Sunny Shelly’s Review: Shattered Stars, by Shari J. Ryan

Release Date: April 4, 2019

Cover Design: MadHat Books




“You will lose your memory.”
That’s what a doctor told me at just twenty-nine years old.
My headaches and exhaustion weren’t from overexertion like I thought.
It was more. A lot more.

Despite my unimaginable challenges,
I found love at a time I needed it most.
Layne, a rising star and popular frontman,
was unknowingly singing life into my soul through his allusive lyrics.
I lived and breathed for the mesmeric sound of his voice.

Kismet led us to a kind of love anyone would die for.
However, Layne shouldn’t be stuck loving me after I begin to forget him.
We will once again be strangers, separated by a crowd.
I can no longer promise him a future like the one he vowed to me.

Layne is determined to help me get better.
I’m determined to make him see past my illness.
The outcome … to be determined.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

It’s taken me a few days to write a review for Shattered Stars because I’m still in a book hangover. I devoured it over the course of a day. I could not put it down. This is such an intense story of a marriage in crisis, a woman in crisis, a husband struggling to hold on to his wife and his life slipping away. But there is also so much faith in this story, and the love between Dani and Layne is remarkable.

The story goes back and forth between the present day and when Dani and Layne met 12 years ago and how they fell head over heels in love. She was a struggling single mom, and he was on the precipice is being a major rockstar, but they clicked and never looked back. Now, they are struggling to come to terms with Dani’s illness and it is just heartbreaking.

I’m going to stop there bc I don’t want to say anything else that will ruin the story for readers. It is hard to get through at points, but I am SO GLAD that I stuck it out. Shattered Stars tore me apart, but I am so glad that I got to know Dani and Layne and take this journey with them!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
