Pieces For You
By Genna Rulon
"The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies,
and still defying fortune's spite; revive from ashes and rise.” -Miguel de Cervantes
Samantha Whitney survived unimaginable tragedy only to discover she had been betrayed by a man who claimed to love her. Shattered, Sam spends months at a safe haven trying to piece herself back together. Ready or not, the time has come for her to return home.
As Sam struggles to resume a life that no longer feels familiar, she finds unwavering support in an unexpected, familiar face. Confronting Sam’s raw emotions and open wounds head-on, Griffin manages to take two steps forward for every step she retreats.
But when Sam is once again threatened, Griffin must decide how far he is willing to go to protect the woman he wants…knowing the cost of her safety is the risk of losing her.
Pieces For You is a captivating journey of survival, healing, and sacrifice—teeming with honesty, humor, unexpected twists, and love’s unsurpassed endurance.
*Though Pieces For You is a part of the For You Series, the book can be read as a stand alone.
~ MY REVIEW~
There are books out there that tear you up inside. They claw at your skin forcing you to feel just a little bit of the unimaginable horrors the character goes through. This is one of those books.
"Can someone recover from meeting the devil in person, being violated and beaten by him, and then left for dead?"
Thankfully, it has as much comic relief in it as sadness. You will be crying one minute and laughing your head off the next.
Genna Rulon has created an amazing set of characters who take care of each other and love each other with great passion.
Sam and Everleigh are what best friends are supposed to be. Sam has suffered so much with nightmares and trying to get her life back together after she was attacked. Everleigh takes care of her every step of the way. I loved how strong Sam was. She wasn't going to let her attacker win. She was going to survive and come out strong.
Each day becomes a little easier for Sam. Her therapist, who is awesome by the way, gives her homework. Things she can do to acclimate herself back into society and feel safe. While Sam still understandably has a few setbacks, she does very well moving forward.
"You are one of the few with the bravery to walk through the fire, let it burn you to ash, and rise again, changed but all the more beautiful for it."
Sam is worried that she will never get her libido back and after having a very healthy appetite before the attack she is saddened for the loss of it now. That is until Griffin comes back into her life.
Oh be still my heart! Griffin is a sexy bar owner who has admired Sam for a while but never acted on his feelings. Now that he has a second chance, he isn't going to let anything stand in his way. I loved Griffin. He was so kind, and thoughtful, and patient. He was exactly the kind of guy Sam needed. The connection between them is hot! And, the constant eye fondling made me giggle. Move aside ladies, I think there is a new book boyfriend in the house. Haha.
Seriously though, I loved this book. You know a book is going to be good when you can't put it down from the first page. Genna Rulon knows how to write a fantastic story and this one has it all; Drama, Humor, Heat, and Healing. I can't wait to read more from her.
