This book was heartwrenching in the very best way. The characters suck you in from the first page. Hope that things will work out keep you reading, it's a one sitting read - there was no way I could put this book down and return to it. I NEEDED to know what was going to happen. I loved this book - five stars are not enough.
The blurb only scratches the surface as we get both past and present in Danielle Hensen's POV. Her struggles as a 16 year old and the horrific circumstances as to why her mind is not her own any longer. But even through the very worst of it, she never gives up. I would almost call her lucky despite the trauma she suffers, since everyone in her life truly adores her and just wants her to be able to live the life that should be hers.
With Layne by her side, nothing can stop this determined woman. Theirs is a love story that is beyond beautiful. From the very first time they laid eyes on each other, the 18 year old Dani and the frontman for Dividing Oblivion were clearly meant to be. Even when Dani's spirit is at times damaged, it's Layne who lifts her up. OMGoodness. This man. He is utterly divine from his shaggy bad boy looks to his exquisite selflessness. He is the consummate book boyfriend in every single way.
I love that Shari Ryan continues to create stories that are uniquely hers and that they can reach right into my soul and fill it so completely. The hope that Ryan relays in these more sedate and serious books dispels the despair that her characters may cling to. But the struggles are thoughtfully conveyed without ever feeling trite or misplaced. And it's that hope that not only sees Dani through her worst but gives a bit of respite to the weary loved ones like Layne and her daughter Aly, who only have her best interests at heart.
This is a ride I thoroughly enjoyed, never really knowing what roadblock might show up at a moment's notice or how it would all turn out for Dani and her close-knit family of friends and loved ones. But it's a well-paced and well-executed book with the right amount of angst, and I was immensely satisfied once I read those very last lines.
A story not to be missed because Ryan's talent is immeasurable, I am more than happy to give Shattered Stars a solid 5 stars!
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.
Holy freaking crap! This book was everything! I won't give anything away but will say this. This book is not like anything Ms. Ryan has written and i can guarantee that its going to take you on an emotional journey like no other. Flawlessly written and heartfelt. Be prepared my friends! Fantastic Read!
This book, at its heart, is about love. Not the starry-eyed hearts and flowers love, but the love borne of strength, determination and selflessness. A love that withstands every trial and adversity thrown at it, a love that makes the impossible choices, and a love that stands strong and tirelessly endures. There are so many wonderful examples of this kind of love in this book – a mother's love for her child, a son's love for his mother, love between friends who are as close as family, and the beautiful romantic love between Dani and Layne.
Ryan gives us poetic prose brimming with heartfelt emotion that captivates the reader's heart with authentic, admirable characters who leave their mark on the soul. You'll be left breathless as you watch these characters find something good and precious from horror and tragedy and look deep enough to see the beauty in ashes. Their story is stunning, their love is epic, and their journey will irrevocably touch your heart and live within you long after the last page. Easily in my top five reads for the year, you absolutely don’t want to miss this evocative, poignant, phenomenal story!

Layne and Dani have been together for a lot of years and are going through a very hard time after Dani has been diagnosed with a disease no one saw coming. They're trying to get through it the best they can and care for their daughter in the process. It's a lot for the family to be dealing with and Layne is desperate to somehow find a way to get Dani through it and maybe, find a cure or good medication that can help her but it's not easy... Dani's past is coming back in pieces and somehow it'll be something that she'll have to deal with alongside everything else she's dealing with. Through it all, Layne never loses hope and will do whatever it takes to have her by his side. Will love find a way to test the true tests of time?...
