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…

3.5 stars out of 5 stars
*I received an early finished copy of this book from the publisher but it did not influence this review in any way.*

Quick to grab my attention and full of angst, Tiffany King hooked me from the first page with A Shattered Moment. I love reading books that can break my heart and leave me sobbing. While I wasn't sobbing my eyes out, I was left reeling with emotions and watered eyes.

Mac's story of loss, grief, friendship and healing was hard to read at times but I couldn't help but just wanting to push forward and see how she would heal from the aftermath of such a tragedy. Bentley was super patient and sweet and I love the way he managed to help Mac in her healing process. Normally, I'll be all over the romance in these books but this time I felt like I wasn't as interested in it as much as I wanted to see Mac become whole again. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the romance but I was more invested in Mac's progress.

I can't wait to read the next book in this series because after that shocking ending, I NEED to know what happens next.
