Pixie and Levi haven’t spoken in nearly a year when they find themselves working―and living―at the same inn in the middle of nowhere. Once upon a time, they were childhood friends. But that was before everything went to hell. And now things are… awkward.
All they want to do is avoid each other, and their past, for as long as possible. But now that they’re forced to share a bathroom, and therefore a shower, keeping their distance from one another becomes less difficult than keeping their hands off each other. Welcome to the hallway of awkward tension and sexual frustration, folks. Get comfy. It’s going to be a long summer.
Chelsea Fine sure knows how to make her characters steal my heart. A while back, Chelsea stole my heart with the Archer brothers, in The Archers of Avalon series, and now she has stolen my heart and rendered me speechless with Levi Andrews.
Levi Andrews is, as Pixie so eloquently puts it, “Hot guy. Handyman. My long- lost… something.” But, before we get into details about the incredibly sexy handyman by the name of Levi Andrews, let’s talk about the story.
First off, I did not expect to get so immersed into this story, but there I was, at 2 in the morning, finishing up Best Kind of Broken with a satisfied heart and possibly some dried up tears in the corner of my eyes (whether from a lack of sleep or this novel…I’ll never tell 😉 ), and I don’t regret one second of it.
Best Kind of Broken is not the type of novel that will have you breaking into tears at a moments notice, but this novel will make you feel so much, and by that I mean- yes, it will make you feel so incredibly sad at times you’ll just want to hug the crap out of Levi and Pixie.
What I loved about this novel is that the characters, and their story, took me through all these different range of emotions. I felt sad for them when they were sad, and I got angry when they would do or say things that hurt each other, or just made my heart hurt. I laughed hysterically during their bickering and banter battles, and I fell completely in love with them through it all.
From the first page, I knew I would love Pixie with her fiery attitude, her confidence, and also, her vulnerabilities. Levi was the sexy, witty, asshole (only sometimes though) meets boy next door, and I could not get enough of him! Their relationship was funny, sexy, at times heart-breaking, and just filled with all sorts of great sexual tension. If that alone doesn’t convince you to pick up this novel, maybe this quote will. 😉
“I skim my hands up his back and into his hair, stroking the strands as gently as he’s kissing my scar and loving that his lips— Levi’s lips— aren’t afraid to touch my brokenness.”
