I am missing something. I must be because this isn’t the first series that’s caught my eye and then wound up veering out of the world of Rock Fiction and into … something else entirely.

Now it’s the Shattered Heart Series, written by Cassia Leo. I’ve coveted her books before, mostly Black Box. [Mostly? Try only, Jett –Susan]

The first four books in the series, two of which are those oh-so-hot in-between books, are about a rocker. Who’s red hot, of course. Who can’t leave this woman behind although it sounds like there’s a lot of breaking up and getting back together with him over the course of the books.


Claire Nixon is a college student with a past full of secrets and heartbreak.

At seven years old, the death of her mother by drug overdose destroys her faith in humanity and herself as she is tossed from one foster home to another. Feeling unwanted and disposable, she fights to keep herself safe in the system. Until, at the age of fifteen, she is saved by her first love, and soon-to-be rock star, Chris Knight and his mother, who quickly becomes the mother she always wanted.

When Claire encourages Chris to leave town to pursue his dreams of musical stardom, both Claire and Chris don’t realize this will be the biggest mistake of their lives.

One year after Chris leaves on tour, Claire has carved out a new life for herself in a new city far away from the life she left behind with Chris. On a fateful morning, she meets sexy surfer Adam Parker.

To Claire, Adam is just another flirty customer at the cafe, until a chance encounter and seemingly innocent comment spurs a bet between them. The bet is simple: If Adam can get Claire to reveal the secret that made her drop out of college and leave her life behind, she has to re-enroll. If he doesn’t succeed, she gets to keep her secret and he has to stop stalking her at the cafe.

Claire thinks she has this one in the bag. She’s perfected the art of forgetting her past. But she isn’t prepared for Adam’s relentless pursuit or for him to share his own secrets. And she’s definitely not prepared for the love of her life, Chris Knight, and her secret, to come banging down her door one year later.

I don’t know. Maybe this is more about Claire than it is Rock Fiction. Sure seems that way, as it seems like Chris being a guitar player is really there to get him out of the way so Claire can figure out how she feels about him. That might explain why the series itself isn’t Rock Fiction.

Gonna have to read and find out, of course.
