They could’ve been perfect.
In another time. Another world.
Where his wasn’t falling apart.
And hers wasn’t already in pieces.
High school senior Holden Eastwood only has one fear in life: growing up.
He spends his days unmotivated, moving from one game to the next, searching for his next challenge.
He never expected that challenge to come in the form of a girl…
A girl with zero fashion sense, a filthy mouth, and a bullsh*t attitude.
Unlike Holden, Jameson Taylor had no choice but to grow up.
Neglected, isolated, and forced to raise herself, Jameson only has one goal in life: graduate and move on.
The last thing she needs is some guy she can’t stand suddenly declaring her as his new hobby.
Their lives couldn’t be more opposite.
Their pasts a complete paradox.
But in each other, they find the unexpected…
They find solace.
Fragments of forever…
A forever that might tear them to pieces.
I received an ARC from the author for an honest review. Thank you!
Jay McLean is the perfect author for me if I want to read a book that has everything love, angst, humor, and a story that stays with me for days. Pieces of You is that perfect story for me, a perfect combination between love, angst, and a beautiful story.
“She’s like… a riddle. A paradox. An incomplete picture. It’s as if she only gives people fragments of herself. Pieces. I can’t help but smile. Jameson Taylor is like a puzzle.”
Holden is a character that I meet in Leo and he was the perfect friend for Mia. I was curious to know more about him and his story and was happy when I found out that will get his book. Holden is a senior in high school and Jamie is the new girl in his school. They spent time together and for Holden, Jamie becomes a puzzle.
“And maybe I had it wrong.
Maybe Holden Eastwood isn’t the flame to my moth.
Maybe he’s the moon.
Guiding me out of my darkness.”
Jamie had a difficult life and for her going to school is a new experience. For once, she is a normal teenager and has normal problems. She is very mature for her age and Holden becomes her friend and she learns to have fun with him. I love her because she is a fighter and she knows what she wants.
For Holden, Jamie was the lesson of life and he admired and respected her strength. I loved he wanted to protect her and make her see herself clearly. I loved that Holden showed her that she deserves to be loved and that she is extraordinary.
”It would’ve been perfect. We could’ve been perfect. In another time. Another world. Where mine wasn’t falling apart. And hers wasn’t already in pieces.”
I loved this story and the characters Jamie and Holden. I recommend to everyone Pieces of You. I can’t wait to read the next book.
Pieces of You is Live!
