My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I knew going in that this was a DUET (which means two) so I should not have been surprised by how it ended. I should have known that it was going to be tied into a neat bow at 92% when it was still “heavy”. I should have known that, even though this is a quick and great read, I would not have the answers I wanted today. No instant gratification. I am absolutely invested enough to grab the second part to find out how this ends.

ABANDONED BY LOVE is a Y/A-Coming of Age novel told in dual pov and in past and present time. The way it’s written is a really cool concept. It’s a shorter story so I was able to read it in one sitting, but I can’t imagine putting this book down even if I had something else to do. It’s one of those that stories that you know how it ends from the beginning, yet I was hopeful I misunderstood.

This is a story I would recommend to my cousins who are ready to read at a higher level and 7th grade.

The ONLY reason this is not a 5 star read for me is because I think the back and forth timeline could have been done in a smoother way. It took a little bit of the reading pleasure from me. Looking forward to reading the ending soon.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Abandoned by Love by Aleya Michelle is the first book in the Shattered Hearts duet. This is a book that will fully engage every single one of your emotions.
For me this whole book is made by the characters. Yes there is a story but everything about it, the emotions, the angst, is because of them. They consumed every part of the reading experience for me and I felt like I was taking the journey with them.
This is the first book I have read by this author and I have to say I love the way she has clearly crafter her characters and the story to fit them. The pace was fantastic and consistent throughout. I am very much looking forward to book 2!

Have you ever fallen where the person you just meet is your soulmate? Aleya Michelle wrote Abandoned by Love which has that topic. The characters are wonderful and I made a connection right away. I know of two people that have meet their soulmates in their high school days and are still married today twenty plus years ago. The story does have this travel from “today” and “past years” This story can be a true story which makes this story believable. In life we have moments that define us and what if we make the wrong choice. That thought crosses my mind more than once. Emily and Jaxon has that relationship of soulmates. Emily has made some choices in life that really hurt Jaxon. It is so easy to be upset with Emily because of the choices she is making and the same goes for Jaxon. He is an amazing character that gets the short end of the stick. I cannot wait to see what happens next in their story.

Ack!! I need the next book like right now!!

This story broke my heart, there’s so much going on and I love the way this story is being told. I can’t even imagine where this story will go but I know I can not wait to find out.

This felt real, the kind of thing that could happen any day and knowing that made this story hit home that much more. Her time hops were placed perfectly and very easy to follow and definitely strengthened the connection I felt to both Emily and Jaxon. I sincerely felt the emotions being portrayed in this book.

I was so angry with Emily through most of this story, even after what she went through, not trusting Jaxon was her biggest downfall in my opinion and his faith in her even after the decisions she made literally broke my heart.

I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of this story, I read this in one sitting and it flowed perfectly. This is my 2nd or 3rd book by this author and I’ve loved every one of them and have definitely become a forever fan of Aleya Michelle.

Loved It now give me more!!!! LOL

Abandoned by Love (Shattered Hearts Duet #1)
By: Aleya Michelle
5 out of 5 stars

The story Abandoned by Love (Shattered Hearts Duet #1) by Aleya Michelle is a book that I once I finished I thought “Wow!” The story is powerful and the characters amazing. The story had my emotions going up and down the entire time I was reading. There are heartbreaking moments as well as ones that warmed my heart. I loved reading about the characters of Jaxon Mayer and Emily Saunders. As I read the story I couldn’t help but find myself caring about them. These two were sweethearts. They had a deep connection to each other. They were perfect together, soul mates. Then a tragic accident happens. Everything changes. Once I started this book I didn’t want to put it down until the final page. I found myself thinking about it even after I had finished reading. It is a book I would recommend reading. It is the first book in a duet and I look forward to reading the next one.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A very solid and engaging romance from start to finish. Sometimes good romance still lends itself to the predictable paces found in many stories. This book did indeed have some expected moments occur as anticipated. But that didn’t detract from the storyline. In some ways it only enhanced the credibility of this story. This emotionally charged tale left me wanting me and anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. Strong characters, solid plot, romance – I truly enjoyed this book.

Abandoned By Love (Shattered Hearts Duet Book #1) by Aleya Michelle – Review by Angela Hayes

Abandoned by Love (Shattered Hearts Duet, #1)Abandoned by Love by Aleya Michelle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Abandoned By Love is the first book in the Shattered Hearts Duet by Aleya Michelle. This story has a familiar recipe, but done really well. Even though it was a little predictable, the story still engaged me and kept me interested. It is told from past and present perspectives, with a lot of ‘flashbacks’ into the past which helps to build up the backstory.
The plot really made me think about how one moment in time, one seemingly insignificant decision, can impact your life so irrevocably. That’s just what happens here though, one life altering choice, changes everything. When Jax and Emily have their whole lives ahead of them, and plans of always being together- how do things change so drastically? What drives Emily to leave her childhood sweetheart? Can their shattered hearts ever be mended? This emotive story is worth the read to find out.
Aleya Michelle created a solid cast of characters who drew me into the story. There were many emotional moments, that had me reaching for the tissues. There were also times I was really frustrated by the characters- especially Emily. But that added to the whole ‘feel’ of the story. The ending certainly has me anticipating the release of book #2, that’s for sure!
Well done!

Thank you, Aleya Michelle!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is an engaging, hard to put down story about soul mates and one tragic accident. This was an emotional ride that I had a hard time putting down. Jaxon and Emily just knew they were meant to be together at a young age until one night when fate had other plans. This story goes back and forth between the present and the past and is done so in an easy flowing manner. The characters made the story come alive and made me apart of their story. I highly recommend this book.

Heartbreaking!!
Heartbreaking is the one word I’d use to describe Abandoned By Love by Aleya Michelle. If you decide to read this book, and I definitely recommend that you do, then please make sure that you have a supply of tissues handy as you will sure as hell need them.
Jaxon and Emily are school sweethearts who are madly in love and have a bright future ahead of them. Jaxon is the star of the baseball team and Emily is a gymnast. Their lives are pretty perfect but then fate has a different plan for them. A car crash changes their lives forever. Emily can’t face her future anymore and moves away leaving Jaxon heartbroken.
This story is so powerful and full of emotion. Told from both points of view, we are given flash backs to the perfect lives they had before the accident, and also are given an emotional look at how both are dealing with the post-accident trauma and struggling to cope with life without each other.
This is the first part of a duet and I cannot wait for part two to come out as I’m desperate to know what the future hold for both Emily and Jaxon. They are both amazing characters who have had so much adversity in their lives and they really deserve a HEA, hopefully with each other.
