“I loved you then,
I love you now,
and I’ve loved you every single day in between.”

Jameson Taylor is a nomad. A drifter. A memory collector.
Or, at least, that’s what’s become of her life ever since she was forced to leave pieces of her fractured heart behind.

“This is the fault in our fate, our one undoing:
All he’s ever wanted is my happiness,
even when it costs him his own.”

Holden Eastwood is resentful. Angry. But most of all, hurt.
Torn to pieces by the girl who left him, he struggles to find forgiveness in the organ she once broke.

When a tragedy forces them to face the aftermath, Jamie seeks acceptance, while Holden searches for answers.
What they find, instead, are remnants of their love.
Fragments of forever.
And parts of a puzzle that will lead them to the truth…
A truth that might shatter them to pieces.

I have terrible bookzheimers, and when Pieces of  Me turned up on my Kindle, I had a terrible time remembering what had happened in the first part - all I remembered was that I was all WTF with what happened in the last bit of book one, but I knew I was wanting to read part two stat.

Pieces Of Me has all the usual JMac angst and emotion, but for me, for at least the first half of the book, Britney Spears' "Toxic" was playing in my head.  As much as I loved Jamie and Holden individually, together they were bad news, and all they did was hurt - themselves and each other.

However the second half of things, when they did actually, shock horror - communicate - I did like them both a lot better.

Seriously guys, talk to each other lol

I felt that - eventually - our lovelies had a lot of personal growth, and when they removed heads from sphincters, they were wonderful together

Don't get me wrong, I really did like the story, but for so long I was wondering why they were even bothering? What's the point when all you do is want to hate each other?

But some wonderful side characters *cough cough Maggie cough cough* who took the level of animosity down every time they were one the page.

I loved getting more of Mia, Leo and little heartbreaker Benny.

I am glad Jamie and Holden got the ending they deserved, even it if took them a little while to get there.
