  • Boy do I love a good romantic suspense, one that doesn t skimp on the romance or the suspense for that matter, and Fragile really delivered on both counts I loved the author s detailed characterizations of the hero and heroine she gave plenty of background info about each I felt that I knew them well enough to guess how they would react in certain situations I love when an author takes the time to do that it makes the story flow and also makes it believable This was no fairytale romance, either [...]


  • Liked this one 3.5 Stars Six years after trading in his combat gear for hospital scrubs, Luke Rafferty still hasn t found what he s been searching for a normal life.For Devon Manning, being a social working is a rewarding job, but also a constant reminder of her own troubled youthWhen Luke meets Devon, he thinks he might have found what he s been loooking for, but in order to get the life he wants, Luke has to break through Devon s emotional barriers and make her realize that his healing touch m [...]


  • When you decide to read this book you really have to be in the right frame of mind for something dark and serious it s no light and fluffy the world is a beautiful place romance novel, but it s very good and will take you to hell and back on that emotional roller coaster ride Some of the subject matter child abuse, rape, drug addiction may not be for everyone as it s downright horrifying at times, but the author presented it very well all the while saying that if someone loves you enough and you [...]


  • 4 stars Romantic SuspenseFragile is an emotional roller coaster ride of a book with equal parts romance and suspense The hero Luke is an ex Army Ranger turned ER doctor with some emotional and physical battle scars who falls fast and hard for social worker Devon, who has a very tortured past and some seriously deep emotional scars of her own Luke has to overcome her resistance, emotional barriers, and slowly gain her trust in order to have a relationship with her I was impressed with Walker s th [...]


  • Whew My heart is still racing after finishing Fragile by Shiloh Walker This is an expanded version of an e book story titled Share and Share Alike , but even though I had already read the e book, I was still riveted to the pages of the expanded novel The tension was high, the mystery was intricate with plenty of suspects, and the sex was hot, hot, hot.Devon survived the death of her parents only to end up the victim of a child molester After running away, she spiraled down into drugs and life on [...]


  • Rating 4.5 5Such an emotional book This was a total roller coaster ride to read The heroine really tugs at your heartstrings I was sucked into the story right from the beginning And the suspense plot adds a really nice aspect to the book.Fragile is the story of Devon Manning, a woman who was dealt a really lousy hand early in life After her parents died, she went to live with an aunt who married a man who sexually abused her After he went to jail, her aunt kicked her out and Devon, already hooke [...]


  • Thoroughly enjoyed this nicely written, romantic suspense set in Kentucky and I hope there will be a sequelLuke was a wonderful character, former Special Forces, now doctor and how he slowly managed to get under Devin s skin was very touching Devin was a 26 year old social worker with an awful lot of bad history on her plate She and Luke ran into each other at the hospital from time to time The story started out kind of slow, building up the necessary history about Luke and his twin brother, Qui [...]


  • This is definatly not a feel good romance I had read some reviews about this one, but wasn t fully prepared for heartwrenching stuff that happens throughout the heroines life The suspense is very good, and I thought I knew who the bad guy was and I was suprised when it was revealed It got rough for me when the herione is traumatized near the end, and she pushes the hero away and he is broken over it I was just so sad for him I felt the end was not a full HEA for some reason I think that s why I [...]


  • Some parts were a little dark in this book but the suspense was good and the characters were engaging The poor heroine had so much bad stuff happen to her that I was worried about her reclaiming a normal life but I think the author made her strong enough to come to terms with it I like how the hero was able to accept the heroine as she was and was a very patient compassionate man who was willing to give her what she needed to be his lover Very good book overall.


  • Excellent Lots of suspense and very HOT Dr.Luke, ex special forces, man s man, lady s dream I could not put this book down Just when you think you have it figured out it starts all over again I m looking forward the next book, BrokenQuinn s story, and with his past it should be a good one Oh those Rafferty brothers


  • Luke Rafferty is searching for something He s not exactly sure what that something is but he definitely knows that something is missing in his life Discharged from the Army Rangers after nearly shattering his leg, it was either a desk or teach Luke chose life instead Now, six years later, Luke works as ER doctor in Lexington, Kentucky, but he still hasn t found what he s been searching for until one night, while on his shift, he meets a social worker and her young charge that has suffered abuse [...]


  • Fragile is the first book I ve read by this author, and I really enjoyed her writing style.I love romantic suspense, even though the romance is often secondary to the suspense In Fragile, the romance is front and centre, and very satisfying There were actually times when not much was happening in the way of action, and I was wondering if this wasn t a contemporary romance than romantic suspense.Which is not to say I wasn t enjoying it at the time the romance was beautifully done and Luke is a s [...]


  • well written and thought out but not my cup of tea at all this is 110% romance the suspense and mystery aspects were loosely thrown in at best also the intertwined story lines were so far fetched it was amazing once we got to the end of the book it just seemed to end out of nowhere it was one of those books where you went looking for the next page and just were dumbfounded to see it didn t existere was so much having to do with the brother Quinn and then it just abruptly stopped there seemed to [...]


  • This book was just okay for me Even though I loved Luke and Devon, I just thought there was too much tragedy heaped on to one couple I was a very dark book for me, and maybe that is not my frame of mind right now I am going to keep this book and read it again later.


