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.

Audrey Mills is a beautiful broken mess. Her life has thrown one obstacle after another and everything always seems to go wrong.
“The catastrophe of a life was inevitable though. My parents began the cycle when they decided that getting high and not using condoms would be a stellar idea.”
Her parents are horrible, disgusting people. They make it known that she is unwanted and all she meant to them was a welfare check. They made me sick. At the lowest point in her life, she meets Jace.
Jace is perfect, beautiful inside and out. She is swept off her feet during their first encounter. He is sweet and kind—just what Audrey needs.
“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.”
Audrey’s thoughts: Floor. Puddle. Me. Holy Hell.
I was a puddle too. He is that perfect!
Things go in a horrible take a horrible turn for the worst and mistakes are made. They go their separate ways, but both Audrey and Jace never have forgotten their connection.

“I want to be here for you from now on. I want to hold you safe all night and watch you wake up in the mornings. I want your happy, forgiving spirit to ease my soul everyday.”
Jace and Audrey have a bumpy ride. They are so in love, yet face so many challenges. You fall in love with these characters and root for them to find their HEA. Jace is HOT and says the most romantic things.
“I’ve walked passed so many pennies in my life, never bothering to pick them up because none of them were ever appealing to me. Then one day, I literally crashed into the most gorgeous penny I’d ever seen, so I picked her up off the ground, wiped away her tears, and became mesmerized by her every movement. Stupidly, I let that penny get away from me, and I’ve regretted it ever since. You were my lucky penny, Audrey, and I’ve been dreaming about you for years.”
Do they get their fairytale ending? Can they overcome their obstacles? You have to read to find out! This was a great follow up to Beautiful Broken Rules. We reunite with all the characters and fall in love with them all over again!

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'.
