Riley Miller wants nothing more than to leave her past behind and never speak of it again. The damage caused by what has happened has made her build walls keeping people out. Starting over isn’t easy. After a move to Cape Cod to escape the dark and haunting secrets, she meets Abby and Evan. Instantly becoming best friends, shy and quiet Riley tries to break out of her shell with the help from her new friends. Just as she begins to settle into a comfortable routine, Riley meets Evan’s friend Dustin.
Life as Riley knows it will never be the same.
Looking for love is the last thing on Dustin’s to do list, if it’s even on there at all. Living with some significant secrets of his own, Dustin tries to keep from getting in too deep with anyone. But, he finds himself drawn to the timid, yet stunning Riley. Can they both accept the past and develop a relationship? Or will the skeletons in both of their closets keep them from ever moving on?
A Tattered Love by Nickie Seidler has the potential to be a great book, but for me there was something missing. And, what’s frustrating is I can’t quite put my finger on what it is. I mean this book has everything that real life relationships have: miscommunication, hurt, lies, deceit, and someone trying to find their way in this crazy world. Even though I didn’t completely connect with A Tattered Love, it is well-written by Nickie Seidler and I will check out future works by her!
