    Worth your time!

    Although I did not love this book like I did the others in this series by Cassia Leo I did enjoy it enough to recommend.

    This story features Tristan & Senia. We know some of their story from reading the other book in The Shattered Hearts Series, but this is their complete story. If you have read the others I recommend you read this one too! ENJOY!!!

    Unbelievable

    WOW this book was unbelievably emotional. It took you places you don't want to think about and the struggles that people go through. The ups and downs the laughter and the crying. The emotional mask that people wear so nobody knows what happened or what is going on. I was so happy that she was the one to heal him and the love that it produced was wonderful.

    Ok, happy for the story of tristan but was not happy with the end of the book. It felt like you could of taken it so many more places and you cut it short. Not so much as rush but it felt unfinished. Or maybe you rush to finish it. ? Thats why i gave it 4 stars.

    Another Great Story by Cassia Leo First let me start by sayi

    Another Great Story by Cassia Leo




    First let me start by saying that if you have not read the other books in the Shattered Hearts series you need to read them first. I loved that series and was so glad to read this book. Cassia wonderfully weaves the story of Tristan and Senia into the story of Chris and Claire from the Shattered Hearts series so you get to relive some of your favorite moments from that series and therefore is why you should read them first.




    I cannot tell you how much I love this book. Tristan makes for such a wonderfully messed up hero. He really wants to make things right for his family and her really has fallen for Senia, even though that is so not like him. He winds up being sweet and loving. He did make me a little irritated at times, (view spoiler) But he really does come through.




    Senia winds up being a great person for Tristan. She could have been a totally pushy, clingy girl who overdoes the drama but she isn't and for that I love her. 




    Favorite part:
    "This is the most beautiful wedding ever," she says with a deep sigh, then she uses a fancy napkin to soak up her tears.
    "Yours will be better." She looks up at me in total disbelief. "I promise."

    I Loved The Shattered Heart Series with Chris & Claire...so

    I Loved The Shattered Heart Series with Chris & Claire...so I knew I'd Love Abandoned!!!
    What I didn't know was how much I was going to Love Tristan, especially with Senia!!!
    This Book was Great! And like The Shattered Heart Series, this Book had some difficult Topics.
    Actually the Topic in Abandoned was more intense then the other Books...
    Tristan is a Damaged Soul with Abandonment issues and had 1 Hell of a Horrific Childhood caused by a Mother who didn't belong being a Mother. So Tristan being the Bass Player in Chris' Band has afforded to move away from the Memories and of course have endless stream of willing Girls to use to forget. Then Senia reenters the Picture and ends up being his Salvation, but not before a whole bunch of Crap happens. This was a Great Book, and it will def be 1 I reread multiple times!!! This is a Must Read and just like Cassia's other Books...you never want it to end! So if you've been on the fence about reading this Book or putting it off STOP YOU HAVE TO READ IT ASAP!!!

    This book was very rushed. The story did not unfold, it just happened. Chris and Claires story was told over three books. I wish Tristan and Senias story could have been developed better. Very disappointing.

    WOW! This story is a must after reading the first three books in the Shattered Hearts story. I didn't expect Tristan to end up being one of my favorite characters in this series but he is definitely is. This story completed the series. Tristan and Senia's story had to be told and I LOVED that is was told by Tristan. Sigh. This entire series is one of my favorites series that I have ever read. EVER.

    I loved Cassia's latest book, Abandon...It shows that even the bad boys can be tamed. Tristan was such a sweet guy, even if he didn't want any one to know it. And Senia is the one who got him to "come out" to show is inner "Sweet". He surely met his match...Can't wait for more of Cassia's books.

    Abandon  is a spin off of the Shattered Hearts Series by Cassia

    Abandon  is a spin off of the Shattered Hearts Series by Cassia Leo.  This story focuses on Tristan and Senia and is told mainly in Tristan’s point of view.  Throughout the first three books in this series we get to briefly meet Tristan and know him as an easygoing player rockstar.




    Reading Abandon, we realize Tristan is a totally different guy than what we considered him before. Once we see what he’s hiding under his tough guy act, we get to know and see Tristan for who he really is, and we learn his secrets from when he was a young boy.  What Tristan endeared was truly heartbreaking. We learn so much from why Tristan is a womanizer to his love he has for Grandma Flo and Molly.  We also learn how his Friendship with Chris Knight may have just saved his life.




    But Tristan’s life is turned upside down  after his run in with Siena at Yogertland.




