Broken Beauty by Ketley Allison

Emoji Review by Rebecca Dixon

I finished โ€˜Broken Beautyโ€™ by Ketley Allison and Iโ€™m ADDICTED yโ€™all! (FYI, Iโ€™m not affiliated with the author and there are NO spoilers! This is just me going GAGA over a book I love ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป)

Alright โ˜‘๏ธ!  Couple things to know FIRST ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป!  This is a DARK Contemporary Romance RH that yep, has some bl00d ๐Ÿฉธ play.  Itโ€™s just a tiny bit though!  So if thatโ€™s not your cuppaโ€ฆ no worries, just scroll on by ๐Ÿ˜˜! (Iโ€™m actually not a fan myself, but I still loved the book!)

I gotta be real with you ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป.  I think Dark Contemp Romances sort of just grow on you the more you read them!  If you have never read one before, they can be quite shocking ๐Ÿ˜ฑ!  Especially a RH!  But once you read a few, the addiction can be legit โ˜๏ธ.  You then find yourself reading book after book, just trying to find something to snag you like the last great Dark Contemp Romanceโ€ฆ likeโ€ฆ Helllllo ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป Haunting ๐Ÿ‘ป Adeline fansโ€ฆ  or Den of Vipers ๐Ÿ!  You GET what I mean, amirite? ๐Ÿ˜†

So!  Enter this awesome RH ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป!  Honestly โœŒ๐Ÿป guys, I got hooked AS SOON as one of the guys said, โ€œI have a confession to make, I really want to fu@k you.โ€  LMAO ๐Ÿ˜….  Um, thatโ€™s straight to the point ๐ŸŽฏ, isnโ€™t it?! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I have to let yโ€™all know thoughโ€ฆ this is a TABOO filled RH ๐Ÿ˜ฎ!  Like, real lifeโ€ฆ ehhh not so cool ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป.  Fiction?  Can I get a HELL YES ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป !  Itโ€™s full of spice ๐ŸŒถ๏ธ and honestly, every time she met ๐Ÿค another guy I was likeโ€ฆ Iโ€™m TOTALLY shipping you guys!  Thatโ€™s actually not very typical for me for a RH, if Iโ€™m honest ๐Ÿ˜ฌ!  And speaking of RHโ€™s, anyone who knows me, knows that I didnโ€™t used to be an RH fan!  Cupidity ๐Ÿ’˜ by Raven Kennedy converted me and since then, Iโ€™ve catapulted into alllll sorts of RHs ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

So what is this story about ๐Ÿค”?  This is actually NOT a Paranormal Romance, to be honest ๐Ÿ˜‡- it feels like one though!  There is a really COOL ๐Ÿ˜Ž witches ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ plotline!  Think Sanderson ๐ŸŽƒ sisters, folks!!  Which to be fair, is sort of perfect for this time of year ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒป!  The plotline kicks off ๐Ÿฆต with a FMC who is attending a University (not my go-to trope, mind you!) and we find out pretty quickly that guys dig her ๐Ÿ”ฅ, even with her witchy ๐Ÿˆโ€โฌ› ways.  Enter her brotherโ€ฆ who is somehow caught up in a Mafia ๐Ÿ”ซ type world and is apesh!t protective ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป over her!  Heโ€™s a part of a group of Vultures โ€ฆ whoโ€ฆ you guessed it! โ€ฆ Are not supposed to be eyeing ๐Ÿ‘€ his little sisโ€™, but when sheโ€™s so dang g0thicly alluring ๐Ÿ˜, who can help themself? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

This book has ALL kinds of TABOO tropes, including the whole professor ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ & student ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽ“ thing going on ๐Ÿ˜ฎ!  Thereโ€™s a cool mystery ๐Ÿ”Ž as well for the overarching plotline ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป!  Gotta be honest โœŒ๐Ÿป, there are some grammatical errors, but I donโ€™t really care!  The author did an AMAZING ๐Ÿคฉ job with this story and I LOVE โค๏ธ each & every guy!!

This is book 1 of a Duet and there is a prior book, FYI.  The prior book is a F/M story with the brother ๐Ÿ‘ฆ and his gal, but tbh, I was in the mood ๐Ÿ˜ for a RH, and Iโ€™m so happy I read this first ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป!  It takes the sting ๐Ÿ away that the conclusion for the Duet isnโ€™t available yet, when I can just download the first book that started it all! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

So if you like a DARK RH Contemp Romance that is TABOO, has a little bit of bl00d ๐Ÿฉธ play (think Den of Vipers,) has guys that are all SUPER unique and equally delectable ๐Ÿฅต, a COOL ๐Ÿ˜Ž mystery witch ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ plotline that makes the book feel like a PNR (when itโ€™s not,) and really GREAT steam ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ”ฅ๐ŸŒถ๏ธโ€ฆ give this a shot!  Itโ€™s FREE on KU and you never know, it may just be the beautiful broken story for you!
