Irrevocably Shattered

4.21  ·  Rating details ·  101 ratings  ·  28 reviews
My soul was damned from the start. No amount of repentance could save it, and it would be a sick joke to even try.
There was no God for me. There was only hell. A hell I’ve grown well accustomed to because of the savage hand life had dealt me.
My fate was sealed long before I sold it to the La Cosa Nostra. Violence and destruction were all I ever knew. All I ever crave

Ravenous eReader Book Blog

This was a tough one to rate, but we're always honest in our reviews. Couldn't rank it a five star. But we couldn't rate it a two star either because this book wasn't a terrible read. We'll begin with the reasons.

1. The pace. This book started out with a lot of action. We're given a strong, emotional opening and all of a sudden the action comes to a screeching halt. It also seemed as if some of the scenes in the book didn't really move the story forward. This is why we just couldn't seem

This story sucked me in from the start and I read it in one sitting. Can’t believe this is a debut story.

This is Alayna and Carson’s story. It has a good storyline with plenty of twists.

I certainly recommend this story as I thoroughly enjoyed it.

So looking forward to seeing what comes next for this author.

I really enjoyed this story! I’m liking mafia stories more and more, this one was pretty unique and I really enjoyed reading. The characters had a ton of personality and I love how it all came together in the end, I was pulling my hair out during that one scene! I had never read this author and I would love to read her again!

Stopped at 39%.

I just couldn’t get into the book. Didn’t understand why the heroine hated the Hero so much and was so mean to him - that kind of ruined it for me.

I love a good mafia book and this one is no exception. Yes it does move quite slowly but boy does it build up to a final crescendo that had me picking up my jaw from the floor.

Story centres round Alayna who's grown up being the daughter of Michigan mafia boss Vinny. She's his princess and treated as so also, but that doesn't mean she's not independent, strong and tough. But when her father's empire is threatened he has one thing on his mind and that to protect his daughter with a full-time body

“You’re a siren, Alayna. A sweet and innocent siren set out to destroy me and everything I f*ing stand against…”

Alayna is the daughter of the Michigan mafia boss, so she’s the princess everyone respects, not for her status but for her own work, she’s strong and is independent and is getting something in life for herself, so when her father’s empire is threaten, she doesn’t take too well to have a bodyguard full time.

Carson’s past is tragic, he lost everything he cared about, and was taken in by

I really did enjoy this story which took off from the jump, so I was preparing myself for a heart racing good time. Now, I did get that for the most part, but see, it was weird for me when it slowed way down for a length of time before taking back off again. Alayna is a mafia princess who is strong in her own right, so she's not laying down for anything, and I fell for her hard. Then there's Carson, a man she hates (I'm still unclear why though) so she's not about to make his life easy, as he's ...more

Carson and Alayna are explosive together, I think. I mean, nothing goes boom, but they are just wow. They are just so hot. They are both strong, stubborn, and loyal to their family and the people whom they love.

I think that Alayna is a mix of naive and worldly because she knows what her family is into, but is isolated from it, so she is just separate from it. I really like her and her smarts and how sharp she is.

Then we have Carson, who isn't quite the monster that he thinks he is. He doesn't

"It wasn’t a matter of if we’d get caught, it was a matter of when…" Oh my goodness, I have found a NEW, dark mafia romance writer!

Irrevocably Shattered drew me in, and I could not put this book down!!! Not for anything… I think you'll be in deep trouble if you do not clear your schedule of anything else!

It is not often when I say I'll read this book again; but, this is one of those times!!!

I cannot wait to check out more books by this new to me author!

Alayna is a mafia princess and when danger comes knocking, Carson who is the 2nd in command is tasked with protecting her. This is a well written tale which is a unique mafia story, and is filled with drama, danger, twists, and is a steamy read. I was hooked and intrigued throughout, and I look forward to reading more from this talented author.

This is the first book I have read by this author so I had no expectations when I started reading. I actually enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the back and forth between the FMC and MC. This was decently written with the characters being well developed.

Omg the feels!!!!!!!! Finally a heroine with a freakin backbone!!! Most mafia romances I read the girls are always so submissive and just accept their fate, but nope not Alayna! Alayna and Carsons story is definitely addicting and I love a good forbidden romance. This did not disappoint.

WOWOWOWOWOW!!!!! I absolutely LOVED this story. My heart is forever in love with Carson!!! He is everything I love in an alpha male.

This book had so many plot twists, I couldn’t stop reading for even a second.

I highly recommend and I hope Maksims story is next!!!

I looooooved this book. Carson is the type of character I look forward to in any mafia book I pick up. I hope the other characters, like Maksim, get their own story because i'm really looking forward to reading more books from you, S.C. Ellen. ...more

Decided to pick up this authors book on a whim and I was definitely not disappointed.

Carson is raw. He is tainted. He is broken...but walk the path with him and you will see him evolve.

Entrusted with looking after his adopted fathers biological daughter, I’m sure he never could imagine that he would fall for her.

They made a good couple.

For a new author this was a very good read. I love romance novels, and I’ve become ridiculously hooked on the love story between the two characters. Don’t worry I won’t spoil anything, but I highly recommend “Irrevocably Shattered” to anyone who would like to add to their romance novel collection.

A fast paced mafia romance that leaves you wanting more. Alayna is a mob princess, Carson is her father's second in command and tasked with being her bodyguard. These two characters together are explosive, and their love/hate relationship will keep you turning the pages. There is plenty of drama, twists, turns, and sexy scenes that make this a definite must read. ...more

This was definitely better than I anticipated, especially from a new author. I have been struggling to find some good reads lately, and this finally hit the spot.

I'm a fan of bodyguard forbidden love and I loved the secret identity aspects as well, despite it's predictability. Mafia romance is also my jam....hence the excitement I had after reading blurb.

However, while I wouldn't say this book is "dark" per say, it does have some triggers and parts many won't like (See b
