Audiobook Review: Beautifully Broken (Reckless Bastards, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Beautifully Broken by K.B. Winters

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

She thinks she’s broken and I’m the one to fix her.  

As an ex-Navy SEAL there are a few guarantees in life. 

Avoiding relationships is one of them. Dealing with PTSD is another. 

So when I come across the Reckless Bastards MC, it’s perfect for a man like me. 

Last thing I expect is to encounter Jana Carter at a painting class. Don’t ask why I was there. 

I can hardly keep my eyes off of her. She’s a shy, sultry vixen, and she grabs a hold of me so hard, I can’t let go. 

But, I don’t expect to fall for any women—much less find one who can deal with me and my messed up past. 

Just when I thought I’d built strong walls around my heart, I discover her walls are reinforced with steel. She’s so pure, so innocent—and hard. 

Against all the odds, I want her. 

I’ll do anything to have her, to make her mine. 

Beautifully Broken

Great start to the series!

The heroine: Jana – she is reserved and has a scar on the side of her face stemming from a traumatic incident in her past. She is curvy and blonde and has low self esteem due to both her curves and her scar. Especially when she hangs out with her ex-model best friend who gets all the attention.

The Hero: Max – he left the Navy Seals with PTSD and came home to Mayhem, Nevada to find out that his brother was in prison, though his brother’s MC, the Reckless Bastards, took him in and he is now a full fledged member. When his PTSD starts acting up and nightmares are keeping him up at night, his psychologist suggested he take some art classes to calm his mind since he likes to paint so much.

The Story: Max shows up at art class and sits next to Jana and they start talking as they worked. He likes her and is by her. Though he could hardly see her since her face was covered by her hair for most of the night, he thinks she is hiding something like possibly a black eye. When Max does see her scar, he is not bothered at all by it, in fact he has scars all over his body from his time in the Seals.

This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. Narrated by James Larceny and Summer Morton, they both have pleasing voices which I really enjoyed. I liked where the story went in this book and how the romance between Max and Jana developed. It wasn’t your typical MC romance, it was more like Max just happened to be a biker. Much of it took place at Jana’s house, not at the MC clubhouse like some biker romances.
