Perfectly Broken by Prescott Lane


Contemporary Romance
Date Published: March 2014

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.


 I have never been much for books that have you flipping from different points of view through them, but this book was an exception. I really enjoyed this book and the characters. The banter between the characters will have you laughing or at least smiling like a crazy person ( I know this because my husband asked what I was smiling at while I was reading lol). It broke my heart knowing that Peyton blamed her "old-self" for the attack, which is why she now wears the baggy clothes and is shy. I just want to throw in here that Peyton's therapist is the bomb, I have never personally had a therapist, however if I did ever need one I would wish for one like that. 

Reed, oh Reed, what to say about that sexy man???? One word that comes to mind is RELENTLESS! That man just doesn't give up lol. He is just so yummy and even though he is your typical player, he begins to change. Peyton knows she deserves more than he is offering, but also, and  I feel Peyton's pain in this, she feels dirty, used up and that once he finds out he won't want her anymore. Despite what she thinks she cannot help but be drawn and attracted to him. I think the chemistry between the two is amazing and lovely to read. There is a lot of drama and excitement stuck in this book and I have loved every minute of it as well as loved all the characters. I have never read a book by this author before, but I will most certainly check out more of her works from here on out.
