Pieces of You and Me (Erin Fletcher)


Five years.  

That’s how long I’ve been gone. Since I left my best friend — the girl I loved — behind.

Five seconds. 

That’s how long it takes to realize I am completely, utterly, screwed. Because now that I’m back, my childhood crush has turned into so much more. 

Rylee has changed. We both have. And now I’m drawn to her in a completely different way. To her smile. Her touch. To reliving old memories and making new ones. To the happiness she’s always given me that I haven’t felt since I left. 

But her friends are hell-bent on keeping us apart. My dad is one drink away from destroying both of our lives, and maybe I am, too. It’s only a matter of time before I have to leave again, and there’s nothing I can do to stop it. I never get a choice. 

The one choice I can make? Stay away from Rylee. Because if I don’t, I’ll break her heart—and mine—all over again.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains references to drinking, addiction, and just the right amount of angst. You’ll want to save this tortured hero, while at the same time, not want to change a single thing about him!

Guess what guys?! Yep, that’s right! This was another buddy read with Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much 😀 . Check out her blog in the next few days to read her take on this book.

Remember a couple of days ago when I said that Entangled Crush never disappointed me? Oh well… this book was a bit of a let down. 😦

The writing was simple and easy, but not exciting in the least. I also found some problems with the person used and lack of consistency, because most of the book was on the first person, but there were some slips into 3rd person.

The main problem for me was that I didn’t like the main characters at all. I’m a huge fan of BFFs to lovers romance, but this story lacked both the friendship and the romance. Rylee was just so bland and weird… I hated that she kept things from her friends for fear of being judged, and that she changed to adapt her new friends so she stopped enjoying things that were important to her once, and honestly, how does someone blame a 12 yo kid for something as moving?! And Chase? He could have been great, but he just wasn’t! He had issues, and while I kind of understood some of those issues, it wasn’t developed enough. I thought that he should have had some BIG ISSUE behind his behaviour… but no.

The lack of development in the characters and in the storyline, made this book not enjoyable for me. The side characters didn’t help the case at all, being “overprotective” and and way too judgmental. I also felt that some things ended up unresolved…

Ultimatly the whole book feel a bit flat for me =/ , I wish it had had some more development.
