Are you ready for this provocative, suspenseful read?

I don't even really know where to start with this one. I will say this...Any author that can branch out from her normal genre of romance and write something like this says tremendous things about them. The first person point of view of this book was interesting and it worked. It was beyond fascinating seeing Reese from the POV we did and written any other way I don't think this book would have been what it is and that w

It is hard to categorize. It is part romance, part mystery. It is 100% fun.

Reese was uber rich, spoiled, and obsessed with appearing in the media. Three years ago, her father was arrested for embezzling 220 million dollars, 20 millions of which had not been recovered. She went into hiding because everyone was after her, thinking she knew where the money was.

Reese is a heroine with whom I generally would not sympathize, but Julianna Keyes made her very relatable. She is paranoid about people re

Twenty Million dollars are still missing and the Feds want it ... and so do a particular couple of men that it was stolen from. Her brother died in a one-car accident ...

28 year old Reese Charlotte Carlisle lives a life mostly in seclusion, ever since her life had changed so drastically upon the scandal that had broken her family apart. With her father in jail, her brother no more, Reese is all alone in the world and she prefers the anonymity her current life affords her. The only voice she allows herself is the meaningless one night stands she engages in on occasion, assuming different identities that suits her when the mood strikes.

The book was a bullet ride; it captured me with the encapsulation of life that Reese was lining where her father was in prison for embezzlement and the feds were after those millions until she met a man who praised her and she told him things about herself. But both were lying.

My first book by this author, I flew through the book as it was fast-paced, there were enough twists and action to keep me hooked to my kindle. The writing made me excited to know what would happen to Reese and who the ne

The perfect combination of romance and mystery (which are 2 of my favorite genres)! I could not put this book down!

Reese Carlisle has been in hiding for the last 3 years going under different aliases to protect herself from the public eye. Her father was arrested for the biggest embezzlement scheme in history, stealing $220 million. The FBI has recovered all but the last $20 million and everyone thinks that Reese knows where it is.

This is a really great, sexy, thriller of a ride. Apparently, the author is known for romance books (not really my genre). However, this is a fabulous, exciting tale about a woman whose father has been imprisoned for embezzlement and who is trying to get her life back together after much media speculation about her role in his crimes.
In doing so she has become a hermit except for her evening forays to meet strangers where she adapts a different role each time.
This is, until she meets a stranger

the plot sounded interesting, and it was in general. however, it took me a while to get into it and i feel like it was because of the writing style. i felt like it didn't matched the story or the genre and it made it hard for me to connect to anyone in the story. once things got going, about 20% into the book, it got better. it was an quick, fun, what's-gonna-happen-next? type of story, which i enjoyed. it was a cool mix of romance and mystery, and a good time overall. ...more

Julianna Keyes has returned with a brand new genre for her: romantic suspense. This first foray into this new area was quite well done. It kept my interest throughout trying to put all the pieces of this puzzle together.

Reese is basically a hermit, after her father’s arrest for embezzlement, and her brother’s death. She’s the only Carlisle left, and has been a constant target for the public. She goes into hiding and only comes out for dates where she takes on a brand new persona every time. She

I’ve enjoyed Julianna Keyes’ Charleston Thrashers sports romances so thought I’d give her sexy suspense a try. It didn’t disappoint.

I liked Reese’s journey and while I started out feeling pity for her character, somewhere along the line that pity turned into respect. She found her life of solitude getting more difficult and I thought the story that unfolded when she stepped out of the security of her small lonely world intriguing and well constructed.

I like almost everything Julianna Keyes writes. I liked this, too. But.

All the Missing Pieces is dark and depressing - and I struggled to cozy up to our heroine/survivor Reece. The plot feels a tad too predictable almost from the moment we meet the second half of the "romantic" pairing and realize he's up to shenanigans. Fortunately, Keyes keeps a few secrets as the novel unfolds, and readers will have to wait to the near end for answers about a big secret our heroine may or may not be

I mostly read romance these days, the high anxiety books that I read primarily for years no longer hold much appeal. (I get too tense, and can't stand the suspense, at my middle age.) Because I love Julianna Keys's books, I was excited to give this one a try.

All the Missing Pieces hooked me from the start. I read it in one sitting and didn't get bored at any point. The suspense is there, but I never felt overwhelmed by the chaos in the book.

Romance is also present in the book, but I think it

This is the opening line of this book.

There's a reason Reese is living like a hermit. Three years ago, his father got arrested for stealing 200 million dollars. But 20 million dollars is still missing and they think she knows where it is. Then, his brother Alex dies in an accident. They think she killed her own brother. So basically, Reese is hiding.

