      As you begin to read Pieces of it All you might think that this is your typical good-girl-meets-bad-boy-they-fall-in-love-and-bad-boy-changes-to-be-with-girl. While the female character, Beth, is a good girl and Harvey is a bad boy do not expect your typical storyline or ending. This book captivated me from beginning to end. Beth has just graduated from high school and Harvey, who is 22 years old, has just returned to their small town after being away for a couple of years, and the two meet by c [...]

      This is a refreshing read and not your typical New Adult romance. This book was about moving forward and finding your place in this world, while paying for the mistakes of your past. The story as a whole was really good and different, and honed in on some dark issues. The beginning started out a tad slow, but quickly picked up, and was full of surprising twists and turns that kept me turning the page. Harvey and Beth were both likeable characters, and their relationship was definitely full of ch [...]

      There are times when I look for something really different, a story outside the norm of its genre, and PIECES OF IT ALL fits the bill perfectly. This is not a New Adult novel about broken people fixing each other with sex that we so often see nowadays. PIECES centers on Beth and Harvey, both starting new chapters of their lives. Beth has graduated high school and has a whole summer in front of her before starting college in the fall. She's smart, capable, and maybe just a little naive. A totally [...]

      I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Unfortunately this book was not for me. There were many times when I wanted to stop reading it as I just could not get into it, but I hoped that it would get better so I did finish it and just did not do it for me. I did not feel any connections between the characters. At first I liked Harvey he was believable that he wanted to change but then he started stealing then it was over for me. I know he had lots of issues and he was trying to conn [...]

      *** I received a copy of this story in exchange for a honest review.***I just couldn't connect to this story at all. The way Beth acted with her best friends seemed off, the way Harvey and Beth meet is a little unbelievable, do people still ask random strangers for cooking supplies? Harvey is not a likeable character at all. At times when I was reading from Harvey's pov, his thoughts almost reminded me of a completely deranged psychopath, not a troubled alcoholic. And, I find it hard to believe [...]

      “Pieces of it All” is such an enthralling read. At first it appeared to be a ordinary boy meets girl tale, but there is nothing ordinary about this emotionally charged novel. It starts off with Beth, trying to find her way through life. When she meets Harvey- that is when they are both able to help each other reconcile their pasts and their inner demons. “Pieces of it All” was such a unique book, with so many plot twists, that you couldn’t possibly see any of it coming. I can not remem [...]

      Maybe I'm missing something here? Did I not read what everyone else read? I'm hesitant to leave negative reviews, but I agreed to give an honest review in exchange for a free copy. I had hard time engaging with the characters and story from the beginning.What I liked:I liked Beth. She was caring, smart, and trying to take risks, which I can appreciate. Some of her more racy thoughts kind of felt like that came out of left field for me, but hey, whose to say a goody girl can't have some dirty tho [...]

      "All it took, though, was the one person. Once the right person walked into your life, you did everything possible to make sure they didn't walk right back out. She wanted Harvey to stay. At least for awhile."First love. For some, it's sweet and innocent. For others, it's something they would love to forget. For Beth Overland, it was what would forever change her life."If given the chance to let loose, this man sitting across from her would be the one to do it with."Beth had just graduated high [...]

      (Read this review and more at Pretty Bookmarks)Disclaimer: I received a review copy c/o the author in exchange for an honest review.Remember when they used to tell you don't judge a book by its cover? Yeah, this book is exactly that.Admittedly the cover isn't the most gorgeous thing, but it's story is something worth reading. I went into this a little skeptical, but I sooned got immersed in the story.The main premise of this story is about Harvey who just got out of rehab and college bound Beth [...]

    11. Sarah LaFleur on said:

      Tracy Krimmer’s Pieces of it All is not your typical romance novel. I read an early version of this book and the end product is such an improvement! The story follows Beth, a recent high school graduate as she meets Harvey and falls in love for the first time. So what’s the problem? Harvey has a sordid past that threatens to thwart his best efforts to overcome it. Along the way Beth starts working for her Aunt’s cleaning business and Harvey’s kleptomaniac tendencies become too much for h [...]

