Griffin comes from a family living with abuse and while his mother is the victim Griffin has his own scars. His father has never laid a hand on him but what Griffin has witnessed as a child and as a man has impacted him to the point where he feels like the risk of the him causing the abuse is to much of a risk so he doesn't get to close to women. That is until he meets Frankie.
Frankie a free spirit meets Griffin and her life changes. She has found a man who is compassionate, loving and she know would never hurt her. Now she needs to help Giffin understand that.
This book shows the other side of the coin on victims of abuse and does so beautifully, the children. The author does a fantastic job of showing this by weaving an honest story. Her compassion and sensitivity to the victims is done to perfection. This is a great summer read for those who are looking for a honest story.
In "Shatterproof", Griffin meets Frankie, who is unlike anyone Griffin has met before. Usually his time with women are one night stands or short flings, but he sees something different with Frankie, and it scares him because he thinks allowing himself to get close may turn him into his abusive father.
Griffin has outlets, molding clay into figures for clients, volunteering his time to help abused women, his many discussions with his former high school teacher Mr. Roth, and hanging out with his best friend Sarah. But he needs more.
This story, expertly told by K.K. Weil, brought me through the ups and downs of the relationship that Griffin and Frankie made, and the struggles to overcome the odds that the son of an abusive father has. I highly recommend Shatterproof to anyone 16 and over (mild violence and some minor sex scenes). Great work, K.K. Weil!
I can't wait to read all of her books.
Griffin is a volunteer at the Holly House, this is where he meets Frankie. Holly House is a safehouse for abused women; when Griffin see’s Frankie he looks for bruises, etc. thankfully he doesn’t see any. There is something about her eyes that really drew him in.
Frankie moved to the city with her boyfriend but it didn't work out and she has found herself at the Holly House for a few days until she finds an apartment. She loves macro-photography and meets Griffin while taking pictures.
Fate steps in and Frankie and Griffin run into each other at the hospital. It was not a good time for Griffin since he was there with his mother who once again was making excuses for his father.
Griffin finds out that Frankie works as a waitress and goes in hopes of seeing her again and ends up helping her get an apartment.
I’ve been smiling a lot more since you came around.
As these two grow closer things heat up. Griffin has fears that he will end up like his father. Frankie is looking for the one and see nothing but the best in Griffin. Can she get through his walls? Can they get a HEA?
There is a huge twist towards the end that had me so emotional, my heart really went out to Griffin. I was so glad that Frankie was stubborn and strong enough to stand up to Griffin and prove him wrong on his beliefs. She was great for him, she was exactly what Griffin needed. Some of Griffin’s memories were heartbreaking and brought me to tears at times. The ending was great. This is a great story that approaches honest fears for anyone who may grow up in an abusive home. These characters pulled you right in and I couldn’t stop until I was done. K.K. Weil has done a great job with Frankie and Griffin’s story.