  • Take a tough girl who was made tough due to a crappy life Take a man who has an enormity of guilt because his life wasn t as bad as his twin brothers.She s a social worker who won t let anyone in He s an ex Ranger and Doctor who is open and nurturing.Throw in some attraction, flaws, an apology and you have their first date That is until Luke manages to get Devon to agree that he can be an asshole meaning he can put his foot in his mouth and sometimes not the most flexible kind of guy but that he [...]


  • This was pretty good I think I like The Missing better but they were so different it doesn t matter I guess Anyway Luke was a dream I loved all the drama All the twists and turns I was suprised at the end Didnt even put it together who the stalker was Wow I thought that Luke was such a sweet heart Super protective and was there for her no matter what Also I enjoyed that when he was pulling away not giving into what he wanted sexually because he was afraid of scaring her She pushed him to give in [...]


  • I m not the target audience for this book With that in mind, my comments should be taken with a grain of salt Or two.The major plot line of the book was OK, even if it did take a while to get going What I really didn t like was the repetitiveness of the sexual encounters The dialogue during sexual encounters was also problematic Rather than repeat the banal repetitive conversations during sex which in this book amounted to saying things like wrap your legs around me it s better to just say somet [...]


  • This is the first book I ve read by this author The storyline and characters captured my attention from the very beginning A story of two tortured souls who find redemption and salvation in each other and their work A very good romance.



  • The CharactersDevon Manning Social Worker, a friend to the kids who are living on the edge The woman who has to be wary of than most people, but a woman with a huge capacity to forgive.Luke Rafferty Son, brother, Army Ranger and Doctor A man searching for the unknown, a man who is just not sure he will know what he is searching for when he meets her.The Other Half of Luke The brother who was always the missing link in Luke s life The brother who was the other half of himself in every sense of t [...]


  • Devon ManningLuke RaffertyOoooh gawd was this dark This was definitely something different altogether from her Wrecked series My heart broke for the heroine Devon s horrific ugly childhood I think Luke s loving patient gentle big heart was just what she needed in her life Plus he s a sexy as hell doctor P The internal struggles and demons this woman goes through is really compelling I can see why some struggled to label this a full romantic suspense book, I would say it s a combination of CR AND [...]


  • Shiloh Walker, who is a new to me author, enters my book realm with the story of ex Ranger Luke Rafferty and social worker Devon Manning This author doesn t hold back and from the first page emotionally sucker punched me with the scene of long lost twin brothers who are reunited at the age of eleven Then I was quickly taken twenty years forward were Luke decided to quit the Rangers, which was another turn point between both brothers to end up another six years later where Luke works in the ER of [...]


  • It s a shame that I can t get into this author All her heroines seem to be physically or sexually abused during their youth and have to then somehow recover from it I love that theme, but I hate Walker s writing.Devon was sexually abused by her aunt s husband She ended up on the foster system, became a drug addict, and eventually pulled herself together and became a social worker Luke s mother abandoned him at birth, but took Quinn, his twin brother, with her He was reunited with Quinn years lat [...]


  • Luke Rafferty Devon ManningI d been hearing some good buzz about this book so I was excited to read it during my vacation I then decided I couldn t wait, so I picked it up this week For the first 60% of the book, I couldn t see what was so special about this read I perceived it as a by the book romantic suspense with too little suspense and when at 60% a major plot point was resolved, I was wondering what the heck then the story took an unexpected turn and Yikes I was delighted The story moved q [...]


  • Shiloh Walker thrilled me with this book It had a different style to most of the romantic suspense that I have read, and it was incredible.Luke Rafferty was an amazing hero I fell for him quick and hard His compassion shone through, but you could still tell he was a strong and capable man.Devon Manning was a character that I could really respect She had survived a terrible tragedy in her youth, that had caused her to fall off the rails for a while, but she managed to pull herself together and be [...]


  • I usually am a sucker for the tortured hero story line Fragile has a tortured heroine story line Devon was sexually abused in her childhood and thus struggles with intimacy Luke is quite the guy Ex Army Ranger, doctor, and pretty much sex on a stick The romance is hot and heavy from pretty much the beginning I expected Devon, with her past, to struggle a bit than she did with Luke The suspense was great and I was glued to my chair wondering what would come next The ending completely floored me. [...]


  • This was really a 4.5 read I loved this story It was edgy and dark The suspense was interwined with the romance I will advise that this is not the typical romance story fact, it s not the typical romantic suspense There was some serious subject matter in this book I was moved by some of the scenes I loved Luke and though I understand the reasons behind Devon s behavior, I wanted to slap her at times I can t wait to read Quinn s story.


  • Sex and suspense Excellent read 4.5 stars Best of all this is a full length book and not a novella as some of Ms Walker s other books have been Luke Rafferty and Devon are super sexy together Hawt love scenes, great relationship, suspenseful story Currently reading the followup Broken about brother Quinn Rafferty and so far its even better than Fragile Highly recommend this book.



  • In my years of reading I haven t stumbled upon an author that could really beat Shiloh Walker in portraying tortured, abused, scarred, screwed up characters She s a master at that And even greater a master in making the reader empathize with those characters without their whining getting annoying I know, the sympathy comes natural, but sometimes, sometimes you get the feeling these people are so used to their private pity party that they don t want to change But please, don t hold this statement [...]
