Shatter Me by Tori St. Claire ~ FMR REVIEW


A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

Bound by honor, caught by desire...

Former Marine Alex McCray is ripped up inside over the knowledge that his best friend died saving him. Now he's returned to his hometown to honor a promise he made-to take care of his buddy's widow. Semper fidelis. "Always loyal." But Alex's loyalty is about to be tested, because there's never been a time when Reagan Sanders didn't make him burn with desire.

All it takes is one night for Reagan and Alex to give in to the deep, carnal need they've denied themselves for so long. But Reagan has secrets of her own?secrets Alex can never know about her marriage, or the kind of man her husband really was. But one night with Alex isn't enough. Not even close. Now Alex must choose between his sense of honor...and his heart.


Review by: Leeann 

This is a beautiful story about 2nd chances.
Things aren't always what they seem and Reagan knows this better than anyone. She was married to a marine who died in the line of fire. He is now the town hero to everyone except his wife. She knows exactly what sort of man he was & he was no hero. He was an abuser. For years Reagan suffered at his hands and now she is free. 
Alex was Reagans  husband's best friend. He idolized him so when he asked Alex to look after Reagan if he died, Alex took that very seriously. Now Alex and Reagan are falling in love and Reagan has to find the right time to tell Alex what sort of man his best friend really was. 

This is a really sad story. You can't help but feel sorry for Reagan for what she has gone through but you also feel frustrated with her. She has several opportunities to come clean with Alex but she never does. 
Alex is lovely but even when all the signs point to Reagan having been abused by her dead husband he just can't accept it for the truth.

This story shows that if your open to it, second chances are always waiting to happen. You can't always control who you love but when that opportunity it presents itself you know it's time to close the door on the past and move towards a future full of happiness and love and embrace it wholeheartedly.  

Awesome characters, fantastic storyline and a perfect way to lose yourself in the fantasy of a perfect world with a beautiful but damaged heroine and a super hot alpha military man who wants to be a knight in shinning armour!
Definitely  worth  checking out!
