**BT** Shattered & Shaken ~ J. Bailes

Shattered & Shaken 

J. Bailes 


Allie Anderson has encountered more heartache than any one person deserves to experience. 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 notice. Wyatt once held Allie's heart in the palm of his hand-he crushed it.

Blake, Allie's best friend turned lover 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 Blake when she's not sure there's a her to give away? Allie's heart is like a puzzle that's unfinished and missing pieces-it's impossible to put together.

After being MIA the last four years, Wyatt returns home. Allie's forced to make a decision on who she wants or who she believes she needs. No matter who she chooses someone will be devastated.

Allie's life begins to fall into place, her heart begins to heal, and happy is no longer a foreign emotion-until she's betrayed by the two people she trusted most.

Her heart's left shattered into a million pieces, how much pain can one person tolerate? Is her heart permanently damaged? Hearts are like broken glass; you can put it back together again, but it will never be the same.

Amy's Thoughts~ 

I'm feeling a little Shattered after this book. J. Bailes, where have you been all my life? 

She knows how to convey these emotions in her book. I felt like I was feeling everything Allie was going through. 

Allie has been put through hell. she lost her father to cancer, her brother by war, and her first love, Wyatt,  for reasons unknown. Now on top of this, her mom is pulling a disappearing act for days on end. Allie turns to her best friend, Blake, for comfort. As Blake slowly picks up the piecesof her shattered heart & puts it back together, her world crumbles again, and again, and again. Can she take much more? 

Allie is a lot stronger than she thinks. Between Blake & her best girl friend, Sophie, she's able to move on. Regardless of her many, many unanswered questions. 

J. Bailes puts the reader through an emotional ringer! I laughed until my sides hurt, I cried the big bad ugly cry. Immediately after I finished it, I messaged her and was full of chatter about whats to come. Waiting for Shaken 2 is going to be very hard, but it's also going to be worth it. It's going to be one of the *epic* Love Stories.
