The Pieces of You and Me, Rachel Burton

The Pieces of You and Me, Rachel Burton

The Pieces of You and Me: The new heartfelt and uplifting love story for 2019 from bestselling author Rachel Burton by [Burton, Rachel]

Ah Darn, women’s fiction again – and why assume men don’t want romance 😦

I loved Rachel’s The Things We Need To say, and really expected to love this one too. I didn’t. though its beautifully written and tackles some tough subjects. As someone who has CFS myself I understood how ill Jess felt at times, and how others simply can’t understand that overpowering fatigue.

I loved Jess and Rupert as people, and indeed there were some great secondary characters. It was just the main thrust of the story, the break up and getting together, that didn’t work for me.
I didn’t really understand why they parted, and felt when they resumed their relationship they still didn’t understand themselves what went wrong. I felt like I had all these questions about it, and I was waiting all through for answers but never really got them. In contrast to TTWNTS I felt there wasn’t any real focus for me in this story, that it just didn’t have anything I could grip, any hopes of solutions, just unanswered questions. Without those answers I wasn’t sure if the same thing would happen all over again to them.
Relationships take work, and somehow I felt for these two to have a permanent HEA they needed to do so much more.

Stars: Three, a well written story, but it just didn’t work for me. Could be just what you want though, reading is incredibly subjective.