    “I can’t promise that.  What happened outside of Yogurtland was one of the smartest mistakes I’ve made in a long time.  I hope i get to make those kind of mistakes with you…. forever. “




    Tristan also gets some really horrible news  that is going to change everything for everyone important in his life. Now Tristan has to decide what he’s going to do:  run or do the right thing.




    “My only wish is that the ones I love never feel the need to abandon hope.”




    Abandon is about growth, acceptance, trust, and true love.  This is one story we will never forget!




    “I think I’m finally starting to realize that love isn’t about fixing things or people.  It’s about sticking around when things can’t be fixed.”




    We  give ABANDON 5 + STARS.  Tristan is AMAZING and  sexy as He** and trust us,  you will not regret picking up this book.

    Abandon was the perfect ending to the Shattered Heart Series. When we first meet Tristan he is totally broken but we get to understand who he really is and how he got that way in Abandon and you can't help but fall in love with him.
    All of Cassis Leo's books are wonderfully written but this one truly melted my heart.

    I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Abandon and I loved it. Cassia Leo out did herself on this one.
    When we met Tristain in Bring Me Home by Cassia Leo he was angsty you didn't give him that much thought but in Abandon you can't help but fall in love with him. He is so deep and has many layers that he slowly reveals to you. I think my favorite part of the book is when we find out the meaning of his tattoo. Cassia Leo poured her heart and soul into this book and it shows. Tristian and Senia have become my favorite couple for the year. I enjoyed this book and I think you will as well.

    If you don't know who Tristan is well you are totally missing out. Tristan was introduced to us in the Shattered Hearts series. He is a bass player and Chris Knights best friend and one person I really wanted to dislike in the series because he was such a player and then you have Senia who is Claire's best friend. 




    If an author can make me cry while reading a book then I have to give them a high five because this story really had me going. Tristan to me was such a tough soul and his life was not easy and it made me go from disliking his character to totally loving him. Well done Cassia Leo, well done. 




    I loved the chemistry between Tristan and Senia and came to understand why they hooked up. I loved how strong Senia was and that she wasn't this broken down female that needed saving. It was a refreshing change and I am thrilled that Cassia wrote their story.

    “The day our wires crossed, You were broken, I was lost. But I found my way to you, To a place I didn’t know was true.




    I love the Shattered Hearts series and after reading Bring Me Home, I was ready to know more about Tristan. Tristan was the womanizing, bassist and best friend to Chris. Sex, drinking, and music seemed to be all he was about. He has always come off as a bit of jerk but we truly didn’t know much about him, until now. I wasn’t sure what to really expect from his story, but oh my god the emotions that I felt for all he had been through.
    When Tristan finds out that is grandma has stage 4 breast-cancer, his world comes crashing down on him. Tristan wants to give his grandma closure and finally settle down and make her proud. He’s gone through so much and he just wants to be loved and trusted.

    “You can’t expect anything good to last or you’ll always be disappointed. Everything dies.”

    Tristian came from a rough upbringing. His mother was a drug addict that neglected both Tristan and his little sister Molly. When he was 9, he and his sister went to live with Grandma Flo, and things started to change for him. His grandmother gave him stability and unconditional love and support. When he was 13, he got himself into trouble. Needing money and independence he went back to his mother to get himself out of a difficult situation, but the things he had to go through in those few short weeks, changed him forever.

    “Hell, I’ve been pretending to be someone I’m not for the past nine years. A few months will be a piece of cake.”

    Senia and Tristan have been around each other for years but after one night at Yogurtland, it forever changes things between the two of them. They have a big decision to make but this time Tristan is ready. He’s ready to change and be a better person. They both are hesitant but there is this attraction and undeniable chemistry between them. Tristan was unexpectedly sweet and caring with her. It was a very different side of him.

    There was a pain, drama, and heartache throughout this story. Ultimately this was book was about Tristan’s redemption and growth. He had to face his past in order to move forward. I honestly wanted to hug him at the end. Abandon, sucked me in right away and Cassia writing made me feel so many emotions. I absolutely loved this story.




    Favorite quotes:
    “..It’s not the love that I envy, it’s the trust. The feeling that no matter how bad you screw up, there is always someone who will accept you and love you for who you are; not because they have to, just because they can’t not love you.”


    “How do you go from being practically perfect to complete a**hole in less than two seconds?


    It’s a talent I’ve perfected and you should probably get used to it.”
    “You can’t let your past define your future. Once you get that figured out, you begin to understand the joy of living in the present. And the present is full of gifts that we can only see when we stop looking behind and ahead of us.”
