Title: Pieces of Forever
Reviewed by: Mon
When Olivia Adams said “I do” and promised to love her high school sweetheart, Tyler Tate, forever, she didn’t expect forever to end so soon. After a tragic accident one year later, she is left to pick up the pieces of her shattered forever. Struggling to make it through each day without him, she tries to cling to the one dream she thought she had left, making it to the National Women’s Soccer League. When once again her world is turned upside down, she’s left to figure out who she is without Tyler and without soccer.
Casey Hunt was never supposed to be more than her athletic trainer, but when they find themselves neighbors, will he be the one that helps her find the faith and strength she needs to build her life again? And what will Olivia do when he begins to awaken feelings in her that she thought died with Tyler? She has to decide if she’s ready to open her heart back up and risk love again. But the secret Casey is keeping might be the thing that destroys her second chance at forever.

I was gifted this book by the Author in exchange for an honest review.
Warning.. Ugly Cry Book!! I try to avoid these books like the plague but so glad I read this one. Not only was it heartbreaking but it was heartwarming at the same time. This book is about a 2nd chance at love and learning to start over again when there is loss. Just when you think things are ok with the Olivia and Casey, the author throws a twist in that leaves you saying NO, NO, NO!
I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time letting go when it was over. This is the first book that I have read by this author and I would love to read more. Hopefully a Mel and Trent story?? Hint Hint!

Stephanie Hoffman McManus is a New Adult romance author who debuted her first series in Spring of 2014, but her love affair with books began at an early age. She consumed them from the moment she learned to read, loving nothing more than to get lost in the fictional worlds that came to life on the pages. Creating her own stories was something she always enjoyed but never pursued until she wrote Finding Ever After, her first novel.
She has many passions besides books, including drawing, painting, design, baking and cake decorating. Prior to the release of her first novel, she was running her own bakery and cake shop in the small town where she was born and raised and returned home to after moving away for college. Now she devotes most of her time to her eight year old son and their adventures in life, whether it be epic Nerf battles, ninja walks, zombie runs, Lego building or whatever crazy idea he comes up with. Becoming Mommy has been her greatest adventure, but becoming a self published indie author has been an incredible journey that has allowed her to grow and learn so much and meet some very incredible fellow book lovers, which has been her favorite part of the journey.
