❤❤ Shattered Series by Alexis Noelle - 4.5 star reviews ❤❤




Growing up poor and with a set of parents who couldn’t care less about her, Jessica Evans was on her own. She knew she wanted better and was determined to make it through college. Her only problem was that she was broke, and college was expensive. That’s when she was introduced to the world of depravity and scandal that she currently resides in.

Damon Shaw has just been assigned to take over the day-to-day operations of the escort service where he’s has been working for almost five years. He immediately bumps heads with the sexy and stubborn Jessica. Damon is determined to show Jessica who is in control and make her follow his every instruction.

When the two get together, sparks begin to fly. Jessica and Damon will challenge and enrage each other at every turn. The sting of words and the temptation of seduction are ever present between them. Damon is not at all what he seems. When all hell breaks loose, will Damon and Jessica make it or will she send him packing?

Alexis Noelle i freakin hate you right now. Okay, I still totally love you but these cliffhangers are KILLING ME. I swear you sleep at night dreaming of ways to get readers all sucked in and in love with characters, only to rip our hearts out but still leave us a shred of hope. And like everyone else, I'm holding on to that damn shred like my life depends on it damn it!

First of all, Alexis writes amazingly. Her stories suck you in. They're so relateAble. So real. Like someone you can see yourself sitting next to in class and chatting with. Or having a drink with after a crappy Friday night. And the relationships. The sarcastic pain in the ass best friend who's seen you at your worst. Or the man who breaks down your walls even when you don't want him to. The man you can help but fall in love with. She gives us those perfectly. You fall for him just as much as Jessie. You're confused and overwhelmed and obsessed just like her. Then it happens. Alexis throws a damn wrench in the plans you never saw coming. Completely from left field. Oh but it doesn't stop there. She then tackles you from the back so bad you don't know which side is up. At the end you're just left hurting with your jaw on the ground. That is how I felt after reading this. Yeah, pulverized.

Please Alexis. Tell me you're writing a book two!?! If not, I'm tackling back!

 I gave this 4.5 stars!

What I did to her is unforgivable. 

I shattered her completely. 

I did it knowing I was wrong the entire time. 

Now that I’m here, and she is within my reach I still can’t resist her. My enemy is still lurking and more threatening than ever before. I won’t allow any harm come to her. I need her to forgive me, and to let me in again. 

I need her to be mine.

Alexis has done it again. She's delivered a thrilling ride full of tons of drama and some seriously scary people. Not only that, I'm pretty sure she gets joy out of breaking our hearts. I was so sure this was going to be our happily ever after, of course we can't have that without a huge heart break.

I love the story of Damon and Jessie. I love the way he fights, and she does too- just in a different direction. But he never falters or gives up. He risks his whole life for her because he loves her that much. I kinda wish we could've known how the case panned out. But I have no other complaints or issues with the plot line or how it turned out. Well minus that huge freaking wrench Alexis hit me upside the head with.

This story picks up where the last left off and has the same feel and connection like Shattered Innocence. You still have that connection and dying need to know how everything works out. Well done sequel.

I give this sequel 4.5 stars!
