Romance Review | Perfectly Broken by Prescott Lane

Overview: Even after years of trauma therapy, Peyton still believes she’s broken. She has little desire to date or show off her natural beauty, content simply to hang out with her best friends and run her pie shop in New Orleans. But her world turns upside-down when a handsome architect and self-confessed player shows up in her shop and thinks she’s perfect, much more than the usual hook-up. While Peyton does her best to resist his charms, believing she could never be enough for him, she can’t deny the obvious heat between them. With Reed determined to have her, Peyton must decide whether to continue to hide behind her apron and baggy clothes or take a chance and share her scars with Reed, a man with a playboy reputation and scars of his own -- a dark past he can’t possibly share with Peyton, not after learning the horrors she’s endured. But if they can find a way to trust each other, and themselves, they just might be able to heal, to save each other, to live perfectly broken together.

My Review: 4.5 pink flower stars for Perfectly Broken. Peyton suffered a traumatic experience just before graduating college and it has forever changed her, taken something form her, and that is the person Reed meets. Reed has his own family issues and issues with commitment. Peyton knows Reed is a playboy but when he shows he won't give up and isn't just a jerk, she gives in. 

Reed is....Christ, Reed is so damn awesome! I think I squealed about fifteen times while reading this story because of the things he did or said. At one point he buys out an entire florist shop's pink flower inventory and sends them to Peyton's house. How cute is that? Reed has his own issues but they only serve to make him appear touchable and real. I loved his passion, compassion, tenderness, confidence, and his desire to never give up.

The story is the story of two people who save each other which is the sweetest. I love when it isn't just a guy that saves the girl because that's so old and kind of annoying in that women can save men just as much as men can save women. Their love sneaks up on them and is a sweet thing. They work through all their issues and achieve the ultimate happy ending.
