REVIEW* Shattered Pieces by Christie Corbin

Struggling to mend a broken soul can be more painful than leaving it shattered. Just ask Tori Blair.
To most people, Tori has the perfect life. She has a great job, great friends. But looks can be deceiving.
Behind closed doors, she battles the demons haunting her from a previous relationship. No matter how hard she tries to break away from the past, it keeps holding her down.
Chandler Ashby thought joining the army to follow in his dad’s footsteps was what he wanted. After realizing military life wasn’t for him, he left and became a firefighter. A new career in a new city was exactly the fresh start he was looking for.
But a chance encounter reunites him with the high school sweetheart he left behind. He soon realizes that the carefree girl he once loved is now a woman fighting to overcome fear and anxiety caused by another man.
Will Chandler be able to save Tori from her demons, or will they both go down in the fight?

B &N:

Shattered Pieces is the debut novel from Christie Corbin and I must say it was a very good first novel. Honestly, if I didn't know this author I would think she has written a number of books before this one.
From the first few pages there is no way you are not going to say out loud ”WTH” or “ What's happening?”. Christie does a good job in grabbing your attention from the get go and I didn't want it any other way.

A little about the characters:
Tori the lead heroine in this book goes through a lot in this story. She is broken, afraid, has anxiety and just trying to get her life back after everything her ex-boyfriend put her through. A night out with friends reunites her with a person from her past.

Chandler Ashby, just the sound of this name makes me swoon. If I remember correctly this is my first firefighter story and I think I am in love with them. Chandler is loving, kind, caring and an all round sweetheart.

The only thing I would say about the story that I was disappointed with was the peak of the story. I think Christie did an awesome job in building the suspense with Liam lurking around. She took me on a ride but I felt that I was left on the top of the roller coaster wanting so much more. I wanted the story to Liam(without giving away too much) to have a more of an impact. It was very safe.

Overall, for a debut novel the author did a really good job. I would recommend this book to anyone.
The story has a good flow to it, characters are very well develop and complete each other. I enjoyed reading how each character had a connection to another. Shattered Pieces gave you that family and loving feel to it. I honestly really like it.
