A secret billionaire and the unbreakable girl he refuses to let go.
Collateral is usually an object. A thing—a car, a house, or expensive jewelry.
But in my world, that object is me.
My guardian owes a lot of money to his dealer, and now they've come for me.
On the run with no money in my pocket, I have no place to live until I meet a stranger—handsome, rich, and more intent on saving me than protecting his fancy car or home.
A billionaire like Holden Alastair doesn't belong with a girl from the other side of the tracks. I'm not capable of love or anything but running until fate intervenes. But with a broken leg and nowhere to go, I'm forced to accept his help, to live with a man I hardly know. One who has dark secrets.
I'm suddenly immersed in a world more dangerous than the one I left, swept up in Holden's big heart and hidden life—lies, betrayal, and threats behind every corner.
Now, I'm on edge, looking over my shoulder, biding my time to see who comes for me first. I think I'm ready, but nothing could prepare me for the twisted games that I'm about to play.
Follow River into Holden's world of money, wealth, and lies. Beautifully Damaged is a secret billionaire/forced proximity college romance featuring a dominant, wealthy jock and the feisty heroine who brings him to his knees. Enough intrigue to keep you turning pages and enough steam to melt your Kindle!
***This book contains dark and mature content and triggers.
International bestselling author J.A. Owenby grew up in a small backwoods town in Arkansas where she learned how to swear like a sailor and spot water moccasins skimming across the lake.
She finally ditched the south and headed to Oregon. The first winter there, she was literally blown away a few times by ninety mile an hour winds and storms that rolled in off the ocean.
Eventually, she longed for quiet and headed up to snowier pastures. She now resides in Washington state with her hot nerdy husband and cat, Chloe (who frequently encourages her to drink). She spends her days coming up with ways to torture characters in a way that either makes you want to throw your book down a flight of stairs or sob hysterically into a pillow.
J.A. Owenby writes new adult and romantic thriller novels. Her books ooze with emotion, angst, and twists that will leave you breathless. Having battled her own demons, she's not afraid to tackle the secrets women are forced to hide. After all, the road to love is paved in the dark.
Her friends describe her as delightfully twisted. She loves fan mail and wine. Please send her all the wine.
