Reviews Picking Up the Pieces (Pieces, #2)

  • Stephanie Phillips (Stephanie's Book Reports)
    I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review. This is the conclusion story to Pieces of Perfect (POP). Elizabeth Hayley has done a great job formulating this story to get to the end of Lily, Max, & Adam's story. When we leave off in POP Lily is in an airplane headed to Europe after sabotaging the two sexual relationships she was a part of though neither man new about the other until it was too late. In Picking Up the Pieces it's time for ...

    5 star review of Picking Up the PiecesNever has a book with a love triangle wrecked me more than Pieces of Perfect. There was no closure, and it was all I thought about for weeks. So when I got an advance copy, I was more than willing to read- because, after all- she was going to pick between Max and Adam. Then I wouldn’t feel like I needed a paper bag to breathe into so much anymore. I would know where Lily stood. Do you know how difficult it ...

    2 starsThis novel..was a mess, seriously. I hate Lily, she's a whore. If she was given the chance to repeat the past, she would. She thought she might be in love with Max, but then, she's still dating Adam, whore!I love the ending, that's probably the only thing that I like..aside from the 1st few chapters in book 1 when Adam didn't exist.

    Very HOT scenes, but still several things that annoyed me with this book.(view spoiler)[*Lily still didn't seem to know who or what she wanted, and wasn't being true to herself.*For a majority of this book Max didn't fight for her and actually tell her how he felt.*Adam turned into a douche in this book, but Lily should've realised right near the beginning that he wasn't going to trust her agai Very HOT scenes, but still several things that ann...

    Aww I loved this story.
  • Katherine
    Good read... Kept you guessing. There was laughter, drama, love, heartbreak, heartwarming-everything that I could get in books that I love.
  • AngelinaT
    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the story of Lily, Max and Adam! Now, this review might come out a little confusing since I don't want to give anything away (and I was warned at the end of the book not to do so LOL). Anyway, I couldn't wait for this story to continue. I went in wanting the story to go one way (I had my favorite from book one) and then I panicked at first because it looked like maybe it wasn't going to happen. However, at the end everything turn...

    5 Star Perfect Endingok, So I am sooooo damn happy she ended up with who I thought from the get-go.... YAY! My only issue is I just wished this story had wrapped up quicker, it dragged way too long for me personally especially where it was so obvious who she was truly in love with, lol!!! But overall, I LOVED this mini-series:)
  • Julie B.
    4.5 stars. I would've given it a 5 had it not seem to drag on for so long. In the end, I was so glad she ended up with the one she did. I just wish we'd had a little more than 9% of the book and an epilogue to enjoy them together.
  • Shannon
    ***3.5 stars rounded up****- Ok so …Obviously I"m the odd man out here. This was NOT a bad story. It's just that the first one was SO VERY good…this just fell flat for me and left me a little bored. On a bright note..she did end up with the guy I had hope for since book one :).
  • Paula (Poll) Conway
    This was a brilliant book2 , so funny and romantic , the pages couldn't turn fast enough for me to see who got the HEA , what a love triangle , I was so happy with the ending !
  • Maria
    Well what can I say, I really enjoyed the first book, thought the second one started off well but fell flat somewhere along the line, Lilly is a spoiled brat, but loved her friends...
  • Shawna
    I was given an ARC.....I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars!! Elizabeth Haley did it once again! This book has it all. Amazingly HOT scenes, along with so much humor. It's a must read!!!!
  • Kierstin
    Love triangles are always hard. I was really hot and cold about Adam. He would be super great, then terrible. But that was probably the point so we started rooting for Max. Same with Lily. She was SUPER selfish. Much better in this book than in the first. And I obviously loved Max. He was always super real and honest. Can't say I am mad at the ending. So yeah.

    *This is book two in a series and you MUST read Pieces of Perfect first, since Picking Up the Pieces is a continuation of book one. Here is my review of Pieces of Perfect*Picking Up the Pieces picks up after Pieces of Perfect left us all breathless and in shock. Right off the bat I knew I was going to have a love/hate issue with Lily and her men, love triangle stress me out but this one is written so well, it is easy to forget you should be torn ...

    Here are just a few thoughts I had reading the first chapter of the book.I knew that I loved Max. How can you not. But then......UGH! This is not how you mend a broken heart. OK, time to go to page 3. I know I am bad but I had to get that off my mind.Lily, after choosing herself at the end of her last book she is back home from her long vacation and feels that she has got her self back. She feels that she understands why she made the choices that...

    I'll openly admit i've been impatiently waiting for this to be released and although i hated waiting, it was definitely worth it. As always with Elizabeth Hayley, the story, characters and editing are absolutely fantastic. Picking up the pieces starts nearly five months after Lilys love life went to hell, and we meet up again with Lily, Adam and Max, who have all definitely changed due to what happened. Following a phone call, and an unexpected m...
  • The Book Trollop
    4.5/5 stars This will probably be one of the worst reviews I will ever do. Not because I didn't like the book but because I don't want to be one of those assholes that unintentionally give something away and then all you crazies know who Lilly ended up being with in the end. Of course the journey to discover who she wanted wasn't an easy task, especially since we got all three point of views this time in the story. So I had to experience all the ...

  • The Book and The Harlot's Blog
    Picking up the Pieces is the sequel to Pieces of Perfect and what a great sequel it is. POP was one of my favorite books of last year and Picking up the Pieces is a favorite this year. Lily comes back stronger than ever in this installment. She was broken in the first installment and now she’s working on mending herself, plus the bridges she’s burned. But, with the paths she needs to mend will she end up losing herself again in the process? O...

    Still torn between two lovers, Lily has taken the summer off, traveling to various museums in Europe and ostensibly to re-examine her life. In particular, she is trying to assess her total mess-up of her love life, which cost her a good friend in Max and her love in Adam, and make changes (act more grownup) in this follow-up novel to Pieces of Perfect. Told from the perspective of each of the main characters (Lily, Max, and Adam), the reader is i...
  • Marissa
    We join Lily, Max, and Adam several months after the big blow up from Pieces of Perfect, seeing how they are all trying to recuperate and attempt to go back to their previous lives. It becomes quite clear how easily someone can put on a front, be stuck in the past and hurting so much, you can’t help feel so sad for all three characters. All it takes is a Mom . . . those all-knowing moms, to push someone to change, and to get Lily to make first ...
  • Megan ~The Never Ending Book Basket
    Picking Up the Pieces starts off about 5 months after the events after Pieces of Perfect. Lily has gone through some serious ups and downs, and now she is ready to face the proverbial music. She's changed in a lot of ways, but her character still shines through. This book is told in all 3 characters perspectives, which I LOVED. I so enjoyed getting the chance to step into each of their minds throughout the book, and the changing perspectives kept...

    I have been waiting for this book for what seems like FOREVER! Finally, we get to know each of Lily, Adam and Max’s fates. Believe me when I say you will NOT be disappointed. This book is so fantastic, I'd give it 100 stars if I could.When we last left Lily she was juggling two men, one was the perfect guy you take home to mom, Adam. The other was the hot guy you keep locked up in your bedroom, Max. When both men finally found out about each ot...

    5 Stars It has been delicious waiting for this, eek!! So exciting waiting to find out who she ends up with!!I loved this so much. Lily is back from her trip and back to school, although we don't get too much from school, but what we did; omfg.. the new teacher!!! Fabulous having Adam & Max's pov. I was hysterical at Adam & the Halloween costume for Eva! So cute to see, but he did get on my tats a bit. Maybe as I am team Max..... ;-0 i don't know ...
