Blog Tour and Giveaway: Pieces of You by Cassia Leo

 The story that began in the USA Today bestseller RELENTLESS continues. Which team are you on?
 In Relentless, college student Claire Nixon and surfer Adam Parker each had a painful past too heavy to carry alone. Claire tried to push Adam away, but Adam's relentless pursuit of her heart and her secrets made her walls come crumbling down.
Though their hearts will never be whole again, Claire and Adam now know they are stronger together than they are apart.
But now Claire's attending college a hundred miles away from Adam. With their relationship already hanging by a thread, Adam is sent to Hawaii on business.
And rock star Chris Knight is back in Claire's life.
Chris wants his ex-girlfriend back and he knows just how to get her: only he has the power to mend the final missing piece of Claire's broken heart. Now Claire must choose between a long-distance relationship with Adam and a second chance at love, family, and home.
New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language, drug use, and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Our Review
5 Star Review by Heather

I have been anticipating this book for a couple months now. I was so excited to find out how the book ended and who Claire ended up with. I was sad to find out that this book was a bigger cliffhanger than Relentless, but also excited to get more Claire, Adam and Chris!
This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride.  One of my favorite types of books is love triangles.  I was team Adam going into this book and knew that Cassia Leo was going to have her work cut out for her to make me fall in love with Chris.  Although I did like Chris I did not fall in love with him the way I did Adam.  I am team Adam all the way.  I just hope that Claire feels the same way.
Claire is struggling with the decision of giving her and Chris' child up for adoption. She was doing it to give her child a better life and not make Chris struggle between being a rock star and a father.  Since her decision to let Chris go and live the life he has always wanted and giving up her child she takes up meditating to help cope with everything.  Since having Chris back in her life she is questioning her feelings with Adam.  Is Adam the guy who can give her a home?  Or is Chris the guy who has always been the one to give her a home?
Adam is a hot surfer. He has his own demons he is trying to fight. He wants Claire more than he has ever wanted anyone. He is struggling with Chris being back in the picture. He trusts Claire, but knows Chris is willing to do anything to get her back. Adam is hiding the fact that he is going to Hawaii for work for 8 weeks. He tells Claire last minute and that doesn't go well, but he is scared to be all the way across the country from her when Chris is right there for her.  He is afraid he will lose her to Chris if he leaves, but he doesn’t have a choice.  This is the last thing he has to do for his dad and he will be free.  Can Adam be enough for Claire while he is in Hawaii?  Will he be able to get past his own demons without pushing Claire away?  Can he prove to Claire that he can be her home?
Chris is a rocker. He has always wanted to play music.  His first paying gig was when he was sixteen. So a year ago when Claire told him to go to LA he did.  He decides to live it up and become a manwhore.  He never thought that Claire would fall in love with another guy so fast. He thought she would welcome him back with open arms.  He know regrets not getting in touch with her sooner.  If he had would she have given the baby up for adoption?  Would she have fallen in love with Adam?  Will she go with the relationship that is so familiar? Or will she follow her heart?
All I can say is this book left me wanting more Claire, Adam and Chris.  The journey that they all take in this book is very emotional.  It is a must that you read Reckless and then immediately read Pieces of You.  You will not be disappointed.  These books will definitely be on my top reads list of this year.  I can’t wait for book three so I can finally find out who she picks!
