Sunny Shelly’s Review: Piece Of My Heart, by Nicole Jacquelyn

From the author of Unbreak My Heart comes a heart-wrenching story about a young married couple’s struggle to find their way back to each other after an unbearable loss threatens to tear them apart. Nicole Jacquelyn delivers a novel that will break your heart…in all the best ways.
Alex Evans is cool. Collected. Charismatic as hell. But when he meets Sarai Levy, all that chill goes right out the door. An Israeli graduate student, Sarai’s far too busy with school to date. But she gives Alex a chance anyway, and after a few whirlwind months, they’re getting married. They’ve heard all the reasons why it’s too soon, but Alex and Sarai are madly in love and determined to make it work . . . until a devastating tragedy strikes and their perfect world comes crashing down.
Sarai, who always has a plan, suddenly has no blueprint for handling a staggering loss. As she pulls away from Alex and withdraws from her life, he’s struggling to be the man she needs. Their relationship is fraying at the seams, and if Alex and Sarai don’t find a way to trust each other with their most painful truths, their heartache could shatter their fairytale romance.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Piece Of My Heart is a drama-filled romance that will make you cry, but make you smile at the end. It’s love at first sight for Alex, but Sarai makes him work for it, and things don’t come easy for them.

They love each other immensely, but the relationship puts Sarai at odds with her aunt and uncle (who raised her) since Alex is not Jewish. A tragic event puts another wedge in their relationship as regret, blame and depression takes hold. Ultimately, Alex and Sarai are able to work their way back to one another, but it’s a long and winding road.

Unbreak My Heart (Fostering Live #1) is one of my favorite books, a story that I reread often. I haven’t read the others in this series yet, but the bar was set pretty high for Alex and Sarai. While I didn’t absolutely love it the way that I did Unbreak, it is still a fantastic story with rich characters, real-life situations and the hard work it takes to make a marriage work. And I loved getting to catch up with the other family members.

I received an advanced copy via Netgalley and the publisher and voluntarily left a review.
