Try as you might, but all you’ll do is piss her off. When you fuck with fate’s masterpiece, tragedy strikes, death occurs, and hearts get shattered. I’ve never been one to follow the rules. So instead, I stood with arms wide open and I challenged her. I knew the possibilities of her kicking my ass were high, but I refused to back down. I invited all the heat she packed, and quickly learned my lesson… You don’t fuck with her. **READ Shattered & Shaken and All for Allie prior to Shattered & Mended, as this is the last in the series**Mature Audience...

    Shattered and Mended starts off where Shattered and Shaken left off. You need to read Shattered and Shaken first, and you should read All For Allie as well so you are not missing any if this incredible journey. Allie Anderson has been completely shattered again. She has suffered so much loss that it doesn't seem she will ever be able to piece herself back together again. Just as she seems to start to piece together and mend her heart and soul, something seems to shatter her again. Blake is a gorgeous, brilliant, kind, sex on a stick, driven doctor. He is not only in love with Allie but he is also her best friend. Blake has been fighting to piece Allie back together and have her love him. All he wants is to build a life together with her. He will do anything in his power to help heal and protect Allie, even if that means keeping Wyatt far away from her. "...Allie Grace Anderson, I vow to take you as my wife. To love you with all my heart, body, mind, and soul until I'm laid to rest. I promise to handle your heart delicately, to prevent and protect it from harm. I vow to never betray you, give up on your dreams, or walk away from you when times get rough. I promise to be the best father, husband, and man I can be to give the best of myself to you and bring out the best of you..."Wyatt is beautiful, sexy, determined, hard headed, stubborn, and very focused on getting Allie back. Wyatt regrets how he handled things in the past and is trying desperately to piece together everything to figure out how things turned out the way they have. But being kept away from Allie makes it a hard fight. "...You're my soul mate, my one true love. I promise to hold and cherish you, and to trust you with all if my heart. I vow to be your life long lover, companion, and best friend. I promise to laugh with you, cry with you, and hurt when you're hurting. I vow to provide you with the highest von or and to give you the respect that you deserve. I too, promise you my forever..." Will Blake be able to keep Wyatt away from Allie? Will Allie be able to heal and recover from all that has happened? Will Wyatt be able to piece together and get the answers he is searching for? What will happen to these three when tragedy strikes again and turns everything upside down? Who will end up mended and who's heart will be shattered? "...You see, when you love someone more than life, love their life more than your own, you'll sacrifice your own happiness for theirs. And that's what I'm doing, putting her first. I'll never love another woman the way I love Al. What we shared was a once in a lifetime love..." Oh Julie Bailes you evil evil woman! I love and adore you and your books but many times you left me wanting to throat punch you. This is one of the best series I have ever read. I am not always a fan of love triangles but I loved both Blake and Wyatt so much that I needed to know the outcome. With the cliffhanger you left us with in S&S, I was truly nervous to see how S&M would play out. But this journey was so incredible and I am so happy with how this story played out. You made me laugh, and you made me cry countless times like a baby with this series. And you made me fall in love with two incredible men! Allie, I am so jealous that you could have two men love you like Blake and Wyatt do. Maybe I too will someday have my own HEA! But until then I will reread The Shaken Series and continue to give it a Nerd Alert A+++ or 5 stars! Give me more books Julie!

    Shattered and Mended by J. Bailes is told from dual POV’s. Please read Shattered and Shaken (Shaken #1) and All for Allie (#1.5) before reading Shattered and Mended.Shattered and Mended picks up where Shattered and Shaken leaves off. All for Allie is told from Wyatt’s POV and I would highly recommend reading so that you get a look into Wyatt’s reasoning behind why he left Allie. S&M is filled with angst, love, loss, and yes heartbreak. I must say that the ending left me with my mouth agape—literally—I didn’t see that coming. I find it hard leaving a review without giving too much away so I will just say that I’ve been team Wyatt from the beginning so I was rooting for his and Allie’s HEA and was not disappointed in the ending but honestly very surprised by the twist. I was completely engrossed in this series and anxiously turned each page. There were some parts of the story that drove me crazy as well but I would definitely recommend it. I enjoyed the wittiness and dry humor of each of the characters. The story is good, especially for a debut novel, but could have been a little stronger in some of the details. Looking forward to following Julie Bailes to see where she takes us next.

