Pieces Of Me by Jacquie Underdown

A story about starting fresh, letting go, and risking it all for love…

For Hannah, Mercy Island is a refuge, a new beginning, and a place to find safety in her own skin. Here, in this peaceful, beachside place, she will rediscover all those pieces of herself her abusive ex stole away.  For Bear, Mercy Island is a prison, a backwater, a place he can't wait to escape. Away, in the city, he'll chase his dreams and lose the bad memories haunting him.

When Hannah's home is damaged in an ugly storm, Bear offers his handyman services to repair it–a last job and a pretty girl to pass the time before he heads out. But Hannah is terrified to lose herself in another relationship, and Bear isn't in it for the long haul.

However, their simmering sexual attraction refuses to be ignored, and just because love isn't on the line doesn't mean sex isn't on the table. A no–strings–attached brief fling to curb the tension and take the edge off. No ties. No emotions. No pain.

But love has a way of coming in the windows, even when you've slammed the door, if only Hannah and Bear can stop looking to the past and find hope in their future.

About the Author

Jacquie resides in sunny Brisbane with her husband and two sons. Numbers and practicality are a way of life for Jacquie as she works as an accountant by day. So it's no wonder, for sanity's sake, she balances this banality with words, characters and imagination in all other possible moments. Jacquie is an author of a number of novels and writes contemporary women's fiction that is emotionally driven and possesses unique themes beyond the constraints of the physical universe. She strives to offer romance, but with complexity; spirituality, without the religion. Her novels express a purpose and offer subtle messages about life, the spirit and, of course, love.

Hannah’s grandmother passed away and Hannah has moved to her island home to start over. Then there was a big storm and bear offered to help Hannah fix the damage that was done by the storm.Then Bear and Hannah begin a friendship with a little flirting shot in. But Bear looks at Mercy Island as a prison and all he wants to do is escape it. Alistair was Hannah’s ex and that is why she wants a new beginning as he had been abusive as well as controlling. Bear had a very difficult upbringing . Bear tried to be there for Hannah at her hardest times. He knew what she was going through. Then the friendship grew to love but Hannah wanted to stay on the island and Bear wanted to go….. This was a very good story although at times i felt the plot was just all over the place. Hannah is a very strong woman to leave Alistair go and leave him for the island but she did it and was happier for it. Bear was also a strong man to overcome his past and look to a happy future. So story is good, characters are great especially Bear and Hannah and all the ins and outs they go through. I recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

*ARC received from Escape Publishing via NetGalley in return for an honest review* Pieces of Me is the heartwarming story of Hannah and Bear, two people who are trying to overcome their painful pasts. The warm and caring relationship between them grows at a steady pace throughout the story and eventually they are faced with decisions regarding their present and future. I love how supportive and encouraging Bear is, and how Hannah blossoms as she rediscovers her true self. This is a well-written, sexy romance with very likable characters.

  Pieces Of Me,  Jacquie Underdown Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre:  Romance,  I liked the sound of this and is was a sweet novel, a good story but nothing that lifted it into a great one for me. I liked Hannah, and admired her taking charge of herself after what had happened to her. that must have taken a lot of courage, and its something that happens to many, many people :-( Bear was a great character too and I liked him. He’d been stuck in Mercy Island looking after his sister, and now finally was going to be able to move, to get away, to live his dreams.  I just didn’t feel the tension, the drama, the sizzle between Bear and Hannah I wanted though.  There were moments of course, but they felt very gentle, very subdued and seemed to be over soon. Then Bear, wanting to leave but faced with losing Hannah if he does of course. Its the stuff of romance, the choice, the do I or don’t I conundrum...and yet it didn’t feel like a big decision, I didn’t feel his confusion, or that Hannah would be devastated if he did go. Its a decent, well written read, but for me I need angst, drama, tensions, and those were here but on a very muted level. There are readers who want exactly that though, so it’ll be a five star book for them, just not one for me.   Stars: Three, a good read but without the feelings of potential loss and dramatics I needed.   ARC supplied by Netgalley and publishers If you enjoyed my review I'd love it if you would please click “Like” and if you didn't I'd love to know why, so I can make future reviews more helpful.
