• Though Pieces For You is a part of the For You Series, the book can be read as a stand alone.


He smelled so damn good, clean with a hint of masculine sweat, a temptation I couldn’t resist.  Beyond my control, my tongue darted out of my mouth and covertly tasted the section of chest exposed above his tank.  Oh God, he tasted even better than he smelled, like a chocolate-covered pretzel—sweet, salty, and addictive.

“Did you just…lick me?” he asked, sounding both shocked and amused.

“I have no idea what you’re talking about.

“You licked me.  I felt it,” he accused, but I noticed he wasn’t complaining.

“Your imagination is running wild because of all the workout endorphins.”

“It wasn’t a complaint.  In fact, you’re welcome to have another taste.”

“Fine…I licked you.  But it was an involuntary reflex—hot guy, exposed chest…you know how it is.”

“Mmm,” he replied, his eyes darkening with lust.  “I am familiar with the temptation, but it’s not a hot guy who’s testing my self-control…it’s a petite, auburn-haired vixen.


(If you haven’t read Only For You, I recommend you read it first.  This is Sam and Griffin’s story and begins where Only For you left off.)

Hands down the BEST part of this book is Griffin!  I loved him in Only For You, but fell deeply, madly in love this time around.  Sam is picking up the pieces after the horrific event she survived.  She needs people to support her and finds more than that in Griffin.  Griffin is there to help her move on and more importantly HEAL.  

Genna couldn’t have written a more perfect hero.  You don’t fall in love with Griffin because he’s an uber controlling alpha male in a 3 piece suit with issues stemming from childhood.  No, he’s a normal guy with a heart of gold that just overflows with the desire to protect Sam.  And, oh yeah, he just happens to be HOT, smart, and ripped.  There’s just so much to love about him.  Griffin doesn’t see Sam as a victim, he sees her as the girl he’s wanted since the first time he laid eyes on her over a year ago when she walked into the bar.  Griffin is more than willing to be patient.  He doesn’t push her in the least and no amount of time is too long for him to wait for Sam to be ready.  Griffin will seriously awe you with his ability to make Sam feel safe.  He’s a great listener and the advice he gives rivals that of any shrink.  But, Griffin isn’t without faults; and, he’s afraid of what Sam might do once she discovers what they are. 

 Genna takes a difficult and sensitive subject and does it justice.  I love that she doesn’t portray Sam as a helpless victim.  Yes, she had insecurities and rightfully so, but she never had a pity party in her honor.  She was strong yet vulnerable, open yet cautious.    

Pieces For You had me crying, cheering, breathless, fuming, relieved, and laughing.  I have to say I loved Griffin and Sam’s story.  It’s emotional, difficult, and sweet.  I cannot wait of the next book in the series, Temper For You, which focuses on Meg who we meet in Pieces For You.
