The second New Adult novel in the Something More series by bestselling author Danielle Pearl!
Beth Caplan is ready to begin college a new woman. She's worked hard to overcome her demons, and she's eager to live in a world where no one knows about her past. Except, of course, her childhood crush. David March has known Beth a lifetime. Tasked by her older brother to look after the beautiful incoming freshman, he takes his job exceptionally seriously. Even if she tempts him in ways no kid-sister type ever should.
When Beth's ex shows up as a transfer student, and a creepy stranger with a reputation for violence sets his sights on her, Dave will do whatever it takes to protect her, even if it means moving her in with him. When he learns just how much a secret from his past hurt the girl he's always cared for, he becomes doubly determined to protect her, even from himself. But that's easier said than done.
Beth is more than ready to head to college and be on her own after living the past few years being treated like she was going to break. She’s mad when her brother’s best friend, David, acts like he is her bodyguard on campus. What she doesn’t know is that David couldn’t stay away from her if he wanted to. He makes her feel safe yet she still feels like she’s being held back from experiencing life. With the ex that almost destroyed her walking back into her life along with a potential stalker, Beth is determined to prove that she can handle things herself.
This story will give you all the feels. I have a serious book hangover and I’m not sure that I will get over it anytime soon. In Pieces is an emotional ride with a touch of suspense thrown in that will leave you wanting more. This was my first read by Danielle Pearl and her writing is phenomenal. I can’t wait to read more.
