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.

Piper was again

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.

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

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.

#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!

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.

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

This book was a tough one. There were some truly great parts to the story. It was heart felt, beautiful, difficult to read, emotional and heartbreaking. I felt Piper's despair and the chaos of her feelings. How she felt inferior and unloved, less than everyone around her. But at times it seemed to be one perpetual monologue about how unworthy she was and it became a little stale. I understand her character was becoming numb to all the negativity in her life, the turmoil and

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

Again I’m going step by step. I guess I don’t know how to ease into any topic. :)

Piper Lovelace is a hot mess. Life is bad enough, the rumors are vicious, and the bullies are far worse. When you can't beat them, the only thing you can do is join them.

Of course, I wouldn't do that, and I don't think it's advisable to slap a scarlet letter on one's chest and claim harlot-dom, but I'm not Piper.

Bailey B.'s first book deals with a lot of trigger topics, the least of which is rape--and that is saying something. Piper's dealing with a lot of psychological trauma, and what

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

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

This book was such an emotional rollercoaster. The main character Piper, I could relate to. Not being able to trust anyone. The emotions that you could feel between all of the characters felt so real. It was a slow burn romance that makes you want to get to the end of the book to figure out what happens. There are quite a few twists that you don't see coming. This book was so powerful and so beautifully written. There are trigger warnings so read this book at your own risk if you have a problem ...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!

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