    Where to begin.....in the end this will go down as one of the best series of all time for me. Days after re-reading S&S and then reading All for Allie and Shattered and Mended I still cannot believe how it ended or who Allie ended up with. I for one had hoped to see it go the other way, but I usually do want what I can't have. Lol! Julie ripped our hearts out in Shattered and Shaken, stomped on them in All for Allie and tried to put them back together in Shattered and Mended only to rip them back out again several times. She definitely has a knack for making you take on the emotions of her characters and I found myself wanting to cry for, hug, hold and stab pretty much everyone in this series. Allie sums it up nicely in the end with her conclusion that everything that happened over the years brought her to the place she was meant to be, as the strong person she was supposed to be, walking beside who she was supposed to be with. It may not be the choice I'd hoped she would make, but it is the right choice for her. If you have not read Shattered and Shaken, All for Allie and Shattered and Mended, this is your chance to get all three and change your life. Seriously. Five stars, loved them all. <3 Kellie

    Wow, this book was a roller coaster of a story and i loved every minute of it. Shattered & Mended is book 2 in the Shaken series. It can not be read as a standalone. You must read Shattered & Shaken (Book 1) first. I would also suggest you read All For Allie (Book 1.5) before too because it gives you a better perspective on Wyatt. Shattered & Mended keeps up where Shattered & shaken left off.There are a lot of things happening in Shattered & Mended, there is never a dull moment. It keeps you hooked throughout the whole book. Wyatt won't give up on Allie in this book. He also goes after finding out more information about Lacey. A lot of things happen with Blake and Allie too. We find out some shocking things about Sophie is this book. I was very disappointed in the direction Sophie's character went but it fit well into the story. This book has a lot of crazy twists that I never expected. When reading the ending, you may think it has a cliffhanger but it doesn't it. Julie Bailes reassures us that it's not a cliffhanger and Wyatt and Allie's story will not change. Even though their story won't change, I do hope we will get more Wyatt, Allie, and Blake.

    4 1/2 stars!Firstly I would like to thank Bailes for kindly providing me with a copy of Shattered & Mended to read and review This book, was a whole mind fuck of fuckery.!Seriously....I didn't know what to do with myself, on one hand I wanted to scream at Allie as to what she was doing, then I wanted to scream at Blake at the end...I wanted to kick Wyatt's head into.....causing un-necessary heartache....as you can tell, Yes I am #TeamBlake and I think I always will be :)There is so much loss, so much heart ache, and yet, no matter how much it hurts Allie seems to find a way to stay strong and push through. I was torn between Blake and Wyatt, but I wasn't happy at all with the ending.....but I trust in Bailes's writing and I do hope she has more in store for us... I love/hate her right now!Shattered & Mended will have you hurting.If you have not read Shattered & Shaken, All for Allie and Shattered & Mended, this is your chance to get all three and change your life.

    why Julie did you have to make me love the ending so much? Allie has so many ups and downs I never knew what was coming until boom there it was. She is as always stubborn and warm hearted. I loved reading her snarky comments she kept to herself. I busted out laughing and crying to many times to count.Blake oh my Blake. he proved to be the man I thought he was and I will forever be in love.... Wyatt well you made me hate him less I don't think I love him though I just like him a lot which is better than me hating him.I felt like I was on a roller coaster headed down and then back up again. i held my hands up and enjoyed the ride. this book was never dull. Surprise after Surprise... You have once again done it.. this is a must read. STILL TEAM BLAKE!!! I told you I would always be..

    This series has become one of my favorites. It's beautifully written. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't read it yet, so I'll just say this.... How much do you love someone & how much are you willing to do or endure to prove that Love? Wyatt & Blake both prove their love in this book.

