I liked the 1st person, alternating narratives, and I always like when a story honors our nation's heroes. But it was very distracting to be pulled from present tense to past tense and it was ridiculous to have the book end before the story came to a close.
I understand cliffhangers to sell the next book, but this felt more like Friday afternoon's soap opera.
Note to author: Be honest with your readers that the book is not going to stand on its own as an independent story and trust that if your work is good enough that the reader will WANT to buy the next story in your series. But readers don't like to be misled.
Shattered Dreams starts off with Emma and Max. A young married couple, Max is in the army and is stationed in New York. They have a sweet, pure love that we all dream about. A happy life with good friends, a supportive family and a beautiful new baby boy. But dreams shatter and when tragedy strikes and the unthinkable happens, Emma has to find a way to carry on for the sake of her son.
Fast forward a few years, Emma and James are closer to family and getting by and better every day. She dedicates her time to raising her son, not thinking about dating or loving again. But then she meets Alec, a friend of a friend, who is the first man to make her heart race since Max. Alec and Emma start to spend time together along with her son James and Alec has a daughter Raelynn! They begin a friendship that becomes more. There is a bit of a mystery surrounding Raelynn's mother. You don't really get the story about what happened to her. Yet???
The secondary characters were very likable! I especially loved Emma's best friend Brooke who was her neighbor on the Army base and years later becomes her neighbor again! And James is a delightful child, I enjoyed watching him grow.
I will anxiously await the second book but until then I highly recommend you read this book! It will make you cry but it will make you smile more! Thank you Brenda for another brilliant story!
First Shattered Dreams was an altogether an amazing book just like I knew it would be! I read the synopsis of the book before reading the actual book so I had some idea of what it was going to be about, but I am very happy that the beginning of the book started with Emma and Maxs life together, this gave the reader an emotional attachment to their love for each other. You had me crying twice just with in the first few chapter once when Max was shipped off for early deployment and when Emma got the news that Max was killed in action and saved everyone in his platoon (when Max was killed I cried my eyes out). I also loved how you didn’t just skip right to her new life in Florida you gave her time to grieve Max and some time for James to grow up. I love how you include the ending of Destined to love with this book. I love how you don’t rush things with Emma and Alacs relationship but at the same time things don’t drag out. Also I love how Max comes to Emma and James in their dreams, I know Emma is starting to move on with Alac but I hope you have Max appear in her dreams still every now and then. :) All together the book was put together perfectly! Oh and holy cliffhanger at the end!!!!
I am an extremely picky reader, but I absolutely love Brenda's book!!! She has an amazing talent and is an amazing author!! Cant wait to read all the books she will have in the future!!
The thing that drove me to review the series was when the author wrote herself into the story, bragging about her cliffhanger strategy and shamelessly plugging her other books. That’s when it went from poorly written to laughable.
I’m sorry to write this, but other readers need to not waste their time reading it and the author needs to give some more thought to her writing.

Second half of book was ok. Four years have passed but Max's parents treat them like teenagers. If you hurt her...... What's up with that. The ending was a huge surprise. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Working Out
