Book Review: Bring Me Home

Bring Me Home (Shattered Hearts) by Cassia Leo: Claire Nixon is a college student with a past full of secrets and heartbreak. She was saved once by her first love, and rock star, Chris Knight. But when she encouraged Chris to leave town to pursue his dreams, both Claire and Chris didn't realize it would be the biggest mistake of their lives.

After a devastating year apart and thousands of miles of distance between them, Claire met sexy surfer Adam Parker. With his awful jokes and profound patience, he helped Claire pick up the shattered pieces of her broken heart for the second time.

But now Chris has returned and he is willing and determined to make Claire’s dreams come true—the same way she did for him when she let him go.

With Adam’s former girlfriend in the picture, Claire finds herself torn between the new, passionate love she shares with Adam and the love and family she shares with Chris.

TeriLyn's thoughts: Bring Me Home was an excellent ending to the Shattered Hearts series. Claire, Chris, and Adam were all great characters. I was worried going in that there would be a lot of love triangle drama and I'm thankful there was not. All the characters showed their maturity and made their choices. Claire and Adam especially showed growth from when we met them in Relentless. They were holding on to a lot of issues and not making any strides towards healing and moving on. Rather they were using each other to numb. However, in Bring Me Homey hey moved forward, towards acceptance. All three of them plus Lindsay too grew and moved on the best they knew how. For people so young Adam, Chris, and especially Claire learning the power of forgiveness is healing; not only forgiving others but forgiving oneself. This story made for great, easy reading. Acceptance and love are major themes here. Cassia Leo's writing draws you into this world and makes you feel for these characters and their struggles. There were a couple of times when I couldn't wrap my mind around Claire and didn't always agree with her decisions but I still felt for her. That's a testament to the excellent story telling of this author. The epilogues were great. I especially liked Adam's; I always had a soft spot for him. Great Series.
