Blog Tour: Beautiful Broken Rules by Kimberly Lauren, Review & Giveaway

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?
Emerson Moore has come to terms with being the school slut.  Everyone at her college knows her reputation and most know her rules.  Never sleep with a man who's in a relationship, never sleep with a man that a friend has a crush on, and never EVER sleep with the same man more than three times.  Emerson is happy with her life, living with her stepsister Quinn and her best friend Cole who will be moving into the apartment next door to them with his two best friends from Texas.

Emerson is no stranger to the frat houses and their parties, so when she's forced one morning to do the walk of shame out of Micah's room with nothing on but her panties and a bra that's too small and belongs to Quinn, she doesn't expect to run into Cole outside with one of his new roommates Jaxon.  Jaxon catches Em's eye right from the start.  He's well built, sexy as hell, and straddling a motorcycle.  Em knows she has to have him.  She gets to know Jaxon when she discovers they are taking journalism together and they sit together and get to know one another during a class assignment.  Jaxon and Em grow closer overtime, with his notes he loves to write on her hand and his sexy ways, but Em wants more.  She finally gets her wish when she locks herself out of her apartment and has to go next door to wait out her sister.  Right from the start their relationship or should I say lack there of, is explosive.  Jaxon knows her rules and makes a rule of his own the only bed she will be sleeping in is his bed.  Jaxon puts her three time rule to the test and turns her entire world upside-down.  But life for Em hasn't been easy with the death of her parents five years ago, she hasn't been able to form relationships and has never had a boyfriend.  

Jaxon wants more, Em doesn't and it will change everything when ex's return to the picture and rock their entire foundation.  Can Jaxon make Em see that a relationship together would be a wonderful once in a lifetime experience?  Can Em let go of her past and learn to love again?

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!  It was fun, enjoyable, and emotional.  Get your tissue out believe me, you're going to need it.  Well written and did I mention Jaxon is a twin???  Two hot, incredible guys.  Oh man I want more.  I really, really hope that Kimberly writes a book about Jace cause frankly the guy needs some loving after all he had to go through with his best friends and his brother.  I highly recommend this book, 5 stars!

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. We lived an hour outside of France, a couple from Switzerland and Italy. 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'.
