Beautiful Broken by Nazarea Andrews
University of Branton, #2
She's been broken by her past. He's been breaking for as long as he can remember.
Together, they can make each other whole--or destroy each other.
When his best friend asks for something, Dane rarely says no. But babysitting a newly sober Scout Grimes for three weeks isn't exactly a normal request. And with their history, it's a recipe for disaster. Not to mention, she's drop dead gorgeous and he can't touch her.
There are few people Scout trusts as much as Dane Guillot. He's always been her safe place, where nothing can hurt her. He's also been the only man she's never let herself want--screwing up their friendship isn't worth one amazing night together.
They have too much history, and too much personal baggage to ever work. But if they are willing to take a chance on love--it might be worth the risk.
Nazarea Andrews is an avid reader and tends to write the stories she wants to read. She loves chocolate and coffee almost as much as she loves books, but not quite as much as she loves her kids. She lives in south Georgia with her husband, daughters, and overgrown dog.

—So. Funny story. I’d been listening to this for about two weeks, and loving how it reminded me of Dane and Scout, as people even if not the story. And then, the album cover popped up from one of my college girlfriends on facebook and I stared at the dude on it and realized—holy crap, we went to school together. So. That was a weird thing.
there’s a scene in this book—actually, two—that really screamed this song. There were some of my favorite to write. If you’ve read the book and want to guess which ones, I’d love to hear what you think!
—I loved this song for the way Scout felt about Dane over the course of time. And also—driving a Maserati down a dead end street.
—It was just gorgeous and sweet and perfect for the softer, tender moments. It also speaks to how much neither of them expected this from each other. The line ‘how many times will you let me change my mind…I can’t decide if I’ll let you save my life or if I’ll drown.’ Screams Scout.
—This was actually suggested by one of my readers as Dane’s theme song and I really liked it, so we kept it around.
—This really hit me as Dane, just all of it. He is such a messed up headcase but he wants the best for Scout—even if that means someone better than him.
—There was a lot of memories built into this book. A lot of history between Dane and Scout. This song reminds me of history—good and bad—so it was one I listened to a lot.
