"He's a man broken and in pieces. Burning and drowning all at once. Shadows and light, pain and joy. Night and day. Two men at war with one another."

Leaving us with a cliffhanger like the one in Tears of Ink the sequel couldn't come fast enough for me. So I dove into the pages like a starving wolf into it's prey. And I devoured Tears of Glass from the beginning right through the end.

" I never want to have a second chance with you, because I want everything to be a first, forever."

Oh, holy cow. What can I EVEN say about this book?? First, that I'm mad at myself for taking a while to read it--because it's seriously one of the best books I've devoured so far in 2019. Second, that I'm happy I read the first book--because this one picks up fairly shortly after that incredible cliffie ending. But this is such an amazing sophomore effort from Ms. Bloom, and I'm thrilled and excited about where she's going to take this couple next. I have to say that I was extremely fond of them ...more

Tears of Glass is the second book in the series and continues where Tears of Ink ends so you must read the books in order. I’ve been desperate to get my hands on this second book because I needed to know what happens next. I found it (just like with the first book) very hard to put my kindle down. I had absolutely no idea where the story was going to take Faith and Elijah and I thought the author continued their story perfectly. We know the past that Faith has had, we know the man that Eli is, a ...more

I am absolutely in love with this series. The way that Eli and Faith just about explode every time their around each other is amazing! The push and pull between them is electric. The cliff hanger from book one makes you want to hate Eli, leaves you heart broken, not to mention the loss of Faiths family. Heading into this part of their lives it’s not easy to open up to Eli, but you can’t help but to root for them to be together. The whole time your yelling “take him back, no! What’s wrong with yo ...more

Five stars of glass! Epic and oh so consuming...

For lord's sake! What a book! I am left breathless and aching for more. Anna Bloom blew my mind with this masterpiece. Tears of Glass consumed me slowly until I lost my mind and heart. I was addicted and highly obsessed!  It had me glued to my kindle all night until I finished. Damn it! This book is explosive with so many twists and turns that make you stay all the time at the edge of your seat. It has the right amount of suspense, drama and passio

This is the second book in this series and definitely needs to be read after Tears of Ink. After the huge cliffhanger the author takes us on a journey where love and heartbreak is so close together and trying to cope with everything. Definitely worth the read and there are definitely some things that you just won't see coming!

After leaving the ball heartbroken, there's another loss that Faith has to deal with and it's left her with nothing but heartache. She's trying to cope in the onl

After reading Tears of Ink by Anna Bloom I was in awe of her words, her inspiration, and her magic with writing real, raw characters! Tears of Glass continues to draw me into her world where Faith and Elijah map out their new reality among the tears of glass.
After breaking all her rules, Faith is once again reminded of why she cannot trust anyone, except Al, Dan, and Abi. With Al gone, her trust circle is down to two.
How could she go back on her word?
Did she really love Elijah?

What a beautifully written, heart wrenching, twisting, emotional follow on to Tears of Ink this was (and another stunning cover). I loved it and felt the tears, anger and pain, their passion and love the whole way through.

After the shocking ending in the previous book, I needed answers. How shattered was Faith's heart and soul? What the hell was Eli thinking, let alone doing? We all know how messed up his family is, but had he finally broken too? Eli has a long journey to repair what he broke,

This is a great series! At the end of the first book I was so mad at Eli, but hoped they could overcome all of the hurdles in their way and just be together. I have to say Eli didn't stop pulling out the stops to win her back. This series is extremely well-written and evokes a lot of emotion throughout! There were some twists and turns I didn't see coming and can't wait to see how they handled their latest hurdle in the third book! Highly recommend!

After the dramatic ending of Tears of Ink, I was more than eager to dive into Tears of Glass. I needed more of the characters I had come to love so much, I needed more of the drama that hooked me, and I needed it as soon as possible. Thus, I was more than willing to dive into Tears of Glass and devour it in no time at all.

At first I was a wee bit worried I would not enjoy Tears of Glass as much as I enjoyed Tears of Ink. It was enjoyable, yes, but it wasn’t quite to the same level of intensity.

This is book two in this series.
Truthfully,I didn’t know what to expect,I’m just rooting for them.
Both of them are so beautiful,so hurt and so annoying....
Faith - a very frustrating personality, behaviour that you will like to shake her and yell
She is endearing, she is artist but unfortunately her past is hunting her.
Looks like she can’t move forward. The walls she build up are falling down and she has to let it go. Will she,can she?
Eli is no different - just speak to one another before making

This is the second book in the series so make sure you read Tears of Ink first. After that cliffhanger I couldn’t wait to read this and I’m delighted I wasn’t disappointed.

Eli and Faiths story continues and what a story it is too. These two are such fantastic characters. Two totally different kinda people yet they are so good together.

This is a brilliant read. We get to read more of their past so we get to know them more. This is one brilliant roller coaster of a story that I absolutely loved.
TEARS OF GLASS is the second book in a duet and cannot be read as a standalone.

I finished Tears of Ink a little gobsmacked, I mean what a cliffhanger! I was not happy with Elijah at all...
but oh boy, did he redeem himself in TEARS OF GLASS.

TEARS OF GLASS is about second chances, taking chances, making changes, two people from different backgrounds and social circles who are drawn to each other. I was transfixed with the plot.

I like a woman with backbone and Faith had that but at times that wo

Our eyes lock.
“Everything that ever made me feel is on my skin.”

