Synopsis: Kiernan Parks settled all the scores. He finished what he set out to do and then . . . he left.
He left Jade. Heartbroken and weary. Existing one day to the next. One breath after another. The only way she knew how to move forward, forever missing a piece of her heart. Until an unexpected surprise throws her volatile life into upheaval, once more.
He left Caulder. Guilt-ridden and grieving. Fighting to hold it all together. Not just for himself, but for the people he cares about. Staggering under the weight of his obligations.
He left them alone.
He left them together.
I was really excited to read this book after I read the first book, and then especially after I read the novella that is the first book told from one of the main guys point of views! I wasn't 100% sure how the author was going to do this book after the events of the first book, but I did have a few ideas! I can say that some of my ideas happened in this book lol! Quite a few things happened that I wasn't expecting though! The plot was amazing! It was really emotional, and I do have to admit that I cried right at the beginning and then a few times more as the plot developed! The plot showed the characters after the emotional events of the first book and how they were coping with their loss! The author did a brilliant job of continuing the plot! I couldn't put this book down when I started it and I finished it in a few sittings as well! The plot was beautiful, emotional and had a strong message! The ending was also bigger than I thought it was going to be, which I loved! The characters were again amazing! Jade was again the main female character and my heart again went out to her in this book! Things were starting to look up for her with her family at the end of the last book, but in this book everything just got ten times worse for her! She went back to doubting everything about herself and feeling like she didn't belong! It was again up to her love interest to show her that she was worth everything! Jade was still such a strong character though! She had been through a lot, but she still picked herself up and kept going! She went through even more in this book, and I could see how it was becoming too much for her! She still picked herself up and continued on, which was admirable! Caulder was the main guy character in this book, which makes a change from the first book! I also loved getting to go inside Caulder's head in the novella in this series! I loved Caulder more in this book than what I did the first book! He was such a strong character and he held it all together when Jade was the one who was falling apart, and vice versa! He was also hot and I loved that he was always there for Jade! It told me a lot about the kind of guy he was! I could also see that he had strong feelings for Jade, and that he would do anything for her and keep her safe! I just loved him! I was kinda expecting this book to be written from both Jade and Caulder's point of views, but I wasn't sure if it was going to be, so I was really happy when a few chapters were written from Caulder's point of view! It really helped me connect more with the two characters! I'm not sure if there's going to be another book in the series! After the ending of this book, I think there could be a novella or something to finish up Jade and Caulder's story more! I've loved this series though and I'm sad that it's over if this is the last book! I can't wait to read more books from this author though! The cover for this book suits it perfectly! It really sums up all the emotion in the plot! I also love how well it suits the cover for the first book and the novella! Big thank you to Jamie for an ARC of Pieces of my Heart and for having me on her Blog Tour!
