A woman trying to rebuild her life.
Kennedy is doing all she can to escape, to prove that she’s not the monster her father was. A simple life of peace and service is all she needs.
A man haunted by a past he can’t forget.
Cain has buried his demons under layers of control and success. The only thing he needs is his company and his solitude. Certainly not a woman with captivating green eyes filled with ghosts so similar to his own.
He’s a reminder of the life she’s left behind. And she’s a threat to his tightly guarded control. As sparks fly between them, they discover that what they might need most is each other.
But with pasts like theirs...you never know when darkness might descend.

Sweet, Beautiful and Heartbreaking Journey
I loved Kennedy and Cain’s story. They’re two beautiful people that are badly bent but not completely broken. Honestly, they’re perfect for each other. Their struggles to overcome the pasts that haunt them just broke my heart. Neither one wanted to fall but the pull between them was undeniable. Little by little a tentative friendship blossoms and before long love takes hold. Slowly it starts to fill the cracks and glue their shattered bits back together.
There were quite a few unexpected twists in their story. I especially loved the unconditional love from their friends. The people that both Kennedy and Cain have come to call family.
I would definitely recommend this book and if you choose to read it I’d also recommend tissues.
I want to move to Sutter Lake!
Ms. Cowels has done it again! Beautifully Broken Control is another fab entry in the Sutter Lake series where each book is yet another 5 star entry into a great series with wonderful characters and a solid storyline.
Cain and Kennedy are each fighting the sins of their family. Kennedy is looking to escape the sins of her father, hoping that she can start over in a place that will value her for who she is and not who her family was and what they did. Cain is looking to forget his mother and sister.
They come together amid wonderful friends who were each featured in earlier books in the series ... but the writing is so good that you can start with this book and go back to the start. WARNING! If this is your first intro to this series, you can start with Beautifully Broken Control because the writing is so good that Ms. Cowels describes the characters so well ....but you’re going to want to clear your calendar and nurse that “cold” that has you on the couch all week as you binge read!!! Hahahahaha
This story has a sub plot amid the romance with a bit of suspense ... Cain’s company is being sabatoged by those closest to him and Kennedy is being pursued by someone as well .. the strange incidents just don’t add up.
If you’re looking for a new author ... or are familiar with Ms. Cowels and are looking for your next read, look no further. Download BBC immediately!

HOLY CANNOLI THIS STORY!
HOLY CANNOLI THIS STORY! I honestly can’t decide if this book is my favorite out of this entire series, but I felt so deeply with this book and the storyline and couldn’t get enough! Cain’s past has caused him to be the hard man that he’s become and vows to let nothing get through the walls he’s built. Kennedy is essentially in hiding, attempting to start her life over and stay in the shadows while making it on her own after the tragic events her family caused. She’s vowed to stay away from people with money and power, two things Cain has. At first meet, the sparks fly, but Kennedy is quick to shut them down but Cain is determined to get to know her and what she’s all about. Amidst all of that, accidents start happening around Kennedy and places/people she interacts with, nobody realizing that she’s the actual target. Once Cain figures it out, Kennedy is kidnapped and it’s crazy to find out who’s behind everything! The mystery of who’s behind everything I definitely did not see coming, but it kept me on the edge of my seat trying to guess who it was! I cannot wait to see who is next in this series after loving this book so much!
