Wow, I loved Beautifully Broken
What a rollercoaster of emotions I was taken on.
First impressions of Kat from her introduction was reserved as she celebrated her 18th birthday alone at a bar with the intentions of getting drunk and getting laid. She was sassy,bold and came across as slutty.
Those first impressions were so far from the truth, what lay beneath was a girl just needing to be loved.
Kat has been in the care system most of her life, a drug addict mother and no father on the scene but now she is old enough to leave the care system she moves back home with her mum and plans to start school after the break.
When Kat meets Gavin there is an undeniable connection but like everything in Kat's life nothing runs smoothly and I followed Kats unlucky in life and love journey completely hooked and fascinated by her backbone and bravery with the hope she would get her hea.
Our eyes are locked, brown eyes to blue, and I have a terrifying realisation. This man is everything I don't want, yet everything I need.
A beautiful story written by Laura Lee, a book I couldn't put down with the dramas, sadness, heartwarming moments and hotness that was apart of Kat's life.
Brilliant characters, a heartwarming emotional journey and my first but definitely not my last read by this author.
The truth is that I want to be in your orbit every second of every day.
I knew he would ruin me from the moment we met. Everything about the man screamed confidence. Sensuality. Intelligence. Worldliness. But it was how he saved me that ruined me most.
Through him, I learned to end my path of self-destruction. I no longer needed to numb the pain with mindless one-night-stands and drunken blackouts. He made me feel worthy. Treasured. Optimistic about my future.
Here I stand four years later, in a coffee shop a world away, still broken…but beautifully so. My scars no longer hold me back. Instead, they give me strength and enrich my appreciation for the good things in life. I have hopes and dreams…faith that anything is possible. I am no longer the lost little girl fighting for survival. I have direction. I have courage. I am not without possibility.
I’ll always have Gavin to thank for that—Mr. Cooper, I remind myself. That’s who he is to me now: just a former teacher. I know what you’re thinking, but don’t worry. I was eighteen when we first met. Legally, we did nothing wrong. Morally? Well, I guess that depends on how flexible your morals are
My name is Kat and this is my story.

“Do you want me to turn something on from Netflix?”
“Sure. What’d you have in mind?”
He gets a boyish smile on his face. “Okay…if anyone asks about this, I will deny it until I’m six feet under.”
“And what’s that?”
“I’m going through a Dawson’s Creek binge right now. Wanna watch it with me?”
I can’t help it; I laugh until I’m snorting. “Are you serious?”
Gavin grabs the remote and begins flipping through the menu. “Completely serious. I never joke about The Creek.”
“Wow…I have no words.”
He bumps his shoulder into mine. “C’mon, you’ll love it. Have you ever seen it before?”
“Of course I have!” I reply. “Do you know how many Dawson ugly cry memes there are in existence? I had to know the source.”
“Yeah, I’m definitely Team Pacey all the way. Dawson is way overrated.”
I smirk. “Oh my God, when did you grow a vagina? I could’ve sworn you were a dude.”
His expression changes from jovial to angry in an instant. “We both know damn well I’m one-hundred-percent male. Don’t make me prove it to you, Kat.”
And with that, my expression morphs into equal parts stunned and horny. “Uh…”
He clears his throat and pushes a button on the remote. “And on that note…let’s forget I said that and get lost in North Carolina teen angst.”
“Okay, but make sure it’s an episode that has Mitch in it. Dawson’s dad is where it’s at.”
“You like older men, huh? I’ll have to remember that.”
I burrow under the covers and yawn. “I walked right into that one, didn’t I?”
He smirks. “Pretty much.”
