Publisher Description

He's the bad influence they're always warning us about.

And I'm the girl who should know better.

Hunter Reed is off limits. Not only because he's a walking grenade who talks with his fists but because he doesn't worship the right God.

We grew up adjacent, not together. Our houses are divided by a creek, but our lives are divided by our prejudices, our pain, and a religion I don't have the courage to leave. But lately I find myself unable to look away from him. He's seeping in, becoming the best and worst parts of this small-town life. And I have no idea what to do with these feelings growing inside me.

Whatever this is between us, it's going to destroy us both…

Annie Wilson is a Jehovah's Witness, a good girl, and deeply unhappy. Everyone can see that. She's just too busy knocking on people's doors to realise it. But there's a shift in her lately. She's waking up and getting curious about the world she's been shielded from. And of all the people she could turn to during her rebellious stage, she picks me.

I don't know why I play along. Maybe to stop her from doing something she'll regret. But where's the line? Because there's no coming back from the place we're headed.

Annie can pray all she wants, but no God of hers can save us from each other…

Shards of You and Me is a high-angst stand-alone forbidden romance packed with family drama. It contains language and themes intended for mature readers.

Trigger warnings: Child sexual abuse and alcoholism.

It is 4am and I have cried tears of joy and sorrow!!! This book was absolutely bitter sweet.

The beautiful novel reminded me of how hard love is. As a daughter, a lover and a friend.

Wow just wow. I read this in a day I couldn’t put it down. Just a wonderful book. The storyline was brilliant and so compelling. Rich characters with great thoughtful writing. An amazing insight into the world of religion. I think Tanya’s writing just gets better and better.

Shards of you and me a must read for all

I received an ARC of this book from Tanya Bird, every time I read one of Tanya’s books I think it is the best. This book is no different, once I started reading I couldn’t put the book down. Tanya has a way of making you feel part of the story, you feel all the emotions, from tears to laughter.
I loved Hunter and Annie’s story, the struggles Annie had with her faith and upbringing in the Jehovah’s Witness faith and Hunter with his alcoholic father and the loss of his mother.
Their journey to happiness was a rollercoaster of emotions.
I can’t wait to see what Tanya writes next.
This is a must read for all
