Shelby

Having faith in human beings isn't something I grant easily.

My childhood was filled with yelling, anger, and beatings so bad I feared I would die. My Papa was my savior. He saved me from the beatings and hate, filling my life with love and happiness. He made sure I got the best education possible, and I was able to follow in his foot steps.

Our childhood has a way of defining us as adults for better or worse. When your nightmares revolve around your formative years how can you find a way to move on, to heal, to thrive? Even with all the love and support in the world sometimes you still find yourself slowly descending into your own personal hell.

Shelby was given verbal abuse instead of food, pain instead of encouragement, scars instead of love. When she finally finds success, love, and a home all it takes is a familiar face to threa

SHULER DELIEVERS ANOTHER HIT!!!
This author has talent so freaking awesome it literally takes my breath away. She never ceases to amaze me. A whirlwind, rollercoaster of emotions that will keep your attention till the last word. Heart pounding, pulse racing, adrenaline pumping, nailbiting read that grabs you from the first page. When she weaves a world around you, you have no choice but to follow. And follow you will. I believe Shuler embeds pieces of herself woven throughout the entire read. A s

What a incredible story. The author has once again created a story that grabs you and refuses to let go. The characters are relatable and realistic. They're lovable, or despicable, depending on the character. The story is so tense that at times I was emotionally confused. I wasn't sure which emotion I was supposed to be feeling. I bounced from once feeling to the next so quickly reading this one that I lost track of what I was feeling a time or two... maybe three. I truly can not wait to see wha ...more

This is the 5th book in this phenomenal series and is Shelby and Charlie’s story. Shelby is haunted by past demons, and Charlie is determined to protect her, and together they work to overcome obstacles in their path. This is an emotional and heartbreaking story, but with love and family anything can be overcome. This talented author has written another mind-blowing story, and I look forward to reading more of her work!

Powerful, emotional and heartbreaking. This is an intense story about Shelby's painful and horrific childhood, the woman she is today, the man that loves her. Charlie loves Shelby and will do what he must to protect her and their HEA. Very Entertaining and moving read. I'm posting an honest, voluntary review after reading an advance copy of this book.

This is the fifth book in the Shattered Lives series and in true Barb Shuler form, she takes us on an emotional roller coaster of happiness, anger, sadness and more. I shed tears with this book and felt for Shelby and others affected by the happenings. Another page turner I couldn't put down.

Shelby's past has been riddled with sorrow and endless heartbreak. Trying to suppress those demons has been a task, especially when the love of your life has no clue what you've truly been through.

I really enjoyed watching the author develop over the course of this series. The last two books are my favorite. Not just because of the characters, but also because of the writing. This really is a gritty series. These women go through so much. Tough as nails. They have some strong men backing them as well. I love how close they are to each other and how they have the others backs no matter what. A great series.

This story is Shelby’s- she suffered abuse at the hands of her father, and overcame it and ended up becoming a doctor. When she meets Charlie, and he learns of the devastation that wAs her childhood, he wants to do anything to remove this mad man, for good.
I loved the story, as it was beautiful to see Shelby doing well. Though she was still haunted by demons, she didn’t have to slay them alone.
I highly recommend this series!