    So I just finished Shattered and Mended, and all I can say is wow! Wow that Allie had to go through so much pain. Wow that Sophie stooped so low to get a man to have sex with her. Wow that Wyatt was so persistent in his pursuit of Allie. Wow that Blake was the best man ever. Just wow!So I just finished Shattered and Mended, and all I can say is wow! Wow that Allie had to go through so much pain. Wow that Sophie stooped so low to get a man to have sex with her. Wow that Wyatt was so persistent in his pursuit of Allie. Wow that Blake is the best man ever. Just wow!Last book, I was 60% Team Wyatt and 40% Team Blake. This book they were reversed. You know from the first book, I knew that Blake was a great man. He was damn near perfect. His only flaw was that he was always at work, but that’s to be expected of someone in his field. He gave her great orgasms. He mended her broken heart. He gave her many reasons to smile. He took care of her. How could you not love him? Sometimes in the book, I rooted for him and Allie to work, and other times I rooted against them. Fate…..I had a love hate relationship with Wyatt, and to be honest, I don’t blame her for fighting her feelings for Wyatt. Wyatt never gave up. Wyatt fought. At times, his pursuit seemed selfish, myopic, and egotistical. Let’s be frank, by the end of the book, I was an emotional mess. A mess because someone had to lose out; everyone couldn’t be winners. I don’t know how but by the end of the book, I was both happy and sad. Anywho, I could go on and on about this book but will wrap it up by saying that I loved it. I would totally recommend it, and it’s a great follow-up to the first book, Shattered and Broken. Thank goodness for a mended heart and the ability to forgive. What a blessing.P.S. An ARC was kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    A great series doesn’t come along everyday. Books that make you feel, they will make you cry, you will laugh and you will want to reach through your ereader in front of you and throat punch it’s characters. Shattered and Mended, plus the other book and novella in this series, are no different. Allie, Blake and Wyatt’s story continue in this amazing sequel."Baby, you keep teasing me and we'll go to jail all right, but it won't be me that goes. It'll be you, getting charged for disturbing the peace."~Blake Allie hasn’t had it easy, she’s a dang fighter. She’ll fight for her happiness until the very end. But, sometimes it may be a losing battle. Especially when fate is running your life."Patience! What the fuck is that? No such thing exists when you are as horny as I am."~AllieShattered and Mended is a superb continuation in the Shaken series. Allie and Blake are still going strong but every relationship is tested, that test is Wyatt the persistent bastard. With each trial every character goes through, you are sucked further into their world. In All for Allie we were introduced to Wyatt, it was completely heart wrenching. we delve even deeper into Wyatt himself in S&M. Julie made me hate him a little less."I can never make up for the things I've done to you.....But I'm here now, Allie." ~Wyatt"They left me behind worried, confused, and completely fucking broken"~WyattI don’t want to reveal too much; but, let’s just say, if you can keep a dry eye the entire way through the book I will be quite shocked. Shattered and Mended will have you hurting. But even with the sadness there are plenty of happy moments to help even out the emotional playing field. "You keep that shit up and I'm going to be Googling safe sex helmets."~BlakeS&M will not leave you disappointed but it will leave you wanting more. I have and always will be #TeamWyake.P.S J. Bailes, I’m still waiting for the threesome ;)

    Shattered and Mended (Shaken Series #2) by Julle Bailes4 out of 5 StarsAAGGHHH!!! I would like to chunk my Nook across the room but I can't type this review and do that at the same time. This is such a good book but it is truly one of the most angst filled books I have ever read in my life! I almost hate that I love it so much, but I'm only waiting until I finish typing this review to ask Julie Bailes when the next book in the series is coming out. So if I love it so much than why am I not giving it 5 stars you may be asking....well it's because I can't stand cliffhangers and I just don't know if this book ends with a cliffhanger or if that was just the ending....and that bothers me. I think it's slightly manipulative of any author to end a book with a hanger because it forces readers to buy another book if they care about the characters. When I would love to know how it ends in the book I already have invested my time in (and money if it's not for the blog and then tell me more in the next book. And I understand everything can’t be wrapped up, but the main plot of that book can be. So for me to invest in 3 books and still end with an unknown is just aagghhh!!! But let me back up and tell you what I loved...because I did love the book!Once again we have the same cast of characters; Amazing, handsome, giving, passionate Blake who loves Allie with all that he is. Allie who is snarky, sexy, lovable, insecure, and torn between the man who has captured her heart and the man who owns her soul and last but not least is Wyatt, the sexy, stubborn, soldier who wants his butterfly back. Together they light up the pages brighter than fireworks on the fourth!!Bailes is an amazing author and there is no other way to say how smoothly she writes or how passion filled her stories truly are. You really need to read them yourself to see how incredible she is!*A complimentary copy was given in exchange for an honest review*Pepper, My Secret Book Spot

