Overview

Ember Walsh is a trusting soul with the quiet beauty of her late mother, who perished in a mysterious car crash when Ember was three. A little tomboyish from being raised by her father, Ember packs a punch when a stranger gets pushy with her in a bar, catching the steely blue eyes of a tall, gorgeous tattooed man—Trace Montgomery. Still damaged from her last disastrous relationship and warned off the bad boy by friends, Ember fights the smoldering heat that Trace sparks in her when he begins shadowing her like a dark angel.

Burdened by a lifetime of horror and heartbreak, amateur fighter Trace doesn’t want to want Ember. His deep self-loathing keeps him from having any meaningful relationships, but Ember is an itch he can’t scratch. The two push and pull, slowly crumbling their walls, seemingly brought together by fate, because the turmoil that haunts their pasts is interlinked in undeniable ways. But can these two fighters finally lay down their arms?

In Beautifully Damaged, L.A. Fiore delves into deep scars and lets love and forgiveness uncover redemption.

This book is great. But there are so many twists and turns and Dynasty moments that I sometimes wondered if Blake Carrington was going to come out at some point and suddenly Alexis would do away with Krystle and Trace would be Krystle's brother and leave Ember for the Oil world. This is a very deep and dark book. There were a slew of characters and the further into the story you go the more and more you find out just how they are all connected, and how totally effed up they all are--and they are all effed up. Trace is a very broken character and so many times in this book I feel like telling Ember, "Run, girl. Run away, far, far away. That is all kinds of that sort of boy who will kill you when he thinks for a second you may leave him and he will keep you in his freezer to keep you close by afterwards." But then at the same time she would stalk him and I would shake my head and wonder ask Bunny, "Why is it he is happy she is stalking him? What is wrong with these people? Co-dependency is not a happy place, unless it's you and me, right, Meow, Meow?" She agreed. But the thing is all this brokeness seems to work. Somehow in a bad and unhealthy sort of way it starts shoring up all these holes. And as it goes... it makes for some harrowing and and eerily beautiful love story that makes you cry and hope for the best. As much as you want every to have love, there is something about the really messed up ones... you just pull for them a little bit more. I was really digging deep for Trace. And there must be something really wrong with me, Harry Potter screwed me up because at somepoint I started thinking that happy endings aren't a given. I don't believe you always get them. I worry a lot reading books that they just won't happen. Tabitha Suzuma worked me over in Forbidden. I am an optimistic person in real life but if you give me a book I am convinced by the second chapter they will never get together and someone will more than likely die. No one kicks the can, I assure you. But Trace he really really needed a lot of work. I know a lot of people are making a lot of comparisons between Beautiful Disaster and Travis to this book and Trace. I have to say that that would be like comparing the movie Twister to an actual natural disaster. The amount of damage the two books deal with is incomparable. Beautiful Disaster is one of my most favorite books. I love Abby and Travis. This book is like wading through hell compared to them. I could read Beautiful Disaster once a month. This book is so full of heartache and pain I don't think I could do it more than a few times a year. Read with discretion. This book is incredible but it will leave you with a heavy heart.

Beautifully Damaged is a tantalizing, emotional upheaval that takes the reader on a darkly erotic ride that will captivate, ensnare, arouse, offend, and seduce. Ember and Trace are two unlikely heroes that will save each other through love and sacrifice. Beautifully Damaged spoke to me on many levels. The pain that Trace lives through-survives-touches close to home. The courage and faith that Ember shows in this story gives me hope that there are really people out there that love with their whole soul. Through their battles, heartache, and journey to a love that outshines them all-Ember and Trace, are my new favorite book heroes! Yes he is damaged, but her beauty will break through the darkness and light up his shattered soul. This is story is not for the faint of heart, or the easily offended. It is honest and raw, beautiful and ugly, full of love and hate….how much would you risk for the person that completes your soul?
