Beautiful Broken Rules Review + Giveaway

Beautiful Broken Rules
Author: Kimberly Lauren
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

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?


I gave Beautiful Broken Rules five leaves! I stumbled upon this book and it hit me hard, yet I definitely have no regrets. Kimberly Lauren’s debut novel is fantastic. It has not one, but three hot, amazing guys. There’s Cole, the best friend womanizer, Jaxon, the motorcycle-riding bad boy, and last but not least, Jace, the pre-med hottie. Don’t worry, although there’s plenty of sexual tension, this is not a story of a love square or even a love triangle, it is clear from the beginning who Em is going to end up with. I thought Em was a great heroine. I identified with her a lot because she is blunt, feisty, promiscuous but guarded, looking for fun, and scared of relationships. Of course, there are many moments when I wanted to strangle the lead characters, but I loved them and all their issues nevertheless. The dialogue cracked me up, Em’s issues pulled at my heartstrings, the steamy scenes turned me on, and all in all this book is just emotional and the perfect package. I really hope Kimberly Lauren plans to write a spin-off or continuation, despite the pretty happily ever after found in this one.

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'.
