What a page turner !!!! Emerson was adopted into money, not for love but for status. She was raised properly and married off to David, plenty of money, arrogant rich boy. An accident happened early in their marriage that David blamed Emerson for. He and his parents made her life hell. Her only friend was the hired help, Andrew, who helped her out a lot with David when he was drunk and at his nastiest. One night he took out one of his pride and joys a one-off Bugatti and totalled it

BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED is a love story, but really it’s more about Emerson Dawson, and her own journey from an obedient, trapped, abused wife, to a flourishing, independent, self-confident person. When Emerson’s wealthy and abusive husband, David, crashes his expensive, luxury vehicle, he sends Emerson with the car to babysit it while it’s being repaired. I loved this original concept that placed Emerson in a new world—one of casual, small town race car drivers, and snarky sexy mechanics like Dono ...more

Sometimes married life is not just hearts and roses. Being in a no-love married life with a man who is an asshole is not easy. And when he forces her to car-sit his car she is going in and want's to have that as an excuse for relaxing.
But her time there is not that relaxing that she wishes for. Meeting a man who will fix hr husbands car is not something she expected.
And sometimes life can turn our lives upside down.

The book that pull me in and gave me all the feels.

Wow! This book was so much more than I had expected. It was an amazing story that is written very well.

Emerson is a woman who has lost herself to guilt and Donovan is a man who is willing to do anything to show her that she doesn’t deserve the way she lives.

Beautifully Restored is a heart wrenching, must read page-turner and I highly recommend it to all Romance lovers.

Pretty good read...needs more steam?

Pretty good read. There were a few grammar issues but the storyline was good. Could have been a little....steamer. At times I thought it was "going to get good" and then nothing. If it was meant to be semi-steamy then I guess it does that.

When I first began reading this book, I thought it was going to be about a snobby rich girl, who always gets what she wants…. when she wants. I was completely wrong; this book was so much more… I found myself reading at all hours of the night unable to put this book down. I had so much disgust for Emerson’s husband David that all I wanted was for her to find happiness. She is forced to stay in a marriage where she is not respected or appreciated. Her husband who is still babied by his parents, b ...more

Cheaters never win

Em is married to a monster. He didn't appear that way in the beginning but an accident they were in took his left-hand his humanity. She vows to take all the abuse from him though because it was "her fault".
Van and his people are rough. They have no problem calling things as they are. They all know something is wrong with this bizarre Bugatti babysitting job Em is sent on by her husband as they repair it.
They just aren't prepared for how bad it can be. HEA

My first book by Trisha and i love it.

This story was heartbreakingat times, the way Emerson is treated by her husband is disgusting. she's stuck with him and holds no hope for happiness in the future with him but a trip changes things, she finds safety, compassion and love in an unlikely place and with people she didnt think she would connect with.

I love Emerson and Van their interaction is funny at times and just so endearing. The secondary characters are brilliant, the story unfolds beautifull

Loved the characters!

Without giving away too much, I like how Trisha weaves the story of a woman that survives emotional abuse because she feels it’s her fault!

However, this story moves forward with showing just how much strength someone can have when they have people that care, love and support the person!

A definitely much read!

I really liked this book! I will say, I started off mad in the beginning but that’s only because Emmy’s husband is a you know what. And She didn’t deserve to be treated like that at all. But later in the story, I was so glad that she met Van. They were complete opposites but opposites attract! I cannot wait to read more from this author and see what she has in store for us next.

I couldn't put this book done. It was so good...
The chemistry between Emerson and Van is intense..
There are a few funny moments.
This book is packed full of drama.

Poor Emerson has been taken on an emotional rollercoaster ride.

I. Really hoping there will be a book 2 I'd like to know more about the guys and girls of Bradley restorations...

Emerson is treated badly by everyone who should love her. Then she meets Donovan, and her life changes. I really liked this book. At first I felt so bad for Emerson but, will she find true love? Read this book.
Stacy okun
Wow! Beautifully written.

The book was amazing, not because of the arrogance of the rich and famous. it Just brings to life how we as women can forsake our feelings over quilt. Am happy Van did not give up on her because she was married.

Grammatical errors weren’t horrible but they were there. Unrealistic social encounters. And honestly I don’t get the whole I can’t think straight with his body so close<\i> thing... it’s just lazy writing

I'm an a romantic suspense author...wait, what? I hated to read. I wouldn't read unless forced by a teacher. I watched a popular vampire movie and wanted to see what happened next, so I bought a Nook. My obsession began. I read a book a day. I've read hundreds of books!

I felt I had a story inside me to add to the list of self-published authors, so I put myself to the test, and Safer With You was b
