Best Kind of Broken

By Chelsea Fine

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

Sometimes moving on means moving in . . .

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 more harder than she thought. Because despite everything that happened before, Levi hasn't let go of his feelings for her either.

Biographical Notes

Chelsea lives in Phoenix, AZ where she spends most of her time writing young adult fiction, painting murals, and avoiding housework at all costs. Her obsessions include: superheroes, coffee, sleeping-in, and crazy socks. She lives with her husband and two children, who graciously tolerate her inability to resist teenage drama on TV and her complete lack of skill in the kitchen.

You'll fall for Pixie and Levi, just like I did — #1 New York Times-bestselling author Jennifer Armentrout
Eloquently written, Fine's story has a way of makinge ven the most minor characters leap off the page — RT Book Reviews
This book destroyed me. Tore me into little tiny pieces. But somehow, with lots of tape, some laughs and some very steamy times, put me back together. Chelsea Fine's style is witty, visceral and fresh. All I wanted to do was crawl inside this book and live with the characters. And now all I want is MORE. And my own Leaves. And some paint. And a thunderstorm . . . — New York Times bestselling author Chelsea Cameron
