Shattered was darker than the previous books in the LOST series. It was an intense and emotional read mixing intrigue, action and a heart-pounding suspense. A story that demands the pages be turned!
The attraction and love between Sarah and Jax was heart melting. They were perfect together, so alike.
Sarah was one of those heroines I absolutely like. Such a strong one! Her childhood was a horror few know of and we learn every horrific details of it. And because of ...more

Excellent written, interesting suspense.
Likable MCs, but I imagined the h to be a bit different and I missed true connection between her and Jax.
Nevertheless an amazing book!
“Do you know what I saw when I looked in your eyes?” he whispered into her ear.
Sarah shook her head.
“You were hurting. Trying to hide your pain, but I could still see it. I looked at you and thought—I never want her to hurt again.”
Another fantastic RS from Cynthia Eden. This series just continues in strength and awesomeness.
I have been waiting for Sarah and Jax’s book since the previous book, and it surpassed even my high expectations.
Sarah is the daughter of the serial killer Murphy the...more
A solid romantic suspense thriller with an uber-creepy serial killer villain and an awesome, swoonalicious, protective, besotted bad boy hero! Definitely the best of the series, so far. And that ending? Now I'm anxiously awaiting the next book!
Bad boy, Jax goes head to head with Sarah, the profiler. When they met, they had a connection, now Jax wants to see where it will lead. He hires the Lost team and specifically Sarah to help uncover his past.
Sarah has always been a unique character, growing up with a love of a father who happened to be a serial killer. Her past gives her unique insight into the minds of others. She is reluctant to let anyone in ...more

In this third installation of Cynthia Eden’s LOST series, we see it pick up right where there last book Twisted left off. The LOST team is still in New Orleans, and while they’re wrapping everything up from the previous case, one of their own is targeted.
Sarah Jacobs is the daughter of one of the most famous serial killers of all time, and she’d never realized that her entire childhood, he’d been grooming her into someone like him. But once she realized ...more

I love this better than the first one. We have Sarah our h, whose past is a nightmare. Her dad is serial killer and taught her to hunt and kill. To be just like him but of course, she's not. She turned it into something good. She became a profiler to catch the bad guys instead. I have deep respect for Sarah and she's a very likeable heroine. As for Jax our H *swoon* when he met Sarah, for him it was like two halves of a whole finally connecting. Very protective and sweet towards her. ...more
A dark deeply emotional story of love against all the odds with a mind fucking suspenseful twist.
Evil has so many faces. That’s why you can’t ever trust what you see.
WOW WOW WOW.... my head is spinning and my heart is rejoicing. Shattered is a brilliantly constructed romantic thriller that I devoured in a single sitting.
I was quite weary of reading this book after I read the blurb. I considered it to be some sort of enemies to lovers romance in which the detective fell in love ...more
Jax and Sarah met in Twisted when the LOST team was working on a case in New Orleans and now that that case is wrapped up Jax approaches Sarah about her team solving a case for him. That case quickly gets swept to the side, however, when Sarah gets attacked and a girl goes ...more
Jax is trying to find out his past, and LOST seems to be his best bet at this time. That Sarah is his in with the group is just a perk, until he encounters her in a dangerous situation, and from there it's full speed ahead.
Contemporary romance, action, suspense and smutty fluff in a great combo, just like you know Cynthia Eden can deliver. Loved it!
I was given a free ...more
Oh Man, I love Cynthia Eden. Shattered is book three in the LOST series it picks up right after the events of Twisted. Like the previous two books this is a dark romantic suspense, and much like Beware of Me (from the Dark Obsessions series) it centers on a criminal anti-hero and heroine with a tortured past. Like with most of Cynthia Eden’s recent books it is not for the squeamish; bad things happen, things that can make us uncomfortable but the book has more than that in it and it ...more
I liked both the hero and the heroine, but I had a hard time picturing Sarah as a profiler. Some of her actions and behavior just made it a bit unbelievable to me. I guess I watched too many episodes of criminal minds ;)
The suspence part of the story was very good and eventhough I figured ...more
The story picked up from where Twisted ended. Based on the previous installments, it was evident that Sarah’s past was messed up, but I was not aware as to the extent until I read this installment. ...more
