4 "When Everything Changes" Stars! Volume 1 of Fractured is a short and sweet serial that can easily be read in one sitting. I got the feeling that this first part is really just the prologue (ie, setting the scene for what's to come). As all serials do, this one ends in a huge cliffhanger, so you must be prepared to read all 3 volumes in order to get the full story.

Shay and Cam have the perfect fairy tale relationship. They are high school sweethearts who marry young. Volume 1 commences shortly

Although this is a really short read I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Shay and Cam are newly married. They are just starting their new life as a married couple when they receive a phone call that changes everything.

This is a beautiful heartfelt start to their story. It really tugged at my heart. That ending has me wanting more asap. Great read.

Wow, I'm not sure even how to start this review. This is the story of newlyweds Cam and Shay. I fell in love with them from the start. They just returned from their honeymoon and are blissfully happy in their new home. Shay is an author who is currently struggling with her book. Cam is in the military and has just found out he is being deployed for a rescue mission. The anxiety you feel between these two as they count down the days until he leaves is palpable.

Shay Wilson has just gotten married to her high school sweetheart Cam, the former quarterback and life is going perfect, well at least for the first couple of hours since returning from their wedding/honeymoon. Then she receives the news that in a week Cam will be deployed back to Afghanistan on a rescue mission.

This novella is all centred around the week before he is deployed and lets you see inside their relationship and also into her world, as a writer with a deadline! I love these two as cha

This is a really short read but rip your heart out good. Shay and cam are newly weds completely in love with each other. They are getting use to married life along with the military life. Shay doesn't fit in with the other military wives so she isolates herself with her writing. While cam is in the military shay tries to make her career take off. She waits for cam to come back like he promises he will but does he? Can't wait for book 2.

I love this book. It's the perfect love story. Even though I cried throughout most of it. Lol. It's has everything I love in a book. I felt every emotion . I laughed and I cried so hard. One of my favorite emotions is laughter through tears. This love story is so heartwarming I melted into my chair. Shay and Cam are the epitome is young sweethearts. It ends on a cliffhanger that makes you want to jump straight into the next book. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Bu-bye, I'

Yes this is a great start to a new serial , I am hooked and was hooked from the start. I have no clue how anyone can handle being a military wife , parent or sibling , wow I have not had the experience and out of the few books I have read like this I have been heartbroken and full of anxiety for these couples and families. Such a brave choice on both parts. I really do have a great respect for it and will admit I would never be strong enough. Having said all that....

Madly in love they are determined to christen every place they can in their new home with hot, dirty delicious sex. There happiness is

Favorite Quotes:

“I mean I’m not a troll but I certainly wasn’t head cheerleader material.”

“Chrissy has curly blonde hair and is pregnant, like she is about to lay down and push it out pregnant.”

“He slowly backs away from me like I’m a rabid animal and I hear the TV turn on once more.”

My Review:

This novella reads like a personal diary or a letter from a friend. It is written in a casual and relaxed manner in common vernacular, and without pretense. I found it refreshing and a bit perplexing. Refr

Well the title of this book is what I will tell you my heart feels like! This is my first book I've read from Alexis Noelle and I truely enjoyed it. I had no idea what this story was about and was very surprised and pleased as I read. I haven't read many books about this subject so it was very intriguing and emotional for me. Alexis writes in a way to draw you in and feel like you can very well relate to these characters.

3. 5 Stars!

Fractured is my first book from Alexis Noelle. I enjoyed her carefree style of writing. Say it like it is. It was refreshing
This is going to be a short volume series. I happen to be a huge fan of them. They are quick reads. They give you just enough of a taste and leave you wanting more. I did find this one a tad too short. I think a few more chapters would have helped it greatly. I wanted more depth and character development. Just as I was getting into the characters it ended.

My only complaints about this book are number 1 that it was too short and number 2 that I unfortunately knew how it was going to end early in the book.

Cameron and Shay Wilson are high school sweethearts who also happen to be newlyweds. Cameron is in the military while Shay is a writer who works from home. Though they just returned from their honeymoon, Cameron gets called back to go rescue some fellow soldiers.

This story takes place the week before he departs and is full of just enough history

This is a very short introductory novel to a brand new series and although its a quick read it sets us up nicely for rest of the series. In fact the ending has us begging for more.

This is my first read from Alexis Noelle and I was not left disappointed but was certainly left wanting more. I knew in advance the nature of this series, that being that they are small volumes due to be released in quite quick succession but I actually thought that half of it was missing as I just wasn't ready for it to end.

This is a quick read. You see the tight bond and love Shay and Cam have for one another. Shay and Cam were high school sweetheart and newlyweds. Shay is a writer and Cam is very supportive of her. Cam is in the Army and has to leave on assignments with little notice. Shay is never thrilled when he has to leave as with any military wife when their husband has to leave the biggest fear is will they return but Cam always does and promises t

Ugh, I knew... I just knew from the blurb that this was one that was going to hurt my heart. And by the time I was two chapters in, I was already mentally steeling myself....

All it takes is one moment to shatter everything around you, like so much glass. For Shay, who has it all - an adoring husband, a beautiful home, a successful career - that moment may be enough to fracture her forever...

This was a quick read, but by no means easy. I figured out fairly quickly what was coming, in general term

I love serials. Short, sweet, sexy and cliffhangers. I love them. This is the story of Shay and Cam. High school sweethearts who get married, come home from their honeymoon and then get news that Cam is being deployed in one week. She is a writer and Cam is extremely supportive. Although she is supportive of his military career, she doesn’t fit in well with the other families in his unit. They try to pack as much time together into his last week and it's funny, sweet and hot. He is gone
