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.

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***
Perfectly Broken is perfectly splendid! I enjoyed all of this book, from the characters to the plot to the vivid descriptions. Prescott Lane blended together the wonderful story of a woman, Peyton, who’s been through so much in her life and a man, Reed, who thinks that he carries his father’s sins. I fell in love with both of them. Peyton grew so much throughout the book; she goes from hiding in baggy clothes to someone with more confidence than she thought she could have. Reed helps her with overcoming a lot of her problems, along with the fantastic and hilarious Dr. Lorraine. You’ll go on a roller coaster with Peyton but you’ll enjoy the ride.

Reed in his own way suffers from a past, just not his past. Because of his father, Reed carries the stigma “like father, like son”. What he finds in Peyton is someone who gives him a genuine chance, and while their relationship does get rocky at times, it grows into something incredible. Reed grows just as much as Peyton does. It was heartwarming to see a strong male character that can be sensitive without needing to be alpha (don’t get me wrong, I love my alphas, but this was a nice change for me).

The story flows very nicely and questions are answered. It’s wrapped up perfectly at the end. I do hope that Ms. Lane has follow up books with these characters because they are wonderful. Buy the book today and fall perfectly in love with Perfectly Broken.
