After a devastating year apart and thousands of miles of distance between them, Claire met sexy surfer Adam Parker. With his awful jokes and profound patience, he helped Claire pick up the shattered pieces of her broken heart for the second time. But now Chris has returned and he is willing and determined to make Claire's dreams come true - the same way she did for him when she let him go. With Adam's former girlfriend in the picture, Claire finds herself torn between the new, passionate love she shares with Adam and the love and family she shares with Chris.
I absolutely loved this series by Cassia Leo. This is very much a series about Claire and her journey to find happiness in her life. It takes us on quite an emotional rollercoaster but in the end she decides who is right for her and finally gets her HEA!
The book starts a few weeks after where Pieces of You ends, and Claire is still confused and unable to think of who or what she wants in her life. The main difference this time is Claire is actually working on herself, she finally seeks help from a therapist to help her work through her issues. Claire is able to move forward, make decisions and get the much needed strength she needs to be happy with her life.
"She's working things out right now. We need to give her some time and space to do that. When she's ready, she'll come back. She just got a little lost."
Chris is still focusing on trying to be a part of Abby's life. There is so much heartache for both he and Claire concerning Abby that neither of them would have been able to heal or move on with their lives with out some sort of closure regarding Abby. Adam also needs closure, with Lindsay, before he will be able to move forward with Claire. Claire figures out very early on who her heart belongs to and we get to see the struggles and triumphs they all encounter along the way. They grew apart, they grew together and they were all able to move on and be content with the decisions they each made.
"Claire, I want you to know that I meant it when I said you'll always own a piece of me."
"To love is to destroy pain. I love your heart."
I am very sad that this series is over because I fell in love with all of these characters. I laughed with them, cried with them and sometimes even yelled at them. I love the way the series played out and I can't wait for more from Cassia!!
