Pieces of Me by N.R. Walker

Justin's recovery is slow, but any step forward is a win in Dallas' eyes. Having always been a source of strength for Justin, even before the accident, Dallas is trying to find his feet again as he struggles to get some normalcy back in their lives.

But now, with added financial pressures and Justin's ongoing medical needs, Dallas isn't sure how much longer he can be the strong one.

As missing pieces of Justin's memory return, Justin realises the physical side of their relationship is another piece of the puzzle he desperately wants to put back together. And as he gets to know Dallas all over again, he realises what his mind can't remember, his heart can't forget.

You must read the first book because this one picks up right where it left off. Holy crap on a cracker! I bawled my eyes out reading the first book, and I was on pins and needles through this book. Ugh... I just love Dallas so much; he is such a great guy. Justin has made progress and I couldn't wait to see how things ended. I honestly wanted more. I want to see more of their life, they are so good together. I want to read these books again and relive this wonderful relationship. Hands down, one of my top five for this story type.

The second Missing Pieces book is just as brilliant and just as heart wrenching as the first story. At the start of the story, Justin is home but increasingly frustrated with his memory loss and the slow recovery from his physical injuries. And while Dallas is relieved to have Justin home, he is starting to panic about outstanding bills and the strain their absences have placed on his business.

It sounds bleak – but as with the first book, the impossible situations the men face are offset by the humour and hope that underscore both books. I admit to crying a few times – but I’m pretty sure they were happy tears. There is something about the contrast between Dallas and Justin’s very ordinary lives and their intense devotion to each other that makes just about anything seem possible.

I love that there aren’t any miracles during Justin’s recovery. And I love that he gets angry and frustrated and he lashes out at Dallas. In this second book, we get to know the other people in Dallas and Justin’s lives and I love the growing community that surrounds the couple.

These books are two of my favourites of 2020. I have loved Dallas and Justin’s story and I’m kinda hoping we get a third book. The writing is beautiful and the characters and their story is very special.

Justin is now at home and Dallas is helping him with his recovery. Dallas is also dealing with running his business and issues with money as he awaits to hear from his insurance company. He is carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. But he continues to show what a great guy he is by putting Justin’s needs first and it seems Dallas can’t do a thing wrong. Even Justin thinks so.

Pieces of Me focuses on the relationship between Justin and Dallas, their home life, and Justin’s recovery. I loved seeing this couple spending time together doing basic things – snuggled on the couch, enjoying cuddles and kisses, and even doing mundane tasks. After the trauma Justin and Dallas have been through, seeing them enjoy the simple things in life is lovely.

Even though Justin and Dallas have some real struggles in Pieces of Me, I found this to be a warm and comforting read. I look forward to reading Pieces of Us, the conclusion of this love story.

N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.

She is many things: a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.

She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things... but likes it even more when they fall in love.

She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.

She’s been writing ever since...
