In life, you always learn one important lesson you won’t ever forget.
For me, it was to never have hopes and dreams.
They could shatter into a million pieces in a matter of seconds.
I’d managed to live by that one rule almost my entire life, until the day Harper and her little boy moved in next door.
One look into her guarded eyes and a flame of hope was lit.
Little did I know, her green eyes held more pain than my heart did. And breaking through the fortified walls she’d erected around hers would cause me more agony than I’d ever imagined possible.
I didn’t know if two broken and bruised individuals could come together and create something beautiful out of nothing but shattered pieces.
But I needed to find out.

My Review:

Shattered (Willow Creek Book 1)Shattered by A.K. MacBride

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars…
Talk about all the feels! This book has it all. I experienced so much in this book. Love, heartbreak, angst, some suspense and even a bit of humor. All in all, a perfectly balanced novel. This is an author I most definitely want to read more from.

Shattered is written in first-person with both Harper and Logan’s perspectives; an aspect I love in a book. Both Harper and Logan have traumatic pasts. While Logan has learned from his past and is moving forward, Harper is still running from hers. As I mentioned earlier, this book has it all. I never felt frustrated with the pace and I loved both characters. In fact, I loved all the characters and can’t wait for Logan’s brothers to have their love stories written.

Harper is new to town having moved there recently with her little boy. Harper is a sweet, caring woman. However, she is very guarded, keeping only a few select friends. She works at the local vet which I believe is the perfect job for her kind and caring heart. Unfortunately, Harper refuses to give her heart away again. Past experiences have her keeping constant vigil on the walls she has built around her life. She is not letting her guard down. Ever!

Logan, who just so happens to be infatuated with Harper wants her heart. He knows that won’t be easy and she is hiding secrets. That’s ok because Logan is a patient man. I want to add here, that Logan was amazing. Yes, he’s attractive and sexy and all those things that makes your heart grow. But most importantly, Logan is kind, caring, generous and patient. The way is was with Harper’s little boy is nothing less than precious. He is a gentleman.

There is some angst and drama but I don’t want to give too much away. This book was so great and you should get to experience all the feels on your own without any spoilers form me. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have. I highly recommend Shattered as a must read!

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
