! The Crystal Fragments, Book 1-3 (complete series). Impressive, captivating & intriguing w/ a super sexy alpha male.

Book 1 is FREE until June 13th, 2013. Please note series is complete!

Wow! What a debut by M.J. Lawless. I came across this trilogy while looking at Susan Johnson’s (aka C.C. Gibbs’) latest contemporary romance recently released in the UK. This series looked promising based on the description and

I seriously started this book not sure I wanted to continue through....but I stuck with it and the time invested paid off!

When Kris Avelar decides to take a break from life, going to a secluded cabin away from the hustle and bustle of civilization, she runs into a beautifully scarred man while getting groceries. The man's eyes bore holes into her soul but before she knew it, he was gone.....watching his car fade away. When she spots this car again

This is a tough one for me to review. I had been recommended this trilogy and I really wanted to like it - not to mention M.J is so nice. But I've got to be honest and go with how I really felt about this. This edition is all three books together, but i'm going to talk about each book individually because in my opinion the books did get better.

Book 1. Having read the blurb I was intrigued and was looking forward to reading this book. I have to say that shortly after I started the book I was sli

Well what can I say.....I thoroughly enjoyed this series and all in one hit with no cliff hangers!! Woo hoo!! Fantastic debut by a very talented author!!

Kris and Daniel were fabulous characters that I absolutely fell in love with, both complex characters, each had their history and back stories that slowly came out over the course of the trilogy. The romance side was a believable story and you actually lived and felt them fall in love despite their problems, even though this is a dominant millio

Brilliant read thoroughly enjoyed. Read this trilogy during my weeks holiday and loved it.

Riding the waves of 50 Shades of Grey. Not as powerful. Not as compelling.

The trilogy includes three books (each one is about a full-length novel):
Fractured Crystal: Sapphires and Submission
Fragile Crystal: Rubies and Rivalries
Refracted Crystal: Diamond and Desire

I read the first book. I couldn’t get into it. Good looking girl works as a junior secretary for an insurance company. She meets wealthy businessman Daniel. He’s gorgeous and ripped. They each had a bad incident in their past which is

I don't believe that any review I write can do this trilogy justice. It simply was that excellent.

Daniel Logan/Stone and Kris Avelar are both tortured by their pasts. Tragic, painful events shaped their lives and made them the people they are. Whilst I warmed to Kris quite quickly, I wasn't sure that I was going to like Daniel much, as he appeared to be, what I can only describe as, a domineering brute. But the more I read, the more I began to understand him.

It is so much more than many of the o

Lovely story!! I so loved Kris and Daniel, they are a total hot couple. He's British, she's half British half Portuguese, they met in a very unusual way, when they were trying to isolate themselves from the world. Very interesting story plot, very hot, challenging hero and very sassy
and sex fiend heroine :D

The first book needed better editing and sometimes the scenes were a bit rushed. Book 2 and 3 were better edited and the story and characters were deve

I loved this book
...starting out I didnt know quite what to think of it as the language was more advanced than im used too for this type of genre but sooo glad I stuck with it x the only book to of had me gaping with shock as its quite dark in places x barely put my fone down for days even found myself hiding in the stock room at work to get a sneaky read x

Wow.., what a trilogy! Can be a bit dark in places but amongst all the filth there was a decent, gripping storyline! Did not want to put my iPad down at all.. Infact I'm not sure i actually did. MJ Lawless does have a way with words which were at times a bit too advanced but overall the story outweighed that as a negative. Did not want it to end but glad it ended the way it did. A full 5 stars *****! (Plus it was cheap to purchase)

Wow what a long story. I absolutely loved it. There is so much depth of character, so much growing. Kristen and Daniel together came so far from their beginning at Comrie. so many twists and turns throughout. highly recommend!

I have picked this up and put it down so many times, I just can't get away with it. The plain descriptive language used, for example 'vulva' really puts a cold clinical edge to the racy scenes, very off putting.

I promise to keep trying.

Gave up half way through, did not enjoy this at all. I kept dosing off when reading the droll. I'm not the sort of person to give up on something, but i really didnt care what happened at the end.
Sorry it just was not my cup of tea. :(

“A man so dominant as Daniel Stone— in height, in physical and sexual prowess, in financial and worldly muscle— could easily drown her. Sexually, yes: she wanted to submit to him, again and again and again. But that didn’t mean that she wanted to be his shadow in every way…” 1 likes
