*REVIEW* "Shattered Ties (Ties #1)" by K.A. Robinson

Reviewer: Donna

Rating: 5 Stars


I really got into this story from the start. We have Emma who has a snobby rich mother who frowns upon lower class people and we have Jesse. He lives with is Mother in a trailer park and barely make ends meet. Two totally different people but they cant deny the attractive between them.

I loved how Emma was nothing like her mother and saw Jesse as her equal. Throughout the entire book, they had to overcome a lot of obstacles to be together.

The characters were really easy to love and I loved that there was an underlying message throughout the story that you shouldn't judge people by whether there rich or poor. From the start, I had a hard time putting it down as it was definitely a book that drew you in, I absolutely loved it. This is the first book I've read by this author but it certainly wont be the last. Highly recommend this book. Really looking forward to book two.


With a former supermodel mother and a rock-and-roll legend father, Emma Preston has the best of everything. Nothing is as perfect as it seems though. After her parents divorce, she’s forced to live with her mother in a private Santa Monica community. Ignoring their parental roles, her mother becomes more focused on climbing the social ladder while her father is off on tour.

Growing up in a trailer park with his mother, Jesse is used to people looking down on him. When his mother begs him to submit an application for a scholarship to one of Santa Monica’s top private schools, he never expects to actually get it. When he does, he is forced to attend school with a bunch of rich kids. He ignores their stares as they judge him for having tattoos and a less than impressive car. As long as he has his surfboard and the guys at the tattoo shop, he knows he can make it through.

When Jesse shows up on the first day of school, Emma can’t help but be intrigued. Her mother would never approve of Emma talking to someone so poor, but she doesn’t care because something about Jesse draws her to him.

Jesse tries to hate Emma, but he discovers that he can’t resist her. Forced to hide their relationship from Emma’s mother and everyone else around them, things start to fall apart. When Jesse’s friend, Ally, decides to interfere, things go from bad to worse.

Can they survive their first love? Or will they be left with nothing more than shattered ties?

Book 1 of a 2 book series.
