Review: Shattered and Shaken by J. Bailes


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.

J. Bailes completely sucked me in to my two worst nightmares - love triangle and cliffhanger! And yet I couldn't have loved these books any more!  I willingly admit that I'm a Happy Ever After type of girl and want that HEA ending immediately! However, her writing just pulls you in so quick and so deep that, for the first time ever, I didn't want the ending because I don't want to choose yet!!  Even if you aren't typically into cliffs and triangles, I am telling you, this one is sooo worth it!  

Poor Allie, I have no idea what I would do in her shoes.  Blake healed her heart, taught her to love again, and is all around perfection - sexy, caring, completely devoted to her.   Wyatt, the one who shattered her heart,  comes back into her life.  And you cannot help but love him immediately.  She is all he wants, has ever wanted and will ever want.  Everything Allie though she knew is turned upside down.  And you are there right there beside her on this roller coaster ride! Blake or Wyatt?  Blake or Wyatt??  There is no way I can choose!!

What a heart wrenching, gripping, emotionally conflicting, beautiful love story.  I cannot wait to see where it goes next and am now a lifelong fan of J. Bailes.
