5.0 out of 5 stars A love that won't give up 23 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Can two broken people make a whole heart? Claire has a past that holds back all happiness like an anchor holds a boat at sea. Finding solace in meditation Claire strives daily to move forward...anchor and all...that is until she meets Adam. Dealing with his own Angry Demons Adam tries constantly to woo Claire with his charm and very sad collection of jokes.

Slowly but surely Claire and Adam chip away at the walls around each of their hearts. But just when things start to feel safe and moving in the right direction, both their pasts come back to test them.

A beautifully written story that will tug at your heart strings. With every story Ms Leo writes I develop a greater respect and love for her work. Thank you for sharing your beautiful stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic read 5 Jan 2014

Relentless (Shattered Hearts #1)
by Cassia Leo

Claire Nixon's life has been full of heartache so when she breaks up with her boyfriend Chris and encourages him to follow his dream of becoming a rock star she is left broken hearted. When Adam moves into the apartment above her he chases her until she goes out with him and they begin dating. Both Claire and Adam are haunted by their pasts and have secrets that they keep to themselves but can they find the trust in the other to let their secrets out?
Nothing is a straightforward when all hell is let loose when Claire's past catches up with her.

Poor Claire has been through so much in her life and just seems to struggle by, she is a loveable character that pulls at your heart strings. Adam is cocky but deep down he is full of guilt and sorrow and also had anger issues in the past, he is quite deep and is very sexy with it.
Reading this you just knew that everything was going to come out but what did come out wasn't what I had expected, there is also lots of drama in this book. I loved reading it and I will be going straight onto book 2. I am so glad I don't have to wait for it! All the characters are great I would really like to know a bit more about Chris too maybe that will be in future books.

This is well written and a really entertaining plot that will have you sucked in from the begining till the very end.

I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

5 stars for Amazon & 5 stars for Goodreads

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of secrets 23 Sep 2013
By jules
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a story about Claire , she is a kind hearted person , who was dealt a difficult hand. Her mum was a drug addict who died of an overdose when she was a child and that meant that she ended up in care, and had numerous foster homes until she finally found peace with the knight household. The story begins when she is twenty, still haunted by her past and by the secret of what occurred a year ago causing her to drop out of college. The author slowly unveils her secret but ends the book with lots of unresolved decisions, so I can't wait to get on with book two.

5.0 out of 5 stars need to know what happens next! 10 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Claire is hiding a secret, and Adam makes a bet that if he can get her to reveal the secret, then Claire has to go back to school.
Claire doesn't think that Adam will win his bet, after all, she's kept this secret for the past year, and only her best friend knows.
Claire hasn't had the best start in life, living in various foster homes, and finds it hard to trust people. At first she is very guarded with Adam, but he's so easy going and makes her laugh, and eventually he breaks down her walls. When her secret comes out though, there are some skeletons in her closet, and one of them isn't going to go quietly.

I loved this book, I felt for Claire when I read the kind of life that she has had, and she's dealt with a difficult situation on her own (although she does have her best friend Senia). I loved how Claire and Adam were together, how their relationship built and how supportive he is of her. After the revelations that came out, I can't wait to see what's in store for them in the next book!

3.0 out of 5 stars quick pleasant read 14 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Claire has a big secret and Adam has a big secret, both of them are being held back blaming themselves for the past. They meet when he moves into the flat above her and they help each other deal with past, swiftly falling in love. Chris, Claire's ex, finds out her secret, what she's been keeping from him and makes a play to get her back. Claire is left with two men professing their love for her while she is confused and doesn't know which way to turn.
I was a bit surprised about Claire's big secret, yes it's very important for the storyline, but she was making such a fuss about it that when it's revealed I immediately though 'is that it?'. I got a bit frustrated with Claire's actions, she may be naive but she isn't stupid. Adam irritated me a little but thankfully Chris was entertaining. The continual 'I love yous' get a bit nauseating.
A pleasant quick read but improves as the series continues. I get a little annoyed when a story is split into so many books when it could have been covered in one, such as this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest review given 13 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
"With every choice you risk the live you would have had. With every decision you lose it" - Claire
Claire is a 20 years old college drop out who has a huge secret. She moves away from the only place that ever felt like home to her out of guilt for what she did to her first love and the huge secret she carries.
Claire's past is extremly rough. She watched her mother die when she was seven of a drug overdose and she went from foster home to foster home until she meets Chris' family. He'll then become her first love, her lifeline, the one who helps her cope. She joins college but he wants to make it into the music industry so she decides to break up with him so he can live the life how he wants to not wanting to hold him back.
A year later, Claire moved away from Raleigh, still feeling guilty about what happened with Chris. Her only way to cope is meditation which she uses a lot. Enters Adam, who also carries a huge secret. They find comfort in each other but their secret could tear them apart. They have to trust each other to reveal their seccret to each other. Is their love strong enough to get past their secret when they unravel?
"You're perfect", he insists as he grabs my face and forces me to look him in the eye. "Just the right amount of flaws." - Adam
I really loved this book. Up until the end it had me guessing what the big secrets were and boy was I way off!
I really liked the characters, they were believable and attaching, I could really connect with them, even though Claire was getting a bit on my nerves with taking so long to reveal her big secret but that's just me being impatient!
It was my first book by Cassia Leo and certainly not the last.
