A Shattered Moment (Fractured Lives #1)


In the new series by Tiffany King, the USA Today bestselling author of the Woodfalls Girls novels, six friends—fresh from high school graduation—discover that the future can come at you from out of nowhere.

This is Mackenzie’s story…

Mackenzie Wilson once had hope for what life had to offer, but everything changed on the night of her graduation. A year later, the only way she can find comfort is by keeping her head down and hoping she remains unnoticed at college.

When Bentley James discovered Mac in that twisted SUV, he was just a newbie EMT on his first call. It was a gut-wrenching moment that made him realize not everyone can be saved—and sometimes they don’t want to be.

A chance encounter on campus brings Bentley back into Mac’s life. Despite her initial resistance, he sets out to discover the girl hiding beneath a shield of seclusion. He evokes painful memories in Mac—but also feelings. As the spark between them grows, Mac must decide if she can let go of the past and believe in something as fragile as love…

My A Shattered Moment Review ...

Dear Tiffany ...

Thank you for such a great story.  There was no woe is me, no pushing away, no miscommunications, no being a martyr.  It was just a beautiful heartbreaking story about a broken yet strong girl who starts to heal and move forward with the help of a beautiful sweet loving boy.

Mackenzie Wilson was on top of the world.  Especially after graduation and hanging out with her 5 best friends.  Then a tragic moment changes everything.

Bentley James has always wanted to help people, so being a EMT is right up his alley.  He however didn't know the reality or hardship of his job until his first shift, and realizing how sad and tragic life is and what difference could he can make in the scheme of things.

Mackenzie who now goes by Mac is still broken and a bit bitter but she's trying to survive day by day.  Even though she's haunted with her memories and is stuck in between the past, present and future.  Bumping into Bentley is the last thing she needs as he's an instant reminder of everything that she's lost.

The moment Bentley came across Mac he was drawn to her so to be able to have a second chance in  a better environment he jumps on it and takes a chance.  But Mac's a tough nut to crack with her very thick armor but Bentley's the right man for the job.

"Oh, shit.  My bad.  Look, I was just trying to be charmingly mysterious, but it's not what you think.  I promise."

Bentley is so sweet and loving and he slowly chips away at Mac's exterior until she start to live again and moves forward.  Her journey is a tough one but their relationship was sweet and heartbreaking as they find their way together.

I adored it and I can't wait to read more from this potentially great NA series.

4.5  Heartbreakingly sweet thumbs up!
