Can Nick get anymore perfect - I mean, Katie has a 10 years daughter who is rightfully so, the love of her life and she doesn't trust anyone, let alone a guy, but that doesn't faze Nick at all. Instead he keeps putting everything he has and everything he is on the line, time and time again showing Katie that he's the man for her.

An unexpected College pregnancy has made Katie wary of everything - her whole life, much to her friends dismay, revolves around her daughter Abbi and her job at the Anim

4.5 stars!!

After reading Scattered Pieces, I couldn't wait for this book to read about Nick and Katie. Katie is a single mom to 10 yr old Abbi, who is so adorable. Katie was dumped when she was pregnant with Abbi by a complete moron. She finished college with the help of her parents, but she always made sure no matter what, Abbi was her top priority. Nick is home for a few weeks before he goes back for his last tour in the Marines. He and Katie have been friends for the past 6 months, but there

I thought I loved Grant and Summer!!! And then I met Nick and Katie! Ok I still love Grant and Summer but you know what I mean. I'm a sucker for a military romance, always have been! And this do NOT disappoint! I loved Katie from the moment Summer got Duke from her in Scattered Pieces and was so excited to read her story! And Nick, sexy Nick!!! They are perfect for each other, until life throws a curveball. Or so Nick thinks! And Nick's a man so eventually we have to forgive him but still. He's ...more

This is the first book by Allie Able that I've read ~ I absolutely loved it!
Do not start this book unless you have time to read the whole book because you won't be able to put it down.
The two main characters, along with the supporting characters, are well written and believable.
Katie, is a single mom to a 10 year old girl whom she idolizes. She's feisty and works as a veterinarian. Nick is a hot, alpha-marine, who has completely fallen for Katie. When the two get together the pages heat up and

Damaged Pieces

A great, sweet, tearful, and overall wonderful sequel to Scattered Pieces. Katie was burned by a man in her past and left alone e to raise her daughter alone. She lacked trust in faith in men in general. Nick, a Marine, always thought he would be in the military longer, but discovered more awaited him in his hometown.
I am drawn to characters like Katie, I'm not sure why, maybe it has to do with showing that single mothers can be strong, make it through basically anything, and find

Damaged Pieces was not what I expected. This was a nicely told fast paced love story about Katie and Nick. It followed their path from friends to lovers. The writing was completely believable as were the characters. Damaged Pieces is a wonderful story that will leave you feeling glad that you took Katie and Nick's journey into lover.

I received and ARC for an honest opinion.
This book had my drawn in with the instant connection between Nick and Katie. I loved how Nick was a jump right in and go until he wasn't. I wanted to reach into the book and smack him upside the head. I started to cry in this book when it got to the intense bit.
I loved the first Cape Isle Book and this book was even better. I can't wait for more.

This book follows the story od Katie and Nick. Katie is a single mother of a ten-year-old girl. She has her heart broken from her past relationship and she promised herself that she will protect her and her daughters heart from any man that comes to her, until Nick comes.
Nick is a marine and such a nice guy and really sexy. He is really attracted to Katie and now that they have develop some kind of relationship he is determined to get out of the marines and come back to the love of his life.

This was such an awesome read but it was hard to get through at time. Allie portrayed every character exactly right. You have Katie who is a single mom who doesn't date because she doesn't want men in and out of her daughter's life and because she is afraid of getting hurt again. You have Nick who is loveable but then he gets hurt and he is dealing with anger, denial and later acceptance. You see all the emotions being played out as if these were real people. I won't lie and say that Nick morphe ...more

Let me start off by saying that the Dedication of this book was one of the most honest dedications I have read. Loved it!

This was a good second book in this series. I did enjoy it. This story begins along the same lines as Ms. Able’s Scattered Pieces. A really terrible thing happens to our heroine, Katie. However, she picks herself up, dusts off, and carries on. While the idea is similar to the first, this story line is entirely different.

Again, let me reiterate, that I did like reading this bo

I Had to read this after reading how awesome Scattered Pieces was, I was not disappointed. Allie Able sure knows how to break your heart!!

Wow, this book was so heartbreakingly beautiful, I loved Katie and Nick..

Nick he loved Katie so deeply, that it broke my heart, watching him come to his decision, He wanted to protect Katie and Abbi, He wanted them to half more than what he came home as, And for that i loved him even more, even if it was stupid!!

She did it again... She ripped through my heart strings, punched me in the gut, and Shedded me of tears. This woman can write a love story, no doubt about that. Her characters have amazing stories that scream to be told. They're stories of loss and heartbreak, abuse and friendship, they are everything a romance should be. When I found out this was going to be a military romance, I was scared but also happy. Military romances scare me, because they always pack a punch and never want to finish the ...more

I finished this book in less than 24 hours. It sucked me in from the very first page and took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I laughed, I cried several times, I was frustrated, and I swooned. I loved seeing Nick and Katie's feelings for each other develop during the time they spent together before he had to leave to go overseas. It was heartbreaking to see Nick struggle so badly with what happened to him when he was in Iraq and pushing everyone away. He was really frustrating at times ...more

What a wonderful heartwarming read this stand-a-lone novel is. We all have heard stories about the trails, heartache, change, anger, abandonment our soldiers face when they return from overseas. Generation after generation of soldiers. Few writers are able to capture that and bring it together so tastefully with the story of a woman who has also dealing with her own version of hell and pain that she is also recovering. Broken promises. Broken hearts. Trust destroyed. A touching story of an awake ...more

This was the first book that I read by Allie Able and I absolutely loved it. She did a really good job at telling the story at how military soldier's lives are when they lives are when they are home and when they leave to go overseas. But when a soldier is injured its a totally different story. They don't know how to react because they feel lost and confused as to what has happened.

I feel that Allie Able did a wonderful job throughout this whole book. She wrote a wonderful love story and I would

I adored book one in this series, so much so, Allie will forever be an instant one click for me. But book 2? Whole different level of amazing.

Katie and Nick had a difficult story to tell, both were scarred by life, Nick also scarred by war.
I needed them to find thier happy. I was hooked with every single word, hanging on to everything because they NEEDED to find thier happy.

Holy cow!!!!!!!!! What a fantastic book. It was well written with a good plot, conflict, description of characters, and the flow of the story was exceptional. The story is written in such a way that the reader feels like they are right there with the main characters. :-) copyright of night owl romance
My second read by this author. This was a sweet love story with little to no angst. Although the story was predictable, sometimes you just need a lighthearted feel good read. This delivered exactly that.
