What would happen if you woke up one morning in your comfy bed, found yourself decked out like you had been to a nightclub, you are stinking of smoke and booze, then realize that you have bruises and no memory of how you got them? Welcome to Trista's world! Pieces of One Part 1: The Dark Life Collection, is a marvelously written romantic suspense created by author extraordinaire SVC Ricketts. The storyline is twisted, unforeseen and convoluted to the point where the reader is unable to predict the outcome and left pondering the enormous gap between what is real and what is fantasy.

Trista Dividr is highly intelligent and preparing to attend Baylor where she hopes to obtain a degree in computer science. Her life has not been normal since the accident that killed her father and left her emotionally scarred. Her mom, brother, Jones and best friend Kitta help keep her grounded. Her intellect allows her to follow the escapades of her alter personality, Marvy. Marvy is the diabolical opposite of Trista. She enjoys partying hard and getting down and dirty. Her collection of clothes includes her beloved stilettos, miniscule dresses topped off with wild hair and make-up out to there, these are only a few of the differences between the two personalities. When Trista's car comes up missing her life is altered forever. The events begin a domino effect down a twisted pathway of new beginnings, altered awareness, developing maturity and life changing decisions.

Alexander (Alex) is part owner of a nightclub called The Rush, located in Keystone. Trista has no recollection of any sexual encounters, while Marvy has had many. When she first meets Alex, he mistakes her for Marvy and the chemistry flows between them.

** Received on behalf of the author for an honest review **

What would life be like being someone else?
What would life be like being more than someone else?
What if you were them?
Not just you, but them as well?

Welcome to Trista's life.

You see Trista is young, vibrant, studying, working a part-time job. Her best friend Kitta knows who she is. Trista knows who she is, but can't remember.

The only way Trista knows who she is, is by video tape.
Unexplained outings.
Unexplained spendings.
Unexplained meetings.
Unexplained calculus equations worked out.
Trista knows it's not her.
Trista knows it's her.

Her name.


Marvy is stunning, confident and simply beautiful. She's smart and sassy.

But why is she Trista?
What does she want?
Why does she only come out every so often?
What is her agenda?
Will Marvy ultimately ruin Trista?
Or is there more to Marvy's presence that Trista knows nothing about?

And what about the other one?
Who is she?
Why does she only come out on the rare occasion?
And why does Marvy know who she is, but Trista doesn't?

Pretty cryptic yeah?

Well the only way to find out exactly who Trista is, is to simply read Pieces Of One to find out.

We simply couldn't put it down. From the very first line, we were entranced. It's full of emotion. We laughed, we cried, we held our breath. It's full of twist and turns it kept us constantly guessing. The banter between the characters within this novel was simply brilliant.

Overall it's just an absolute not to be missed read.

One could easily confuse a reader when it comes to multiple personalities appearing in and out of the story, but SVC Ricketts handles it flawlessly. After a GoodReads review by JUDITH of the 2nd in the series, I knew this was a series I had to read. It was a pretty fast hook. Trista had some sort of trauma in her past, perhaps the car accident that took her father's life, or something to do with the death of her twin brother, but definitely something that caused her disorder. Her good friend Kitta figured it out after the car accident and the two have kept her secret, from Trista's brother Jones and her Mom, Mr. P and everyone else.

Trista is an overachiever. Not quite 18, she's already a sophomore in a local college and hopes to get accepted and transfer her junior year to Baylor. She can fix anything, using her talents to work at Mr. Ps fix it store. More recently she put her computer science skills to the test creating a jeweled ear cuff camera to record the adventures of her alter ego Marvy. Marvy is a handful, giving their virginity away, hitting the bars, drinking, doing drugs and lately getting herself in some hot water with some seriously dangerous characters. To find her car that Marvy came home without, Trista has to view the ear cam footage. If this is what being a voyeur is like, sign up good girl Trista, cause Marley visits not one, but two hotties at the Club. Trista goes to retrieve her car and finds herself feeling things she's never felt or touched after an encounter with hottie #1 Alex , or Xander as he prefers.

Hottie #2, Bryson, is a dangerous man, has dangerous friends, and a dangerously sexy body to boot. Both Xander and Bryson are mesmerized first by Marly, but upon discovering Trista, they want more. There is more of course, more layers to this gorgeous girl, more personalities than even Trista knows.

Getting ready to start the 2nd in the series!!
