You’ll make it out of here, Brian. I swear.
I had everything—school quarterback, popular with girls, and my dad was proud of me. I told myself it didn’t matter no one knew the real me. And then I nearly died. Landon saved my life. He’s the bravest guy I know. He came out a few years ago, proud and fierce, and he ran into gunfire to help others. Me, I’m a mess. Can’t even stand to be in a room with the curtains open. But here’s the thing about losing it all: You get a chance to start over and be someone new. Only how can I move on when the two shooters who attacked our school were never caught? And why do I feel like I’m still in the crosshairs?
Will you kiss me?
When I came across Brian Marshall, the hottest guy in school, dying on the cafeteria floor, I did what anyone would do. I tried to save him. His request surprised me, but I figured he needed comfort, so I kissed him on the forehead. When he survived and came back to school, he was broken in body and mind. He still needed me, and soon we were unlikely besties. But what I saw at school that day woke me up. I want to demand action on gun control, lead protests, raise my fist. I’ll tear the world down if I have to. And if I can get the man of my dreams and save the world at the same time? I’ll take it. Only I didn’t understand that the horror at Jefferson Waller High wasn’t over.
My Rating - 5 Stars!
From the very first second, I was hooked, and knew this was going to be a one sitting kind of book. I was right.
Eli's bravery to write a story based on such a tragic and realistic event is to be applauded. She approached this story with tact and tenderness, managing to create an emotional and heart-wrenching story.
The hardest part of this book is remembering that it's fiction, but then realizing this has pretty much happened to real people. Gut wrenching. And inspirational the way people can be so brave and help save people is amazing.
After the event itself, we are taken on a journey of fighting for gun control, and a search for the shooters. It's compelling, with two young men who are beyond amazing. The way they respond to the events are well done.
The best part by far is the way Brian and Landon find peace in one another after that horrific day. I had anticipated their love being based on Landon falling for the man who saved him. I have never been more happy to have been wrong. Their is so much more to their developing relationship than that, as that is more of a catalyst than a reason.
Boy Shattered is not a happy read, but it is a stellar read. Eli Easton has outdone herself with this one!
Eli has loved romance since her teens and she particular admires writers who can combine literary merit, genuine humor, melting hotness, and eye-dabbing sweetness into one story. She promises to strive to achieve most of that most of the time. She currently lives on a farm in Pennsylvania with her husband, bulldogs, cows, a cat, and lots of groundhogs.
In romance, Eli is best known for her Christmas stories because she’s a total Christmas sap. These include “Blame it on the Mistletoe”, “Unwrapping Hank” and “Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles”. Her “Howl at the Moon” series of paranormal romances featuring the town of Mad Creek and its dog shifters has been popular with readers. And her series of Amish-themed romances, Men of Lancaster County, has won genre awards.
In 2018 Eli hopes to do more of the same, assuming they reschedule the apocalypse.
