    One thought on “Fractured Palace”

    1. The first years of Aston’s life were not always happy, but one thing she could count on was that the boy next door would always look out for her. Her mother would parade dozens of new boyfriends through the house, her need for drugs and alcohol more than her need to care for her only child. When she cleaned up and found a wealthy man to lover her, Ashton’s life should have gotten better, but her stepfather was cold, hard and brittle, although he did continue to be responsible for Ashton afte [...]

    2. I've waited a bit to write my review. I needed to let the immediate high a readers gets after finishing a great book settle or all you were going to get what gibberish.Ashton Roberts and Reed Collins are super. Just super. All I could think the ENTIRE time was "What the hell is Reed hiding?" He pissed me off a few times, but that was definitely the intention of the author. The dude just, gah! acted human, I guess. he screwed up and didn't know how to fix it. So he bolts. But Ashton is, well she' [...]

    3. This was such a sweet, thoughtful story. I truly loved Reed and Ash, even though sometimes I wanted to lovingly smack Reed (with an iron chair). They were perfect for each other in the most believable way and I was cheering for them to make it even though I knew it wouldn't be easy.Ash had a complicated childhood but she rose above it and became a person I would be proud to know and call friend.Reed He had so much guilt inside that it seemed as if he couldn't see the great man that *we* could cl [...]

    4. 'Fractured Palace,' is the first book I've read by R. J. Loom. This book was wonderful, and definitely not what I expected. The plot twistd and turns kept me reading.What I really like about this book is that it is not your typical romance novel. This book had all the feelings that real life bring, it was not an unrealistic fairy tail. It was gritty, sad, happy, sexy, hot and sizzling all wrapped up into a wonderfully written plot.Well done R.J. Loom! I'm looking forward to reading more of your [...]

    5. Well, I am not sure what to do now. This book has left me on a high I just can't explain. Ashton is well she is I think one of my all time favorite people ever! She is so real I feel like she could be my best friend. Reed he is just messed up and lovable enough to be perfect! This story will hold you from page one till the very end. I highly suggest this book! It's definitely a must read for any one who loves love story's!! Was given this book in return for a honest review.

    6. 4.5/5.0In “Fractured Palace” the author captures the bittersweet love between Ashton and Reed.Read full review in the 2016 July/August issue of InD'tale Magazine.

    7. Fractured Palace is AMAZING!!! I adored these two together. AND I want a Reed of my own. I also love when RJ went back to show their history together and how Reed cared for Ashton when they were young and still does. You will love this book

    8. * * ARC given on behalf of obsessed by books for an honest review * * Loved this, loved the characters. Ashton and Reed are real, they both go through so much you can't help but love them.

    9. Oh my gods! Wow! Put your pajamas on, get your tissues, and settle in for the long haul. This is not a story that you can just pick up and put down whenever you get tired, need to eat, or even go to the bathroom. This is a story of love, sacrifice, and finding one’s self. Perfectly flawed fairytale!We start the story off with Ashton. She is at a party and has to make a split decision to call her stepdad to pick her up. After she is picked and is gearing for an arguement they go look for her mo [...]

    10. Ashton Roberts just wants a place to call home. Somewhere she can feel safe, and not have to worry about her screwed up past coming to haunt her in the middle of the night. After a rough start in her life as a child, she was upgraded to a luxurious lifestyle of the rich, and not so famous due to her mother finally falling in love with the right person. But when a decision made by her mother goes wrong, it alters everything Ashton has ever wanted, or worked towards in her life. Sadly, Fate, and l [...]

    11. This book is beautifully written! I love how it isn't your fluffy romance and has some real substance. There are characters who love deeply, but are human and far from perfect. Both main characters need to deal with some very intense issues and both need to forgive themselves and each other in order to move on. Ashton and Reed formed a bond when they were children, but life happens and they lose touch until fate steps in. As they discover their feelings never went away for each other, they also [...]

    12. This book really does take you through so many emotions. You feel so bad for everything that Ashton has experienced and the knock on effects that this had on her. Reed made choices in his life that have lead him to meeting back up with the girl next door. When they collide the Sparks fly! I spent a lot of this book trying to guess what secret Reed was hiding and I have to say that I didn't guess this one! The way that all of the characters had their own internal struggles and how the through had [...]

    13. Fractured Palace has got to be one of my top favourite books. I couldn't put it down, I loved all the characters and how RJ drew me in with the story and the characters that she made so loveable. Once you've started you've got to finish, Fractured Palace is addictive. Without giving away any spoilers, because you'll have to read for yourself, you don't be disappointed. I love how the story develops and shows the history between the characters. I'll have to read again and can't wait to read more [...]

    14. Fractured palace brings to mind basically a fractured home in my mind and basically that is what it means. Poor Ashton never understood how anyone could say home is where the heart is because she was never happy or stable in any of her homes growing up. This is something that she wants to fix and wants to get her degree, make her own way, and make her own stable life. The problem is that things do not always work out the way that you want, or need them to. Then she meets Reed who is a blast from [...]

    15. This book had so much to offer. Love, generosity, secrets, and tragedy. It was hard to write a review because I was so touched by the book. It's really well written and doesn't stick to the billionaire boyfriend and damsel in distress so readily available in the Contemporary Romance genre. Ashton (Ash) is a young woman looking for the love she never quite received at home. Reed is her next door neighbor with a few secrets to keep. Growing up Ash has a mom who cares more about her next fix, her n [...]
