Riley Miller wants nothing more than to leave her past behind and never speak of it again. The damage caused by what has happened has made her build walls keeping people out.

Instantly becoming best friends, shy and quiet Riley tries to break out of her shell with the help from her new friends. Just as she begins to settle into a comfortable routine, Riley meets Evan’s friend Dustin.

Life as Riley knows it will never be the same.

Looking for love is the last thing on Dustin’s to do list, if it’s even on there at all. Living with some significant secrets of his own, Dustin tries to keep from getting in too deep with anyone. But, he finds himself drawn to the timid, yet stunning Riley. Can they both accept the past and develop a relationship? Or will the skeletons in both of their closets keep them from ever moving on?

paragraph divider 18***Stephenee, #NerdGirlSteph’s Review***

This is the second book by Nickie Seidler that I have read and I enjoyed it almost as much as the first (you always love your first in some way, don’t you?!?). She has a unique writing style that I really enjoy, she uses point of views from several of the characters throughout the book as well as the “new” type of texting in the books. The story flows smoothly from start to finish and it wraps up nice and tidy at the end. She never loses the reader and never makes you wonder what is going on, it is a smooth read.

The characters are strong, resilient, hard working and fun to read about. I loved how they were all so different from each other but they blended together and made some awesome friendships throughout book. They had a great bond with one another and it was obvious that they’d always have each others backs! The journey that Riley and Dustin decided to take together, was going to be a very bumpy one and they knew this right from the start. There was plenty of passion, romance, angst, lust, tension, hurt, lies, and even deceitful in laws…. there was barely any down time for these characters and all of the drama they were going through. The story continued to take a lot of twists and turns, some of which were expected and some that were not. A Tattered Love is a book about two people fighting for love and accepting the other person as they are, even if there are things that the others kept from each other. It wasn’t a happy, everything is perfect, and we’re in love type of story, but a heartbreaking, hard, life is real story that could happen to anyone that reads it.

Make sure that you add this onto your TBR list and pick it up soon, as Nickie has another book that was just released and you don’t want to get too far behind in your Nickie Seidler reading list! I have decided that she is one of my new favorite authors and can’t wait to catch the next book! Enjoy the story of Riley, Dustin and friends, it’s a great one!!
