Product Description

Product Description

They say home is where the heart is.

Ashton Roberts never understood that saying. Heart couldn't be found anywhere in the rundown bungalow she grew up in. It also couldn't be found in the luxury estate she moved into when her mother married her stepfather.

All Ashton wants is to get her degree, meet Mr. Right and find the happy stable life she never had. But when life constantly throws her curve balls, she begins to wonder if it really is just a pipe dream.

Until she runs into her former neighbor, Reed Collins.

As a child, Reed had always been Ashton's silent protector. As an adult, he is everything she has ever dreamed of in a man. If only he didn’t keep her at arms length. But as things heat up, guards drop and secrets are revealed which toss Ash back into the turmoil surrounding a tragic event from her youth.

Will Ashton let her past fracture the perfect picture of her future? Or will the meaning of loyalty, family and love be redefined?

HASH(0xa7f1e0e4) out of 5 stars An Emotional Ride With Fantastic Characters March 22 2016
By S.M. Lowry - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
*Disclaimer: I received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

If you’re a Colleen Hoover fan, then you will love Fractured Palace by R.J. Loom. The characters are realistic, and they tugged on my heart from the beginning. Ashton has had a difficult life, and her pain is tangible, yet it doesn’t break her. She’s a resilient woman, and I easily became attached to how her life would turn out. Reed is absolutely swoon-worthy. His desire to protect Ashton from the time she was young made him an endearing character. The story pulled me in and hooked me from the prologue. Loom seamlessly weaves intensity and lightheartedness into the story, which makes Fractured Palace a rich romance that left me with a wonderful book hangover. I highly recommend reading it.
HASH(0xa7f1e4c8) out of 5 stars Oh my gods!!! Love it! May 2 2016

Oh my gods! Wow! Put your pajamas on, get your tissues, and settle in for the long haul. This is not a story that you can just pick up and put down whenever you get tired, need to eat, or even go to the bathroom. This is a story of love, sacrifice, and finding one’s self. Perfectly flawed fairytale!

We start the story off with Ashton. She is at a party and has to make a split decision to call her stepdad to pick her up. After she is picked and is gearing for an arguement they go look for her mother. She is dead. Ashton feels like she has been through it all. She has had a shabby home and upbringing, watched a string of boyfriends come in and out of her home, and was in the middle of her mother’s addictions. Her mother cleaned up, married her stepdad, and things went well until her mother relapsed and ended up dead. It was a devastating time but her stepdad continued to support Ashton. Ashton always knew what she didn’t want and worked incredibly hard to do everything in her power not to end up like her mother. Only this didn’t work out to her advantage. She constantly fell into bad relationships but the one thing that always seemed to help was her old friend, Reed. He always seemed to be there when she needed him. This goes back as far as her being 5. They used to be neighbors and Reed, along with his mother and brother, helped look after Ashton when she was in a bad spot at home. They would lose touch due to their age differences but he always popped up when she needed him most. Everything moves along and you just know this is going to work but Reed is beating himself up about something. Some terrible secret, some darkness, that he just can’t shake. This is where I leave you to find out the rest of the story. The twists and turns you are about to embark on cannot be given in a review. The only way to find out is to experience the emotions that both of these characters deal with. New love, turmoil, guilt, what-if’s....If you want it, this story has got it!

“It was all Ashton wanted, to be happy . She wanted the fairy tale with a Prince Charming, palaces and happy endings. Unfortunately, all she seemed to get was the part of damsel in distress. And it sucked.”

“So you’re the ‘Expect nothing from me. I get bored easily, guy’?” Reed chuckled and shook his head. “No, Ash. I’m just a guy who hasn’t found the girl I want to shape my world around. Simple as that.” Her brows pulled together in a frown. It was a sweet sentiment but something didn’t sit well with her. “Reed, you shouldn’t have to change for anyone.” His lips tilted up in a half grin. “I know. It’s the willingness that would be telling. And the right girl, would be willing to shape her world to include me in it too.”“Good answer, Mr. Collins,” she teased, even though she may have slightly melted on the inside.”

“My point is you cannot assume the motivations of others. You can judge but you have no idea what pushes people to make decisions that are unlawful or immoral. Sometimes , they may feel it is their only option.”

Perfectly flawed! This is an incredible journey to follow. Once I started reading I could NOT put the book down. It is exhausting chasing after fairy tales that don’t exist...but their fairytale is incredibly different and soooooo worth the read. If you have made it this far into my review I am not exactly sure what you are waiting want a sweet love story? Go somewhere else. You want an emotional feelcoaster that is witty, funny, but also enough to break your heart and put it back together??? This is the story you NEED! A MUST READ!
HASH(0xa7f1e708) out of 5 stars Enjoyable Read March 23 2016

Ashton Roberts just wants a place to call home. Somewhere she can feel safe, and not have to worry about her screwed up past coming to haunt her in the middle of the night. After a rough start in her life as a child, she was upgraded to a luxurious lifestyle of the rich, and not so famous due to her mother finally falling in love with the right person. But when a decision made by her mother goes wrong, it alters everything Ashton has ever wanted, or worked towards in her life. Sadly, Fate, and life are the world's conspirators, and no matter which direction she seemed to turn in life, it was never the right thing at the right time for her. Sure, she's got a great townhouse, an okay stepfather who has catered to just about one of her needs, and a job that at least pays the bills. The only thing she wants in her life is stability.

Then she runs into him. Reed Collins.

Her childhood protector (in a sense), and someone that had always been there for Ashton on the cold nights when nobody else was. A chance run in with him at a party leaves Ashton's world spinning. She remembered those baby blue eyes anywhere, and the way they used to gaze at her under hooded eyelids in High School. But what she doesn't know is that Reed Collins hides a secret. Not just from her, but from everybody. As their friendship grows into something more, it is no shock that the truth comes out, and leaves Ashton with more questions than anything else in her life. Can they overcome the simple fact that the past happened?

Fractured Palace isn't at all what I was expecting. It was a quick, enjoyable read that left the reader wondering what in the world Reed could be hiding. When it all comes to light, you won't want to set the book down. I felt that the first half of the book really dragged on. It wasn't until you realize Reed is hiding something that has you questioning his motifs, and hesitancy to be with Ashton that leaves your head spinning. I was a little upset by what happened, and understood immediately where Reed was so hesitant to let Ashton into his life, but my goodness!

The characters were well developed throughout the story. I did like the flashbacks between the two main characters because I felt like it helped see exactly what was going on without giving too much away. The plot line was well developed as well. A little slow to start off with like I stated above, but in the end it was completely worth it. A wonderful 4 Bars to RJ Loom on a really enjoyable read!
