New Release: Shattered Faith: Carson by Jacqueline M. Sinclair

 
Every wound leaves a scar. Some wounds cut you so deep you’re never the same again.
 
Abby Jones thought she’d mended. She’d moved away, went back to school and got herself a job she loved. Now she’s getting married and life couldn’t be better.
 
Then tragedy strikes and rips those old wounds wide open.
 
Carson Steele had never been a man that settled for anything, and he wasn’t about to start now. Abby’s little change of heart was a problem, but she was going to marry him. He’d give her time and he would give her space, but come hell or high water, if Abby survived this, she would be his.
 
 
5star

This is the second book I have read in the Steele Standing Series and it was so different than the first, Renegade.

Carson Steele is a paramedic in a small town and the new hire, Abby, catches the playboy’s eye. Abby has become a paramedic to make up for when she felt like a failure years ago after an accident that hurt her boyfriend.

“It’s fear of failure that drives me. Never again will I be without the knowledge to save someone. Especially someone I love.” – Abby

This is actually a good length story and it has such a surprising twist at 50%. Actually at 35% it seemed like we would have our HEA and the rest would be a fun ride, but that wasn’t the case at all. I really enjoyed the journey Carson and Abby took. Parts of it broke my heart! The way Abby pushed Carson away was so sad. I really enjoyed Shattered Faith and can’t wait for more in the series.

Overall: 5 stars
Cliffhanger: no
Designation: can be read as a standalone, part of a series

Margaret Wilson is eighteen
years old in 1969. The Vietnam War is raging. Her mother is dying and her
father is drowning in pain. She is sheltered, religious and completely
unprepared to fall in love with William Steele.

 
William has it all. A product
of his family’s legendary reputation, he’s rich, reckless and known for pushing
boundaries. He stands up to gossip by upping the ante, one rebellious night at
a time.
 
The reality of his world sweeps
away Margaret’s innocence and puts her in the middle of a place she’s never
known. With William at her side, she can’t help but question her own boundaries
and the temptation to ignore them is running high. Then, one night, one poor
decision and Margaret becomes the one with everything to lose.
 
Will their young love be strong
enough to hold it all together?

 

She and her friend set me up.  Then they sent those pictures to my wife.  Little did they know that she’d already left me and that I was devastated and ready to self-destruct.  Because of her, I lost everything I ever wanted … the only hope I had.  Now I will risk everything I have left to destroy her.  It doesn’t matter why she did it, that she was hurting, or even that she was drunk. It doesn’t matter that she looks at me like she sees into my soul. Does it? 

 
Trinity
 
Melanie was the one that’d sent those pictures to his wife, but it was me who’d told her to get her camera ready.  I’d been angry at my ex-fiance and took it out on Merrick, wanting to expose him for the cheater I thought he was.  I never dreamed it would go this far – that he would vow to destroy me. I’d take it all back if I could, but the damage is done.  My mother’s life’s work is at his mercy and he’s determined to make me feel the loss that I caused him.  Still, the way he looks at me I have to ask myself, did my poor choices wake the monster…or the man?



Jacqueline grew up in the rural
southeast and is the youngest child of a large and rowdy family. Reading was an
escape when there wasn’t much else around to do. She loves everything from
classical literature to true crime and everything in between. With her two
children grown and gone, she’s surrounded by a menagerie of adopted pets and a
two-legged thief who refused to give her heart back after a night of karaoke.



With a day job and a dream job, her writing is a steamy combination of real
life and seeking to answer the age-old question of what would happen if…and
then characters come along and completely derail the plan. Letting them have
their say provides plenty of sleepless nights and an endless combination of
coffee and wine, but she hopes you enjoy their stories.
