Thrilling 4.5 star read..

This is a dark, at times heartbreaking and skillfully written book…a story about Krystal a young woman from a deprived background who is left devastated after a despicable event and at her most vulnerable she encounters Samuel a clean living young rookie cop…

What a wonderful mixture of sorrow, loss, violence, respect and love ..the world is described in great detail with carefully observed sights, sounds, smells and the feelings they invoke..I was transported to another

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book.

This was a very fast paced book. It was short but kept you glued to the pages.

Krystal suffered an incident that no one should have to endure. Sam was a young, police rookie that was extremely goal oriented. He was part of the rescue mission that saved Krystal and it was love at first sight for him.

Sam stayed at her side during her recovery with his feelings growing everyday and so was hers. They were so in love and Sam was protecting her fr

Krystal endured a horrific experience, one that no one should have to go through, ever. Losing her friend Donna and the way it happened broke her. Sam was amazing in how he helped Krystal pick up the pieces. He took care of her and showed her she could get past everything. Hotly erotic with suspense, danger and intrigue, this book was gripping, and I couldn't put it down. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book. ...more

ARC of Shattered Krystal by Claire Lalique was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.



First off, this book has some of dark elements and some may even consider it disturbing, but I liked it. If you have issues with dark themes then this isn't the book for you. Some parts are definitely cringe worthy. Readers should enter this book with an open mind and mentally prepare yourself. This particular book isn't for the faint hearted. It's very raw and it takes you on a beautiful journey of he

A fast paced romance.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and loved the plot line. It is a very compelling story dealing with sensitive. Krystal is a young girl dealing with a horrendous situation and Samuel is the young man who rescues her. Together they forge forward to build a life together.

I just want to say that the development of the characters was great in this book. I am one of those readers that needs to have a deep connection with who I am reading about, and that is able to be made from page 1. The story is believable, though slightly predictable. However, I feel romances should always have a slight hint of predictability. I love that there is more to it than just the romance. There is plenty of suspense as well. A good read!

This was a very good debut novel. The characters and storyline were well developed. There was plenty of steam and other action as well. I definitely look forward to more from this author and recommend this as a good read!

I can not say enough how much I loved this book! Krystal survives something that should be just the stuff of nightmares, but somehow she comes out of it. Yes, she is psychically hurt and emotionally traumatized, but the depth of her character shows in spades throughout this book. Samuel Donahue didn't expect the change his life would take that fateful day he got to go with on an ATF joint mission to take down a biker gang called The Rattle Kings and in the process finds "the one" when Krystal is ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book. The story is very compelling, pulling you in and not letting you go. The story line was exciting her characters come to life. You find yourself wanting to know what will happen next. Read in the beginning how Krystal is a young dreamy eyed girl, to a broken terrified girl and then strong courageous girl. All to the thanks of one dominating man who will do anything to help her to be all that he knows she can be. I can't wait for the next book from this exciting ...more

So much emotion involved with Krystal and Samuel. A Life changing event brought these two together. He is hot and dominant, she is strong and with a beautiful heart. Together they are going to build a life filled with hope and so much chemistry. A must read hot romance

I was so excited when I finally started reading this book, and it started out quite well actually. The storyline was very promising and I was hopeful that this would be a great read. For a debut novel, it wasn't that bad after all, but there's room for improvement.

The story was very fast paced and there was no development of feelings because the characters were suddenly irrevocably in love from the first second they’d laid eyes on each other. It got even weirder when he began to have sexual thou

Advanced copy received by author in exchange for my honest review.

After reading the blurb of this book I was extremely excited to read this. Finally here was a book that took the dark, intense topics and forced the reader to be a part of it. Touching on subjects that most authors would consider untouchable here was someone who was willing to take you there, push you to your limits and beyond, but also bring you out the other side.
Unfortunately what started off as promising turned out to be a dis

Krystal is 17 when she endured a traumatic experience that no one should ever have to until she is rescued by the police. Samuel is a rookie officer at the scene who offers comfort to her and from that moment on their connection is unbreakable and he was by her side the entire time she was in the hospital. After she was physically healed he was unable to leave her in the poverty of her home so he brought her home with him.

Samuel knows that she is his soul mate and all he wants to do is protect h

I liked the story line itself. Krystal is dirt poor doesn't know any better from left to right. She did not let words get her down. She only has one friend and they decided to go to their childhood hideout. They both went through tramatic experiences before her friend gets killed. Krystal gets rescued and is handed off to a rookie police officer, Samuel (Blue). She can't remember what happened to her but knows that it was bad.
Samuel (Blue) is in the police academy and is a rookie with the police

This was my first read from Claire Lalique and I am so happy that I was able to R&R this book. I liked the dark and destructing elements that the author put in her book. Some authors dont like to have those in their book because its not to everyone's liking but was done very well. I would warn you that it maybe a trigger for you but a mild one.

I'm not sure why this book was banned from Amazon. I didn't find it as dark as others I have read. It was a well written book. Very interesting, I enjoyed reading it and the authors perspective on the subject. ...more
