Pieces of You (Shattered Hearts 2) by Cassia Leo

Reviewed by Donna 4.5 Stars

OMG, I so enjoyed the continuation of the story that is Claire, Adam and Chris. You must have read Relentless first  as this is the 2nd book in the series, there will also be a 3rd book, which I am now dying for!

Well, hmmmm what can I say…I am in a bit of a quandary with this…trouble is I like both Adam and Chris…they each have their redeeming qualities and their not so redeeming qualities…both love Claire…and Claire loves them both too, but for totally different reasons. This is not a love triangle per se as Claire does not cheat on one or the other…however, she is in a relationship with Adam but Chris is on the periphery using everything he can in his ammo to try and win her back…a first love is always a dangerous love, especially when they have a child together.

Claire has gone back to college and is still in her relationship with Adam..once again they are totally intense and madly in love with each other…however, they now have the extra strain of Adam’s job as they are 100’s of miles apart and don’t see each other as much as they would like. Adam agrees to take a job in Hawaii as a last job for his father, which would also mean the release of him from his services so that he and Allie can be together. 3 months is a long time to be apart and can their relationship stand this test also bearing in mind that Chris is there trying to worm his way back into Claire’s affections??

Whilst Adam is away, Claire has to deal with Chris and the open adoption. She keeps him at arms length as much as possible but he tries all the tricks to break her down. He was her first love so they will always have that connection however, there is something at the back of mind that thinks that he is hiding something. He seems to have changed, but why would Claire not have told him in the first place about something so important, there must have been a reason (other than his career) that she felt that she couldn’t and she went through it alone. Therefore, I feel that she has an even better connection to Adam…Adam is more her soul mate, he found her when she was down and brought her back up again, made her feel, made her love and live again…therefore TEAMMMMMM ADAMMMM!!!

…..and then Adam does something so utterly stupid that I had to take a breather….I screamed at him, I shouted and I tossed the kindle and turned it off!!! I was that peed off!!! Whilst he thinks he is doing what is best for her, he isn’t (the dumb idiot) and all he does unwittingly is pushes her towards Chris argggghhhhhhh!!!!!

Cassia Leo’s writing is heart wrenchingly beautiful…very emotional and very talented…you cannot help but fall in love with the characters even if you are not routing for them..

I cannot wait for the next book…I so want Adam and Claire to get their HEA but it is all up in the air…who gets the girl???

As for the title of this book, I will leave you with this quote…

“You’re mine, and a piece of you will always belong to me the same way a piece of me will always belong to you” and sigh!!