      This Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest ReviewGood girl meets bad boy and falls in love and the bad boy changes to be with her. The end. Not in this book. Harvey has a trouble past that includes alcohol, theft, and a bad family history. He ends up in rehab and after 8 months returns home. Beth is just graduated from high school and is looking forward to having some fun before college. She has always been the good girl that studied and got good grades. Beth wants a relat [...]

    13. Karan Eleni on said:

      What a remarkable story! To watch a young Wisconsin woman graduate (so close to home!!), meet someone and fall quickly, learn so much about herself, so little about the boy she spends her days with, deal with family and friend issues and go through so many different emotions in such a short period of time, all before setting off for college, just wow.Tracy kept me guessing with this one. When I thought I had figured out a piece of the puzzle, she turned a corner and I was wrong. In cases like th [...]

    14. Carol Maloney Scott on said:

      At first I wasn't sure I would like this book. It isn't what I normally read. However, I loved it as the story progressed and I felt more invested in the characters. Even though I am a middle aged woman, I could relate to Beth's story. Rebelling against overprotective parents is part of my past, and I understand both sides of the fence when it comes to protecting our child and the child wanting to break free. All of the characters are believable, and I didn't need to like Harvey. I did like him [...]

    15. Andy Mascola on said:

      Pieces of it All is a cautionary tale that seesaws primarily between the lives of a teen protagonist named Beth and a slightly older love interest named Harvey. Beth has a heart of gold. As she graduates from high school, we watch Beth balance family, responsibilities, new and old friends, and an attraction to a young man (Harvey) with a mysterious past. Through Tracy Krimmer's skilled storytelling we're able to see not only Beth's optimistic and caring view of her world, but we observe firsthan [...]

    16. Jayne Denker on said:

      Pieces of It All was refreshing in its uniqueness. Instead of a couple of annoying, navel-gazing, self-proclaimed "broken" young adults, the two main characters in Pieces had real problems, real conflicts, and believable drama. In Harvey, Tracy paints the perfect, heartbreaking portrait of a young man heading over a cliff, doomed early after losing his mother at a young age and being raised by an abusive, alcoholic father. Most important, the notion of his being able to be "saved" by innocent, t [...]

    17. Kathryn Biel on said:

      I was pleased with the uniqueness of this story line, especially in the young adult genre. It is not your typical good girl meets bad boy cliche story. At times, I was frustrated with the main characters, Beth and Harvey, for their poor choices and quick-trigger reactions. I found myself saying, "No, don't do that!" However, considering she is 18 and he is an emotionally-stunted, recovering alcoholic 22 year-old, I think Ms. Krimmer's portrayal was spot on. At times, the growing pains were almos [...]

    18. Trina on said:

      Lately it seems that I have been reading a lot of young adult novels because they tend to be more captivating and less serious. When I stumbled across this book I was intrigued but skeptical. It sounded like typical romance novel that would be predictable. I was pleasantly surprised. I started reading and was hooked. I took it with me wherever I went and read every chance I got. What I expected to happen was not always the case I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next. I alway [...]

    19. Renee on said:

      I love Tracy Krimmer's style. I have read a few of her other books and adored how emotionally engaged I became with the characters. I went into this one expecting something similar. I had an emotional response, but this time it was a dislike for one of the main characters. I really wanted to slap some sense into the boy! I loved the way Tracy twisted the story around and kept me guessing. The ending was not what I was expecting, but it just felt right. This book isn't a typical, straight up roma [...]

    20. Olivia on said:

      I didn't enjoy this book. I don't like to give a negative review but there was nothing in this story that appealed to me. The characters were boring and unrealistic and there was nothing charming or witty about the dialogue. I liked the idea of a boy from the wrong side of the track trying to do good but I thought Harvey was icky and his POV turned me off even more.I have to say it is my reading pet peeve when a story rattles off exactly what every character looks like and what they wear on ever [...]

