Blog Tour & Giveaway: Shattered Ties [Ties 01] by K.A. Robinson!


Publication date: 12th November 2013
Paperback edition: 263 pages

Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: 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?


I loved this book! Absolutely loved it! I completely adored this author's other series, so to say that I was excited about this one was an understatement! I had been desperate to read this book since I first heard about it and it definitely lived up to my expectations! Overall, this book was about two people from two completely different backgrounds falling in love! It was also about the ups and downs of a relationship between two people from different backgrounds! The plot of this book was amazing! I love everything about it! The plot was written amazingly and it kept me interested and desperate to read on to find out what was going to happen next! I did also enjoy the twists and turns added as it fueled the story and I didn't see most of them coming, so I was left with my mouth hanging open! The characters were absolutely amazing! Emma was the main female character and she gave off the impression that she was a stuck up snob because she came from a rich background, but Emma was such a nice person! She was so likeable and I just completely loved her personality! I loved that she didn't look down her nose at people because her parents had a lot of money and instead she gave everyone a chance and also she didn't judge people, even though they judged her when they first met her! I felt quite sorry for Emma in this book as her mum was quite controlling of her, but her mum only really cared about being at the top of the social ladder instead of being a parent! This left Emma quite a lonely character! Well, until she meets a certain hot, tattooed surfer that is ;) Jesse was the main male character and he was so hot! I loved the way Jesse was because he was such a genuine guy! Plus, who doesn't love a guy with tattoos, right? ;) Jesse was also so cute with Emma and I loved his relationship development with her as well! I felt so sorry for Jesse because he came from such a hard life, but he was so protective of his mum, which made me aww lol! I loved that this book was written from both Emma and Jesse's point of views as it made the story so much more interesting and I also loved getting to see Emma and Jesse's feelings for each other develop through both of their eyes! I will definitely, without a doubt be reading the next book in this series! I fell in love with this book and I can't wait to find out what's going to happen in the next book! I also wasn't really expecting this book to finish at a cliff-hanger, so that's made me even more desperate for the next book! I also thought that this book was a standalone when I first heard about it, but then I found out that there was going to be another book! The cover for this book is stunning! Absolutely stunning! It suits the book so much more than I realised! Big thank you to K.A. Robinson for an ARC of Shattered Ties and to The SubClub books for having me on the Blog Tour!
