The Smallest Part by Amy Harmon

The Smallest Part

“In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” - Unknown It was a big lie. The biggest lie she’d ever told. It reverberated through her head as she said it, ringing eerily, and the girl behind her eyes—the girl who knew the truth—screamed, and her scream echoed along with the lie. “Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mea...

    *Spoilers* *Unpopular Opinion*The thing is, I like Amy Harmon and I'm not averse to messy love stories. After all, isn't real life messier? What I don't like, however, is the conflation of the varying and discordant themes within this book. Thus, I was overwhelmed. Paranormal? Second-chance love? Pseudo love triangle?Harmon further layered the main themes with issues relating to morality, loyalty, friendship, and mental illness. On the one hand, ...

    5 stars! Amy Harmon has done it again. She’s woven together a complex, heartbreaking, and uplifting story that I couldn’t put down. The Smallest Part was on the angsty side for Harmon, it was also a bit steamier than what she usually writes, and I couldn’t get enough. This book captivated me from the first page and never let go. It’s a story of friendship, of family, of heartache, loss, and of love. This is the tale of the girl who didn...

    ”We’re more than just the sum of our parts.” Have you ever read a book that has MOVED YOU SO MUCH that your heart and soul are still stuck in the story? Here I sit with tears still inked in my eyes as I try to recover from the explosion of Amy Harmon’s heartfelt words. From the moment I began THE SMALLEST PART, my heart was stripped bare—both shattering and soaring—as this story held my heart in its hands. The Smallest Part is an UNF...

    “Sometimes it’s the smallest part that steals the show.” This isn't just a story about the girl who didn't get the boy. It's a story about family, friendship, love and loss. “Our friends shape the course of our lives. You have to choose them very carefully.” “Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mean . . . I know you love him. You’ve been friends forever. We all have. But are you in love with him?” If it had b...

    “Just because it’s meant to be, doesn’t mean it’s meant to be right now.” The Smallest part was such a unique and emotional read that tells the angst filled story of 3 best friends Noah, Mercedes, and Cora. It’s a book about loving and losing and loving again.I don’t want to say much on the plot, because it feels like one small detail can spoil the entire book. But I’ve been asked multiple times if this story is a love triangle....

    6 “There is Nothing Better Than This” Stars! “Life wasn’t about getting what you deserved. It was about enduring what you didn’t and not letting it destroy you.” I’ve been sitting on this review for a couple days because I don’t know what to say. This book was an experience that I’m still trying to process and recover from. It was so intense, so gut-wrenching, so heart stopping that I don’t know how to get over it. Amy Harmon ...

    WOW! I loved this book. Brilliant, extraordinary, heart touching … those are just a few words to describe The Smallest Part and yet there are still so much more that I could use to describe this magnificence story and still not do it justice. Ms. Harmon reached through the pages and grabbed my heart and kept it long after the story was done. "In the end, only three things matter: Who He is. Who you are, who your friends are." As I sat down and ...

    3 StarsOverall Opinion: I'm not quite sure what I expecting with this one, but that wasn't it! Not to say that it was a big disappointment or anything -- just different from what I was expecting. I completely wasn't expecting the PNR aspects it has in it! This book has one of the mcs in The Law of Moses in it as one of Noah's patients. While I haven't read that book, I caught on right away with what the author was doing. I'm slowly easing myself ...

    After many books by Amy Harmon, one thing is crystal clear, she has a way with words. Her words enchant, thrill and evoke feelings that refuse to be ignored. She digs deep, emotionally and personally. The Smallest Part was thought provoking, emotionally heart-wrenching and beautiful.After reading the blurb I was immediately fascinated and intrigued. “In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefu...

    This may be an ARC given by the author it has no influence whatsoever in my always honest opinion. 4,5 stars Once again Amy portrayed ordinary persons that could be your neighbors in an extraordinary light.She does not write about superheroes saving the world in epic ways. She writes about small people being quietly extraordinary. In a lifelong silent, constant and discreet support.   It's a daunting review to write as this book had another "...

    “Sometimes it’s the smallest part that steals the show.” It doesn’t fail, every time I read an Amy Harmon book, I’m rendered speechless. I don’t know what to think, I don’t know what to do, I don’t know what to say… Her writing is simply magnificent. Her ability to tell stories is like no other. And this book, this book, man, is just amazing.   “They moved silently in each other’s orbits, solitary planets in a lonely gala...

    "You three are all tangled up like . . . like a ball of string, or some shit. I can’t say I understand it. But I felt it.” Like The Law of Moses and The Song of David, The Smallest Part seems to defy labels. The unforgettable story of best friends Noah Andelin, Mercedes Lopez and Cora McKinney is so many things. It's a friends to lovers romance surrounding a single dad and his best friend. It's a tragic story of loss. It's a testament to frie...
  • ♥ Jx PinkLady Reviews ♥
    The Smallest Part is a standalone friend to lovers’ romance with a dash of the forbidden and lots of love. It toggles between the past and present time frame with a third person penmanship that slowly and certainly builds the layers of the narrative and drew me into a story that illustrates the perspective of both the male and female protagonist. It’s about friendship, family, loving, holding on and letting go. It delves into the unknown and ...

    Hard for me to rate this one!I'm going to go with a 3.5 - because although I absolutely loved it, I was unhappy about the way certain things panned out.

    Compelling, passionate and heart-wrenching, Amy Harmon crafted a provocative, thought-provoking tale about first loves, second chances, and pure, unconditional love.❝Loving Mercedes wasn't like falling off a cliff. It wasn't even the heart-clenching of a missed step. It wasn't a jerk or a jostle. It wasn't tripping or tumbling at all. It was the slow climb of a lifetime of moments, the line upon line, day after day kind of love. And it was deep...

Ebullient. “I always have been. I always will be.” Amy Harmon es una de mis autoras favoritas y leerla es garantía, es una de las pocas que me hace sentir lo que estoy leyendo y que hace que mis feelings estén a flor de piel.
