I felt really sorry for Jade again in this one. I was so rooting for her to have a happy ever after.

This was another really good read. I didn't think I'd like this one as much as book one, But I actually enjoyed it more.

Overall, A really good sequel.

I was really excited to read this book after I read the first book, and then especially after I read the novella that is the first book told from one of the main guys point of views! I wasn't 100% sure how the author was going to do this book after the events of the first book, but I did have a few ideas! I can say that some of my ideas happened in this book lol! Quite a few things happened that I wasn't expecting though! The plot was amazing! It was really emotional, and I do have to admit that ...more

I'm pretty sure Jamie Canosa is trying to kill me.

First, there was Falling to Pieces, which was AMAZING, but left me...

And then there was Angel, which was equally AMAZING, but also equally heart shattering.

And then... Pieces of My Heart. Kiernan's funeral in the prologue made me cry (again). And then there were these other beautiful moments interspersed throughout that made me want to cry. And then... and THEN... AND THEN THERE WAS THE ENDING. Holy Hades, I swear the beginning of the epilogue ga

The ending of this definitely leaves you wanting. It wasn't necessarily a bad ending, but it wasn't exactly the happy ending I wanted. With all the bad stuff that happens to Jade throughout the book...why couldn't she just have had a happy ending? There was a note of hope in the ending though, which makes you believe that things are only going to be better for Jade from here on out. Which is good. And she has Cal. So I can't really complain.

The characters in this book are the kind that won't let

Wow, the Pieces trilogy seriously took me on a rollercoaster of emotions. Lots of tissues were needed. Rocking yourself to stay in one piece was needed. I've felt emotions before for characters, but never to this power. The characters touched me in a way never felt before. The author is extremely talented and I look forward to reading more of her books.

Even though it’s been awhile since I read the first book, emotional swelled up at soon as I started reading the first page. All the moments from the first book kept running through my mind and they still cut deep. I knew from the first chapter that I was going to be an emotional mess by the end of the book. I was not disappointed and looked a wreck by the end. Jamie Canosa writes a powerful story that packs an emotional punch.

So every now and then I read a bo

Honestly, when I heard that there will be a second book in the Pieces series I was a little skeptical. I was afraid that Jade’s life will become more complicated and way to unbearable.

NOTE: If you haven’t read Falling to Pieces, you should be warned that I will inevitable have a few spoilers from the book.

In Falling to Pieces, Jade’s life is turned upside down, she is broken and alone. Kiernan is the only one who tries to fix her and he succeeds. However, after all the struggles and after she

**WARNING: This review contains spoilers for book 1: Falling to Pieces and book 1.5: Angel**

I was devastated. Absolutely devastated after Falling to Pieces. Even though I knew that Kiernan was going to die, I was still shattered. By his death. By the loss. By Jade walking away from Caulder.

I was dying to get my hands on this book. I knew that, while Jade and Kiernan were great together, she needed Caulder in a way she couldn't comprehend. After reading Angel I knew how much he needed her too. I

O ile pierwsza część zrobiła na mnie niesamowite wrażenie, to druga poruszyła mnie do głębi. Co z tego, że Kiernanowi udało się uwierzyć Jade w siebie i odzyskać poczucie własnej wartości, skoro jego śmierć i pojawienie się ojca w życiu jej matki zniweczyły wszystko i poczyniły takie zniszczenia w życiu Jade, że nie było co zbierać. Caulder też jest złamany i kompletnie sobie nie radzi po śmierci brata, ale przez cały czas chce być blisko Jade i służyć jej pomocą. Kiedy ona zamykając się w sobie ...more

This series has been one of the most emotional series that I have ever read. It has made me ugly cry more than once, but I can't get enough of it. I love nothing more than to be emotionally destroyed by a good book, but Jamie takes it to a whole new level with this one. I love Cal and Jade as characters, and I loved watching them help each other heal and move forward into the future. I have been emotionally invested in these characters from the beginning, so I had high expectations going into th ...more

Pieces of my Heart by Jamie Canosa is the second book in her Pieces series.

Did you just finish Book 1 (Falling to Pieces)? Have you recovered yet? It has been months for me but as soon as I began this book the wounds were opened up fresh and the tears began to fall.

I'm not even sure I wanted to know where the story went from it's ending in book 1. Jamie Canosa pulls no punches and if she has a powerful, heart-breaking story ready to tell, apparently she does it. Ah-Maze-Ing!

So Jade is starting

Welcome to cryfest 2015. My name is Sympathy, and I’ll be your host for the festival.

Pieces of my Heart is an emotional story that continues the Pieces series (and the book that made me weep like a little baby, Falling to Pieces). I had only just finished reading the prologue and I already found myself crying. It wasn’t as bad as it was when I finished reading Falling to Pieces, but it definitely showed me that this was not going to be good on my emotional sanity. It is a wonderfully amazing st

My Thoughts: After reading book one, Falling to Pieces, I was a bit worried about reading Pieces of my Heart...and with good reason. WOW! Another tear-jerker from Jamie. Caulder, my new favorite character in a book, is amazing. He is strong and care and perfect for Jade. Just what she needs. The story MUST be read with a box of kleenex though, so beware. At one point I thought something HORRIBLE had happened to...??? Yeah, I was VERY anger. I cursed Jamie for yet another tear-jerker...thankfully ...more

This book had the potential to be so much more. Reading this felt like reading book 1 all over again. Jade never gained any confidence about herself. Someone always had to save her and then the story moved so fast. I still feel like the story isn't finished. The last chapter and epilogue left me with questions. Did they really get the hea? Did he finish school? Does she ever find any self confidence? The chapter with his dad is it really close? What does Jade do with her life? See the list could ...more

An up all Night read...amazing story

I had read all the other books in this series and loved them. This book was just as good if not better than the others Read this series in order. Its very important because in order to see and appreciate the transformation of Jade you need to know where this all started. A girl that found love and understanding from one guy and his brother continues the tradition. Great story.

I just couldn't get into this and I really only read it for some semblance of closure. There were times I liked it but mostly, I was just getting annoying and skimming sections where Jade kept going back to her mother. It was like come on already.... The only reason I finished was because I don't like leaving books unfinished.

if anyone deserved a happy ending in all the books I've read it's Jade. her life was so hard and so heartbreaking. and she was such a good person. I only gave 4 stars because I really wish there would have been some glimpse into the future..I really wanted to know how life ended up for her.

I couldn't wait for this book to come out and it was amazing. The first book was so good so I did have my doubts whether or not she could pull through with number 2 and she didn't disappoint. I'd definitely recommend this book!

Words cannot describe....

This book. It takes my breath away. Yes it has a HEA but the in between us what I loved. Jade definitely didn't have it easy. Her life was indescribable to me but the author, Jamie Canosa, but it into words for me. And for this I say Thank You.

Uuuuuugggghhhh. Jamie Canosa is killing me! I would love for another book to this series but I honestly don't think that would even be enough. I loved this series and it is a rare find for me to have a book that can pull me out of reality for even a few minutes and this was the PERFECT escape.

Thank goodness Calder is there. Poor Jade is still being pulled through the ringer by her family. Her self doubt is rearing it's ugly head once again. Calder helps her see she deserves more.

“Life kept going no matter what. And I tried to keep up. I really did. I ran and I ran and I ran. Hurdling every obstacle in my way. But I was tired. I was so damn tired of trying to keep up. Of hurdling one obstacle after another, only to find more in my path. And in the end, where did all of that running and jumping get me? Nowhere. My life was a freaking treadmill and it felt like someone kept upping the speed until I was running full sprint just trying not to fall on my face.” 1 likes
