Pieces Banner    
Title: Pieces Of Paisley
Author: Leigh Ann Lunsford
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 8, 2014
Paisley Hull fell in love at sixteen; the forever kind of love: unexpected, passionate, consuming - her first. She never thought she could walk away from that kind of passion. Ignoring her heart, guided by her head, she never looked back.

Blindsided by the beauty of a tiny, hazel-eyed vixen, Jake Grant fell head over heels in love, vowing to keep her protected and not let his past taint her. He may have been overzealous in his attempts to show her how much he cherished her but he never thought she would walk away without a fight.

Nine years later, a now divorced Jake has a chance encounter with an engaged Paisley just a few short weeks before she is set to walk down the aisle. Wondering if they gave up too easily, the two embark on a journey through the jagged edges of their past. Can they overcome the obstacles to finally become one or is it too late for their second chance?

What happens when you meet the love of your life at sixteen years old?

Paisley is young and naïve, spunky and sassy.  At sixteen, she meets twenty year old Jake and their attraction is undeniable.  They spend the summer together and fall madly into each other.  Real life takes over and Paisley returns to school while Jake continues on in the Navy.  Distance and Jake's deployments take a toll on them but they are committed to each other and their relationship.

Jake's lies and Paisley's immaturity eventually drive them apart.  Life goes on for them both but as the years go by, neither really gets over the other.  Everyone deserves a second chance they say and fate seems to think Jake and Paisley have one coming.

A friend of mine recommended Pieces of Paisley to me months ago.  I decided to check it out on Amazon and as soon as I saw the cover, I wasn't feeling it.  I'm so embarrassed to admit this but I totally judged a book by its cover.  LOL!  If you are a cover snob like me, don't let this one scare you off!

The story starts off light and fun ... I loved the summer that Jake and Paisley spent together and the early stages of their relationship.  But young love can be the most heart-breaking and this story proves that.  

I am a sucker for second chance romances and really liked this one!  Jake and Paisley's story hooked me from the beginning and I devoured the book to find out whether or not they'd get their HEA.  If you enjoy books about young love, second chances, military relationships, or strong friendships, I think you will enjoy Pieces of Paisley!
