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.

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.

3.5 stars

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.
Too much going on in this first book in the Broken Love Series. It was hard to put this one down.
Piper had too much in her plate at her young age. Traumatized for her past events, living in a foster home, pursued by a guy. But a spark of hope came into view when she met Rex. He is the hot guy, son of a country music star, living on his own due to the absence of his parents. They are two broken souls that will involve you in your anguish and sweet story.

My thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This YA novel started off quite strongly - and melodramatically! In the Prologue, young Piper is shot, sacrificing her life for that of the love of her life, Rex Montgomery.

Now flash back to six weeks before this alarming incident: Piper's life was "a hot mess": she was known as the school slut because her mother was a prostitute and drug addict. When she was 8 years old, Piper was put i

This book had some interesting relationships that I liked reading about- for me, especially Piper and her relationships with Cooper, Logan and Bane. Although, one of the relationships took a cliche and, I believe, unnecessary turn. On the other hand, I really didn't have much interest in the relationship between Piper and Rex. I do think they were cute, but I didn't feel that *something special* from them, and so I didn't find myself actively rooting for them. *However*, I definitely was rooting ...more

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.

Reviews from the Heart
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 Rex.

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 real ...more

Thank you for the DRC :).

This book is about two broken people finding love and peace. The whole book was addictive and I couldn't stop reading. I just finished it in one go.
The book handles some heavy topics in a good way. It's mature and doesn't look away. I really loved it until the ending. It felt so rushed and forced. It felt childest and really threw me off the story. It went from a solid 4,5 stars back to 3.
Still highly enjoyable, but I wouldn't reread it.

This book is amazing

Pipers story kept me hooked from the first paragraph! The hurt and trauma she works through, and the adventure that brings her to a better place is such an amazing tale to dive into. I highly recommend this book, and will be reading more from this author.

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.

I received a copy of this book on NetGalley for my honest opinion and thoughts about this book. My only problem with this book is, there wasn't enough pages I just wanted it to keep going and was left with wanting more at the end. In this book it starts with a young girl called Piper and is in her final year of High School. Piper isn't just your typical teenager she has had a troubled past and is now playing havoc with her present. Having nightmares and not sleeping is just the start of it. When ...more

The prologue instantly sucked me in and I couldn’t get enough of this book! I found myself completely obsessed with these characters and rooting for them to find themselves and each other. This is definitely a must-read especially for anyone looking for a book with all the feels and a bit of suspense along the way!

My heart was with Piper and Rex throughout this book. They were both broken in different ways and this book was the perfect story of their path to love. Piper has been through it ALL

Every now and then I try to read a debut of a new author. The blurb of this book caught my attention and I was glad to meet the writing of Bailey B. Beautifully Broken is a gripping book about two young people, both with issues, who find peace and purpose in one another.
Piper has grown up at the wrong side of the tracks. Growing up in several foster homes and being part time raised by her addictive biological mother, hasn't shown Piper exactly how life could be. Therefore, she has already tried
Beautifully Broken is a story that will tug at your heart and have you wanting to hug Piper and Rex. This is a young adult story that even older adults will enjoy (I did). Piper has a life no one wants or should ever experience. Thankfully she has a foster family (Mama T and the Harris twins, Logan and Cooper) who aids her in all aspects to help pull her through some dark times. It doesn't help that we get a twist on a twin, shame on you! (all I will say to avoid a spoiler). Met Rex, all people ...more

Piper and Rex are two broken souls that find true unconditional love within each other. But Rex for me OMGGG, he stole my heart!! What a sweetheart; if I could just hug him and tell him what a good guy he is and that although his parents are blahhhhh, he is perfect and that piper is soo lucky to have him and that everything will be okay! Phew....I just love him. With that being said, I was worry about starting this book because I read to get away from real life issues. But Am happy to say I enjo ...more

Bailey B. is a new author to me and I am so happy she found me!

This book was so heartbreakingly beautiful. She had me hook from the beginning. Piper, oh man this poor girl. Having the life she had and all she had to grow up with, just broke my heart. But how she handled everything and everyone made me proud of her. She could have had the pity me card or the I hate the world and everyone in it. Yes she had that attitudes little but I have very surprised with her attitude on life.

I was mostly enjoying the story, but the crude language and sexual content was just too much, and I ended up stopping about half through. Besides that content, I found myself confused by the timeline and other inconsistencies, and I often felt gypped by the chapter endings that cut off scenes without resolving what was going on. The mature content rating is for mentions of prostitution and sex, underage substance abuse, sexual

Two beautiful broken souls

Piper cant be touched and she never told anyone other than her friend Bane why. Not even her foster brothers. Cooper and Logan are twins but shes closest with Cooper whereas Logan is the quieter one. But one day Rex the new guys at school saved her from on the guys trying to pay her for "extracurricular activities" and he protects her. From there their relationship builds because she finds she can bare his touch! Rex may be the hot hockey player but hes broken inside. H

#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.

Oh my goodness! This is a first book from this author and I loved it more than I thought! If you are looking for a YA with emotional twists that will leave your heart breaking but have a swoon worthy love story to boot? This book is for you! I fell in love with Piper and felt her pain just like I loved Rex and felt his as well! I would love to see a book on the twins and Bane's story as well! There is a second story and cannot wait to see who it is about! ...more
