In the new series by Tiffany King, the USA Today bestselling author of the Woodfalls Girls novels, six friends—fresh from high school graduation—discover that the future can come at you from out of nowhere.
This is Mackenzie’s story…
Mackenzie Wilson once had hope for what life had to offer, but everything changed on the night of her graduation. A year later, the only way she can find comfort is by keeping her head down and hoping she remains unnoticed at college.
When Bentley James discovered Mac in that twisted SUV, he was just a newbie EMT on his first call. It was a gut-wrenching moment that made him realize not everyone can be saved—and sometimes they don’t want to be.
A chance encounter on campus brings Bentley back into Mac’s life. Despite her initial resistance, he sets out to discover the girl hiding beneath a shield of seclusion. He evokes painful memories in Mac—but also feelings. As the spark between them grows, Mac must decide if she can let go of the past and believe in something as fragile as love…
I absolutely LOVE Tiffany King. I finally had the pleasure of meeting her at ApollyCon. And I seriously "Fangirled" over her. I had to have someone introduce me to her and I swore I was a blabbering mess. LOL. But she was so sweet. Tiffany is on my "Must Buy" list. I have enjoyed everything she's written so I know she won't disappoint.
A Shattered Moment, to me was a bit different from her other stories. The name character Mackenzie was in such a dark place through a large portion of the book, that it was really sad to read. Usually her characters are upbeat and bubbly. But Mac was so hurt and damaged. She's definitely a unique character out of all the books I've read by Tiffany. But regardless of how different she is, she's a strong girl. And it was great to see her progress throughout the book.
First Tiffany gives you Mac, who you want to protect then she gives you Bentley. I absolutely LOVE him. He shows so much maturity for being a young college student. But the way him and Mac met was just so sad. He was one of the first responders when Mac and her friends got into a car accident. Then they bump into each other a year later and he just can't get enough of her. Though she wasn't having it at all with him, he didn't give up. The way Bentley handled Mac and everything that came with her made me wish he was a real person. He was so patient with her and so loving. So I was rooting for him.
Mac struggled a lot in this novel. But my god, poor girl went through hell. So I wanted to cut her some slack. But overall, she grew throughout the book and that made me happy for her. Tiffany threw in some twists from the beginning of the book that made me root for Mac right away. And then she threw some twists that made my jaw drop. I didn't see them coming and now I can't wait to read her next novel in this series.
As with every book I've read by Tiffany King. This book is an enjoyable read. Who doesn't want to read about a girl overcoming all odds and a guy that wants to take each step with her.
A Shattered Moment is a definite Good Choice for Reading!!
