Broken Beautiful Hearts by Kami Garcia

Publication Date: February 6th, 2018

Goodreads Summary
In this gritty, contemporary romance, an injured star athlete escapes to a small southern town after an abusive relationship leaves her reeling.

Before, Peyton was a star soccer player with the perfect boyfriend, Reed. Now, she has a torn knee ligament, a scholarship on the line, and a shattered sense of self. No one believes Reed pushed her, causing her injury, and Peyton just wants to leave the trauma behind. Living with her uncle and twin cousins in their small, football-obsessed town seems like a great escape plan.

There, Peyton meets Owen—high school classmate and local MMA fighter. Though Owen is charming and gentle, Peyton is determined to repress her growing attraction. But when her old and new life collide, Peyton must reclaim the truth of her past in order to save her future.

With southern charm, underground martial arts, and red-hot chemistry, Kami Garcia’s second contemporary romance will steal your breath away.


This book sounds like an addiction. Like one of those books that just grabs hold of you and refuses to let go. There’s nothing groundbreaking about the premise of the book, we see it all the time, but that doesn’t mean it won’t leave a mark. I can’t wait to see how Peyton navigates her new life whilst reconciling with her past. 

What’s your most anticipated book?

  1. Her previous YA contemporary was a decent read for me and this one looks pretty good too. I really like that cover. And I’m with you. It totally sounds like one of those addicting books.

  2. Oh, Kami Garcia, isn’t that the one who wrote the Beautiful Creatures series?! I might be mistaken, ahah. That book sounds really cool, though, I always love it when the past is somewhere into the story, messing up with the present and future ahah 🙂 Thank you for sharing this, Lois! xx

    • Apparently so. I’ve never read those books so I had no idea that they were written by Kami haha. I think this book will be one I turn to when my contemporary kick takes on that dark yet hopeful vibe. 😛
