Shattered (The Torzial Affair Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Lisa Brydalski

Shattered (The Torzial Affair Book 1)Shattered by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shattered is the first book in the Torzial Affair series by author Via Mari. The Torzial series is a spin-off of the Prestian series by Ms. Mari and while it can be read as a standalone, I have to admit that I felt like I was tossed into the middle of a scene since I did not read the first series. This book follows Jenny Torzial, the owner of a successful consulting firm as she navigates her life following a devastating personal experience. Jenny meets Brian at her best friend’s wedding and feels a deep attraction to the mysterious stranger. Circumstances beyond their control continue to throw the two together and sinister characters want nothing more than to hurt Jenny but Jenny’s new love interest wants nothing more than to protect her.
There is so much that goes on in this story that at times it got confusing (I need to read the Prestial series) but as I continued reading, I got a better understanding of what had happened to the characters in the previous series. I liked Jenny and Brian together and I especially liked the way the author didn’t write Jenny’s character as being weak or whiny. Jenny was dealing with a lot yet still managed to have a backbone, these are my favorite type of characters and I will be reading the next book just to see how Jenny grows.
