Blog Tour- Perfectly broken by Prescott Lane

Book & Author details:

Perfectly Broken by Prescott Lane
Publication date: March 2014
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

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

Peyton Mayfield has spent years in trauma therapy and considers herself broken. She is now living a content life running a pie shop called 'Adelaide's' in an upcoming part of New Orleans and is happy spending time with her best friend Quinn.

Reed Langston is a sexy and successful architect from a wealthy New Orleans family who has recently moved back home to where he grew up. He's a ladies man who plays the part well and he knows it.

After visiting Adelaide's with his best friend Bret (who is also Quinn's boyfriend), Reed is introduced to Peyton which stirs up feelings he's never experienced before. There is an instant spark not to mention the devil's food chocolate praline pie between them, but is Peyton ready to stop hiding behind her apron and baggy clothes or will dark secrets rip Peyton and Reed's world apart?

A gripping romantic story with a roller-coaster of emotions which keeps the pages turning. Prescott Lane has touched on some serious issues with considerable thought and sensitivity. The humour from Dr Lorraine, Peyton's Therapist to the one liners from Bret will have you laughing out loud.

A fantastic epilogue to tie up the book but leaving it open for more
