Three years ago she was left in pieces . . .
Most college freshmen love the newfound freedom of living on campus, but none of them craves it like Beth Caplan. One ill-fated night when she was fifteen left her locked in a posh prison of private tutors. It's for the best, everyone said, and maybe it was. But after years of hard work and healing, the one person who never thought of her as broken could be the one to break her all over again. And Beth can't seem to stay away now any more than she could all those years ago.
As soon as David March learned his best friend's little sister was enrolling at his school, he promised to look after her, and promised himself he'd keep a safe distance. But the sweet little girl he'd grown up with has transformed into a gorgeous young woman, and she's attracting attention from people she shouldn't-like the ex who nearly destroyed her and a strange new student with a disturbing habit of showing up wherever Beth goes. But for David, the most troubling discovery is realizing that he doesn't just want Beth to be safe. He wants her to be his.
Amazingly Angsty Story!
This book was everything I had hoped it would be and more. Being familiar with these characters from the previous book in this series, I couldn't wait to see what they story was all about. It was completely suspenseful and romantic! A story of teenagers who had longed for one another but it had never been the right time. A story of a girl who had been through so much yet picked herself up and fought for her independence and the guy who would do anything to protect her. I just adored Beth and David. I want moooooooore of them. Having a huge book hangover right now. So beautifully written.
Wow, all the feels with this one. I was thoroughly hooked from the very beginning. This is my first book by Danielle Pearl and definitely won't be my last. She has a way with words and it was very well written. I love a brothers best friend/friends to lovers trope so this book was right up my alley. The story flowed wonderfully. It provided everything that I wanted in a NA storyline and kept me flipping through from beginning to end. In Pieces is filled with angst, a bit of suspense, emotional read, but also such a beautiful romance story.
Overall, I enjoyed the story. Ms. Pearl hit it out of the ballpark with this one. I highly recommend it.

TOP READ OF 2017
It's stories like this that are the reason I fell in love with new adult romance in the first place. It isn't just a college romance, it isn't just a brother's-best-friend story. In Pieces is just more. It's a commentary on metal illness, survival and strength, it's a literary reflection of today's campus life, a statement on sexual assault and stalking, and on second chances, and taking chances. In Pieces is hot and sexy, sweet and emotional, but most of all, full of angst. Readers will feel every ounce of emotion through the flashback chapters and today, as Beth and David navigate their way through life, and to each other. Don't read reviews that will spoil the plot, just go in blind. Trust me. You won't regret it!
