I didn’t want this life.
But sometimes you’re forced to make the best of the crappy hand you’ve been dealt. I wanted to teach my daughter that. No matter what happens you face your problems head-on.
Never cower. Never give up.
Then someone took her and I had to put my faith in a system that had failed me, and my hope in a man I didn’t know.
Serve. Honor. Protect, are the only things I’ve ever cared about until her case was dropped on my desk. As we searched for her missing daughter, the last woman I thought I’d fall in love with became my reason for living.
Then the world came crashing down around us.
One secret would change everything, but I had one more hand to be dealt. And if I played my cards right, maybe, just maybe we’d get our piece of heaven.

WOW! This book was the PERFECT romantic suspense for me! We met Mick and Marissa in Hell and Back, but I had no idea what was in store for these characters. I was addicted right from the prologue and could NOT put this book down. Mick had a sad childhood, largely contributing to the (almost) solitary life he chooses to live now. The way he puts up with his ex’s treatment of him is something you don’t really see with romantic heroes, but he was no less alpha at the same time. It was a fascinating dynamic. Marissa is a fantastic heroine. She’s strong and fierce, but passionate and vulnerable at the same time. As a single mother with a missing teenage daughter, you’d think SHE would be the needy one, but as the story unfolds, you see that Mick is the one who needs HER. She’s the balm to his hurtful and tragic past. This story is fast-paced and gripping, with unexpected twists and turns guaranteed to have your jaw dropping. At one point, I was compelled to send a message to the author that simply said, “MIND. BLOWN.” This is THE book to bring you out of a book funk, and it still amazes me that this is only the author’s third book! Well done Ms. Madison! I want more books on the other characters!
I could not wait to read Pieces of Heaven and let me say Natasha did not disappoint. This is a great read that I highly recommend. We get a glimpse of Marissa and Mick in Hell and Back, Book #1 in the Heaven & Hell series. While you do NOT need to read the first book, I would still recommend reading it simply because that too is a great story. Mick is all alpha male and someone you definitely want to get to know. He's tough, brooding and has a heart of gold although he comes off gruff and rude at times. Marrisa's character is so strong and that is what I love most about her. She's not ashamed of her life and is doing all she can to raise her daughter to succeed in life. Mick feels a connection to Marissa and wants to take care of her while they're looking for her missing daughter. As they work together to find Lori, it becomes clear the two have a connection. The chemistry and passion between Marissa and Mick becomes very, very hot, so be prepared to be fanning yourself when these two are together. It's clear the road to HEA is going to be bumpy for these two and you are fighting for them every step of the way. Just when you think you have all the answers and know where the story is heading, Natasha throws in twists and turns you are completely blind-sided by. It is impossible to put this down because you are there with the characters as they fight to regain happiness. I'm in for the long haul with this author and her fantastic storytelling. Add this to your TBR! #Mick
I can't believe this is only the third book from Natasha Madison - she is fast becoming a go to author for me as Pieces of Heaven was yet another great read. This is the second book in the Heaven 7 Hell series and while this can be read as a stand alone, I would recommend reading book 1 (Hell and Back) first. This is Mick's book and he's a delicious male lead. I'm not going to lie, in the beginning, I wantded to jump into the pages and shake some sense into him but boy he makes up for it in the end. He's matched perfectly by Marissa. She's utterly selfless, strong and a friend that you want in your own life. There'sno denying the electric chemistry these two have and they really burn up the pages. Pieces Of Heaven is a fire cracker of a read. It's action packed, fast paced and had me on the edge of my seat througout with the twists and turns. This is a book and series, I would most happily recommend. I was provided with a copy of this book from the Publisher; there was no inducement or obligation.
