Broken Beauty Novellas by Lizzy Ford/Chole Adams

Broken Beauty by Chole Adams/Lizzy Ford
Broken Beauty Novellas # 1

Broken Beauty is the first installment in the Broken Beauty Novellas by Lizzy Ford writing as Chole Adams. 

This painfully emotional start to this novella series started with a mature situation.  I don’t want to go into details due to spoilers, but the delicate topic was written beautifully.  I was fully vested in Mia’s life and also wanted to know more.  This gut-wrenching story had me sad, mad, and crying in that order.  I can not wait for more of Mia’s story. 

I also was intrigued by Dom.  I would really like to know more about him and how he is affected by Mia’s life.


**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.
