"Best Kind of Broken" by Chelsea Fine


SERIES: Finding Fate #1
GENRE: NA Contemporary Romance
SOURCE: Publisher

Pixie and Levi haven't spoken in nearly a year when they find themselves working—and living—at the same hotel in the middle of nowhere. Once upon a time, they were childhood friends. But that was before everything went to hell. And now things are... painful. All they want to do is avoid each other, and their past, for as long as possible. But now that they're forced to share a bathroom, and therefore a shower, keeping their distance from one another becomes less difficult than keeping their hands off each other. Because despite everything that happened before, this isn't the kind of chemistry that's easy to resist. Welcome to the hallway of awkward tension and sexual frustration, folks.


I've always been curious about this series, partly because it's praised well from more than a blogger I follow, and partly because new adult books get me on an emotional level I particularly love. So I should have really known better and try this a long time ago... Anyway, you know what they say, better late than never!

Chelsea Fine has a beautiful writing style that draws readers in and makes them turn every page with the same intensity that hit them at the very beginning. The palpable electricity between the main characters and the sexual tension building work just great. You find yourself wanting the desire to win over while also hoping they won't give into temptation too soon. Indeed, the tension is SO good that the reader joins Pixie and Levi's frustration, and love every moment of it. What happened to the two of them and why they (try to) keep a certain distance is sad and touching, something that proves fate can be a real b*tch. And with both point of views at your disposal, you feel for the both of them and get their reactions to the tragedy stroked.

With a heart-warming story, broken characters, and an Inn that feels like home, this is an emotional, tempting, and entertaining book. Some might say the best kind of read.
