NEW ADULT CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

Book #2 PIECES OF PERFECTION will be out in May 2014





Bobby Beckerson was the American All-Star hockey player--he was the spitting image of perfection to his family. Goofy, sweet and undeniably gorgeous, he had everything but the one girl he wanted: River Ahlers.
River Ahlers is successful in everything but love. She's been in love with Adam Beckerson since they were kids. Worst of all she's stuck right in the middle of the brother's dueling over everything and anything, and she doesn't even know she's the ultimate prize.
Adam Beckerson was a boy with a guitar, a smile that sunk girl's hearts and a stone wall around his own. He was anything but perfect, and no matter how hard he tried he was nothing compared to Bobby. Sweet, damaged, with boyish good-looks, nobody thought Adam loved anyone but himself.
Bobby loved River, River loved Adam and Adam only loved himself--or so everyone thought. Then one night everything changes, and as it threatens to destroy everyone involved a tragedy strikes that will break them all...



MY THOUGHTS

River has been best friends with the Beckerson brothers Adam & Bobby all her life.
She has been in love with Adam since she was 12.
Bobby is in love with River.
Bobby is the golden boy of the family &
Adam doesn't seem to get any love or recognition from his parents. The boys have always been in competition with each other - about everything in live.
☺ It's all horribly & wonderfully complicated.☺

 

Now they're all grown up - living in the same building.
River is still in love with Adam, but he's just her best friend, or is he???☺☺☺

Bobby is crazy jealous of his brother. He's always known his brother has feelings for River too. But he never told River about that.

Poor River is overwhelmed with all those feelings and friendships and it's all so sad and crazy and exciting and sexy and frustrating.


WILL RIVER GET HER HAPPY EVER AFTER WITH ADAM?
And what about poor Bobby - he always had this secret hope that he will one day be enough for River.

And Adam - he always thought he won't ever be good enough for her, because that's what he felt like growing up - not being good enough for anybody. 

I won't tell you what will happen of course ☺ 



You have to read it yourself - AND PLEASE DO READ IT!





♥ I LOVED THE BOOK ♥


Once I started reading, I just couldn't stop!!! I read it in one night!!!
It was just so interesting - I NEEDED to know what will happen with those 3!

You start reading thinking, ok - hurry up already - Adam & River will end up together - Bobby is unlikable and that's it - The End - HEA.

HA!!! Nope - you start reading - and yes, you want Adam and River together - but you're really sorry for poor Bobby too, some of the time at least ;)
And you're sorry for Adam too and for River - she's trying so hard not to hurt anybody and still be happy.
It's such a complicated relationship they all have. You just want to know how it all ends.

But it's not ending at all!!! There will be 4 books in this series! 

At the end of book 1 you will probably sit there and cry, just like I did.... cry for Adam & River & Bobby & everything that could've been and may be or never will be ....

I loved the story.
In the beginning I wanted them to hurry the F up - I wanted Adam & River happily together - but they take their time and when they finally make it, there's still Bobby to think about - they don't want to hurt him more than they already did.

A few things that bothered me? 
Well - the sex scenes - there weren't any really. Yes, there were some, but not explicit enough for my taste. It wouldn't have hurt the story to make those scenes a bit longer and more explicit. But that's just me - most people don't have a problem with that.
 But that's the only thing that bothered me a bit - oh and of course the tiny little fact that we have a
CLIFFHANGER-ish Ending ☺



THIS WAS A WONDERFULLY MOVING AND ROMANTIC AND SEXY AND SAD ROMANCE!!!
YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO STOP THINKING ABOUT IT FOR A WHILE AFTER YOU FINISH READING!


GRRRRRR ... 
NOW I CAN'T WAIT FOR BOOK #2 TO COME OUT IN MAY!!!!!
