(A re-imagining of The Fallen Star told as a New Adult Paranormal)
For twenty-one year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. She knows nothing about her past and has been haunted by the same monsters in her nightmares for the last few months. Unemotional and numb to life, she feels disconnected from everyone. Until the very first day she cries. After that, nothing in her life is the same.
Her emotions slowly surface and she starts experiencing love, happiness, and anger, feelings she never knew existed. But they leave her confused and she doesn’t know whether to embrace them or run away from them.
Her life only gets more complicated when she meets Alex. Sexy, arrogant, and secretive, Alex can get under Gemma’s skin like no one can. Yet she’s drawn to him by an invisible connection she has no control over. She’s also seen him before. In her nightmares.
Every part of Gemma’s mind is screaming at her to stay away from Alex, but every other part of her is begging to get close to him. But the closer she gets, the more she realizes Alex knows more about her than he originally let on.
As secrets about her past unravel, Gemma’s life becomes threatened. She needs to figure out what’s going on, before she winds up dead. But the only person she can turn to for answers is the one person she isn’t sure she can trust.

SO, I have read the YA version to this series Fallen Star and I loved it then, so of course I love Shattered Promises. The story is basically the same only all the characters are college age, and the intensity that Alex and Gemma share is far more intimate. Every time Gemma experiences a new emotion this time it seems like lust is accompanying it. The girl is a raging ball of hormones that needs release. I think that allowing the characters to be older and more intimate will open up many different avenues for the future book series. Her relationship with Alex can only get more complicated with all the sexual frustration added to their teetering relationship. Her relationship with Laylen teeters on a want and a true friendship. I still was just as intrigued by the new version as I was the old Version of this series.
The story is different and introduces all sorts of different characters. Even though I have basically read it before I was still just as engorged in the story waiting for the next twist in the story. The edgier version leaves you even more on the edge of your seat because the scenes are so much more intense, or it seems that way. Overall the book is intriguing, suspenseful, full of mystery and action, and NOW a whole lot more intimate leaving you all hot and bothered. 4 stars
