Smashed into Pieces

Clear Water Creek Chronicles, #2

Sheriff Brandon Schofield is highly attracted to Clear Water Creek's new arrival, Finn Austen. Finn is living an unhappy life and Brandon hopes to change that. Finn's past partner was an abusive man. When Finn's partner shows up can Brandon save Finn or will Finn loose his life?

Smashed into Pieces has a well written domestic abuse storyline. It was sad as well as good. It was sad because of the abuse, but good when Finn came out of his shell for Brandon. Overall thought I didn't like Finn. He was just so weak and it was distracting to the story. It made me wonder if he was capable of even healing. For a rescue story this one was OK.

Brandon is desperate to break down his defences and win Finn's love and trust but time is running out and perhaps he can only protect Finn for so long.
