Broken Pieces by Janine Infante Bosco
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
ARC - FROM AUTHOR FOR HONEST REVIEW
This is part two of The Riverdale Series, I really loved first book Pieces and could not wait to see what happened with these amazing characters.
Broken Pieces concentrates on the relationship between Nick Foti and Samantha Lanza. Sam and Nick had a moment years ago and then Nick left without explanation. Sam was devastated but went on with her life.
Now Nick is back and he has realized he wants to pick up where they left off. But Sam has other ideas, at first. Nick is a true alpha male, with a kind heart. Sam keeps pushing him away and for awhile I was like what the heck is her problem! Then we find out a secret she's held that lets us understand why she feels like she can't give Nick a chance.
Events unfold in the Lanza clan and Samantha realizes she needs Nick more than ever but will she allow him in long enough for her to realize that they are meant to be?
The story flows really well, I believe it was very true to the characters established in book one. Once again I felt like I was part of the group. I laughed at some parts, and cried at others. Sam made me mad a few times but then the author made me understand her broken heart.
There is a nice HEA and a few surprises as well as a very well written lead in to the conclusion Fitting the Pieces.
Highly recommend the series, it a really AMAZING read.

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it's been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn't start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn't long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa's brain and The Love Series was born.
Bestselling Author of the Savannah Series. I published my first novel Irresistible Desire last March, and since then it's been whirlwind year! I love my die hard fans #KaydensAngels!

A stay-at-home mom, Chelsea spends her days drinking entirely too much caffeine, baking sugar-sweet treats she never eats, and jotting down notes for her novels. A dreamer at heart, she's creating happily ever afters. She's a lover, a writer, a dreamer, would rather type than speak, wants to remember everything, loves lots of ice in her drinks, and is slightly introverted.
Scarlett lives in the Midwest with her sexy husband, two girls, and three furbabies. She dabbled in writing right after college but it wasn't until she took up blogging about eight years ago that she started writing seriously. After writing a few boring service pieces for some online publications, she went back to her true passion, fiction. When she's not busy writing steamy stories, she can be found with her nose in a book, camping, or geocaching with her family. She loves Diet Coke, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and 80's hair bands.
Marissa Carmel has loved writing ever since a young age. She has a duel degree in History and Political Science, but took as many creative writing classes in college as she could. She spent most of her twenties bartending which is where she met her husband and a multitude of interesting people. When she’s not reading or writing, she’s hanging out with her family, experimenting in her kitchen or doing yoga on the living room floor.

I'm Ashley Johnson and I live in Lake Charles, La with my fiancee and our daughter!
I love to read and write...I love getting lost in all these amazing books :) My fiancee recently learned about my addiction to Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Oops!!
Before this past year, I can't tell you the last time I picked a book up. Then I got an e-reader and suddenly found all these amazing books. It started with Beautiful Disaster and from there I was hooked and realized I wanted to live my dream. And here I am :)
I love to cook and eat...that's what I get for living in Louisiana but I wouldn't have it any other way.
I love music too, I have a serious addiction to iTunes!
That's the basics :)
