Emotional start to a stunning duet

Pieces of Us is the first book in the Second Chance Sinners duet, and it is such an emotional male/male romance. Lots of drama, young love and struggling with identity as Ethan and Zeke connect.

The writing and material is so wonderfully emotional. Ethan and Zeke both have had very hard childhoods, and when they find solace in each other, you really feel their connection. But by the end of this installment, they are separated and warring with each other. Listening to them come together is beautiful, just as listening to them fall apart is completely heartbreaking.

Narration by JF Harding and Aaron Shedlock is amazing. They're both so open and raw, and really enhance the material.

Trigger warnings for addiction, abuse.

Wow!!

I almost never read/listen to books out of order. I read the Spearman Series and was so interested in Hannah’s relationship with “The Guys” that I listened to this one. I went in thinking Ethan was the strong guy because he always took care of Hannah but after this book I learned he’s not strong at all. I’m so happy I dove into this book and learned their story. I only hope part 2 doesn’t leave me crying!!

Loved everything about this book

Wow!!!
The narration by JF Harding and Aaron Sherlock was spot on, they did a wonderful job with the emotions and the pain the characters went through in this emotional journey.

What a fantastic start to the new Second Chance Sinners Series and if Pieces of Us is anything to go by this is going to be a wonderful, emotional, hit series for the very talented Ms Burgoa.
Ethan Killian and Zeke Hutchence’s emotional MM story captivated and drew me in from the first page and there was no putting down until I had read the final line. You know very soon into a book that you have a very special story in your hands and Pieces of Us is one of those stories, it’s a beautifully written, heartbreaking story that will have you taking stock of your life as you join Ethan and Zeke on their journey.
Ethan and Zeke have a history, they met and bonded over their love of music when they were sixteen, both trying to forget their awful childhoods. They have come together again with Tucker, Patrick and Hannah forming the group Sinners of Seattle and the last thing they want is the rest of the band to find out the relationship they share but in the end thats a secret will nearly destroy them. Ethan has finally found his place in the world, he is successful and moving on whike Zeke is still struggling and spending his life in and out of rehab ......
That’s all I’m going to say about this emotional read because I believe you need to read this book with no preconceived idea, it’s a story that has all the feels and at times my heart broke as I got to know Ethan and Zeke, it’s complicated, it’s raw and it’s deep but I guarantee this love story will stay with you long after finishing this book.
This book does end on one massive cliffhanger that I didn’t see coming so be warned, Pieces of Us has left me wanting more and I can’t wait for the next book, Somehow Finding Us.

The feels! An emotional story!

Pieces of Us by Claudia Burgoa, narrated by JF Harding and Aaron Shedlock, is the first book in the Second Chance Sinners duet and it is full of all the feels! Ethan and Zeke’s story captivated me from the start. We meet Ethan and Zeke when they were young and we get to experience their connection from the start. The chemistry they share is undeniable, but life is never easy and choices are difficult and takes them on separate paths. My heart broke for them. Their journey is not an easy one. And as this is book one in the duet, it will leave you hanging, but I devoured every minute of it!

Happy listening!

Pieces of Us

Claudia Burgoa brings her A-game to the first book of the Second Chance Sinners Duet.

Zeke and Ethan's book is well written, emotional, and hard to put down. They have each been through so much, from difficult childhoods to their band to trying to figure out their relationship.

There's drama, heartache, and characters and you can't help but to be invested in their journey and eventual HEA. As this is the first book in the duet there is a cliffhanger and lots more story left to go. I can't wait to find out what happens next!

Emotional

Zeke and Ethan's story took me by surprise. When meeting them in Hannah's story I didn't get the impression that there was so much angst and trouble within the band. I was sad that Ethan especially was such a mess and pushed Zeke away. It was surprising to me to see where he had come from and what truly was behind the CEO rock god.

Ethan and Zeke were the same in the fact that they grew up without a lot of family and love and they both craved that. Ethan denied who he is and Zeke didn't see himself as loveable.

This is book 1 of a duet and really digs into their back story and what caused the rift between them. It was emotional and at times hard to read since I wanted to shake Ethan, but the story was good and I can't wait to get to book 2!

These narrators did a good job. The only thing to me was that their voices were very similar so sometimes I would get lost with which character was "talking". They did a great job though.

Love it

Pieces of Us by C. Burgoa is the first book in the Second Chance Sinners Series. The book is not a stand-alone.
It's Zeke and Ethan's story. Both are teenagers and already through a lot when they meet. Their lives never were sunshine and roses and they carry a lot of issues. After finding friends and becoming a family all of them still have issues, secrets and the scars to prove it.
Pieces of Us intoduces the members of SCS, the rock band, their members, how they grew, grewup, become famous, fail and simply try to live their lives. Accompanied by tragedy, devastating losses, but also love, the storyline spans many years.

I started reading and was enthralled with the story. I loved meeting characters from previous books, loved learning what happened to them, loved to read how they found their hea, found love, settled ina good life.

But the story did a number on me. It's an absolutely heart-wrenching tearjerker. POU put me through the wringer with a story that gave me all the feels, had me in knots, had me in tears more than one time. POU deals with sensitive subject - consider you warned and be prepared to have tissues at hand.
I wish I could give more than five stars. I recommend the book and can't wait for the next installment.

Powerful and Compelling Love Story!

I was so excited to read Zeke and Ethan's story after seeing glimpses of them in previous books. I was not prepared for their powerful and compelling love story, that left me completely stunned and speechless! Zeke and Ethan come from heartbreaking pasts. Thanks to the loving kindness of the the Hades and the Colthurst-Decker families, they have found safety, direction, and a place to call home. When they become roommates, Zeke and Ethan's first impressions cause them to keep their distance. But when they need each other most, they are there for each other. They enjoy learning and creating music and soon form a strong bond and band together along with Hannah, Tucker and Rocco. The bands connections become so strong, they will do anything to support and protect each other. Zeke and Ethan share the closest bond, but only in private. They are both bi-sexual, but Ethan is afraid to show his love for Zeke openly because of his past. This is frustating for them both, causing Zeke to find love elsewhere, breaking both their hearts even more. This heartbreak is the perfect recipe for making music and it quickly explodes on the internet, thrusting them into a world none of them are prepared for. Their story will take you on a roller coaster of events and emotions that is totally addicting. My heart broke for both Zeke, and Ethan as they struggled with their feelings of sadness, frustration, anger, love and hope. Burgoa wrote a story that is so emotionally intense and heart-achingly beautiful, while making me care so deeply for these wonderfully broken characters. Zeke and Ethan go through more than anyone should have to endure. I felt their intense need to be close, their fear and insecurities, their passion, and their explosive chemistry that leaps right off the page. I loved catching up with the whole Decker clan and the Hades family. They are a huge part of this story as they continue to prove how fiercely loyal, loving, and supportive they are. This story is a rollercoaster of emotion and angst, with plot twists that will keep you totally engaged and will linger in your thoughts long after you turn the last page.
I devoured this book when I read it, but listening to it made it even more breathtaking with JF Harding, and Aaron Shedlock's amazing narration. They do a great job evolving Ethan and Zeke's turbulent relationship thru their rollercoaster journey making me feel all the angst, heartbreak, and passion they felt. I always enjoy Aaron Shedlock but this is my first listen to JF Harding and I was completely captivated by his performance.
I was totally stunned at the end, and can't wait to find out what happens next in 'Somehow Finding Us', book #2 in the Second Chance Sinners duet!
