The Pieces of You and Me
They say time can heal all wounds…
When Jess and Rupert parted ways, it was the end of a great love story that might have been. Now ten years later, the very different paths they have taken in life will bring them back together for a chance meeting.
But with so much left unsaid about the break up neither ever recovered from and with each keeping their own devastating secrets, will they finally be able to make the fractured pieces of their love for one another whole again?
A sweet second chance romance that put a smile on my face and a warm feeling in my heart!
I do love a good second chance romance, however nine times out of 10 I get frustrated at the lack of communication that went on in the first relationship that ultimately lead to the need for a second chance romance. This was definitely one of those books, don’t get me wrong I thoroughly enjoyed it I just felt the desire to reach through the pages and shake some people a couple times. Do you ever find yourself talking to your book? Thinking perhaps the characters will explain to you why they are acting the way they are? No? It is just me?
Jessie and Rupert have been the best of friends since birth. Their friendship turned into romance when they were teenagers, but then abruptly ended when Rupert went off to college in the US. 10 years later Rupert and Jesse have a chance encounter, sparks are rekindled, but can they ever find the flame again? Time has changed many things and they are not the same two lovestruck teenagers they were a decade ago. Is true love a choice or is it fated?
Jesse and Rupert were both very well drawn multidimensional characters who I really liked. Although the back and forth between them was tedious at times, they both really needed a good friend to talk some major sense into them! Their friends all seem to think they were perfect for one another, however nobody told them just to stop with the nonsense and get on with it! Rachel Burton is a beautiful writer, the emotion and angst in this book just poured off the pages. The story is told from both Jesse and Rupert‘s point of view, along with Jessie‘s old diary entries. I thought this was tremendously impactful we really got to see the entire picture. Jessie suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome and I felt as though that was well explained and well researched, it is a disease I don’t entirely understand, but now I do have a better picture.
Beautifully told and packed with wonderful characters, second chances, angst, and love! Recommend!
