A Shattered Moment by Tiffany King


From Penguin:

In the new series by the bestselling author of the Woodfalls Girls novels, six friends—fresh from high school graduation—discover that the future can come at you from out of nowhere.

This is Mackenzie’s story…

Mackenzie Wilson once had hope for what life had to offer, but everything changed on the night of her graduation. A year later, the only way she can find comfort is by keeping her head down and hoping she remains unnoticed at college.

When Bentley James discovered Mac in that twisted SUV, he was just a newbie EMT on his first call. It was a gut-wrenching moment that made him realize not everyone can be saved—and sometimes they don’t want to be.

A chance encounter on campus brings Bentley back into Mac’s life. Despite her initial resistance, he sets out to discover the girl hiding beneath a shield of seclusion. He evokes painful memories in Mac—but also feelings. As the spark between them grows, Mac must decide if she can let go of the past and believe in something as fragile as love…

A Shattered Moment is a beautifully tragic story about grief, survival, and love.  Mac is recovering from a nightmare.  Unfortunately, Bentley was there and reminds her of the horror she faced - at least at first.  As Mac learns to live again, if Bentley truly wants her, he will have to put his exceptional patience to the test.  Mac and Bentley's journey is touching and a little bit heartbreaking.  

ASM was my first Tiffany King and I'm hooked.  The emotional books aren't really my thing, but King may have converted me with this wonderful book.  I really cannot recommend this book enough and it may make an appearance on my Top Ten of 2015 list.  :-)