And the story of Eli and Faith continues with all of its heart break, hope and tears. After the devastating ending of Tears of Ink Faith has lost her way, reverting to only her only coping mechanism, relying on her learned behaviours that she had worked so hard to overcome. Running back to everything that was once familiar and was once home Faith makes some dubious choices before she sees the dama

Ok so we pick up where we left off in the last book. Faith ran away from all her problems along with a lot of prospects for future work. I was really hoping to get some of Eli’s POV in this one since most of the problems that pop up are from miscommunication. But the relationship in this book progresses a lot from TOI. And we get to find out more about Faith and her mysterious past. She does do something that’ll probably be a trigger for a lot of people right at the beginning of the book and it ...more

Sometimes it's the little things we fail to see

"This isn’t about seconds. It’s about all the firsts."
This ends on a bit of a twisty cliffhanger 😳 leaving me concerned as to what this will mean for the future of our couple. They have both lost enough and have overcome so many obstacles.
"I give him a small smile, but I can’t say I accept his apology. I don’t give second chances. Not to anyone."
I will admit I was a bit upset with Faith though Eli probably could have handled things a whole lot bett

After reading the ending to Tears of Ink I was seriously wondering how Eli was going to redeem himself. That and I was so concerned about Faith! I have to say, I fell even more in love with Eli as the story progresses. Not only did he redeem himself but he went above and beyond to prove his love to Faith. I also grew to love Faith even more. The wall around her heart slowly fell and she started letting people in. What I didn't like was Dan. I originally liked him in Tears of Ink but I lost that ...more

What did I just read? I finished this in one sitting and I still have no idea what I read. I’m kind of in shock with this series. I was absolutely left floored with the first book and the second? It was like a wrecking ball to my heart, like my heart legit hurt reading some of the pages in this book. This author has some great power with words that I’m still not over reading them.

I couldn’t wait to jump into more of Faith and Eli. These two characters feel like personal friends now and to witness the growth in their relationship was so endearing. That’s not to say they had didn't have their struggles along the way, and Ms Bloom expertly navigates the reader through all the twists and turns, making you connect and love these characters more. There were plenty of moments, I sat with a big loved up smile on my face, especially when Faith & Eli finally make their peace, but ...more

After the cliffhanger at the end of Tears of Ink I have been waiting for this one, ready to see Eli redeem himself! He had to right? of course he did! I had an inkling about a horrible thing Faith would do and I was right, although I have been reassured by Anna Bloom that all will be made well in a future book.

Tears of Glass is a second chance book. Faith had started to grow and open up in the first book but now she's starting to grow more. She's not shutting people out once she's over the pain,

Good GOD!! This book!!

So intense!

It starts off where tears of ink finished (😭) and the rollercoaster of emotions starts from the very first page until the very last!! Fast becoming one of my favourite authors!

Following faith and Elijahs relationship through everything from loss to surviving heart break too, you can’t help but feel everything!

“Some second chances are worth the risk, Faith . Gerard let you down, but you shouldn’t do it to yourself too.”

A beautiful story full of second chances, Anna Bloom once again goes all out with Tears of Glass, the second book of the Tears Of series. I have nothing but love for this book but this quote really stuck out and I knew I had to use it here. I do have to say this is not a standalone you must read book one to understand this storyline and

Tears of Glass is book two in the Tears of.. series, and it continues on from where Tears Of Ink ended, So its recommended that you read book one first, otherwise you will be all kinds of confused.

Utterly flawed me and left me hanging on a cliffhanger like no other, and everyone that knows me knows I am a sucker for a good cliffy and

Have you ever seen the Illumination film Despicable Me with those cute little minions? Well I have, like a million times, because they’re just adorable. One of their famous quotes is the simple word WHAAAT. This word must be said with your mouth hanging open with a complete and utter look of confusion on your face. A look of disbelief because the brain just does not compute what you’ve heard/read/seen. Got it in your mind? Good. That will be your face for pretty much the entirety of this book. T ...more

Tears of Glass continues from Tears of Ink where we get to know more about Faith and Elijah's relationship. We see the follow up of her broken heart caused by Elijah, but can he make her heart whole again or will she go back to her old ways? in the book I was able to see a growth in Faith. We learn more of her struggle with her past and the challenges she has to overcome in having to face her demons so that she can actually be free.

Elijah was someone I ended up being angry with in Tears of Ink.

Keren Hughes still my beating heart. Faith...stop playing with my heart.
They’ve gone and done it again. This intriguing duo played with my emotions, repeatedly.
Are they dating? Aren’t they? Is it lust? Is it love? Is it completely over?
Those were questions plaguing my mind while I devoured each chapter. I nearly finished the book in one sitting and I would’ve done if I hadn’t had to go to bed.

Faith is so strong but sometimes, it’s a fragile strength. Does that make sense?

Hooray for this book!!! Tears of Glass is the followup to Tears of Ink (read them in order!!!) and I am still reeling from it!

Faith and Eli are over, especially after the disaster of the Bowsley Ball.

Faith is back in Brighton and she is back at the tattoo shop, she's a mess and losing Al hasn't helped at all. Faith and Dan are doing all they can to keep themselves whole. They are both riddled with grief and can't seem to break themselves out of it.

When Tabitha shows up Faith is concerned, she knows nothing good can come of it. She can't turn her away either. She loves Tabitha and will do whatever she needs. Faith has

An anger like no other. Tears for Al lost to cancer, Tears for him lost to her and tears for a future no longer visible.

A dream shattered like the heart upon the floor. Feet that run to safety back to familiarity.

A friendship teetering on the edge of a cliff, thin threads holding it together.

Her mind running like her feet as her thoughts swirl through her mind.

Dreams, ambitions, art, love. It's a painful world but confrontation is a must in order to survive.

Elijah Fairclough a complicated soul.
