Even after years of trauma therapy, Peyton still believes she’s broken. She has little desire to date or show off her natural beauty, content simply to hang out with her best friends and run her pie shop in New Orleans. But her world turns upside-down when a handsome architect and self-confessed player shows up in her shop and thinks she’s perfect, much more than the usual hook-up. While Peyton does her best to resist his charms, believing she could never be enough for him, she can’t deny the obvious heat between them. With Reed determined to have her, Peyton must decide whether to continue to hide behind her apron and baggy clothes or take a chance and share her scars with Reed, a man with a playboy reputation and scars of his own -- a dark past he can’t possibly share with Peyton, not after learning the horrors she’s endured. But if they can find a way to trust each other, and themselves, they just might be able to heal, to save each other, to live perfectly broken together.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

This novel is fundamentally soul shattering. It is also provocatively written. Lane draws you in through her intensely captivating writing style and keeps you there were her hard hitting and emotional story. This author makes it easy to immerse yourself in the story and feel for the characters while at the same time understanding every angle of the story. It was a unique trip.

I loved the in depth characters with serious backgrounds. The main characters both had some very hard knocks in life that may have put others out of the running for a fulfilling life, yet these characters worked through it in their own way. At the same time, there was nothing at all unbelievable in their stories, simply hard to swallow at times for its realism. The supporting cast also really added to this story. They not only served to back up the main characters and to highlight their personality quirks but they really rounded out the story nicely.

As a whole this was a brilliant way to immerse myself in Lane’s writing for the first time. Not only would I easily recommend it to others but it has sparked an interest in other works of hers.
