Product description

About the Author

Jacquie resides in sunny Brisbane with her husband and two sons. Numbers and practicality are a way of life for Jacquie as she works as an accountant by day. So it's no wonder, for sanity's sake, she balances this banality with words, characters and imagination in all other possible moments. Jacquie is an author of a number of novels and writes contemporary women's fiction that is emotionally driven and possesses unique themes beyond the constraints of the physical universe. She strives to offer romance, but with complexity; spirituality, without the religion. Her novels express a purpose and offer subtle messages about life, the spirit and, of course, love.

Pieces Of Me,  Jacquie Underdown

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance,

 I liked the sound of this and is was a sweet novel, a good story but nothing that lifted it into a great one for me.

I liked Hannah, and admired her taking charge of herself after what had happened to her. that must have taken a lot of courage, and its something that happens to many, many people :-( Bear was a great character too and I liked him. He’d been stuck in Mercy Island looking after his sister, and now finally was going to be able to move, to get away, to live his dreams.
 I just didn’t feel the tension, the drama, the sizzle between Bear and Hannah I wanted though.  There were moments of course, but they felt very gentle, very subdued and seemed to be over soon. Then Bear, wanting to leave but faced with losing Hannah if he does of course. Its the stuff of romance, the choice, the do I or don’t I conundrum...and yet it didn’t feel like a big decision, I didn’t feel his confusion, or that Hannah would be devastated if he did go.

Its a decent, well written read, but for me I need angst, drama, tensions, and those were here but on a very muted level. There are readers who want exactly that though, so it’ll be a five star book for them, just not one for me.  

Stars: Three, a good read but without the feelings of potential loss and dramatics I needed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick, cute read. 28 April 2016
By Ashley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a very cute read. I was surprised by the seriousness of a few of the issues that came up in the book; I wasn't expecting the depth that there was to these characters and their stories. That said, I was expecting a bit of a climax and there really wasn't one to be found. I thought it was a bit all over the place in that sense. The synopsis definitely does not do this book justice, and there is much more to it than you would expect.

At the start of the book, Hannah's grandmother has passed away and Hannah has moved into her island home. A storm causes a bit of damage to the house shortly after Hannah's move. Bear helps her make some repairs and the two of them begin to develop a friendship/flirtation. Hannah has come to Mercy Island to escape from her life and Bear wishes to escape Mercy Island once and for all.

I appreciated the courage and independence of Hannah. She escaped a very difficult situation, one from which many women find it impossible to escape, and is thriving on her own in her new life. I thought it was cute how she was able to learn so much about her grandmother that she didn't know previously, that was handled very creatively. I also loved how Hannah was able to turn her grandmother's opportunity for freedom into her own opportunity for freedom via her first novel. I admired her journey to self-discovery and her decision to take her life and future into her own hands. I did think the situation with Alistair was resolved a bit too quickly and I don't know that it was believable that he would have simply given up after all of the time spent with her under his thumb. I was anticipating a possibly violent climax courtesy of that storyline, which obviously did not happen.

Bear was adorable. He's overcome so much and had such an unfathomably difficult upbringing. I respected the man that he became. His relationship with his sister was utterly adorable and made him a much more complex character and man. The resolution to his story was obviously predictable, but I don't think that made it any less satisfying to read. I was genuinely happy that all of these characters were able to have the happy ending that they each deserved.

This was a quick, cute read. There wasn't a ton of depth to it, and I did think the pacing and plot itself were a bit all over the place at times. There also was not really a climax in the story to speak of, which I wish had been handled a bit differently. Those small issues did not significantly impact my impression. I would recommend this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fluttering Hearts Review 25 Jan. 2016
By Peyton @A Bookish Mess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was such a refreshing story! It's a romance novel, but it's also chalked full of self-discovery and overcoming the odds to become the person YOU see when you look in the mirror!

The book begins kind of sad, with the passing of Hannah's grandmother. The family history there isn't exactly cookie cutter, but the love between the two was real, even though so much time had passed from the last time they communicated. When Bear literally comes to Hannah's rescue - twice - it starts the beginning of the friendship between the two. With the possibility of it growing into more than that - the fact that Hannah is on Mercy Island to start over and make a life for herself and Bear is chomping at the bits to leave as soon as he can - threatens to end anything before it can even get started.

Hannah took my breath away at times. The strength she possess in everything she puts her mind to is amazing. She was able to get out of a very difficult situation that many women have faced before, and she was able to turn it around and build something for herself. Something that she is proud of. The connection between Hannah and her grandmother still lives on and I adored the fact that she could take something from her grandmother and use it as a tool in her own self-discovery.

Bear was easy to like! With his charm and wit, you could not help but root for him. Ever the gentlemen, he could be the alpha when the times called for it, but it was his loving and softer side that really did me in. Also, the relationship he has with his sister - if I wasn't sold before, I was when this came into play.

For my own personal needs when it comes to novels, I felt like there could have been a bit more.. drama! Maybe throw in some tension.. a little bit of angst! The climax could have been built just a little bit bigger to give it that special umpth! I look for in the novels I pick. One example would be the issues with Alistair. With all the information we were given, I felt like that was a quick resolution. I was expecting it to turn into something a little more suspenseful and page-turning given all that we know about him and the kind of man he is. Overall, this novel was well written and a pretty good read. I would recommend it to romance lovers out there.
4.0 out of 5 stars Then the friendship grew to love but Hannah wanted to stay on the island and ... 9 Jun. 2016
By Angel Hatfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Hannah’s grandmother passed away and Hannah has moved to her island home to start over. Then there was a big storm and bear offered to help Hannah fix the damage that was done by the storm.Then Bear and Hannah begin a friendship with a little flirting shot in. But Bear looks at Mercy Island as a prison and all he wants to do is escape it. Alistair was Hannah’s ex and that is why she wants a new beginning as he had been abusive as well as controlling. Bear had a very difficult upbringing . Bear tried to be there for Hannah at her hardest times. He knew what she was going through. Then the friendship grew to love but Hannah wanted to stay on the island and Bear wanted to go…..
This was a very good story although at times i felt the plot was just all over the place. Hannah is a very strong woman to leave Alistair go and leave him for the island but she did it and was happier for it. Bear was also a strong man to overcome his past and look to a happy future. So story is good, characters are great especially Bear and Hannah and all the ins and outs they go through. I recommend.
I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
