Book Whisperer Rating:
In Relentless, college student Claire Nixon and surfer Adam Parker each had a painful past too heavy to carry alone. Claire tried to push Adam away, but Adam's relentless pursuit of her heart and her secrets made her walls come crumbling down.
Though their hearts will never be whole again, Claire and Adam now know they are stronger together than they are apart.
But now Claire's attending college a hundred miles away from Adam. With their relationship already hanging by a thread, Adam is sent to Hawaii on business.
And rock star Chris Knight is back in Claire's life.
Chris wants his ex-girlfriend back and he knows just how to get her: only he has the power to mend the final missing piece of Claire's broken heart. Now Claire must choose between a long-distance relationship with Adam and a second chance at love, family, and home.
What an emotional rollercoaster Leo just took me on! I can’t believe what I read just happened! Everything about this book tore me apart. Every main character made me want to hug them, then slap them, then I fell in love with them all over again. I was torn, right along with Claire, on who is the best man for her.
Some chapters were told from Adam’s POV and you truly got to see how in love Adam was with Claire. His love for her was so deep that when he went for Hawaii, it was like his life stopped. He could function on his daily tasks but it was like his spark was smothered when he could not be by Claire’s side. I also felt that I, as the reader, saw Adam really mature during this book. He is not only thinking about himself, but also thinking about Claire and their future together. (As you can tell, I am Team Adam.)
And then there was Chris. His chapter’s showed you his long love for Claire and how he was willing to fight to with every ounce of his being to get her back. He puts aside his career to hopefully start something again with Claire and possibly get his family back.
Oh my, poor Claire. My heart hurt from all the torture she has been through and what more she will have to endure. Leo writes her POV so perfectly that you see her struggling who is the right one for her.
Such a great second book in the “Shattered Heart” series and I cannot wait until the third and hopefully we can see what the future holds for Claire, Adam, Chris, and Abby.
