Title: Fragile Pieces
Author: Lilian Harris
Publication Date: June 1st, 2021
Lilian Harris has done it again with this second chance, close proximity romance that had me unable to put the book down! Gabe and Mia were young lovers who were close to marriage and starting a family together, but Mia (also the daughter of a man in the military) started to embrace her fears of losing Gabe while he was on tour. She made the heart breaking choice to end things with Gabe after he came home with some pretty serious injuries. That breakup was the most painful regret of Mia’s life. But she hid even more from Gabe.
Six years later and they’re forced back together. Mia took a job as Gabe’s assistant because she desperately needed the money and to talk to Gabe about the secret she’s been keeping from him for too long. These two characters have an inordinate amount of love and passion that seethes through the anger that permeates their relationship. With lots of their past to overcome, it’s really difficult to tell throughout this entire book whether they will be able to find a way back to each other.
Harris does a fantastic job of tying these two together in one of those soulmate-esque ways and I found myself rooting for them on every page. Even when the hidden truths have you cringing at times. This full length novel with have you remembering what the core of love is about and enjoying the very hot heat levels that trail throughout this one. Gabe has a little bit of a domineering side which was really fun to read in this context and Mia just melts with his actions and words.
If you’re a fan of second chance and close proximity, this heavy heat romance is for you!
