Book Review: Beautiful Broken Rules

Beautiful Broken Rules by Kimberly Lauren: What happens when you create rules to keep others out?

One thing Emerson Moore has come to terms with is that she is the school slut. She knows her way around a frat house and how to get what she wants. She doesn't make any excuses for her actions and she doesn't pretend to be anything different. She is who she is and with that she knows how to have a good time. She’s made rules to keep relationships at bay and avoid the demons of her past.

When her best friend, Cole has his two friends from back home move in with him she begins to think she has met her match with Jaxon Riley. Jax is the perfect mixture of tattooed muscle and a sweet-talking mouth. With “hand” written notes, a voice that exudes sex and knowing just how to get under her skin, Jaxon learns how to break all the rules. But will he just end up breaking her heart anyway?

New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance - recommended for ages 18 and up.

TeriLyn's thoughts: Absolutely LOVED this book. Instantly became one of my favorites. Jaxon and Emerson are really, really great. It was beautifully complicated, real, funny, witty, and passionate. Jaxon and Emerson bring out the best in each other without even realizing it. A story where two people who aren't even looking find each other and work through their brokenness together is always compelling to me. Emerson has built up her walls and created her rules in order to not get her heart broke. She is spunky, full of life, and could care less what other people think about her. She lives her life the way she wants to live it. And Jaxon, to an extent, has built walls up to. He is looking for a redo from the mistakes that he has made. Sparks fly when they first see each other though, they both feel it. Their first meeting is pretty hysterical because to any other person than Emerson it would have been humiliating. 

As you'll learn from my reviews, I love a relationship that's built from a solid friendship and that's what Jaxon and Emerson create. They both know they are extremely attracted to each other and completely compatible but they keep each other at arm's length and become great friends. They laugh, they banter, and they love their friends. The group of friends is equally as great. Cole, Quinn, and Emerson fiercely love each other. And both Jaxon and Jase feel the same way once they are assimilated into the group. This was a brilliant debut from Kimberly Lauren; I totally devoured it. It was easy to read and easy to root for her characters. I'll be reading this again and look forward to more great things from her!
