As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam's focus couldn't be further from the upcoming battle. He's reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend's life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James's safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It's time for war.
On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam's newly discovered half brother, won't be that easy. The Reestablishment can't tolerate a rebellion, and they'll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.

I wanted to read Fracture Me because I have loved the Shatter Me trilogy, and even though I didn't used to normally read many novellas, when I read Destroy Me, Warner's story, it completely blew me away. It offered a new perspective on him, and while I couldn't help but hate the things he did, I could completely understand where he was coming from.
But I don't really feel like this gave me any of those feels. Sure, I got to see how protective he was over James and a bit of the relationship that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. But. And that is a big but. I don't really feel like I got many other good insights into Adam. Or that it really added much to the series besides another beautiful cover to look at.
I loved Adam from Juliette's point of view and thought that ultimately they should be together, and I am unsure if this was supposed to start to shift my loyalties which honestly, were wavering on reading book 1.5 and 2. But this kinda made me doubt what his feelings were, because he didn't really seem to have much faith in her or think of her as strong or a priority.
I really wanted to love this one, but unfortunately it didn't deliver for me.
My question to you, my lovely readers:
Have you ever switches teams in a book?
