“The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies, and still defying fortune’s spite; revive from ashes and rise.” -Miguel de Cervantes

Samantha Whitney survived unimaginable tragedy only to discover she had been betrayed by a man who claimed to love her. Shattered, Sam spends months at a safe haven trying to piece herself back together. Ready or not, the time has come for her to return home.

As Sam struggles to resume a life that no longer feels familiar, she finds unwavering support in an unexpected, familiar face. Confronting Sam’s raw emotions and open wounds head-on, Griffin manages to take two steps forward for every step she retreats.

But when Sam is once again threatened, Griffin must decide how far he is willing to go to protect the woman he wants…knowing the cost of her safety is the risk of losing her.

Pieces For You is a captivating journey of survival, healing, and sacrifice—teeming with honesty, humor, unexpected twists, and love’s unsurpassed endurance.

*Though Pieces For You is a part of the For You Series, the book can be read as a stand alone.

review

I really enjoyed Genna Rulon’s Only for You, and I was SO excited for Pieces for You, which is Samantha’s book, and it didn’t disappoint! The story was exceptionally well done, and I was really impressed with how the author chose to portray Sam after what horrifyingly happened to her at the end of the previous book. Pieces for You is similar to Only for You, with the heart-warming romance and the totally hot and sweet alpha male main character, but I liked book 2 even more because of how touching and emotional it is.

“You’ve been dealt one of the shittiest hands imaginable; most will never be challenged with a fraction of what you have. You are one of the few with the bravery to walk through the fire, let it burn you to ash, and rise again, changed but all the more beautiful for it.”

At the beginning of the book, Samantha is recovering from her brutal attack and rape. She’s a tough girl, but that attack broke her, and she has a hard time coming to terms with what happened. Reading her POV, going through her thoughts was heart-wrenching to read. However, slowly, but surely, Sam heals. It’s a long process, but one she’s able to get through and make it to the other side. I loved how even though Sam is broken, she’s also fierce and stubborn and her quirky self. She’s so easy to like, so easy to relate to, that I enjoyed this book even more than I thought I would. Sam is a fighter through and through, and even though she still has bumps along the way of her road to recovery, she doesn’t give up. She wants to recover; she can’t go back to normal, because she doesn’t even know what normal is for her anymore, but she wants to be able to overcome her fears, and I admired her for that.

What Sam never expected was to find Griffin along the road of her recovery. Sweet, sexy, supportive Griffin, who puts Sam first over everything, who has loved Sam from afar for so long. I was totally rooting for him in Only for You, because it’s obvious to everyone but Samantha how much Griffin really cares for her. Griffin was devastated when he learned of Sam’s attack, and vowed to do everything he could to make her life better. And he does, so much. He’s been waiting for her for so long, and no matter how long he has to wait for her, he will wait for her. And during this wait, he does everything to take care of Sam and to support her.

As the two of them spend more and more time together, Sam learns to trust again. It’s a painful path, not an easy one, but through Griffin, Sam is able to heal. Samantha is so strong and brave, and it was so heartwarming to read how Sam learns to trust Griffin, and even love him.

I had a wonderful time reading Pieces for You. It’s heart-wrenching and emotional, and it’s also sweet and moving. Samantha and Griffin’s story is heartfelt and touching, and I was smiling and laughing through most of the book. It’s an uplifting book, for sure, and one I won’t be forgetting soon.

4 hearts!
