3.5 stars.
Nice traditional romance. The characters are predictable but interesting. Each is facing challenges and doing a poor job of moving on with their lives. The event that finally throws them together is a bit over the top but this is fiction so anything is possible.

While there are some hot scenes, I actually enjoyed the slow build in their relationship. A lot of emphasis was placed on touching. Touching hands, faces and just an overall quiet communication and acceptance by the two protago
I got this book as a gift and only made it to the end of the book through sheer will. As others have noted it's badly edited, which I may have been able to overlook if the characters were engaging, the story had been believable or the writing was good. That the author thanks her beta readers and editor in the acknowledgements makes this even more unfortunate.

I found Tyler unlikeable for the most part, where I'm sure I was supposed to find her at least somewhat sympathetic. As another reviewer ha
The story was probably 4 stars if not for editing. It was slow starting, but about halfway trough when the action began, it was gripping and exciting and turned into the kind of book you stay up all night to see what happens. But it was hurt by typos and editing misses. I understand that nobody is perfect, even a well trained eye needs someone else to give a book a second or third look, or to bounce suggestions off of. I find myself feeling bad that the people the author listed as helping, didn' ...more
Like all the Isabella stories I have read, Broken Shield did not disappoint in terms of new and exciting characters with a lot of chemistry and an interesting story to move them along.

The first encounters these two women have are unforgettable! What better way to make a good first impression than to give so ...more

Good Book

I gave it five stars because it's a good story I can relate with the characters. Losing someone is hard. This book gives you hope. Life goes on you just have to be strong. Good book
Who doesn't like a cop and a firefighter

So, who doesn't like a cop and a firefighter story. Great story about both. Both damaged but together they can heal.

the writing is so messy
You cannot overcome life tragedies alone. The two main characters needed each other to overcome very difficult events in their life. Liked the slow romantic build up.

Same issue with a lot of self-pubbed authors: needs many types of editing. Other than that, I guess the story is OK.
I thought this book was great! I love the transformation of the the main character!
