Review: 5 out of 5 heartfelt stars

Contains possible spoilers from the first book.

I absolutely adored Only for You by Genna Rulon so I was super excited to receive a copy of Pieces For You which is Samantha Whitney and Griffin Everden’s story.

Although enough background information is given, to get a complete understanding of what happened to Sam it is best these books be read in order as this is more or less a continuation and follows on where Only for You left off.

Sam is slowly returning to the life she once lived after being brutalised and more or less left for dead, after spending months at a private facility to heal and recover from her horrific ordeal she has returned home to her best friend Everleigh and Everleigh’s FBI boyfriend Hunter; also lying in wait is Griffin who has had Sam in his sights for quite a while and isn’t too keen on letting her out of it now she is back.

Griffin was amazing! Self-assured, smexy, protective, kind and completely understanding of what Sam has suffered through, I admired him for his patience and his acceptance; he of course wasn’t without his faults but his support and consideration made me gush all over him throughout the book.

Both character were written to perfection, Genna Rulon wrote them in a way that was believable; you could feel all of their emotions – pain, heartache, love and lust. Sam’s strength of character and her courage was amazing! She had literally been through hell and back but didn’t want to remain a victim, times were tough but she made considerable progress throughout the course of the book with the help of smexy Griffin, they both undergo great emotional and personal growth and never stop being true to themselves and to each other. Their romance is so sweet and endearing, they complimented each other beautifully. 

I loved Everleigh and Hunter in the first book and they were just as fabulous support characters, they played a huge role in this book and continued to both develop in their own relationship which is always nice to see in a series but played in pivotal role in Sam’s personal healing, they were awesome best friends. We also get to meet Meg who I also liked; I think she will have an interesting back-story. Therapist Thia had me giggling on many occasions, I loved her sass. Sam’s parents were unbelievably horrible!

The plot was solid, as Sam tried to put her life back together she is again being targeted with threats by a mysterious person and I have to say I had no idea at all who it could have been so this aspect did surprise me.

Genna’s writing is fluid and engaging and I loved the natural witty dialogue and the convincing characters’ interactions; it was a book I found really difficult to put down and the overall message and the subject matter I thought was dealt with extremely well, we also get Griffin’s POV which was a great inclusion.

Overall, Genna Rulon has done it again with a brilliantly wonderful, true-to-life and emotional story that draws you in from the very beginning and doesn’t let go. A marvellous sequel!

Thank-you kindly to Genna Rulon for the opportunity to read and review Pieces For You, it was truly perfect and greatly appreciated.
