I am so happy I got to read this talented author. I liked how she brought these characters to life. From the prologue, I can say wow. The prologue is pulls you in and you want to read more about Tori. You want to know how everything is going to turn out. How she moves on, if she can move on. Can Tori overcome this and become a better person for it. Tori is a very strong female lead. She shows her vulnerability through out, but then she shows you how much growth her character gets throughout, but at times you are not sure if she will be strong enough to cope. I loved Ashby, as soon as he was introduced into this book. He was written so well for Tori. Tori need and Alpha male, but also needed someone that can show that weak side also. That vulnerability with an alpha is great to see also. In addition the two best friends, Josh and Rachel, they are the best friends you wish you had. Dependable, one that calls you on stuff, ones that you have a shoulder to cry on, and also ones that will tell you straight. I think these four characters have a lot of love for each other and that makes a good read, one that you want to finish the book. The book is one of those straight forward books, you see everything you need to, there is no hidden agenda with the book, a little bit of drama, and of course you see how you can reconnect with people from your past. I wished there was an epilogue for this book, I would love to see what happened down the line, because I liked to see it all the way through.
The story was very enjoyable. I loved finding this author and only with her the best. I would recommend this book and this author. I hope to read more from her, because I can see her continually growing as she writes her next books
Tori and Chandler have meet before. They have a shared past, but now in this new city at this new point in time. Life has changed. Dramatically. Tori had demons on her door. She has fear, anxiety. She was truly shattered. The pieces of her life have been scattered to the wind. She needs more than a simple hero to help her rebuild what she had lost.
Chandler was the quintessential loving, strong, caring, sincere man that Tori needed in her life once again. He was a firefighter, ex-army. He was just that kind of man that could not sit back and watch someone suffer. He also had the protect gene.
Christie Corbin has a good debut on her hands. With well written character and an attention grabbing introduction you will find the read fulfills something within. I did find a disappointment but that was my perception and could work just fine with other. Overall, I had a good read and look forward to more from Corbin.

"Shattered Pieces" by Christie Corbin tells the story of Chandler and Tori. Chandler is yummy! A sexy firefighter whose only desire is Tori and to keep her safe. I liked Tori as well. She is working hard at moving on after a bad relationship. She is strong yet understands the need to lean on others at times. It always bothers me when heroines feel they don't need anyone else and try to do it all on their own. I didn't quite understand some of her decisions, though, especially when it came to the "gifts" she was receiving but still, I admired her willingness to move forward, even if it was difficult. While, at times, I thought the details of some scenes were a bit much, it did help put the reader into the scene and understand the thoughts and actions of the characters. The flow and pace of the story is good, although, a time or two, was a tad bid slow for me. Ms. Corbin covers some serious issues throughout the book and I found she did an admirable job. Being this is Ms. Corbin's debut, I was pleased with the result and will certainly look to read future works by her as she develops and grows as an author. (received copy for honest review)

Shattered Pieces, the debut novel from Christie Corbin, tells the story of Tori and Chandler. Tori is currently living with her best friend Rachel and her husband Josh. Tori has been having nightmare, anxiety, and panic attacks due to a controlling and abusive ex-boyfriend, Liam. Rachel knows some, but not the full extent of Tori’s issues. Josh is a firefighter and invites the newest fire fighter, Chandler, over. Surprisingly, Tori and Chandler used to date in high school before his family moved away.
Chandler is the perfect character for Tori. He was in the military and currently a fire fighter and very protective of Tori. Even though this is true, he was surprising very patient with Tori and waited for her to be ready for the next step.
I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes a little suspense and drama mixed in with a smoking hot firefighter! **ARC recieved from Tasty Book Tours in exchange of an honest review**
