    "I want it to be real. I want it to be you."

    Shatterproof is hands down one of the best books I've read this year and one of the best M/M I've ever read; open the stunning cover and you discover an unforgettable, evocative and intimate story centralising around two men who will steal your heart for so many reasons. "Love only cures everything in fairy tales." I was gripped from start to finish. Amongst the harsher realities of this story, because it holds some angst, is an emotional, tender story featuring two men from very different worlds, tormented by their lives but who find love and understanding with one another. An immortal, the present day sees Saint as an EMT, and he's walked earth for centuries, watching the the men he loves waste away because he does just that--loves them. Grey, an artist and very much human, has hit his breaking point; he no longer wants his life to go on and when Saint saves him, he's drawn to him--the man who actually has the capability to answer his wishes. "...all I could think of was the feeling of your hands on my chest. White birds, fluttering against me." This story is the definition of why I love reading. We have two men who were so endearing as individuals, who are fighting their own battles, but together they create a beautiful, deep bond filled with love, fight, fear and intimacy which often takes your breath away. And it makes you feel; from those brief moments when your heart misses a beat, to subtle humour bringing smiles and laughs exactly when they're most needed and raw emotion that causes that sting in your throat from being so invested in both characters and feeling their pain, that you're fighting against letting the tears fall because you. Do. Not. Cry. Yeah, I failed bloody miserably on that one. "You're water, and I can’t hold on to you no matter how hard I try." I loved Saint and Grey, I loved their story and how the paranormal aspect is pivotal, yet just just below the surface leaving the focus on the characters. It's absolutely one you don't want to miss. Xen Sanders isn't an author new to me. I've read his contemporary and erotic romances written as Cole McCade and there's no mistaking Shatterproof as his; he has a true gift for visual writing with strong, engaging, character-driven storylines that make you feel, and have a focus on marginalised people. And that's why he's firmly situated on my pile of must-read authors.
