Kiernan Parks settled all the scores. He finished what he set out to do and then . . . he left.
He left Jade. Heartbroken and weary. Existing one day to the next. One breath after another. The only way she knew how to move forward, forever missing a piece of her heart. Until an unexpected surprise throws her volatile life into upheaval, once more.
He left Caulder. Guilt-ridden and grieving. Fighting to hold it all together. Not just for himself, but for the people he cares about. Staggering under the weight of his obligations.
He left them alone.
He left them together.

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 needed to know that they were both going to be okay. I needed to know that they would be there for one another.
Pieces of My Heart took me on a pretty painful journey of love, forgiveness, and finding yourself. Jade was completely heartbreaking for most of the story. As much as I had felt that she had healed in FtP she reverted right back into her self deprecation and began questioning everything in her life again. It was SO SO hard to witness. Caulder was just as devastating. He was trying too hard to be strong for everyone else and letting little of his own pain be felt.
Watching them slowly, and painfully, find the pieces of themselves that were strewn about and damaged, repair them, both for themselves and each other, then put them back together was amazing. Amazing in a way that both ripped my heart out and healed it at the same time.
I honestly can not recommend this book, series, and author enough. If you haven’t read anything be her, and enjoy the devastating process of losing everything and in the end finding yourself, I highly recommend picking up this series.
