"I love you in a way that will never ebb or fail—it will thrive and deepen every day. I don’t want to experience life without you ever again; I don’t want to live without those pieces of me.”

Pieces for You is the second installment in Genna Rulon’s For You series and focuses on Sam Whitney and Griffin Evenson after the events of book one, Only For You. Pieces for You could be read as a standalone but I would not recommend doing so as you would miss important details of the series. I loved OFY and had been looking forward to Sam’s story since I finished book one and her story completely exceeded my expectations

I am still blown away by this book. I enjoyed the first in the series, but I absolutely adored this one. I was definitely nervous upon starting it, as I knew this was Sam’s book and Sam underwent some serious trauma in the last book. This book focuses on her healing from her ordeal and learning how to cope with life after. I loved Sam’s spunk and fun-loving, sarcastic attitude in the last book. She is definitely the more adventurous one between her and her best friend Everleigh and her enthusias ...more

I would like to start off this review by disclosing that I AM BIASED! If you read this book you will find a lovely acknowledgement at the end from Genna to yours truly all about how rad I am. After Genna reached out to me months ago to read and review Book # 1 Only For You, we became friends and I worked very closely with her during the writing of Pieces For You lending my super critical eye (might as well put it to go use and I am sure my husband has appreciated the break). Biased or not, I am ...more

Pieces For You was such an emotional book for me to read. Samantha's story and everything she went through while recovering from something so awful was amazing. I love a strong heroine and Genna Rulon really knows how to write them. I really can't say enough about how much I loved this book! I did not want it to end. Even through the seriousness of the issues Sam was dealing with, there was still a lot of funny dialog in this book that I really enjoyed. Griffin is the perfect book boyfriend. I l ...more

Where can I find a Griffin or where can I send my husband to be like Griffin? Griffin is the perfect male and at times he seemed too perfect, but I'm definitely not complaining!

Any who, the story was good and mysterious, but because I'm a genius I figured out what was going on before it was revealed!

Up next, Meg's story!

I received a copy of this story for an honest review for Amber's Reading Room.

Betrayed by the man she loved and violated by a monster in Only For You, Samantha “Sam” Whitney was left shattered and on the brink of death. Pieces For You tells her story of healing and finding real love. Real love not just from a man promising a future she thought she lost, but love for herself. Both beautiful and moving while being funny and sexy, Pieces For You hooked me quick and I was happy that it wouldn't let

Pieces for You takes you on journey. An emotional journey but one full of hope and with plenty of pit stops for humour. And having now loved two books by this author, I know I’m happy to journey though her books anytime I need swoons and smiles.

First line of Pieces for You:

“Since I refuse to speak, the big boss, Shelly, has give me a journal with a promise that I don’t have to share the contents, as long as I write down my thoughts each day.”

Pieces For You follows Samantha’s recovery and journey into living again after her brutal attack and rape. Sam has always been the uplifting, funny, flirty BFF that has no filter and is known for her TMI moments, but now she feels shattered and hollow.

PEPPER: So Pieces For You (PFY)- I think I loved this book even more than Only For You (OFY). I didn’t think it could have gotten any better. Loved it!!

MICHELLE: I know!!! It was amazing. I know we've said this many many times- but when a book has a strong heroine- I automatically love it 100 times more.

And Sam is so amazing, I can't even stand it.

Just a heads up: If you have NOT read Only For You yet please read it FIRST! If you read Pieces For You first it's fine. It can be read as a standalone, however it's a lot better to read Only For You first.

So here's the thing, I absolutely Loved Only For You! It was an amazing story that sucked emotions out of m

When I was first approached by Genna Rulon to read Only For You, I have to admit I was excited. You can tell a lot about an author not only by their approach but by the way they speak.  Genna was humble, she was funny, she was kind, and I could tell that Only For You was going to be a good book. I was not disappointed! You can and should read my review for Only For You here. When Genna asked me to beta read Pieces For You I was surprised and unbelievably honored.

I am so in love with this series and this book blew me away! It was above and beyond my expectations. Sam is so strong and Griffin compliments her so well. Griffin is a dream come true and if I meet a man like him, I won't EVER be letting go!

I am absolutely, unequivocally in love with this series and Piece for You was fantastic. I adored Hunter in Only for You but Genna managed to create and even finer male specimen in Griffin and knocked Hunter to the #2 spot. I love the way she mix

Sam was one of my favorite characters in Genna Rulon's first book, Only For You. I was absolutely devastated when she was brutally attacked by creepy bastard terrorizing their campus. At the end I knew she was alive, but completely broken and unlike the woman she once was. I was so happy the second book would be her story. I figured it w

Can someone recover from meeting the devil in person, being violated and beaten by him, and then left for dead?

This was a question Samantha Whitney asked herself in her diary while in recovery at The Phoenix Center after a brutal and vicious attack that left her physically and emotionally damaged. The attack happened in Only for You and I strongly recommend reading that book before this one. I have to say, I had some reservations with the first book in the beginning, but, by half-way through

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

I loved Genna Rulon's debut novel, Only For You, the first in the For You series. With bated breath, I waited for Samantha's story. If you've read Only For You, you'll understand why I was waiting with bated breath: Sam undergoes a trauma at the end of book one and Pieces For You is her story. I'm so happy to report that Pieces For You was every bit as good as Only For You. Rulon escapes the sophomore book syndrome with ease, delivering a sequel just as compelling as the first book in the serie

Alexis: Both Leary and I became very fond of Genna's writing while reading Only For You. So, when we received the ARC for Pieces For You, we were both on it immediately. I don't want to speak for Leary, but I can say that this book caused the mother of all book hangovers for me.

Pieces for You is book two in Genna Rulon's For You series, and the majority takes place a few months after the events of book one while following Sam, Everleigh's best friend. This can be read as a standalone, but I suggest readers read Only for You first so you can understand relationship dynamics and the events that brought the characters to this point in Pieces for You.
