In Pieces, an all-new brother’s-best-friend standalone from Danielle Pearl is LIVE!
In Pieces by Danielle Pearl
Genre: New Adult Romance
Publishing Date: October 10th, 2017
Three years ago she was left in pieces . . . Most college freshmen love the newfound freedom of living on campus, but none of them craves it like Beth Caplan. One ill-fated night when she was fifteen left her locked in a posh prison of private tutors. It's for the best, everyone said, and maybe it was. But after years of hard work and healing, the one person who never thought of her as broken could be the one to break her all over again. And Beth can't seem to stay away now any more than she could all those years ago.
As soon as David March learned his best friend's little sister was enrolling at his school, he promised to look after her, and promised himself he'd keep a safe distance. But the sweet little girl he'd grown up with has transformed into a gorgeous young woman, and she's attracting attention from people she shouldn't-like the ex who nearly destroyed her and a strange new student with a disturbing habit of showing up wherever Beth goes. But for David, the most troubling discovery is realizing that he doesn't just want Beth to be safe. He wants her to be his.
In Pieces is the perfect example of why I enjoy the New Adult genre as a grown woman - when handled right, the settings, situations, and feelings are so poignant, current, and real, while also giving me such a sweet sense of nostalgia. Danielle Pearl knocked it out of the park with this tale of experiencing and learning from heartbreak, finding yourself. and the wonders of finding love right under your nose. I'm a huge fan of "older brother's best friend" tropes and this one was perfect. The familiarity Beth and David had with each other was the perfect basis for something more. Add to that the trauma of her past leeching into her present and the threat of something even more sinister, and not only was this book a great friends-to-lovers slow burn, it also has just the right measures of angst and suspense. I give In Pieces 4.25 out of 5 wine glasses and look forward to reading more from the author.
