** I received an advanced readers copy direct from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

Kelly Lincoln is a new author to me. When she reached out to me about reviewing her book I thought why not. I'm always in the market to find new authors to follow and books to read. A lot of times, when it's possible, I don't read the synopsis so that the book is a complete surprise. That was the case with thi

This was my first read by Kelly Lincoln. I was first interested in the story by the plot and I really liked the idea of a single mom trying to make a life for her and her daughter.

Brooke was a fun heroine. She has some signs of post dramatic stress disorder because of different things that happened in her life. She is 100% dedicated to her daughter Mia. Mia is her world and her number one priority. Brooke’s sister has lived next door to h

I only had to read the synopsis of this story by Kelly Lincoln, to know I was going to love it! I am a sucker for single parent stories. Doesn’t matter if it’s the guy or the girl, I’m in! This is the story of Brooke and her daughter Mia and what happens when the condo next door has a hot new owner.

Chris is such a wonderful man. I could just imagine him wanting to take care of Brooke and Mia, even if it was nothing more than friendly neighbors. Brooke was holding on to a lot of bagga

This was the first time I have read Kelly Lincoln, and boy did I LOVE this story!

Five years ago she thought life was perfect, when it all came crumbling down in one night. Now she battles demons, is constantly looking over her shoulder, suffers panic attacks, and has no relationships outside her daughter and family. Once again her life changes when Chris moves next do

This is a very, very good adult contemporary romance novel written by Kelly Lincoln and you will NOT regret reading it. I truly enjoyed reading every page and to be totally honest, I could not bring myself to stop reading this book. This is the love story of Brooke, her five year old daughter Mia and the sexy neighbor who end up purchasing her sister’s condo next door.

Brooke is a single mother but her daughter, Mia was not the result of a loving relationship. Soon after graduating and obtaining

I don’t even know where to begin with this book, this simply was a read I loved. Kelly Lincoln outdid herself in Beyond Repair. Kelly is a new author for me and let me say, she created such a strong and moving story. Kelly is able to take such a hard subject and show us what happens when the dust settles and the victim has to deal with demons left after something very tragic. Be prepared to smile, to cry, to get to the point you want to scream and cry! This book will give you a ride but in the e ...more

This is my first book by Kelly Lincoln. It was good read. Although the book deals with post-traumatic stress issues and hit does have triggers and flashbacks in it. But the characters had a good story line. The emotions run high with this book, with heartache and tragedy.

A mother’s love for her child is definitely one of the core themes in this story. The subtler but no less substantial theme is the importance of a mother to not loose herself and her need for happiness.

It happens to the best of parents that you tend to lose yourself in the act of parenting. But you deserve happiness as much as your children do. As simple as it seems, it is easily forgotten. So most parents can relate to this element of the story.

Brooke is a graphic designer, who has a daughter, Mia. She is content with her life as a mother, quite happy to plod along and dote on Mia. Her sister Zoey, has other ideas, and tries tirelessly to set her up on a date.

She meets her new neighbour, Chris, and she feels something she has not felt in a very long time. Attraction. He flustered her with his big arms, long, tall body and his all round sexiness.

They both have painful pasts, but as their feelings grow, they know that to move forward wit

“I needed nothing more at that moment than to feel him against me, taking me back to last night when everything was perfect. I put my hand on his arm, letting out an involuntary sigh as I looked at him. God, he was so frigging tall. He leaned down toward me. I stood on my tiptoes… And got the worst cramp in my foot ever. ‘Sh*t!’ I exclaimed as I tripped over into him.” Talk about the worst c*ck block ever and not to mention such an embarrassing moment.

My opinion I could have given this book more than five stars. The book follows the life of Brooke and her daughter Mia. Brooke years ago was in love with Jake he had bought her a puppy, around the puppy’s neck was an engagement ring. From that day Brooke thought she had everything she could have ever wanted. But as quick as he gave her the ring he had left her for another woman. From that moment Brooke decided that she was not going to be in a relationship

So many emotions swirled through me throughout the entire story, I cried and laughed, and felt so many more. This story does include flashbacks of a rape, and includes some triggers, just putting that out there. It does take the heroine some time to deal with her emotions and the aftermath of the rape, its completely ...more

I've never had one story, just about 30 chapters, make me feel so many emotions! I would be swooning over Chris and his gorgeous abs and melting over the emotional relationship building between him and Brooke... then the next thing I know, I'm having an anxiety attack right alongside Brooke, or screaming mad, or just plain bawling my eyes out.

Beyond Repair by Kelly Lincoln is a book about two souls that are each broken believing they are beyond repair, at least in their own eyes.

Brooke is a single parent living to provide the best life possible for her daughter, Mia. She doesn’t do relationships; her focus is her family and Mia. However, her past has caused her to be a shadow of her former self – no longer social, but more withdrawn. Chris has his own past that has pushed the idea that he needs to be alone, not allowing another pers

This book comes with the warning that it contains explicit language, graphic sexual content, and sensitive topics that may be triggers to some readers, so reader discretion is advised.

Beyond Repair is more than just a romance novel. It is about love, loss, and second chances. It is the first book I've read by Kelly Lincoln, but it wont be the last. She does a great job building the charcter's story, including a past and present, and making you want to see what the future holds for them as well. While it does have the typical steamy love scenes, they do not dominate the book, and the story is a good one! I feel for Brooke, and fall in love with Chris right along with her. Ther ...more

You know how you either have a friend or know someone that is really lovely and you just want them to meet someone because you know they deserve to be with someone equally as special. This book is a story about two people who meet and are just meant to be together, well in my opinion anyway :-)

Brooke lives a pretty closed off life, raising her daughter, working and pretty much keeping her head down. She is very close to her family but even they get excluded from her life when she wants to shut
