Shattered Illusions by Anna James Book Review .

Hi, welcome to Page Flipperz , today I have the last book in the Bradford sisters Trilogy and I must say I have enjoyed Anna's stories much so.. Today I have for you the review for Shattered Illusions. - Book three in the series.

Find the blurb, book cover and also links to the other books in the series.


Shattered Illusions  Book Three

Two years ago Kate Bradford met Raffaello D’Onofrio while attending a semester abroad. Rafe ran the family vineyard in the Lazio region of Italy but the thing that attracted her to him most, besides his ruggedly handsome good looks, fathomless deep blue eyes and well-toned body, was his love of art. It was a passion they shared together.

He had been the perfect man as far as she was concerned and in a few short months she fell deeply in love. She had thought that love was returned. Then she found Annalisa De Luca in his apartment wearing nothing but the shirt Rafe had been wearing the evening before. All her illusions were shattered. Distraught and wanting to escape the pain of Rafe’s betrayal, she returned to her home in Chicago, IL.






My thoughts


Raffe and Kate have a past - A past that was shattered by Illusions if you may call it that. Raffe has come back to find out why Kate left him 4 years prior,even if his means,  is selfish he figures he will get some answers. The romance takes off - and they both find themselves yearning for the love they missed out.. Love - betrayl and lies come forth once again..

Anna James has created a wonderfully written romantic story filled with compelling characters.

A short but sweet read, Anna includes all the goodies one could want in a romance story. Smexy moments, great characters and a storyline and plot that will have you reading this story from begining to end in one sitting. I enjoyed all the characters that Anna put forth, Raffe was certainly a hotty !! ** swoon ** lol.. Anna puts forth enough descriptions in her stories for the reader to feel as though they are in the book. I love this in a read, being able to envisage as if it was me . :)

The cover is smokin - Ive really enjoyed this series to date , and also the fact that Anna brought forth the characters from the previous books to give us that extra depth within the characters. Family means everything .

If you after a sweet, short romance, Then this series is for you.



4/5 Heart Throbs.

A little about Anna James.  - I was born in Connecticut and lived there until I was nine years old. My family and I spent the next eleven years living in Williamsville, a suburb just outside of Buffalo, NY. I returned to Connecticut after receiving my associates degree in Engineering Science and went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. I continue to live in Connecticut with my husband and children. I am a romantic at heart and enjoy reading and writing romance novels.
