Mini Review: Beautifully Broken by Amanda Bennett

“Darkness swept through my vision as my short lived life passed before my eyes. His face was the last thing I saw before I succumbed to my destiny. It’s funny how life can change its direction in the blink of an eye. What had once brought me strength has now made me weak and it was no one’s fault but my own. I did this and unfortunately he would now be the one to suffer for it. I could feel my heart breaking into a million pieces all over again and the feeling made me want to die.”

At eighteen years old Bennett had finally realized what her feelings for Gray meant. Through all the loss and love that they had been through with each other nothing was going to tear them apart, except maybe time. She was willing to fight for her new found love of this boy she had always known. But forces beyond their control were willing to do whatever it took to do just that.

With Gray heading off to the police academy and her headed to college things were bound to change. Time apart, temptation, lies and loss would test the strength of the relationship they thought would outlast anything.

Five years later Bennett and Gray will be faced with a reality neither one of them ever thought possible. It’s up to Gray to save Bennett from a force so strong it will test his strength, love and undying devotion he swore to her all those years ago.
They both learn that life isn’t always fair and the things you desire most in life can come at a costly price.

My Thoughts:
Hmm... I kinda like this book a lot more than I thought I would lol The characters are easy to relate (although sometimes they are quite ridiculous). I didn't expect this book to be a complicated read so I was surprised as I get engrossed with the story. This book is about friends who turn lover. Everything didn't happen overnight for this couple. After some horrible decisions made, they both suffered from it. As a conclusion, this book is all about forgiveness. A little bit angsty I guess, but thats just fine with me (after suffering through hell because of Undeniable). This book is obviously not a light read but I kinda had fun reading it. If you like Find You In The Dark, you'd love this book :). There's book two, but don't worry, this book doesn't end with a cliffhanger. And the ending is not that bad. Buy this book, and read it. :)

My Rating:
4 cupcakes ;)
