    One thought on “Beautifully Damaged”

    1. Wow. Just wow. And not in the good way. I rarely write a scathing review of a book--I tend to figure, unto each his own, and if I didn't like a book that doesn't mean it doesn't have an appropriate audience out there somewhere. To be honest though, I felt like I was completely duped and hoodwinked by all of the wonderful reviews of this book. The only "wonderful" thing I can say about this book is that the title is decent, and the book ended--eventually. I feel like I owe it to unsuspecting read [...]

    2. Read my review at Sinfully Sexy.“I couldn’t imagine loving someone with that kind of intensity, and knowing that the one you’re with is the only one you’ll ever want.”I realized that I was rambling so I stopped talking as Trace just looked at me. His expression was completely unreadable. He wrapped his hands around my face as he looked deeply into my eyes before he whispered, “I can”I went into this book not really knowing what to expect seeing that the reviews are all over the pla [...]

    3. 1 'Not so Beautifully Damaged' Stars!"When I was younger, I couldn't imagine loving someone with that kind of intensity, and knowing that the one you're with is the only one you'll ever want."You're beautiful. You're beautiful.You're beautiful, it's true.I saw your face in a crowded place,And I don't know what to do,'Cause I'll never be with you.This book was such a huge disappointment for me! I hate being too critical in my reviews for I know how much work and effort authors invest into their b [...]

    4. 4 so beautiful and so damaged STARSI'll tell you what real love is. It is blind devotion, unquestioning self-humiliation, utter submission, trust and belief against yourself and against the whole world, giving up your whole heart and soul to the smiter.An emotional story of a scarred man and the woman that loved him. Is it enough not just forget, but forgive the past? The sins of the father will forever haunt the son? Are we doomed to loneliness and despair?This book about Trace and Ember, is so [...]

    5. DON'T LET THE GRAMMAR-NAZIS SWAY YOU - THIS IS A GREAT STORYThis story is so good that you can overlook any issue with technical crap. "I'm all kinds of fucked up, Ember, and there are going to be times when I can't give you everything you deserve, like when I storm out or shutdown. My demons - I've had them for so long that I've grown accustomed to them but when I'm with you, the demons are quiet and for the first time in my life there's peach. You're my balm, my lifeline, Ember, and everything [...]

    6. 'totally, completely, hopelessly'I feel like there aren't enough words to describe what is going on in my head right now, and I really f*cking wish there were, because I hope to show you what this story is going to do to you.There is this girl. Ember.A beautiful soul for all means and purposes. She's nothing like the dull wallflower her best friend insists on treating her as. She's a woman with a natural force and determination to stand her own ground behind the veil of shyness. Her blush is not [...]

    7. GAWD!!! Where do I even start with this book?I trieduly, honestly!!! I really really did. I read a chapter, I put it down, I went back to it, I put it back down, I wanted to throw my kindle against the wall.This is the 2nd book in what I'd like to think as my fairly extensive reading history that I just could not finish.I let myself get seduced by rave reviews and a sexy book blurb. Le SighI should really know better by now.I had to give up on this book about 35% in. I couldn't take it anymore. [...]

    8. **Contains mild spoilers**This was a Kindle cheapy that had a lot of great reviews and a hot guy on the cover. Two signs of a potentially great book. Usually. Not so much this time. I can only assume that the same people who loved this book also loved Fifty Shades of Suck. Not because the subject matters were the same (they weren't), but because of how simplistic and stupid everyone was. Every character was a cliché of a cliché. Even though this book irritated the crap out of me, I had to keep [...]

    9. ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 BEAUTIFUL FANFUCKINGTASTIC STARS Wow !! I certainly got so much more out of this book that I ever expected I expected a good angsty bad boy meets good girl and they fall in love story but this was so so soooo much more Trace 6'4 of bad boy with tatts and muscles sexy all the women want him and all the guys step back when he walks by. He's a part time cage fighter and the rest of his income, which is quite a lot, is a mystery He's beautiful and strong on the outside, but complet [...]

