From #1 New York Times–bestselling author Kami Garcia comes a red-hot romance that will break your heart and put it back together again.
Her heart has to break before it can open.
When star soccer player Peyton Rios receives an offer from her first-choice college, senior year starts off exactly as planned. But when Peyton uncovers her boyfriend’s dark secret, she confronts him—and finds herself falling down a flight of stairs. Peyton’s knee—and maybe her dream of going pro—is shattered. Everyone is talking: Was she pushed, or did she fall? Peyton knows the truth, even if no one believes her.
He has to let someone in before it’s too late.
With her future on the line, Peyton goes to stay with her uncle in a small Tennessee town to focus on her recovery. Dating is the last thing on her mind—until she meets sweet, sexy Owen Law.
But Peyton doesn’t trust her heart, especially when she senses that Owen is hiding something. When their secrets are finally exposed, Peyton has to decide if love is worth fighting for.

The story was great, enjoyed every page.
This book is amazing!
This book caught my eye because I am a soccer player and the girl in the book is a soccer player. But turns out it is so much more than that. The love story tugged on my heart to the point where in the last 30 pages I was pacing back and forth through my living room. This book was exceptional and i recommend it to teens and up.
Broken Beautiful Hearts is absolutely outstanding.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book.
I’m beginning to realize I might need to adjust my stance on YA contemporaries.... Broken Beautiful Hearts is that good! I loved Peyton and her ENTIRE FAMILY, Owen was fantastic, the setting was superb and the plot was riveting. This book deftly dealt with really difficult topics in a timely manner that was so respectful to the audience - it did not talk down, demean, belittle, or preach. It was gritty, real, and honest. This made perfect sense after reading the author's note alluding to her personal history with some of the topic matters and I'm glad that she included that. I loved this sense of family highlighted in the book, I loved Peyton's fierce independence (as well as her growing maturity as she learned there is no weakness in accepting help), I loved the different nuances and intricacies in EACH relationship. And even I loved the plot twist that almost made me drop my kindle (and shattered my poor little heart too). I'm a little jaded when it comes to Young Adult contemporaries, but now I'm convinced I must give the genre another try - starting with Kami Garcia's The Lovely Reckless. Broken Beautiful Hearts is absolutely outstanding. 5 out of 5 wine glasses.
