Blog Tour & Giveaway: Shattered Promises [Shattered Promises 01] by Jessica Sorensen!

Publication date: 26th February 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: For twenty-one year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. She knows nothing about her past and has been haunted by the same monsters in her nightmares for the last three years. Unemotional and numb to life, she feels disconnected from everyone. Until the very first day she cries. After that, nothing in her life is the same.
Her emotions slowly surface and she starts experiencing love, happiness, and anger, feelings she never knew existed. But they leave her confused and she doesn’t know whether to embrace them or run away from them.
Her life only gets more complicated when she meets Alex. Sexy, arrogant, and secretive, Alex can get under Gemma’s skin like no one can. Yet she’s drawn to him by an invisible connection she has no control over. She’s also seen him before. In her nightmares.
Every part of Gemma’s mind is screaming at her to stay away from Alex, but every other part of her is begging to get close to him. But the closer she gets, the more she realizes Alex knows more about her than he originally let on.
As secrets about her past unravel, Gemma’s life becomes threatened. She needs to figure out what’s going on, before she winds up dead. But the only person she can turn to for answers is the one person she isn’t sure she can trust.
Favourite quote: "There was heaviness in his eyes and darkness like the sky, but deep down, within the depths of his pupils there was a spark that matched the stars in the sky."
I was so excited when Jessica announced that she was making The Fallen Star series into a New Adult Fantasy series as we were going to get a whole load of hot scenes and that is exactly what Shattered Promises had! The plot of this book was the exact same as The Fallen Star but it was like reading a brand new book! There were some new scenes added and some scenes were changed or more was added in or taken away from them! I have to be honest and say that I did find some scenes a little bit rushed though! I would have loved for some of them to have panned out a little bit more as I was getting really into them and then it would skip ahead or change to a new chapter! I'm not sure if some scenes are going to be panned out more in the final version though! The characters were even better than what they were in The Fallen Star! Gemma was different but she wasn't completely different that you wouldn't be able to connect with her like you did in The Fallen Star! She was far more grown up and she handled situations in a far more grown up way! Alex was even hotter in this book that what he was in The Fallen Star! How is that even possible? He was pretty cocky but I loved that! I also loved how protective he was of Gemma! I wasn't expecting Gemma and Alex's relationship to develop as much as it did in this book but it was perfect! I would have loved to have seen more of Aislin and of course Laylen in this book but they were again amazing characters and I loved their changes as well! I am really looking forward to reading the next book in this series and seeing the changes that Jessica makes to re-imagine The Underworld! The cover is also hot! Big thank you to Jessica for an ARC of Shattered Promises!
