    1. 4 Stars! Loved Lety and Brody!A solid second installment in this series! Cecy Robson is a great storyteller and knows how to connect with the reader's emotions. Reader beware, there are some harsh, brutal cultural issues and the acceptance of this is addressed in Once Loved, which can be hard to swallow at times. But, let's face it matter your heritage, there's trash to be had, and Carlos was the garbage at the bottom of the pile, while Lety rose above it all, and blossomed into beauty, strength [...]


    2. Review Posted at: sweptawaybyromance/4 Emotional Stars!!!Well the one thing I can say about this series is your emotions definitely run the gauntlet!! One minute I’m smiling, then laughing, then almost in tears, and then madder than hell! And, the cycle starts all over again!!! EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER!I absolutely LOVED Brody and Lety, both are college students. Brody is an engineering student who’s the “big guy” on campus; he’s wealthy, an athlete, popular, well liked and very charism [...]


    3. 3.5 stars I originally rated it 3 stars, but I thought about it these days and decided to change my rating.I'm only giving it 3.5 stars because I really liked this book, but I did not love it. I read this one after a re-read of one of my favorite books ever so this may be the reason.This is book two in the "Shattered Past" series, but it can be read as a standalone. I haven't read Once Perfect, but I will most likely read it in the future.If you have read "Once Perfect", you already know about L [...]


    4. **ARC provided by Netgalley for an honest review!***Quotes may differ upon publication*4.5 "Pequeña" Stars!Someone like Brody was never supposed to fall for someone like me. I was a minority from the wrong side of town. He was the popular athelete who came from wealth and who all the pretty, drama-free girls swarmed, waiting for their chance to pounce.A perfect wealthy white boy.And a Cuban girl with a fucked up family.Good couple? I think not.But what if the perfect boy was just as broken as t [...]


    5. rating~ 4 starsLety Tres Santos had a difficult childhood, a victim of physical and emotional abuse by her father and a mother who refused to get any help. Which is why she grew up to be independent, a bit cynical and insecure about her worth as a human being and as a woman deserving of love. Brody Quaid is an engineering student and the lacrosse team’s co-captain. He is the golden boy in the campus, smart, handsome and extremely rich. But he not unlike Lety, also has family problems and a dif [...]


    6. 4.5 starsOnce Loved is the second book in Cecy Robson's new adult Shattered Past series and it's a real emotional roller coaster of a story. The series is just getting better and better and I absolutely loved both of these characters, Lety and Brody have been through so much but they're survivors who refuse to let their pasts define them.If you've read Once Perfect you'll already have met both characters, Lety is Mateo's sister so we've already seen some of her horrific family history. Her fathe [...]


    7. *4.5 stars*LOVED IT, but the subject matter was so hard to read aboutThat said, I ABSOLUTELY CAN'T WAIT for Killian and Sofia's story next!!!*ARC courtesy of Netgalley and Random House Publishing*


    8. Well.Cecy Robson does it againe sucks me in, makes me feel and spits me outbut always leave me feeling truly happy insideONCE LOVED is a WIN in my book! ONCE LOVED centers on Lety, who we meet in ONCE PERFECT as one of Teo's younger sisters. ONCE LOVED begins about a year after ONCE PERFECT, and is almost a reunion story between Lety and her ex-boyfriend Brody, whom she broke up with after a horrible experience involving her highly abusive father, Carlos (let's just say I have no love lost for C [...]


    9. • I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! •4 stars! Once Loved is the second book in the Shattered Past series but it can be read as a standalone.I didn't know that this was a series until just before I started reading this book but I saw in a review or two that this could be read as a standalone and I'm glad I read it.I really liked this one! I liked the relationship between Brody and Lety. They'd both been through so so much and I felt sorry for both of [...]


    10. I really enjoyed this book. Lety comes from a bad home life. Her dad is an awful human being who hits his wife and children. He's evil and Lety has had to work really hard to overcome her past. Brody is in love with Lety and has been from the first moment he met her but a year ago, Lety broke up with him because of her dad. Brody is so patient with Lety and he knows what he wants. This book had a couple surprises, especially regarding Brody. I loved the connection between these characters and I [...]


