Blog Tour & Giveaway: Falling to Pieces [Pieces 01] by Jamie Canosa!

Publication date: 16th April 2014
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4.5 stars
Synopsis: Suffering the bitter tongues of her alcoholic mother and cruel boyfriend, Jade struggles just to look at herself in the mirror. She hates her life, her insecurities, her ineptitudes, but most of all . . . Jade hates herself.

She wants nothing more than to disappear, and everyone seems happy to let her. Until Kiernan Parks moves back into town.

Jade’s been crushing on him ever since kindergarten, when his family moved away. But now he’s back, and looking better than ever.

Hiding is a way of life for Jade, but Kiernan insists on uncovering the real girl he’s sees trapped inside her. On drawing her out of her shell, and showing her that she is someone worthy of love.

Together, they fight back the darkness she’s living in. But when they finally step into the light, will the secret Kiernan’s been trying to keep buried destroy Jade, once and for all?

For some people, happy endings are a fairytale.

I always look forward to the next book from this author and I've read all but one of her books, but I have to say this book definitely packed the most punch with me! It was amazing and had a lot in it! Not only was it about a girl who was treated really badly be shown just how special she is, but it was also about how your life can change in the blink of an eye! The plot of this book was just amazing! It started out with a bad situation and then it ended really emotionally! Also, when I got quite a long way through the plot, there was a massive plot twist and I told myself that I wasn't going to cry, but by the end, I couldn't even read the ending from my tears lol! I was just a wreck! The plot was also written beautifully and was very emotional! As much as I loved the plot, the reason why I took this book down half a star was because it took me about a week to get through! I also felt like some scenes were dragged on a bit too long and the huge twist took quite a bit of the book to come into it, even though it played a massive part! The characters were amazing! Jade was the main character and my heart just completely went out to her! She was pulled down by the people who were supposed to make her feel loved and safe and it made her think that she was never good enough and she was a disappointment! Jade was anything but! She learned a lot in this book and she came so far! I was so happy that she learned how to embrace life and live it to the fullest! My heart again went out to Jade in this book at the end! I wanted to grab her in a hug and not let go of her because she had already been through so much! Kiernan was the love interest of Jade and I could see from the moment he was introduced in this book, just how far he would go to show Jade how beautiful and special she was! He sort of made it his main focus in this book! He wanted Jade to be happy and he wanted the best for her, which made me just adore him! Kiernan was a really special guy and the huge twist in this book made me want to shelter him and give him his full love story with Jade, grandkids and all! When I got to a certain point in this book, I sort of wondered how there could be a second book lol, and to be honest, I'm still sort of wondering what the author has planned for it lol! I'll definitely be reading it though! The ending of this book was just so sad and emotional, that I don't really know what's going to happen in the next book! I know that I'm going to need tissues though! Also, in this book a character really stuck out to me and I knew that he needed his own story! I'm really excited that there's going to be a novella about this character and I can't wait to read it! The cover for this book is stunning! I wasn't sure what the cover was going to look like, but it's absolutely stunning! I love it! Big thank you to Jamie for an ARC of Falling to Pieces and for having me on her Blog Tour!
