Audiobook review. I don't do a lot of romantic suspense but books like this make me feel like I'm totally missing out! I was enthralled by the writing, plot, and characterization. Sarah and Jax are complete opposites on the surface but are a lot more alike once you see into their depths. I liked the evolution of their relationship and the plot devices that helped them transition in growth and development. The secondary characters added value and context to the story. They were constructed ...more

Much more than romantic suspense, this is a romantic thriller and I loved every word!

This book took me on a wild ride!

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

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.

4-4.5 stars – Romantic Suspense Thriller

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!

If you are looking for a brilliant and steamy romantic suspense, check out Shattered.

Review posted on Got Fiction?

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

An enjoyable re-read, Sarah is a tough agent for Lost, finding out her father was a serial killer as a teen, changed the course of her life, he trained her to be a hunter, but he didn’t realise he was teaching her skills to ensure she’s very good at catching those like him – she often sees things that the cops miss. Sarah’s dad may be a brutal serial killer, but the weird thing is that I didn’t despise him.

Jax Fontaine rules his town, and his feet aren’t always on the right side of the law, but
The third book in the LOST series by Cynthia Eden.

4.5 stars!

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.

A dark deeply emotional story of love against all the odds with a mind fucking suspenseful twist.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic 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

By far the best book in this series. I really enjoyed the story between Jax and Sarah. Great suspense that kept me up reading past midnight. This book the romance felt right up there with the suspense. I've said previously that Cynthia Eden does a great job on the suspense part, well this time I enjoyed the romance just as well.
5 stars!! Loved Jax! Loved this couple <3
I have loved every book in Cynthia Eden's LOST Series so far and Shattered was no exception. After meeting Jax in Twisted I couldn't wait to get my hands on his book and he has easily become my favorite hero in this series.

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

Sarah suffers ghosts and monsters from the past while doing her work at LOST, and those dark memories becomes a bond with Jax.
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 so looking forward to reading this book but somehow for me it didn't quite live up to the rest of the series or my expectations. However I'm still looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Ive read the other books to this series and I freakin love it. This one was suspenseful and threw me off at times. Jax was hot and how he wouldn't give up on Sarah too cute!. Loved it!!

This is the third book in the series. While I do think this can be read as a standalone, I have read the previous two and enjoyed them, and I think it does make the characters more meaningful, so I highly suggest reading this series in order. As I have said before Cynthia Eden’s books are like crack for me. They are addictive, with a quick short high, that doesn’t last long, and leaves you scrambling for the next one, often with very little memory of that previous high. Fortunately for us ...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
I really enjoyed this book, especially the serial killer aspect. For some sick reason, I kinda liked Sarah's dad, eventhough he was a brutal serial killer. The love he had for his daughter really fascinated me.

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

Jax was actually PERFECT but Sarah got on my tits near the end. (view spoiler)

I did really love the romance in this but I hated the suspense plot. I honestly thought it was ridiculous.

When I heard that Jax and Sarah’s story was to be the next book in the series I could not wait to get a copy. (I was fortunate to receive a complimentary copy courtesy of Edelweiss). I love stories where the hero is portrayed as a bad boy. There is just something about them that I find irresistible.

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.
