On the whole this looks to be a typical romance about girl that ran away from home at 18 who ends up having to come back after her dream of making it in the world of broadcast journalism goes up in flames. But that would be where your wrong…….
This is a story about love for sure but not the typical type we are used to. Shyann’s soul fractured when her mother died. She couldn’t deal with her grief and took that out on her father who was also grieving and left home with a lot of hurtful words being cast from both sides. She hardened her heart and went to college with the end goal of being a TV news reporter. She blows it badly when on her first assignment she lets her personal feelings get in the way on a live broadcast that ends up going viral and getting her fired. With no choice she has to tuck her tail between her legs and go home until she can financially get back on her feet again.
Its here that she meets a man who works for her father’s construction business that changes not only her life but also her view on life. This man is very shy and hardly communicates. She doesn’t understand at first her fascination with him but she works hard at becoming his friend. She has no idea about all the secrets he hides from the world but knows this man has also been fractured in a way from something horrific in his past.
I think readers know from the title of this book that the hero has a split personality. I’m not going to go into great detail about that but I loved how the author chose to write his story and shows us how that effects the person that suffers from that condition and also how it also effects the person that falls in love with someone with that disorder.
There are defiantly dark themes running through out this book but its not a dark book per se. Its a beautiful love story that shows love has no bounds. I love when an author gets creative and gives us something new and Spilt is so heartfelt and touching it leaves a lasting impression long after you’ve finished it.
