Beautiful Broken Mess (Broken #2) by Kimberly Lauren
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.

When I wrote my review for Beautiful Broken Rules, I stated that I absolutely LOVED, LOVED, LOVED everything about this book!! I’m not sure how this is possible, but I promise you it is…… I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED everything about Beautiful Broken Mess even more!! So amazing! Kimberly Lauren’s writing is like a drug and I need my next fix. Beautiful Broken Mess is Jace and Audrey’s story and what a story it is. The angst, the anticipation, the love, the romance, the emotion, the laughter, and the tears, you will feel every last one of them in such a way that you will find it hard to separate this amazing love story from your reality…..it is just that good!!
~ Jace ~ “I’ve walked passed so many pennies in my life, never bothering to pick them up because none of them were ever appealing to me. Then one day, I literally crashed into the most gorgeous penny I’d ever seen, so I picked her up off the ground, wiped away her tears, and became mesmerized by her every movement. Stupidly, I let that penny get away from me, and I’ve regretted it ever since. You were my lucky penny Audrey and I’ve been dreaming about you for years.”
My God….Jace will melt your soul. Make no mistake; he’ll piss you off too, almost to the point that you wish you could reach into the pages and slap him for being such an idiot, but then he says and does all the right things and you just fall that much deeper in love with him.
And then there’s Lane, the sexy, protective best friend that every girl dreams of. His story Beautiful Broken Promises releases in 2014 and I. Can’t. Wait!!
Take this journey with Jace and Audrey and catch up with Jax, Em, Cole, and Quinn, and meet Lane. A love story that will sweep you away like no other. A love story that will have you laughing and crying. Your heart will break and your soul will melt. A beautifully written, beautifully told love story of a Beautiful Broken Mess.

From meeting Audrey in Beautiful Broken Rules, I didn’t like her. She seemed sneaky and bitchy and territorial with Jax & I didn’t like her actions one bit. BUUUUUT now, Audrey, my friend, I absolutely adore you and feel for you. Your strength and courage and independence carries you and I love you for it. You never give up and all you want is to be heard. How Audrey and Jace meet and their story of misunderstandings consumed me. I was connected to them through their words and each of their POVs sealed the deal. I was kept on my toes and was anxious to see how their story played out. I never expected anything, I’ve learned that from Kimberly’s writing as something can always be hidden around a corner. Audrey and Jace are sexy and emotional and I couldn’t get enough. The ending…if I could melt I would have because it was that emotionally perfect. I love this Broken gang. They call each tier out on their shit and have each other’s backs no matter the situation. And to find out Lane’s story is next excites me to no end!!! Give this a try!! Rating: 4.5 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’.
