Broken Beauty by Lizzy Ford

Broken Beauty (Broken Beauty Novellas, #1)Broken Beauty by Lizzy Ford
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a book I requested from Indie Inked via Net Galley. I'm quite late in getting to this read as it slipped to the bottom of my pile.

This is an awful story of Mia Abbott-Renou who wakes up one morning in a garden, naked, bruised, hurt and terrified. She cannot remember first hand what the hell happened.

She's been raped by the son of a wealthy politician who happens to be her own father’s political ally.

When she tells of this horrific crime that has happened to her all her Father can think about is himself and how the wrong attention would affect his political career. I was sooooo angry with his family for putting Mia through this awful ordeal. Being raped was enough, no support from her family because of they're own selfishness is quite abhorrent.

I hoped and prayed that Mia would have the courage to turn her back on what her family wants, most of all, what her Father wants and just report the crime and get the sod arrested!

I can't tell you what happens.

There is a book 2 that will though.

This was well written, Mia was quite immature at times, not sure if that is how the author wanted her to be portrayed. I could relate to the characters, so all in all, a pretty good read.

3.5 stars

**Contains graphic content involving the sensitive topic of rape and its aftermath. Not intended for teens under 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 until she realizes that her strength will bring healing and unlocking her memories will bring justice.
