If you have not read The One Left Behind, this synopsis will be a spoiler to that book.
Addison's life was shattered a year ago when she was left with no memory of her fiancé. When Pierce entered her life she thought she was on the mend until her memories of Colin came back.
With having all her old memories flooding back, Addison is left faced with the consequences of the decision she made to move on with another man.
Now faced with loving two men Addison must find it in her heart who her soul mate is without breaking the heart of the other.
Will Addison run away leaving everyone with shattered lives or make a decision that will mend hearts?

I just finished Shattered Lives Mended Hearts and I really liked it.  If you have read the series then you know this is the second one while the first one is The One Left Behind.  Addison Pierce and Colin and all in turmoil.  Addison was engaged to Colin when they were in a car accident.  She lost her short term memory and didn't remember who Colin was, as she was trying to regain her memory she meets Pierce.  What turns out as an innocent friendship develops into love between them.  She doesn't regain her memory until she is walking down the aisle to meet Pierce to get married.  That is how the 1st book ends.  She remembers.  Now we have this book which is going through their lives while she tries to make a decision.  Who will she choose, Pierce or Colin?  I can tell you that it was a hard decision but you will have to read and see who she chooses...

I really liked the story and I thought that it flowed really well.  I loved how it was in in Addison, Pierce and Colin's point of view.  You really got to see how they were all feeling and why they made the decisions that they made. For Addison, it really is a hard decision.  Once the memories return, her feelings for Pierce remain the same.  She definitely had a hard decision.  I was on the fence, I loved both of them and I had no idea who she was going to choose.  Once things started to change I knew who it was going to be.  Did it take away from the story, no it did not.  I still enjoyed it.

I loved all the secondary characters and love how the author set up the next ones.  I saw it coming but can’t wait to see how it turns out.

I loved how her friends were giving good advice and was glad that they were there to keep their heads on straight while Addison had to decide what to do. 

This story will take our on an emotional ride but like Addison.  Who would you chose?  Might not be as easy as you think...

She doesn’t mutter a word, she simply nods and that’s all the acknowledgment I need. Still cupping her jaw, I lean in and kiss her ever so softly, peppering her with small, slow kisses all over her mouth. I pull back for a fraction of a second to gauge her reaction and her eyes are still closed and she has a fistful of my shirt clenched in one hand. I snake one arm around the back of her waist and the other holding the back of her neck as I draw her close to me again, aligning our bodies perfectly against each other. Hearing her slight gasp spurs me on as I seal my lips over hers again. This time I’m not giving her soft pecks, and when she opens her mouth the tiniest bit, I take my tongue and run it along the inside of her lips. When her tongue reaches out to touch mine, I’m lost. I pour every ounce of passion, love, and devotion into this one kiss. I kiss her like my life depends on it. When I pull back, we are both breathless and there’s a fire in her eyes that I’ve missed seeing. I know exactly what her eyes are telling me, but unfortunately we can’t take it to that level tonight.
