Crisis’ story is FINALLY here!


Barnes & Noble :

shattered by you cover.jpg
What started out as a deal quickly became a friendship that conquered monsters.

I killed, but I escaped hell.
Emotionless. Disconnected. Cold. A mannequin. It’s what I’d become in order to survive the years held in captivity. I was able to endure the abuse and devastating loss as long as I remained detached.
But he wouldn't let me.
Crisis, the bass guitarist in my brother’s rock band, Tear Asunder. He’s cocky, rude, a total man-whore. But the rock star has far more beneath the surface of his inked skin, and he’s determined to make me laugh again.
He made me a "deal", but really, it was blackmail.
His terms were simple. Until his playful honesty became the building blocks to something unexpected. Something strong enough to pull me from the eye of the storm.
Because even though I escaped years of abuse, it didn’t mean I was free.

Excerpt #2
I walked down the hall, pulled the elastic band on my boxers and glanced at my hard throbbing cock. “You’ll have to wait a little longer, buddy.”
“Are you really talking to your cock?”
I let go of the elastic and it snapped hard on my abdomen. Haven wasn’t making coffee; she was coming up the stairs with an armful of clothes. Fuck, she looked hot, long blonde hair messy as if she’d tossed and turned in her sleep, and she had sleepy eyes—adorable.
“Yeah. He’s angry this morning.” I stood right in the middle of the top of the stairs so if she wanted to get by, she’d need to brush up against me. It was childish, but fuck, I was a guy.
Her brows lifted. “Why is he angry?”
I smirked, loving that she was down for a little play. “Placed an ‘out of order’ sign on him.” Her brows drew together and her eyes flicked to my tented boxers.
“Doesn’t look out of order.”
I laughed and couldn’t help myself as I stroked the back of my hand down her cheek. It took her by surprise and she swayed backwards. I grabbed her arm before she toppled down the stairs and pulled her up onto the landing next to me.
A white piece of clothing slipped from the pile she was holding and fell at her feet. I smirked when I realized what it was, and took great pleasure in helping her out since there was no way she could bend over and get it without everything falling from her grasp.
I let her go and crouched, picking up the white lace panties. I held them out and her nose twitched like a rabbit sensing danger. “I like white. Prefer pink though, for future notice. And lace I love.”
She was trapped because if she snatched them from my hand, she’d drop the clothes and if she didn’t then . . . I curled them up in my palm.
“They aren’t mine,” she blurted.
God, she was cute. “Darlin’ I know they are and I love that you’re denying it. Means you care.”
Now that raised a little heat in her cheeks and I liked it. Shit, I liked it a lot because when I left a few months back, that would’ve never happened and now that was twice. She was affected by me—good to know. “I don’t care.”
I shrugged then turned to head back to my room to hide my newly acquired treasure. I had no doubt she’d search for them the second I left the house. I looked back over my shoulder and caught her eyes staring at my butt; could’ve been my back, but unlikely. Really, it didn’t matter which. I was just impressed she was eyeing me up.
“You can look, but don’t touch,” I said.
Her mouth dropped open then snapped shut. I disappeared around the corner, then heard her stomping down the hall. Haven wasn’t a stomper. She was graceful, elegant and controlled. Too controlled. And that part of her was coming down.

My Shattered By You Review ...

Finally fun loving, easy going Crisis's story.   I wasn't sure how Haven and Crisis were going to work but oh boy did they.

Haven is so broken and rightly so.  Her past is so hard and heart wrenching.  No one should have to live through that.  But the thing is even though Haven has lived through a living nightmare she's still super strong.  At first she portrays strong but in reality she is strong, she just doesn't realize it yet.

"You will break. One day that cool exterior you're hiding behind will shatter. It has to.  It has nowhere to go.  And when it does happen,  I intend to be there to help you pick up the pieces."

With the help of Crisis, Haven lets him slowly and surely.  To the point that he gets under her skin and won't let go.  Crisis may have been the player of the group but with Haven he's different.  He wants more and he doesn't care that she comes with heaps of baggage.  In truth he loves every part of her the good and the bad.  

~ That was what kept us alive.  Our bond.  I'd do anything from him just as he would for me.~

Gah! Ream and Haven's sacrifices for one another are so heartbreaking.  Haven's' still trying to be strong for Ream but that can only last for so long until she breaks.  Thankfully Crisis is there to support her when that happens.  Crisis was amazing from the way he's with his family to the way he loves wholeheartedly with no judgement.

" . . . Your pieces may have scattered, but they didn't break."

Tear Asunder and everyone associated with them can't seem to stay out of trouble.  With Haven on the verge of breaking and her and Crisis becoming something more, there's now a stalker on the loose with a a target of destroying Haven.  Gah! Hasn't she had enough?

I LOVE THIS SERIES!! It's another dark yet beautiful series.  Crisis has always been one of my favorites and he sure did NOT disappoint in this book.  He's gentle and patient and kind. Which is exactly what Haven needs in order to open herself up and trust that things are going to be okay for the first time in her hard life.

4.5 I Freaking Love Crisis Thumbs up!
