This is an example of a book that is damaged by a lack of good editing. There are a large number of mistakes in spelling and grammar, which many readers find distracting and serious enough that they will stop reading books and may not read more by an author. While the overall pacing of the book is acceptable, some parts have unacceptable timelines. Some parts just aren’t realistic. The women are seriously injured and can hardly move, but that doesn’t keep them from having sex. A good editor should be able to eliminate these problems. The book addresses some important issues. There is the grief that a spouse can become stuck in after a partner dies. Tyler shows how self-destructive a life can become. Ashley’s story is about spousal abuse and its ramifications. This is a topic that isn’t covered enough in literature, but this one has a special aspect since a police officer is involved. Either of these could have been explored more and made Broken Shield a more significant book. What happens to Ashley could have been a story by itself and raised important questions with the reader. Unfortunately, these opportunities were sacrificed to a routine romance. Isabella has shown that she knows how to create a good story to hold the reader’s attention. It would be nice to see her turn her work into something with more depth, especially if she’s going to pick important topics. Anyone looking for a book that provides some entertainment will find this suitable. It was a story with potential that was unfulfilled though.
This book demostrates that the lesbian romance book can be just as good as standard fair. It hits all the targets. well paced and ploted romance. a woman in danger from a mad man. and of cource very well writen love seens. The only con i can see to this book is the lack of a plot twist. it's all fairly strait forward, but in a romance thats just fine. To top it off the main characters are only slightly to good to be true. A good read worth the time and money!
