Often times, you read a book or a series and, at the end, you feel there is something that feels undone. That moment you endured along with the characters. That moment that changes everything. That moment that has you long for a sense of closure of something that you felt was the most pivotal part of a story; so pivotal that without it, the story would cease to exist. Some authors tend to deny us the answers to our questions and the information to ease the aches we still carry; those moments nec ...more

“Hope: The biggest four-letter word in the English language. It’s bigger than despair. Bigger than resentment. Bigger than scepticism. Four letters that, when combined, can hold a broken heart together for eighteen years.”

A devoted fan of the Shattered Hearts series since its very beginning, I have to admit that I have always been a little anxious about finally getting to hear Abby’s story, knowing that its very premise would have the power to annihilate me emotionally. The tale of a

Wow… Where do I begin? This has been such a beautiful, emotional story and I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved Chasing Abby. I have loved all the books in the Shattered Hearts series. I loved the beginning of this series with Forever Ours, the tender love story of Chris and Claire; a story of love, hope, loss, and sacrifices. This beautiful series continues in Relentless, Pieces of You, and Bring Me home. And as I read each book, I fell more in love with the storyline and the characters.

I have been waiting for Chasing Abby for a year. Waiting to see if that happily ever after for Claire, Chris and Abby would come. It has been a long year. I imagined every single scenario. The how, when, where of the parents ( Chris and Claire ) and their firstborn ( Abby ) 1st meeting. I have stalked *coughs* followed Cassia's status and wait. wait. And the Wait was over last night night when i got my ARC. I started rea

I would give this book a 10 star rating if I could. Cassia had taken my heart, ripped it to pieces and then put it all back together again. There are a few things you must know upfront. #1. This is not a stand alone book. YOU MUST READ the series in order to truly appreciate this story to it's fullest. #2. This book gave me the BIGGEST UGLY CRY OF MY CAREER!!

Now REALLY this is the FIRST time I've wanted to give 0 stars as my rating. And trust me that's a novelty as I basically discriminate while selecting my genres, I have my preferances and I rarely stray from those. So knowing Shattered Hearts so far I was expecting a huge romance, some (or more) twists and a happy ending.

So even though Abby succeeded in being happy with both of her families my heart is just too broken over Caleb to be happy for her. Of course I'm glad she finally has her both fa

This entire series, from page 1, book 1, pulled me in and didn't let still hasn't let go!!! Thus why I'm anxiously awaiting the release of not only Chasing Abby but also Forever Ours. I read book 1, 2, 3, & 3.5 in a matter of 3 days! I couldn't put it down! I laughed, and I cried, and I loved the characters through it all! Each one pulled me in and made me love them!

I wish I could erase what happened around 80%. It's no secret that I'm a sucker for happy endings and this story has one, but not the exact one I would have liked... (view spoiler)
When I read what happened, I couldn't believe it, I immediately thought it was unnecessary drama. I was so sad. But the epilogue and Caleb's lyrics made me changed my mind.

This story got me hooked from the begging. The characters had a very long journey to get to their HEA, but every tear they shed was all worth it.
Every shattered heart had to endure more than its fair share of pain and sorrow to get what they most desired.

I think this is one of the most complete stories I have read so far. All questions were answered there were no loose ends. I fell in love with each character, just as I got to hate them a little bit sometimes.

Beautiful and heartfelt. A must-read for fans of the Shattered Hearts series.

I’ll be honest. I wasn’t sure if I needed to read this book. I loved the Shattered Hearts series deeply. I shed tears with those characters. Loved those characters. Felt their pain, their heartache, their love and their loss. I just wasn’t convinced I need another book. I know some of you feel the same. But I’m here to convince you to read it. Because if you’ve loved Chris and Claire’s story, this book—Abby’s story—is a

(even though I pre-ordered and got it on release day as well)

I went into this story knowing it would be an emotional ride. All of Cassia’s previous books in the Shattered Hearts series are, but what I didn’t expect was just how emotional of a ride it would be.

If you’ve read the rest of the series, or even just the first book, you know who Abby is and what she means to the Knight family, so I’m not going to rehash that here. What I will say is t

Spoiler alert in this review: This book was pretty good until it got to the climax and then everything changed. I really like the series and this last volume seemed like it was going to be the perfect conclusion until the story took an unrealistic turn that kind of just ruined the book. We get this is a shattered heart series but the author took the theme too far. I wish someone could explain the ending to me. How are we supposed to believe that a healthy 19 year old would think about death by p ...more

Any book that can suck me in and make me sob yes sob deserves 5 stars. This is the final installment in the Shattered Hearts series, and what a way to end. My heart was captured by Caleb from the minute he is introduced. This amazing person will rest in my heart for a very long time.
This is a must read. Highly recommend!!!!

