Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts Series Book 2) by Nicole Banks – Review by Shannon Fowler

Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts #2)Into Pieces by Nicole Banks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Into Pieces is the conclusion to Jasmine and Angel’s story. This time around, Banks lets out all the demons that could possibly break Jasmine and Angel, together and separately. Their pasts are hard to read about but the story as a whole is easy to read as the plot moves quickly and sometimes unexpectedly. Banks ended the first book in this series with a twisted cliffhanger and this one is no different. I loved how even though this was Jasmine and Angel’s story we get to read about how Kris and Chase may one day get together! They are pretty hot themselves.

I recommend this story and can’t wait to read more about in this series and any other stories Banks may write!

5 ++++ Stars

OMG I loved this book, it was even better than the 1st one and I loved that one. This one brought out all kinds of emotions and fears and feelings.

This picked up right after book 1 and gave us so much, Im really loving the multiple pov’s. I wasn’t sure but I sincerely think I could read every book in that way. There’s no guessing about anyone and this author did it in a way you were never confused. This one delved a whole lot deeper into all the moving parts of this story and these characters, and that is another reason I love these books, you have your 2 main but you also get invested in many of the other characters as well.

I read this in one sitting because I sincerely could not put it down and in some spots I wasn’t sure if I could read it fast enough all the while not wanting it to end. I already have the next on my kindle and I’m so so so excited for that story, I already miss all of these people and I just finished this book.

I must add that you have to read these in order, I can’t imagine not having book 1 under my belt before reading this one or the next.

Many Thanks to this author for giving me another favorite series for this year, and another that I will definitely reread in the future.

Loved it!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Into Pieces by Nicole Banks is the second book in the Shattered Hearts series. You do need to read these books in order as this story is the first continuation of the story we began in book one.
This book does so much more for the characters then even the first one did. For me the first book was so emotional due to the nature of it. However this book showed the complexity and depth that the characters have and this leads on you on a such a journeys
The author really takes you for a ride as well. There are so Lang his and downs you really begin to questions whether or not this couple will make it. This is a brilliant book and I think everyone should read it.

Into Pieces is the second book in the Shattered Hearts Series by Nicole Banks. This is a continuation of Jasmine and Angels story that we started in book one. This book doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles, it is a fairly simple story- but it’s the characters and the emotional content which carry the story- with so much emotional content, this story really tugs at your heartstrings- all while we traverse all of the highs and lows alongside our main character. They have been through so much, and both have demons of their own to deal with- and I thought perhaps they may have it a little easier in this book- but Ms. Banks certainly made them ‘work for it’ as they faced their past and demons. They have grown, but haven’t yet learned to fully trust, or let down their barriers.
This book has a more raw, sinister, and suspenseful feel to it than the first- which gave it a little more intrigue for me- that, coupled with the emotional, angsty storyline makes this book my favourite so far.
Bring on book #3!

Thank you, Ms. Banks!

Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts #2)Into Pieces
By: Nicole Banks
My Rating: 3 of 5 stars

Into Pieces (Shattered Hearts Series Book 2) by Nicole Banks was an okay read that kept me reading.

The second book in this raw emotional read, it picks up where the last book left off. Following these characters over from that first book, which I did have some issues with, I was hoping that the MC’s would mature. As the two major subjects that this book covers, I was hoping for something more. As a serving member and a supervisor, I’ve seen, and have had to assisted with the issues persistent in this book. There were times that the author had it, I could see the growth, but there were others that I just sat back and shook my head. I still have problems with Angel, and I just, can’t get over the way he acted at times.

Overall this book wasn’t bad, the author does a wonderful job at expressing the characters emotions. Not just the MC’s but the side characters as well. The plot line is compelling, as we get more into the demons that both MC’s have and are carrying. That raw emotion is what kept me reading. Writing like that is hard to come by. So please take my recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will get caught up in this feels invoking read.

Happy Reading.

*****3.5 Stars*****

really really wanted to continue to enjoy this series. I just couldn’t. I don’t want to spoil the story for others so this will he a a spoiler free review.

INTO PIECES is the second book in the “Shattered Hearts Series” and begins almost exactly where part one left off. I would not recommend reading this as a standalone. There are a LOT of moving parts.

Told in multiple POVs, we are able to “hear” the inner workings of a character’s thought process. While this was an enjoyable way to read Book 1, in Book 2 it bothered me a LOT.

This book was simply not my cup of tea and I always appreciate when an author puts words on paper for the world to read.

I am invested enough that I will be reading book 3 of there series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shattered (Shattered Hearts Series Book 1) By Nicole Banks. This book is so aptly named because I definitely felt shattered while reading this story. I’m such a huge fan of stories that have the main characters going through hard to speak about subjects. But the author does a wonderful job of writing about subjects that can be haunting. This book may have triggers but it’s also a beautiful story of second chances and coming back from the worst circumstances. It’s told in multiple points of view which I love because I think it gives a fuller picture of what’s happening. Jasmine and Angel have a connection that I still fill even after finishing the last page. I can’t wait to see where the author takes readers next. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. With characters that I won’t soon forget. Five stars all the way!

This was an emotionally charged book. The emotions truly leapt off the page and overwhelmed me at times. Readers are rightfully warned of any potential triggers within the book.

Banks does a nice job with this next book in the series following Jasmine and Angel. I definitely recommend this book – it was engaging, enthralling, and very well written.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What an excellent start to the Shattered Hearts Series! I actually read this book twice in the matter of a week. While this story revolves around Jasmine and Angel, it ultimately is the story of a group of friends that have known each other forever and there are so many things going on, I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss anything before I start book 2!

Angel swore he would always be there for Jasmine. Since childhood, he has been her protector. But once he joins the marines, he can no longer uphold his promise and tragedy strikes, not only in Jasmine’s life but also in his own. Years later he returns home to find everything has changed. Jasmine is no longer the happy, innocent young girl he left, but a full grown woman that he can’t seem to resist. But there is too much baggage between the two of them that keeps pulling them apart. They each have one single act, one single moment in their lives that has irrevocably changed them. That has made one stop trusting others and one stop trusting themselves. One moment, that when it returns to your thoughts, terrifies you enough that it takes you to the depths of hell and back over and over – in your daydreams and in your nightmares. Can they fight their way through it all and finally be together? Or is it all just too much?

This book takes you on an emotional rollercoaster. You can feel the pain and suffering. You can feel it in your heart when they smile. And this is not the end. There is so much more to explore. What about Kate and Chase? What is Tony’s deal? Who is Marcus? I can’t wait to find out all the answers in the next two books in this series! I am completely emotionally invested in the lives of all these characters. Nicole Banks has me hooked!
