Blog Tour: Shattered and Shaken by J.Bailes

Shattered and Shaken (Shaken, #1)
by J. Bailes

18+ Mature Audience Only


Allie Anderson has encountered more heartache than any one person deserves. She’s lost her father to cancer, her brother to war, and the love of her life –Wyatt – took her most prized possession and vanished without a trace. She’s left crushed and heart-broken.

Blake, Allie’s best friend, is everything she needs; he’d give her the moon if she asked for it, but there’s one problem – he wants Allie entirely. How can Allie give herself to anyone when she’s not sure there’s enough left of her heart to give away?

Allie’s life begins to fall into place. Her heart begins to heal. Being happy is no longer a foreign emotion. That is until the man who broke her years ago returns, shattering her fragile heart all over again.

Allie soon discovers that hearts are like broken glass; you can put it back together again, but it will never be the same.

Our Review:
4 Stars

Shattered and Shaken starts off as a tear jerker and throughout the book it’s just a roller coaster of emotions. I have so many mixed feelings about this book I don’t even know where to start, I love it, I hate it, yet I still want more.

Allie is a girl with commitment issues. She feels that every man she has ever loved has left her one way or another. Allie’s father dies from cancer, Wyatt, the love of her life vanishes from one day to another and her brother is killed in the line of duty. All the loss in her life makes her insecure and she has a tendency to overact at the most insignificant moments.

Blake is the perfect book boyfriend (MINE!). He comes from a loving family and is currently on his 3rd year residency at a local hospital. He has it all figured out, the only thing missing is for Allie to open her heart and trust him enough to give herself to him. **sigh**

After years of flirting and teasing Allie finally agrees to move on and open up her heart to Blake. Life is finally starting to look up for Allie. Then Wyatt comes back into the picture. He is determined to win Allie back and starts his pursuit for her. This has Allie second guessing everything she has built up with Blake.

Next thing you know everything comes crumbling down.  As secrets are revealed and hearts get broken, feelings of betrayal leave Allie once again with a shattered heart.

J. Bailes has left me in total shock.  I was so engrossed in the book that I didn't notice it was almost ending. I literally screamed when I read the words “To Be Continued….” Why??? I need more like now!!! I am anxiously waiting for the next installment in Shaken Series. J. Bailes I am totally hooked!  #TeamBlake
