2.5 Stars

Shattered by Ann Conway takes place in the same world as her previous novel, Hollow, but can easily be read as a stand-alone novel. I have to say that when I first started this novel, I hated Mia. She was so into appearances and judgmental it made me sick. After that initial impression she started being more likable and less critical but I still shook my head at so many of her actions. She was appallingly unprofessional in so many ways that she had no business being an intern at a Menta

Thanks Netgalley for a free book in exchange for a review.

The promise of this book was exciting but for me it did not live up to its expectations. Mia was an extremely unlikable main character. As an intern she was just unfriendly and the things she said were just idiotic. Made me feel like she was a high schooler, and not a second year grad. I felt her first attempts at making nice were just snobby, and rude. When she met Flynn it just felt wrong, like they were at a mall meeting and not a nut

I couldn't finish this book. I'm all for suspension of disbelief, but there's no way that this was even close to plausible. The very first time Flynn and Mia were seen in a romantic/intimate encounter, Mia would have been reprimanded if not fired. There are cameras everywhere, and Johnson even saw them once. I only got to about 1/4 of the way through before I just couldn't do it anymore. I hate to leave a book unfinished, but this one just wasn't happening for me. The first book, HollowHollow, w ...more

My Thoughts:

Shattered is the first book that I've read by Ava Conway, and a book unlike any other. It was a fairly quick read and had my attention from the very first page on. While it was the second book in the Perfect Little Pieces Series, it can be read as a standalone.

Shattered is the story of young and ambitious college student, Mia Horton. She is excited to begin her new internship at Newton Heights Medical Institution. All of her hard work in school has finally lead to this moment, and s

My Rating: 2.5/5

Shattered was a good New Adult romance and, while it didn't meet my every expectation, it was a enjoyable read. It was emotional, with sweet romance, and I liked it overall.

Mia was a little iffy for me. She didn't make the best first impression. She came off as a condescending snob and it took a while for that impression to be revised. I especially didn't like the almost superior way she thought of the patients at first. And, this might seem like a small thing, but she was consta

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

After reading the blurb for Shattered by Ava Conway, I could not wait to read the book. It carried the forbidden love trope I'm so fond of and I found the whole setting for the book intriguing. I won't rehash what the book is about because the blurb is pretty accurate in that regard, but I will say that Mia (the h) was an unexpected surprise. Going into this book I believed that Flynn (the H) was going to be the only one with emotional baggage but I

Really enjoyed this book. Mia gets an intern position in a long term care facility. Because mental illness runs in her family and affected her best friend, she feels like this is the perfect place for her. Unfortunately she can't seem to distance herself emotionally from the patients. Well, one patient in particular, Flynn McKenna. Flynn and Nesto are the two patients that she is asked to observe and write her recommendations on. Mia spends most of her time getting to know Flynn and see's what a ...more

I was given an ARC for an honest review!

I'm in love with Flynn, I really am. This is the guy I would love to meet if he existed. Well, since he doesn't I can dream, can I?
Okay, I have to say this book had me hooked from the beginning to the end. I was waiting with my stomach tied up in knots to know more about this guy and what will happened to both of them. I like surprises in a book and I like it when the author makes it hard for me to see what will happen next, which she did. All through the

Shattered is book 2 in the Perfect Little Pieces series. Although part of a series, Shattered could be read as a stand-alone. Shattered is a story of forbidden love. Mia Horton is an intern at Newton Heights Mental Hospital. Flynn McKenna is a long-term care patient. When we first meet Mia, she believes the internship is what she has been striving for and that her life is fine as it is. Mia spends more and more time with Flynn as an assigned patient.

The story is of a young girl who learns the hard way how to let go her way of thinking and grows up. Mia has a lot of preconceived notions of how life is supposed to be. She doesn't want to upset her Mother by telling her what's going on in her life. She tries to handle everything on her own. She eventually learns that once you start thinking of others and not yourself that life may not be comfortable but it is rewarding.

Ava does a great job getting into the head of young girl and makes you jum

This is a really hard series to read. The stories are so heartbreaking and heavy that it takes time to get through it but it's so very much worth it. This is a well written book, the characters are so vivid that you truly feel their pain as well as their joy. It's totally worth the read but be prepared to feel like you've been wrung through the wringer as only an amazing book can do to you!

This was a very interesting book for a psychology major. I liked the relationships between the characters and Johnson and Everett made me so angry I wanted scream and throw my iPad to the wall. But definitely very interesting book and did enjoy reading it.

I could not get into this book at all. I could not sympathize with the character of Mia at all and found myself getting annoyed by her. I couldn't get past chapter 5.

At fourteen, Ava snuck her first romance novel into bed and read it by flashlight. There she met her first “book boyfriend” and has been hooked on reading ever since. She often prefers book-boyfriends to the real thing, and believes that a gooey, fudge brownie is a little piece of heaven on earth. When she’s not writing, she’s stumbling through her Zumba class (have to work off those brownies some ...more
