New Release, Giveaway & Review ~ SHATTERED BY YOU by Nashoda Rose

Crisis’ story is FINALLY here!


Amazon US
Amazon UK
Barnes & Noble :

What started out as a deal quickly became a friendship that conquered monsters.

I killed, but I escaped hell.
Emotionless. Disconnected. Cold. A mannequin. It’s what I’d become in order to survive the years held in captivity. I was able to endure the abuse and devastating loss as long as I remained detached.
But he wouldn't let me.
Crisis, the bass guitarist in my brother’s rock band, Tear Asunder. He’s cocky, rude, a total man-whore. But the rock star has far more beneath the surface of his inked skin, and he’s determined to make me laugh again.
He made me a "deal", but really, it was blackmail.
His terms were simple. Until his playful honesty became the building blocks to something unexpected. Something strong enough to pull me from the eye of the storm.
Because even though I escaped years of abuse, it didn’t mean I was free.

My Review
I’m in LOVE with Crisis. He is just everything in this book. Most books out right now are either the guy is all f’d up or the guy tries to fix everything to make the girl all better. That is NOT the case in this story. Crisis is not a mess AND he does not barge in a take control. What he does is so much better. So much more satisfying. He SUPPORTS his girl. He STANDS beside his girl while she fights her battles. He is secure enough in himself that he lets his girl figure things out for herself. He is AMAZING!
Who’s his girl? Haven. A girl that is lost in the past but so desperate to move on. A girl that has demons so large and so devastating that she is afraid that if they come out it will ruin someone very close to her. She is not afraid for herself because she feels like there is nothing left of her to be salvaged. That is until Crisis. Slowly but surely he draws out the REAL Haven. The one that was lost years ago. Makes her realize that SHE is worth fighting for. That SHE is important and loved.
This story will break your heart and mend it back together all at once. The terrible things that Haven had to endure while growing up seems too insurmountable to overcome, but she is strong. Stronger then she thinks. When she breaks, and she must in order for her to heal, will she be able to pick up the shattered pieces?
I love Nashoda’s writing. It is so genuine, so heartfelt. While the story itself seems crazy and unbelievable, the characters are real. Their bond is tangible. The Tear Asunder family might be unconventional, but they are a family! They will make you laugh and maybe cry. They will defiantly turn you on. And you will root for them…..because by reading their stories, you become a part of the family. You just can't help it.

I walked down the hall, pulled the elastic band on my boxers and glanced at my hard throbbing cock. “You’ll have to wait a little longer, buddy.”
“Are you really talking to your cock?”
I let go of the elastic and it snapped hard on my abdomen. Haven wasn’t making coffee; she was coming up the stairs with an armful of clothes. Fuck, she looked hot, long blonde hair messy as if she’d tossed and turned in her sleep, and she had sleepy eyes—adorable.
“Yeah. He’s angry this morning.” I stood right in the middle of the top of the stairs so if she wanted to get by, she’d need to brush up against me. It was childish, but fuck, I was a guy.
Her brows lifted. “Why is he angry?”
I smirked, loving that she was down for a little play. “Placed an ‘out of order’ sign on him.” Her brows drew together and her eyes flicked to my tented boxers.
“Doesn’t look out of order.”
I laughed and couldn’t help myself as I stroked the back of my hand down her cheek. It took her by surprise and she swayed backwards. I grabbed her arm before she toppled down the stairs and pulled her up onto the landing next to me.
A white piece of clothing slipped from the pile she was holding and fell at her feet. I smirked when I realized what it was, and took great pleasure in helping her out since there was no way she could bend over and get it without everything falling from her grasp.
I let her go and crouched, picking up the white lace panties. I held them out and her nose twitched like a rabbit sensing danger. “I like white. Prefer pink though, for future notice. And lace I love.”
She was trapped because if she snatched them from my hand, she’d drop the clothes and if she didn’t then . . . I curled them up in my palm.
“They aren’t mine,” she blurted.
God, she was cute. “Darlin’ I know they are and I love that you’re denying it. Means you care.”
Now that raised a little heat in her cheeks and I liked it. Shit, I liked it a lot because when I left a few months back, that would’ve never happened and now that was twice. She was affected by me—good to know. “I don’t care.”
I shrugged then turned to head back to my room to hide my newly acquired treasure. I had no doubt she’d search for them the second I left the house. I looked back over my shoulder and caught her eyes staring at my butt; could’ve been my back, but unlikely. Really, it didn’t matter which. I was just impressed she was eyeing me up.
“You can look, but don’t touch,” I said.
Her mouth dropped open then snapped shut. I disappeared around the corner, then heard her stomping down the hall. Haven wasn’t a stomper. She was graceful, elegant and controlled. Too controlled. And that part of her was coming down.
