    SHATTERED GLASS was one of those books that everyone had read but me, so while I was on my M/M binge read, I thought I would give this one a shot. If you’re a fan of quirky characters and writing (something like Josephine Myles) you’ll probably like this.

    What stood out to me as special was the way in which Alexander writes. It takes a more fun approach with the funny subtitles within each chapter. I’ve never seen this before and while it took a bit to get used to, it brings a lot of character to an already fun and exciting book. I definitely enjoyed reading it.

    Austin is a straight – or so he thinks. He has a wonderful job and fiancée and seems to get along with her well. There’s nothing wrong to make him unhappy or want to get away from the life he already has. But when he stumbles upon this young man, he is entranced. There’s no other word for it. Something grips him so hard that Austin falls into a mental tailspin as he re-evaluates his sexuality.

    SHATTERED GLASS is one of those books that kind of has it all. The humor itself is enough to make you check this book out. The hilarious moments become some of the most entertaining bits in this book. Yet Austin comes across as very approachable and relatable as he falls hard for this stranger. It’s kind of cute actually.

    The romance blooms beautifully, creating an believable relationship even though it starts from something very sketchy. The sex is wonderful as well, stemming from the intense sexual tension that is there from page one. Dani Alexander covers ALL the grounds in this steamy and silly read.

    Surprisingly Good

    I've lowered my expectations for m/m books because they are mostly sugary sweet or a thinly veiled excuse agenda. This was none of these.

    This had a lot of humor, which I liked. The lead is, of course, rich but that that was the only blatant trope that jumped out at me. The rest was, in not exactly realistic, at least very interesting.

    I will be looking forward to the author's next book.

    Reviewed by Christina Marie at The Morning After Romance: Dani Alexander has an amazing and unique writing style!

    The writing in Shattered Glass is lovely. Dani Alexander has a truly great writing style. I really liked the character interactions and dialogue. There are some typos but I was able to shrug them off on account of the story being so damn absorbing. Like paper towels it sopped my attention right up. RIGHT UP! Absorbent.

    Also, BUNNY SLIPPERS! Enough said.

    Only I have more things I want to say. This was hilarious. The characterizations were amazing. Peter is snarky and hostile. Austin is sarcastic and sweet, but really he's kind of a jerk. I mean, the things that tumbles out of his mouth, and his delightful thought nuggets = Epic POV. I love both characters. I appreciated the realism in their horrible decision making skills. Of course, since they are both so deliciously flawed, there is a bit of angst that balances well with the humor.

    Oh sweet tasty morsel of flawed characters how I love you so.

    I had some minor issues with the crime plot. There was a lot going on. I think some of the events just got in the way of the story and took away from Peter and Austin's relationship. Also, I was very aware at some points that I needed to engage in some suspension of disbelief. Even with that in mind, this book, and more importantly Dani Alexander's writing jujitsu (seriously Dani got skills) completely blew my mind.

    I can't stop thinking about Peter's brothers. Cai in particular. I cannot wait for their stories. I'm practically salivating from how much I want to read both of their books. Nope, not practically, I am. That's definitely drool on my keyboard.
