THIS IS THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK! HERE IS MY REVIEW:

                           
                                         Piece by Piece by: Teodora Kostova
                                                      reviewed by: Becky

Sometimes to reach the surface you have to fall to the bottom first... 

For the past ten years, Riley Davis’ life has been overshadowed by the tragic death of his partner. Fluctuating between alcohol induced daze, clinical depression and throwing all his time and effort into his business, Riley doesn’t believe, or even hope, that his life will ever be worth living again. 

Until Sonnie Frye drops by his haberdashery shop, changing his life forever. 

Sonnie is a man who likes getting what he wants, when he wants it. He’s worked hard to establish himself as Queen Victoria theatre’s chief costume designer, collecting multiple awards – and high-profile clients – along the way. Sonnie is used to putting his needs, goals and desires first, unwilling to compromise his own happiness for anybody else. 
Until he meets a handsome shop owner whose eyes are so sad that they immediately tug at Sonnie's heartstrings. 

Seeing something he wants, Sonnie is determined to get under Riley's skin and, preferably, into his bed. But he soon discovers the task is not that easy. For the first time in his life, Sonnie may need to put someone else’s needs before his own, and re-evaluate what really matters in life. 

Will the two men stand side by side to overcome their differences, and everything else life throws at them? Or will it all become too much to bear, shaking them to their very core, destroying everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve? 





This book is a beautiful read, but it is hard in the sense that the emotions and pain that these men feel is so real and well written that you can't help but feel it too! 

Riley has been a shell of a man since his partner of several years was killed, and even though it has been 10 years the pain is still raw, and Riley just hurts every day, he is certain he will never feel again what he felt for Richard, then he meets Sonnie.

Sonnie has always looked out for himself, and no one else really mattered enough to consider, but when he meets Riley, he learns what it means to really love someone, he also realizes that for Riley to truly be his, he will have to let Richard go. The transformation in Sonnie is lovely and brilliant!

You will hurt for both of these men, who in their own ways are each dealing with their pain due to a man long dead. Loving and letting go is hard enough, but is learning to love like that again too much for Riley?

Please read this story, it will move you and teach you lessons you had no idea you needed to learn! Thanks Teodora, for not just a beautiful book, but a beautiful lesson about life and letting go!

HERE IS AN EXCERPT FOR YOU, (GRAB THE TISSUES)

Sonnie traced the rough lines on Riley's wrist, feeling the 
disfigured skin.

“How many times?” he asked softly.

Riley didn’t reply for a long time. He kept caressing Sonnie's 

shoulder.

“Two.”

Sonnie closed his eyes, willing himself to calm down. He 

wanted to scream, and hit, and kick until all the rage inside 

him leaked out. But he remained still, focused on his 

breathing and counted to twenty. 

His eyes filled with tears he hated. He hated feeling this 

impotent, this helpless to do anything about Riley's pain.

“Promise me you’ll never do it again,” he finally managed to 

say.

Riley didn't. He kept holding Sonnie but no words came out 

of his mouth.

Lifting his head off Riley's chest, Sonnie looked into his blue 

eyes. They were shining with unshed tears, gleaming like 

drops of rain in the soft light.

“Promise me.”


“I can’t.”


NOW FOR AN AUTHOR BIO FOLLOWED BY THE TEASER PIC I PROMISED :)

"Hi, my name is Teodora and I live in London with my husband and my son. I've been writing ever since I can remember, but it became my full time job in 2010 when I decided that everything else I've tried bores me to death and I have to do what I've always wanted to do, but never had to guts to fully embrace. I've been a journalist, an editor, a personal assistant and an interior designer among other things, but as soon as the novelty of the new, exciting job wears off, I always go back to writing. Being twitchy, impatient, loud and hasty are not qualities that help a writer, because I have to sit alone, preferably still, and write for most of the day, but I absolutely love it. It's the only time that I'm truly at peace and the only thing I can do for more than ten minutes at a time - my son has a bigger attention span than me.</span><br />
<span style="background-color: white; font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; text-align: start;">When I'm procrastinating, I like to go to the gym, cook Italian meals (and eat them), read, listen to rock music, watch indie movies and True Blood re-runs. Or, in the worst case scenario, get beaten at every Nintendo Wii game by a very inventive kid."