    Ok, so I have to say that Julie Bailes has made me tear up and/or cry with each book in this series. That's a first for me. I'm not an easy cryer and it takes a lot to make me literally feel the sadness in a story I read. This series was EXTREMELY well written and each book only got better than the previous.After reading All for Allie, I couldn't decide who I wanted Allie to be with. Either man would be the ultimate catch. I do have to say that as the book came to a conclusion...I still felt strongly for Blake and I will forever be #teamblake. Though Wyatt loved Allie with all his heart and soul, in my eyes, Blake showed that he loved her more. I won't giveaway how, but I think he proved he was the better pick. Of course, being this is my review, that would just be my opinion. Shattered & Mended was filled with much more drama than the previous books. Allie is faced with learning what type of person her best friend, Sophie, truly is. She deals with more heartbreak and difficult decisions that anyone would just crumple to the ground if faced with the same experiences. She truly became a strong woman compared to the whiny girl I came to know in Shattered & Shaken. She became an independent woman after dealing with her life over the course of a year or so. I commend Julie for bringing to life an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING series and sharing it with her readers. I'm in awe of what I read and will always use these stories as a comparison for what I read in the future. She set the bar quite high and if I could officially give more than 5 stars...I'd have to say that all three books in this series would get 8.5 Naughty Stars, hands down!As it stands, Shattered & Mended has earned 5 great big golden stars for an emotional heart warming and heart wrenching read. Heart wrenching because I still feel like I'm recovering from a book hangover after 2 weeks of reading it.

    UGH………kill me, rip my heart out and stomp all over it. Yes this was a common phrase I was using while finishing the final book in this series. So now we get down to crunch time for Allie. She was left in the first book with a head injury, pregnant with Blake’s baby and Wyatt having just broken her heart once again. Once Wyatt found out why she was at Sophie’s and what she saw he went on a mission to find the pieces of that night he couldn’t remember. In the meantime Blake learns he is going to be a daddy and Allie will finally face how he is feeling about the news. It is once again at this point if I go on you will be getting spoilers and that just isn’t fair. I can say this last book carried me deeper into an emotional crying fest, where sometimes they were tears of happiness and other times it was tears of heart break. While I am not a huge fan of the ending, the epilogue was seriously the final nail in my coffin. Now with all of the greatness that sucked me into this book, I have to say I ended up being very frustrated with Allie on her running to Wyatt and then to Blake. There were a few times I was wanting to scream at her that she is causing most of her own angst, but then it appears the author felt that as well and made her suffer with even more trauma and heart break.I love this series, I love the writing style, the characters and I am not ready for this story to end. I have grown to love all three of them and don’t think there will ever be a time to say goodbye. I really recommend this series; just make sure you are ready for many tears and the use of a lot of tissues.

    I have waited for months for Shattered and Mended!!! It is simply amazing!!! Julie Bailes sure knows how to tug on your heart strings. This is one of my favorite love triangle stories, and although I was torn between Blake and Wyatt, I was so very happy with the ending. Wyatt and Blake are so much alike, yet very different. Both are sexy, strong lovers both emotionally and physically and both crave to protect Allie at all cost. Blake is a bit more reserved, focused on his career and what lies ahead. Wyatt...his only focus is Allie and winning her back. He fights relentlessly and steps up, holding Allie's hand when most men wouldn't have. Allie is one lucky lady to have two sexy men, vying for her love. Allie is stubborn, and quick witted, with a tongue sharp as a razor blade. She can love you one second, then slice your throat with her hurtful words the next. She clings to the pain she has suffered and doesn't forgive easily. At times she frustrated me, and I just wanted to shake her and scream *FORGIVE AND FORGET already!* But we have all been in her shoes...hurt, scared and torn, not knowing what to expect next. I sympathize with her situation, but I am so happy that regardless of her pain, she is given a happily ever after that she most certainly deserves. This story is just fabulous. It flows very well, will make you laugh, cry, scream and shout. I was so excited to see that we will get Blake's story, and I can't wait to see how his happily ever after turns out!!

    This book continued to shatter my heart before slowly stitching back together again… and I must say I was completely blown away by how amazing the ending was handled and written….The love triangle of emotions between Allie, Blake and Wyatt continues in this book and will keep you guessing who will have the final claim on Allie’s heart…. I was still routing for Wyatt through this book even though I didn’t want Blake to hurt…Allie tries to forget how her heart feels towards Wyatt and focus on Blake and their babies…… as he is offering her a promise of forever….This book yet again consumed me as I was pulled back into Allie world and taken on the heart aching journey as Allie tries to stay true to Blake and move on from her feelings towards Wyatt…She truly loves them both but with all the hurt and heartache Wyatt as caused her… she simply can’t take the risk with him???But sometimes, that little thing called fate… will turn your world upside down with hurt to ensure your destiny is always met…..This story is so well written, the story just flows and the love triangle isn’t something you feel bad or guilty about… but something which will keep you hooked, make you laugh, cry, smile and know the rightful path will be followed when the time is right….I am still amazed and a little speechless at how well the ending was achieved and trust me the outcome will not disappoint but warm your heart…My words can’t do this series justice… Julie Bailes did a fricking awesome job in writing them and I look forward to more work from in the future

