I have to say, I wasn't too impressed with Mia from the first book, but I was willing to give her a chance. She really didn't make the best impression at the beginning of this book, but as the story progressed, I will admit that she did eventually grow on me. I was happy when she finally let her guard down and show who she really was.
I found Flynn to be a really interesting character. I liked learning more about him and how he ended up where he did. I thought that Flynn was a good match for Mia. Even though they both had their issues, they were just what the other needed to help push to fix their problems.
Overall, I thought this was an ok read. The pacing was a lot better than the first book and the story-line kept me interested. I enjoyed the forbidden romance element and the emotional issues that the characters faced. Even though this book wasn't a home run for me, I'm still glad I checked it out.
Shattered is book 2 in the Perfect Little Pieces series. Although part of a series, Shattered could be read as a stand-alone. Shattered is a story of forbidden love. Mia Horton is an intern at Newton Heights Mental Hospital. Flynn McKenna is a long-term care patient. When we first meet Mia, she believes the internship is what she has been striving for and that her life is fine as it is. Mia spends more and more time with Flynn as an assigned patient. As the story progresses, it is through each other that Mia and Flynn recognize they have to deal with their personal issues before moving forward. Ava Conway brilliantly shows the progress Mia and Flynn make in recognizing the value of self-worth.
Shattered is the first book that I've read by Ava Conway, and a book unlike any other. It was a fairly quick read and had my attention from the very first page on. While it was the second book in the Perfect Little Pieces Series, it can be read as a standalone.
Shattered is the story of young and ambitious college student, Mia Horton. She is excited to begin her new internship at Newton Heights Medical Institution. All of her hard work in school has finally lead to this moment, and she has high hopes that her internship will open doors to her future career as a Psychologist. As she gets better acquainted with the patients, one in particular fascinates her. Flynn McKenna doesn't seem like he belongs in a long-term mental facility. He's caring, compassionate, and intelligent. As Mia and Flynn begin to spend more time with one another the lines between patient and mental heath intern begin to blur in to something way more. Mia is determined to give Flynn hope for his future so that he will fight for his recovery, whereas he believe that he will only cause Mia ruin.
Shattered was such a gripping story. The plot was unique and refreshing, which had me turning pages with the need to discover how Mia and Flynn's story would play out. I loved watching the character growth that Mia underwent throughout the story. At the beginning of the story she looked at the patients as beneath her, and by the end she finally saw them as people just like her. While Mia had every intention of rehabilitating Flynn's life, he's the one that really healed her. She found someone to share her pain and burden's with. Flynn made her look at life from a different perspective, and this was a beautiful thing. These two characters had a deep emotional connection and healed one another.
I loved Shattered, by Ava Conway, and highly recommend it! It was such a brilliant story that made me reflect on my own life. As Flynn spoke his words of wisdom, I though of what he said about living in the moment, as opposed to always looking toward the future. He referred to how people stop noticing the beauty around them because they get so absorbed in their own lives. I think this is very true. I made a mental note to try to cherish the small miracles all around me, and live in the moment more. This story was entertaining, but it also spoke to my heart on a deeper level. If you are looking for an excellent story that is outside of the box, I suggest you give Shattered a read!
