Jacqueline
I’m messed up. I could say it was a result of my childhood, but honestly I blame myself. The medicine made me feel numb, the blood made me feel high. He wasn’t supposed to be mine, but although he was scared in the beginning, he didn’t run from my demons. He found beauty in my flaws, beauty in the cracks that barely held me together.

Lee…
“I was nursing a broken heart when I met her – as was she.”

Jacqueline…
“I met Lee and he taught me how to live. He became my cure.”


This was a story about two broken and scarred people, who found happiness together.

Lee and Jacqueline were both scarred individuals, both emotionally and physically. Both had mother-issues, both had problems with love and intimacy, and both had people i

This was an okay read, but it's my least favorite in the series so far.

I felt really sorry for Jacqueline. Having a a drug addict as a mother, and then being passed around different foster homes like a game of pass the parcel must have been tough.
It took me a while to warm to Lee. The comments he made about Jacqueline not being normal, and talking about her like she would be a huge burden if he dated her because of a mental illness she had annoyed me. As if the poor girl hadn't had enough of th

Is anyone really and truly 'normal' ? I know I'm not , we're all a little broken one way or another. It's just a case of finding that certain someone who will love us unconditionally for who we are no matter how broken we are . It's that special someone who will help us all mend .
This is a truly beautifully written story about two dysfunctional people who become friends and eventually after a few ups and downs fall in love .
After reading Parker and Madalynne's story I wasn't sure if I would en

BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN BY: KIRA ADAMS  
 
     I was so excited to see Lee and Jacqueline's story! I knew that Jacqueline had a rough past, but it was heartbreaking finally getting the full story. I absolutely love some of the harsher aspects of life and people's issues that Adams explores in her novels. Everything always feels genuine and real. Bipolar disorder isn't something I have read about before, and I found it refreshing to explore here. I think there was a lot of care in how it was brought ou

Beautifully Broken begins with us getting to know a little of each main characters back round and how they come together for the first time. Lee has had a hard past when it comes to relationships, and every time he gets hurt he falls back to his player ways, but sometimes that just isn't enough for him and he wants to change. Jacqueline hasn't had an easy life at all, and she's never really felt like she's been loved before and she's had her hurt broken several times. But when she meets Lee thin ...more

Jacqueline is broken and has secrets hidden. She grew up with a crappy life which made her strive to do the best she can under the circumstances.

Lee self destructs without realizing it. He has dealt with stuff in the past that has him pushing everything against getting attached and loving.

What happens when you're broken and someone out of the blue becomes your healing aide? Guess you'll have to read this to find out!!

So far, this has been my favorite book in their series. I really liked Lee and I feel like brothers Lee or Jacqueline drew out their problems or relationship, which was a very nice change of pace. I didn't feel super connected to either character though. I can't relate to the problems that the characters face in this story, so I think that explains the emotional disconnect. As o said this story was the most enjoyable so far.

Jacqueline Blunt has had more hardships in her life than any other person her age. She's went through being diagnosed with a disorder which would cause others around her to judge her quickly, being left without parents due to her mother being a drug addict and her father leaving, and also just having to deal with all of that herself.

Beautifully Broken: The Infinite Love Series, Book Three (Kindle Edition)
This was a very well written and wonderful novel. I loved how Kira Adams was able to bring together two lost souls, both romantically after being broken hearted, and figuratively in regard to dysfunction within their lives. The author addresses the loss of a mother to drugs, the effects of the foster care system, the drawbacks of emancipation as a teen, the effects of a

Description: Jacqueline Blunt hasn’t had an easy life. In fact, she’s had anything but. From a drug addicted mother to being bounced around in foster care, Jacqueline longed for one thing—normalcy. Lee Bennett had everything he could ever want—girls falling all over him, a dream job, money. The one thing he was missing? Passion.

Sometimes the ones worth fighting for don’t know their worth. Sometimes being broken is beautiful. This is a story of s

I love Author Kira Adam's style of writing, her boldness and her ability to take any subject (no matter how upsetting) and make it informative, enlightening and factual so that it gives the reader a sense of power in knowing the facts about different forms of addiction, mental illnesses and how it affects the people who have them as

Actual rating: 3.5 stars.

I was rather hesitant to read Beautifully Broken since I had a lot of trouble connecting with one of the main characters of its predecessor, My Forever. I like connecting with them and said character turned out to be one extremely hard to like. Fortunately, I didn't have trouble liking the characters of Beautifully Broken. They were far better written and I liked how they are so intense and passionate.

This was such an interesting book! The characters were wonderfully flawed and it takes your emotions for a ride.

Jacqueline and Lee are encouraged to start communicating at the behest of Maddy, a mutual…friend/ex. Maddy has found her happily-ever-after, but in all her wisdom, she pairs these two together. And what a match!

I loved how flawed the characters were. It was hard for me to believe that two people could go through so much, but it was wonderful to see that they were able to do it together

I liked this book a bit more better than book one. I guess it is because we got two broken people who learn to come together and accept each others flaws that it makes the story work. The good thing about this series is that they it can be a stand alone. You don't have to read book one to figure out who these people are. But it is nice to have their back story in a way.

Review on Author:
Author Kira Adams did a good job on this book. I was a little skeptical reading this book because I wasn’t that happy with how Lee and Jacqueline were involved in Book 1, “My Forever”. After giving the book a chance I found the book to be better written.

Review of Story:
For a YA book, the story line was on point. The book contains serious life situations and how people cope with them; such as Bipolar Disorder and cutters. This

I feel like a broken record, but Kira Adams does it again with another well written YA/NA romance.

While this could be a stand alone book, it's the third installment in the Infinite Love Series.

When Parker chooses Madalynne over Jacqueline, it's enough to possibly send Jacqueline over the edge. When Madalynne chooses Parker over Lee, Lee is crushed to the point of maybe never wanting to love again. But when Lee and Jacqueline are set up by Madalynne, both of their lives change for the better.

Loved it the ending you wanna know?? Read it! Tease ! actually it ended and the next in the series is about another character. So yes to answer the question it ended and NO cliffhanger

Grief and the service of our armed forces were at the center of book 1. So if you have not read that then STOP go read it. We know Jacqueline and Lee have taken to being alone now and are friends with Parker and Maddy. This makes me happy. So no secret that Lee was the lime on top of my Corona and Jaqueline, well

This is yet another really great read by Kira. After reading Parker and Maddy’s story I didn’t think I was going to enjoy Lee and Jacqueline’s story as much, I was however proven wrong, and I am so happy I was. Lee and Jacqueline both had a hard time in book one, both had their baggage and both dumped by loved ones. After seeing these two in the first book I didn’t really gel with them, I think it was in my mind that they were interfering with what I wanted the outcome to be. In this book howeve ...more

Lee has always been a lady's man, going from one girl to the next, but all that changed when he met Madalynne. Falling head over heels, he put his heart on the line, only for her to chose her childhood sweetheart.
