Three years ago she was left in pieces . . . Most college freshmen love the newfound freedom of living on campus, but none of them craves it like Beth Caplan. One ill-fated night when she was fifteen left her locked in a posh prison of private tutors. It’s for the best, everyone said, and maybe it was. But after years of hard work and healing, the one person who never thought of her as broken could be the one to break her all over again. And Beth can’t seem to stay away now any more than she could all those years ago. As soon as David March learned his best friend’s little sister was enrolling at his school, he promised to look after her, and promised himself he’d keep a safe distance. But the sweet little girl he’d grown up with has transformed into a gorgeous young woman, and she’s attracting attention from people she shouldn’t-like the ex who nearly destroyed her and a strange new student with a disturbing habit of showing up wherever Beth goes. But for David, the most troubling discovery is realizing that he doesn’t just want Beth to be safe. He wants her to be his.
In Pieces is a friend to lovers college romance that has some incredibly emotional and intense moments. Both Bethy and David tell this love story which helps you to connect.
As a reader, you can easily follow their inner thoughts and feelings.
Firstly, I loved David, the poor guy has loved Bea since childhood. The constant battle he wages with himself will have you pulling your hair out about his unconditional love. At times I really wanted this story to move quickly as I became frustrated as I wanted Bea to realize David’s love.
The beginning has Bea and her sadness with her young story. Even as we near the end of In Pieces we are still finding out her secrets. I am openly advising I hated her brother and his meddling ways in her life. I became frustrated with her family and to see her stand up for herself was brilliant. Bea is a strong character and it was wonderful watching her grow.
Supporting characters provide humour and friendship along with some interesting secrets. An interesting character was Brody, however, I admit I had sneaking suspicions and was pleasantly surprised and happy.
The romantic and sexual moments for David and Bea are beautiful in more ways than one.
Bea & David are friends first and become lovers and we do get a beautiful ending and I am left fully satisfied.
