Pixie Marshall wishes every day she could turn back time and fix the past. But she can't. And the damage is done. She's hoping that a summer of free room and board working with her aunt at the Willow Inn will help her forget. Except there's a problem: the resident handyman is none other than Levi Andrews. The handsome quarterback was once her friend-and maybe more--until everything changed in a life-shattering instant. She was hoping to avoid him, possibly forever. Now he's right down the hall and stirring up feelings Pixie thought she'd long buried . . .

Levi can't believe he's living with the one person who holds all his painful memories. More than anything he wants to make things right, but a simple "sorry" won't suffice--not when the tragedy that scarred them was his fault. Levi knows Pixie's better off without him, but every part of him screams to touch her, protect her, wrap her in his arms, and kiss away the pain. Yet even though she's so close, Pixie's heart seems more unreachable than ever. Seeing those stunning green eyes again has made one thing perfectly clear--he can't live without her.

Review: 4 Stars - Best Kind of Broken, is the latest release from author Chelsea Fine. In this title, Chelsea takes readers on an emotional journey between two characters that are… broken.

 Pixie and Levi haven’t talked in awhile so when they run into each other at the last place they expect to see each other it’s an all out war. A war over shared space and hot water is just the start. The issues for these two unfold throughout the book. They grew up together and when a shared event from their past tears them apart it creates a very strained and awkward reunion to say the least.

The tension between Pixie and Levi is hot, hotter and downright blazing! And it’s not just in sexual tension either. With emotions running between these two while trying to fight them off it was bound to create some amazing and heartbreaking moments.

The story is heartbreaking and the characters extremely likeable which allows readers to become quickly absorbed in the book and before you know it you’ve devoured the entire book in one sitting! Also I should mention that this one will have readers running through a full range of emotions right along with the characters. One minute I was frustrated at how stubborn they were and then the next I wanted to hug them both. It without a doubt has its fair share of ups and downs, which only added to how wonderful this title is.

That’s one thing that I’ve always loved about Chelsea’s writing, story and characters. She writes emotion well which in turn makes it easy to get emotionally attached to her characters. I’ve loved her books in the past and I was excited to see her take on the “New Adult” category, and I think she did an excellent job with her first title in the Finding Fate series.

In the end this one is another winner from Chelsea. She has quickly and quite easily become one of my favorite authors who I’m always begging for more from. She knows this and puts up with it well. I highly recommend this title, heck ANY of her titles to fans who love great characters you’ll love, a well written story you’ll find yourself lost in. “New Adult” and contemporary fans don’t pass this one up! I’m sure it’ll be a hit to everyone who reads. Enjoy!

Author Photo

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.
