Review: Beautiful Broken Rules

Beautiful Broken Rules
Beautiful Broken Rules by Kimberly Lauren

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Harlot. Floozy. Tramp. Slut. Whore.

No matter what you call her, the meaning of “slut” is still the same. A slut is a woman who casually sleeps around with many different partners. That’s Emerson Moore in a nutshell. She’s the school slut and everybody knows it and she is shockingly okay with that stigma.

Honestly, Emerson was on the cusp of being too stupid to live, but she somehow managed NOT to get on my last nerve with her antics. I cringed a little bit each time one of her bed buddies mentioned having sex with her in front of 20 other man-boys who also slept with her. I’m not a slut-shamer, but GAH! Have some standards for goodness sake! Well, in her defense, she does have those stupid rules… I suppose if you limit yourself to only sleeping with each guy a max of three times before moving on and you don’t plan to abstain, then you have to keep it movin’ in the bedroom department. Even with her stupidity and bed hopping, I still loved her. In life, she got the short end of the stick in some respects, but hit the jackpot in other areas. But, instead of dealing with the rough stuff, she internalizes her issues even when she has a slew of people in her life to support her and help her get better – NOT. GOOD.

Sexy football star and love interest, Jaxson is a total dreamboat. A Godsend. But he’s a boy and boys are stupid, so he had several too stupid to live moments as well. Author, Kimberly Lauren did a great job creating multi-dimensional characters that you really just can’t help but love. So, even when Jax was being a jackass, I wanted to put him in my pocket and take him home with me.

BEAUTIFUL BROKEN RULES is a fine example of what I love in a romance. I am very excited to read about Jaxson’s identical twin, Jace finding love in book two; in fact, I can’t wait to read about the plethora of single and sexy males that were left hanging, in the wake of Jaxson and Emerson’s love affair. If you love New Adult Romance, you should consider this read, especially if you like a story that is full of love, lust and angst, in which case, BEAUTIFUL BROKEN RULES should hit the spot!

P.S. Suggestion… Since Jace IS Jaxson’s identical twin, shouldn’t the cover model be the same guy? Just an observation – they look different to me.
