Shattered (The Protectors, #11) by Sloane Kennedy

Shattered (The Protectors, #11)

I failed Caleb once because I was a coward. And he ended up paying the price. Never again...Ten years of war and the loss of nearly his entire family have left thirty-four-year-old former sniper, Jace Christenson, with nothing to come home to. And he prefers it that way. Life consists of his work in an underground vigilante group, the near-constant search for the last remaining link to who he used to be, and a string of meaningless sexual encount...

    Finally !!! Caleb and Jace !! I know I am not the only one who has been anxiously waiting for their story and I am very glad to say, that the wait was definitely worth it ;)I have been a fan of these two, since they were introduced in "Forsaken", which was Eli and Mav's story. Caleb was Eli's, then 17 years old, stepbrother. It was pretty obvious Caleb and Jace had something magical between them, but I also agreed with Sloane, that Caleb had some...

    Lovely new addition to the Protectors series. It has all the ingredient Sloane Kennedy is known for. So it’s no surprise I ate this up.19 year old Caleb thinks he is broken. He feels shattered beyond repair because of the things he has experienced. He has been abused by his father for many years and that only stopped because his stepbrother (who was abused too) finally tells the truth. (See Eli’s book, even though smart to read that book firs...

    4.5 stars for this great episode of The Protectors ! I love this series - the flow, camaraderie, and the awesome characters. This being Caleb & Jase’s story which was beautiful. While there were terrible traumas and abuse associated to this story it was handled with compassion and empathy. Jase was stunning as he slowly became undone and his vulnerability began to show all the while Caleb helped put him back together and allowed himself to heal...

    Another great addition to this seriesThis book could have been a train wreck given the sensitivity of the subject and the age of one of the main characters but Sloane Kennedy answered all fears with an assured hand.There was no magic dick cure for Caleb, it took time and patience and conversation and a creation of trust with Jase for the relationship to develop.I'm not sure it needed the secondary dramatic plot with Jase's sister if I'm being bru...

    3.5*not my favorit, maybe I had too many Sloane Kennedy books this year
  • Alex
    I want to say "That was sweet" but then again Caleb story is really really hard to read.This is the thing with SK. She find the most traumatized men and put them together and make the sweetest romances...It baffles me sometimes that I love those books so much because I AM NOT a family person and babies tend to make me flee. Yet, here I am, rushing to these books as soon as they're out and I really love them.Completely OTT. Often over emotional. A...
  • JustJen
    This is another solid installment to the series that follows along the same path as the others. Caleb is 19 years old, though we met him a few years ago when he was 17. He is a bit beyond his years due to the things he’s been through (you can get more of that background reading Eli’s (Caleb’s brother) book). He continues to suffer the aftermath of his past, and when it starts closing in on him, he crumbles a bit and goes on the run.Jace hit...
  • Bev
    Not my fave Protectors story, but not bad. The melodrama was strong with this one, Jack Cortano having fingers in more pies than Mr Kipling, but I was a tad disappointed at the nature of his comeuppance...I'm sure Jace, Mav and others could've thought of several creative and extremely painful ways to end his useless existence. 3.5 stars.And yes, who couldn't have foretold that Silver would get together with Dalton at some point in the future, it ...
  • Amanda
    I knew going into this book that it would be hard to read. Mav and Eli’s book was very rough and this continues the story with Caleb, Eli’s brother. Jace has stayed away for two years. But he can no longer do that. Caleb needs him. The trial for his father is fast approaching and someone wants to take him out. Jace helps Caleb heal. He makes him feel safe and shows him that he is not the product of his past and has the rest of his life to fin...
  • Shannon
    I decided I should go back and skim Eli and Rav's story before starting this one because my memory is not the best. So glad I did. I went into this one fresh off the other and it was freaking fantastic. All these men are so fucked up in different ways and going along on their wild rides is my favorite kind of book. Now I'm pissed I don't have something up next to read that's going to compare. Damn!
  • Tina
    Loved loved loved Jace and Caleb!Can’t wait for the next story.
  • Jodi Ciorciari-marinich
    I don't know what to say about this addition to the Protector series. I want to say that this is my favorite of all 11 of them but every time she comes out with a new one it becomes my favorite. All of Sloane's men are damaged in some way and by the end of the story they find true love and a way to more forward. When I started to read this one, I knew I would need the tissues from the beginning. What a life Caleb had and you will have a hard time...
  • Jenn's Book Obsession
    I just want to lock this author in a room and keep her all to myself. Give me all the stories!!! I don't know how much more praise I can give this author. It's just plain and simple, Sloane Kennedy is a phenomenal writer and she kills it in this genre. I can't really say I've been dying to read Jace and Caleb's story because I think I say that about every book of hers, lol. I more like crave the next book no matter what or which character it is. ...
  • Jess A Jaye
    I am often eagerly awaiting the next release by my favourite authors but sometimes there are those books that I feel like I'm counting down the days and desperate to get my hands on. Shattered which is Caleb and Jace's story in the Protectors series was one of those books for me. Ever since we met them in Eli and Mav's book I have WANTED and NEEDED to read Caleb and Jace's story.That kind of anticipation is a lot to put on both a book and an auth...

