Maverick trauma surgeon Ashton “Snow” Frost keeps the world at a distance, relying only on his three closest friends to keep him connected. But when a ghost from their past returns to Cincinnati, Snow stands to lose everyone he loves. Framed for murder and reeling from attacks on his friends, Snow is pushed to his breaking point.
Jude Torres won’t let the doc shatter. The paramedic has been attracted to the doctor since he first laid eyes on him at the hospital, even if the arrogant, solitary man doesn’t fit into any of his plans. One hot, reckless kiss shows that Snow isn’t who he appears to be. And one night together will never be enough. Jude will fight for the doc.
Fight to keep him whole. Fight to keep him safe. Fight to simply keep him.
Shatter is the amazeballs, mind-blowing, fabulous, suspense filled story of Snow and Jude and also the bond between the four brothers. This book is one hell of story which needs to be read and experienced to know the full extent of it’s awesomeness…!! I loved this book and it pushed all my buttons. I devoured this book and couldn’t put it down until I was finished…!!
Now onto the review. I’m going to list out the reasons why I loved this book and will recommend it to everyone..!!!
1.Snow – We see a whole new different side of Snow in this story. We see the vulnerable side of him where he longs to be loved and how he lets someone take care of him. Snow is a complicated person and it was fabulous to read how Jude unraveled him slowly through the book. As much he is complicated and vulnerable, he is strong too..!!
2.Jude – Well..!! Jude is perfection. He is hot,sexy,take charge kind of man, who bulldozes his way into Snow’s life once he realizes that Snow too feels the attraction. He is caring, loving and patient with Snow and turns into his support and strength and takes the effort to understand and see the person who lies underneath. He is exactly what Snow needed. Simply put he is just amazing…!!!!
3.Their Relationship – The way their relation is built through out the story and the way they fall in love is just amazing..!! I loved that the authors weaved their love and relationship amidst the suspense and action. Also there is not much angst as they are mature enough to communicate and sort their problems…!! Snow opened up to Jude and the way Jude made Snow fall in love with him and gave him what he had been missing out was nothing short of perfection. Jude loves and accepts Snow for the person he is and Snow finds peace and acceptance which his soul craves with Jude.
4.Sex- The Sexual tension and chemistry and the resultant sex scenes are too panty melting..!! Dirty Talk, Kinky Sex, Sex against wall it’s like an overload of sex and it’s un-fucking-believably hot..!! The book kept me hot and bothered the entire time I was reading their story. And Snow’s kink..!! Good lord…!!!!! (Fanning myself…!!) Jude and Snow literally set the pages on fire..!!! They were too too too hot and sexy…!! The authors has done a tremendous job in building their sexual tension and chemistry. Jude and Snow explode with passion and intense chemistry when they are together, which in turn paves way for mind blowing sex..!!!
5.Action and Suspense – There is plenty of action and suspense in this book. There is an overall story arc which is being built and it will be resolved only in the coming books. I liked that the pieces of the puzzle are only slowly coming together. All the books are connected and all the events which happens in the books too..!! There are some difficult and heart breaking things in this book,which I never saw coming…!! And it truly broke my heart…!!
6.The bond between the brothers – The story apart from being the love story of Snow and Jude, is also about the bond between four brothers. We see all four of them and they all are equally important in this story. Even though this book is a stand- alone, their stories are continued from the first book…!! The depth of their bond has been explained from Snow’s POV and it is really great to read about such a deep soulful bond.
So… in short, I LOVED THIS BOOK…!!! I was in M/M Heaven after reading this story..!! I loved Snow and Jude and I want to read more about them all…!! Now I just cannot wait for the next book…!!! A must read for all M/M Romance lovers…
