Beautiful Broken Rules by Kimberly Lauren

Beautiful Broken Rules


What happens when you create rules to keep others out?

One thing Emerson Moore has come to terms with is that she is the school slut. She knows her way around a frat house and how to get what she wants. She doesn’t make any excuses for her actions and she doesn’t pretend to be anything different. She is who she is and with that she knows how to have a good time. She’s made rules to keep relationships at bay and avoid the demons of her past.

When her best friend, Cole has his two friends from back home move in with him she begins to think she has met her match with Jaxon Riley. Jax is the perfect mixture of tattooed muscle and a sweet-talking mouth. With “hand” written notes, a voice that exudes sex and knowing just how to get under her skin, Jaxon learns how to break all the rules. But will he just end up breaking her heart anyway?


"I have three rules: never sleep with someone that a friend has feelings for, never sleep with someone who is in a known relationship (when this isn't disclosed to me, it is not my fault), never sleep with someone more than three times."
After tragedy struck her family, Emerson Moore has decided to live her life by these three rules in order to protect what remains of her life. She has never veered from these rules and has resulted in her being known as the campus whore. She doesn't really care what people say about her though. She is perfectly content with the way that she is leading her life. Until she comes into contact with Jaxon Riley.
Unbeknownst to Emerson, she emerges from a fraternity house early one morning minus her clothes. She is half naked when she runs into her best friend Cole and meets Jaxon for the first time. Jaxon, who is a childhood friend of Cole's, has transferred into the university in his Junior year to play football with Cole. She is instantly attracted to Jaxon, but she does not want to jump into a sexual relationship and risk her friendship with Cole and Cole's relationship with Jaxon.
Can they stop their feelings from escalating? Can sexual tension that high be ignored? No, it can never be ignored. One night they just can't fight their sexual feelings towards one another and spend the night together. She knows that she needs to stay true to her rule of "never sleep with someone more than three times." After three encounters, she knows that she must break it off with Jaxon. How will she feel seeing him date other women? Will she realize that Jaxon is in love with her and she is in the same predicament? 
Emerson proceeds to lead her life according to her rules and can't see the path of self destruction that she is on. Will it be too late when she is finally able to own up to her true feelings towards Jaxon?

I absolutely LOVED this book! Once I started it, I just didn't put it down until the last page! I was thrown back to my own college years and the fun that was to be had and the feelings of falling in love for the very first time. I highly, highly recommend this book!! -Kelly

Author Bio

I'm a wanderer, an adventurer, a traveler.

I want to see it all. I haven't been everywhere but it's on my list.

"She travels the world & home is always in her heart."

Lately if I'm not traveling or chasing a toddler, I'm writing. Which is weird because I hated writing in college. Oh wait, that's because that was boring. Who really wants to sit there and cite all your sources into APA format? Not this girl. Writing for yourself is enjoyable and cathartic. Please try it. Then tell me about because I love indie authors.

When I was 19, I packed up and followed my high school sweetheart from Texas to California. We had a blast living it up in San Diego. Four years later we made a crazy decision and packed up again and moved to Germany. What? Yep, you read that right. Guess what? Best decision ever! We OWNED Europe. For three years we saw as much as we possibly could. It was the most amazing time of my life. Please go out there and see the world, you won't regret it. After Europe we moved back to California, and for now we're just debating our next adventure.

I earned a degree in Child Development. And now I write novels. Makes perfect sense! I write because I walk around all day with these stories in my head. It's nice to be able to get them out of my head in an organized fashion. I hope that someone out there enjoys them, because I have enjoyed so many others'.
