If you're going to write about a self-deprecating girl who constantly belittles and demeans herself, you need to at least let her eventually come to the realization that she doesn't have to debase herself, and that mary lindsey shattered souls really is worthy of respect and healthy male attention.


But if this never happens? If the main character never learns to respect herself?

Books by Mary Lindsey

How am I the reader supposed to respect her? I honestly wish that Lenzi had developed into a strong and confident character.

But this never happened. And it made me sad. Whom I affectionately like to call Zak the Asshat.


Where do I even begin with how much I loathed this crappy excuse for a love interest? Zak the Asshat was hands down the biggest jerk-wad I think I have ever read about.

And what's worse, he was passed off as actually being in the running for Lenzi's heart! Oh, you heard me right. Which brings me to mary lindsey shattered souls I hated most about this book-- the dysfunctional, abusive and completely NOT romantic relationship between Lenzi and Zak.

So after everything that Zak puts her through, Lenzi goes right back to him so she can appease her mountain of insecurity, essentially turning into a total doormat and making out with the ground he walks on for the next something chapters.

A Good Addiction: Book Review: Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey

Because, you know, God forbid she lose this absolutely perfect specimen of male chivalry. Yes, I know she goes off with Alden to do her whole Ghost-Speaker thing, but here's what grinds my gears: Lenzi never gets a clue about what a dirt bag this guy mary lindsey shattered souls was-- and what really scared me was that the author never seemed to have a clue either, because even by the very end, Lenzi was still spouting about how Zak was such a "cool mary lindsey shattered souls and her only "real friend.

Actually, he was a controlling, possessive, alcoholic, and even dangerous and abusive psycho. And I'm not OK with that never being addressed. I'm NOT OK with that kind of a person being passed off to potentially young and impressionable readers as being romantic or attractive.

To hammer home my point, there is even one point at the end of the book where Lenzi gets into a car with drunk Zak told you she's not the brightest crayon in the boxand tells him it's all her fault that their relationship failed and that she's a freak who isn't good enough for him-- this is the same guy, I'll mention one more time, who abandoned her in a bad neighborhood at night on her birthday, and possessively stalked her to the point where the police should have been involved!

Shattered Souls (Souls, #1) by Mary Lindsey

If I had to hear Zak say "babe" at the end of one more sentence, the book would have gotten hurled across Starbucks. Not really, mary lindsey shattered souls was a library book-- and I wouldn't want to knock over anyone's triple venti macchiato-- but you know, in theory. Seriously, give mary lindsey shattered souls a fa-reaking break.

Let me introduce you to Alden, Lenzi's second love interest, whom I affectionately like to refer to as Asshat 2.

Shattered Souls (Souls , book 1) by Mary Lindsey

Alden is Lenzi's Protector who keeps her safe from all the big, bad Malevolents. Yes, I kid you not, it actually says in the book that Alden Asshat 2 is turned on by Lenzi's fear and pain.

This electrifying tale will take you on an unexpected journey into a secret world of witchcraft and shape shifters.

Romance, adventure, and magic!


Lindsey leaves you breathless and wanting more.
