    When I requested this book for review, I had no idea if this was the first edition or not, and I ve never read any title written by this author before The blurb sounded amazing, it piqued my curiosity, so I decided to go with it Under Acknowledgments, the author tells us this is the third printing, which made me wonder why a book would need re released so many times I found out soon enough.The book starts with a scene between Hunter and his best friend lover having a fight then having angry make up sex While I thought the scene wasn t necessary at all because we know Taylor is not Hunter s love interest in this story, it didn t bother me either until it became confusing There s talk of Hunter loving rimming Taylor, but nobody was getting rimmed It came out of nowhere and it made me wonder if the author forgot to write that particular detail in the sex scene I shrugged it off as a mistake and went on reading.We know from the blurb that Hunter has a stalker who writes him threatening notes to expose his sexuality to the media, but the way the whole thing was handled was bizarre Forget about the cops solving the case or anything the cops weren t even involved until way past the halfway mark, and even then, they didn t do anything.MacGyver Donovich is the reporter investigator detective smarty pants mystery solver as well as Hunter s love interest After he meets Hunter for the first time and they have a brief talk about the incident of Hunter s attack, Mac meets his friends whom are in a relationship for a threesome This sex scene is long, takes out a pretty good chunk of this book, and I wish it wasn t there, because it doesn t contribute anything to this story line So now we re at the halfway mark, we watched both MCs have sex with different people, but not with each other since they just met there s only half a book left to establish a relationship, a connection, anything really, between Mac and Hunter, and it s not enough to make it believable I couldn t feel any chemistry between Mac and Hunter they meet and a few days weeks it s not clear exactly the passage of time later they re developing feeling for one another We get a sex scene or two between them, but it s just that sex No emotional connection or feelings of any kind that the reader can relate to This book needs at least one round of editing, and considering this is the third printing, it s not acceptable The author thanked her proof reader in the Acknowledgements part, but she should be hiring someone different, because this book still has too many typos Conscience instead of conscious , juice instead of juicy are just a couple that come to mind, but there were There are also awkward phrases, like He had a bent towards telling the real story I know what it s supposed to mean, but I ve never seen it expressed that way I m not even sure if it s correct or not, but it was weird enough to pull my focus from the story Some sentences are not finished, for example this And now after all the shit I did for this goddamn town and all the fucking sacrifices I made and after all the money the groups of asshole made on me On me what happened after all that Is it left open for interpretation, is it not finished for a reason I m not sure what to think, other than the author had something on her mind she wanted to express, but got lost somewhere along the way And last but not least, this book is in desperate need of some commas As it is, it sounds robotic.Reading the sex scenes between Hunter and Mac was like watching a porn there s just about the same amount of connection between the fucker and the fuckee I m sure that s probably not a word, but that s what came to mind That wouldn t have been so bad because this isn t the first book I ve read that failed to deliver the chemistry between the characters, but there are some awkward and unrealistic things happening there, as well as an expression that made my nose wrinkle in disgust From somewhere in deep his inner beast roared, wanting nothing than to drink every drop of the man s cum until it filled the haunted cavities of his soul Cum filled soul cavities are not appealing as he continued using his strong jaw muscles to clamp around Mac s shaft When he pulled his fingers from his mouth, a small popping sound occurred this could ve been written reader friendly by saying he pulled his fingers from his mouth with a pop As if sensing his lover was about to erupt, Mac squeezed his jaw muscles around Hunter s cock while he rolled his balls between his fingers. how does someone squeeze their jaw muscles around a dick, or anything really Aren t the jaw muscles on the outside on the maxillary, nearly overlying the third molars, therefore making it impossible to squeeze them around anything Sure, we can use our throat muscles around a penis for a fantastic blow job, but certainly not the jaw muscles This book was a great idea that was unfortunately poorly executed Sometimes we just have to accept that it s not meant to be and the 3rd time is not a charm.

