Blog Tour: Shattered by CC Brown

Book Title: Shattered 
Author: CC Brown 
Hosted by : The Little Black Book Blog 

 When it rains it pours…. Hard-nosed and self-reliant Dallis O'Brien has had her fair share of devastation. Her father's tragic accident sparked what seemed like a domino effect of heartbreak and loss. Unable to shake the fear of enduring any more pain, she builds walls around her heart, hoping to heal on her own. Dallis' road to recovery is disrupted when she meets Grayson Rivera, a tattooed, coffee shop owner who, by appearances alone, isn't her typical match. Stubborn and hesitant to let him in, Dallis finally succumbs to Grayson's persistence, where he challenges her to face her loss while also having the walls of her heart broken down. With Grayson's assistance, Dallis must decide if she is willing to learn how to be weak in order to be strong

Dallis is a girl who knows a thing or two about heartache. Losing her dad when she was in college, she quickly forms a bond with Colby, someone who has always been strictly a friend to her, but as he comforts her, their relationship changes into more. For three years they've been together but there's something holding Dallis back, keeping her from accepting the idea of marrying him. When Dallis' mom gets sick, her relationship with Colby begins to crumble. The wall around her heart hardens. This results in what I consider, the undisputed nastiest breakup in the history of fictional breakups. 

Newly single, Dallis focuses on her job, as a photographer. She works with her best friend Miranda, who is an interior designer, providing photography for her designs. When a coffee shop owner hires them to redesign his place, Dallis' walls begin to crumble. Grayson, otherwise known as Barista Boy, begins to pursue Dallis. Their chemistry is hot and Dallis is drawn to him but attempts to resist his charms. 

But with the help of her meddling best friend, and his persistence  Dallis finally gives in and allows Grayson into her life.  Their romance is full of passion but Dallis is still resistant to open her heart. She's yet to fully move past all the loss in her life. Will Grayson be strong enough to help her through?

So Grayson ended up towards the top of my most loved book boyfriends. His strength, confidence, sexiness and love made him irresistible. His own heartache and struggles made him the perfect companion to Dallis, helping her through her issues. And when the time came, he was strong enough to let her go, and confident enough to know that she would come back. 

Just a book reading, writing loving, mommy and USMC wife! :) I love to write, even if it isn't what is conventional and makes everyone feel giddy inside. I usually pull from dreams, or ideas that just thrust themselves into my head. I have what some would describe as a dry sense of humor, and I think its conveyed in my writing. I like to think I am a kick ass chick, but I can also be sensitive. I'm learning to grow thick skin, and in this field, it is definitely needed! I won't put anything out that I am not absolutely proud of, but like E.L. James said, "I can't own people's reactions to it." Thanks for reading my work... I do appreciate it!
