What went wrong?

Despite its faults I really enjoyed the previous book 'Addicted' and I couldn't wait to start this one but now I'm left asking myself exactly what went wrong.
Despite my excitement I find I'm bored almost instantly, it's just not working for me and the only way I managed to get through it was by skimming.
I didn't like either Alek or Sara in this book and the book itself consists almost exclusively of arguing, more arguing, stupid misunderstandings, childish behaviour and sex.

Shattered by S Nelson
Addicted was the first book in this trilogy and Shattered is the 2nd book. What I can say is the titles are perfect for each book. Book one you become addicted like a drug addict, you want more after you have finished and book two lives up to its name – it really shatters you. This book really plays on your emotions and Sara is a tough cookie by standing up to Alek. You feel for Alek and his determination to show Sara she is wrong to think the worst. What you believe to be

What an amazing story.. the 2nd book is just as amazing as the first. book one ended with Sara fleeing from Alek. Why did he possess all of those pictures of her? What and how long has he known her and what was he hiding? Who was the man she gave her self to? He lied and Betrayed her.

Book two starts out with her still wondering with the thought of what Alek was really all about. She wasn't ready to talk to him. She wasn't ready to listen to his story,but not being with him made all the

I just tried to review it and somehow it got deleted.. so ghetto review time!

We find out the secrets, but the story development is still lacking. The H becomes unbearable which is shocking because I loved him in the first book. So unbearable that I start skimming chapters. I still gave it three stars because I believe my expectations of this book, and maybe the trilogy, just weren't met. It may be a "It's not you, it's me" kind of thing.

I'm not continuing on with this story. It just went

Horrible, absolute drivel

It was cringe worthy at times, and you wonder why she doesn't get a restraining order against him. Its totally unrealistic and makes women out to be crazy out of control lunatics.

I honestly don't know if I will be continuing to the last novel in this series. It just keeps getting worse. Nothing happens and when "something" finally does, it's honestly nothing. *_*

At the 69% mark when I was starting to think that we would, for the entirety of the novel, watch their day to day activities; Alek's "bombshell" was "dropped." Not much of a bomb but it beats adolescent arguments and boring sex.

They continue to be overly angry & emotional and I expected Alek's secret to be

Wow what the hell will happen next? Love that they are really falling for each other. And the love making is great but what a cliffhanger!

I'm missing something?

So with book things seems to get a little more juicier. I could be less frustrating if Alek and Sara didn't fight constantly. I felt I was left out about the second dairy characters lives. If the author is going to bring up their it I would liked if know how it ties into the story. Is there a spin off, or did I miss a book that ties to this series.

The story was really great it is keeping me wanting more

Better than the first, IMO. However, I'm still having a problem connecting to the characters in the book. I think it's because the author mainly focuses on nothing but the arguments and sex. The closest I came to feeling something was their interaction in the club where Alek didn't take himself so seriously and it was short lived.

Holy Moly!!!! Sandra has done it again. This book will knock your socks off. I love Sandra's style of writing and this book is HOT

Sara fell head over heels for Alec but a secret made her walk away. Can Alec get her to listen to what he has to say or will Sara be too stubborn to listen.

The second installment, continues to follow the growing relationship of Alek and Sara. They both have formed connection they cannot deny and so despite having so much baggage they try to make their relationship work.

They face a lot more struggles and events that test their want for one another, but through each fight they seem to make it to the other side knowing that what they have is so much more than their hurtful pasts.

Shattered is full of emotion and the journey it takes for Alek and Sara

Secrets secrets.....

As I thought I was done with these characters. I’m pulled back in by the love these two have for each other. She does a wonderful job pulling you back in from what you think is completely insane and makes you realize love and attraction can be completely overbearing.

I feel like this book is missing that needed spark. That deep connection between the two of the characters. That overwhelming part of them that needs the other and not just that. It is missing the why. Missing the pull I need to feel between to characters that claim they love the other.

This story has so much potential but I feel as though it is falling flat.

Although at times Sara seems way too dramatic for my liking and takes things way out of proportion (seriously she gets too pissed off at times when I just don’t see the need in it). I have to admit I am enjoying the storyline of it all. I see Alek about to beat some serious butt in book 3!

I wanted more for this book. While the author tried to add a few elements of surprise, they fell a little flat for me. It was also just a little too mushy for me, end for a romance novel.

Love at first sight?

Certainly our leading man Alek, is a little older Christian Grey. Sara is our own sweet, shy Anastasia. These characters are great for one another The supporting characters were excellent too!

Cliff hangers I hate them

I hate cliff hangers yet I get the need for them the to be continued the what happens next - I have no patience even though I have the next book downloaded.... Damn cliff hangers

I thought this one was just okay. I feel like Sara not allowing Alek to explain himself for so long was a bit ridiculous. She could have met him in a public area if she did not want to be alone with him. But all in all it was an okay read.

Of course this is a trilogy which always draws me in. There was a little more depth in this one so I’m on to the third and last book in the series - Wanted.

S. Nelson grew up with a love of reading and a very active imagination, never putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard until 2013.

Her passion to create was overwhelming, and within a few months she’d written her first novel, Stolen Fate. When she isn’t engrossed in creating one of the many stories rattling around inside her head, she loves to read and travel as much as she can.
