We welcome Kimberley Lauren to the blog with her 2nd novel Beautiful Broken Mess. Definitely one of my favorite series of mine this year. 

Beautiful Broken Mess Blog Tour Banner


Jace Riley’s close connection with his identical twin brother, Jaxon, is put to the test when he tries to choose between keeping his promises and following his heart. Is this girl that still haunts his dreams, even after four years, really worth it? Jace can’t help but wonder if he made a huge mistake all that time ago when he let her walk into someone else’s arms, especially since that someone was his twin.

Audrey Mills often wonders at what point she should throw her hands up in defeat and allow all of the horrible circumstances of her life to overtake her. Despite the demons she has faced, however, something inside her won’t give in. When she leaves her small town in Texas to attend college in California, Audrey runs into the one guy who could make her or break her. But is the past they share too painful for them to overcome?

This is the second book in the broken series. While each book can stand on its own, it's recommended you read Beautiful Broken Rules before Beautiful Broken Mess.

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



I had looked forward to this 2nd book of the Broken series with Jace and Audrey's Story. Throughout the first book Beautiful Broken Rules, we get a glimpse of Audrey when she came back into town, with everyone thinking she was going to cause trouble. I thought she was a wicked thing who was out to ruin Jaxon and Emerson's relationship however, this book proved me wrong.

The story unfolds from dual point of views, to tell us the story behind how Jace and Audrey first met. But when one night after they met, went terrible wrong with a bad case of judgement and decisions, turned it all upside down. We read through the journey of both fighting to try and move on from the one person you have always wanted to be with. It was inevitable that these two belonged together. 

"I like you Audrey. I plan to take you out and kiss you goodnight over and over until you agree to let me do it all again the next night."~Jace

In later years, life choices brings these two back together for which proves to be another second or third chance at love.
Through the ups and downs of hiding secrets from family members, we see a beautiful heartwarming side to Jace and the connection with his twin brother Jaxon.

"Im still so drawn to you. It's like nothing has changed in the past four years. You still feel like a breath of fresh air compared to every girl I've met before. I kept telling myself it was a good thing we didn't work out, that there was a reason for it. I kept telling myself  there was someone better out there for you and for me." ~ Jace

Overall another well written novel from Kimberly. I have been a huge fan of her work since the release of the first book Beautiful Broken Rules. A fabulous romantic must read. 



 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'.