    Amazing! Simply Amazing!Allie is one strong woman. There is so much loss, so much heart ache, and yet, no matter how much it hurts she finds a way to stay strong and push through. Oh Sweet Blake, you stole my heart in book 1 and ran away with it in this book. Blake is every woman's dream. The love he has for Al, is so sweet and kind and sexy. I love me some Blake. And then there is my Wyatt. The one I didn't want to like in book one and then showed his true colors in book 1.5 And ended sweeping me away and leaving me breathless. This book picks up where book one left off, Al is with Blake but Wyatt refuses to give up. When Al, wakes up in the hospital after her fall, they are both there for here. So much happens in this book and I refuse to spoil it. Instead I will keeps lips sealed and let you all experience it yourselves. Seriously, you must read this book. All I will say is this, I did not see how this book was going to end. I had so many options running through my mind. And yet when all is said and done, this Author left me stunned and still wanting more. These books are amazing from beginning to end. Strong character development, amazing plot, and lots of depth, covered with lots of love and heart ache. I can not say enough how much I love this series. It is a MUST read. Book one is Shattered and Shaken Book 1.5 is All for Allie (do not skip this book, it's important to read before book two) I can't wait to read more from this amazing Author. Don't wait, go read it. Now! ;-)

    Shattered and Mended picks up right where the first book ended. There's been a terrible wreck and both Allie and Blake are in the hospital. The twins had to be delivered early and there is so much uncertainty it's heart breaking. Allie needs someone to hold onto and Wyatt makes sure he's there. How can one person mess up so many lives? Selfishness creates so much disaster and it's up to those left to pick up the pieces. This book is deliciously heart breaking. I just wanted Allie to end up happy and wasn't sure who she should end up with. Sometimes it's not up to us, fate decides instead. The ending about killed me! I know it's not a "cliff-hanger", but damn it sure walloped me like one! Damn and double damn I saw it coming, but expected a little more from it. I'm hoping there's a spin-off series in the makes here. I will tell you I started this series off bawling my ever liven' eyes out! It's beautifully painful every last book of it. This is the type of series that hits home and fast. It causes a physical reaction, the feeling the characters have are so strong. This is an author I hadn't read anything by, but one I'll definitely have on my radar. Fives stars isn't enough for this book or this series. It's a must read and will be on my personal top list!I received a copy of this book for my honest review.

    4.5 FATEFUL STARS!OH. MY. GOD.I am going to tell you now- I will not be leaving my normal review because I DO NOT want to give away anything to y'all that have not read this series that is a must read of 2014!This book picks up where book one left off. Allie made her decision on who she wants between Blake and Wyatt. But does fate have other plans?This book is a roller coaster of twists, turns, and emotions that will have you gripping your kindle until the near end because just when it looks as though Allie will finally get her much deserved happily every after, fate comes in and kicks her in the ass because her story is not quite finished being written.I loved the ending to this story. After reading book one, I was totally #TeamBlake because he was there for Allie when she needed him the most. After book 1.5, I jumped ship to #TeamWyatt because I understood what he did was out of love and devotion to Allie though he might of went about it in an ass backwards way.This series will not end the way it leads you to believe. It will take you on a roller coaster that will mess with your head right until the end.... and it will finally answer the question, who will Allie end up with, Wyatt or Blake?Have the tissues ready! You have been warned!I recommend this series to everyone!

    I just knew it - I just knew that Ms Bailes was going to completely rip my heart out before putting it back together! OMG - I love/hate her right now!I have been so torn in two since Shattered and Shaken and All for Allie and have been anxiously anticipating the conclusion. I have been Team Wyatt all the way, but really wanted a happy ever after for everyone, but really how can that happen in a love triangle? (which is why I typically stay away from them as my heart can't take the stress!!)This book was sooo well written. You do not know how it would end until the end. I was so torn - one minute Allie had to end up with Blake, the next I just knew that Wyatt is her soul mate and the only one for her. It was killing me, in the very best way! With tears running down my face through most of the book, I was captivated by every twist and turn in the story. I felt for Blake, Allie and Wyatt. I cried with them, laughed with them, wanted to scream at them and loved each of them for various reasons. Sooo emotional, so real and just an unbelievably amazing ending to Allie's story!

