Broken Beautiful Hearts by Kami Garcia (Review)

    Peyton has plans, she has dreams. She wants to be the best soccer player ever, and she is working for that dream. That is, at least, until her boyfriend throws her down the stairs in an angry fit. This shatters her heart, her dreams, and her knee. Fleeing to her uncles home to find sanctuary as she heals. At the same time as healing her knee, she begins to work on healing her shattered heart as well. Along the way she meets Reed, a handsome kick-boxer with a heart of gold, and she struggles o know if she should trust and love again.
      Very well written, and with a strong narrative voice. Broken Beautiful Hearts is a cute and mildly intense story of a High Schoolers Peyton and Reed. It covers the topic of doping, domestic violence and of what real and true love should look like. I did find there was one scene that felt incredibly unnecessary to the plot, which was the sex scene. I felt it was uncomfortable graphic for a book aimed at this age group and it didn't really further the plot or grow the characters in any way. It could have been cut and I actually probably would have love the story more then I did. Now that aside, I found I really liked how the opening chapters of the novel gave the story such a feeling of intensity and immense. It helped the rest of the story feel like it was zooming by faster then it would have if the opening was less dramatic or intense. All in all, I did enjoy reading Broken Beautiful Hearts and give it the rating of FOUR AND A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE!!!
