Shattered - Elizabeth   Lee There’s nothing new in Shattered with its Heartbroken Girl, unsure as to how to proceed or even guy off in the shadows wanting to make things better for her. Heck even the shared heartbreak over someone’s death was not new; piece things apart and things could have gone better but at most this was just an OK story. My issue they each are just as they are summed up, not once do any of them behave contrary to their respective labels. They call her over dramatic, and boy does she act that way! He’s the protective alpha type and simply he acts that way too. None of the side characters add much depth either: the Best friend is understanding, the mother is overbearing, and the father is squished between being there for the woman he loves and the daughter he's trying to understands. Except it could have been so much more too! The trio they’d formed and the memories they each have of the guy that glued them together… those were sweet and added something more... except add that little tidbit of the two having ‘thing’ for each other and neither wanting to rock the boat, well been there and bought the t-shirt, too! Nothing new, nothing new, so here I am feeling like Eeyore all mopey… with his long drawn out “Oh well…” coupled with sad-sigh at the end. 2/5
