Piper

Most people don’t think about the day they’ll die. They coast through life, blissfully unaware of how their time is ticking away. I wasn’t like most people. I welcomed death, wanted her to take me away from the prison I called life, but she refused. I tried twice only to survive. And then, when I thought I had nothing left it came.

A reason to live.

Rex was a small,

Terrific story of two damaged people!



I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It is a young adult romance with quite a bit of angst. It wasn’t a steamy novel by any means. The heroine, Piper Lovelace, is a senior in high school who had a bad start in life. Her biological mother is a lifelong prostitute and an addict. Piper was sent to live in a foster home when she was about eight years old. The foster family consisted of Mama “T” and twin boys that were her age, Logan and Cooper Harris.

Two broken souls, each one having had either emotional or traumatic experience, met in their senior year of high school and shared a beautiful connection.
Rex and Piper were each other’s saviour while their lives were dealt a bad hand.
Although it was very well written and developed, I found their HEA ending very premature.
I would like to read the stories of the secondary characters.

Rex is the son of a music celebrity and has lived a privileged life. Some people may assume that money equates to happiness but it couldn’t be further from the truth. What every child needs is a parent that loves them and is there for them. Rex has never really felt that from either of his parents. If it wasn’t for his nanny he would have had very little happiness and affection growing up.

Rex is now in his final year of high school and the new guy that everyone is trying to align with.

Piper is many things but the school slut everyone labeled her as is not one of them. For years she's been teased and tormented for being her mother's daughter. She only has a few more months and then she can leave this part of her life behind... or can she?


Rex has lived his life as the son of a famous country star. Never wanting for anything except the love and acceptance of his parents, only to be dumped off with the nanny. He's never known love until he meets Piper.


Now Rex and

Fantastic high school bully type book.
Reviews from the Heart (Kimberly Anne)
Beautifully Broken by Bailey B was both an emotional and heartbreaking read as it was sweet and charming. Piper has not had an easy life and that is an understatement. She has suffered so much and does not want to live anymore. Rex is a child of a celebrity, but even so, life has not been easy for him. He may look like he has everything he could possibly want but looks can be deceiving. Though there are rampant rumors about her, she intrigues Rex. He wants to get to know her. Can she open up her ...more

All the feels!
Aww this was a beautiful sweet ya romance that gave me all the feels. Piper has a rough childhood and recent trauma that makes her wary of others and especially wary of love. But when she meets Rex sparks fly and she finally starts to open up...but not all happy endings come easy.
My heart was torn out as I read this book...and I was on the edge of my seat until the end. There’s definitely a touch of romantic suspense to this story that keeps you turning the pages. And I loved

Must Read

I really enjoyed the story of Piper and Rex. Broken girl/boy fixing each other. I would have liked a little back story on Rex and how it was Piper caught his attention. What he thought of her prior to Rex saving her. You mentioned he watched her and didnt believe the rumors but we didnt get to hear that story from Rex. This story captured my attention from the beginning.

This is a sweet love story between a traumatized girl and a boy abandoned by his family. Both broken in different ways but looking to find someone to heal them. I really appreciated the way Bailey handled Pipers trauma, not making it seem like someone could just "get over" if they find the right person. She doesn't just brush it under the rug like its something inconsequential. While this book has triggers for people who have been sexually assaulted it really deals with this topic in a more ...more

This is one of those books that breaks you down, brings you back up and keeps you there. There was so much manipulation happening that made it so enticing. This couple was really destined to be together even after all that had happened between them. I would not wish that journey on anyone but if it ended up exactly the way it was supposed to, with being a couple at the end, the journey was well worth it.

What a fantastic read...Highly recommended!!

Great storyline, strong female character and a patient yet persistent guy! I love when the downtrodden abused characters get their HEA!

This is the story of two broken HS Seniors who find each other. Piper and Rex are both damaged in different ways, but are able to heal together. Their relationship is sweet and I’m glad they both got a happy ever after!

Thank you to Netgalley for a free copy in exchange for an honest review!

The name says it all. It's beautiful and filled with a broken heartfelt storyline that sent shock waves after shock wave of emotions through my bruised and battered heart throughout this amazing read that constantly had me on edge and at times so darn hard to put it down. A read not to be missed and am glad to have to have the chance to read it by taking a chance on an author I never heard of. Great work and looking forward to reading more.

I was given an ebook copy of Beautifully Broken in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I am not going to give too much information about this book. The reason being that you should read it for yourself.

Here's what I will tell you: Piper is from the wrong side of the tracks. Junkie mom, no money, and the school outcast. She suffers from an anxiety disorder that stems from PTSD. Rex: famous father, parents are always gone, raised by his nanny, rich, popular, but also a loner. This is a

First, I want to say that Bailey B is a new author. Because of that, I’m more than happy to be able to read and review. Being a new author is tough. You have to have thick skin to deal with the reviews of those that may hate your book. I have a lot of respect for authors that are new and put themselves out there.

Beautifully Broken is about a young girl who has dealt with a dead beat druggie as a mom. Piper is in all sense of the word, broken. She has a great foster family, who always has her

#NA Romance Done Right

Rex & Piper feel real to me. Their story isn’t forced, there’s no storm of unnecessary bullshit keeping them apart for dumb reasons. Thank the lord! Instead, Beautifully Broken has a very real, very dangerous storm (that’s all I’ll say). Bailey perfectly pens the tension and uncertainty of falling in love. Rex & Piper share this wholesome, fragile, insecure love that we don’t often experience in YA/NA. And I love to see it.

This was an okay read for me, i felt however that there was a lot of buildup and then the climax of the situation left a lot to be desired. Piper and Dex should never have been together, tthey didn't run in each others circle, but one save and he soon became the most important person in her life.

There is a lot for Piper to get through with her past and yes it worked with Rex. The other side characters were interesting and i would like to see more of Bane and get his story.

This was a very emotional read. I can’t imagine going through what Piper went through. I hope the other characters get their own stores.

Two people from different walks of life equally broken coming together to heal each other....such a beautiful story! I loved Piper and Rex together! It was hard to read what Piper had been through in her short life. I'm glad she had Mamma T, Cooper, Logan and Bane and now has Rex. I hope Cooper, Logan and Bane get stories, too, and would love to see and epilogue for Rex and Piper!!

Bailey B is an up and coming New Adult author. She lives in Lehigh Acres Florida with her husband, twin girls, and two fur babies. She enjoys (but doesn't get to take part in because of her crazy daughters) the simple things like Disney+ binge watching, Netflix romcoms, reading and sleeping. She reads two to three books a week and thinks if narwhal's are real animals then unicorns might be too.
