Sometimes, to reach the surface you have to fall to the bottom first....
For the past 10 years, Riley Davis' life has been overshadowed by the tragic death of his partner. Fluctuating between alcohol-induced daze, clinical depression, and throwing all of his time and effort into his business, Riley doesn't believe, or even hope, that his life will ever be worth living again.
That's until Sonnie Frye drops by his haberdashery shop, changing his life forever.
Sonnie is a man who likes getting what he wants, when he wants it. He's worked hard to establish himself as Queen Victoria theatre's chief costume designer, collecting multiple awards - and high-profile clients - along the way. Sonnie is used to putting his needs, goals, and desires first, unwilling to compromise his own happiness for anybody else.
That's until he meets a handsome shop owner whose eyes are so sad that they immediately tug at Sonnie's heartstrings.
Seeing something he wants, Sonnie is determined to get under Riley's skin and, preferably, into his bed. But he soon discovers the task is not that easy. For the first time in his life, Sonnie may need to put someone else's needs before his own and re-evaluate what really matters in life.
Will the two men stand side-by-side to overcome their differences and everything else life throws at them? Or, will it all become too much to bear, shaking them to their very core, destroying everything they've worked so hard to achieve?
Piece by Piece is a stand-alone novel. It's the full story of Sonnie and Riley.

I loved this, great easy listen.
The love that they had for each other finally shining through.
"I can put him back together," Sonnie replied. They might as well get it all out in the open.
"Yeah? And how the hell are you going to do that when nobody succeeded in the past ten years?" Penn asked, anger lacing his words.
Sonnie squared his shoulders, standing up to his full height, not appreciating being doubted. "Piece by piece."
This is where Sonnie is telling Penn he is good enough for Riley.
I loved Riley
I wouldn't change it, it is so right.
Ok so I received the Audiobook from Teodora, and can honestly say that I really enjoyed this emotional rollercoaster of a book. Riley broke my heart and with Sonnie's help rebuilt my heart piece by piece as he did with Riley
Heartbreaking, sweet, cathartic

This audiobook was a gift from the author, and I'm so thankful. My heart hurt in so many places, but I like how the MCs dug into themselves (with lots of encouragement from each other) to improve their own lives. Also, as with Dance, I like that the MCs were not GFY nor hyper masculine.
To make it short this book was just amazing and borderline perfectly written. Great story, lovelly characters and amazing performance. You'll be captivated from the start to the end. You can indeed fall in love again, but you must heal first.
I read Dance and loved it. This book not so much, Spoiler! I couldn't understand why anyone wants to read about misery. This is what this was a man who lost his love burried himself in work and couldn't move on for years. He met Sonny and thought he could move on but he flopped at it. Sonny wants a hot man but had to work at a relationship to get Riley out of his funk and he wasn't very likable, he couldn't demand that Riley changed he let Riley be himself. I don't want to spoil it but both men failed to me. Then after splitting up to find themselves one in another country and limited communication. I was surprised that Sonny maintained his fidelity since he never had a long term committed relationship and they weren't in one. It had a HEA ending. This all is just my opinion since I paid for this audible book. Sorry I want to listen to books where men are happy to be together and fall in love easier.
You didn't even realize how hot Riley was until the end. Large chest slim hips long powerful legs. When I was reading earlier I thought he was just a nerdy long haired self absorbed man.
Terrible narration. The tone was all wrong.
