Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: Riley Miller wants nothing more than to leave her past behind and never speak of it again. The damage caused by what has happened has made her build walls keeping people out. Starting over isn't easy. After a move to Cape Cod to escape the dark and haunting secrets, she meets Abby and Evan. Instantly becoming best friends, shy and quiet Riley tries to break out of her shell with the help from her new friends. Just as she begins to settle into a comfortable routine, Riley meets Evan's friend Dustin.

Life as Riley knows it will never be the same.

Looking for love is the last thing on Dustin’s to do list, if it’s even on there at all. Living with some significant secrets of his own, Dustin tries to keep from getting in too deep with anyone. But, he finds himself drawn to the timid, yet stunning Riley. Can they both accept the past and develop a relationship? Or will the skeletons in both of their closets keep them from ever moving on?
 
 
I got the honour to beta-read this book when the author came to me and asked me to make a Book Trailer for it! I normally like to read a book before making a Book Trailer, so I got to read this book in July just after the author had finished it! I haven't read the final version of it, so some of the scenes may have been changed or taken out altogether, but my review is based on what I read! I'm sure it is very similar to the final version! A Tattered Love is the first book from this author that I've read, so I wasn't really sure what to expect from it, but I loved it! The synopsis instantly drew me to it and then I saw the cover which basically sealed the deal lol! The plot of this book was easy to follow and I really enjoyed it! I was intrigued when I first read the synopsis and it really does the plot justice! The plot was quite sad, but it had some serious bright spots as well! Especially for the main character! The plot went at a good pace to keep me interested and it kept me wanting to read on! I did have a few difficulties with it, but I'm positive that those difficulties have been fixed in the final version! The characters were amazing and I connected with them for most of the book, but in some scenes/chapters I didn't connect with them as much as I could have! Riley was the main character and I felt so sorry for her! She had built walls up around herself to protect herself and her love interest tries to break through those walls, but Riley was a character that had been hurt so many times that she found it hard to let anyone in! Once I found out what she had been through I completely understood why Riley was like this! She grew so much during this book though and I loved that because she deserved to grow and have more confidence! Dustin was the love interest of Riley and he was so hot! Like seriously hot! He had some secrets and throughout the book they started to be revealed! I loved how independent Dustin wanted to be considering his family background and I really admired that about him! I did think that sometimes he didn't take Riley's feelings into consideration and he did what he was though was right not really thinking of how it would affect Riley! I still loved him though and I adored his relationship with Riley! I have to admit that I did think that some of the relationships between the character in this book did develop too quickly! I would have loved for the book to have panned out a bit more to let their relationships develop more slowly, but overall the book was a good length! There were also other characters in this book that added so much to the story! I loved the secondary characters and I also loved what they brought to the story! I'm not sure if there's going to be another book to this one! I don't think there will be, but I wouldn't mind another book lol! I also think that two secondary characters from this book deserve their story told! *Wink wink* The cover for A Tattered Love is stunning! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! I can't wait until I see it in paperback! Big thank you to Nickie for letting me beta read A Tattered Love and also for having me on her Blog Tour!
