"The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies, and still defying fortune's spite; revivefrom ashes and rise.” -Miguel de Cervantes

Samantha Whitney survived unimaginable tragedy only to discover she had been betrayed by a man who claimed to love her. Shattered, Sam spends months at a safe haven trying to piece herself back together. Ready or not, the time has come for her to return home. 

As Sam struggles to resume a life that no longer feels familiar, she finds unwavering support in an unexpected, familiar face. Confronting Sam’s raw emotions and open wounds head-on, Griffin manages to take two steps forward for every step she retreats. 

But when Sam is once again threatened, Griffin must decide how far he is willing to go to protect the woman he wants…knowing the cost of her safety is the risk of losing her. 

Pieces For You is a captivating journey of survival, healing, and sacrifice—teeming with honesty, humor, unexpected twists, and love’s unsurpassed endurance. 

*Though Pieces For You is a part of the For You Series, the book can be read as a stand alone.   

My Review:

The story begins with a prologue consisting of Sam's journal entries while she's at The Phoenix Centre. For those who have not read book 1 in the series, Sam was brutally attacked and is recovering both physically and mentally. Having us start off with her journaling was a great way to get connected with Sam's character; especially for those who haven't read Only for You . I could really feel what Sam was going through and struggle along with her by reading her thoughts.

After leaving the TPC, Sam goes back to living with her best friend Ev and Ev's FBI boyfriend, Hunter. She's surrounded by people who love her and receives support and help from someone completely unexpected. Griffin has always felt drawn to Sam since the moment he saw her. The timing was just off so he has had to sit and care for her from the sidelines. After Sam's attack, he decided to be at her side at all times. 

The sassy, firecracker we met in Only for You , starts to come back and a huge part of the reason is Griffin. He makes her feel safe and loved; not to mention the fact that he helps get things working again in her nether regions. 

There are still threats in Sam's life that she has to deal with along with recovering from the attack. Threats being made on her life begin to appear, but Sam is stronger than ever and she's ready to fight.

"You are one of the few with the bravery to walk through the fire, let it burn you to ash, and rise again, changed but all the more beautiful for it."

The story is written in mainly Sam's POV, however we do get a few chapters from Griffin. And boy were some of them painful to read. He loves Sam so much and there were moments where his words were absolutely heartbreaking. He was frustrated with his situation of wanting Sam physically but knowing he needed to help her heal mentally.
I don't think I've ever been more envious of a fictional couple before. They're love for one another is so powerful. They have the complete package. In Only for You , Genna made me fall in love with Ev and Hunter. While I still love them with all my heart, they had to make room for Sam and Griffin. Holy smokes! My favorite fictional couple by far. 

"No one can understand the scars left on your soul, but you can't believe you are the only one who bears scars from you suffering."~Everleigh

Here I was thinking Genna Rulon couldn't possibly one-up herself after Only for You . WRONG! Pieces for You is another brilliantly written story from Genna. Jam-packed with emotion and heart; every word felt sincere, every moment stayed with me.
I will say it now, Genna Rulon is a force to be reckoned with. I'm so excited to see more from her.
