I received a review copy
An alcoholic. A scarred man. A thief.
Harvey, a twenty-two-year-old high school drop-out arrives home, a brief stint in rehab behind him and ready to start his life again. Then he meets Beth and her innocence and her desire to have it all capture him completely.
A girl on the cusp of womanhood. Determined. A bright future.
Beth, a recent high school graduate among the top in her class, can’t wait to get to college and fulfill her dreams. Then she meets Harvey and with his mysterious past, he stirs feelings in her she can’t ignore.
The chemistry between them is unmistakable but Harvey doesn’t trust easily and refuses to divulge his past to Beth though she wants to be a part of his future.
The pieces of their lives lie broken all around them, but can Harvey put his life back together and win Beth over before she begins her new life without him? And can Beth find the strength to become the woman she wants to be without sacrificing her integrity?
I have also read Jay Walking and Caching In from Tracy Krimmer, and was looking forward to reading more from her. Pieces of It All is very different from the other two I’ve read, much deeper in content and honestly quite raw. We delve into a world of theft, alcoholism, abuse and so much more when it comes to Harvey, a painfully flawed character. On the complete flip-side is Beth, the classic good girl who falls for the bad boy summer after senior year. Intensely relatable, I was easily drawn into the story, and I think my favorite aspect was I didn’t find this at all predictable. I was constantly holding my breath, wondering where the next chapter would take Beth and Harvey. And just when I thought I could predict the end – I was very, very wrong. I am grateful I received a review copy, as I think this is a New Adult book not to miss.
