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.

Rating & Review:
Yep 4.5 Stars - It was good! I enjoyed both the story and the characters. The author's writing is good. I'll be honest and tell you I had some trouble with parts of the story flowing for me, but overall this was a good story with good writing.
So you might be thinking you already know this story based on the description... you'd be wrong. I have read a lot of books and while yes this has a story arc we have seen before the way this is told takes it to a new level. This author takes the reader on a journey of discovery and emotions through her main character Peyton. I really loved Reed, and while I usually fall in love with the male leads, he is emotional and dark and seems real. I really really enjoyed these characters.
I feel that most of you will enjoy it as well if you give it a chance and give it a read!
