Hazel is a strong and very talented woman who learns to overcome the lemons life has thrown her.
Distance may have separated them for a time but when Hazel returns to Australia it's time to let down her guard and let love in.
Romantic, sexy, dramatic, funny and loaded with a cast of characters that will make you want more. I laughed, got teary eyed, got angry and all the things in between that wonderful stories are made of. Fun Aussi-isms that make you go "hmm?" are sprinkled throughout adding flair and flavor to the story's location.
I thoroughly enjoyed the second novel just as much as Fragments, M R Field's first novel. All the same characters I loved in the first make their bold appearances and snarky remarks in Splinters as well as a few more that have joined their family of friends.
While Splinters can be read as a stand alone, I highly recommend reading Fragments as well. You want a book you can feel good about when you turn the last page? This is the one.
Well, hand me a spoon because I’m able to have a big ol’ bowl of humble pie. I was afforded the rare and beautiful opportunity of being a beta reader for this book – now let me say this right here for the record – that as not shaped my opinion in any way shape or form. Field approached me with the opportunity and I kept saying ‘are you sure?’
Now, to the review - I love an underdog story. I love a heroine who can rise above all the adversity she has faced with dignity and elegance. I love a second change love story – for me – this book was tick, tick, ticking all my boxes. The one thing I didn’t count on, was how much of an emotional read it was going to be. I laughed, I cried and I loved this book.
Hazel seems to have it all. Wealthy family, great friends and fantastic talents in both the singing and dancing arenas. Hazel is living a lie. She’s very adept at putting a mask on to hide what’s really going on. I enjoyed how her story is not a conventional one. She might not have any physical scars from being a human punching bag but the emotional ones cut deep and have been long lasting. The author has delved deeply into the silent side of domestic abuse, written it eloquently but also so vividly. I related too personally to many sections of Hazel’s story and it’s heartbreaking. How people can be so cruel is still beyond me. I love how she has the attitude of ‘this happened to me but I’m not letting this define me.Read more ›
protection.” She sighs and shivers. Her eyes are hooded as she runs the
tip of her tongue along the corner of her bottom lip. If that isn’t an invitation
to go to her, then I don’t know what is.”
Splinters will lift you off of your feet and carry to bed surrounded by red roses and
soft candles. It’s seductive yet sweet but not overly so. It strikes the perfect
balance between sassy and sweet thanks to fully realized characters and plot.
Splinters is a story with humor, wit, love and heartache. Author M.R. Field has
done a superb job creating the sexual tension between Hazel, the beautiful girl
with the emerald eyes, and Robbie, the gorgeous boy with the panty-melting
smile. Thankfully, we are rewarded fairly early in the story when the tension is
dropped and the heat is turned up full blast.
Who can’t relate to a story of unrequited love? (If you can’t, consider yourself
lucky.) But this is what makes Hazel’s and Robbie’s journey so rewarding. I
found myself on the verge of tears a few times, especially the way Hazel was
tormented and bullied by her two older sisters as a teenager or how she’s treated
by her selfish and ambivalent parents. I detested her siblings and parents just as
much as I loved the fiery, adorable Hazel, who is clearly the black sheep in her
Hazel and Robbie’s close friends round out a stellar cast of supporting characters
who only add to the storyline. The alternating point of views — from Hazel and
Robbie — works brilliantly throughout the story.
“Are you mine, now?” I ask, gazing into the emerald pools that have
captured my thoughts and haunted my dreams for years.Read more ›
