Giveaway, Review & Tour: Pieces of You by Cassia Leo

The story that began in the USA Today bestseller RELENTLESS continues. Which team are you on
In Relentless, college student Claire Nixon and surfer Adam Parker each had a painful past too heavy to carry alone. Claire tried to push Adam away, but Adam's relentless pursuit of her heart and her secrets made her walls come crumbling down.

Though their hearts will never be whole again, Claire and Adam now know they are stronger together than they are apart.
But now Claire's attending college a hundred miles away from Adam. With their relationship already hanging by a thread, Adam is sent to Hawaii on business.
And rock star Chris Knight is back in Claire's life.
Chris wants his ex-girlfriend back and he knows just how to get her: only he has the power to mend the final missing piece of Claire's broken heart. Now Claire must choose between a long-distance relationship with Adam and a second chance at love, family, and home.
New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language, drug use, and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Goodreads Summary
Claire Nixon is only twenty-one, but her heart has been shattered and put back together more times than she can count. Finding solace in meditation and a change of location, she thought she had buried her painful secret for good.

Then she met the persistent and sexy Adam Parker. Adam’s pursuit of Claire’s heart and her secret nearly destroyed them, but their love was relentless.

With no more secrets between them, Claire and Adam thought they had it all figured out. Though they knew they’d never be whole again, their love had survived the test. Until Claire’s rock star ex-boyfriend, Chris Knight, came back.

Now Chris has promised to mend the final piece of Claire’s broken heart as only he can. With Claire attending college a hundred miles away from Adam and Adam’s busy travel schedule, Chris’s offer looks more and more enticing.

My Thoughts
*ARC provided by author for an honest review*

*PLEASE NOTE* if you have not read Relentless, the first book in the series, this review WILL contain spoilers!

When I finished reading the first book in the series, I was feeling pretty confident  about where the story was going and who Claire would end up with when all was said and done. I was Team Adam from the beginning. I don't know if it was simply because we got his and Claire's story in Relentless, or if it was due to the fact that he just seems to be the best fit for her. Maybe it was a combo of both. But I was pretty happy with the ending of that first book and Claire's decision to stick things out with Adam.

But now I am all kinds of confused. 

I can no longer say I am Team Adam. But I am not really Team Chris either. I am kinda on Team Undecided at the moment. Decisions made by all parties (including Claire) in this book, left me feeling that maybe neither guy is the one for her. I just feel like she has placed too much of the outcome of her life on both of them. And yet, I can see where each guy is good for her in their own way too. See why I am all confused?!

I wonder if Chris is the one she will end up with for the simple fact they have huge history together? And can her and Adam really have a future after only a 2 month relationship that doesn't seem to be able to handle the stresses of real life? These are the types of things you will be asking yourself as you are reading. Which I did, in one night because I couldn't stop until I knew what was going to happen. Big mistake! Now I am left impatiently waiting for the next book

Unfortunately, the end if this one resolves nothing. If anything, you are left with more questions than answers. But I guess that is to be expected since there is another book coming. While it does suck, I still love this series and would highly recommend adding it on your TBR!!

USA Today bestselling author Cassia Leo loves her coffee, chocolate, and margaritas with salt. When she's not writing, she spends way too much time watching old reruns of Friends and Sex and the City. When she's not watching reruns, she's usually enjoying the California sunshine or reading--sometimes both.
