Beautiful Broken Rules

What happens when you create rules to keep others out?

One thing Emerson Moore has come to terms with is that she is the school slut. She knows her way around a frat house and how to get what she wants. She doesn’t make any excuses for her actions and she doesn’t pretend to be anything different. She is who she is and with that she knows how to have a good time. She’s made rules to keep relationships at bay and avoid the demons of her past.

When her best friend, Cole has his two friends from back home move in with him she begins to think she has met her match with Jaxon Riley. Jax is the perfect mixture of tattooed muscle and a sweet-talking mouth. With “hand” written notes, a voice that exudes sex and knowing just how to get under her skin, Jaxon learns how to break all the rules. But will he just end up breaking her heart anyway?  - Goodreads


The blurb says it all. She is the school slut that slept with almost every man that walks her way. She's popular. Girls envied and loathed her at the same time. Guys wants to be with her and experienced what she's known for. She doesn't hide this fact. She doesn't sugarcoat everything. She is who she is and what she is and what she needs to do have a good time.  She hook-up with almost and I say almost not all because she has rules she always live by: 

  • Never sleep with someone a friend has feelings for
  • Never sleep with someone in a known relationship
  • Never sleep with someone more than three times
Readers met my new fave heroine, Emerson Moore. She's a no fuss sexy female popular for sleeping with almost all the guys in campus. For years, she built walls to protect herself and no man was able to tear it down before Jax Riley. Their first meeting was awkward when Em was doing her "walk of shame" with just her undies on after sleeping with a frat guy. It was want at first site for both of them. He became one of her best friends and vice-versa. But things got complicated when they go beyond their friend zone. Jax wanted her to be his but Em is not ready for it. And when Jax played her game, Em's world turned upside down.

I'm a sucker for College Romances and this one just hit the right spot. Beautiful Broken Rules is a beautiful written book with amazing characters. The story was simple, real, easy and uncomplicated. It was a breath of fresh air for me after reading some complicated and angst-intense romance book lately.  I can't even believe that this was a debut novel for Kimberly Lauren. She surely did an amazing job for a first timer.
