Book Description

Sometimes, letting someone into your heart is the bravest risk to take.



Claire Nixon is a twenty-year-old college dropout with a secret she’ll never tell. Then she meets sexy Adam Parker. Claire knows the flirting is harmless, but guys like Adam mean trouble. Then a seemingly innocent comment spurs a bet between them: if Adam can get Claire to reveal the secret that made her leave her college and her life behind, she has to re-enroll.



Claire’s sure she can win. She's perfected the art of forgetting her past. But she isn't prepared for Adam's relentless pursuit, and she's definitely not prepared when her first love, rock-star Chris Knight – and her heartbreaking secret ­– comes banging down her door…



You can also read books two and three in the Shattered Heart series – Pieces of You and Bring Me Home.



New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language, drug reference, and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.



Product Description

Review

"Relentless is one of those books that I place on the shelf with The Sea of Tranquility and Ruining Me. That shelf is my shelf of greatness." (Romantic Reading Escapes)

"[Pieces of You is a] deeply emotional and skillfully written story of learning to listen to one's heart and finding all the missing pieces of oneself within one's heart, rather than in the love of another person." (Natasha is a Book Junkie)

"Cassia Leo's conclusion to the Shattered Hearts series, Bring Me Home, can be summed up with one word: perfection." (Sinfully Sexy Books)

Book Description

The heart-stopping, addictive first book in bestselling author Cassia Leo's new adult Shattered Heart series.

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.

**** EROTICA BOOK CLUB REVIEW ****

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 Sept. 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 Relentless 24 Jan. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I had previously read one book by Cassia Leo, Black Box, which I had loved as a beautifully tender, soul-clenching story. There are similarities to the first of this Shattered Hearts series (as published by Transworld in the UK and Australia), as although it is a love story, there are serious undercurrents and damaged souls as well as shattered hearts.

The Shattered Hearts Series is stated to be an adult contemporary romance series, and whilst it feels a little bit like a YA book, it is not intended for readers under the age of 18 due to strong language, drug reference and sexual content (of which there is quite a lot!).

Cassia Leo has a way of writing which draws you in and it is so easy to visualise the scene playing out on the page in front of you, almost as though you're sat watching a movie. The characters are memorable and special and the storyline is strong (although there was one element that nagged at me, and I do not want to give anything away so I will just say that when Claire's secret does come out in a fairly public way, I could not believe that nothing was made of it in the media given that Chris, a rock-star, clearly had a huge fan base and no doubt, media, following. It clearly was not the way the story was going to go, but it just bugged me given the world we live in now).

I loved the way the relationship was built between Adam and Claire as they together battle their demons and, at this stage, there was no doubt in my mind as to who I wanted Claire to end up with.

I was very glad to have the the second in the series, Pieces of You, on my kindle so that I could drive straight into that next instalment.

Thank you to NetGalley and Transworld for the free copy of Relentless which was provided in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Start 24 April 2014
Format:Paperback
Thank you to Transworld and NetGalley for approving me to review this.

This is the first story by author Cassia Leo that I had ever read. The cover drew me to the book because it states straight off two things I really enjoy in a book, it’s written in the new adult genre and it’s part of a series. Cassia is also a New York Times best-selling author which usually means that you’re in for a good story.

The story is all about Claire. She has a troubled, not so distant past, but through meditation she is managing to keep it under control, that is until Adam moves in upstairs. Adam is persistent in his pursuit of Claire and she finds herself torn between handing herself over to him and keeping her past a secret.

The narrative is all from Claire’s POV which is quite good because her character is quite mysterious and when it comes to her past there is quite a lot of development throughout the story to build it up. I liked that Claire’s past wasn’t revealed to you straight away but instead you get to learn a little but more about her as Adam does.

Adam also has a bit of a dark past but his character is the opposite to Claire’s in that he is a lot more open when it comes to sharing his secrets. His openness sets Claire free bit by bit until she is pushed to the brink when someone else reveals her secret to everyone.

It was quite a quick but enjoyable read. I found it a little annoying that Claire had such a habit of drinking water all the time which I didn’t fully understand, and although their relationship at the start didn’t appear to be to heated an passionate, as you got to know them, and they got to know each other that changed. The story wasn’t too predictable and I think that is in part thanks to the fact that Claire was so mysterious.
