Product Description

Product Description


“Darkness swept through my vision as my short lived life passed before my eyes. His face was the last thing I saw before I succumbed to my destiny. It’s funny how life can change its direction in the blink of an eye. What had once brought me strength has now made me weak and it was no one’s fault but my own. I did this and unfortunately he would now be the one to suffer for it. I could feel my heart breaking into a million pieces all over again and the feeling made me want to die.”

At eighteen years old Bennett had finally realized what her feelings for Gray meant. Through all the loss and love that they had been through with each other nothing was going to tear them apart, except maybe time. She was willing to fight for her new found love of this boy she had always known. But forces beyond their control were willing to do whatever it took to do just that.

With Gray heading off to the police academy and her headed to college things were bound to change. Time apart, temptation, lies and loss would test the strength of the relationship they thought would outlast anything.

Five years later Bennett and Gray will be faced with a reality neither one of them ever thought possible. It’s up to Gray to save Bennett from a force so strong it will test his strength, love and undying devotion he swore to her all those years ago.
They both learn that life isn’t always fair and the things you desire most in life can come at a costly price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this! 17 Oct 2012

I am not going to write a summary of this awesome book, because I am terrible at writing them without giving too much away, and I think the one in the description is better than one I can come up with.
This book had such a strong emotional pull as I was reading it. The two main characters, Gray and Bennett, were childhood best friends, who became more and the book takes you through their story of trying to live with each other, and without each other. I spent so much of this book, cheering on their love and crying at their losses. I was on the edge of my seat, all the way to the end of the book, praying they would get their happy ending.
I know this review doesn't do it justice, an doesn't fully explain my love for this book. So good. I read this book in one day, and I tried to read it all in one sitting, because there just wasn't a good time for stopping. Every chapter left me with a desire to go right into the next. I Can't wait for some more great stories from Amanda Bennett.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tragically beautiful story of the relationship between Bennett and Gray. 6 Jan 2013
By Nikki Clark - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
A tragically beautiful story of the relationship between Bennett and Gray.

Not everyone can say they met their soul mate at an early age, but Bennett and Gray can. A fateful meeting after Bennett and her family moved made Gray and Bennett inseparable. Although they appear to be just best friends on the surface, they know that there is so much more going on inside of themselves. After Bennett finds her best friend Hannah making out with Gray she is enraged and nearly ruins her friendship with Gray. After fixing it she can still not control her anger about it being hidden behind her back and she lashes out at Hannah. Eventually everything goes back to normal with a few mishaps here and there between the friends; until Bennett and Gray take it one step further. Living out the last few weeks they have together they officially start dating. Bennett ends up pregnant and refuses to tell Gray because she doesn't want to crush his dreams of being a cop. Taking care of the unplanned and unwanted pregnancy she loses Gray for what she thinks is forever. Bennett's life goes downhill as she spirals into a very deep depression in which Hannah is there to help her out of. Four years later Gray comes back into the picture after Bennett assumes she is out of an abusive relationship. Gray and Bennett still suffer their ups and downs, especially after Gray's mother dies. Bennett's ex continues to come into the picture until he nearly ends Bennett's life. Never fear though because Bennett and Gray get their happy ending....or do they?

Off to read book to to see what happens next in the ever exciting relationship of Gray and Bennett.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Delivered! 4 Dec 2012
By D - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Beautifully Broken by Amanda Bennett was absolutely beautifully delivered. She took something darkly acute and treated it with affirmation and grace.
The story is told through Bennett's (the main character) heart. There is such an irony or paradox to her strength and resolve towards how her life should be. There were times you felt so broken along side her and other times you just wanted to smack her for being so self-condemning. Although, the situations Bennett finds herself in are intense, dire and severe, she suffers more from her internal battle that is present all along.
Beautifully Broken really elicited so many emotions. There were times it was difficult to read. not because the writing was lacking but because it was so full, it was sharp and cutting.
There were a few times in the story, I wished a particular situation had been developed upon more than it was. It didn't necessarily take away from the story, I just think it might have given more insight into the thoughts of the characters -- especially with the supporting characters. At times they were on the outside looking in almost. That being said, given the subject matter, I could see how they actually would be in the very position of being on the outside and being rendered helpless. Their presence was strong enough though, that they were able to bear some of the much needed weight of the story.
I liked that for this particular story, author Amanda Bennett was not vague with her intentions. It needed to be in- your-face writing. However, she was not so blunt that it took away from the heart and soul of the two main characters. There was always room for understanding and realization of the feelings and emotions of the characters. Which in turn allowed the reader to feel the story. Feel it in every word. Feel it in every action.
This was definitely well written and well thought out. Although a tough story to embrace, it is well worth the time and the heart to read Beautifully Broken.

*strong subject matter, might not be suitable for all readers*
