 Alright, I'm going to review all five parts of this together. Because I don't know why someone would break this up into five individual parts and the complete serial together was quite good. 

 

Logan Shelton, retired from the army, is a little lost in the civilian world. He's trying to get his lafe back on track and find some purpose after he left the only carrer he has ever known. A beautiful car and a chance meeting result in an unexpected friendship that changes his life in ways he never anticipated. 

 

Dawson Harrow is visiting his friends, and the last thing he expects is to hook up with a hot guy - not in a small town bar. But Logan is intriguing, sexy and willing, so home together they go. Little does Dawson know that he'll get more than he bargained for - as a military history professor and as a psychic. When he and Logan join forces in trying to fullfill the last wish of a persistent ghost, things get interesting. And heart-breaking. 

 

I enjoyed all of the parts individually, although I think they worked so well for me because I had all of them on my kindle and basically read them as if they were one whole novel instead of five novellas. 

 

Story-wise it was a fine balance between the past of Kenny, and the present blossoming relationship between Logan and Dawson. The supernatural aspects fit the story, the flashbacks were good and placed right in order to not distract from the present. Also, I was a big fan of Logan's family dynamics. They made it all feel more real. One little niggle was Dawson. He remained rather pale throughout the books and sometimes felt more like a "plot device" rather than a real MC. 

 

But all in all, it was a good read. A little angsty, a little sexy and a little heart-breaking. Not sure how it would work if you didn't read one part right after the other, but as a package deal they made for an enjoyable read.

This was really just an introduction to a longer story. I'm not sure why all the small novellas can't be one complete novel, but since I really liked Logan and his friend Bert, I'll read the other parts.

Logan on a mission to fulfill the wish of long dead soldier Kenny - who's also haunting Logan as it seems - sounds very promising to me.

Shattered (Dream Realms Trilogy, #1)
Shattered (Dream Realms Trilogy, #1) - Sophia Sharp Eh, what can I say? When you spot a grammar mistake in the second sentence, you know you're in for a rough ride. Shattered had every novel cliche I think there was ever invented. Normal girl leads a normal life until newcomer boy shows up. He's pale and handsome, very strong and has eyes that spark fear into her one moment only to look gentle the next. They get paired as partners in class. He rescues her from an almost rape, he drives a grey volvo and starts telling her vampire secrets that he's somehow kept quiet about for hundreds of years, but yet, can't resist telling her after knowing her for only a week. It did get better as it went along, but the beginning was pretty poorly written in my opinion. It just felt like juvenile writing. After they go on the run, things actually get more unique and the pacing felt better. Though, I thought it was weird when they had her change into the dress that you see on the cover. They do it because supposedly it's going to throw off the scent of the vamps that are chasing them, but if they can still track them after days, then I don't think that a change in clothing is really going to do it. Plus, it doesn't make sense that they can track them for days, and yet, when they're in the same cavern, the other vamp doesn't know where to find her because her scent is weak. Really? You can trace it through the wilderness and across days, but now you're losing the scent when she's in the same room? It just felt like the author put her in the dress simply so that she could use that picture for her cover. (And granted, it's a pretty cover).

Shattered (Dream Realms Trilogy, #1) - Sophia Sharp Horrible writing. I'm not quite sure how I managed to read this book. Immature, bad plot, and I felt the author tried to cram a lot of information into a very short period of time. I felt zero connection between Logan and Laura. If she was trying to mimic Twilight, she failed miserable. Her description/view of vampires was unimpressive and I had a really hard time following or even believing her own created history about them. In her effort to try and do something different and bring a 'new' light to vampires, she strayed so far off the road, making her ideas utterly unbelievable.

Shattered (Dream Realms Trilogy, #1) - Sophia Sharp I was excited to start a new "series" but this first book was a huge let down. I did not care for the writing style nor the characters. I should be more descriptive, but honestly it is best if I say it just wasn't my cuppa tea and leave it at that. I don't want to be rude and I'm too frustrated to give a PC review.
