Adalyn Weaver has lost her parents and the will to live really. She wants nothing more than to join her family. She even tried once to join them but then Luca shows up. He helps her heal, though there is some serious stuff going on that she knows nothing about. This books builds slowly, but that's actually a good thing because we actually get to know the characters and by the time the really good stuff kicks in we can just enjoy the ride.

Adalyn to me, doesn't start out as a very strong characte

Within the first three chapters I was hooked!

Adalyn has lost her parents and must now learn how to live again without them. She has no friends and lives with her aunt Jesse. In walks Lucas, the new boy in school and little by little Adalyn with the help of Lucas begins to live her life. However, there are secrets that will soon surface that will rock Adalyn's foundation.

I feel that the plot is strong and the characters are well developed and likable. Another thing I loved was that though I had a

I received this as an arc for an honest review and it's a must read story. I can't wait to read what's next. This is a five star read(even though it does have some editing problems, it's still 5 star for me) it has some major twists that I didn't expect at all. I honestly didn't read the blurb or what kind of book it was and I'm glad I didn't because it added to the surprise. I never wanted to put it down and always had to know more. It does end with a cliffhanger that makes you scream for more ...more

Faithfully Shattered is the first novel in the Shattered series by Nicole Minuck. I went into this book unaware of what to expect since this is a new author to me. She surprised me with crazy twists and turns throughout. I often found myself on the edge of my seat and eager for the next scene.

Adalyn desperately needs a friend, whether she wants to admit it or not. Luca swoops in at the perfect moment. They are sweet and loyal to one another. I enjoyed experiencing their friendship blossom into m

The story itself is YA which I enjoyed a lot, the style and tone, fit very well within the genre’s settings and I felt right there, dragged along, kicking and screaming at the kindle for these characters are put through the mill, emotionally and physically.

Adalyn – Addy our MC involved in a terrible accident that takes her parents lives. For anyone, an accident is going to be traumatic, but this hits us as readers in all the right places. Adalyn is broken, inside and out and the journey she now

There are so many layers and emotions in this story and it pulls you in from the moment you start reading. Immediately we are so connected to Jess and Addy due to the tragedy that they have endured, and the emotions are running thick. Then we see Luca and we see a shift. Luca seems to be placed in her life at the absolute perfect time. He doesn't really know Any so he is her fresh start and saving grace. Luca is the best thing that ever happened to Addy until he wasn't. There are so many layers ...more

Oh God I loved this book so much!! From the beginning I knew it would be a good book like those who catch you and you can not stop reading. I started reading and I fell in love with Luca, I knew he was going to be the light in Adalyn's life and he was. I loved them as a couple from the beginning they got together and they had confidence. I kept reading and every time I liked more how they where as a couple but as in every love story there is always someone who is jealous of that beautiful couple ...more

This is this Authors first book and I was really looking forward to it. After I read the description my mind was running rampant on what could possibly happen and what I got was so much more than what I was expecting.

Adalyn broke my heart from the start. But as the book went on, her strength and determination really showed.

Luca was a mystery. I really wish we had gotten into his head to know what he was thinking but by the end of the book we understood all his secrets. He was so sweet and determ

Holy Heck this was one heck of a book. I absolutely loved it and I can't wait for book 2.
Nicole you are an amazing writer. You have a way of pulling the reader in and making them feel and experience everything the characters are feeling.

⚠ Warning!!!!! Cliffanger!!!

Addy lost her parents in a horrible accident. She returns to school after a long break. During her first day she meets Luca. They automatically hit it off and become very close.

Faithfully Shattered is a book that will make you want more Luca. He is the perfect mysterious and all around bad boy that readers always fall for. Since the beginning I questioned his intentions, but as always I quickly fell for the way he was there for Adalyn and the way he would protect her. Luca just knows how to warm your heart.

Faithfully Shattered was very well written and I liked the voice of Adalyn. She had been through so much heartache that she was just suffering. It was so sad but I

This was a slow burner for me, it took awhile for me to get into the story, from about 50% I started to enjoy it and now look forward to finding out the rest of the story in the next instalment. Because of the slow start it's a modest 3 stars

This book grabs you, pulls you in hard, and won't let go. If you love Twilight, this is the series for you. Action, drama, tender YA love, and a great plot keep you flipping until the very end.

I read this book in one day and woke up at 130 on Mother's Day to finish it before the kids got up. This writer will not disappoint. She is now on my Amazon follow list and I intend to just that... follow her and her stories all the way to top.

Well done. Five stars plus...

I did find that the writing style was not what I was used to and that made it a tad difficult at times. However, the story the story was pretty good and I enjoyed it. I would suggest it for Young Adult/ Teenagers as well. I think the audience would be able to relate very well to the main character.

This is the first book I've read from Nicole Minuck. I cannot wait to read the other books in the series.

This is a PNR that follows Lycans and Humans through a journey of acceptance, interracial conflict and budding romance.

Here is my warning. I set down to read a few chapters of this book after work to unwind. 15+ chapters in my stomach was growling and all the work emails I was going to send that night did not get done.

This book is like you are taking a sweet romantic ride through the tunnel of love snuggled with your sweetheart and then the doors open and you are taking the plunge of death. It had me mind racing in circles. It was an awesome read that you NEED TO READ.
