ARC BOOK REVIEW: Beautifully Broken Life by Catherine Cowles

Writing Style Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
Storyline Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
Hero: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
I adored Liam’s calm and stoic presence. He was down to earth and never came across as a privileged rockstar.
Heroine : 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
Tessa is private and keeps everything close to the vest. Her personality starts to show the more comfortable she becomes around Liam and the Cole Family.
Chemistry between h/H: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
There is an obvious chemistry between Liam and Tessa but because of the circumstances that Tessa is in it’s not an in your face chemistry which I felt was appropriate.
Smut Factor: 🌟 🌟
Same as with the chemistry, this was a slow burn but it’s worth it and is appropriate with the storyline.
Overall Thoughts: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
Catherine Cowles newest release Beautifully Broken Life, brings us a story of love and hope and home, all bound into the pages of a book. After falling in love with the first book in the Sutter Lake series, book two was everything I had hoped. It’s packed full of emotions as well as suspense but also a scorching slow burn that is well worth the wait. She takes care and grace with writing Liam and Tessa, giving them the story they deserve. Catherine has a way of wrapping you in the warmth of her words that make you lose yourself in her world. Make sure Beautifully Broken Life is at the top of your TBR list.
