Broken Beauty (Broken Beauty Novellas Book 1)

**TRIGGER WARNING. Contains the sensitive topic of rape and its aftermath.**

Just a broken girl trapped in her broken world.

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.

Good story!
By Torie Inman (4.0 out of 5 stars) on June 5, 2017
Poor Mia has been raped. She doesn't remember everything that happened because she was drinking. Her father is a politician and refuses to let her go after one of the guys she knows who did it because he is the son of a political ally. Her Dad also refuses to let he her take a morning after pill because he views it as murder. How will she go on with no closure fro the crime and no family support? Will she find the strength within herself to do what needs to be done to get justice or will she cave to the pressure that her Dad has out on her?

A sad tale which unfortunately
By Cynthia (5.0 out of 5 stars) on March 4, 2017
Broken Beauty explores the ramifications a rape victim feels. Not only was Mia violated by her attacker, but then the ones closest to her all let her down.Mia becomes anxious, paranoid and plagued with nightmares after the attack, and no one in her family seems to care. Instead, they are all concerned about the negative press her actions may have brought to the high profile family.Even though Mia knows who her attacker is, the family continues to remind her what an embarrassment she would be if she went through with a trial. Then even sink low enough to suggest she was partially to blame for the rape, since she chose to partake in underage drinking that night.A sad tale which unfortunately, is the truth for many young girls in today's society. I am hopeful that Mia may eventually gain the courage to stand up against her attacker and maybe even be the inspiration many young women may look to follow.

Very Emotional
By Amazon Customer (4.0 out of 5 stars) on February 10, 2017
This book was a very emotional read and I'm sure every reader will agree with me. The subject of rape is not an easy one, especially when the victim is living I'm circumstances where she can't say one wrong word or else it'll ruin her family. This book was written well, and I can't wait to read the next one. It really opens up your eyes to show that not everyone gets a happy ending and sometimes the bad guys don't get punished.

This was not easy to read and may not be for everyone but ...