    Talk about a frigging roller coaster... I am so glad I am not Al... She's to be torn between two men like that. So many times unwanted to scream and I do mean scream. I mean for some reason I absolutely loved Blake. He was just so wonderful. He makes my heart reach all time highs and skip beats. I have those crazy grins on my face when I read the story. He had me hooked and I couldn't get enough and then you throw in Wyatt.. Lord have mercy. I was so frigging conflicted. I wanted al with him too because he's stole Part of me too but I was so angry with him but once I found his reasoning that anger dissipated a little. But although it hurt to see him hurt there is that big part of me that wanted her with Blake. I can't help it I want to chose them both and I know it's not possible so I know her decision was never easy but I wasn't prepared for the events that take place. I was hurt, angry, nervous and worried and the ending omg!!!Please tell me there is more but I don't know if my heart can take it.

    Title: Shattered and MendedAuthor: Julie BailesRating: 5 Groupie StarsReviewer: EbbieShattered and Mended is the last book in the Shaken series. It is told from Wyatt and Allie’s point of view. I love a dual point of view, it lets you get inside both of their heads and understand what they are feeling. Shattered and Mended picks up where Shattered and Shaken left off. Allie was once again completely shattered. This book is filled with angst, love, loss and heartbreak. Will reading it I was wondering if Allie would ever find her happily ever after and who would it be with Wyatt or Blake?I don’t want to give too much away but I will say that Allie does find her HEA. The ending had a twist that I never saw coming and I was left speechless. Julie Bailes has done it again!!! Bravo on another 5 star read!! Many arse slaps and leg humps to you Julie Bailes, I love you witty writing and cannot wait to read more from you. I recommend this series to anyone who loves to read, read it and see for yourself why everyone is raving about the Shaken series.

    Wow! This book had me second guessing pretty much all the way till the end. Once again, I didn't warm to Allie. To me she came across as selfish and lacked any real emotion, but I must explain that my feelings towards her is no reflection on the authors ability to write an absolutely amazing story. I actually do find that I have a hard time warming to the female lead in most stories involving a love triangle. Unlike the first book, which was all in Allie's point of view, this one is told from Allie's and Wyatt's perspective. Despite my lack of empathy towards Allie, I found this book to have bucket loads of emotion, especially towards Wyatt and Blake. Surprisingly, I also found I had a huge liking towards Allie's Mother, who's warmth towards Wyatt was completely heartwarming. The outcome of this story was perfect for me, but as I expected, one of the guys has to lose the girl and that, if I'm honest, just breaks my heart. I'm hoping there will be another book/novella, because there's more to this story that for me, deserves to be told.

    Ah-freaking-mazing!!!Ah-freaking-mazing!!!I have been waiting FOREVER to have this book! I was lucky enough to get an "early gifted copy"! I'm not real good at reviews but I can tell you this: I know a lot of people are on the #TeamWyake fence right now but are you going to stay there or choose #TeamWyatt or #TeamBlake? This book is one hell of an emotional doozy! If your anything like me you will laugh, cry, scream and feel every other emotion in between! At times I wanted to throw my kindle, these characters drive me crazy, I even had a moment where I wanted to slap a b***h... or two (haha). It may or may not end how you want it to but you will not be disappointed. I am blessed to know this author and very thankful that she brought Allie, Wyatt and Blake to life for us! Julie Bailes you are amazing lady! Love ya!!!

    You need to read Shattered and Shaken and All for Allie before you picked up this book. This is a continuation of the Shaken series and can not be read without the other two.Blake and Wyatt are still fighting for Allie's love. They'll go to whatever extremes to make her theirs forever. Allie has gone through a lot in her life and is about to go through more. The only question is, who is she going to lean on when the storm hits? A story of love and loss, Julie Bailes did an amazing job at finishing out the series for Blake, Wyatt, and Allie. I would recommend this series to anyone because Julie Bailes is an amazing author and leaves her readers wanting more. You never know what to expect when you pick up one of her books.

    I really loved this book..and I cried..I know people were rooting team Wyatt but I was team Blake..This is the conclusion to Shattered and Shaken which was absolutely riveting as well..Allie had to face so many disappointments in her young life and they were really heart wrenching. Who was there to help her pick up the pieces? And how well did she do that? Her best friend? I really can say more without giving things away. The author has really woven together a story of love, life and angst that carried me through the whole gamut of emotions in the span of the book more than once. Kudos to her for really taking me out of my reality into hers for a few hours which is really what a reader wants, to get lost in a book.. A new author for me and one I will definitely keep following... (less)