    Title ShatteredAuthor Cassandre DayneGenre New Adult, Erotic, M M RomanceSeries or Standalone Standalone Rating 3 StarsReview ARC generously provided by publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I actually came across this story myself on Netgalley, while looking for different things to read The cover was enticing, the blurb even so and considering I can handle male on male stories, having written one myself albeit a YA version , I was ready to jump in This book was hard for me to get through and I hate that I have to say that It had all the makings of pretty spectacular book quite frankly, but there were quite a few inconsistencies that stood out to me that in the end, left me struggling to finish it Now, as a reader and reviewer, I don t actively look at the editing of a book I really don t I suppose if I came across a story that was just fraught with issues, I might have to look at it, but for the most part, I mean, as long as everything flows, I can get behind the characters and there s a great story being told, I m golden This is the exception It would jump at times and in such an unclear way that I had trouble keeping up I would have to go back, read over what I had just read to make sure it wasn t my brain skipping parts or just not letting words sink in Having to do that, takes away from the story for me and it did it quite a bit here In terms of steam level in regards to the love scenes throughout the book, I have to give the author her due They were written quite well And even though I had issues with some of the characters at times, they did come across as real people, and in no way one dimensional, or like cardboard cut outs There were redeeming qualities apart from the things I ve mentioned above, and because reading is subjective and I happened to be in an editing mode on my book while I read this , you might want to pick it up and give it a shot yourself and see how it works for you You may find it all worked for you where it didn t for me, and if that s the case, that s great It just didn t hit the mark for me personally.That being said, I did manage to come across a new author in this journey, and that can never be a bad thing Especially when there s a library of her other works just waiting around the bend to be read.

    This book would have warranted a 4.5 if not for all the errors throughout the book One or two is not so bad, but constantly I couldn t let it pass I m just too damn anal about these things The story, the plot and even the action was sublime, but a great editing of it would have made this story downright mint.

    I really hate giving this book 2 stars It had so much potential and I actually liked the story HOWEVER and this is a huge sticking point, the editor should be fired for doing such a horrible job cleaning up after the author.

    I enjoyed this book mostly because it was a gay romance surrounded by mystery and intrigue Just as nothing is perfect in real life, neither are the lives of the characters here Mac and Hunter both have deep seated anxieties rooted in the past.This is the third edition of Shattered and I m not sure if that is due to changes in publishing or if there was editing work done with the story There are a few typos but nothing too major As a shorter read, Dayne has packed a lot of punch into these pages A lot happens in a short amount of time I felt like there were a number of things that weren t fully resolved for the reader Mac s past ghosts aren t completely exorcised while of the focus is on revealing clues from Hunter s past How and why Christopher was seeking retribution against Hunter wasn t totally explained especially since Hunter and his father really have no relationship in the current timeline of the story The thing that confused concerned me the most was wanting to know why Hunter s father allowed encouraged his son s attack rape so many years in the past There were elements that weren t resolved regarding the crimes that are the action and backdrop of this romance Hunter heals from his disfiguring attack in record time and unlike real life his beauty is completely restored by the end of the book I also just have to note that Mac sure hisses a lot Ha ha It s still a good read with an interesting scenario and characters I received this ARC edition through NetGalley.

    Hunter is a well known actor with deep dark secret one that he does not want to come out He has been hiding his true sexual nature for so long that the thought of I getting out is causing his relationship with Taylor to turn bitter Not only does he have his career to think about but it seems that Hunter is also the target of a madman bent on making all gay me pay and lose the thing they love the most Mac a reporter who usually does fluff pieces has been working the serial beatings of these gay men and it is hitting a little close to home for him dredging up things in his past he would rather remain buried as well When Mac is sent to interview Hunter he is shocked at the savagery as well as inexplicably turned on Hunter sees the hidden pain in Mac s eyes and is also drawn to him With a madman on the lose no one is safe While Mac ties to drawn the guy out he also wants to keep Hunter safe Trying to uncover the identity of this person is not easy but it must be done When secrets come out how will their worlds ever be right again Will the one who is hunting them get his revenge in the end or will they be able to stop him in time Can these two men who have hidden behind masks for so long finally come out and be themselves Not only that but can they truly find happiness once and for all
