Releasing Oct 27th, 2015
Criminal psychologist Dr. Sarah Jacobs is all too familiar with the kind of bad boys who belong behind bars. But the dark, dangerous man she meets in the New Orleans underworld is a new kind of ruthless, and all too irresistible.
Jax Fontaine doesn't claim to be a good guy, but he's loyal to his own code and brutally honest about what he wants. He and Sarah may be worlds apart, but when they're skin to skin, nothing matters but the heat between them.
And when a deranged killer targets Sarah, Jax will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
"Some people get happy endings." Sarah said. "Even if they have to walk through fire first."
Shattered starts off with the LOST team still in New Orleans after closing their most recent case. Before they leave Jax Fontaine hunts down profiler, Sarah Jacobs to ask for her teams help in finding out where he came from before he was taken as a boy. Before he could ask her though, she is attacked in her hotel room and Jax saves her. Sarah's dark past is making an appearance again and both she and Jax realize that she has an enemy in New Orleans.
Jax felt an instant connection to Sarah when he met her and will do anything to protect her from danger. They start on a twisted journey, trying to find a killer and uncover secrets from both of their pasts. Along the way things get uncovered that neither Jax nor Sarah ever thought would come out and they find themselves trying to protect a lot more than just each other.
Jax was notorious in New Orleans as being a violent, powerful man that residents feared. But Sarah could see the deeper side of him. He was a fierce protector in a really rough around the edges kind of way and loyal to those he cared about. We met him in Twisted and right away I knew I needed to get more of his story to find out what he was hiding behind the tough exterior. I loved his character and how possessive he was with Sarah, not in a creepy way but a majorly sexy way!
Sarah's dad was "Murphy the Monster" a serial killer that tortured his victims until they begged for death. He taught Sarah from a young age how to be a killer like him and how to read people. She used the evil from her father to become a profiler and turns what she was taught into something good. I thought she was a strong character and I actually really liked her in this book. When we first met her she came off kind of stand offish so I wasn't sure how I would feel about her, but in this book she opened up so much and the change was amazing. Jax brought out a different side to her and it made me realize how truly perfect they were together.
I felt like this book was different than the rest of the series because it was more suspenseful and a little darker but I loved the change. I was kept on edge the whole time while reading and I hated when I had to put the book down. There was also a softer side to the story that I thought was absolutely amazing. I really did not know that Jax would be as sweet as he was but I loved it and I loved how it calmed the rougher parts of the book. There was darkness, there was cuteness, and I absolutely loved all of it.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and am so happy that I got to read it early because I was nonstop thinking about it ever since I read Twisted. But oh my gods, that ending! The epilogue killed me so here we go with the waiting again...
