Sex with no strings. That's the way Brodie Beaumont likes it. He uses women and they use him...

Suave, handsome Brodie Beaumont has a history of using and being used by women. A past he doesn't like to talk about has turned him into the type of guy he is today, but he hasn't really cared. Until the beautiful and feisty Gabrielle Demeres comes back into his life.

Gabrielle learned the hard way what type of guy Brodie was the first time she met him. His crude seduction attempt earned him a slap to his face, and Gabrielle wasn't exactly looking forward to another encounter with the cad. Unfortunately, her best friend was marrying Brodie's brother, and Gabrielle and Brodie would be forced to spend time together whether she liked it or not.

As things in the small, quiet town of Turtle Lake take a decidedly dark and dangerous turn, Gabrielle and Brodie only have each other to turn to. Will they be capable of over coming their aversion to one another while coping with their own troubled pasts and dealing with the current dangers surrounding them? Or is their hostility just skating the fine line between love and hate?

I adore the Beaumont Brothers! This is Brodie and Gabrielle’s story. We have two people that couldn’t be more opposite of one another. Their first encounter was not fun and they are dreading seeing each other now. Brodie has a past that makes him who he is today, a playboy that will not commit to spending two nights with the same woman let alone commit to a relationship. Gabrielle has a past that she has kept hidden from everyone and has made her a bit more reserved than most. All hell breaks loose and they lean on each other for support. To watch their relationship bloom and feel every single emotion is beautiful. The author has an amazing way with words and will rock your world when you find out about their pasts! “There was no question in my mind, she was a goddess, and I silently cursed my stupid attempt at carelessly trying to get her into my bed last year. One does not simply just have sex with a goddess.” “...the trees blowing in the wind outside the window caught my eye. I studied them as they swayed, the way they withstood the abuse from the wind was amazing. I wanted to be like the trees. Able to stand tall the next day after being slammed by something I had no control over; only dropping a few fragments of my self-esteem the way the trees only lost a few of their leaves.” “I do know that when I kiss you, my entire world stops. My head buzzes and my body goes into overdrive , making me dizzy . Just like with a car, my body goes into high gear to maintain the speed my heart is pumping because of the way I feel about you.” There is a respect that these two develop for one another. Fear and rejection have made them weary but their love is incredible!

*Copy provided as part of blog tour* My first book from the author. When I started reading this book, I’ve just remembered that this is the second part of the series — the author has also generously provided me a copy of the first book, but being a klutz that I am, I actually forgot about it. Realizing that this is the second book, I’ve took a risk to read it without reading the first one since this book can be read as a standalone. There were times that when it is noted that the book can be read as a standalone, I felt lost in the story. But with Beautifully Used, I didn’t get lost and I felt that this is really Brodie and Gabby’s story. Brodie and Gabby. They are the same but different at the same time. Different in a way that Brodie is a carefree, cocky guy who is used to women falling in at his feet. He never sees them as a challenge until Gabby. Gabby is a sweet, loyal woman who doesn’t run after a guy. Both of them has some kind of past that when they shared it with each other, they became close and helped each other heal. Beautifully Used is a sweet, easy, read story for me though there were some dark elements in the book. Some scenes were also predictable and cliche but still okay with me. There is just a thing with the synopsis which I think I was mislead — Brodie being a bassist which for me translates in being a musician equals to rock star status. I guess it was a let down for me when he is more of a “bartender” rather than a “bassist”. Now, I’m definitely reading the first story to know the story of Lena and Jackson. To Susan, thank you for sharing the Beaumont brothers and their muses. :) To Ly of HEA, thank you, thank you!

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle: *Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review Oh, I liked this one even more than Beautifully Wounded. Susan channels Gabby and Brodie beautifully, and the tension is great.  A bass playing, bar manager playboy meets singer/songwriter and aspiring author, each with tragic pasts to overcome, each with love to give... and each willing to work towards getting the HEA they're initially not sure they deserve.  While Beautifully Used still has its painfully dark moments, Susan proves that she's becoming a master at taking emotionally scarred characters and bringing them together to heal until they reach their HEA. Most definitely recommended for contemporary romance readers looking for a fun and emotional story with some drama. Beautifully Used is book #2 of the BEAUMONT BROTHERS series but stands just fine on its own, however, once you meet Jackson and Lena, you're probably going to want to know more. Just sayin'. ;-)
