Once Loved
Shattered Past # 2
Cecy Robson
Releasing Jan 20th, 2015

He’s the campus golden boy. She’s picking up the pieces of her broken past. But in Cecy Robson’s scorching novel of second chances—perfect for readers of Monica Murphy and J. Lynn—their differences only make their connection more explosive.

Every memory Lety Tres Santos has from her childhood comes with a scar—some emotional, some physical. Her father is an abusive drug addict, and her mother enables his destructive behavior. College offers Lety a fresh start . . . until her father finds a way to ruin that, too. Now, after losing her scholarship to kick off junior year, Lety must somehow stay in school, pay tuition, and turn a deaf ear to the whispers that follow her. And she intends to do it all without Brody Quaid’s help.

Brody is a lacrosse star, a 4.0 student—and as a freshman, he fell hard for the beautiful and spirited Lety. But their relationship crashed and burned because he couldn’t break through the walls she’s put up around her heart. With Lety hurting more than ever, Brody strives to win her back and make her believe in real love and true partnership. That will mean opening up secrets locked away in his own past—and trusting someone more than he’s ever dared.

Lety knows how painful it can be to depend on the wrong man. She also knows how much Brody wants to do this the right way. But it takes more than sizzling desire to move on and build a future together.

Well....Cecy Robson does it again...she sucks me in, makes me feel and spits me out...but always leave me feeling truly happy inside...ONCE LOVED is a WIN in my book! 

ONCE LOVED centers on Lety, who we meet in ONCE PERFECT as one of Teo's younger sisters.  ONCE LOVED begins about a year after ONCE PERFECT, and is almost a reunion story between Lety and her ex-boyfriend Brody, whom she broke up with after a horrible experience involving her highly abusive father, Carlos (let's just say I have no  love lost for Carlos).  

ONCE LOVED is a true romance, which means it is NOT easy for these two to finally have their happily ever after.  Lety is a truly broken young lady, maybe not so much on the outside but on the inside and she doesn't want to drag Brody from his world of privledge into her world of abuse and violence that lingers and follows her with each step she takes.

Cecy gets down to the nitty gritty with ONCE LOVED, she writes the truth that many of us would like to sweep under the rug, but this is some peoples reality and she brings that to light.  I love Lety (I loved her from ONCE PERFECT).  She has spunk and sass and is just trying to make a better life for herself without the help of a man.  And my love Brody, he just wants to take care of her, and I love him all the more for it.  (and Brody is DEFINITELY up there for Book Boyfriend status)

Let me sum this up by saying that ONCE LOVED is a story of strength and justice, and a truly wonderful addition to the series.  I am SOOO looking forward to Sofia and Killian's book.
