Review of Pieces Of One, Part 2 (The Dark Life Collection, #2) by S.V.C. Ricketts

¸.•*´¨) Trista (¸.•´
Within the last few weeks I’ve been stalked, almost raped, witnessed a murder, and found out I am working with the FBI. All because of that slutty tramp, Marvy. Mind you, I did have my first sexual experience with a smoking hot guy, so there’s that…but I still hate her.

´*•.¸ Marvy .¸.•*
That wimpy cry-baby blames me for everything which is total joke! If it were up to me, I wouldn’t have gone back to the club without a gun. Now I’m stuck with that jerk-off, Bryson, hiding from people that want to see me dead.

¸.•*´¨) Trista (¸.•´
I’m supposed to be getting the dirt on Bryson, but truth of the matter is, I think I’m falling for the scumbag. He did kill someone to protect me, but he’s the reason he had to. Sigh. I don’t know what to think about him. He doesn’t know about my secrets. Or maybe he does.
The only man I can trust is Alex. But he doesn’t know where I am thanks to Bryson. I love them both in ways that are completely different—kind of like my alters.

Wat a friggin’ mess! Dez two are idjits!

Book TWO in a three part dark suspense/contemporary romance series. Be warned: IT HAS A CLIFFHANGER ENDING!

Overall Rating:  5 Rockin’ ★★★★

Are you ready to delve into the many lives of Trista Dividir? Learn what makes her tick? Have your questions from Part 1 answered?  Pieces of One, Part 2 by SVC Ricketts is truly an amazing five star read.  Ms. Ricketts has created an unique storyline that is reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic movie, The Many Faces of Eve. While at the same time it is so much more. I love the way this book flows seamlessly from the first book and also the way it ends with a totally unexpected twist. To say that this book is anything but extraordinary is an understatement!  In Part 2 we learn more about the relationship Bryson and Trista share and it will enthrall, elate and break your heart!

Trista’s demons are not the usual ones.  She lives with multiple alter egos that co-inhabit her body.  In this second part of the Pieces of Me Trilogy, we delve into those different alters but also explore the developing love story between Trista and Bryson.  The author's use of alters was eye opening and insightful into the way Trista lives and what occurred in her past to cause her psyche to split.  Trista doesn’t know about all of them at the beginning of this book but as the storyline progresses she learns about them and how they support her.  The way they are used to support Trista and each other is brilliant and a remarkable part of the plot.

Bryson is a protector.  He is a man that loves deeply and is intensely loyal. His feelings for Trista are all inclusive and he will do anything for her, including killing those that mean her harm. Finding a way to safely get out of his mob ties to the Crotian mafia known as the KK and at the same time keep the woman he loves safe is a difficult path, but Bryson accepts it.  No cost is too much, if it means she is safe!

The conclusion not only offers a huge, what in the hell moment, but it provides a transition that allows us a glimpse of where book three begins. In all honesty, I urge you to read this book.  You will be stunned, amazed and left utterly speechless as the uniqueness of Ms. Ricketts' imagination unfolds page after page. Her writing style compiled with the twists and turns of the storyline makes this a one-of-a-kind-knock-your-socks-off-read!