    11. So for 90% of this book I was bitching about how horrible it was. And dear god was it horrible. At first the only thing that kept me reading was Trace. See I have this weakness for fucked up crazy guys. I don't know what it is but Trace met the criteria. Well after Trace started "healing" all I wanted to do was buy him some tampons and midol. Holy crap he was the biggest pussy ever. He cried over everything said thank u for every single stupid thing and then would say I love u about a hundred ti [...]

    12. Four Stars“I couldn’t imagine loving someone with that kind of intensity, and knowing that the one you’re with is the only one you’ll ever want.”I realized that I was rambling so I stopped talking as Trace just looked at me. His expression was completely unreadable. He wrapped his hands around my face as he looked deeply into my eyes before he whispered, “I can…” This story was…surprising. I kept going back and forth on how I wanted to rate this because my emotions were all ove [...]

    13. I wavered back and forth between liking this book, being frustrated and constantly raising my eyebrows in disbelief. This was kind of like three books/stories in one.In the first part, shy Ember met hot Trace and pursued him, despite him trying to keep her at arm’s length because he didn't feel worthy. I found that part of the story enjoyable. In the second part, after Ember "caught" Trace, I got irritated when Trace decided to push Ember away. I doubt I would have been as persistent or forgiv [...]

    14. Beautifully Damaged is exquisite story. I can't put into words what I felt reading this.There was so much emotion in this book, and I don't think my review could do justice to it. This was my first time reading anything by L.A. Fiore and I applaud you. Beautifully Damages is a very fitting title for this book. You have Trace are (H). A broken man, a broken soul who had a heinous childhood. It was heart breaking story and my heart was breaking for him in this story. Ember are (h) was started out [...]

    15. I’ll tell you what real love is. It is blind devotion, unquestioning self-humiliation, utter submission, trust and belief against yourself and against the whole world, giving up your whole heart and soul to the smiter. This was not just a love story about damaged man and the women who loves him and wants to save him. This story had suspense, mystery and a lot of drama! Trace and Ember were tied together in more ways then they could have ever imagined. Ember is kind of quiet, kind of shy, but o [...]

    16. Halfway through this book I need defibrillation--I've already been damaged and cannot make it till the end.But let me tell you this: Typically, I really appreciate the effort and focus of people who do everything they can to follow their dreams (people such as the author of this book). This is not the case, however, when it comes to killing people's brain cells with what is supposed to be literature, which also happens to be written in a way that makes English language run and scream for its lif [...]

    17. DNF with 9 hours leftThe great thing about Kindle Unlimited is that sometimes you can listen to the audio books for free. It's not for all books, but there are some with that option.I read the mixed reviews on this one and since I had KU, I thought what the heck, give it a go.The thing is, this book is pretty old, I think it was published in 2013 (don't quote me on this). I think since then to now my reading taste has CHANGED A LOT. What I once found a big deal isn't so much anymore. What I once [...]

    18. L A Fiore has done something not many authors manage. She wrote a female character in a romance that I actually liked. Ember was smart, loving, independent and interesting.She also managed to write an extremely hot, but very damaged bad boy. I actually liked them both very much. Added to that a great cast of secondary characters, and I was already well on the way to liking this book.The storyline was really good. A romance that the hero could heal and grow from, while the heroine could have all [...]

    19. Warning: This book may not be suitable for those who don't like: Eggs. Bacon. Or Cake-pops.-It may cause hallucinations and or dreams about cake-pops. -You may go through withdrawals if you aren't stocked up on eggs, bacon or cake-pops.Just a little taste of Ember's mind and cake pops:"I was like a junkie and Trace was my drug. I had no will power when it came to him. He was like my life-size cake-pop" You have been warned.Holy Twists Batman!The second half of this book is full of twists and tur [...]

    20. I hope whenever I decide to write a story, and it turns into a self- published book, that I heed the words in my own reviews. Lot's of writers have stories to tell, but execution of those stories, however controlled it can be, and reader reception of them are left to luck, chemistry, and/or good editing! I am convinced. It still amazes me that terribly edited books can become popular. More, when those books are let loose on the reader population with sloppy grammatical errors and plot. This is n [...]

