Title: Unbeautifully Loved
Series: Breathe Again, #1
Author: Emma Grayson
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

In three words I can sum up everything I learned about life. Regardless of the shit going on in your life, this fact still remains.

It. Goes. On

Lexie Todd knew these 3 simple words. They were her mantra. So, after dealing with years of abuse at the hands of her boyfriend and the father of her son, she knows what needs to be done. With help from her best friend Mollie, they go on the run.

After months of being on the run they finally find the perfect town to settle in. Unable to trust and always having her guard up, the last thing Lexie wants is to get involved with Lukas Gunn.

Persistent, annoying, bossy, over protective and extremely hot, Detective Lukas Gunn.

After an incident leaves her vulnerable, Lukas knows there’s something haunting her. He’s determined to find out, wanting to protect her and make her his. But Lexie is determined also. Not wanting to give up her past, she pushes him away. Repeatedly.

But when history repeats itself, will Lexie finally be able to trust those around her to keep her safe? Will Lukas be able to save her? Or will Lexie succumb to only knowing what it’s like to be Unbeautifully Loved?

Lexi, her son, and her best friend Molly are running away from Lexi's ex boyfriend also her son's father. He is an abusive jerk, and they are trying to stay far far away from him. They've been on the run for months now, and finally found a place to call their own. 

Things change when Lexi meets Lukas a cop in their new town who lives a few houses down from them. Then not only that but Lexi gets attacked by someone they think has been hurting other girls. Then a mystery guy shows up named Erik and everyone but Lexi seems to think he's not all there. But Lexi doesn't seem to want to listen to anyone about anything including Lucas, and Erik. 

Overall the book was okay. I really enjoyed the plot line, and the side characters as well. Also Finn was a cutie. But my main problem was Lexi. I really didn't like the fact that she didn't listen to anything anyone said, she even ignored her own instincts. I thought she was one of the dumbest heroines ever. She's the reason I thought the book was only okay, she just wasn't someone I could like.
