ETHAN’S HIT A ROUGH SPOT
So I caught my dad in bed with my ex-girlfriend.
My best friend cancelled our plans to celebrate my birthday.
Decided to drink away the betrayal.
Made out with a cardboard cutout of a celebrity in front of my new roommates.
Got in a bar fight.
Hooked up with that pretty bartender whose sad smile I’ve secretly been painting pictures of since forever, but she shoved me out the door with hardly a word.
Did I mention the tattoo I don’t exactly remember getting?
And that’s only Saturday.
Now I need to pick up the pieces of my messed-up life.
LEEANNE’S HAD A TOUGH LIFE
What do you do when you’ve lived in the same small town your whole life and you feel as if you’ll always be stuck in the same rut, like a piece of busted wagon wheel? Well, maybe you start by hooking up with the first decent guy who walks into your bar.
Maybe once you do, it’s hard to get him out of your head even though you try. And maybe, just maybe, you find out he makes you laugh even more than he makes you want to shout his name.
If you’re me, you don’t even know what to do with a guy like him. A little piece of happiness…that feels downright dangerous.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Elisabeth Staab is one of my favorite authors because her writing really puts you right into the characters' minds and emotions. They practically come to life right off the pages. I especially loved spending time in Ethan's head. Okay, I'm going to be honest. I absolutely fell in love with him right from the beginning, and loved him even more as I watched him with LeeAnne. His endless supply of jokes is very endearing as well. I was rooting for LeeAnne too. Her life has been tough, and she is in a very different place than Ethan, but they fit together so well. There is a beautiful part in the book that compares them to puzzle pieces that I thought was just perfect. There's a lot of those little moments that make an impact in Piece by Piece. It's another reason for why I love Staab's books. I always find myself doing a lot of highlighting and thinking. Her conversational, entertaining, and very emotional writing style makes it impossible for me to put her books down, and they make a lasting impression. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
