A Shattered Moment by Tiffany King
In the new series by Tiffany King, the USA Today bestselling author of the Woodfalls Girls novels, six friends—fresh from high school graduation—discover that the future can come at you from out of nowhere.
This is Mackenzie’s story…
Mackenzie Wilson once had hope for what life had to offer, but everything changed on the night of her graduation. A year later, the only way she can find comfort is by keeping her head down and hoping she remains unnoticed at college.
When Bentley James discovered Mac in that twisted SUV, he was just a newbie EMT on his first call. It was a gut-wrenching moment that made him realize not everyone can be saved—and sometimes they don’t want to be.
A chance encounter on campus brings Bentley back into Mac’s life. Despite her initial resistance, he sets out to discover the girl hiding beneath a shield of seclusion. He evokes painful memories in Mac—but also feelings. As the spark between them grows, Mac must decide if she can let go of the past and believe in something as fragile as love…
Mackenzie (Mac) and her friends experienced a traumatic accident the evening of their high school graduation that left them broken and at times shattered. This is Mac’s story of picking up the pieces and growing in the direction she wants to head. A run-in with an individual (Bentley) from that tragic evening has her opening up to situations and experiences Mac otherwise would’ve kept herself closed off from. Mac’s story started off emotionally hard to read but Tiffany pulled me in and had me enthralled with the delivery of hope and overcoming struggles throughout the novel. Bentley supports and stands beside Mac yet she tip toes within their relationship as her fear remains of losing those she gets close to and loves. Mac is a strong, independent woman and her strength that stood out the most for me is when she owns up to her faults and takes back what she knows she deserves and wants, that which makes her happy and complete. I’m anxious to hear more of this group of friends, especially what becomes of Zach and Kat (friends of Mac’s that were also in the accident). Give this a try and find your next book crush in Bentley!
