Praise for Best Kind of Broken:
"By turns humorous and heartbreaking, Best Kind Of Broken has become one of my favorites!"
“Levi Andrews. Hot guy. Handyman. My long–lost…something.”
This book is a true coming of age NA phenomenon. From the very first chapter I was captured and enraptured in to the beauty of these beautifully broken people. Sarah “aka” Pixie is a young aspiring artist with stars in her eyes and an indefinite scar on her heart. Pixie has held the burden of her Mother’s inconsolable wrath for longer than any child should. I’m starting out strong and fierce with this one guys! This “mother” of sorts disgusted me to hell, and I just have to let my feelings fly about this woman now! Why you ask? Because this story is beautiful and sweet, and unbecoming. And I don’t want this MOM bitch to ruin my review! I love Pixie so hard, and this lady that I now call the “Womb Donor” can kiss my ass. Pixie runs my heart and I hate when people mess with my people!
Moving on… Levi decides to take a random job working for Pixie’s Aunt Ellen, and this is the thing. Levi is an athlete, and not your every day run of the mill athlete. He was the star Quarterback in High School, the prized possession of everything juvenile. He was the guy that screamed innocence and reckless abandoned. He was the guy that used to find his Transformers protecting Pixie’s Barbie dolls. He was the perfect hero, the best friend that never quit. He loved Pixie strong and hard, but there was only one thing that kept him from submitting to his desires. Guilt. I can’t spoil why or how this guilt is misplaced. But I can guarantee that it is.
When Pixie decides to work for her aunt Ellen, she comes face to face with the “Love of her something” Levi. They haven’t spoken in forever due to their pure stubbornness and disregard of self loathing towards one another. This, in turn makes for some humorous hate crimes based on showeriffic terms. Yep, I just made up a word! Levi finds it hilarious to sneak in the shower and steal every ounce of hot water. OH! did I forget to mention that Pixie and Levi share the "East Wing" of the Willow Inn? Yep! just those two, alone in the East Wing...I'm sure Ellen is the anti-christ at this point. Levi is clearly avoiding Pixie for fear of becoming what they once were, and Pixie is clearly avoiding Levi because she doesn’t want to assault his nipples. Either way, these two are done. DONE. Pixie wants a hot shower! Just one! Like for real, just ONE! Levi never complies, like ever. His game is his throne and he likes the fight, he needs the pain, and they both continue on with this silly kid game knowing it’s immature, but quite possibly healing both of them subconsciously.
Jenna! Probably the best bestie any girl could hope for!! And Daren—Dirty-trying-too hard Daren, and Mable, sweet as pie Mable, and Ellen. Ahhhh Ellen. ALL of these characters made me smile!! Yes, even Daren.
I can tell you something right now! Chelsea Fine is a magician! She can write a book with HOT sexy time’s scenes with never mentioning nasty words! Like AT ALL. She wrote some of the steamiest stuff without using ANY regular naughty words! And to be honest, it was way hotter (YES I said hotter, sue me) than the typical sexy time novel, no joke!
This story was just plain beautiful, and heart-wrenchingly charismatic. I went into this book thinking I was going to just “sorta like” it. That was so beyond true! This book grounded me, and made me see things from a different perspective. Not an entirely different perspective, but a nice change to the norm.
This story was so amazingly honest, and cutely gritty. And for those of you that need the skin, well holy crap you’re gonna get it in the form of one of the best shower-scenes ever! It’s not nasty or slimy. It’s just… what it is. Perfect. So totally perfect for my “Leaves & Pix”-- *sigh* my perfectly best kind of broken couple… I love them so so soooo, deep! And so will you.
"I mean, you can't just say you love someone and make it true, That's not how it works. Real love doesn't need to be declared or confessed. Real love just...is. You know?"
Chelsea lives in Phoenix, Arizona where she spends most of her time writing stories, painting murals, and avoiding housework at all costs. She’s ridiculously bad at doing dishes and claims to be allergic to laundry. Her obsessions include: superheroes, coffee, sleeping-in, and crazy socks. She lives with her husband and two children, who graciously tolerate her inability to resist teenage drama on TV and her complete lack of skill in the kitchen.