    11. Cecy weaves an ethnically diverse beautiful love story that centers around coming to grips with who you are, and where you came from, in order to move forward with the one you love. I hadn't even realized until I started reading this how few books I've read with latina heroines, and this was a refreshing change. I'm definitely eager to read more about this family, or from Cecy. The writing is beautiful, and so is the plot. It's a definite 5 story read!


    12. This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance SummaryLety let the damage of her past come between her and the man she met and fell in love with. But this time Brody isn't going to let her go without a fight. Brody fell in love with Lety but he knows that she is hurting and he refuses to let it continue to happen. But Lety has to do some damage control from what her father has done. She is at risk at losing her funding for school, and so she is going to have to work overtime to make it [...]


    13. 4.5 StarsComing from different sides of the track, Lety Tres Santos and Brody are opposites as can be. Lety is from a very abusive family with ongoing issues. She barely makes ends meet and to boot; she’s about to lose her scholarship. She is tired, jaded and feels unworthy to be with Brody, but she should know not to judge a book by its cover. Brody may be from the upper east side as they call it; he is rich and from a close knit family. He is smart, sporty with plenty of friends and girls at [...]


    14. So, after a bit of a shaky start - my pet peeve, aka push and pull, hit me upside the head virtually straight out the starting blocks. Then started the teetering on TSTL, however in this instance I got why she wanted to do things for herself. After the childhood she survived (I think it was way more than endured) she had serious trust issues and I absolutely adored how Brody managed to get in there.Brody, Brody, Brody - sigh . he's gone straight on my hero is perfection shelf. Seriously, this la [...]


    15. Loved this book and I am loving this series. Another wonderfully written contemporary romance from this author. This is Lety's story. The incredibly sweet hardworking Lety hasn't had an easy life but she has big dreams and is determined to reach them. Brody Quaid is wealthy, smart, athletic, and loves Lety with all he has. All he wants is to help her fulfill her dreams with him by her side but the secrets from both their pasts threaten to keep them apart.This is an incredibly emotional read and [...]


    16. ARC provided by Netgalley for an honest review3.5 stars.WOW! This book packed a seriously emotional punch. My heart broke for Lety. Brody's determination to win Lety's heart was definitely swoonworthy. While their journey to their HEA was definitely not easy in the end it was well worth it.


    17. **SHANYN'S REVIEW***4.5 Stars*I LOVED Lety and Brody’s story!!! You meet both characters in “Once Perfect”, and I was drawn to Brody right away. There was something about him, that I wanted more! I am so glad the second book was about them!!! I could NOT put this book down! There was just enough romance, angst, and humor. I am swooning over Brody!!!!“Someone like Brody was never supposed to fall for someone like me. I was a minority from the wrong side of town. He was the popular athlete [...]


    18. Wow I didn't love all over the first book but DANG *foot stomp*!! Lety and Brody's story was off 'da hook awesome! Full Review:Wow…I enjoyed Cecy Robson’s first book in her Shattered Past series, Once Perfect, but Once Loved blew that one out of the water for me! This was an intense romance.In the beginning, we have a romance that is already in trouble. Lety and Brody met their freshman year in college and fell in love. They were so perfect together. Events during the first book cause Lety t [...]


    19. Once Loved is an emotional but beautiful story about overcoming the past and healing with love. This was the first book I read from this new (non-paranormal) book series from the amazing Cecy Robson. The characters are intense , the storytelling even better. Combined with the romance a Must read and welcome installment to the New Adult series. I recommend it even if it's not the genre you normally come across this site :)Full review on ParanormalCravingsParanormal Cravings Book Reviews & FRE [...]


    20. So once again we are venture back in to the Santos lives, but this time we are with Lety.Lety is away at a private college, on a scholarship, thankfully escaping the abusive life with her father. Well she was, until her abusive father turned up at her college and Lety lost her scholarship. Faced with having to go back home or asking her brother and his wife for the money, Lety begs the Dean to allow her to take on yet another job (because one job, being the RA and being a nursing student is not [...]


