When it rains it pours….
Hard-nosed and self-reliant Dallis O'Brien has had her fair share of devastation. Her father's tragic accident sparked what seemed like a domino effect of heartbreak and loss. Unable to shake the fear of enduring any more pain, she builds walls around her heart, hoping to heal on her own.
Dallis' road to recovery is disrupted when she meets Grayson Rivera, a tattooed, coffee shop owner who, by appearances alone, isn't her typical match. Stubborn and hesitant to let him in, Dallis finally succumbs to Grayson's persistence, where he challenges her to face her loss while also having the walls of her heart broken down.With Grayson's assistance, Dallis must decide if she is willing to learn how to be weak in order to be strong.
About the author...
Just a book reading, writing loving, mommy and USMC wife! :)
I love to write, even if it isn't what is conventional and makes everyone feel giddy inside. I usually pull from dreams, or ideas that just thrust themselves into my head. I have what some would describe as a dry sense of humor, and I think its conveyed in my writing. I like to think I am a kick ass chick, but I can also be sensitive. I'm learning to grow thick skin, and in this field, it is definitely needed!I won't put anything out that I am not absolutely proud of, but like E.L. James said, "I can't own people's reactions to it." Thanks for reading my work... I do appreciate it!

Review ~ 5 Stars
Five amazing stars, that says it all right there. There is hardly ever a book that I absolutely do not want to put down, but this one was it. Shattered follows Dallis, a young photographer starting at a tragic loss in her life. This girl is tough as nails, but also very kindhearted. She is with the wrong guy for half of the story and with one chance meeting, her world is flipped upside down with confusion. What she doesn't realize is this tattooed up charmer is her ticket to finally getting over her horrible past. Grayson seems like someone Dallis should avoid but there is an undeniable chemistry between the two, and once she opens up slightly to him, she realizes they have more in common than you would think. These common threads have Grayson pushing Dallis to finally mourn and heal her soul. Grayson says, "But you're not alone, Dallis. I'm trying to show you that. I'm right here. I've been where you are. I want to help you get through this, but you've got to be willing to let me in." Who wouldn't want this guy helping them heal?? C.C. Brown certainly brought all the characters to life for me and I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. Amazing book, and I look forward to any future work from Brown.~Kelly
