Summary

Ryan Steel is known in Snow Creek as the handsomest Steel brother with the most jovial personality. Now that his busy grape harvest and winemaking season is over, he's happy to spend time with his family and help his brothers, Talon and Jonah, celebrate their impending nuptials. The Steels are taking a well-deserved break from the conspiracy surrounding them...until an unlikely woman and a long-buried secret shatter Ryan's world.

Detective Ruby Lee has been on her own since she was fifteen. When her past collides with the Steel family's mysteries, she's determined to find the truth. She has her own issues, and she's not looking for a relationship, despite her all-consuming attraction to Ryan Steel. The gorgeous dark-haired man gets under her skin anyway...and he needs her.

Together they explore both of their histories, but those pasts could cost them a future.

There are no words...

seven books in and I am still on the edge of my seat. Book 8 awaits me and sweet Ryan so lost in all the mayhem around him. Another fantastic book. Highly recommended.

What a cliffhanger!

I have really enjoyed this series. There have been so many twists and turns and a story that is much much more than erotic romance. This book has been my favourite so far and I cannot wait to read the next installment I just wish I didn't have to wait!

Still none the wiser....brilliant!

A lot of stories you can know the plot in advance despite a few twists but still find it enjoyable. This series, I still have no real clue as to what is happening! I wanted to learn more about Ryan as he always was so laid back and loveable. I wasn't disappointed. Ruby is lovely. She is innocent but worldly at the same time and has known so much pain in her young life. I am definitely rooting for the pair of them. Some corker twists in this series!!

Not my favorite

Of all the stories in this series this has been my least favorite. I did how ever like the last 5 chapters. It was starting to get really good then just ended.

It dragged on throughout most of the story. Hope the next one is better.

Ryan

I enjoy reading love suspense but I believe this book was more about love than the suspense. Every time I feel like it was going good, the sex comes in. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy it but found myself skipping instead.

Overall, I love the book.

I cannot wait until the next book.

Another abrupt cliffhanger! Arghhhhhh!

Very well-defined deep back story that never seems to end. Ryan Steel and Ruby, 32 year old virgin, become unexpected lovers. Ruby loses her V card, and begins to make up for lost time. Scorching hot sex! the narrators were excellent, unlike books 4,5,6. but there is no book 8 or 9 on audio yet. I just hope to God they don't switch narrators again.

Disappointed

This book was so disappointing. What started as a very interesting series now seems like a story being dragged out.

I was SHATTERED by the end!

Shattered is an intense fast-paced continuation of the Steel Brothers saga focusing on the youngest, Ryan. In true Helen Hardt fashion, the story is expertly woven to keep you on the edge of your seat as you follow every twist and turn and surprise. I love the relationship between Ryan and Ruby and how they discover each other without really looking. By the time I got to the end my heart was racing. December is TOO far away! This is NOT a stand alone and the series should be read and listened to in order.

Intriguing storyline!

I stuck with this series just to find out how the story ended. I liked the characters, but found the sex scenes to be rather gratuitous and contrived. I would have liked more in-depth exploration of emotions and feelings and conversations between the couples. It was like "really, who acts like that?" In the middle of a horrible, emotional moment, in which I was just nauseated, the characters find it necessary to run off and f$&k! I'm all for some steamy sex scenes and romance, but these books fell way short on that in my opinion.

Brilliant Series!

Well, I need to talk about author, Helen Hardt. She has just blown my mind! I received "Craving" for free and it was fantastic, so I bought the remaining 8 books in the Steele Brothers Series. Then, I bought all 9 audiobooks because I love to listen to the voices. The narrators were perfect! The storyline was amazing; not what I was expecting at all. I love how a male narrator and female narrator took turns, back and forth. Each book tells part of the overall story, and it will keep you reading/listening till the end. No laggy parts. I highly recommend this brilliant series!

Much better

If you could sum up Shattered in three words, what would they be?

Intense, Romantic, Sad

Any additional comments?

The development of the story is so nice, so sad at the same time. The readers are much better this time than the Jonas story.
