Last October I read Shiver, the first book in the Unbreakable Bonds series, which completely blew me away. Heller and I had a great discussion about it here. I completely fell for the four friends and really couldn’t wait for any tidbit of information about upcoming books. When I read the blurb and found out who was going to be the focus of Shatter I was really excited.
Book 2 of the Unbreakable Bonds Series
Maverick trauma surgeon Ashton “Snow” Frost keeps the world at a distance, relying only on his three closest friends to keep him connected. But when a ghost from their past returns to Cincinnati, Snow stands to lose everyone he loves. Framed for murder and reeling from attacks on his friends, Snow is pushed to his breaking point.
Jude Torres won’t let the doc shatter. The paramedic has been attracted to the doctor since he first laid eyes on him at the hospital, even if the arrogant, solitary man doesn’t fit into any of his plans. One hot, reckless kiss shows that Snow isn’t who he appears to be. And one night together will never be enough. Jude will fight for the doc.
Fight to keep him whole. Fight to keep him safe. Fight to simply keep him.
Thanks to Jocelynn and Rinda I am pleased to present to you the cover for Shatter and a special treat hidden in spoiler tags under the cover. Enjoy!
[spoiler]“The nurse said he’s hours past his shift,” a woman said. “He looks too tired to drive home. Maybe you could take him?”
The low voice and shuffling noises tugged at him, trying to pull him from sleep, but exhaustion rode him so hard, Jude just sort of floated under the words, hardly understanding. A twinge in his neck kept him from succumbing back to sleep completely.
“He sat with me the whole time,” she continued, her voice closer. “He’s wonderful. Pretty, too, huh doctor?”
Someone touched his shoulder. He blinked up into blue eyes that held a surprisingly warm look. He’d never seen that expression on the man before. His eyes dropped to the doctor’s lips as he spoke. Jude didn’t hear the words this time, but he did take in the deep groove in the center over his upper lip—one that gave his mouth the sexiest curve. The doctor’s lower lip was fuller. Bite-able. He had another groove in his chin and Jude wanted to put his tongue in it.
“Beautiful Doc Frost,” he murmured, liking this dream as his heartbeat picked up.
Blue eyes flared wide.
A woman chuckled behind the doctor leaning over him. A woman didn’t belong in his sex dreams and for a moment, Jude frowned in confusion. Then he reached up and slid his palm behind the doctor’s neck, pulling him down so it would only be the two of them. “Come on,” he said softly. “We should go to bed. Wanna feel you against me.” He pressed his lips to the doctor’s, opened his mouth and licked along that sexy divot over the doc’s lips. Heat shot through him and a groan rumbled from deep inside.
Doctor Frost snapped back, straightening, his hand going up to his mouth. He touched his lips and those eyes narrowed, filling with so much fire, Jude squirmed in his seat. Then Jude’s cocoon burst as realization came to him. He’d kissed the surgeon general.[/spoiler]
