Blurb: Pixie Marshall's freshman year of college ended two weeks ago, as did her residence in the school dorms. Which means she's in need of a new place to live and, subsequently, a job. She started working at Willow Inn because one of the job perks-and she'd use that term loosely-is free room and board. But what she hadn't realized is that her free room shares a hallway and a bathroom with the only person she was hoping to avoid for the rest of her life: Levi Andrews. As in: Hot guy. Handyman. Keeper of all her painful memories.
Once upon a time, they were best friends on the brink of being something more, but that was before everything went to hell. All Pixie wants to do now is avoid him completely, which might be harder than she thought. Because despite everything that happened before, Levi hasn't let go of his feelings for her either.
*First of all I would like to thank the publishers for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
Review: Best Kind of Broken tells the story of Pixie and Levi, two best friends that after a tragic event haven't seen each other for more than a year. Then, they find themselves living under the same roof, sleeping door to door and there is no way of avoiding the elephant in the room. Theirs is a love story but the love comes slowly. The story is not rushed, little by little we get pieces of their past and we start to understand what happened that made them the way they are now. But don't worry the chemistry is there from the beginning.
This is a beautiful story about friendship, loss, forgiveness and love with some humorous sparks that will put a smile on your face more than once. It is not a long novel, so the plot doesn't get repetitive like in some new adult novels where they get hot and cold a thousand times. And it turns out to be more meaningful and well developed than you might think.
With the alternate point of view from Pixie and Levi you get to know both characters quite well. And some of the secondary characters are worth a mention, the atmosphere in the inn is always fun and warm with everyone giving their unsolicited advise. Also, Levi's best friend is quite a character, I'm just gonna say that he has a goat as a pet and goes everywhere with it.
This was my first book by Chelsea Fine, but I am quite impressed. I found her writing fresh and enjoyable and I am going to check out her other books for sure.
