Broken Beauty

Broken Beauty (#1 Broken Beauty Novella)
by: Chloe Adams
Broken Beauty (Broken Beauty Novellas #1)
**Contains graphic content and the sensitive topic of rape and its aftermath. Not intended for teens under the age of 18.**

Sometimes bad things happen to beautiful people.

When socialite party girl Mia Abbott-Renou wakes up in a garden she has little recall of the previous night -- except that she is naked...hurt...terrified. Not only has she been raped, but she knows one of her assailants: the son of a wealthy politician who happens to be her own father’s political ally.

Mia wants and needs justice. Except this privileged boy has an alibi and her father forbids her from going to the police. It’s a critical election year, one that his party might lose if his image as a doting father is soured due to Mia being labeled a lush or worse, promiscuous.

Devastated at not having the support of her family, Mia finds herself in a tug-of-war with her conscience over what to do, especially since she can’t remember exactly what happened that night. Worse, the men who attacked her have hurt several other girls, and Mia may be the key to stopping them.

Mia tries to forget, until the unthinkable happens, and she’s left reeling once again, faced with a new challenge that will force her to take more control of her life.
4.5 this book tried to break my heart Stars!
My Review:
Oh my God. This book ripped my heart out and smashed it. Wow. This book is just, wow! I adore Mia. I just wanted to reach in and hold her. What she went through was horrific. And for her parents to not be there and be more worried about their status than their daughter. And for her to be so young. I had tears in my eyes for most of the book.
I think I need a drink after this book. And I definitely need more. I can't wait for the next one. I can't imagine what the author must have went through even writing the book. My heart reaches out. Great book!
