WOW WOW WOW.... my head is spinning and my heart is rejoicing. Shattered is a brilliantly constructed romantic thriller that I devoured in a single sitting.
I was quite weary of reading this book after I read the blurb. I considered it to be some sort of enemies to lovers romance in which the detective fell in love with the criminal BUT it was nothing like that. Infact the plot was completely different from what I imagined it to be. And I absolutely loved it. This was something like I have never read before.
SHATTERED centers around Sarah Jacobs, a criminal psychologist. She has suffered a lot with her father being a psychotic killer. Her father loved her in the only way he could but he sort of setup her mind as that of a killer but Sarah put her killer instincts to the best use by joining LOST (Last Option Search Team) as a criminal psychologist. Enters Jax Fontaine, a criminal, a self-made billionaire, a man risen from the ashes. Jax is continuously haunted by his own demons, he is unable to recall his past (childhood) perfectly and so he wants Sarah to help her find his family and the person he was before he became Jax Fontaine. But Boom Boom Boom, plot twist, suddenly Sarah's life is in danger. She is being hunt down by a psychopath who seemed similar to his father. Is the man hunting Sarah her father or someone else? Will Jax ever discover himself?
This book is full of heart pounding action and suspense, it also has a love at first sight sort of vibe and I really really loved it. .....Sarah and Jax were complete opposites but still so alike. Their characters were constructed in a very unique way. They were really developed and I got engrossed in them easily. Talk about sexual tension and attraction!! It was insane. The romance was so very intense and their chemistry was just so so so strong. They heated up the pages and left me swooning. Their relationship was just perfect. They were like the broken puzzle pieces who found each other and fit together perfectly.
Opposites didn’t always attract. Sometimes, two people who were alike met—and the rest of the world fell away.
This was my first Cynthia Eden book and I just adored it. She has an amazing and unique writing style. She even tried to confuse the readers in this book with everything that was happening. It was a very complex plot but she depicted it in the best possible way.
This book had been added to my favourites list and I'd be reading it again again until I've got my fill of Jax and Sarah.