    21. My goodness the prologue had my attention from the start and from there I could not put Once Loved down. Lety Tres Santos is really trying to escape her past and better her life, yet her past won't let her go without a fight. Lety seems to have a chip on her shoulder, not wanting others to help her out because she has always been able to do it herself. I can understand her, yet at times she was trying my patience. Despite others wanting to help her, because they loved her, she was too proud to a [...]


    22. I call dibs on Brody Quaid!!!! He's everything that I love in a BBF. He's smart, he's funny, he's kind, he's a little bit broken, but not enough to stand in the way of loving Lety. Oh and did I mention that he's HOT?!?Besides the fact that I fell in love with Brody from the very beginning of the book, I really fell in love with everything about this book. Lety has a heart of gold and thrives on helping others as a way to escape the shitty hand that life, ie her parents, have handed her. Her stor [...]


    23. Overcoming pain from the past is the main theme of this story and is what binds two apparent opposites together in making a future. Lety and Brody have both been put through the emotional wringer courtesy of her drunken and abusive father's continuing cruelty ending their burgeoning relationship before it barely started. Wanting to keep Brody safe had Lety pushing him away but a year later has both of them miserable and him charming his way back into her life. Their shared pain, and the masks of [...]


    24. *An ARC was provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.*After reading Once Perfect (Shattered Past #1), I could NOT wait for Once Loved to read Lety and Brody’s story. I loved Brody from the moment I met him in that first book. He was hilarious and I was instantly enamored with him. I’m happy to tell you that Brody lived up to all of my expectations. He was still funny as ever, but was also so sweet and absolutely head over heels for Lety, which was re [...]


    25. Just because our families are dysfunctional doesn’t mean that we are ruined to have a happily ever after, it might be that we protect ourselves a little bit more to heartache.This is the second installment in the Shattered Past series and I was enthralled with this story. I totally lost myself with the storyline and the characters. I was an emotional read that had me tearing up a couple of times. Sometimes it’s hard to read about physical and emotional abuse in the home and especially when i [...]


    26. Coming from different sides of the track, Lety Tres Santos and Brody are opposites as can be. Lety is from a very abusive family with ongoing issues. She barely makes ends meet and to boot; she’s about to lose her scholarship. She is tired, jaded and feels unworthy to be with Brody, but she should know not to judge a book by its cover. Brody may be from the upper east side as they call it; he is rich and from a close knit family. He is smart, sporty with plenty of friends and girls at his beck [...]


    27. OMG Yippieeeeeee, more 'Shattered Past' goodness. I absolutely, positively LOVED the first book in this series, Once Perfect. And it got BETTER with this book, Once Loved! ~~ I have actually read this story TWICE since receiving the ARC from NetGalley!!! EVERYONE SHOULD BE READING THIS AUTHOR!Right off the bat, I'm going to tell you that incorporating Evie and Teo (from Once Perfect) in this book and seeing them again and their growth AND making them an integral part of the story line was FANTA [...]


    28. What an emotional read. I am still reeling with what this book just did to me and my heart.Lety and Brody. They seem to come from different worlds: he's rich and she's not. He comes from a seemingly well to do and upstanding family; she comes from an abusive one. But when the layers are pulled back and everything is painstakingly revealed, this troubled couple realize they are more alike than they ever thought possible.The author took me on one heartwrenching journey. The reunion for Lety and Br [...]


    29. This is the second book in the Shattered Past trilogy. It is about Lety, the younger sister of Mateo from the first book. She is a college student from an abusive home trying to get away from the abuse, and Brody, the easy going millionaire that she meets and falls in love with. Lety met and fell in love with Brody during their freshman year. Due to the tragedy that is her family, she broke up with him, feeling she wasn't good enough to date him. They run into each other during their third year [...]


    30. Cecy Robson's Shattered Past series is an emotional rollercoaster, one minute it's all fun and smiles and the next my heart could break it's so sad.Brody and Lety return from book 1. Lety has had a lot of pain and abuse in her family which holds her back where relationships are concerned, she feels it's safer all round to not get involved. Brody doesn't agree, he understands how she feels as his family isn't so great either, despite the fact that they are very wealthy, but after a year apart wan [...]
