Meet Broken Beautiful Hearts!
 

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.

 

Excerpt:

Mom comes up behind me. “What’s going on?”

She follows my gaze and sees Tucker hit the ground—and three older guys laughing at him. Mom narrows her eyes.

I know that look.

“I’ll be back.” Mom marches between a Bronco and the truck parked beside it. For someone who is paranoid about my safety she rarely worries about her own.

I catch her arm before she makes it past the front of the Bronco. “You can’t go over there alone, Mom.” “Of course I can.”
“I’ll go.” I try to squeeze by her.

“You just had surgery, Peyton. You’re staying here. I can handle those Neanderthals. But call Hawk and tell him to come out here anyway. Those three boys need a good scare.” Mom takes off before I can stop her.

I pull out my phone and follow her. I don’t think I have Hawk’s number. It’s not like we call or text.

Shit.

Where’s Mom?

“Leave me alone,” Tucker pleads.

Garrett grabs Tucker and hauls him to his feet.

I catch a glimpse of a figure darting between two cars near Garrett and his friends. It’s another guy.

Mom cuts between two trucks and yells, “Get your hands off him!” Garrett and his friends look over at Mom. They don’t notice the mystery guy charging toward them.

The new guy on the scene grabs Tucker and tears him away from Garrett, simultaneously clamping his other hand around the jerk’s neck.

“What the—” Garrett can’t get the words out.

The mystery guy tightens his grip on Garrett’s throat. “If you want to start shit with someone, let’s see how well you do against somebody your own size.” He shoves Garrett away from him. “Only a punk would pick on a freshman.”

Garrett coughs and rubs his throat. “You’d better watch it, Owen.” “Or what?” Owen laughs and shakes his head like he thinks Garrett is pathetic. “I’m right here. But you’d better bring your friends, because you’re going to need help.”

The other two guys take a step back to make it clear they aren’t accepting Owen’s challenge. Garrett puffs out his chest, but he keeps his mouth shut.

“That’s what I thought.” Owen points at Tucker’s broken skateboard. “And you’re paying to replace his board.”

“The hell I am.”

Owen walks up to Garrett and looks him in the eyes. “Those tires on your truck look expensive. How much would it cost if you had to replace one of them? A lot more than a skateboard, I bet.”

It takes Garrett a second to catch on. “Stay away from my truck, Owen.”

“Like I said, you’re paying to replace his board.” Owen steers Tucker toward the stadium. “Let’s go. We’re done here.”

Tucker looks back at my mom and nods—a silent thank-you, as if he knew she would’ve stepped in. Owen turns in our direction.

He looks right at me. His expression is a complicated tangle of emotions I can’t unravel. There was a time when I would’ve wanted to try to do some untangling, after watching a good-looking guy swoop in and rescue someone. But I’m done with complicated.

I was all over the Beautiful and Dangerous Creatures series, but when I saw Garcia was doing contemporary, I was over the moon, since that is my favorite genre. I loved her last contemporary romance, and am excited to read more.
