When you’re born you never know what life will throw at you. You just make the best of it no matter what happens. That’s pretty much been my go-to since infancy. Then the charming, bald headed, blue eyed, Brent came along and I thought all the suck in life had been flushed down the drain. Ha! That’s when my true journey began—motherhood.

This is my story, on how I took life by the go-nads when I decided I needed closure from my past—my father’s sudden death in particular. But what happens next wasn't anything I expected… It’s hopeless… shattering….exciting … scary…joyful…priceless… and I owe it all to one man... Bear, a chapter president of the Sacred Sinners Motorcycle Club.

 My thoughts…


Hopelessly Shattered is a quick read but, so much happens in this one book. Thank goodness, I had book two, Hopeful Whispers, available to read right away.

Katrina is a strong, independent mother who hasn’t had a very happy or easy life. She is raising her two daughters by herself on a librarian pay, she is also pregnant with her third child. Every month she receives an envelope with no return address containing cash from her daughter’s father, Brent. Brent was once her next-door neighbor and then became more, she was so happy raising their daughters together and was in love. Until Brent broke her heart leaving her a note saying he couldn’t do this anymore. She never saw Brent again.

Kat is searching for answers regarding her father’s death, he died in a car accident with the car exploding. In her search, Kat is contacted by Bear. Bear has the answers to her questions, but she must travel to Texas to get those answers, as he is the Chapter President of the Sacred Sinners Motorcycle Club and cannot leave.

Kat leaves her daughters with her mother, who wasn’t really a mother to her growing up until her father died. When she arrives in Texas to meet with Bear, she walks into a biker clubhouse only to come face to face with not one but two people from her past who lied to her.

The story is told as if Kat was there beside you, telling her story. For me, I didn’t particularly care for that style of writing but, it grew on me as the story progressed. Hopelessly Shattered was very entertaining with some shocking moments thrown in as well. There is cheating involved, every time that was happening I just wanted to yell at Kat, it was frustrating. I enjoyed Kats character, she isn’t afraid to stand up for what she wants, she can also be sweet, kind and very forgiving. Kat did aggravate me at times, she let Brent take advantage of her time and time again, she never seemed to have a backbone with regards to him. Brent, I just wanted to smack him upside the head, multiple times while reading this… ugh. I adored Kade, he was my favorite character. This book brought out plenty of emotions.

Happy Reading -J

**Spoilers**


Katrina goes to Texas to meet with Bear, she walks into a biker clubhouse only to come face to face with not one but two people from her past who lied to her. One is Brent, her daughters father. Brent was just an alias he used with Kat. His real name is Ryker and he was sent to watch over Kat when her father died. He wasn’t supposed to get involve with her, he did, and then he left her by a note, choosing the club over Kat. Now, Ryker is married to Vanessa and she is pregnant with his child. Kat is also pregnant with her third child from Ryker, yup, you read that correctly. Kat and Vanessa are about a month apart. Ryker went to Kat’s house late one evening, had sex, and made a bunch of promises to her, he never returned the next day leaving her once again heartbroken. Her dad is not only alive but, he is now in a loving relationship with Bear, Sacred Sinners MC Chapter President, Ryker and Kade’s father.
