Release Day Launch - A Shattered Heart (Fractured Lives #2) by Tiffany King ~ Includes Ava's Review.
*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.*
“I wanted to wipe away the haunted look in your eyes and smooth out the crease of grief between your brows...I wanted to be the reason you started living again.”
A Shattered Heart is the story of Kat Darby and how she navigates her life after a car crash that changed her world. I enjoyed book one in this series and when given the chance to read Kat’s story, I jumped right in.
Kat lost not only some of her best friends in the car crash; she also lost the love of her life, Dan. Kat didn’t know how to live incomplete so instead she ran. She ran from her friends, her family and her responsibilities. But running only took Kat so far, and before long, Kat knew in order to move on she had to face her past.
But with Kat’s past came harsh truths she didn’t want to face. Her friends Zach and Mac wanted answers and then came Brian, Dan’s younger brother. He wanted to be there for Kat but at times, his likeness was just too painful for Kat to bear.
I understood how Kat felt, I could certainly empathise with her but there were a few times in the story I felt myself tiring of her martyr ways. Don’t get me wrong, I knew the girl was grieving but in regards to the story, I felt it was losing its rhythm and I just wanted Kat to breathe easy again.
I must admit when I discovered Kat’s love interest was her late boyfriend’s brother I felt unsure. Could I root for two characters that I doubted should be together? The short answer is yes I can and Tiffany King proved that to me. Brian was no longer just Dan’s little brother, he had grown into his own, and he cared for Kat and wanted to see her live again. He ticked all the right book boyfriend boxes and only a few scenes after I met him; I knew he was the man to heal Kat.
A Shattered Heart is at times a sombre tale, it’s emotional and hard to read but then when that glimmer of hope shines through we are reminded that there is life after love and everyone deserves a second chance.
