Collecting The Pieces by L.A. Fiore

At fifteen I fell in love. His name was Jake Stephens and he took the abandoned, lonely girl I had been and made me whole. His love was a pure and unconditional love that made every day better than the last…a fairy tale of my very own.

But this story isn’t about Jake. It’s about Abel Madden; the man I meet after the fairy tale goes to hell. A cocky, arrogant man who says what he wants, does as he pleases, and makes no excuses for it. He irritates me—downright pisses me off at times—but he also brings me back to life.

My name is Sidney Ellis and this is my story of finding love twice—the first when I needed it most and the second when I never saw it coming.

Let me start by saying I loved this book! I was not sure what I was getting into from the synopsis. When Sydney Ellis says she has been in love twice in her life, I thought "Oh No! Something big happens and am I going to survive what ever that is?" I survived, but it was emotional. This book is emotional! From beginning to end. L.A.Fiore wrote a beautiful story out of not so beautiful happenings. I was captivated from the beginning. I was in love with her first love, Jake. He showed her she was worthy of being loved at a young age. Helped her dreams come true and supported her love of animals and to be a Veterinarian. Every thing you could want in a prince charming.

But fairy tales are not real and sometimes real life is not what you expected. Through it all she had her best friend Rylee to support her. Through the most deviating news of her life, Rylee helped her continue her dream of Vet school. When they decided a fresh start was what they needed they moved together to Wyoming. New lives, new vet practice and new memories. Rylee convinced her it was time to move on and start dating again. Get out of her comfort zone and start living life again.

When an unexpected encounter in a coffee shop leads to a magnetic attraction to a sexy roughneck biker, Sydney will do everything she can to stay away from his filthy mouth and bad boy attitude. But she can't fight the attraction to this man that is the opposite of everything she thought she wanted. 

In addition to the plot twists and mystery, Fiore delivers a strong, intelligent, never back down Heroine.  And a hard as nails alpha bad boy with a heart full of love. I absolutely fell in love with these two and the journey to healing through tragedy.  The lead as well as supporting characters are all well written and add so much to the story. I could not get enough of this love story. This book is filled with the perfect amount of heart break, tears, love and laughter. You will not be disappointed.
