This was a really good read and held my interest all the way through if I was you make sure you have some peace and quiet because once you start reading you won't want to put this down. I just loved the characters but at times my heart just broke at some of the things they had been through. I really liked watching Jasmine and Angel's relationship develop and them fight their demons A super read I would recommend it to all.

The great storyline and fantastic characters grabbed my attention from page one and wouldn't let me go until I finished reading the very last page! Therefore, I ended up reading this book in one sitting!

Oh my gosh! Grab the Kleenex! Shattered just literally ripped my heart out. I was so engrossed with the book that the ending just slapped me. What an explosion of emotions! Mindblowing cliffhanger! Two childhood friends now broken and lost, carry the burden of demons that haunt them. Secrets that caused their worlds to spiral downwards. Is the bond that Jas and Angel once had strong enough to heal them or will the secrets and the demon continue to haunt them? Will Angel be able to protect Jas this time? I felt as though I was in the scenes with the characters living their grief and pain as they were trying to heal. So many raw emotions. I loved this book!! I can't wait to read the next installment, Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts). I strongly recommend this book!!! 5 stars++ Shattered Hearts Series Shattered, Book 1 Into Pieces, Book 2 Book 3 soon (Kris and Chase's story)

I was given this book by the author for an honest review. I liked this book. It pulled me in immediately with these beautiful characters who were so tragically broken. The book is seen from everyone's point of view so there are few secrets that are kept. Angel is the ultimate sexy hero who worships Jas. The whole time I wondered if they would be able to find the strength to fight for each other or would Angel's stubbornness and dedication get in the way? Would Jas give life another chance? These are questions that plague the novel. Good read. For more reviews, go to

Both Angel and Jas are broken. Both for different reasons. His is war and hers is the incident she keeps trying to put behind her. He is back home now and out of the Marines. She has written him almost daily while he's been gone. However, neither one has shared their pain with the other. There has always been a relationship between them. She's his former best friend's little sister, and that former best friend is gone. But there is still the bro code to uphold. I enjoyed the idea of this story, but got upset at the characters and how it played out. There was no ownership to feelings nor openness and honesty about what was holding them each back. I got very frustrated about that. I was extremely ticked off regarding Vivian. If...he shouldn't have...then...GRRR! I will read book two very soon as I have to know what happens with them, Marcus, and Kris and Chase. ARC provided in exchange for honest review.

For a first time author I think you've done a wonderful job. The way the story grasp you from start to ending is amazing. I love the characters and how at some point in time you've had a friend like Jas and Kris. Even the guys who you want so bad but cant seem to touch. Touching on love, struggle, losing a love one, SEX AND HEARTBREAK makes this story so good and so tempting that I personally can not wait for the next book to see where the rabbit hole leaves Jas and angel. Hoping that Chase gets Kris on THEIR OWN TERMS.

This book was full of tons of laughter and tears for me. I love the tension that we see right off the bat with Angel and Jas. It’s that tension that you know once they both admit to themselves, its just going to be explosive in all aspects of the word. Jas is a strong character although it takes her some time to remember it and bask in her own strength. Angel is just yummy, from the way he cares about Jas and down to some of his mannerisms. I don’t want to go into too much detail about them for those of you that have not yet had the pleasure of reading the book, so I will leave it at Angel and Jas are great together and look forward to reading more about their journey. Also where can I find me an Angel?? I had so many moments in the book where I felt myself getting emotional, one of them being when Jas and Kris discuss the change in their friendship. I was so glad that they were able to work through it and pick up where they left off being the “terrible two.” Those girls are just hilarious together and I think balance each other out nicely. The banter that Chase and Angel have with each other is great and makes for some seriously entertaining moments in the book. The friendship between those two can definitely give Jas and Kris a run for their money. Although my bets on Jas and Kris totally conquering Chase and Angel :-) I am demanding now that Kris and Chase get their own series. Pretty please it would be so cruel if they didn’t. I just have no words, but their developing love/relationship whatever you want to call it, shall be explosive and I hope we get to see this as readers in their own mini series. Chase is just wow yeah man. Lastly the way this author ends the book was just cruel and unusual punishment, but I can definitely see why she did it that way. I hope Volume 2 in the Shattered Hearts Series is already being written don’t know how long I can wait to find out what happens next. Kudos to this author and her first book, look forward to reading many more of her books as her writing skills develop even more
