Goodreads * Amazon * Audiobook

 Shattered is a cleverly woven vampire tale. It's an erotic thriller with questionable morals. The story is a full-length novel, however, leaves the door open for more. It's the start of a series. Vampires live forever, but their humanity doesn't always shine through. The story tells the tale of two men. One bored with life the other wants things he cannot have. Being a vampire gives Soloman the illusion of everything he wants but the underlining truth is deadly. The problem is he's immortal and he has an eternity to get what he wants.

Drake doesn't know the meaning of living until he meets Ebony. To the outside world, it looks like he has everything a man should want but he's never experienced true love until he meets her. 

This book is intended for the adult audience and contains a lot of sexual content. As this tale unfolds we see a tangled web which can only lead to more trouble. 

It took me a while to get used to the narrator in this audiobook, but the story had some interesting twists. 3.5 stars out of 5. ARC received in exchange for an honest review. This book has a lot of descriptive detail.

Charlene is a Waynesburg, Pennsylvania native. She went to Waynesburg High School and graduated Cum Laude from Waynesburg College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts. Currently lives in Sacramento, California where she spent the last 33 years working at Northrop Grumman.

Books have always been her passion. She started reading at an early age and progressed to full-length books by age nine. The first supernatural book series she read was Dark Shadows, and it sparked her interest in all things paranormal, with a spicy touch of romance mixed in for good measure. She also started writing poetry in grade school and continues to do so today. 

Being an avid reader, the consummate daydreamer and an incurable romantic with a Cinderella complex, she started creating her own characters and story lines because she realized she had her own stories to tell.

She is married to John, who believes she can do anything. She has a son, Ty; a daughter, Danika; and four beautiful grandchildren, Aries, Victoria, Maya, and Tobias.

Besides reading and writing, she also enjoys photography, travel, music, and great movies.
