Publisher's Summary

The most valuable lesson Emerson Moore ever learned was from her parents: Never get too attached to someone else. That's why this hard-partying college student plays by her own code of bedroom conduct, refusing to stay with the same guy for too long. She gets all the pleasure of having a good time without the messiness of a relationship. So what if frat-house hopping has earned her a certain reputation around campus? At least no one gets hurt this way - especially her.

When ridiculously gorgeous Jaxon Riley moves in next door, Emerson's not sure how long her vow against emotional intimacy can last. Jaxon's tattoo, muscles, and sexy voice make him tempting, but he also seems to really understand her...until his jealous ex-girlfriend and Emerson's life-changing discovery about her parents get thrown into the mix. After everything she's been through, can Emerson handle a real relationship? Or will breaking her rules just lead to a broken heart?

Book needs a better narrator.

The narrator should never do boys voices. Her rendition of a male character ruins the book. I would rather she just stick to her normal voice for the whole book instead.

Not my favorite

I love to read, but with long work days and commutes I've come to enjoy audibles to get me through my long drives to and from work. The storyline is ok. I have to admit, I may have appreciated it more if I was in my 20's, but being in my mid-30's, I couldn't relate. I've listened to a few other books that were based on a younger generation and I did enjoy them though. That was the reason for listening to this book. I can't say it any other way, so I'm just going to be honest. I couldn't/can't stand the narrator's voice. It's so annoying and the way she changes it for the different characters, made me cringe. I really wanted to stop listening to this book, but I'm one of those if I start something I want to see it through. The worst part is it's a series and knowing how I am, I will probably listen to the other two.

Good but...

I liked it but I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the book. The different voices the narrator used for each character (especially the men) were rather annoying. It definitely took away from the story.

Read, don't listen

Would you listen to Beautiful Broken Rules again? Why?

No. Couldn't handle the Texas accent. Really awful.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Fine story for younger listeners - 20's.

Would you be willing to try another one of Eva Kantor’s performances?

Maybe. Nice speaking voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

no

Any additional comments?

Narratior

It was hard to listen to. The voice was extremely annoying. The book was great if you could get beyond the voice.