    What a truly and remarkable book! Although, at times I wanted to curl up and cry from some of the cruelty which surrounded these two powerful characters their strength is what captatived me. Caleb a lost and destroyed soul just barely clinging to his sanity after years of abuse from a loved one! Trying to understand the reasons behind the abuse and the reasons for his delusional denials of the why's of his conflicting feelings about what happened...
  • Elizabeth
    How much bad shit can happen to one person? According to Ms. Kennedy a lot of shit. Caleb poor damaged Caleb finally gets the life he deserves. Jace and Caleb are a long time coming and I was so happy to see their relationship play out. Classic protectors series and classic Kennedy, if you are fan this one did not disappoint. It's filled with crazy circumstances, action, sex, passion, and all those crazy circumstances surrounding these group of m...

    4.5Painful and brutal and all kinds of raw. But also sweet and even empowering. This story dealt with an issue so close to home that I almost can’t find the words to express what it meant to I’m not going to try. It was more sad than sweet for me although I loved Jace and his love and understanding for Caleb was shown that alone made this one worth the read
  • Viki Evans
    ShatteredWell she did it again. She ripped my heart from my chest, stomped on it and put it back in. Jace and Caleb's story broke my heart as usual, it was hard for me to read in places but it was light hearted too. I loved how this book flowed and I can't wait for the next in the series x
  • Debbora
    Another amazing must read. The content is hard. Please read the warnings. Definitely 5 Stars for me. I’m looking forward to Unbroken Aleks and Vaughn’s story. But I really hope Silver gets his story.
  • David Alexander
    ~4.5 Stars
  • Vicki Easom Johnson
    Amazing!I just can't get enough! I love the fact that no matter how many books I have read on between releases i can step back into this series like there hasn't been a break. Jace and Caleb are amazing together. I love their chemistry. Sloane is amazing! I love this series!
  • JenMcJ
    This book is much better than the last few. This felt less forced and even though it's more emotional than many of the books, it was less overwrought than the recent few books. There were a few missteps but overall I think the author is getting back to the earlier books with character development and story telling.

    Sloane has done it again, her stories are just so amazing, emotional and action-packed. I love Cabel and Jace storie.
  • Samantha Ortega
    Review in both english and frenchFR- Alors alors.... alors j'ai beaucoup aimé ce tome. Peut etre même un peu plus que le tome 10 dont je vous ai parlé recement. On attendait l'histoire de Caleb et Jace depuis un long moment déjà (depuis le tome 4 sur Mav et Eli) et vu l'âge de Caleb lors de ce tome, c'est normal qu'il n'arrive quand maintenant.Et oui, nous sommes deux ans après les événements de Forsaken, et Caleb, s'il est un peu moins ...
  • Girlfriend
    Shattered: The Protectors Book 11 sees us reintroduced to Caleb Cortano and Jace Christenson, two men we met back in Forsaken with Mav and Eli. I'm not going to give the plot away, the blurb says enough and if your here getting this book chances are you've read the previous ten books, if not GET to it, your denying yourself reading great fiction written by a seriously, seriously talented author..This book was always going to be a hard read, Caleb...
  • Amanda Viecelli
    Finally, Jace and Caleb! It was sooo worth the wait though. This book had me feeling all the feelings and I still am, so I’m going to apologize now. This will likely be a rambling review! :) I knew going in that this book would be an intense, emotional read. I knew it would deal with tough topics, and before I say anything else... Guys, this book is SO WORTH IT, but please pay attention to the trigger warnings. I can’t stress that enough.Now ...
  • Kerry Fletcher
    My God i love this series!We're on book 11 and this series shows no sign of slowing down! Each and every book is just brilliant!This is Jace and Caleb's story and what a story it is.Jace has buried his head in the sand for 2 years about his feelings for Caleb. At the time Caleb was too young and vulnerable for Jace to do what he usually would. Work out his own frustrations and then leave. Jace blocked it all out and avoided Caleb as best he could...

    I walked into this book knowing it would be a tough read. I knew a bit of what Caleb Cortano had suffered at the hands of his father in Eli and Mav’s story (Forsaken #4) and I knew it was gonna hurt. Here we get to know what Caleb went through and what coping mechanisms he’s using just to survive. Anyone looking from the outside in knows that he’s not to blame for his father’s atrocities, but he’s carrying ‘round a shed load of guilt....
