~Shattered Ties Review

5 Stars

With a former supermodel mother and a rock-and-roll legend father, Emma Preston has the best of everything. Nothing is as perfect as it seems though. After her parents divorce, she’s forced to live with her mother in a private Santa Monica community. Ignoring their parental roles, her mother becomes more focused on climbing the social ladder while her father is off on tour.

Growing up in a trailer park with his mother, Jesse is used to people looking down on him. When his mother begs him to submit an application for a scholarship to one of Santa Monica’s top private schools, he never expects to actually get it. When he does, he is forced to attend school with a bunch of rich kids. He ignores their stares as they judge him for having tattoos and a less than impressive car. As long as he has his surfboard and the guys at the tattoo shop, he knows he can make it through.

When Jesse shows up on the first day of school, Emma can’t help but be intrigued. Her mother would never approve of Emma talking to someone so poor, but she doesn’t care because something about Jesse draws her to him.

Jesse tries to hate Emma, but he discovers that he can’t resist her. Forced to hide their relationship from Emma’s mother and everyone else around them, things start to fall apart. When Jesse’s friend, Ally, decides to interfere, things go from bad to worse.

Can they survive their first love? Or will they be left with nothing more than shattered ties?

This Book captured my attention and kept my attention from the beginning…. This is one of those heartfelt twisted love stories that you just can’t help share the emotions of the characters!!  K.A. Robinson has a wonderful gift for getting me all wrapped up in a book and then making me want more…This book was NO different…. I give this book 5+++ Stars!!

Jesse has never forgotten that day in the sandbox, when the beautiful little blonde rich girl told him he didn’t belong in her park because he was trash. All he was trying to do was play with her… Help her build a sand castle. Unfortunately her reaction to him left him with a very strong feeling of worthlessness

Emma cannot help have the attitude she has…. Her mom demands it of her, at seventeen she is well rehearsed of what is ‘expected’ of her, but unlike her ridiculous Mother, she is willing to take people at face value and give them a chance.

Emma can’t help but notice the hot new guy with his tattoos; he is nothing like the spoiled brats she has gone to school with for most of her life. They end up getting to know one another by chance due to the fact that they have quite a few classes together.

Emma finds that is Jesse  smart, funny,  talented but he is  brutally honest and very caring; Something she is not used to but it appeals to her……But Jessie has a secret, something he is scared to tell Emma…..Not to mention the differences in social status…. Will they make it???

This story is one of those complicated yet heart-warming wrong side of the tracks type. The love that these two share is that young first love that you never forget.... it is well worth the read!! I can’t wait for the next book to see how the rest of this story plays out!!
