My Book Review:
Can two people overcome their painful pasts and learn to live perfectly broken together?
After a traumatic event and years of therapy sessions, Peyton Mayfield still feels broken. She lives a quiet life working in her grandmother's New Orleans bakery. She detracts attention from herself and hides her natural beauty by dressing unprovocatively in baggy clothing. She has little desire to date as she doesn't trust easily, choosing only to socialize with her best friends Quinn and Bret.
Reed Langston is a wealthy successful architect, who is known to be a major player, a commitment-phobe who doesn't do relationships ... just casual sex. That is until he meets Peyton ...
Peyton meets Reed when her best friend Quinn's boyfriend Brett brings him to the bakery. There is an instant attraction, but when she finds out about Reed's reputation Peyton resists his charms and shies away, only making him more determined to win her heart. Can Peyton let go of her traumatic past and open herself up to Reed?
Perfectly Broken is a captivating romantic love story about two broken people who come together and help each other heal and learn to love.
Written in the third person narrative and set in the vibrant city of New Orleans, author Prescott Lane weaves a beautifully written tale full of pain, angst, drama, humor, and tender romantic moments that easily draws the reader into Peyton and Reed's story. The slow building development of their relationship makes this compelling story worth the read, as their instant attraction and sexual chemistry is put to the test by the remnants of their dark pasts. You can't help but feel for Peyton as she struggles with deep traumatic scars, as well as for Reed who struggles with being wrongly judged by his family his entire life. The author does a wonderful job of balancing the serious issues of Peyton and Reed's pasts with their flirty and playful budding relationship.
Perfectly Broken has an intriguing cast of characters who are realistic,flawed, and easy to relate to; witty dialogue and engaging interactions; a flirty fun New Orleans setting; and a breathtaking storyline that will tug at your heartstrings and stir your soul.
If you are looking for a hopeful love story that follows the journey of two broken people who learn to let go of their dark pasts and open themselves up to a healing and loving relationship, then Perfectly Broken is the story for you!
