REVIEW

The Shattered Hearts series has been one long emotional ride for me.  I was simply blown away with the ending in Relentless, and then the heartbreaking disappointment Claire and Chris had to endure in Pieces of You.  But Bring Me Home, the third and final book in the Shattered Hearts trilogy was all about happy endings.  And if you love the HEA, you will eat this book up!
“I feel like a failure. I failed her and you.”  ~ CLAIRE
This series has been about Claire from the start. When we first meet her she’s a very broken girl, hiding a deep secret that pretty much knocks her down and kicks her ass. She’s so broken she can barely cope with her day to day life and spends much of her time meditating to try and push the secret away.

This is where we meet Adam. Adam is a free spirit and just what Claire needs to shake her out of her funk.  Adam is persistent and charming, and good looking, and even comes from a nice family.  He’s got a few secrets of his own and so he and Claire really hit it off.  I never really liked Adam until about halfway through Bring Me Home, then he started to grow on me. I enjoyed his part in the last book a lot, in fact, I looked forward to those chapters. 

“Sometimes you have to give someone something they love in order to show how much you love them. It seems simple, but sometimes the thing they love has nothing to do with you. And that’s OK.”  ~ ADAM


But then there’s Chris.  Claire’s ex-boyfriend. The one she’s trying to put behind her, the rock star who’s singing songs about Claire on the radio now because he’s famous.  I LOVED Chris right from the beginning because I just got the mature vibe off him.  He didn’t really behave like a rock star and compared to Adam, he really had his shit together.

After Claire reveals her big secret in Relentless, this series morphs into a love triangle, with both guys trying to win Claire over. Claire is still messed up, even after releasing some of her pain with a dramatic admission to Chris at the end of the first book.  She’s pretty messed up emotionally.  And books two and three deal with her journey back from the brink of a crippling depression.

“Hope is the only thing that has kept me going for the past year and a half.” ~ CHRIS


I’m not going to do spoilers in this review, but I will say that I enjoyed Claire’s emotional character arch.  I think she grew as a person and she made some very difficult decisions, was able to let go, and move on with a new life.

And the ending?

Just picture perfect!

Book One in the NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestselling series.

“Sometimes letting someone go is the ultimate act of love.”

Claire Nixon is a college student with a past full of secrets and heartbreak.

At seven years old, the death of her mother by drug overdose destroys her faith in humanity and herself as she is tossed from one foster home to another. Feeling unwanted and disposable, she fights to keep herself safe in the system. Until, at the age of fifteen, she is saved by her first love, and soon-to-be rock star, Chris Knight and his mother, who quickly becomes the mother she always wanted.

When Claire encourages Chris to leave town to pursue his dreams of musical stardom, both Claire and Chris don’t realize this will be the biggest mistake of their lives.

One year after Chris leaves on tour, Claire has carved out a new life for herself in a new city far away from the life she left behind with Chris. On a fateful morning, she meets sexy surfer Adam Parker.

To Claire, Adam is just another flirty customer at the cafe, until a chance encounter and seemingly innocent comment spurs a bet between them. The bet is simple: If Adam can get Claire to reveal the secret that made her drop out of college and leave her life behind, she has to re-enroll. If he doesn’t succeed, she gets to keep her secret and he has to stop stalking her at the cafe.

Claire thinks she has this one in the bag. She’s perfected the art of forgetting her past. But she isn’t prepared for Adam’s relentless pursuit or for him to share his own secrets. And she’s definitely not prepared for the love of her life, Chris Knight, and her secret, to come banging down her door one year later.
