Broken Beauty (Broken Beauty Novellas #1) by Chloe Adams

**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.

Four Stars

I loved this book, everything about it except that it was too friggin' short and ended right in the middle of the story. So of course I can't wait for more!!

This is a heartbreaking story of a young woman who is brutally raped and beaten by two men she knows and her politically powerful family is more worried about damage control than this beautiful, broken young woman!! This is heartbreaking to read! How can parents be so cold and awful. I had tears in my eyes more than once reading this short but incredibly powerful installment of this series!

Mia knows her attackers, but under the instruction of her father and fathers staff she is convinced that she can't be sure. Especially since one of the attackers is the son of one of her fathers biggest supporters! And God forbid she should make waves or cause problems!

But Mia has some wonderful people on her side. Her BFF Ari and Dom, the hero policeman that was there to save her. Once Mia learns that she is one of seven other women who were raped by these same men. They all have matching rape kits but none but Mia remember, none but Mia were able to fight back!!

This book ends on a cliffy that SUCKS!! Mia discovers something that rocks her world again and can't imagine where we are going from here, but I can't wait to find out!!
