ARC Review: Fractured Sky by Catherine Cowles

Damaged. Broken. Destroyed. I’ve heard it all. A single moment of trusting the wrong person shattered my life into pieces, and my family has never looked at me the same. It’s impossible to convince them that I’m anything more than the broken girl they rescued all those years ago.

Until I meet him.

Ramsey’s grumpy demeanor and menacing scowl scare most of the world away. But not me. Not when I’ve seen his gentle hands soothe an abused colt or comfort a terrified mare.

And when I finally get up the courage to strike out on my own, Ramsey’s there. Roommates felt like such a safe proposition until Ramsey’s lingering touches and wicked smile light a fire in me I don’t think will ever be extinguished. And he feels it, too…

But just as my new life begins to take root, an evil from my past emerges from the shadows, casting a darkness on my newfound freedom. And this time, they won’t settle for pieces of me. They want everything…

I’ve been waiting for Shiloh’s story for this entire series and it did not disappoint. Her reality has been shaped by the unfortunate circumstances that befell her all those years ago. Every aspect of her life is affected by the pit of despair that formed in her soul during those darkest of days. Shiloh struggles to be a part of the world, relating far more to animals than to people. It’s been seventeen years since she was taken from her family, but it may as well have been yesterday, as her family seems to have frozen in time. She loves her family more than anything and she knows they have the best of intentions, but they’re smothering her. The entire Easton clan is so overprotective that it gets the best of her.

Shiloh likes to ride out to a neighboring ranch and watch Ramsey Bishop work miracles with battered horses. He has a gift and it’s a sight to see. They form a tentative friendship, but as they slowly get to know one another, Ramsey knows he needs more Shiloh in his life. The infamous recluse doesn’t need anyone and works hard to keep people away. His land is locked down and he avoids the outside world as much as possible. He doesn’t trust anyone, not after everything that he went through but all of his rules go out the window where Shiloh’s concerned. They come together over the horses but it’s really each other they’re healing, not just the animals. But things are never as they seem in Wolf Gap and grave danger lurks in wait for Shiloh. Can Ramsey help her find her tormentor before it’s too late? I loved Ramsey and Shiloh’s story. It’s a slow burn with tension for days and plenty of steam, with suspense to spare. This is the perfect end to a favorite series. I received an ARC from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.
