Beautiful Broken Rules by Kimberly Lauren ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway


What happens when you create rules to keep others out?

One thing Emerson Moore has come to terms with is that she is the school slut. She knows her way around a frat house and how to get what she wants. She doesn’t make any excuses for her actions and she doesn’t pretend to be anything different. She is who she is and with that she knows how to have a good time. She’s made rules to keep relationships at bay and avoid the demons of her past.

When her best friend, Cole has his two friends from back home move in with him she begins to think she has met her match with Jaxon Riley. Jax is the perfect mixture of tattooed muscle and a sweet-talking mouth. With “hand” written notes, a voice that exudes sex and knowing just how to get under her skin, Jaxon learns how to break all the rules. But will he just end up breaking her heart anyway?

Guest Post 

Sugar and Spice Hello Ladies! (and gentlemen, I know you’re out there somewhere!), My first guest post, this is exciting! Thank you for letting me take over a spot on your beautiful blog, I really appreciate it. So, Sugar and Spice asked me to write about my favorite scene in Beautiful Broken Rules. This is actually harder than I thought it would be. There were many scenes that I was excited to get to, excited to write and excited the way they turned out. I love the way Emerson starts off the book with making her walk of shame out of a frat house without any clothes on. This was the first thought that played out in my head before I started actually writing BBR. I pictured her trying to sneak out and yet trying to hold her head up high. Some say she needs to think higher of herself – but I feel that we’ve all gone through points in our “New Adult” age where we didn’t exactly act the way our parents would approve of. It’s part of growing up. You have to make fun mistakes or your life is just boring. I’m not saying we should all be walking out of frat houses in our undergarments at seven in the morning… but, do something at least a little crazy! You’ll see throughout the book how Emerson gains confidence in herself and mostly just a respect for herself. Jaxon helps bring this out in her. Jaxon shows her how to respect herself and in the end, she does. I hope that you enjoy Beautiful Broken Rules – it sure was a lot of fun to write and I cant wait to move on to Jaxon’s sexy twin brother, Jace!

Author Bio:

I'm a wanderer, an adventurer, a traveler.

I want to see it all. I haven't been everywhere but it's on my list.

"She travels the world & home is always in her heart."

Lately if I'm not traveling or chasing a toddler, I'm writing. Which is weird because I hated writing in college. Oh wait, that's because that was boring. Who really wants to sit there and cite all your sources into APA format? Not this girl. Writing for yourself is enjoyable and cathartic. Please try it. Then tell me about because I love indie authors.

When I was 19, I packed up and followed my high school sweetheart from Texas to California. We had a blast living it up in San Diego. Four years later we made a crazy decision and packed up again and moved to Germany. What? Yep, you read that right. Guess what? Best decision ever! We OWNED Europe. For three years we saw as much as we possibly could. We lived an hour outside of France, a couple from Switzerland and Italy. Most amazing time of my life. Please go out there and see the world, you won't regret it. After Europe we moved back to California, and for now we're just debating our next adventure.

I earned a degree in Child Development. And now I write novels. Makes perfect sense! I write because I walk around all day with these stories in my head. It's nice to be able to get them out of my head in an organized fashion. I hope that someone out there enjoys them, because I have enjoyed so many others'.

  1. Great guest post! Any you are absolutely correct, we have all done things we aren't proud of that would put our parents either in the grave or rolling over in it. It's a part of becoming who we are as adults - eventually. Thankfully I never had to sneak out of anywhere naked! This looks like a great story to get lost in for a little while. I look forward to reading it.
