If ever there was a book that after the ending of book 1 I needed stat, this would be the one!!! Completely devastated at the cliffy with Six Feet Under would be a correct statement. So, when this one landed on my kindle, drop everything and forget the family…I had to know…I needed to know…
Picking up right where we left off with the ending of Six Feet Under, we jump on the roller-coaster ride of turmoil. This is a story that reads like I’m sitting right there watching everything unfold. So beautifully written that once you pull down the safety guard before the roller-coaster takes off, you can’t…you won’t…stop reading until the last page is turned.
Emotionally, you will need a box of tissue while reading this straight to the heart, I’m currently at a 9 falling in love with both characters!! Because we learn that while a 10 is not impossible to hit, 9 is always better.
Whitney Barbetti has certainly poured heart and soul into this excellently written story. It’s one that pulls all the feelings and sucks you in from the get go. You can tell by the writing, this book was not written in a week, month or year. It is a story that deals with many types of addiction and how a person(s) deals with the cards they are dealt.
This duet is not your typical run of the mill romance. I FELT every emotion and feeling as if it was my own. It was raw, gritty, painful and honest. I have not felt this strongly about a book, but just a few times in my life. I have read many amazing five star books by different authors. But this duet was a once in a lifetime kind of feeling for me. I know that my words will not be adequate enough, but I must try to make you understand how important and uplifting Mira's story really is.
"Loss is a phantom limb, an acknowledgement that something is absent from you but somehow still aches-a constant misery, reminding you of what you've lost. An amputee could walk around with a physical reminder to those around him of what he's lost, but an emotional absence is silent, lonely, deeply private-a loss mourned alone."
Pieces of Eight had a different tone than I was expecting from it. In SFU, we learn so much about Mira and her demons, the toll that it has taken on her to continue to fight for her sanity and sobriety. Would she have fought so hard, if Six had not been in her life to push her, to make her crave more from life? One of the many aspects that I loved about POE was that we get to see Mira and Six living their individual lives without each other. I think it was important as a reader to be able to see the growth of Mira as an individual person, without Six, just Mira. She needed to know that she could set goals for herself and actually achieve them. I wanted her to see herself for the fighter that she is, the loyal friend that she could become, and I wanted her to love herself more than anything. She learned to stop running from her demons, and discovered that she had to live with them. She found that she was stronger, emotionally, than she ever anticipated. And what an empowering feeling that would be, to discover all of this self worth about yourself, and realize that your pain and suffering was not in vain.
Six earned my respect and gratitude in this book. As I stated in my review for SFU, that he was an enigma, cloaked in mystery. I wanted to know more about him, I wanted to peel his layers back and unveil who he really is. Underneath that rough exterior, there is a polished man that shines, and he shines the brightest for Mira. The love that these two had for each other, was truly a mad kind of love. The angst and intensity was off the charts. The push and pull that they constantly feel towards each other is an age old mystery. I felt their love for each other to the depths of my soul. These books are so well crafted, that I actually felt as if I was a part of their inner circle. Watching them come together, fall apart, and then pick the pieces up one by one, and glue them back together. I urge you to give this duet a chance. It's not an easy kind of love,sometimes loving means hurting, but nothing in life worth having, ever comes easily.
"I need you.
You need me.
I love you.
You love me.
We'll never be perfect.
But we'll always be a we.
There are so many words to describe this love story. It was heartbreaking, honest, real and emotional. The experiences in Mira’s life were difficult to digest, but the sadness I carried for her throughout the years felt real. My heart was heavy and I admired Mira for putting one foot in front of the other day in and day out. As much as this story was about Mira, it was about Mira and Six finding their way to one another in the darkness. Mira was broken, but Six stuck by her side through all of their struggles. He was mysterious in his own right, but his heart was so full of love for this complex woman I was in awe of him. He wasn't perfect, but the connection he felt towards Mira was honest and true. He struggled as well, but was a light in Mira's life when she needed it the most. It may not have seemed like it at times, but he needed her too!
This story was about acceptance and forgiveness. We all struggle in life, but it’s how we handle those obstacles thrown at us that define who we are. Mira was so incredibly strong and resilient in her journey to better her life. Yes, she was difficult, demanding and sometimes downright infuriating. On the flip side, this was an adult woman that had to learn how to love, how to accept the fact that she was not the cause of all things bad. She broke my heart, but as I moved through her struggles I came to realize just how incredibly strong she was. I admired her. The uphill battle she endured to change her life was rough terrain and she continued to push through the pain.
My emotions were all over the spectrum with this story. I was frustrated, sad, heartbroken, angry. Yes, there are good, happy times for this unique couple. I simply loved being part of their relationship over a 13-year time frame. We needed that time with Mira and Six. Their journey together, as well as their time apart, was enlightening and full of promise. Whitney has done an excellent job of making you feel what these characters are going through. Not to mention, she throws in a few twists that you will NOT SEE COMING. I’m happy that I took time to read and experience this love story. It’s not like many others, but that’s more reason you should read about Mira and Six!
