Broken Dreams (Shattered Lives, Book One)

Broken Dreams (Shattered Lives, Book One) by Rissa Blakeley

Elaina Cooper’s world was turned upside down on what was supposed to be the happiest day of her life. She was about to marry Henry Daniels, the man of her dreams -- or so she thought. Just as she was to walk down the aisle, screams pierced the air. 

In the days that followed, questions lingered in Elaina’s mind. Why did Henry seem to know so much about what was happening? And why did she feel like he was keeping secrets from her? Henry knew that his haunted past would eventually catch up to him…in more ways than one. Through all of this, he must face his demons, and Elaina must decide whether she can accept who he is. Henry is determined to fight to the very end to make their sexy, mercurial relationship work no matter what staggers in their path. 

Along with their ragtag band of survivors, they must travel south to face Henry’s fears. There will be joys and loss but, in the end, is love enough to hold them together?

3.0 out of 5 stars zombiesOctober 26, 2014
This review is from: Broken Dreams (Shattered Lives, Book One) (Kindle Edition)
This was an interesting take on a zombie novel. There was romance (sort of). I'll start with the cons-
-I got annoyed by the constant "flashbacks" about the 'before' .. it dragged down the story. It made getting through it hard. I found myself just skipping ahead to the 'now' parts and the action.
-I was not a fan of the fact that they all kept repeating "True Dead" - apparently some show.. once or twice was ok, but to CONSTANTLY mention, ugh.
-I can see this being a series, and it should have been. I felt that this was too long. Maybe halfway through, this could have been turned into book 2. Things changed so much that at times I felt like I was reading a different book.

- I love zombie books and this had a lot of them.
-There was some great action and I loved seeing how the characters all changed to accomodate the new life.
-The introduction of new characters as the story went on kept it interesting
-I can see this being a series. I wish it had been broken into shorter books
-The twists and turns in the plot were awesome, and what kept me reading.

If you want a book you can lose yourself in for days, then grab this book! Lots of zombies, action and some sexiness!
