As a sexy ex-hockey player, Max was the bad boy with something to prove. As a handsome single father, Adam was the man most women wait a lifetime for. Each man would take me on a journey of self-discovery that was marred with lies, jealousy, deceit, and a whole lot of fun. They each offered a glimpse of happily ever after, a piece of pe

I absolutely LOVED this book!!

"I have endured the journey. I have withstood the adventure. I have learned that perfect doesn't exist. That, in reality, you're lucky to just get pieces of it. And that's exactly what I had, though I didn't appreciate it at the time. Now, I know better."

It has been a while that I have enjoyed reading a book THIS much!
I devoured every single page.

If you're a fan of the love triangle then this is the book for you. And boy does it start off on a bang!

Nothing like some HOT airplane/airport sex to start things off. Lily has just left her parents vacation home for the Christmas break. She's headed back to Philly when she meets Max in the airport. It's pretty much hate at first sight. Max is kind of a pig but despite that, Lily is still attracted to him.

After the sex-capade, Lily goes on about her life....they p

I'm honestly not sure what to think of this book. On one hand, it was really good and I couldn't put it down. But on the other hand...It really irritated me.

So I'll break it down...A book always starts with 5 stars with me. And over the course of reading, I adjust the scale to reflect what's happening in the book and my reaction to it. So, I started with 5, deducted a star for cheating (yes, I call it cheating) and another for the ending. So that leaves me with a 3. The only pro

I’m frustrated and I’m angry. Straight up – I believe it is a cliff-hanger… well at least I hope it is, because I definitely need resolution!

This was a hot read love triangle. I’ve read ménage before but a love triangle is a new area for me. I’m not sure I’m entirely comfortable with it. The sexual tension was definitely in place between our three main characters. But in order to have a love triangle, there is cheating and that’s the part I’m conflicted with.

Pieces of Perfect is the debut novel of Elizabeth Hayley, a writing team that consists of two friends, (Elizabeth & Hayley) who have decided to combine their love for reading with their degrees in English. With admittedly similar dirty minds their writing styles seamlessly flow into each other’s. This team writes as one would expect a seasoned author to and we are sure to see them on the best seller lists in no time.

The story is well developed as are the characters. The reader is able to place t

Well aren't you two ladies clever clogs !! I thought this was a fabulous book, and our writers certainly got us hooked on both the leading men Max the ex pro hockey player and Adam the single parent to 12 year old Eva, who just so happens to be a pupil of the leading lady Lily.
Both men sound completely gorgeous, so I understand why Lily had such a hard time , but really she should have made up her mind and stuck to it.
This is a love triangle between the three of them and I'm not going to say wh

Ok I was not sure about this book until about 90% into it...But there was something that told me to keep reading, keep experiencing and keep getting turned the fuck on because my GOD was the SMUT fucking HOT!!!

GeeeSUS there was a fire in my PANTS!!

This book starts out with a literal BANG... At first I was like whaaatt... This isn't real life (well duh it's fiction) but come on this is stretching it a bit much. But then I was like whoooaa this is totally effing HOT (no longer giving a fuck that

Two words: Disgusting and Shallow. I was going to give the book only a one-star rating but since the end was really good, I think it deserves another star. This book has excellent reviews on Goodreads and I honestly don't know why. Lily, the female lead character is a slut and Max, her friend with benefits is a man whore!(Sorry but I can't think of better words to describe them) Adam, Lily's boyfriend saves the face. He's a good and stable guy and he deserved much better than Lily. Actually, eve ...more

Oh Wow! I couldn't put this down! The writing was great and it provoked such emotions. I loved Adam....looooooooved Max and HATED Lily! At first I thought she was kind of funny and cute but that lasted for about 3 pages and then I found her to be immature and selfish. I wouldn't be able to choose between Adam and Max myself LOL. I did lean toward Max though. When Adam first appeared I thought he sounded too good to be true and there must be something bad about him but there was nothing. He was p ...more

ARC kindly provided in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler-free review. 4 stars.

First off I want to say that I love that this book was created by a writing team comprised of two friends - Elizabeth and Hayley.

