Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts Series Book 2) By Nicole Banks. Just as shattering at book one, I was completely hooked from page one again. I highly recommend reading these in order. Once again this author writes on a subject most can’t even think about. And did a great job of it, the strength the author gives the characters blows me away. Jasmine is one of my favorite female characters this year, she come back to herself from the unthinkable. And we could all use a little Angel in our life. These two had me captured in their world. I love the multi POV it makes the story fuller. I’m so excited to read the next one. Well written and paced nicely, with incredible characters. Five stars all the way!
I’m not sure exactly where to begin with this one. There is just so much to this story! I fell in love with these people in book 1 and that carried on into book 2, only much, much deeper! My emotions were all over the place. Love, hate, anger, frustration, betrayal, shock…I’m fairly certain that at several points while reading this book my heart ACTUALLY STOPPED! It felt like it was being ripped right out of my chest! This author gives you absolutely everything.
The chemistry between the characters is off the charts. Angel and Jasmine. Kate and Chase. You find yourself rooting for them, cheering them on, feeling their emotions as intimately as if they were your own. We finally find out the answers to many of the questions that were hanging from book one, but be prepared! You may not want to know them all! Some of these truths will hurt…and quite frankly make you want to punch the author in the face at times! LOL!
I don’t want to say too much about the story and give anything away. If you love well developed characters, romance, and suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat, then start reading! Just make sure you read book one, Shattered, first. Nicole Banks has quickly become a go to author for me and I will most definitely be reading anything she puts out! I can’t wait to start book 3 of this series and see where this journey is going to take me next!

Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts Series Book 2)
By Nicole Banks
5 out of 5 stars!
Nicole Banks has once again entranced me into the lives of Jasmine and Angel as they struggle not to fall apart as they stumble through hell. This second book told me more about each character and the ways that they impact the story as a whole. I was treated to a more personal side of the lives and love shared between Jasmine and Angel. This book took me on a ride from one end of the emotional roller coaster to the other while keeping me on the edge of my seat.
I highly recommend this book! There is some sexual content so this read is absolutely for mature audiences only. Grab your copy today and join me and other readers on a wonderful Nicole Banks journey.

I have read a few books from this author and she keeps on surprising me. I absolutely love her writing style. She makes you feel like you are in the book with these characters. This is the second book in the shattered heart series. You do have to read the first book or you will be lost. I was so excited when I got this book I dropped everything and started to read it immediately. It only took me a few hours to devour this incredible book.
Jasmine and Angle are so happy that they found each other again. They are giving this relationship a huge try. Jasmine is still fighting her demons from that horrible night long ago. When she starts getting crazy texts she knows something is up. She goes to one of her friends for help but she doesn’t know that he is helping her demon. Jasmine thinks she can handle this herself but she doesn’t realize how close her past is to her. She goes to Angle but he also has past demons he is trying to get through. Will Jasmine and Angle be able to stop their demons or will it be too late?
I absolutely loved this book. The storyline has it all romance, suspense, and some mystery. You can’t help but to fall in love with these characters once again. Jasmine is a very tough woman but she wants to be loved. Angle is willing to do whatever it takes to see Jasmine happy. These characters have some steamy scenes that will make your temperature rise. This talented author will keep you at the edge of your seat until the end. There is also a couple of scenes that may trigger some readers. This book is for a mature audience. I can’t wait to see what will happen next.

Into Pieces is another fantastic addition to the Shattered Hearts Series, this series is not to be missed at all. I was completely and utterly captivated with this read just as much as the first, but there was something different about this read in the case of it feeling like it went deeper, the emotions that run through this book are so deep and real you can’t help but feel as though you are there alongside the characters or even if you were feeling all the emotions yourself.
This book is made even better by the fact it’s written in dual POV’s it really helps you connect more with the characters and also understand what they really are thinking and feeling.
These books are so captivating & real it’s a book that you can’t wait to delve into every time. I cant wait to see what else is to come to this series and I look forward to another read by this incredible author.

UGH!! Where do I even start with Into Pieces? First of all, I cannot say enough good things about this book but I will start with the gorgeous cover! If I hadn’t already read book one I would have grabbed this novel without even knowing what it was about. I had to have this book once I finished book one, Shattered. I was lucky in that I read that only recently so I didn’t have the dreaded wait it seems for some, a thing I am glad about.
This book really reached the high expectations that book one set and actually for me in some ways exceeded it. I loved the dark almost thriller like undertone that kept me intrigued and on my toes as I fell in love with Jas and Angel. These two really tore me apart, literally ‘into pieces and slowly put me back together. Its beautifully written even in the dark parts. I can’t wait to see what we will get with book three. I can only expect that it will be just as fabulous as the first two.

Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts Series Book 2) by Nicole Banks is the second book in the Shattered Hearts Series and a book I couldn’t put down till the end. This is the continuation of Jasmine and Angel’s story. I do recommend reading the first book if you haven’t already. Both feel broken and are dealing with demons.There is definitely attraction and chemistry between them. Will they learn to trust each other? Can they have a future together? I found myself at times on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what happens next. Find out what happens next. I highly recommend reading this book. I can’t wait to read more from this Author.
Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts Series Book 2) by Nicole Banks. This is the second book in this series and its amazing. Fair warning, It’s not for the faint of heart. Its the continuation of Jasmine and Angel’s story. This book is better than story 1 because you get more in to the emotional side. Jasmine is becoming a stronger women in this book and Angel just wants to help her heal from the past. The horrible event that happened to her is still causing her pain but she is trying to heal and move on. Angel is trying to get over the guilt of feeling like he should have done more to save her from the attack. We are introduced to another couple in this book that I hope to read more about; Chase & Kris. They seem super fun! I just can’t wait for the next book to see how Jasmine & Angel have grown as a couple.

Amazing read! I loved the first book. And you must know you cannot read these out of order!
I love these 2 main characters and the secondary ones as well, but Angel and Jasmine are kind of my favorite right now. They’ve been through so much apart and now they are trying to navigate how to be a couple without unloading all their baggage onto the other for fear of setbacks or scaring off the other.
Lots of things happen in this book and it had me turning pages so fast to read all the words.
Great read can’t wait to see what happens with the next book with this group.
Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts Series Book 2) by Nicole Banks continues from book 1 and I must say I enjoyed this part of the story than the first. It is well written and it is about real life problems and the angst of love. It is a story where all your emotions are out on display right along with the characters. The characters are more developed and you could feel that Nicole really put her emotions in them as well. This heart wrenching, soul searing and yet beautiful story will leave you wanting more. It also features our next couple in the romance department and it will be just as interesting read I am sure as this one was.
Jasmine and Angel and finally got their shit together and decided to work as a couple but as we all know falling in love and nothing is ever a walk in the park. They still have a lot of work to do on themselves and as we know taking a good hard look at yourself in the mirror is never a pleasant thing. Just when Jas thought her life was safe the horrors of her past are once again front and centre and taking its hold of her and threatening everyone she loves and her own sanity.
I look forward to reading Chases’ and Kris’ story next, I just know it will blow us away.