    21. "I'll tell you what real love is. It is blind devotion, unquestioning self-humiliation, utter submission, trust and belief against yourself and against the whole world, giving up your whole heart and soul."This started off as a bit of a slow burner.At the beginning I didn't feel like I had a great introduction or connection to the characters.The first 20% consisted of an awful best friend, a mysterious would be suitor and a female lead who needed a serious case of self discovery.That being said [...]

    22. This book was so, so good!! I have to admit there were some mixed reviews, but I try to start each book with an open mind. I was for sure not anywhere near disappointed.[image error]Source: theberry via Karen on PinterestThe reader meets Trace Montgomery in a bar defending a rather shy Ember Walsh's honor. Right then she is warned he is a womanizing badass and to not get attached. Something about him just pulls Ember to him. Then, the chance meetings just start happening more often. I guess I ha [...]

    23. I must say, the cover SUCKS. But what's inside.Trace Montgomery. Fighter. Man whore. Totally and completely gorgeous. Damaged. Irrevocably. Or so he thought.Enter Ember. Beautiful and unassuming. Sweet. Innocent. Vulnerable. Loving. Beloved.I love this book. Like LOVE this book. It made me cry, it pissed me off, it made me think. What if God makes one person for you, one perfect reflection of your soul and your other half is heartbreakingly damaged? What if he pushes you away, deliberately hurts [...]

    24. Because sometimes a song tells everything for usFind me here, And speak to me. I want to feel you, I need to hear you. You are the light, That's leading me, To the place, Where I find peace again. You are the strength, That keeps me walking. You are the hope, That keeps me trusting. You are the light,To my soul.You are my purpose, You're everything. How can I stand here with you, And not be moved by you? Would you tell me, How could it be, Any better than this? You calm the storms, And you give [...]

    25. 3 starsI don't know what about this book, I liked this book, but I did not love it. We have Ember Welsh, a 23 year old virginal girl that falls in love with a stranger named Trace Montgomery after he saves her from another man that assaulted her in a crowded bar. Then fate decides to step in, and everywhere she goes, she sees him with his hoards of women. But something inside her tells her that he is more than just what he chooses to project to the world. Because of Embers supercuteness, Trace s [...]

    26. This felt like two books in one. Part one : the love story between Ember and Trace.I liked Trace - he was certainly the epic bad-boy - hot, tattoos, underground fighter, tons of ladies. Ember was the quite good girl - complete with her virginity at the at of 23. The story had a lot of potential, but there were a lot of things holding it back. There were odd turns of phrase (for instance the hero talks about " bedding" the heroine - a term I've never heard of from a modern day bad boy - or any mo [...]

    27. I absolutely loved this book! This is a beautiful well written love story that you will not be able to put down!Ember is a sweet girl who is beautiful on the outside as well as in, Trace is a broken man who hurts himself and does things to Ember that are so wrong, yet he is doing them because he thinks that he is not good enough for her and that it's the right thing to do. The road for Ember and Trace isn’t easy by any means and there are a lot of bumps and obstacles.There were so many twists [...]

    28. I liked the story. I see where the author was going with it. The writing you have to get used to cause when you think you're gonna get something doesn't happen. It's not bad. Minor editing issues but other than that, I'd still recommend it. And why would ITrace. Fucking Trace! He's hot, sexy, broken, former manwhore who looks fanfuckntastic and says the sweetest things. *Le sigh*There are other characters that I would love to know more about.Favorite lines:"It isn't everyday a wish comes true an [...]

    29. Ok first let me just say that I have read A LOT of books in my time and out of every. single. one. I seriously cannot think of another leading lady that I absolutely love more than I do Ember Walsh. (There are a few that come close) She is the most awesomely written female lead ever. Strong, independent, emotional, sweet, loving, giving does not put up with SHIT!. And trust me, as much as I completely loved Trace at the end of this book, he gave her a lot of shit throughout that other heroines w [...]
