*Blog Tour* Picking up the Pieces by Jessica Prince

TITTLE: Picking up the Pieces (Picking up the Pieces #1)


AUTHOR: Jessica Prince


GENRE: Contemporary Romance, Women's fiction


RELEASE DATE: July 2 , 2013






After having her heart broken by the only man she’s ever loved everything seemed to go downhill for Emerson Grace. It has taken eight years but Emmy is finally starting to pick up the pieces of her damaged life. But the man who destroyed it has returned bringing with him the pain of the past. Can she let go of the pain Luke caused and accept him back into her life or will the memories be too much for her to overcome?

Running from Emmy was the only way Lucas Allen knew he could protect her from the demons he carried with him. After spending one perfect night together Luke takes off, certain that he can’t possibly give Emmy everything she deserves. Now he’s made the decision to return to Cloverleaf and make things right. But is he prepared to truly face all of the damaged he has caused?

Will Luke and Emmy finally get their chance at love or will the secrets of the past stop them before they even get to begin?


"I came back because I had to. I've regretted leaving you for eight years, and I had to see if there was any chance you could forgive me."

I wanted to melt back into him when he said that. But for my own self preservation I couldn't.

"I can't promise you anything Luke. I don't know if you and I can ever get to where we were before."

He ran his finger lightly down my cheek. "I've got to try Emmy. Losing you was the worst thing that's ever happened to me. I've at least got to try to earn your forgiveness."



I'm a wife, mother, wino, coffee addict and avid a lover of all types of books, but romances are my main favs. My husband likes to say reading is my obsession but I just say it's my passion... there's a difference. 

I've been writing since I was a little kid and I finally decided to take the leap and actually publish when Picking up the Pieces came to me. Now that I've been bitten by the writing bug I just can't seem to stop.

Picking up the Pieces is the debut novel for Jessica Prince, and the girls done good.

Emmy has been through a lot in the years since Luke left, she has been through far more than he can possibly imagine, so when he returns to Cloverleaf he isn’t expecting the hostile reaction from both her friends and his old friends. He knew it wasn’t going to be easy to win back her love & trust but he really had no idea how hard.

Following their one night together Luke leaves, believing he is doing the right thing,  leaving Emmy to pick up the pieces of her broken heart, with the support of her friends she kind of does but she has a fragile heart so when Luke shows up her friends rally round her. Savannah what an amazingly feisty character, the sort of friend we all want in our lives.

I found myself frustrated by Luke, he may well have thought he was doing the right thing by leaving but how he could be so blind to how much he would hurt Emmy by leaving it made me want to slap him just ever so slightly.

No spoilers here – but once the secret is out your heart will hurt and there may be some tears shed.  I’m rooting for them to be reunited even after everything we learn and I think you will be too.

Now the Epilogue – those last few lines were perfect! Yep Perfect!

It was a pleasure to be involved in Jessica’s first blog tour and I’m sure there will be many more.
