    2. At 14%, I was a mess A hot freaking mess.Luckily they were tears of happiness and joy because Sidney had finally been given the love that she had always dreamed of and the family that she had always wanted Jake s love saved her and his parents acceptance completed her and gave her the confidence to pursue her goals.By 19%, I was a fcking wreck.My heart was fcking shattered, into pieces much like the theme of this story It s not like I didn t know that this was going to happen Doesn t mean I was [...]

    4. 4 Solid StarsWow, her writing is so fantastic when I was reading Devil You Know I added this one and now I m searching for her other works to add to my tbr I confess that I m a junkie and her books are my cure Haha When I was reading this story at some point I could hear my heartbeat and I could feel my blood boiling And at some point I just laughed out loud How is that possible some one could write so beautifully Sidney is an orphan girl who her parents abandoned her on the steps of a hospital [...]

    6. Sometimes we find a love that we ve wished for, a love that is beautiful and pure that heals our hurts and fills the emptiness Sometimes love is unwanted, raw and untamed Demanding all from us, but giving back even Not the love we thought we wanted, but the love we need the love we find we re unable to live without This is the story of Sidney Ellis She was left on the steps of a hospital when she was a baby and when she was 10, she got adopted by some uncaring foster parents There, she had a fo [...]


    7. Rating 4 StarsReview Overall Collecting the Pieces was a nice read with emotions, ugly cry, a strong heroine, a sexy hero and a little suspense CharactersWe get the story of Sidney from her childhood till adulthood and how she loses the people she loves till she finally finds Abel.Abel is this sexy man who entertained me throughout this book, through his humor and the banter between the main characters.What did not work My only complaint with the book is that there were too many characters be it [...]

    9. 4.5 Stars I found this book to be a surprise When I thought the story was going to go one way, it took a complete left turn In a sense, I almost felt like I was reading a few different stories all mixed into one, and that s not a bad thing in this case, at all This is to say that, I felt so many different emotions for each character, that I was on a different ride with each of them L.A Fiore succeeded in making me feel for characters that shouldn t deserve the time of the day, and of course, dro [...]


    10. WOW This book I don t even know how or where to start I have A LOT to say, so please don t run away screaming while reading one of my rants You should really read this book no matter what I might say in my review First of all, what we have here are basically two or even books There s so much story here.The first part takes up 20 to 25% of the book and I basically cried all through it Let s start at the beginning I ll try my best to not spoil too much Even if it might seem spoily it s really not [...]


    11. All the pieces make a life I m a big fan of this author Her book Beautifully Damaged was a rare find when I stumbled across it years ago It touched me deeply and kept her on my radar, waiting for It took a while, but my stalking paid off and when she wrote another book in the series it was just as good After reading a few , I m convinced, she s extremely talented and deserves her place on my auto click list of authors This one, Collecting the Pieces, touched me than all the others It ripped my [...]


    12. I really do not know where to start when reviewing this book I don t think my writing skills have what it takes to get across my feelings towards this book and give you, a fellow reader just how good this book was and five stars is just not enough praise for this book.L.A Fiore has really put her heart and soul into this book, from her wonderful words, to the inspiration for the cover and the work of art that is the inside of the book, nothing has been left out to give the best reading experienc [...]


    13. 3.5 3.75 stars the then part of the book was a real lacklustre It just felt too robotic without much emotions I loved Jake , don t get me wrong , but their love was just too fast and too quick I loved that Sidney finally had someone to call her own but it mostly felt like a blur But the now part had soooo much KA feels to it I thoroughly enjoyed Abel stole my heart So rough around the edges but a total softie on the inside yum


    14. I read this book because the dude on the cover is basically my dream guy Do you know this person Give him my number This book was weird, and I m not 100% it deserves the 3 stars I gave it It may just be getting the bump up because, bearded motorcycle head with man bun Sigh This one starts with a 10 year old girl, being placed in her first foster home, and basically discovering that she is nothing than a paycheque to her foster parents and that humans are generally the worst Until she meets her [...]


    15. I lost interest at 20%I might come back to it, I might notI don t think I click with this author tbh, as I struggled with the other 2 books I read from her I think I m simply not a fan of her writing style, but it seems like others have no issues and love her works It just isn t working for me, sorry


    16. Even through heartbreak, love can help you collect all the pieces.This book hit every emotion When I was asked if I d read this book for an honest review, I of course said, yes However, I didn t read the blurb and had no idea what I was in for Well, I was in for a roller coaster ride of emotions L.A Fiore wrote a story full of love, friendship, heartbreak, and healing Sidney Ellis didn t have a wonderful childhood It wasn t filled with happy birthdays and joyous Christmas mornings She didn t hav [...]


    17. When you read the blurb on this one it doesn t really give very much away except how Sidney fell in love at 15 to Jake Stephens Pure and loving Jake.what you don t realize that Sidney falls in love again but not as a girl as a woman This is an amazing love story showing you that second chances at falling in love actually happen.The book is told in told in two parts Sidney s life as foster child, meeting her brother Conner and then meeting and falling in love with the lovely Jake and becoming par [...]

    19. There are many really good authors I like that write really great books but there are only a few that write real magic Those authors usually have their very own special thing their tiny magic that they weave into their stories And the stories they create will draw you in and if you are lucky it will take you a long time to recover Let me use one of my favorite Authors here as an example again Colleen Hoover s magic is that she will always place a twist you never saw coming in her story You will [...]
