★ Only For You (For You #1) - 5 Stars
You’ve been dealt one of the shittiest hands imaginable, most will never be challenged with a  fraction of what you have. You are one of the few with the bravery to walk through the fire, let it burn you to ash, and rise again, changed but all the more beautiful for it.

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.

Some people might have drowned themselves in oblivion if they experienced what Sam had. She was betrayed by the man she thought loves her – which had almost cost her life. Broken and lost, Sam spends months at a safe haven trying to heal and regain her old self back. When it was time to return home, she still struggled to go into back into her normal life. Her old routine didn’t feel familiar anymore, and nightmare consumes her sleep. Good thing she has Everleigh, Hunter – and someone unexpected – Griffin.

He shouldn’t have waited. He should have acted on his feelings back then – maybe he could have protected Sam. But Griffin cannot turn the time anymore. So, he focused on the now. He wanted to support her, show that he cares but not to the point of overwhelming her. He gives her the space that she needs, but still near enough to catch her when she falls.

But it seems her nightmares weren’t enough – threats starts to come. How far does Griffin willing to take to protect her?  

If you loved Everleigh and Hunter in the first book, I’m sure you will fall in love with these two as well. I had admire Sam’s courage to surpass what happened to her, and brave enough to fight back. Some would probably mum, keep it to themselves because of shame – but Sam, despite the threats, the tempting monetary offer – had stood her ground. She had been violated, she will fight for her right. She is an inspiration for those women who had experience the same tragic effect in their lives.  The initial shock might have had her in a bad state, but once it had faded, she tries every single day to come back into her old self. She wouldn’t let a single event shape her life.

As for our hunk, Griffin – I love the way he loves her.

The waiting – giving Sam the time she needed to heal and trust me – may kill be, but I would suffer anything to have her.

You can feel the strength of it, but not to the point of overbearing. He takes care of her, he was patient with her and didn’t push knowing she wasn’t ready to do anything yet. He was a complete gentleman and I adore him. He would do ANYTHING for her – he will even risk his life, his future to make sure she’s safe.

The friendship Everleigh and Hunter had given these two are priceless. They had both become Sam’s pillar during the time she needed help the most. They didn’t complain that their privacy was invaded, or when she woke them up in the middle of the night screaming.

Just like the first book – this one is filled with sexual tension, surprises, twists and unforeseen enemies. I didn’t stop until I finished the last page – I wanted to know how these two will get their HEA and who’s behind the threats. Just when I thought I knew who – I was in for the biggest surprise of my life.

Pieces of You is a story of healing and survival. It’s about a girl who thought she had lost everything – and come back, stronger, ready to conquer whatever life throws at her. It’s a story about friendship, and love – trust and honesty being the main ingredients for the survival of a relationship. Pieces of You tells us a story about love strong enough to survive trials, the storms and even the darkest of times. It’s a story that will inspire a lot of scared women to gain courage and to never give up hope. It’s a must read.

He smelled so damn good, clean with a hint of masculine sweat, a temptation I couldn’t resist.  Beyond my control, my tongue darted out of my mouth and covertly tasted the section of chest exposed above his tank.  Oh God, he tasted even better than he smelled, like a chocolate-covered pretzel—sweet, salty, and addictive.

“Did you just…lick me?” he asked, sounding both shocked and amused.

“I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

“You licked me.  I felt it,” he accused, but I noticed he wasn’t complaining.

“Your imagination is running wild because of all the workout endorphins.”

“It wasn’t a complaint.  In fact, you’re welcome to have another taste.”

“Fine…I licked you.  But it was an involuntary reflex—hot guy, exposed chest…you know how it is.”

“Mmm,” he replied, his eyes darkening with lust.  “I am familiar with the temptation, but it’s not a hot guy who’s testing my self-control…it’s a petite, auburn-haired vixen.”

After 15 years in the corporate world, Genna, an avid reader, fantasized about penning her own stories. Encouraged by the success of her favorite authors, many of whom are self-published, she committed to pursuing her aspirations.
