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 theirs...you never know when darkness might descend.

Working at Jensen’s bakery during the day and teaching ballet classes at night, Kennedy lives a humble, but happy life in Sutter Lake. You’d never guess she grew up in a world of wealth and privilege, which crumbled around her after her father’s publicized arrest. Kennedy built a new life for herself and cultivated new friendships, but the cloud of her past was a constant shroud over her, making it difficult to trust even her closest friends. When she meets Caine, she finds a man who’s just as emotionally guarded and just as wary of letting new people get close to him. While both Caine and Kennedy are attempting to escape their past, their every action is done to make up for their perceived past mistakes.
What starts as a tentative, slow-building friendship, sparks a growing, tension-filled attraction. Despite Kennedy's fiercely independent persona, Caine has an overwhelming need to protect her, slowly breaking down her defenses the more time they spend together. But Caine's reluctance to lower his own walls is just one of several roadblocks threatening to thwart their budding romance.
With heart-breakingly damaged characters, a gut-wrenchingly emotional narrative, and a romance that's sweet, hopeful, angsty, and swoon-worthy, Beautifully Broken Control is a fast-paced, action-packed, must-read love story. As the finale of the Sutter Lake Series, it's a perfectly satisfying way to bid farewell to these characters and this series. I look forward to seeing what Catherine Cowles comes out with next!
