This is a typical first love story between two 17 year olds. The girl is rich the guy is poor.
Unfortunately the theme of prejudice about money - either having lots of it or none of it - was treated with the subtlety of a sledgehammer. Each character was either good or bad, depending on whether they treated someone as they found them or had hang ups about their immense wealth/poverty. I got it the first time it was mentioned really, I didn't need for the point to be repeated so many times.
The sex scenes were good but it was a little insta-love for me.
Oh and it ends on a cliffhanger.

"All I wanted was a Princess Castle..." - Emma Preston - 6yrs old.

Shattered Ties is a complicated yet heart-warming first-love story told between two young adults from the opposite side of the tracks. Their love is nurtured through mutual attraction and selfless hearts as their worlds collide not once, but twice. Fate throws these two young souls together in a sandbox at the tender age of six, only then to play its final hand eleven years later.

Emma is the Daughter of a world-renowned rock star who enjoys international success, spending most of his time touring the world with his band; he has never been a full-time parental figure in her life. Her Mother is a supermodel socialite with a pretty smile for anyone with a hefty wallet and a `respectful' position within the Santa Monica community - anything less is unworthy of her attentions, and that goes for her Daughter too!

Jesse has never forgotten that day in the sandbox, when the beautiful little girl told him he didn't belong in her park because he was trash. All he wanted to do was help her build a castle. Watching her being dragged away by an angry woman in expensive clothes resonated strongly within him, changing his outlook on life from such an early age. Always believing he was never good enough even though his scholarship to the most respected private school in Santa Monica was accepted due to his `academic achievements.' He may drive a crap car, come from a trailer park and be covered in tattoos but Jesse knows who he is, more importantly he knows he is NOTHING like them!

Walking down millionaire row was never his idea of fun; he's only attending to appease his hard-working Mother as she struggles to work all the hours god sends as a waitress to keep their `trailer' roof over their heads.

Shattered Ties by KA Robinson
4 stars!!

"All I wanted was a princess castle."

I loved Shattered Ties, whilst it may seem that it has a similar premise to other books you may have read KA Robinson makes it different and puts her own little twists in there. Yes it is a case of rich girl falls in love with the boy from the poor side of town, but they have their own very unique story.

Maybe it was fate and destiny that Jesse and Emma met at school aged 17, Jesse winning a scholarship to go to the very prestigious school that Emma attended. Remembered by Jesse, but forgotten by Emma, their paths had already crossed when they were only 6 years old, in a sand box, in the "posh" park. Emma had been far from polite after being brain washed by her "social climber" of a mother, but this little altercation had a profound effect on Jesse and never would he be labelled as "trash" again. Thinking that Emma was the same as she was 11 years previous, Jesse was extremely wary but he soon found out that Emma was not the same little girl, in fact far from it.

"Don't you want to play with me?"
"I'm not supposed to play with you. My mommy said so."
"Why not?"
"Because you don't belong here, and you're trash." - Emma Bellokavich Preston - aged 6

Emma's parents were divorced, and to be honest if I was her father, I would be too. Her mother is Andria Bellokavich, she used to be a super model, but all she cares about is money, social standing and appearances in her affluent area of Santa Monica where they reside. She does not fraternize with anyone outside of her social class and looks down her nose at anyone that she deems is not worthy to be graced with her attention.

Got this as part of a bundle box set, and I may not have necessarily looked out for it or read it otherwise.
I am not a great fan of two or three-partners, I kinda feel short changed, but this book ends on a great cliff hanger and I cannot resist finding out what happens next between Emma and Jesse.
However, quite why it takes Emma two years to short her life out and go find Jesse is beyond me, but I will read the sequel and find out.

Loved this book. Great characters and a great storyline, a complete page turner. This author is now one of my favourites, her stories are always emotive and guarantee a rollercoaster ride. It takes a special person to make the words on a page jump straight into your heart and hang on right to the very end of the story.

This book turned out to be so much better than I ever thought it would be. The plot moved quickly. It was very well written. Typical bad boy from wrong side of tracks meets rich good innocent girl. But it was still a very good read.
