Publisher's Summary

Can three broken pieces make a whole?
Josiah Evans is the orphan who lost both his parents. He's sweet, shy, and all heart. He wants nothing more than to be loved.
Mateo Sanchez is the son of a gang leader. He's seen it all, and never hesitates to do what needs to be done, no matter what it is.
Tristan Croft is the wealthy attorney who clawed his way up from the bottom to rule his own world. He'll never depend on anyone but himself again.
Three men who couldn't be more different and yet, as their lives intersect, they find an uncommon balance that calms the storms inside each of them, and ignites fires hotter than they ever thought imaginable.
Told in three parts and spanning over 10 years, Broken Pieces is a journey of healing for three fragmented souls, finding love in the unlikeliest of places - with each other.

Teo is done to PERFECTION- awesome all around

I was shocked to find out I’d never formally reviewed this book as it’s one of my favorites, and in the top 5 for all time favorite ménage stories.
What I love about this story is the deep, deep connection all three develop. While part of me wanted Teo and Josiah to make it work on their own, once Tristan is introduced and Teo returns, it becomes so clear that Teo and Josiah need someone like Tristan to smooth out their edges. Tristan – there’s no mistaking all that he gains from Josiah, but from Teo he gets the strength that he wouldn’t have the balls to take on without Josiah in the picture. Teo, too, needs Josiah as intermediary or he’d never let himself get close to a man like Tristan, though he needs someone with his strong will.

The first 2/3 of the book is hard. Very hard. These men all suffer greatly before getting their happiness. The writing is beautiful and the characters are so well developed that the angst didn’t bother me. Knowing they all end up together helps too!

Riley Hart is a talented writer and this is one of her best books to date. Her little touches like Tristan counting his pulse, Teo giving Josiah a Queen, the imagery found in Teo's lens... all these details contribute to a lovely, well-developed story that shows without "telling" and leads the reader/listener through a story that is gripping, gritty and as realistic as something like this can be.

I highly recommend this and it’s sequel.

Audio
Jack DuPont is a new to me narrator and he blew my mind with this narration! He MASTERED Teo and really does him justice. (Teo is one of my favorite MCs of all time, so I was delighted with Jack’s performance of him.) He really got Teo’s accent right and his gruff demeanor. He also managed to keep Josiah softer but not effeminate. I liked his Tristan as well, sort of grouchy but tender, too. It’s so apparent when a narrator really understands what they’re performing and Jack clearly has a great grasp of timing and emotion and setting the scene. I just loved this performance and this book and highly recommend it to everyone.
