SHATTER is Book four in Erin McCarthy's True
series. I am addicted to this series. The characters in
each book are so textured, and so easy to like, that they
are easily some of my all-time favorites. SHATTER is no
At the start of SHATTER, Kylie Warner is a young
woman going through a challenging time emotionally. She is
recovering from the bombshell that her boyfriend and one of
her best friends had a one-time drunken sexual encounter.
Her friend she forgave, even though it was difficult.
However, the creepy behavior shown by her ex after the
alcohol fumes cleared revealed him to be a jerk of epic
proportions and their relationship was done. For me, this
book is about Kylie's journey of self-discovery with a
great romance thrown in. The story is told from her point
of view, as well as Jonathon's -- Kylie's new romantic
I wasn't sure at first, if I would like SHATTER or not.
In the previous books, I never got a feel for who Kylie was
as a person. I should have known better. As with the other
books in this series, SHATTER is a great character study
and Erin McCarthy does a good job of breathing life into
these characters. Recurring characters from previous books
make appearances, but the two main characters are the
I like how Erin McCarthy handled the issues of pregnancy
and birth control. They are series topics but I don't feel
as though they were dealt with in a heavy-handed way. There
is drama but not melodrama. The romance that develops
between Kylie and Jonathon is equal parts sweet and sexy.
Erin McCarthy knows how to write a hero. All of the guys in
this True Believers series are a dream, even though
are all very different. They are all sexy, sweet, and treat
the women in their lives with respect and just the right
amount of awe.
SHATTER is yet another in a long line of well-written, very
hot romances by Erin McCarthy. This book can be read as a
stand-alone book, but I highly recommend checking out the
previous books in this series. They are worth it and a must
read for contemporary romance fans. I can't wait for the
next book by Erin McCarthy!
Kylie Warner prides herself on being optimistic, but after
finding her best friend in bed with her boyfriend and
flunking chemistry, her upbeat attitude has taken a dive.
Even an impromptu hook-up with her sexy new chemistry tutor
only brightens her mood slightly. After all, itâ€™s not like
sheâ€™ll ever see the tattooed scholar again
While heâ€™s a whiz at complex equations, Jonathon Kadisch has
trouble when it comes to figuring out women. So when Kylie
tells him that sheâ€™s pregnant after their night of passion,
heâ€™s at a complete loss. Heâ€™s prepared to be a good
fatherâ€”unlike his own deadbeat dadâ€”but heâ€™s less prepared to
fall for the genuine and alluring blonde bearing his child.
With emotions running high, Kylie wonders if Jonathonâ€™s
devotion is out of growing love or looming obligation. And
when heartbreak threatens to tear them apart, Jonathon will
have to fight for the only girl whoâ€™s ever made him feel
