Shattered Blue is a fast-paced and riveting romantic novel by Jane Taylor Starwood. This emotionally charged romantic suspense tugged at my heart as Matt and Shane’s romance – love, at first sight – unfolded before my eyes. I totally fell in love with Matt after Shane revealed to him, her deepest darkest and most shameful secret, and to her utter relief, Matt just held and cradled her. Shane suffers from PTSD, and what she had mistakenly thought were only flashbacks were in actuality real events that were happening to her. Her abuser, whom she assumed was long dead, was not only alive, but toying with her. Shane goes to great lengths to keep her past from affecting her present. And for a time she succeeds…that is, until her past, comes roaring back and threatens not only her life, but the life of everyone she holds dear. This time, however, Shane is not the same scared child. She fights back with an inner strength that she didn’t even know she possessed. Shattered Blue held my interest from the first page until the last, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the book was also crafted with some unforeseen twists and turns in it. This is a well-written engrossing novel, and I would recommend giving it a read. I received this story free of charge from story cartel in exchange for an honest review.
