Book one of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Shattered Hearts series, a sexy second chance rock star romance.
Sometimes, it takes more than love to mend a shattered heart.
After eight years of being tossed from one foster home to another, Claire arrives at the home of Jackie Knight and her son, tattooed guitarist Chris Knight. Chris becomes Claire’s first friend and first love. But Chris's dreams of musical stardom and her need for a stable home put their love in jeopardy. Chris struggles with his plans for the future, entirely reluctant to leave Claire behind; until Claire does something that may break their love — and the only home she’s comes to know — forever.

How all started for Chris and Claire. A beautiful and painful story. A must read if you are a Shattered Heart fan!
Nothing but net!!!
Cassia Leo nailed it with this prequel to the Shattered Hearts series. No spoilers because everyone deserves to experience the full effect of the beginning of these two souls falling in love. There's nothing like your first love!!
Good beginning for the shattered series. New appreciation for Chris.
I'm glad Cassia wrote and released the prequel of how Claire and Chris met after the other stories. It's a beautiful beginning to an amazing love story. I have a better understanding and appreciation for Claire's choices. I was so hurt and frustrated with Claire in the other stories, but after reading the way Claire grew up and her insecurities in life I have a new perspective about her. Plus the sacrifices she made in the name of love.
My only compliant is the age in which they discovered their love for one another. It's never good when is sixteen year olds falling in love when they have the weight of the world on their shoulders. Also, people always encounter different roads in life and even though you are in love sometimes those paths are not the same. In this case Chris is in a band that is getting awareness and has to travel. But Claire cannot follow after Chris's dreams. She must follow her own path. They say separation makes the heart grow fonder and that is the journey that this story leads to.
These books are all amazing and will consume you from beginning to end.
I'm disappointed in Claire. I never realized how insecure and unsure she was in her relationship with Chris. Chris has done everything he can to make Claire feel confident in their relationship. Yet, she continues to believe he is going to be tempted by all the girls. He has never given her any reason to doubt his love for her.
I would still encourage anyone who wants to read this series to begin with Relentless first and read this one last because the way that story is set up leaves you guessing and wanting more.
I wish after reading this one that Claire would have had faith in Chris to trust in the love they had for each other without him having to give up his dream. When Claire let go of Chris she gave him freedom to start dating other people. How can that hurt less than allowing him the opportunity to prove his faithfulness?
