Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Not for me"

    I like strong funny women, she is not that. Found so much of the story not believable. I returned this book half way through.

    "What a Surprise!!!"
    Where does Beautifully Damaged rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of the most exciting and interesting books I've listened. Surprising, romantic, emotional. Exquisite!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beautifully Damaged?

    The plot was so complex. Many side plots and characters making the story so interesting and addictive.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was the one when Amber proposed :-)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!!! And I almost did ;-)


    Any additional comments?

    I have bought this book as a romance. I was seeking a nice story with a hot hero and some bad boy actions. What I got was soooo much more. It is truly one of the best books I've listened because of all the extraordinarily balanced drama, crime, romance and action. I'm waiting for the next book from this series.

    "Great Story"

    Thought I had it figured out and then it changed--great book. Amy Rubinate does another great job as narrator.

    Story
    "Such potential for a great story and such a shame"
    What would have made Beautifully Damaged better?

    The author should have spent more time building their relationship up. The story didn't have a good indication as to why the girl would fall so hard for this guy in a matter of brief meetings, to the point of almost worship. There wasn't enough depth in the story. Also, the girl in the story was sooooo annoying! Get a backbone! Have some self respect!


    What was most disappointing about L. A. Fiore’s story?

    I literally rolled my eyes about every half hour at how weak and pathetic the girl was in different situations.


    What about Amy Rubinate’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job in every aspect.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Beautifully Damaged?

    The scenes were Trace told her to leave, to get out and they were over and Ember would follow him everywhere.


    Any additional comments?

    This story has great potential with the right 'tweeking' here and there. Was very disappointed to see such a good story get ruined the way it was.

    "Horrible narration"

    The problem with this book is the fact it was read by a horrible narrator! I will never read a book read by her EVER! I believe that I would have given a better review if I had read it on my Kindle. This is a case of a bad narrater making a average story a book you will never want to pick up and read again. This was also my first time reading this author and I don't think I will try reading her again, there are so many other titles and authors I would prefer.

    "Not what I expected"

    Story started as college romance - introverted girl attracted to experience bad boy. The mystery theme developed, which I liked. The amount of topics were wide and various. On the fence to read the next one.

    "OMG"

    Who knew. You could not see the end, I love the shift in character and role play. Tough girl. The title had me, kept passing it over. But it was a good read. An awesome read. On to the next!

    "Love Comes Full Circle"

    I enjoyed this story. The many twists and subplots kept me on my toes. Can't spoil it for other readers but I really loved the characters and ending.

    "Dissatisfied"

    Having red the book previously, I was disappointed to hear parts miss out and the characters back drop were somewhat different . Kind of spoilt it a little. The narrator's voice I found to be unexpressive.

    Story
    "terrible"

    full of cliches. reads like it was written by a 12 year old girl. Its reminiscent of twilight, In that the main character thinks she's plain and uninteresting yet this "amazing" man finds her irresistible. Its a romance novel. narrator was fine.

    "Enjoyable listen"

    Like Twighlight meets 50 shades. Enjoyable if you like that type of thing and definitely far better narrated than the latter!
