Review: So Beautifully Broken, by LACIE NATION

Rating: A definite thumbs up!



I was honored when Lacie approached me with a request to review her debut novel "So Beautifully Broken" and I can't say I was disappointed. It's been awhile since I've read something so heartfelt, and I had to share this with you all. So, here's my review:


From the heartfelt dedication to the author’s friends and family for their wonderful support, to the emotional beginning that hooked me almost immediately, I haven’t laughed, cried, or blushed this much from a story in a long time. Heck, I even hid my face a time or two as I felt the embarrassment, fear, anger, hurt, and happiness throughout...
Lilly has had it rough, and is stuck in her past. She’s been, manipulated, violated, hurt, and can’t let go of the guilt of losing her mother tragically. She blames herself, and thinks she needs the numbing affects of drugs to cope. Back in her home town, she’s offered a job at a club named Tilt where she meets a group of people who understand her pain and love her in spite of it, including the very sexy Jack, a former addict, who also happens to be her new boss.
Memories overwhelm her and she hits rock bottom, receiving a rude awakening when her best friend, and the only person she knows who cares gives her an ultimatum. She either needs to pull her life together, or lose her for good this time. She loathes in self pity going on one more binge before realizing she’s had enough. Its then she turns to the only person she knows who will completely understand what she’s going through for help. She’s in for the fight of her life, as Jack offers her not only his help and home, but his heart as well.

So beautifully Broken is a well written emotional tale that deserves recognition. It’s realistic, heartfelt, and will leave you in awe. I especially loved how strong the heroine was, and how supportive the secondary characters were as she fought to free herself from her personal demons. Of course, it never hurts to add a sexy, kind, protector in the mix either, *winks* just be sure to have a tissue or two at hand.

So here I finish the post with one last thing to say, pick up your copy today if you can. It's a well written emotional read that will definitely leave you wanting more from this author.


Blurb:

Lilly’s entire life has been filled with people who have manipulated, violated, and hurt her beyond repair. She is left feeling as though the numbing affect of drugs is the only way to cope. She’s back in her home town now and starting a new job at Tilt. What happens when she meets a group of people who understand her pain and love her in spite of it? What happens when she meets Jack, her boss and former addict? Will she be able to live a life filled with love and people who support her not tear her down?
Follow Lilly and Jack though their relationship as they fight demons from Lilly’s past that come back with a vengeance.



Best wishes,
