"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.”
Genna Rulon for the second time this year completely bewitched me. Her phenomenal way of storytelling and gut wrenching plot made me fa ...more
DISCLAIMER!!: This is Sam and Griffin's story!! Those of you who haven't read the first book please do before this book releases since Sam's story starts really from there!!
”You are everything to me. All those pieces of me amount to nothing on their own—you are my whole. I was designed to be pieces for you.”
I cannot express in words the magnitude of which I loved and appreciated Pieces For You. Genna Rulon, I’ve come to think of you as a friend, and all bias aside I think th ...more
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 ...more
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!
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 ...more
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.”
My Thoughts on Pieces for You:
First off, I ha ...more
WHAT. A. BOOK.
OHMYGOODNESS, GRACIOUS. Step aside Hunter, there's a new swoon-worthy character giving you a run for your money. Griffin, Griffin, Griffin!! What a perfect match for Sam.
And Sam... a strong character, determined to overcome all ...more
Firstly I would like to thank the author and the tour organizers for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.
Whoa!!! I'm totally impressed with this second installment. I loved the first part but this one just knocked me over totally. [Maybe I said this for Book 1 too!!!] This series is one of the best Contemporary romance novels that I read and you guys know that I don't r ...more
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.
“If I don't talk, I can try to pretend it didn't happen. That it was just a nightmare I have yet to wake up from. If I open my mouth and say the words it becomes real, and if it's real, then I can never escape it.”
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.
PEPPER: Sam is probably one of my favorite book chicks of all time. And I am so glad she got her story. And that i ...more
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 me ...more
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. Believe me when I say Genna Rulo...more

I have fallen in love with the first book in this series, and now the second book had me hooked again as I read and anticipate Sam & Griffin’s story towards healing, trust, and love.
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 t ...more

“Que a full blown orchestra with every instrument imaginable”. My heart strings were definitely tugged with beyond belief. This series is like a diamond in a rough. You think you are getting the same story that we are all use to but in my opinion, y ...more
*** Warning: this review will have spoilers for Only For You. Proceed with caution if you've not read it.***
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 woul ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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. Seriously, I read 3 books within the same week and thought that I should maybe reread Pieces For You again because I liked it ten times more than the other 3 books. I know, I think I mig ...more
