FRACTURED MINDS is Book 3 in the REBELS OF SANDLAND series by Nikki J Summers. It is a New Adult standalone. (But you really want to read the entire series in sequence to be sure to get the most out of it and TOTALLY RECOMMEND the audiobooks, narrated by Shane East and Faye Adele!)
Again, the author doesn't disappoint. Summers does it again. This book is upset of the Rebels of Sandland series but we also meet the dark side of our beloved Soldiers of Anarchy series.
The book features Finn, falling in love with Effy. They know each other since school days, are part of the same group of friends but couldn't be anymore different. The way mostly silent Finn eventually opens up to Effy, with his much compassion she loves and cares for him, touched my heart deeply. There is a lot of dark but it's never too much,too overwhelming.
And there are lighter scenes, too. My favourite one of those is definitely when shy Finn, frozen in fear, finds herself sitting between Effy's parents on the couch drinking a beer and discovers that not all families have to be traumatizing and dysfunctional. It made me laugh so much!
The narrators are absolutely amazing. The way they bring story and characters to life is a feast for the senses.
Once again, time and money well spent and the perfect audiobook to unwind after a crazy busy week. The boys let off the steam for you! And the tender moments, the lotalty between the friends, and the love in their family of hearts is so moving. I can't wait for the next installment!
Please heed those trigger warnings!
