Sunday Swoon #13

Today, I get to share a few snippets from a book I love! no spoilers!

I've read the first three books as the young adult version, and decided to read the whole series in the new adult version. I'm listening to Shattered Promises on audiobook now!


Book 1: Shattered Promises

**Mature Content Warning** 17+ for language and sexual content.
(A re-imagining of my young adult book, The Fallen Star, told as a New Adult Paranormal)

For twenty-one year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. She knows nothing about her past and has been haunted by the same monsters in her nightmares for the last few months. Unemotional and numb to life, she feels disconnected from everyone. Until the very first day she cries. After that, nothing in her life is the same.
Her emotions slowly surface and she starts experiencing love, happiness, and anger, feelings she never knew existed. But they leave her confused and she doesn’t know whether to embrace them or run away from them.
Her life only gets more complicated when she meets Alex. Sexy, arrogant, and secretive, Alex can get under Gemma’s skin like no one can. Yet she’s drawn to him by an invisible connection she has no control over. She’s also seen him before. In her nightmares.
Every part of Gemma’s mind is screaming at her to stay away from Alex, but every other part of her is begging to get close to him. But the closer she gets, the more she realizes Alex knows more about her than he originally let on.
As secrets about her past unravel, Gemma’s life becomes threatened. She needs to figure out what’s going on, before she winds up dead. But the only person she can turn to for answers is the one person she isn’t sure she can trust.

Book 2: Fractured Souls

Book 2.5: Unbroken

Book 3: Broken Visions

Book 4: Scattered Ashes


“I can’t seem to take my eyes of the patch of skin that shows when he raises his hand to run his fingers through his hair, making his shirt ride up a little.” 
― Jessica SorensenShattered Promises

“His teeth gently nick at my skin and it stings a little, but feels amazingly good at the same time; like some kind of euphoric venom dancing threw my veins.” 
― Jessica SorensenShattered Promises

“I miss him the second he disappears. I miss him so much it hurts.” 
― Jessica SorensenFractured Souls

“Do you know how hard it was?” he breathes, his palm resting on my neck, his thumb smoothing across the sensitive area. “I’m sorry you had to do that.” I place my finger over a small hole in his chest where one of the tubes was embedded. “I really am, especially since you had to go there pretty much for nothing.” He shakes his head. “Not that… I’ve already told you that pain isn’t a big deal.” He brushes his lips across mine. “Being away from you… it gets harder and harder… I swear to God it actually feels like I’m dying.” I don’t know what to say at his honestly raw admittance and he doesn’t give me time as he crashes his lips against mine.”

“The electricity devours my soul, fractures it open, and leaves it vulnerable and exposed.” 
― Jessica SorensenFractured Souls

“His eyes darken and his voice drops to a firm, husky tone."I can always tie you to the bed and make it so you can't go anywhere.” 
― Jessica SorensenBroken Visions
