**Contains graphic content and the sensitive topic of rape and its aftermath. Not intended for teens under the age of 18.**

Sometimes bad things happen to beautiful people.

When socialite party girl Mia Abbott-Renou wakes up in a garden she has little recall of the previous night -- except that she is naked...hurt...terrified. Not only has she been raped, but she knows one of her assailants: the son of a wealthy politician who happens to be her own father’s political ally.

Mia wants and needs justice. Except this privileged boy has an alibi and her father forbids her from going to the police. It’s a critical election year, one that his party might lose if his image as a doting father is soured due to Mia being labeled a lush or worse, promiscuous.

Devastated at not having the support of her family, Mia finds herself in a tug-of-war with her conscience over what to do, especially since she can’t remember exactly what happened that night. Worse, the men who attacked her have hurt several other girls, and Mia may be the key to stopping them.

Mia tries to forget, until the unthinkable happens, and she’s left reeling once again, faced with a new challenge that will force her to take more control of her life.

Originally published in October 2012 as "No Way Back" by Chloe Adams

Broken Beauty is the heart breaking & gut wrenching story about rape & it's after math told through a Surviour's  eyes.


"I don't want to tell anyone. I want to forget. And I want those who hurt me to pay. But I'm terrified to remember." 

Lizzy aka Chloe did such an amazing job writing broken beauty it was raw & many times painful to read but even with so much horror it still remained heartfelt & hopeful.

"Dom is a guardian angel and not just for me. I never thought twice about police before I met Dom & Keisha. It's strange to think there are people out there that are the complete opposite of my family, people who want to help others not just themselves."

It's the kinda of story you don't simply read but feel with every fibre of your body....It takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotion which leaves you red eyed & breathless, with characters you know that you never be able to forget.

 "The Bruises will heal, but I'll never be able to forget what happened"

I know Broken Beauty isn't the type of story for everyone because of it's subject but I would still highly recommend it too anyone, like Lizzy said this is story that needs to be told & i think this is a story that defiently needs to be read.

*i received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
