He was the one.
The man she wanted with all her heart.
But it took years before Bree realized she deserved more then what Max was willing to give.
Max, was cocky and arrogant...
Too strong-headed to admit that he felt more for Bree than just lust.
Then it happened...
One devastating night, and it shook Max to his very core.
That's when he began to see life in whole new way.
Now he's left to sort through the mess that he's created.
Will he be able to rise above it all and make amends with those he needs the most?
Or will the damage be irreversible and leave him longing for what could have been?

ALPHA-LICIOUS! *Copy provided as part of blog tour* And C.A. Harms has done it once again! Damn, she really knows how to write drool-worthy, yummy, alpha-men! Shattered by Love is the 3rd book in the Shattered by Love Series. Each book in the series centers around the different Parks siblings and the love of their lives. In this book, we get to know the story of Max and Bree. Max is a sexy firefighter. He is a headstrong, loyal, and knows what he wants. There is just one thing that he doesn’t do — commitment to one woman. But seems like fate has changed that, when he met Bree. It was a booty-call, a non-commitment type of deal. Things with her went from great to a downfall but seems like fate has once again made him realize how precious life is. Thus, he stopped fighting fate and went to woo Bree for real. Bree is a caring, selfless woman. She usually puts herself in second. But when she stops second-guessing herself, she became this confident woman but still managed to stay as a caring, selfless character. It was definitely a whirlwind romance between this two. One accident has managed to get them together, to really know each other and to fight for each other. This is one of those reads that kept me rooting for the Max and Bree to be together even though there were times that I doubted if they are really suited together. And when they finally figured every-freaking-thing, I was like “WOHOOO”! To CA Harms, thank you, thank you for sharing your heroes and heroines!! I’m so excited for Tanner and Lily’s story. I know for sure that it will be a roller-coaster ride! To Ly of HEA, as usual, thank you so much!
What I Thought: Wow. Just wow. Having gotten all the series in prep for this tour, I blazed through all the books. I became addicted to the emotion, the love, the turmoil and the excellent writing style by CA Harms. I practically read each book in a single sitting. I found Max and Bree's story an invigorating story that rang true with me. So often we have been in or know friends in the situation these two are in. I was on the edge of my seat, waiting, hoping and wondering where their epic encounters and steamy relationship would head. Sometimes it takes a life altering event to awaken the fire in your soul, opening you to love and the possibilities of a life filled with another's presence. Max, the strong willed and strong bodied firefighter, had just that, on a grand scale. His life and mindset completely changed, giving him a one time opportunity to make amends and try to heal the heart and soul of his lover, to make a life together. I loved following their journey. They had their ups downs, and sexy moments to heat up the pages. The scenes weren't over the top, just lustful and addicting.The characters were strong real, making them easy to relate to, easy to bring them into your mind and feel like you are a part of the story. This read is one of the most addicting love stories I have read in a while, and who doesn't love a sexy firefighter? I highly recommend this read if you are looking for something hot to keep you warmed on these cold winter nights. Men and women, grab this book for yourselves, your friends and your partners, it's one worth reading again and again.
4.7 star I was pulled right into this story. The story flowed well I was kept interested in the story. The story has laughs, pain, betrayal, and heartbreak. I would recommend reading the below before reading this story Scarred by Love (Scarred by Love, #1) Broken by Love (Scarred by Love, #2) This is Bree and Max’s story. Max does not need anyone. But after one night he started questioning everything. His life and all the things he has believed of himself. After continually pushing Bree away and treating her like his very own booty call he is suddenly without her. She is moving on and he does not like it. He just realized that he needs her. Now he has to win her back. After pulling out all the stops and finally telling her he loves her are his lies that he told so she didn’t get hurt now going to be what rips them apart forever? I loved both Max and Bree. There are some tear filled moments and some anger filled moments in this story. I have to say I really love this series!!! I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book, this series, and this author.
All three of these books are great. I am excited about the entire series and lucky that I can start with book one and continue immediately onto book two, followed by book three. All the reviews are found in this post. The relationships in this book appear to be volatile. Not necessarily physically damaging, but verbally and mentally they are not good relationships. It seems that every couple in this story play games with each other and are constantly playing a tug of war game with each other’s feelings. That I did not enjoy, but there are many other things that I do love about this book. The friendships in this book are the best. The friendship between Zander and Beth, shadow my life. When I was in high school and college my best friend was a man. There were times it was hard to play second fiddle to the women in his life, but I was always there for him just like Beth. Then there is the friendship between Kate and Riley. They have been roommates and friends for so long they can feel each other’s feelings before they are spoken. All the girls in this book are amazing. They are all women, but are strong women. They stand up for each other, even when it means stand against their respective men. The “Girls Nights” make me jealous, I want those with my friends. Bree is absolutely my favorite character. She is sweet, loving, and puts up with so much BS from Max. I love that she finally pushes him to man up and of course Max man’s up bigger and stronger than anyone else. Their story is my favorite. Even with Bree’ s rough history, she is the strongest female character with the biggest heart.
