Missing Pieces Series, Book Three
As Justin’s recovery moves forward, Dallas dares to hope their lives are settling into their new normal. His money worries have eased, business is picking up, and best of all, Justin now laughs more than he frowns.
Justin’s memory still eludes him, but with each snippet or flashback, small pieces of his old life start to slot into place. He remembers more of Dallas and how perfectly happy their lives used to be, and with each passing day, Justin realises he can have that again.
But when someone from Justin’s past turns up, he discovers that not all the missing pieces are good, and sadly, he and Dallas also learn just what it means to live with a traumatic brain injury.
If Dallas and Justin have to fight for their Happily Ever After, then Dallas will stop at nothing—nothing—to give Justin the life he always wanted.
“. . . as I tried to put the puzzle of myself back together, it was the pieces of us that made me whole.”

Juss got up from his seat and sat on my lap. I had to pull my chair out a bit so he could fit, but he just sat right down and put his arm around my shoulder, his forehead pressed to mine. “Remember how you said we choose our own family?”
“Well, I’ve chosen mine.” He kissed me soundly. Then he picked up my fork and stabbed some meat and brought it to my lips. “Open wide.”
I laughed and he shoved the fork in my mouth. “You’re gonna feed me?” I asked.
“For all the times you helped me, now it’s your turn.”
He continued to feed me until my plate was empty and he even had some more of his own. It was fun and cute, we laughed a lot, and it had been far too long since we’d done anything fun and cute. The fact that he punctuated every forkful with a kiss made it even better.
He put the fork down and turned his full attention to me. “You know,” he said with a kiss. “I slept a lot today, so I’m not too tired.”
I chuckled because I was pretty sure I knew where he was going with this. “Is that so?”
He kissed me again, a little softer, more playful. “And we did get those test results back.”
I hummed, not too sure if he was up for anything rigorous. “You’re supposed to be on bed rest.”
He smiled. “So take me to bed.”
What a great wrap up to this three book series.
Justin is still in recovery mode from his accident. Dallas is still cheering him on. They get some good financial news that eases everyone’s minds. But just like winning the lottery, people come out of the woodwork with their hands out.
What happened after Justin’s mother showed up was scary. I just couldn’t believe that after everything he had been through, now this. But I also appreciated that there could be BIG set backs with a TBI. Caused by something you would probably never expect.
I will say that I LOVED Dallas’ reaction to Justin’s mother. I had been waiting for some sort of something to get a visceral reaction from him. He was always so calm, happy and encouraging on the outside to Justin and the guys in the shop. He never let anyone see his stress. Really, he needed it.
I also loved that maybe they wouldn’t get the perfect recovery, the perfect ending, all of Justin’s memories flooding back. It just made it all the more real.
Read these books. They are so good. The love that these men have for each other practically makes the pages glow. Obvious research was done into TBI and all of the after effects it can have, both physical and mental.
And because it is in 3 parts, it is very easy to take a break if they become too heavy. But I don’t think that they do.