In these 3 long years, when loneliness gets too much to bear, she pretends to be someone else and meets people. Just on

Having loved many of Julianna Keyes's books I knew I needed to read All the Missing Pieces. And I was right- the story did not disappoint and was full of atmospheric moments. It's satisfying in both the romance and suspense department.

I liked seeing the contrast between past and present Reese. Compared to the proud and flashy old her, the new Reese was miserable and paranoid. Her change in demeanor was justified given her whole world was turned upside down by two life-changing occasions. The way

Reese Carlisle has undergone a major shift in priorities the last three years. She used to only focus on when the next party was, avoiding the paparazzi, and getting ready to take over the family business.

This one just didn’t quite hit the spot for me.

Reese Carlisle is basically a hermit. She lives unhappy in the wake of her father’s crime of major embezzlement.

She dons different personalities with fake names to hookup with guys from a dating site, just so she can have a little human contact. One night, while out on a date with Doug, she meets Chris, who’s clearly out of place in this upscale restaurant with his elbow patches and fake Rolex.

I enjoyed this, Ms. Keyes is a great storyteller and her stories pull you in, and this has an interesting plot. I enjoyed that Reese was a flawed heroine. The plot had a few surprises. I will say the romance was a little less satisfying, but I don’t think this was intended as a romance. Ms. Keyes heroes often don’t do any groveling or even apologizing, yet are seemingly forgiven for some pretty bad actions. Of course this not being a romance might explain some of that, but I’ve noticed it in som ...more

All the missing pieces Jules Keyes. Omg I loved this book. Reese was such a compelling character, with her past and secretive routines and her sheer strength to survive. But her carelessness with men, especially chris, was so refreshing because how can someone so careful to hide their identity be so foolish with people they’re getting the most intimate with??

This book was just twist after twist after twist. The first 20% was extremely slow and took me a while to get through but when the book picked up it didn’t stop. I really liked the twists and how Reese handled everything she discovered. While she was annoying at times, she wasn’t a weak character and I appreciated how she looked out for herself and how she handled the entire situation.

3.75 Hearts A bit romance, a bit mystery and a whole lot of good read. After Reese’s dad goes to jail for stealing a butt-load of money Reese goes into hiding, sorta. She is still out in the world but under a bunch of pseudonyms and back stories. Then she meets Chris.

There are a lot of things to figure out while we enjoy the HOT romance between “Denise”/Reese and Chris. Does Reese have or know where the missing $20M went? If Reese isn’t who she says she i

I read more romance novels than I care to admit and they’ve always kept me entertained. Over the last few months - okay, the last year - there have been many DNF romance on my shelf. I felt like I was reading the same stories, same characters, and same themes. I found myself growing bored with Romance. What Ms. Keyes has done here is something rather remarkable. Not only writing an interesting romance novel but creating a entirely new genre. I was excited, on the edge of my seat, anxious, and en ...more

I received a complimentary copy of All the Missing Pieces in exchange for an honest review. This is not normally a genre I find myself reading, but I'm so glad I took a chance on this book. I was quickly immersed into the story, and asking myself, "what is going on?" The more I read, the more I wanted to figure out what was happening. It became really "real" when Reese found out Chris wasn't what he appeared. I never saw that one coming. This was a great find, and I'd highly recommend reading th ...more

Wow, I loved this well written, riveting read! It is likely not for all, as it’s quite dark and very depressing, but I’m a dark, bleak lover! I thought this had done great suspense. The author made sure to write it in a manner that kept my attention from beginning until end! I do recommend to any and all who enjoy this genre, as it’s quite unputdownable and will give you some good thrills! If you have triggers on depressing and dark things, it may not be for you!

The author is one of my favorites as she does not hesitant to explore complex and flawed characters. She is definitely under-rated. The main character, Reese, sounded a lot like Paris Hilton but was living as a hermit after her father was jailed for embezzlement and her brother died in a car accident involving her. She was having a causal relationship with a guy Chris who made her feel again. However, his intentions may not be genuine. I liked how brave she was trying to uncover the layers of se ...more

I'll say right up front that my favorite genre is romance and I usually steer away from romantic suspense and thrillers. But confession time: I love this author and I'll probably always read all of Julianna Keyes books. I've read every single book she has published so far and she has never disappointed me. Keyes is a very versatile, talented writer. She proves with "All the Missing Pieces" that she can write suspense like a pro. I could not predict where the plot was going and I was guessing rig ...more
