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 never know when darkness might descend.


Interconnected standalones in a series are becoming my jam, I love making all the connections with the characters. And it’s a major bonus when you see your favorites pop up in the later books. Cain and Kennedy’s story brings two broken souls together in such a slow burn way that you can’t help but devour their story.

Jensen has finally found that family she’s been looking for in Sutter Lake even if she couldn’t quite say that was the truth. It’s tough when you come from home that’s just so broken and constantly blaming yourself for the fall of that. I liked that she started a new life in Sutter Lake on where I felt she was truly happy and just care-free. But there’s still so much holding her back to fully trust in people.

And that’s where Cain comes in! I absolutely loved how protective he was of her and that he wasn’t an a-hole about it. But he has his own personal demons that he’s continuing to fight.

Beautifully Broken Control had a little bit of everything and it’s definitely a bittersweet farewell to this series. This was definitely a great addition and conclusion to this series.
