It’s been a while since my last bookreview. I’m going to be honest with you because that doesn’t mean I didn’t read in the last few weeks. Actually I read a lot. I just haven’t had a very clear opinion on the books I’ve read. They were okay, and some of them I really liked but I didn’t felt the need to read about them. Anyways, that time has come to an end because I just finished Broken Beautiful Hearts and I do have a lot to say about this book. Are you curious if my reading experience were positive?
Her heart has to break before it can open.
When star soccer player Peyton Rios receives an offer from her first-choice college, senior year starts off exactly as planned. But when Peyton uncovers her boyfriend’s dark secret, she confronts him—and finds herself falling down a flight of stairs. Peyton’s knee—and maybe her dream of going pro—is shattered. Everyone is talking: Was she pushed, or did she fall? Peyton knows the truth, even if no one believes her.
He has to let someone in before it’s too late.
With her future on the line, Peyton goes to stay with her uncle in a small Tennessee town to focus on her recovery. Dating is the last thing on her mind—until she meets sweet, sexy Owen Law.
But Peyton doesn’t trust her heart, especially when she senses that Owen is hiding something. When their secrets are finally exposed, Peyton has to decide if love is worth fighting for.
First of all I have to say I really love the main characters name, Peyton. It brings back a lot of good (very good!) memories of my favorite high school series One Tree Hill. For those of you who haven’t seen this tv show, I will write a blogpost about it very soon. So back to the book.
After reading the synopsis I couldn’t wait to dive in. This story was emotional, all consuming and very beautiful. I finished the book in two days so it really was a page turner for me from the very first page. The story has the typical high school drama in it, but also incorporate sand addresses difficult and complex topics regarding manipulation, physical and emotional abuse and dealing with parental death.
I really liked Peyton in this book. She has a very strong personality while she had to deal with lots of stuff you won’t have to deal with at that age. I always like to read about someone that’s so strong. Who I also liked where the cousins from Peyton. They were selfless but also very loyal to Peyton. I became so invested in each character’s story.
Kami did a good job writing this novel. It just flowed and in no matter of time, I was flying through. It’s still unique when a writer can write a story on a manner you could picture everything within your mind. Especially for Americans I could see how this could be similar to many people’s high school experience and that is a terrifying thing!
This story was amazing and I’m happy to recommending the book to you all. It’s just released this month. I loved how the main character Peyton was very strong and independent but she could also accept some help once in a while. Although I never heard of Kami before, I find her writing deep, intense, and poetic. Please go read this one and tell me your thoughts about it below in the comments or on my Bookstagram. 🙂
