Shattered: Rhodes Family Book 1 by Lisa Wood – Review by Elizabeth Sanchez
Shattered by Lisa Wood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Shattered is the first book in the Rhodes Family series. This is the first book I have read by this author, and I enjoyed it. I will warn, it is very R rated, and written for mature audiences. The book is a little too graphic for my liking, makes 50 Shades look like PG. But if I look beyond those scenes, the book had a good story line. I love that the female lead, Olivia, is a strong independent woman, and a rocking lawyer. Granted she is running from a failed relationship, but she is rocking her life. Gabriel is the male lead, and while he is arrogant, rich and a ladies man, he is also a pretty good guy. He is a family man, and goes above and beyond to take care of Olivia, even after just meeting her. I love the supporting characters as well, and look forward to seeing how book 2 plays out. There is some hints toward it’s plot at the end of this book. I loved the way the book was written, alternating point of views. While this is nothing new for romance books, seeing his and her views, this had a new approach I have never experienced. It has chapters for many of the characters, including Gabriel’s sister and parents. It added to the unfolding of the story and the emotions involved.
