Peyton was so vulnerable and broken, but that’s what just made the story even more amazing. It made me wonder and curious about what really happened to her, that made her that way. She seemed like a weak character at first, and I thought that she was shallow, but who am I to judge her when I can’t even put myself in her shoes, right? Contrary to what I thought, she was a really strong person. She may have a lot of trust issues, but that’s really understandable.
Reed, on the other hand, had a playboy image, and has scars of his own. He may not seem like it, but he was also damaged on his own way. I really enjoyed his personality; he is patient, sensitive and sweet. He can be serious, but also has a playful nature. He knows how to push, when to push, and when not to push. There were a lot of times that he crossed some lines, but he genuinely tries his very best to fix up his mistakes.
The sub-characters were also amazing, especially Quinn, Bret and Dr. Lorraine. They were all quirky and can just manage to make me smile. Prescott Lane did a great job in balancing the serious and fun parts, and that was really nice. Although, I think I had a problem with the pacing of this novel. At first I couldn’t really decide, if it was slow or fast, but I think it became a little too fast towards the end of the novel. Maybe that’s just me, but, yeah. There were also at times that the shifting POVs got confusing. They’d suddenly change midway, and even the sub-characters had their own voices at times.
Either way, the title was just befitting with the story, because Peyton and Reed were just simply like that: perfectly broken. This is a breathtaking novel about strength, family, and taking that leap of faith. It just made me realize the vulnerability and being broken does not make your entire personality, and that sometimes, it’s okay to be broken and damaged, too, because we’re beautiful that way, in any direction we look from.
