Three years ago she was left in pieces . . .
Most college freshmen love the newfound freedom of living on campus, but none of them craves it like Beth Caplan. One ill-fated night when she was fifteen left her locked in a posh prison of private tutors. It’s for the best, everyone said, and maybe it was. But after years of hard work and healing, the one person who never thought of her as broken could be the one to break her all over again. And Beth can’t seem to stay away now any more than she could all those years ago.
As soon as David March learned his best friend’s little sister was enrolling at his school, he promised to look after her, and promised himself he’d keep a safe distance. But the sweet little girl he’d grown up with has transformed into a gorgeous young woman, and she’s attracting attention from people she shouldn’t-like the ex who nearly destroyed her and a strange new student with a disturbing habit of showing up wherever Beth goes. But for David, the most troubling discovery is realizing that he doesn’t just want Beth to be safe. He wants her to be his.
In Pieces by Danielle Pearl
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
➳When it comes down to childhood crushes, and hearts being broken, used and ready to fixed, this love story is the one that you can definitely say it is a MUST to read…
➳This book is part of a series that I have not gotten the chance to start reading, but because I read this one first my plans have changed as I plan on reading the previous and the future books in the series. The novel first starts with intuitions of a broken heart from the main female character, Beth. We get a better insight as to what happened and what she did. The choices she makes are the ones that have led her to the place that we get to read and be introduced to the main male character, David. A character that has stolen my heart in so many ways due to his present and his past, one that incorporates Beth and her emotional issues that she slowly learns to conquer throughout the story.
➳I want to make this a quick review but I want to make sure my followers know that this story has so much more meaning than a girl with a broken heart who is looking for someone to help her fix it. This story has the background meanings of suicide attempts, and compassionate love that conquers the soul of individuals that are just meant to be with each other. Many don’t believe in love being conquered by destiny. However, this story proves you wrong as it has meanings of many that draw you to the page and to the story plot Danielle Peal has written;
“With David, the danger has only ever been to my heart and innocence, and I can’t remember a time when I wouldn’t have willingly given him both…”
➳Both characters, Beth and David are in the obstacles of being in forbidden territories. To me, I find Beth and David superior characters that are one of a kind. Individuals that need each other more than just the physical means to battle the stages that life has at stake. The fact that David is possessive of Beth is just another factor that makes me swoon over him and his english major, tattoo, soccer loving mind. He is a means to an end of my resolving issue of going against broody, tattooed male characters. David has broken that barrier for sure and I am hoping that Danielle Pearl writes more characters such as him and Beth.
