Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

It's been a while since I read an Abbie Roads book, and now I'm kicking myself for getting away from her brand of romantic thriller. Shattered Dreams is the kind of book that pulls you right in from the start, and it does not let go - even after the final page has been turned. Helena is such a great character, and I was totally invested in her and Thomas. The story flows so well, and it's the kind that makes you lose all track of time. You know, one of those just one more chapter kind of stories that keeps you up all night, reading frantically to get the answers.
This is the third book in Abbie Roads's Beautiful Nightmare series, but it is a standalone. It's well written and there are some great twists that I didn't see coming. The book is not without some darkness, but I expected that given the genre, and I would advise heeding the trigger warnings before diving in. As for me, this romantic thriller is both dark and gripping, which is right up my alley.
