Rhett Taylor has a reputation to live up to. He’s the small town hero everyone expects to lead the team to victory. But looks can be deceiving, and the pressure unbearable – even after he confides in Kinsley West.
She may not have been the obvious choice to others, but he chose her anyway. Thanks to her newfound popularity, Kinsley’s no longer living in the shadow of her older brother. For once, she has an identity of her own.
But what builds quickly, often comes tumbling down. Piece by piece they find out how unpredictable young love can be. Can their love stand the test of time? Or will it be captured, only to be forgotten?
A roll of film sets their story in motion.
Each frame better than the last.
But the real test comes when their whirlwind romance forces Kinsley to protect their secret – especially if she wants a future. Only Kinsley isn’t sure she can do it – not if she’s going to be left behind In Pieces.

A beautiful story of finding true love when and where you least expect it.
Kinsley has faced tragedy in her young life, with the death of her mother and the subsequent abandonment by her father. Kinsley and her 2 older siblings have had to take on a lot of responsibility since that time, leaving little free time to think of anything but working and paying bills. With her best friend, Becca, by her side and her protective older brother finally gone off to college, Kinsley is determined to enjoy her senior year in high school.
Rhett, star of the high school football team, has noticed Kinsley for the past couple years, but has had to bide his time til Kinsley’s brother graduated. Unbeknownst to Kinsley, her brother had threatened him and the other teammates to not touch Kinsley. Rhett now has the opportunity to convince Kinsley of his true feelings and wants to show her that while she might have lost others she loved, she can count on him to stay.
Kinsley decides to take a chance on Rhett and soon the two are falling head over heels in love. But is young love able to endure and overcome the multiple challenges they will face? Or will both Rhett and Kinsley’s hearts be left In Pieces?
I loved this book from beginning to end. Both Rhett and Kinsley were very likeable characters and seeing their relationship grow was so very sweet. With this book, I was dying to go back to my old habit of reading the end first and it was such a struggle at times but I am so very glad that I had the willpower to stay strong and not spoil the book for myself. I have been a Gia Riley fan since Between the Pain and love everything she writes. She knows how to tug at the heart strings every time and leave you feeling every emotion possible. I can’t wait to see what Gia comes up with next!!
