A steady stream of meaningless sex is all Tristan has left when he discovers the grandmother who raised him is dying and his best friend is getting married. He is lost; and the dark secrets in his past keep coming back to remind him of this.

Until Tristan has an idea that will change his life and fulfill his dying grandmother's wishes: Abandon his playboy ways and settle down. And who better to do it with than Senia, the girl who has occupied his thoughts since their scorching tryst in the back of his sports car. The only girl who makes him laugh and feel like a kid again.

But when his world begins to crumble around him, the pain Tristan is hiding finds its way to the surface. Will Tristan finally learn to trust again? Or will he abandon his chance at real love?

This full-length novel is a spin-off of the Shattered Hearts Series. It can be read as a stand-alone or after BRING ME HOME.

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!!!

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 will never see yogurt the same again!!!!! Tristans background story was very sad but the way he pulls through is the best and inspiring. It proves that even after so much sadness and anger that all of it can be overcomed. Love really does conquer all especially if you don't think you deserve it.

Ok, I have to admit that I wasn't a fan of Tristan before reading this book. He was always being a jerk but as we all know there is more going on under the surface than we realize. Tristan's world has never been easy and he is now the provider for his grandmother and sister. His mother is a drug addict and it breaks my heart to realize he never told his grandmother his address to make sure his mother would never find him. When Senia comes into his life, he isn't sure what to expect but deep down he knows he wants something more than the one-night stands from the band's tours. Does Tristan feel he deserves more? Senia is drawn to Tristan, she sees behind his mask and knows there is so much more to him than what he tends to show. When she ends up pregnant, Tristan steps up and Senia moves in with him. Of course, this road won't be easy for either of them especially as Tristan's secrets are revealed. A fabulous journey for both Tristan and Senia that had me laughing, crying and hoping they would get their HEA.

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 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 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!!!

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 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.
