Surviving Broken ~ Sometimes you have to go through hell to find your heaven
Most women have a wish list when it comes to what kind of man they want to date. JC Mathews used a strict set of guidelines as a safety net to keep herself out of trouble and out of love.
On hiatus from the bright lights and speculative gazes of her career in the fashion industry, JC lets her guard down…only to the wrong man. After escaping Italy and the hands of her abuser, she returns to Malibu to recover. The last thing she expects to find is a large, gorgeous intruder swimming naked in her pool.
Reed Rider left Texas and his broken heart behind in order to settle his aunt’s affairs after her death. Seeking refuge from the California heat for a midnight swim in his neighbor’s backyard, he never expects to find the nude silhouette of a long-haired beauty standing at the water’s edge.
As their passion ignites and the pages of JC’s rulebook fade to grey, she unlocks her guarded heart to begin a new chapter in her life. When hidden truths are exposed and secrets unravel, will they survive the threats from their broken pasts?
The story of the youngest Mathew’s in the family, J.C, is one of her living in utter hell until her family is able to see through the lies that she has been hiding behind. They are able to get to her in time but it is up to her to find her own way out from behind the walls that she has built. She went from being a total player with the guys, with a list of rules that she followed religiously, to a shell of her former being.
J.C. has no desire to meet anyone; she just wants to take a hiatus from life in her parents’ home in California. She had no idea that fate had other plans for her. In an unlikely meeting with a naked man in her parent’s private pool; she is scared and put her on alert but she hoped that she would never run into him again.
Reed wasn’t in a place in life that he was looking for a relationship. He was only in California to take care of his aunt’s estate after her passing; little did he know that his decision to use his aunt’s neighbor’s pool late at night to cool off would have him frightening a gorgeous beauty. Since he was naked Reed was unable to apologize or get his name. He never thought he would run into her again, and then it happened at the Mom’s bar, there she was and he knew he had to get to know her.
J.C. is still trying to overcome her demons in her past; to believe she is worth loving and that she can be enough for a man to love her again. Reed also has his own past he is trying to overcome.
This book is amazing. All of the Mathew’s stories have been great emotional reads, but JC’s is to another whole level. Beverly dealt with some very difficult topics in JC and Reeds pasts. Domestic abuse and the death of loved ones are never easy topics to read about or live through, but Beverly has out done herself with Surviving Broken.
A bonus in this book, just like the others, you still get bits and pieces of the entire Mathews family including the twins. This is a story that definitely will pull at your heartstrings and make you want to believe in and hope for the happily ever after.