    21. Corinne on said:

      This book had me intrigued early on and kept me wanting to read more to find out what develops between the main characters Beth and Harvey. Beth just graduated from high school and has always been a bookworm and followed the rules. She then meets Harvey, the mysterious bad boy that is trying to turn his life around. The book has twists that you don't expect which is great as too many books seem to be too predictable.

    22. Daria on said:

      DNF at 30%. I'm sorry I just couldn't connect with these characters or storyline. I didn't like Beth's character and how she acts with her best friend that she loves was very unnatural. Also her chemistry with Harvey was neutral at best. I just couldn't make myself keep reading when I knew I wouldn't like it. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    23. Stephanie Gresham on said:

      This is not your typical girl meets boy, girl falls in love with boy and yadda yadda. This story focuses on two characters, Beth and Harvey. Beth who is an innocent 18 year old, recent high school graduate who falls into Harvey, the older bad boy. It shows how people deal with inner turmoil and your own demons. Not your typical ending and I'm patiently awaiting the next installment!

    24. Pat on said:

      Great summer read. Enjoyed character development and writer's style. Wish author would write a sequel. Would love to follow Harvey's and Beth's adventures in life. Anxiously awaiting author's next book.

    25. Robin Dix on said:

      I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Okay, first of all I would rate this closer to 2.5. Beth seemed like a good girl who just wanted to enjoy her last summer before school. She new she was leaving so it should have been no strings attached. Not good considering Harvey was her first. Her emotional attachment was too great. And then she moved in to Mark with quickness. I mean really. It wasn't realistic. Harvey was a complete loser. He wanted a mother figure to c [...]

      Rated:3.5 StarsReviewed by: AnneI received an ARC in exchange for an honest review I really liked the sound of this book from the blurb. It is about Beth who has just graduated high school and is about to embark on her new "grown up" life in college. She is a self proclaimed book nerd, very academic and wants to study education in college. She is very naïve, especially around boys and has to deal with both her over protective father and Lucy her best friend judging her decisions. She meets Harv [...]

      Pieces of It All gives readers a realistic look at young love. (Or should I say lust?) It took me back to a time when I wondered what it felt like to be in love and reminded me of all the times I realized what it wasn’t.Beth is a high school graduate preparing to head off to college. She’s book smart, responsible, and a good daughter and friend. She’s also innocent and naive. Harvey, on the other hand, comes from a broken family, is a recovering alcoholic, and is much more experienced with [...]

      *I received this book in exchange for an honest review*I gave this book 2 stars.I liked aspects of this book, but as a whole I did not love it. Beth is the quintessential good girl who doesn't take risks. Now on the cusp of beginning college she meets Harvey. Harvey is back home from rehab determined to keep it all together. Everyone is wary of how fast their relationship grows serious and despite the feelings they have for each other. Harvey's past and Beth's future seem to be impossible to mes [...]

    29. Heather Balog on said:

      I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It was part romance, part coming of age, part bittersweet. Beth was a naive virginal high school graduate. She had her life before her, choices endless. Along came Harvey a recovering alcoholic living with his abusive and alcoholic father. Immediately the reader feels the connection between the two. The chemistry is palpable. Harvey, while not what Beth's parents or friends want for her, seems to be a dream come true for Beth. At first, it looks like everything i [...]

    30. Ramneek on said:

      Pieces of it All was by no means a bad book but I do think it was one of those books where you quickly realise it's not your cup of tea. For that reason, I had quite a difficult time reading it and it also took me quite a while to complete. One reason I found it quite difficult to get through was the speed in which Beth and Harvey met each other and then started to like each other. Throughout the whole of the book I just kind of thought, why are they together? Their relationship just didn't seem [...]
