Falling to Pieces by Jamie Canosa Blog Tour {Review + Giveaway}

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.




Falling to pieces is the perfect name for this book because that’s exactly what happened to me after reading it. I’m a blubbering mess and I. Just. Can’t. Words and thoughts have left me. I now have an empty space in my heart, but if this book taught me anything it’s to have hope and to love without abandon. Falling to pieces is a book that makes you are glad you read, but sad that you finished it. The way the book ended was bittersweet and I need the next one like pronto! Jade has come a long way from the beginning of the book. Kiernan taught her that she needs to live life not just exist in it. Nothing in life is ever easy and the things you do work for, you appreciate it more.

I think the next book is going to be just as heartbreaking as this one and I just hope Jade can keep it together. Cal, Kiernan’s brother is the rock in this book, He keeps everyone from falling apart and if they do he picks them up. He is so strong for his family and I adore him.

Jade has not had an easy life, with a drunken mother and a dad that’s never been in her life. She was just living day by day letting people put her down and believing every word they said. It’s not easy getting out of a place where you believe you belong, but with a little help from a hot guy maybe she can climb out of the abyss.

Kiernan is just full of life and doesn’t want to waste a minute on regret. He teaches Jade that she is beautiful the way she is and helps her stand up for herself. He gets her to enjoy what she loves to do and encourages her. He just lives life to its fullest and wants to bring Jade along for the ride. Kiernan is the perfect guy! <3 <3 *sobs*

Overall: Pain, grief, love, hope, are a few words that entered my mind when I finished this book. Falling to pieces is painstakingly good and heart wrenching to the core. Be prepared to be floored with the awesomeness that is Jamie Canosa. She knows how to tell a story and knows just what to write to get us to fall to pieces.