I got sucked into Elizabeth Hayley’s debut book Pieces of Perfect from the first few pages. While I was reading PoP I felt like I was watching a car accident as this hot love triangle unraveled. You know the “I can’t look away” feeling? What a rollercoaster. Arghhh… I stayed up

The love triangle created between Lily, bad boy Max, and perfect Adam in Pieces of Perfect does not disappoint! The young and impulsive Lily finds herself in the terribly awesome predicament of falling for two wildly attractive guys who could not be more different save their determination to have her. What begins as light-hearted flings soon evolve into relationships that take Lily on an unexpected emotional journey as she begins to uncover who she really is and what she really wants in life.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review. It is definitely a 4.5 star book in my opinion. From the very beginning I was hooked. I REALLY enjoyed it. The story is based on a young somewhat insecure teacher named Lily and the two beautiful men she can't choose between. She first meets Max while checking in for her flight at the airport. Max is the extremely hot, arrogant type who won't take no for an answer. Lily tries unsuccessfully to avoid him at all cost. Not only does he end up o ...more

I am sooooo torn. I really wanted to give this more stars, it was very well written I loved Max, I loved Adam but lily!!!!! I really, really disliked her. She was a complete cow to both guys.
I think I am also so fed up with love triangles. I actually think you should have done two separate books, one for each guy as they were both great I. Completely different ways. By the end I really felt the guys were both better off without her particularly Max who strangely enough I felt worse for than Ada

Seriously, one of the best books I ever read...every girl should read it! Yes, because it does contain two hot, loving, irresistible guys...yes, because it does contain sex....yes, because it does contain romance...BUT: it also contains a huge message to women! I think every girl comes across a guy like Max once in her life. Passion without reason...and then the other side: Adam. Reliable, loving, tender. Who to choose? Personally, I loved the ending! While mostly all romance books feature a hap ...more

Fabulous book but I really need more....

Is this a cliffhanger? Will there be another book? Please tell me there will be another book .....PLEASE!!!

Lots of depth and growth along with hot and steamy love triangle can be found in this book. I really thought Adam was wonderful, sexy, irresistible and a true knight in shining armor BUT Im TEAM MAX all the way. Max is real. He put it all out there for Lilly and I loved that about him.

My only hope now is to find out that this story will be continue

Received this book to give an honest review.

I read this book in one day and was hooked from the beginning. It was really refreshing to have a story that had a realistic ending and not the usual prince charming ending with everyone living happily ever after.

Looking forward to reading more from this author and I would highly recommend this book!!
Sep 08, 2013 marked it as did-not-finish
Felt very juvenile and silly. If a man approaches you in an airport the way this man did you should call security. I loathe books that exempt a man from behaving like a pervert because he is "hot". Nice abs and a "big" package does not a real man make!
Couldn't get past chapter two... very unlikable characters...

I would have enjoyed this if there's no Adam, love triangle isn't my thing and never will be.

I skipped, A lot. Since... well, Adam. He's boring, I didn't even read their love scenes coz, hello!? I love Max and I know that she's gonna end up with Max and reading her love scenes with Adam was just...gross.

4.5 to 5 Stars.

I can't come up with a way to review this without massive spoilers, so I'll hide most of it.

I really enjoy this writing duo. This is an emotional read but in a voyeuristic way. I smirkity smirked smirked my way through this cusp of self discovery drama fest and loved it.

Okay, so I just began this book, and I’m already loving the character of Lily. She’s so funny! Saying exactly what she feels with that colorful lewd language of hers. She reminds me so much of my sister, in that respect, that I’m constantly laughing out loud. She gets herself in quite a quandry when she has sexual relations on and off an airplane with a total stranger. He’s hot and well-endowed. He’s got such a sexy smirk while knowing that he’s “all that”. How can she possibly turn this hottie ...more
I am so not a fan of the "love triangle". I just don't buy in to them. I always find there is always that one in the triangle manipulative and selfish. They are also very difficult story lines to pull off. What can possibly come from them? There is always going to be some one hurt whether by their own doing or as an innocent.

With that said, Elizabeth Hayley did an amazing job putting a very different and unexpected spin on the story.

I loved that she did not tie it all up in a cutesy little bow,
