man at her sister’s wedding and decided to not follow her normal rules about men. She finds herself in an abusive relationship without a way out! When she is almost beaten beyond recognition she knows she must find a way to escape. Her step-father finds her and gets her back to her family. Will she ever be able to trust a man again?

Reed Rider is a true Texan! He is just like the state he comes from, bigger than life. He is also a very big, sexy man that is a protector of those weaker and in need of protection. Reed has inherited his aunt’s house next to JC’s parents. From the first moment he laid eyes on JC he knew she was the one for him. Can he show her that not all men are unworthy of trust? Will she give him a chance even if he is a 6 ft. 4, 200 plus male?

JC and Reed begin a friendship. They spend time talking, sharing and building trust between them. Her family is overly protective since they rescued her from her abusive ex and worry about this budding relationship. Reed has his job cut out not only to prove himself to JC, but also to her family. Will the past keep them from finding a future together?

Although this book dealt with physical abuse, which for anyone is hard to imagine, I loved this book! J.C Mathews did not believe in love or relationships! When J.C. met Luca, her new brother in law's best man, his charisma had her and the next thing she was living with him. Things were okay, but slowly she noticed that he was very possessive and did not want her going anywhere without him! He became physically abusive! She is rescued by her stepfather,Tom and brought back home. She slowly starts to heal when she meets Reed her new next door neighbor skinny dipping in her pool! Reed is a true Texan and calls her "darlin"! J.C. finds herself attracted to this Texan and a relationship starts to bloom! This is a love story where true love conquers all! Five stars for Beverly Preston!

Beverly Preston sucked me in once again and I did absolutely nothing until I finished this book. She sent me into a roller coaster of emotions but it was well worth it. I loved JC's story and I am glad that she finally found the love of her life. You are going to want to jump into the story and kick, scream and punch people but keep on reading. Beverly knows what she is doing. Keep reading and push through because you know it will get better. I am trying to not give anything away and spoil the book for you. I loved the entire series but this may be the best one yet. I look forward to hearing more about the family and I hope she is not done. I would love to have more updates on the family members and I would love to know about JC and Reed.

This book can easily be read stand alone. This book is Ms. Preston’s best yet, the range of emotions she pulls from the reader is tangible - so jump right in and enjoy!

Surviving Broken is the story of JC Mathews, the youngest of Tess’ children and the one who has the closest bond to Tom, Tess’s second husband (whom she married after her first husband’s death). I want to pause here and say I loved hearing from Tom in this book and those scenes were just WOW.

Ok back to JC...as I said this book is powerful, this book, as the title suggests, is first about how JC’s broken, be warned the first part of this book will break your heart and part of your soul as JC is so lost and hurt I wanted to reach into my kindle and hug her.

As JC’s journey moves forward (no I wont tell you the broken and I wont tell you how she moves forward because I truly think the reader needs to experience this first hand) the reader can feel her trying to heal, trying to put the pieces back together.

When JC meets Reed and then re-meets him, the sparks are tangible. JC learning to open her heart again, JC allowing Reed to care and love her and JC experiencing Reed’s past pain all solidified for me that this is a forever love.

Reed’s understanding of JC’s past and her pain, his desire to help her heal, "eyes on me Darlin"....so many things that made me love Reed!! Reed is the kind of man readers can get lost in, the kind of man you wish you could curl up with and smile into his eyes.

Reed’s past was so heart pulling; the scenes when he returns hope to Texas allows the reader to understand him even more and also speaks volumes to the love JC feels deep in her soul for him.