Chasing Abby

First let me say I LOVE this series. Chasing Abby was big surprise to me. I loved it. I laughed and I cried. I couldn't believe you did what you did to Caleb but in the end it was perfect. I highly recommend this book/series to everyone who loves a great book with true meaning. I do hope we get more in the future.
I have my fingers crossed for an Abigail book finding her birth parents... Please let that be it.

*I received an ARC from the author or publisher in exchange for an honest review.*

I'm wiping tears from my eyes as I type this. This story was heart-breaking, emotional, and beautiful. I didn't see what happened coming. Make sure you have a box of Kleenex ready before reading this.


Chasing Abby is a beautifully written story. It did a number on my heart though. My heart raced with anticipation during some scenes, it felt full of happiness, and then it was ripped apart piece by piece.

Well, that was quite an emotional read. As far as emotions are concerned it was 5-stars. I guess the reason I didn't give it an overall 5-stars was because I found the time reference confusing, I think I need to revisit and figure out if it is referring to when Abby discovers who her parents are, her 18th bday or the other major event. Maybe that is my fault as I was too eager to learn how this ends, but I tend to get frustrated when there is time jumping that isn't very clear or requires the re ...more

I fell in love with Chris and Claire since the first book and even read the whole series twice, despite tons of unread books waiting for me. Their journey wasn't an easy one, and I can't say they found their happily ever after, though they were at such a good place in the last book.
Why? Because there was a little girl out there that would always hold their hearts. So to say I've been eagerly waiting for this book was an understatement. Just like Chris and Claire, I needed this closure too.

You know when you've read a damn good book. Your heart and emotions are all over the place and Abby Chris and Claire's story was no exception.
On Abby's 18th birthday she finally finds out who her biological parents are. With her boyfriend Caleb's help she tracks them down and this is where both Abby and my heart strings were pulled. Abbie is pretty sick she has a poorly heart that will eventually give out and she will one day need a transplant. But that doesn't hold her back from trying to live

I picked up the Shattered Hearts series and immediately took a shine to Chris Knight. I loved his story with Claire and I couldn't help feeling that I wanted more. I wanted to see how Abby grew up and I wanted to see if she ever did get to find out about her birth parents. This story delivered on that and so much more.

Cassia Leo did such an amazing job with this series. You felt for all these characters! I was on the edge of my seat when Abby went to get that safe deposit box and when she found

Why did I even read this one?? Why?? My heart is basically in pieces. Yes it was a sort of happy ending but it broke my poor heart. I can't seem to get over my stupid heart break. I see why everyone was saying this was the best book in the series cuz believe me it is. Despite my aching heart. I picked up this book for the sole reason of seeing older Chris and Claire and their family antics. At least I got that. It shouldn't have happened. Everyone was sup

Emotional, heartbreaking & beautifully written story.

In my honest opinion, Chasing Abby is Cassia Leo’s BEST work so far. She nailed it. She delivered and gave the fans of this series more than what is expected. She did it again and did it sooooooooooo freakin good. I don’t even know here to begin. There’s so many beautiful and heartbreaking scenes in this book that I can’t even fathom how she was able to write those scenes coz it will break you. It

Wow what a heart breaking but truly wonderful story; when Abby finally meets her birth parents Chris and Claire, we all thought it would be emotional, and it was, but you made it feel like we were in the same room experiencing all the emotions you knew Abby would be feeling.

Obviously we were going to get more of Chris and Claire, and you didn't disappoint. We also got to meet Jimi, Chris Jr and Ryder, who were all great and very grounded kids. Jimi and rightly so, was apprehensive

To say I was looking forward to reading Chasing Abby is a HUGE understatement. From the moment Cassia announced she was writing it, I have been waiting (not so patiently) to see where Abby’s life had taken her and to find out whether or not Abby, Claire and Chris would finally be reunited. Even now, 5 days post Chasing Abby, my emotions are overwhelmed with all this story made me feel.

This may be one of the hardest reviews I have to write. I don’t want to not do this book any justice at all. It is my favorite book In the Shattered Hearts Series. The Author Cassia Leo has out done herself with Chasing Abby.
In the beginning of the book we Meet Abby as a Seventeen year old, She has a boyfriend named Caleb. They are also best friends Caleb knows Abby better than anyone, So it’s only natural for them to go off to collage together and live together. Right? Well Abby’s Parents Brai
