by Erin McCarthy (Goodreads Author)
From the USA Today bestselling author of True, Sweet, and Believe comes a tantalizing New Adult novel about finding love in the most unexpected ways…
Kylie Warner prides herself on being optimistic, but after finding her best friend in bed with her boyfriend and flunking chemistry, her upbeat attitude has taken a dive. Even an impromptu hook-up with her sexy new chemistry tutor only brightens her mood slightly. After all, it’s not like she’ll ever see the tattooed scholar again…
While he’s a whiz at complex equations, Jonathon Kadisch has trouble when it comes to figuring out women. So when Kylie tells him that she’s pregnant after their night of passion, he’s at a complete loss. He’s prepared to be a good father—unlike his own deadbeat dad—but he’s less prepared to fall for the genuine and alluring blonde bearing his child.
With emotions running high, Kylie wonders if Jonathon’s devotion is out of growing love or looming obligation. And when heartbreak threatens to tear them apart, Jonathon will have to fight for the only girl who’s ever made him feel whole…

Part 4 in a series but could be read as a standalone but recommended to read the series as a whole
My Shatter Review ...
When I first started to read this I was starting to think that it was going to be similar to the last couple of books in the series but I was pleasantly surprised for this book to be a bit different compared to the others. There was still angst and insecurites but Darwin/Jonathon was not a tattooed uber alpha he was a super sexy yet quirky chemistry genius. I was digging this book until about the 90% mark when I wanted to bitch slap Kylie for all her insecurities. I'm not trying to be harsh but there comes a point when you want the insecure heroine to just pull up her big girl panties and get over herself.
Luckily Kylie got her shit together or I would have been pissed. This was not your typical romance where it things all rainbows and unicorns and love at first sight. For Kylie she is getting over her Nate the douche canoe of an ex-boyfriend who broke her heart and cheated on her. With all the emotional turmoil it starts to effect her school which causes her to need a tutor .... enter Darwin/Jonathon.
While Darwin helps her with chemistry he also helps her with a night of good loving to help her feel better about herself and to get over her ex. What they didn't expect was for science to make a breakthrough. They were both content with this one night stand until Kylie has to tell Darwin/Jonathon that they are pregnant. I must say he takes the news rather well and with this new pregnancy they decide to give dating a try, which is a bit backwards but worked until tragedy happens and Kylie's insecurities overpower her.
I think Erin McCarthy rocked the dual POV's and captured Darwin to perfection. I adored everything about him. It was a quirky angsty romance with many ups and downs but still super sweet as the rest of the series. I believe this is the last of the series and if that is the case it ended well. Sweet story minus the insecurities overload but all in all I adore this book and this NA series.
